3D printing technology will revolutionize architecture in the near-future and allow designers to literally click-and-print complex buildings at a lower cost and faster speed than traditional construction methods allow. Another step forward in the field comes via Dubai, where what’s hailed as the world’s first 3D-printed office was recently completed.
US and South Korean scientists discovered catalyst materials that could make it possible to create lithium-air (Li-Air) batteries that can potentially store five times more power than lithium-ion (Li-On) batteries do today. Lithium-air batteries work by taking oxygen from the air and then using it in chemical reactions that will produce electricity, rather than storing an […]
Most of us have found ourselves in the awkward situation of trying to communicate in a foreign language. Sometimes it’s funny, embarrassing or downright disastrous. Thanks to a new translation device that easily fits into your ear, the days of struggling to speak the local lingo might soon be a thing of the past.
The Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, will have a special guest taking selfies and playing “Simon Says” with visitors, courtesy of the Hoboken-based Stevens Institute of Technology. The LSC recently approached the school about 3D printing an interactive and educational robot for a new exhibition. Together, they settled on 3D printing the open sourced InMoov robot […]
All futurists agree that consumer electronics of the future will be flexible, wearable and packed with sensors and antennas to perform a wide range of biomedical functions. This sound great, but unfortunately today’s production techniques are suitable for little more than flat, bulky and rigid devices.
I’ve been interested in bitcoin (BTC) as a concept since its inception. However, I considered bitcoin more of a cryptographic experiment than something that could affect my daily life.
By Peter Diamandis: Want a Hyperloop in your city? See how it will change everything you know about transportation.
There will soon be a personal craft that can take off and land vertically. It will be electric and seat two people, and is the starting point for what is hoped will be a generation of environmentally friendly and quiet planes. CEO Daniel Wiegand is wanting the plane to be suitable for daily use as an airport […]
Permission has been granted to a biotech company allowing them to attempt to reactive the brains of brain dead patients using stem cells
An institutional Review Board has given ethical permission to stimulate the brains of 20 brain dead patients to see if people can be partly revived. The highly controversial study, ReAnimaproject, which will start next year in India, will stimulate the nervous system in order to restore the brain.
