Frugal science for diagnosing disease. Known as the “Paperfuge” invented by Manu Prakash, Professor of Bio-Engineering at Stanford, is like the piece of lab equipment it’s named for, the centrifuge, it can spin biological samples at thousands of revolutions per minute, by hand. The simple solutions are often the most accessible, and therefore[…]
Printing body parts such as jaw bones, muscle, cartilage structures and stunningly accurate human ears – now a reality. Scientists have developed an innovative 3D bioprinter capable of generating replacement tissue that’s strong enough to withstand transplantation. To show its power, the scientists printed a jaw bone, muscle, and cartilage structures,[…]
Super-materials with super properties and potential! Researchers at Rice University have developed a way to make carbon nanotubes self-assemble in a dish using a powerful Tesla coil transformer circuit. The discovery during their experiments has been dubbed ”Teslaphoresis” is simply a powerful force field that makes particles quickly come together. […]
The Venus Project is an alternative vision of what the future can be. The Venus Project is so much more than futuristic cities, cars and gizmos. Humanity has the capacity to apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. The Venus project, originated in the minds[…]
The Eco Cooler Re-purposes used soft drink and water bottles, discarded as rubbish, to create an effective way to cool down spaces by up to 5˚C without electricity. This real world low tech solution is making a big difference on many levels. An idea born out of Rural Bangladesh where over 70%[…]
The opportunities fungi opens our world up to are nothing short of astounding.
Fungi replacing plastic…and fungi eating plastic – It’s about time this whole environmentally harmful product that plastic is get a shakedown! Enter the fungi revolution!
Morphing cars that adapt to the driver and driving conditions.
Evolutions in automotive design have started to incorporate more efficient technologies into the mainstream such as electric powered motors. The Tesla cars area real world example of this with phenomenal results, a rapid uptake and increasing demand.
Alex Kipman, the HoloLens & Kinetic inventor, looks into the evolution from our screen to the immerse world of 3D holograms.
Solar Roadways (referred to as SR Panels) steps away from the tradition road surface and power creation mindset, with the core purpose to generate clean renewable energy on roadways and any other surface that can be walked or driven upon.
This window into future developments in artificial intelligence, genomics, neurobiology, synthetic biology, transportation and space exploration.
