The researchers at Japan National Institute of Informatics said flashing the peace sign in photos lead to fingerprint data being stolen.

Study Says, India is in First Place in Selfie Deaths

Fingerprint technology is widely available to verify the identities such as when logging in Smartphone’s, tablets, laptops, and computers.

The reports said mobile devices with high-quality cameras and social media sites where photographs can be quickly posted is raising the risk of personal information being leaked, reports said.

The photographs which is taken three meters away with the digital camera have the possibility to copy the fingerprints.

Fingerprint data can be recreated if fingerprints are in focus with strong lighting in a picture. Isao Echizen the researchers at instate said advanced technology is not needed to copy the fingerprints.

NII said it had developed a transparent film containing titanium oxide that can be attached to fingers to hide their prints.

Jason Chaikin, the president of biometric verification company, said it is not easy to copy the fingerprints. It is very complicated, and it is the multi-step process with molds and models need to create the actual thumbprint since they are digitally lifted. He also said ultimately it is not really that much easy.

Japan Wants to Make World’s Fastest Supercomputer by 2018

Japan Wants to Make World’s Fastest Supercomputer

World’s leading technology inventor Japan wants to make world’s fastest supercomputer by 2018 and according to the reports it is going to spend $173 million for producing it. We know Japan is mostly focused on technology and science and prominent in consumer electronics, robotics, and the automobiles.

Our world is in evolution, with computerization and digitization when we take Industrial Labour into consideration. Many countries are moving fast to develop latest technologies, but Japan is one step forward every time to invent creative technologies. So, as a part of that Japan is believed to be pushing to build the world’s fastest supercomputer in an attempt to refresh its original condition.

China Has Built The World’s Fastest Supercomputer with Homegrown Technology

Officials said that they would spend $173 million on a machine capable of achieving 130 petaflops and beating current world number one, China’s Sunway TaihuLight.

Japan did not have a lovely time of it recently, with an experienced workforce and a slow-growing economy. Even it is the center of the technology world, but South Korea and China both have replaced the Japan in the electronics field. Earlier Japan was king of the supercomputing hill, and it was backed in 2011 when Fujitsu’s K Computer topped the world rankings at 10.5 petaflops.

Panasonic’s New Technology for Data Transmission Just by a Human Touch

Data Transmission Just by a Human Touch

Panasonic has developed a new data transmission system in Japan. The new device can exchange information over a human touch. A prototype of a human body was created which communicated with the device to send data up to 100Kbps through a radio field on a person’s skin. Data will be exchanged when they touch a person or an object with a suitable trans-receiver.

The device is on for an exhibit in a show at CEATEC electronics show through several color-coded demonstrations. For instance, a person can hold a color-coded ball. Data on the color of the ball is sent to the lamp, and it changes color to match when they touch a sensor connected to lamp.

Password sent via Human body is Safer than Air

The demonstrations are simple and proved the system works. Panasonic predicts that the new data transmission system will serve more practical purposes in future like exchanging contact information with people over a handshake or unlocking door by just placing a hand on a door knob.

However, the technology from Panasonic still has a long way to go for getting into a practical application like a smartphone or a wristwatch. Panasonic is confident about making the product on a smaller scale if there is a demand for such system.
