Delhi teenager, Manu Chopra,  has designed a device which can be worn like a wrist watch that delivers an electric shock once it touches the attacker’s skin...

 

The average speed of nerve impulses transmitted from the brain to other parts of the body is 60 metre per second. In case of any attempt of molestation, the speed of the nerve impulses increase to 119 metre per second. It is then that this device detects the increased nerve impulse and stings the attacker with a small electric shock ...

India committed Rs 10,000 crore ( 2.5 Billion$ ) to indigenously develop the world’s fastest supercomputer by 2017. The Planning Commission agreed in principle to provide the funds to the Indian Space Research Organsiation (ISRO) and Indian Institute of Science (IIS), Bangalore to develop a supercomputer with a performance of 132.8 exaflops (132 quintillion floating operations per second). A quintillion has 18 zeros (a million has six)...

India committed Rs 10,000 crore ( 2.5 Billion$ ) to indigenously develop the world’s fastest supercomputer by 2017. The Planning Commission agreed in principle to provide the funds to the Indian Space Research Organsiation (ISRO) and Indian Institute of Science (IIS), Bangalore to develop a supercomputer with a performance of 132.8 exaflops (132 quintillion floating operations per second). A quintillion has 18 zeros (a million has six)...

 

The world’s fastest supercomputer right now is a Chinese one, which can do 2.7 petaflops, or two quadrillion flops. A quadrillion has 15 zeros. 

 

India in 2007 had the world’s fourth fastest indigenously-developed supercomputer with a performance of 172.5 teraflops (172 trillion flops), which has been enhanced this month to 220 teraflops. That’s still a level lower than China’s supercomputer.

 

The Indian supercomputer will not be used only for enhancing the country’s space abilities, it will also be used to predict monsoon and precise weather inputs to boost agriculture N Balakrishnan, associate professor at IIS-Bangalore, said the target being set is “ambitious” while referring to achieving the exaflop – or next level of computing performance -- by 2017. “We have planned everything minutely.” “We have agreed to provide R10,000 crore for having ‘exa’ level of supercomputing facility,” minister of state for planning Ashwini Kumar told HT.

 

This computer will be 50000!! times faster than the current world's fastest supercomputer, the Chinese Tianhe-1. In fact the top 500 supercomputers in the world add up to only 32.4 petaflops. In other words, this computer alone would be about 4100 times faster than the top 500 supercomputers in the world put together!1

 

America's NSA is said to have wanted a exaflop supercomputer by 2018 and CRAY inc predicted that 1 exaflop computer would be possible by 2020. But if India achieves its goal, then not only would it have beat all the predictions of exaflops, but would have beat it by a multiple of 132 times! 

 

Such a supercomputer would have massive implications for Indias science, military and even agricultural fields.

 

India is also developing its own operating system for its military/civilian research computers, known as of as the Indian operating system. DRDO(defense research & development Organization) is developing this in order to get rid of the multitude of security flaws found in most of the commercial operating systems. 

 

Go India! It is only natural that the world's fastest supercomputer should be developed by India..and doubly natural that they would be setting the bar so astronomically high compared to even the most optimistic predictions from other countries...because, Indians invented the zero and the numbers we use to this day..

We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count,
