What Would You Do With A Spray-On Antenna? Internet Everywhere, For One
This is part of Future Forward, a new, semi-regular series exploring how cutting-edge technologies might be applied. The Problem Antennas are pretty much always one of two things: bulky and effective, or small and prone to failure. Engineers have been brilliant about milking more and more from radio waves in our wireless spectrum, but despite developments like 4G and over-the-air HD broadcasting, our antennas are based upon antique technology. Dropped calls, fuzzy pictures: Some of it’s due to the nature of the frequencies themselves, but most of these issues could be fixed with better antennas. The Breakthrough A company called Chamtech has developed a nano-capacitor-infused spray, a very powerful antenna in a can.

Scientist creates lifelike cells out of metal
Scientists trying to create artificial life generally work under the assumption that life must be carbon-based, but what if a living thing could be made from another element? One British researcher may have proven that theory, potentially rewriting the book of life. Lee Cronin of the University of Glasgow has created lifelike cells from metal — a feat few believed feasible. The discovery opens the door to the possibility that there may be life forms in the universe not based on carbon, reports New Scientist. Even more remarkable, Cronin has hinted that the metal-based cells may be replicating themselves and evolving.

5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness
Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain... #5.
