The future of shopping may be no shopping at all

future of shopping

Harvard Law professor Cass Sustein found in his survey on “predictive shopping,” 41% of people would “enroll in a program in which the seller sent you books that it knew you would purchase, and billed your credit card.” That number went down to 29% if the company didn’t ask for your consent first.

Brett Kuxhausen

We have seen a lot of amazing applications for 3D printing, but there is one particular application that has overshadowed some of the more positive uses, and that is the 3D printing of firearms.  3D printed guns aren’t necessarily a bad thing, in the wrong hands they certainly can be. Unfortunately the media has picked up a couple rather innocent stories pertaining to such fabrication, and used them to portray the future of the technology as being part sinister.

Will new technologies allow us to upgrade our brains in the not-so-distant future?

brain

It wouldn’t be surprising if  the 21st century became known for its expanded understanding of the human brain. From magnetic scans that pinpoint different brain regions to the discovery and treatment of neurological disorders, scientists have demonstrated that the brain is a highly plastic organ capable of learning new things well into the later stages of life.

Cosmonauts find sea plankton on outside of International Space Station

cosmonaut

Cosmonauts found traces of sea plankton and microscopic particles on outside of ISS.

ITAR-TASS, a Russian press agency, is reporting something so surprising that it’s hard to believe: Cosmonauts have found microorganisms on the exterior of the International Space Station. Russian scientists are shocked by this discovery and can’t really explain how it is possible.

The next big challenge for energy storage

solar energy

Solar is now the fastest growing segment in the energy business in the U.S.

The energy storage era is upon us. States like California and New York have adapted energy policies that will make it possible to economically deploy storage systems, while technology advancements have boosted performance and trimmed costs. For the first time in history it will become feasible to store electric energy.

Students should own their educational data: L. Todd Rose

students

Technology can help by giving educators detailed data on students and the ability to customize teaching materials.

It may sound logical to Design a textbook or lecture with the average student in mind. But the educational neuroscience professor at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, L. Todd Rose, argues that doing so means that the lesson is designed for nobody.

Researchers develop laser device that may end pin pricks for diabetics

laser device

New laser device allows researchers to read blood sugar levels without a blood sample.

Researchers at Princeton University have developed a way to use a laser to measure people’s blood sugar, and, with more work to shrink the laser system to a portable size, the technique could allow diabetics to check their condition without pricking their fingers to draw blood.
