Lilypad floating city concept - Image 1 of 10 The Lilypad floating city concept is designed to house climate change refugees Image Gallery (10 images) With global sea levels predicted to rise significantly over the next century due to climate change, a lot of people living in low lying areas are expected to be displaced from their homes. View all With a shape inspired by the highly ribbed leaf of Victoria water lilies, the double skin of the floating “ecopolis” would be made of polyester fibers covered by a layer of titanium dioxide (TiO2), which would react with ultraviolet rays and absorb atmospheric pollution via a photocatalytic effect in the same way as the air-purifying concrete and paving stones we looked at last year. Three marinas and three mountains would surround a centrally located artificial lagoon that is totally immersed below the water line to act as ballast for the city. Callebaut’s hope that the Lilypad becomes a reality by 2100 might also make it too late to benefit those worst affected by any rise in sea levels.

Skynet rising: Google acquires 512-qubit quantum computer; NSA surveillance to be turned over to AI machines (NaturalNews) Most people don't know about the existence of quantum computers. Almost no one understands how they work, but theories include bizarre-sounding explanations like, "they reach into alternate universes to derive the correct answers to highly complex computational problems." Quantum computers are not made of simple transistors and logic gates like the CPU on your PC. They don't even function in ways that seem rational to a typical computing engineer. For example, a mathematical problem that might have 2 to the power of n possible solutions -- where n is a large number like 1024 -- might take a traditional computer longer than the age of the universe to solve. If you know anything about encryption, you probably also realize that quantum computers are the secret KEY to unlocking all encrypted files. Until now, most people believed this day was far away. Don't tell that to Eric Ladizinsky, co-founder and chief scientist of a company called D-Wave. Skynet. The Terminator: Yes.

Green Float concept: a carbon negative city on the ocean The idea of going offshore to satisfy our renewable energy needs isn't new, but the grand vision of Japan’s Shimizu Corporation goes way beyond harnessing green energy at sea for use in cities on Terra firma – it takes the whole city along for the ride. The company, along with the Super Collaborative Graduate School and Nomura Securities, is researching the technical issues involved in constructing its Green Float concept – a self-sufficient, carbon-negative floating city that would reside in the Equatorial Pacific Ocean. View all The concept would comprise individual floating cells or districts resembling water lilies with a radius of 1km (0.62 miles) that would form a compact village that could house 10,000 to 50,000 people. Joining these districts together would form a city or module that would be home to 100,000 people, while a group of modules would form a country (though we assume there is some red tape involved before you get a seat at the U.N.).

Transhumanistes sans gêne L’homme percera-t-il un jour le secret de son cerveau ? Dans vingt ans, cinquante ans, un siècle ? Les spéculations les plus aléatoires circulent. Cette quête apparaît comme la prochaine frontière de l’homme, celle qui lui permettra de se dépasser, prétend le mouvement transhumaniste. Les efforts de la recherche tendraient à les conforter. C’est l’incroyable défi du Human Brain Project, initié par le neurobiologiste Henry Markram, associant treize centres de recherche en Europe et réclamant un milliard d’euros sur dix ans. «Matrix» et «Avatar» Une vieille lune qu’on pensait cantonnée à la littérature de science-fiction. Le transhumanisme, frange extrême de la cyberculture californienne, professe que l’humanité se trouverait au seuil de la plus grande transformation de son histoire. Ce courant de pensée radical se développe dans la Silicon Valley, en pleine révolution numérique. Défiance de la chair Devenir un homme d’acier préconisait déjà le futuriste Marinetti dans les années 20.

45 Incredible Futuristic Scifi 3D City Illustrations | Inferno Development Futuristic cities have always fascinated me, as a fan of SciFi TV shows, movies, and digital art, futuristic city designs always bring me inspiration. Everyone can find quite a lot of stunning illustrations on sites like deviantArt. Many artists have become so skilled at Photoshop and 3D software that they create almost photographic illustrations of whole cities with incredible detail and precision. I have been inspired by these illustrations and it makes me work harder at everything I do; I hope you will feel the same. Metropolis 2106 by thmc This one is really realistic, I expect someone to build this within a few decades. Cloud City by aksu I've always wanted to live in a city like that. Atmosphere Emitters by sittingducky This one has an eerie feel to it, makes me think of a futuristic civilization that Steven Hawkins described in his documentary show. Star Wars 1 by JJasso This one was created for the Star Wars The Old Republic cinematic. Phoenix Rising by tigaer 3001 by sanfranguy

VIDEO. Le bras artificiel contrôlé par la pensée... deux ans après En janvier 2013, un Suédois amputé du bras droit a été la première personne a bénéficier d'une prothèse d'un genre bien particulier : celle-ci se greffe directement sur l'os et est connectée à ses nerfs et muscles, de façon à être contrôlée par la pensée. Une technique appelée "ostéo-intégration". Près de deux ans plus tard, cette prouesse technique fait l'objet d'une publication de suivi parue le 8 octobre dans la revue Science Translational Medicine, qui met à disposition deux vidéos surprenantes montrant le potentiel du dispositif. Cette première réalisée par l'équipe chirurgicale de Rickard Brånemark, de l'hôpital universitaire Sahlgrenska à Göteborg (Suède) semble bien être un succès. Un pas immense vers "l'homme bionique" Comme on peut le voir dans la vidéo ci-dessus, le membre artificiel peut être "contrôlé" comme s'il s'agissait d'un vrai. "Au contraire des prothèses courantes, les électrodes ne sont pas posées sur la peau mais sur le nerf.

40 Awesome Futuristic City Illustrations Cities have always been a place where people share ideas and knowledge. I think this one of the reasons why cities have been inspiring artists to create many futuristic cityscapes illustrations. I collected here some of these awesome sci-fi city illustrations.

Twenty top predictions for life 100 years from now 16 January 2012Last updated at 08:50 Last week we asked readers for their predictions of life in 100 years time. Inspired by ten 100-year predictions made by American civil engineer John Elfreth Watkins in 1900, many of you wrote in with your vision of the world in 2112. Many of the "strange, almost impossible" predictions made by Watkins came true. Here is what futurologists Ian Pearson (IP) and Patrick Tucker (PT) think of your ideas. 1. IP: Likelihood 10/10. PT: Good chance. 2. IP: Likelihood 10/10. PT: Good chance. 3. IP: Likelihood 9/10. PT: Good chance. 4. IP: Likelihood 8/10. PT: Good chance. Continue reading the main story More readers' predictions English will be spelled phonetically (jim300) Growing your own vegetables will not be allowed (holierthanthou) The justice system will be based purely on rehabilitation (Paul) Instead of receiving information from the media, people will download information directly into their brains (krozier93) Crops will be grown in sand (jim300) 5.
