A visual exhibit introducing Five Regions of the Future by authors, Joel Barker and Scott Erickson; includes a three-part audio-podcast with authors. A primer to their discoveries five very distinct kinds of sophisticated technologies.
A Japanese company has invented a new type of bearing that's up to 90 percent more efficient. Coo Space's greaseless Autonomous Decentralised Bearings eliminate a key component - the cage used to keep the balls separated from one another in the races. SE
A new bladeless wind-driven generator prototype, called the Vortex, is claimed to produce electricity with very few moving parts, on a very small footprint, and in almost complete silence. It's also designed to be very much less aurally and visually intrusive than traditional wind-driven turbines. SE
Researchers claim to have constructed the world's first electronic memory cell that effectively mimics the analog process of human memory and may one day lead to the creation of the first bionic brain. SE
Dubbed the Powerwall, Tesla has unveiled a home stationary battery that offers 10 kWh of storage capacity for the relatively modest price of US$3,500. A smaller unit is also available at 7 kWh for $3,000, and homeowners can stack multiple units if needed. SE
Studies published in the last two years have reported direct transmission of brain activity between two animals, between two humans and even between a human and a rat. These “brain-to-brain interfaces” (BBIs) allow for direct transmission of brain activity in real time by coupling the brains of two individuals. SE
Researchers in Japan have found that human aging may be able to be delayed or even reversed, at least at the most basic level of human cell lines. In the process, the scientists from the University of Tsukuba also found that regulation of two genes is related to how we age. SE
LCD panels have enabled widescreen TVs thin and light enough to be hung on a wall like a picture. But LG Display has gone one step further, displaying an OLED panel that can be stuck to a wall like wallpaper – assuming you hang your wallpaper with magnets. SE
A new class of magnets discovered by scientists working at the University of Maryland (UMD) change in volume whilst in the process of magnetization. As this is fundamentally different to the phenomenon discovered by Joule some 175 years ago, the new magnets are called "non-Joulian." SE
Research into the underlying causes of a genetic disorder that causes premature aging and death has revealed a key driver of aging in all people. Better yet, this mechanism is reversible – and with it, perhaps, scientists may be able to slow or reverse the aging process. SE
Audi is making a new fuel for internal combustion engines that has the potential to make a big dent when it comes to climate change – that's because the synthetic diesel is made from just water and carbon dioxide. SE
Joel Barker's insight:
If this is scaleable the impact will be enormous. SE
Elon Musk's goal of the first power landing of a reusable booster had a close brush with success today as a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket narrowly failed to survive a touchdown on the deck of a drone barge. SE
