10 Ways the Next Ten Years are Going to be Mind-Blowing
We are living in an extremely exciting time in terms of science and technology. Things that have always been considered science fiction are becoming normal day-to-day components of our lives. And while we have been seeing invention after breakthrough over and over in the last couple of decades, this next ten years is going to blow everything else out of the water. The awesome thing about all these scientific discoveries it that they create technology that allows us to make more breakthroughs even faster. Our ability to innovate is increasing exponentially as the years go by. To give you an idea of the magnitude of this reality, here are 10 amazing innovations to different sectors of life. 1) Bio Technology Bionic Hand controlled by brain signals Okay, it doesn’t let you crush rocks like you would think, BUT it does allow people without fingers to have fully functional hands that can pick up and handle delicate objects. 2) Architecture Revolving Tower in Dubai Speed Size and Usability Trending

10 TRENDS FOR 2015 Jeff Bezos recently told shareholders that Amazon would have 10,000 Kiva robots by the end of 2014 (from just 1,400 in 2013), and that this could cut fulfillment costs for an average order by 20-40% (BCG, August 2014). And while lower costs will be central to the robot narrative told in boardrooms during 2015, smart business will be planning not just how robots might decrease their costs, but how they can also increase customer satisfaction, too. Draw inspiration from the examples below around how to use robots to initiate better customer service: more reliable, faster, richer, more personal, more convenient … the list goes on. Remember, this isn't about Man vs. Machine. ROBOLOVE will free your (human) employees from the most repetitive parts of their roles, and free them to focus on the more engaging, valuable tasks (that will further increase their satisfaction, and so ultimately that of your customers too).

Africa’s Tech Edge How the continent's many obstacles, from widespread poverty to failed states, allowed African entrepreneurs to beat the West at reinventing money for the mobile age Mike McQuade It’s a painfully First World problem: Splitting dinner with friends, we do the dance of the seven credit cards. No one, it seems, carries cash anymore, so we blunder through the inconvenience that comes with our dependence on plastic. Just as often, I encounter a street vendor or taxi driver who can’t handle my proffered card and am left shaking out my pockets and purse.

www.sciencealert Love the great outdoors, but not quite ready to go Into The Wild-style and give up hot water and electricity just yet? Slovakian architects have just revealed a super-compact capsule that promises to deliver a nomadic lifestyle, with all the renewable-powered comforts of home. And we really want one. The whole thing is pretty cramped, measuring just 2.55 m x 4.45 m x 2.25 m, but it's designed to be entirely self-sufficient for two adults, and is kitted out with a retractable 750 W wind turbine and 2.6 square-metres of solar panels.

Inside A Cloud Computing Data Center « Data Center Knowledge The interior of a 40-foot container inside the new Microsoft Chicago data center, packed with servers on either side of a center aisle (click to see a larger version of this image). Most cloud computing data centers aren’t open for tours. Not to worry. Data Center Knowledge has put together virtual tours using photos and videos to bring you inside some of the world’s largest cloud computing data centers. Here are some links: Turn into a Tree You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, the product designer Gerard Moline has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition. His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree.

9 media-tech trends to watch in 2015 Every December, tech pundits set aside a few hours to predict how the industry might evolve in the coming year. And every year, these predictions hit the wires before we see what happens at the Consumer Electronics Show — the largest consumer electronics convention in the world. For our media-tech predictions, we decided to wait and see what CES had in store for us. Now that the event is wrapping up, here’s what we think will happen in the media-tech world for the duration of 2015. 1) Tech firms buying TV networks Five "Free Energy" Devices that Could Save You Thousands of Dollars Image credit: www.flickr.com/photos/cr03/42435041 “Free energy” devices are the most important inventions for helping us solve many of our financial problems.
