10 Incredible Cutting-Edge Technologies In Development

10 Incredible Cutting-Edge Technologies In Development
Technology Don’t give up on flying cars or hoverboards just yet! As technology marches relentlessly on, everything goes into development sooner or later—as demonstrated by the existence of these things, which we’ll almost certainly see within our lifetimes. 10 Artificial Gills Inventors have long sought an underwater breathing apparatus that doesn’t store oxygen, but extracts it from the water the way gills do. The device, aptly named LikeAFish, works by using a centrifuge to lower the pressure of water within an airtight chamber. Such a system would obviously allow for longer “bottom time” without the need for refilling oxygen and would decrease the amount of nitrogen the diver is exposed to. 9 Agricultural Robots Agricultural robotics are, somewhat surprisingly, still in their infancy. But the technology is coming along, and it’s easy to imagine it implemented on a wide-scale basis before too long. 8 Sunscreen Pills 7 Paper-Thin, Flexible Computers and Phones 6 Tooth Regeneration Related:  Emerging TechnologiesArticle divers

Internet of Things (IoT): The Third Wave The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet. These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. In other words, when objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them. The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as the third wave in the development of the Internet. IoT has key attributes that distinguish it from the “regular” Internet, as captured by Goldman Sachs’s S-E-N-S-E framework: Sensing, Efficient, Networked, Specialized, Everywhere. Source: Goldman Sachs Global Investment Research. A number of significant technology changes have come together to enable the rise of the IoT. Advantages and Disadvantages of IoT Roberto I. The Internet of Things can only work if these gadgets and devices start interacting with each other through a networked system. References

16 Children And Their Bedrooms From Across The World. This Truly Opened My Eyes... Some children grow up in poverty, lacking food and sanitation, while others are born in countries where basic necessities are taken for granted. Photographer James Mollison came up with the project when he thought about his own childhood bedroom and how it reflected who he was. Where Children Sleep – a collection of stories about children from around the world told through portraits of their bedrooms - stemmed from his ideas. I'm shocked by how differently children start their lives in this world. All of them deserve a chance, but some will never get one due to the harsh environments they're raised in. Those of us who were fortunate in our youth should help everyone have the same opportunities we did when we grew up. Spread these incredible photos by sharing this list.

'Paper iPhone' could be next mobile revolution - Technology & science - Innovation A pocket-sized computer as thin and flexible as a sheet of paper is set to be unveiled next week. While it's just a prototype, the researchers say the bendy souped-up smartphone could revolutionize the way we interact with computers. Called PaperPhone, the new device is a flexible version of e-ink, the digital ink screen found in e-readers such as the Amazon Kindle. "This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of interactive paper,” said lead PaperPhone creator Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen's University Human Media Lab. “You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing on it with a pen." The researchers have built a prototype phone -- a 3.7-inch (9.5-cm) diagonal e-ink display -- and taken it for a test drive. The PaperPhone isn’t available for purchase quite yet, and it will be five to 10 years before you can buy one, said Audrey Girouard, a postdoctoral student at the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University.

47 Amazing Psychology-Proven Facts I’ve decided to start a series called 100 Things You Should Know about People. As in: 100 things you should know if you are going to design an effective and persuasive website, web application or software application. Or maybe just 100 things that everyone should know about humans! The order that I’ll present these 100 things is going to be pretty random. So the fact that this first one is first doesn’t mean that’s it’s the most important.. just that it came to mind first. Dr. <div class="slide-intro-bottom"><a href=" New invisibility cloak hides objects from human view Public release date: 27-Jul-2011 [ Print | E-mail Share ] [ Close Window ] Contact: Michael 202-872-6042American Chemical Society For the first time, scientists have devised an invisibility cloak material that hides objects from detection using light that is visible to humans. The new device is a leap forward in cloaking materials, according to a report in the ACS journal Nano Letters. Xiang Zhang and colleagues note that invisibility cloaks, which route electromagnetic waves around an object to make it undetectable, "are still in their infancy." Although the study cloaked a microscopic object roughly the diameter of a red blood cell, the device demonstrates that it may be "capable of cloaking any object underneath a reflective carpet layer.

La Silicon Valley s’en prend aux « méthodes de lobbying douteuses » de Mark Zuckerberg Mark Zuckerberg, fondateur et PDG de Facebook (Source : AFP / Justin Sullivan). Mark Zuckerberg est-il allé trop loin ? En créant mi-avril un groupe de pression politique bipartisan, "", censé défendre la réforme de l'immigration, le jeune patron de Facebook s'est aventuré sur un terrain pour le moins sensible. Un mois et demi après, il en paie déjà les conséquences. L'objet de la controverse, des campagnes de pub financées par, qui défendent la construction du très controversé oléoduc géant Keystone XL, entre l'Oklahoma et le Texas, plaident pour des forages pétroliers dans une réserve naturelle de l'Alaska ou encore fustigent l'Obamacare, réforme de la santé emblématique du premier mandat de Barack Obama. A priori, rien à voir avec la loi sur l'immigration. Le chef du réseau social au milliard d'utilisateurs n'est pas le premier à attirer l'attention sur cet état de fait. Quoiqu'il en soit, l'enjeu est de taille. Rien n'y fait : les attaques continuent de plus belle.

Technologies that will Change the World by 2020 | Longitudes Fourteen innovators describe the technological forces that will shape the world by decade's end. Fulvia Montresor | World Economic Forum The World Economic Forum recently asked the incoming members of its 2015 class of Technology Pioneers to share their thoughts on how technology will change the world by the end of this decade. From printable organs to the “Internet of everywhere”, here are their predictions for our near-term future. Lee The ‘humanized’ Internet The evolution of modern connectivity is often summarized as: the Internet – the World Wide Web – mobile devices – big data/the cloud – the Internet of things. However, more than simply connecting humans with devices, the next stage in connectivity will include “humanized” interfaces that constantly evolve to understand the user’s patterns and needs and, in a sense, self-optimize. – Sirgoo Lee, co-CEO of Kakao Narayan The end of the 19th-century grid But that is not the case in many parts of Latin America, Africa and Asia.
