Honda researchers have successfully created a working 3D processing chip by stacking of three different chips together consisting of a processing core ,a signal converter and a chunk of memory. 3D chips which can be considered as the future of computing bacause these processors consume only one-third of power and at the same time are twice as fast as the normal processors(2D). The breakthrough development by Honda researchers is expected to power its famous Asimo humanoid robot.
So you always yell at that CAPTCHA you need to enter always to prove that you are not machine but an innocent human. Well as the image recognition technology is gathering recognition in the industry and companies like Google are filing patents for its image recognition technology its only a matter of time that the same technology would be used by hackers to defeat CAPTCHA. After the first CAPTCHA was invented at the Carnegie Mellon University it has been used by Yahoo,Google,Microsoft and multitudes of other websites for spam detection and thereby preventing spam.

To save planet earth from evil terrorism and possible future radiological and nuclear attack , the researchers at Purdue Univ. in collaboration with State of Indiana are working on a system that would use cell phone network to detect and track radiation to help prevent nuclear terrorist attack.The network of cell phones, which already have global positioning locators, can serve as a tracking system when equipped with radiation sensors able to detect even light residues of radioactive material, said physics professor Ephraim Fischbach, who is working with Jere Jenkins, director of Purdue’s radiation laboratories within the School of Nuclear Engineering.

Researchers at University of California L.A have for the first time developed a implantable camera that would lead us to the possibilities of Bionic eye in near future. The tiny camera(Intraocular Camera for Retinal Prosthesis) developed by Michelle Hauer and her team is small enough to be implanted directly on the eye’s lens and feeds image data to a chip at the back of the eye which can be either used to aid the blind or can be used in the future robots .
