North Sense Is Step One On Your Path To Becoming A Real-Life Cyborg. Stretchy 'second skin' could make wrinkles a thing of the past. For those concerned about wrinkly old skin, it might be an ingenious solution: a stretchy “second skin” that can be smoothed on to make aged tissue look more youthful.

Stretchy 'second skin' could make wrinkles a thing of the past

The wearable film developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology has shown promise in a series of small trials where it was applied to wrinkles, under-eye bags and patches of dry skin. When applied to the face or body, the thin, transparent layer adheres to the skin and supports the tissue, making it look and behave like younger skin, its creators claim. “What we’ve been able to do is create a cream that you can put on the skin and then when it’s on the skin it can actually form essentially an elastic second skin,” said Bob Langer, who led the research. Tests in the lab found that the polymer film, which is only 70 thousandths of a millimetre thick, reduced the appearance of wrinkles and under-eye bagging, and helped retain moisture in patches of dry skin.

The immortalist: Uploading the mind to a computer. While many tech moguls dream of changing the way we live with new smart devices or social media apps, one Russian internet millionaire is trying to change nothing less than our destiny, by making it possible to upload a human brain to a computer, reports Tristan Quinn.

Technology for Psychic Skills. Shiva is a an example of circumcerebral complex magnetic neural stimulation.

Technology for Psychic Skills

In laboratory experiments, circumcerebral stimulation (with the Octopus Device) was able to elicit psychic perceptions from ordinary people and enhance the psychic perceptions of a skilled remote viewer. In unpublished work, circumcerebral stimulation of this kind (including the Octopus device) has been observed to enhance existing spiritual and psychic skills. It’s eight pairs of magnetic coils circle magnetic signals around your head to dampen a specific neural function called “The Binding Factor for consciousness”. The binding factor is understood to inhibit skills and senses that are ordinarily unavailable. Shiva Neural Stimulation replicates the apparatus used in these studies, allowing you to work with this technology in your home.

Shiva specifically targets the right side of the brain; the side most implicated in psychic perception. What It Takes to Be a Cyborg. Scientists discover how to 'upload knowledge to your brain'  Harvard Goes To The Himalayas – Monks With ‘Superhuman’ Abilities Show Scientists What We Can All Do. It’s fascinating to consider just how many ancient teachings tell us that humans have the capacity to gain extraordinary powers through various techniques.

Some of these techniques, known as siddhis in the yoga tradition (from the Sanskrit, meaning “perfection”), include meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more. In Buddhism, for example, the existence of advanced powers is readily acknowledged; in fact, Buddha expected his disciples to be able to attain these abilities, but also to not become distracted by them. A Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan, Donald Lopez Jr., describes the many abilities ascribed to Buddha: First Brain To Brain Communication Between Two Human Minds. According to Vice magazine, an international team of researchers has assembled the first human brain-to-brain interface.

First Brain To Brain Communication Between Two Human Minds

With the help of EEG technology, they have successfully converted the Spanish words “hola” and “ciao” from a person’s brain waves into binary. The data was transmitted from a person in India to another person in France, where the process was reversed. The researchers claim that they’ve created the first human brain-to-brain communication system, something we have only seen working between rats before. As their recently published study explains, the Duke University researchers closed the brain-computer control loop by putting another brain on the other end of the system, to receive the signals processed by the computer interface.

But scientists at Editas Medicine in the US believe they can fix the mutated DNA using the ground-breaking gene-editing technology Crispr. Katrine Bosley, the chief executive of Editas Medicine, told a conference in the US that the company hopes to start trialling the technology on blind patients in 2017.

Hacking sleep: Meet the transhumanists making sleep obsolete

A growing transhumanism community wants to sleep less, and better, and they’re going to great lengths to make it happen. For those unaware, transhumanism is an intellectual and cultural movement that aims to improve the human condition, to push beyond our biological limitations, largely through technological advancements. Sigourney Weaver’s exo-suit from “Aliens” may soon be real. Peak performance experts say things like, “You should focus.

Leaving the Body Behind: A History. ​Over the past week, Motherboard has tackled the question of whether or not the human body is becoming obsolete from a variety of angles, from immortality to killer robots. Google Granted Patent for Smart Contact Lens. May allow people with diabetes to easily measure glucose levels Google has been granted a patent for a contact lens with an embedded chip, The patent, which was discovered by WebProNews, features a sensor in the lens. Google has previously said that it is partnering with the pharmaceutical company Novartis to create a smart contact lens that could monitor blood sugar for people with diabetes. As TIME has previously reported, Google has been testing various prototypes of smart contact lens and is currently in talks with the U.S.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about a lens that measures glucose levels in users’ tears. Diabetics must currently prick their fingers throughout the day to measure blood sugar levels, but Google believes the contact lenses would be less invasive and allow people with diabetes to check glucose more often and more easily. Soldiers could have their bones copied and 3D printed in case of injury. Soldiers could be scanned before they enter the battlefield and a virtual 'twin' kept online so that new bones could be 3D printed when they get injured, scientists have suggested.

Experts at the University of Nevada are in discussion with the US military to create records of ‘virtual’ soldiers which could be referred to by army surgeons. The team already uses virtual operating tables to practice dissection and help medical students learn the anatomy of the human body.
