Lernshift - A Pen That Corrects Your Spelling Mistakes...

Inventors from Germany have invented a pen prevents you from making spelling mistakes. Lernstift is seemingly a normal pen with regular ink, but the first even of its kind in the world because it can vibrate when you make a spelling mistake or senses the sloppy, unreadable handwriting. 

Lernshift has a built-in special motion sensor and a small battery-powered Linux computer with a Wi-Fi chip that is smart enough to detect spelling mistakes by recognizing the specific movement patterns while you write. It also recognizes the shapes of the letters and has a genuinely smart collection of words in its built-in dictionary. The vibrator starts vibrating as soon as it senses mal-formed letters and unreadable handwriting that may generate legibility issues.

Writers can choose between two options: Calligraphy Mode and Orthography Mode.
  • Calligraphy Mode - points out the flaws of form of letters and legibility
  • Orthography Mode - recognizes words and comparing each word to a language database - built-in dictionary.

NASA researchers have spotted a tiny new moon - named S/2004 N1, revolving Neptune. This moon is the smallest one to orbit Neptune and is not more than about 12 miles across according to the observations by NASA. According to NASA the newly discovered star is approximately 100 million times fainter than the dimmest star that can be seen with the naked eye.
This discovery was almost an accident. Astronomers discovered the moon by spotting out a white dot that was found in more than 150 photos taken by Hubble Space telescope between the years 2004 and 2009. The presence of the moon was not officially confirmed until on July 1, 2013 Mark Showalter of the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, found the moon in the course of his study with the faint arcs around Neptune. Mark said, "the moons and arcs orbit very quickly, so we had to devise a way to follow their motion in order to bring out the details of the system." He added, "it's the same reason a sports photographer tracks a running athlete — the athlete stays in focus, but the background blurs."

The moon takes approximately 23 hours to orbit Neptune once. According to NASA, S/2004 N1 is the 14th known moon to circle Neptune. This moon is so small small that the Voyager spacecraft could not detect it in the year 1989 when it passed close by Neptune, surveying Neptune's system of moons and rings.

Corpse-eating fly that was already officially declared to be extinct approximately 160 years ago, came back again European researchers have rediscovered the fly that had been assumed to be disappeared permanently. The fly has been currently seen after around 160 years. The study shows that these flies did not get extinct as it was thought.

These flies is called 'Corpse-eating flies' because they feed on dead bodies of animals in the "advanced stages of decay". They do not eat bodies that are recently died. The researchers have now been able to scientifically classify these fly.
