3-D Printing is going to have a dramatic impact on our lives and I find the possibilities very exciting!

I feel like this is something out of a science fiction. But it is evident to expect the greatest technology advancements to be in the medical sector. This is an example of integrating medical technology with CAD (Computer Aided Design) styled software.

The Forgetting Pill Erases Painful Memories Forever

The Forgetting Pill Erases Painful Memories Forever | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

For years scientists have been able to change the emotional tone of a memory by administering certain drugs just before asking people to recall the event in detail. New research suggests that they’ll be able to target and erase specific memories altogether. Here’s how.

The High Cost of Losing Urban Trees

The High Cost of Losing Urban Trees | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it
Tennessee reaps a $638 million yearly benefit from its urban trees – and an $80 billion loss if they disappeared.

Through energy savings, air and water filtering and carbon storage, the urban trees of Tennessee account for more than $638 million in benefits, according to a report [PDF] conducted by the Forest Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and released earlier this year.

The biggest savings are attributed to carbon storage, which the authors of the report value at an estimated $350 million. Collectively, the state's urban trees store about 16.9 million tons, with each ton stored worth about $20.70 to the state every year. Air and water filtration is also one of the functional benefits of urban trees, and the report estimates the value of this work at $204 million per year. The trees are credited with removing 27,100 tons of pollutants each year, including ozone, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide. And because of the shading they provide, these urban trees are credited with saving about $66 million in energy costs annually.

Why the Places We Live Make Us Happy

Why the Places We Live Make Us Happy | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it
The strange factors that impact whether we're content where we live.

In an article titled "Understanding the Pursuit of Happiness in Ten Major Cities," the authors concluded that good urbanism contributes positively to happiness:

We find that the design and conditions of cities are associated with the happiness of residents in 10 urban areas. Cities that provide easy access to convenient public transportation and to cultural and leisure amenities promote happiness. Cities that are affordable and serve as good places to raise children also have happier residents. We suggest that such places foster the types of social connections that can improve happiness and ultimately enhance the attractiveness of living in the city.
