BANGALORE: With the growth of technology in every sector, 2014 brings us some of the updates which will be adopted in the coming months. These are the most innovative tools which comprise on your old primitive ways and give all the things you need in the newer versions with some added useful features. So here’s a small compilation made as on the popular mechanics.



#Muon Tomography: The alternative technology for the CT scanning is here, which is called’ Muon Tomography’. It is a scanning technique which uses cosmic ray muons to generate 3D images instead of the X-rays in the CT scanning. The ‘muons’ can penetrate much deeper than X-rays and have the ability to pass through shielding materials like lead, making it easier to detect nuclear materials hidden in the shipping containers. This technology is already been used by the defense departments and homeland security services.



#Semiautonomous Driving: The semi autonomous driving technology gives the control of vehicle to the driver unless the car heads for a collision. When a collision is detected, the car automatically steers away from the obstacle by taking control from the driver and bringing it back to a safe location.
