If Google Glass is indiscreet, then these electronic contact lenses that outfit a user's cornea with a display may be worse. Researchers at several institutions, including two research arms of Samsung have built contacts of this kind. It's so sci-fi!
It seems cancer have been plaguing us since the dawn of men. While Neanderthals didn't have cigarrettes with them, and there was pretty much no pollution in the air, they still managed to get cancer. As evident by this 120,000 year old bone fragment revealing a cancerous tumor.
Will Google be able to predict if this Vince Vaughn - Owen Wilson film 'The Internship' will be a blockbuster? Check out the trailer about the movie that gives you a look behind Google's organization. Clearly they hid the fact that Rose Byrne (so hot) worked there. I'd totally sign up:
Fungus is not a good thing to have on your walls or personal belongings. That we know for sure. But a company called Ecovative is using that idea to create packaging and building materials.
Founded by Eben Bayer and Gavin McIntyre, they started experimenting with fungus as part of a school project. The company farms mycelium - a root like threads that form the basis for fungus. It's like a glue, and it latches onto whatever it finds around it, from low value organic matter like plant stalks or cotton hulls. It will create a super dense network of threads.
Propane tanks are heavy, and it's not something you can drag onto your scale to weigh every time you need to find out how much propane is left in it.
Truma's LevelChecker uses ultrasonic signals to determine how full or empty your tank is. You just hold the LevelChecker's tip to the side of the tank, press a button, and it'll emit and monitor an ultrasonic blast that will tell you if your tank is full or empty in the current location. After a few tests you'll know how much propane is left.
For those who just can't seem to find a standard mouse that fits comfortably in their hand, Pyott Design has come up with a 3D printed workaround that turns a $10 Logitech M100 into an infinitely adjustable alternative.
Some of you have Play-Doh to thank for your artistic growth or your early foray into sculpting. Decades on, Play-Doh is still fun, even when incorporated to grown up toys like 3D printers.
Hyrel 3D makes 3D printers in the $2,000 to $3,000 range, and they've come up with a special extruder that forgoes the specialized plastic for simpler materials like plasticine, air-drying modeling clay, and Play-Doh.
The report that nine leading tech companies are knowingly giving information on users to the U.S. Government is called PRISM and it reportedly involves Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple.
We all know fish aren't intelligent animals. Researchers developed a robot fish based on the Zebrafish and painted it to look like a member of their own species to make it a swimming buddy. The experiment was to show how it is to deal with a mind whose chemistry had been affected by a bit of booze.
There are many ways to drink wine, but of course the classier way is to use a wine glass to do so. But if you're ever finding yourself in need of something a little bit more original, here's an example of "bio-tableware" by sculptor Etienne Meneau, who's branch structures are really a work of art.
The internet is a gateway to pretty much everything these days. If you're reading this right now you probably rely on the internet for a lot of things.
Search engines have helped in our short-term education, which is basically when we need to find out or confirm facts on the spot. But now, we also have online universities which mean you can graduate without actually having to go to a university building. It's so far been a target of means jokes instead of legitimate means to tertiary education. All that is about to change.
