This story is the fourth entry in a Future Earth blog series series called “Mobilising for sustainability.” We're highlighting people, programmes and technologies from around the world that seek to build new ways of bringing non-traditional groups, including young people, hackers and more, into sustainability research – and in generating new solutions for the challenges of today. We encourage you to share your own examples of efforts to create momentum toward global sustainability in the comments section below and on Facebook and Twitter.
The VR arms race is in full flight, and hands seem to be the next frontline in the battle. Now, a team at Purdue University is capturing hand movements with depth-sensing cameras, and using deep-learning to understand millions of hand positions and display them accurately in the virtual world.

While an available Arduino library allows a quick start, there is still one problem to overcome: How to access your ESP8266 from outside your home network without nerve-racking router and firewall…
A research effort led by Dmitri Talapin, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago, has demonstrated how semiconductors could be soldered – and even 3D printed -- and still deliver the proper electronic performance.
Two electronic systems that BMW Motorrad is developing for its motorcycles offer a glimpse of the near future. Presented in prototype form at CES 2016, a head-up display with ample connectivity features and a laser-powered lighting system are destined to make motorcycles safer and more functional.
As might be expected, there are a lot of drones on display this week at CES. Almost all of them have one thing in common, however: people can't ride in them. We say "almost all," as there is one exception. Ehang's 184 AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicle) is designed to carry a single human passenger.
Shape memory materials have shown promise in a number of applications. Now one team of scientists is examining potential biomedical applications, with polymer that can revert to its original form when triggered by heat from a human body.
