A team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have come up with a new technology that can ensure fine synchronisation between lip movement and video for voice dubbing applications in movies. Called ‘Voice Warping,’ (in short, VoW) the technology can do many other things as well: from helping you learn a new language or Carnatic music lessons, to making radio/television advertisements cheaper. It is developed by Prof. Chandra Sekhar Seelamantula who heads the Spectrum Lab at the Department of Electrical Engineering, IISc, Bangalore.

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science have recently shown that combining two of the building blocks in nanotechnology, quantum dots and nanorods, leads to enhanced light emission properties. This may find applications in novel display screens, photodetectors and solar energy applications.
A nanoparticle that can stimulate growth of bone forming cells and deliver the drug used for osteoporosis straight to the affected area, has been developed.
Researchers from the Centre for Ecological Sciences at the Indian Institute of Science studied four estuaries along the western coast of Karnataka - the Honnavar division of Uttara Kannada district – and showed that the area has about 3 sq. km. of mangrove forests.
New organic materials, which can potentially be used in organic solar cells, have been developed by researchers at IISc. These materials have properties that can lead to cheaper solar powered devices.
The human body encounters several harmful agents like bacteria every day, which can trigger inflammation in the body. A protein called the C-reactive protein (CRP) is produced in higher than usual amounts during infections. A team from IISc have designed an efficient, sensitive sensor to measure the levels of CRP, even in the presence of interfering agents.
High frequency radio communication networks at some parts of the globe were disrupted last week. Scientists believe that it was due to some explosions that happened on the Sun on October 26, 2014.
Control over charge/ion transport in nanosized channels is essential in realising devices based on electromechanical energy conversion, in drug delivery and in controlled catalysis. Publishing in the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers from IISc and Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) have described how the magnitude and polarity of surface charge can be dynamically controlled.
Researchers from the Indian Institute of Science have developed a device that could lead to better batteries. The devices, called the ‘supercapacitor’, can store a lot of charge, be charged/discharged quickly and withstand many charge/discharge cycles. More work is needed to make it ready for the market, but the basic design is ready.
