Nobody really wants to get old and watch our bodies age with time. And now, scientists are saying the key to prolonged youth could lie right inside your brain.
Scientists have, for the first time, found a region of the brain that can slow down or speed up the aging process in mice. Their lives and youthful vigor were extended by about 20 percent by a combination of blocking a protein complex and injecting the brain with a hormone that is blocked by that protein.
Rumors surrounding the ability to control Google Glass with the wink of an eye has now become a reality thanks to developer Mike DiGiovanni, who created an app called Winky.
Winky lets you power up Glass from standby and take a picture with just a single wink. There even is a video of the process in action. Of course, a long and deliberate wink is required so that Glass doesn't misinterpret blinking as a command.

Researchers at Princeton have successfully created a prototype of it that rolls 3D printed cells in with an antenna. Talk about one heck of a hearing aid.
Epilepsy affects 60 million people worldwide. Conventional treatments show no effect for some 40 percent of those affected, and while the seizures are usually brief, the constant gnaw of not knowing when the next one will come impacts a patient's quality of life.

This way, you can be found no matter where you are on Earth.

Facebook Messenger's communication protocols - Message Queuing Telemetry Transport - has been chosen by a high profile band of companies as the future of Internet of Things.
MQTT was designed for sending telemetry data to and from satellites and focuses on low bandwidth and low power, which was an ideal match for Facebook. Now the lightweight nature of the protocol will come in handy with dozens of devices with low power chipsets.
