The Nobel Prize in Physics for 2014 to the inventors of blue light-emitting diode [Blue LED] has proved the importance of such developments. The LEDs, which are narrow-band light sources based on semiconductors, emit lights at different wavelengths. However, emitting blue light, which can be converted to bright white light, was difficult and required the development of a new technique. This eventually led to the invention of efficient blue LEDs that can be used to generate bright, energy-saving white lights.

Today, about 30 percent of our electrical energy is consumed in lightings only. In this scenario, the invention of blue LEDs, which consume one tenth or less energy than an ordinary incandescent light, will bring revolutionary change as it will help save electrical energy that can be utilized in other areas for mass benefit.

Augmented Reality: Adding Realism to Virtual World
Augmented reality, abbreviated as AR, is a type of virtual reality that aims to duplicate the real-world environment through devices such as computer, cell phones, and tablets. There are many applications available that you can use with your cell phones/tablets to create a virtual augmentation. In this process, the elements in the environment are augmented by device-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, or GPS data.
An augmented reality system generates a composite view for the user which is a combination of the real scene viewed by the user and a virtual scene generated by the device that augments the scene with additional information. The virtual scene generated by the device is designed to enhance the user's sensory perception of the virtual world he is seeing or interacting with. The main objective of the augmented reality is to create a virtual system that looks real to the users. Nowadays, augmented reality is being used in entertainment, military training, engineering design, robotics, manufacturing, and other industries.

Videography using Space Remote Sensing Technology: Detecting Disaster Response
This advanced Space Remote Sensing Technology has brought a revolution in the field of remote sensing. Using this cutting-edge technology, high-resolution real-time videos can be taken through satellites from a distance of more than 600 kilometers. These traditional satellites use the latest generation of two-dimensional imaging sensors, coupled with sophisticated proprietary camera on it and are capable of taking imagery at better than 1 meter resolution.

The videos thus captured provide real-time data and help monitor object as well as change detection. In addition, the change of locations such as facilities, ports, and security centers etc can be monitored using this technology. Some of the areas where this technology can be used are agriculture health monitoring, humanitarian aid, infrastructure modeling, oil storage monitoring, natural disaster response, oil and gas infrastructure monitoring, mining operations monitoring, carbon monitoring, maritime monitoring, etc.

Quake Columns: Revolutionary 3D Printing
Over the past few years, 3D printing has become more and more popular among architects and designers. They are involved in the design process which is very stressful and consumes quite a lot of time. In this sense, much time is wasted on creating Styrofoam scale models. Many architects have already adopted 3D printing into their design process and it has been possible due to the introduction of affordable 3D printers.

The advantage of 3D printing technology could go beyond its practical use. It enables architects to experiment with complex shapes and forms. One such incident took place in California in recent times. Emerging Objects, a California-based architecture firm, used a 3D printer to produce a structural column named as "Quake Column" It is made up of cement bricks that have been 3D printed. The cement bricks were designed using CAD tools so that they fit together in a vertical structure, without any mortar or rebar. These hollow bricks carry a high strength-to-weight ratio and their interlocking system does not allow them to move horizontally, thus helping them to stay stable during seismic shakes.
