Humans always had the urge to explore each and everything, simple or complex, which directly or indirectly had bearing on them. This curiosity led the scientist and scholars to constantly put more efforts on scientific research, thereby resulting in technological advancements in every walk of life. Today, research in diversified fields such as space, engineering and technology, communication, medical sciences, etc has helped us not only in understanding the very existence of living beings but also in improving human life. From weather forecast to artificial rain, transplantation of Total Artificial Heart to robotic therapy, man-less drones doing search operations in deep sea to high speed bullet trains and driverless cars to name a few, the scientific research has brought in tremendous technological advancement and has thus proved a boon for human society.

3D Printing: Creating 3D prototypes using a digital file
3D printing, also called additive printing, allows the creation of solid structures from a digital computer file, potentially revolutionizing the economics of manufacturing if objects can be printed remotely in the home or office.
This technology, although not new, is gaining popularity these days as it helps you visualize the prototype of the design that you want to create. The process involves depositing of layers of material on top of each other to create free-standing structures from the bottom up. Blueprints from computer-aided design are sliced into cross-section for print templates, allowing virtually created objects to be used as models for �hard copies� made from plastics, metal alloys or other materials.

One of the milestones in this innovative technology was achieved recently when NASA successfully tested a component, an injector that delivers fuel to powerful Rocket Engine, developed using 3D printing technology.

Drones: A way of monitoring the deteriorating civil structures
The issue of deteriorating of civil infrastructure is increasingly becoming a critical concern across the world. A recent report in US warns that one in four bridges in the United States needs significant repair, else handling automobile traffic will be difficult and safety of people will be jeopardized.
Of all deficient elements in a bridge superstructure, the bridge deck perhaps requires the most maintenance. Today, bridges are inspected visually by teams of engineers who dangle beneath the bridge on cables or look up at the bridge from an elevated work platform. It is a slow, dangerous, expensive process and even the most experienced engineers can overlook cracks in the structure or other critical deficiencies. In order to make this process more efficient and risk-free, the Tufts University engineers are employing wireless sensors and flying robots that could have the potential to help authorities monitor the condition of bridges in real time.

Fiber-optic Communication: Transforming information age
Fiber-optic communication refers to transmitting information through optical fiber that has the capability of transmitting signals with significantly high speed. In this mechanism, optical transmitters convert electrical signals into optical signals and transmit them through optical fiber. Because of its advantage of being capable of carrying large data with high speed, exceptionally low loss in transmission, and requiring light rather than electricity, optical fiber has revolutionized information age, resulting in faster TV relays, internet speed in petabytes, faster telecommunication, etc.

Recently, Fujitsu Limited, NTT Corporation, and NEC Corporation of Japan announced that they have successfully tested the world's top-level, 400Gbps/channel-class digital coherent optical transmissions technology.

The test verified fiber-optic transmissions of 12.4 - 24.8 terabytes per second wavelength signals at distances ranging from several thousand kilometers up to 10,000 km
