Flying Taser Drone Delivers 80,000 Volts of Paralyzing Fear | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Um estúdio de design revelou um drone voar, o avião CUPIDO, que dispara dardos taser que oferecem 80.000 volts de eletricidade paralisando.

 . . . .

No site da empresa atualmente não há detalhes sobre quando ou se o dispositivo nunca vai ser oferecido comercialmente, mas no vídeo, podemos ver que o Cupido é um hexacopter equipado com uma mira laser usado para o alvo dos dardos taser de controle remoto

Synthetic Biology Begins To Deliver

Synthetic Biology Begins To Deliver | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Synthetic biology moves us from reading to writing DNA, allowing us to design biological systems from scratch for any number of applications. Its capabilities are becoming clearer, its first products and processes emerging. Synthetic biology’s reach already extends from reducing our dependence on oil to transforming how we develop medicines and food crops. It is being heralded as the next big thing; whether it fulfils that expectation remains to be seen. It will require collaboration and multi-disciplinary approaches to development, application and regulation. Interesting times ahead!

A Tokyo Design Firm Made Artificial Human Organs for the Post-Apocalypse

A Tokyo Design Firm Made Artificial Human Organs for the Post-Apocalypse | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Once that great apocalyptic event—contagion, climate change, nuclear holocaust, zombies, whatever—drowns out the huddled masses of humanity, we can take solace in at least one thing: those who remain will have no shortage of suggestions from art and pop culture as to how best to carry on.

If it's a zombie scenario, they could, for instance, go Walking Dead and form a scrappy band and shack up in a prison. If it's disease, they could hack their bodies, adding Matt-Damon-in-Elysium-style cyborg arm implants to do combat with the rich. If it's rising sea levels, they could follow one Tokyo design firm's advice, and outfit themselves with artificial organs designed to make the human body more water-efficient.

How Much Longer Before Our First AI Catastrophe?

How Much Longer Before Our First AI Catastrophe? | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

What will happen in the days after the birth of the first true artificial intelligence? If things continue apace, this could prove to be the most dangerous time in human history. It will be an era of weak and narrow artificial intelligence, a highly dangerous combination that could wreak tremendous havoc on human civilization. Here’s why we’ll need to be ready.
