The Ocumentics Bionic Lens, invented by British Columbia optometrist Dr. Garth Webb, is promising to give everyone perfect vision three times better than 20/20. The surgically inserted specialized lenses would revolutionize the eye care industry by eventually make driving glasses, progressive lenses and contact lenses obsolete, according to Webb.
The Casimir Effect is a proven example of free energy. The Casimir Effect illustrates zero point or vacuum state energy, which predicts that two metal plates close together attract each other due to an imbalance in the quantum fluctuations. The implications of this are far reaching and have been written about extensively within theoretical physics by researchers all over the world. Today, we are beginning to see that these concepts are not just theoretical, but instead very practical and simply very suppressed.
Color blindness has a lot to do with genetics but can also occur from external incidences. Watch this video to learn all the science behind this rare disability.
A recent study from the University of Texas-Houston linked higher caffeine consumption with reduced risk for erectile dysfunction. So men, go grab some coffee.
Fusion has the potential to be the perfect energy source—safe, clean, and limitless—but scientists are struggling to make it work. Now a change of shape may turn the mainstream reactor design, known as a spherical tokamak, into something simpler, faster, and cheaper.
What is mindset science? Think of it this way: The way that you think about something can actually transform the effect that it has on you. Health psychologist Kelly McGonigal, author of the new book “The Upside of Stress,” talks about mindset science. McGonigal explains how positive thinking can put you on the road to positive outcomes while negative thoughts run the risk of becoming self-fulfilling prophecies.
The Hubble Space Telescope is known for its dazzling images of cosmic phenomena, but it didn’t exactly start that way. Its first ever image, captured 25 years ago today, is decidedly less exciting. This is HD96755, a part of star cluster NGC 3532, about 1,300 light years away. It underwhelmed people back then, too.
Also know as additive manufacturing, 3D printing promises to be a vastly more cost effective approach for the replacement of both body tissues and parts. While the synthetic materials which are often used in the final 3D printed products may cause biocompatibility problems, at the very least they can be used on a temporary basis.
Humans now have a shorter attention span than goldfish due to an obsession with portable devices, according to a survey of 2,000 people conducted by Microsoft. The survey showed that the average attention span of humans has fallen from twelve seconds in 2000 to eight seconds.
To be in a room with such power and brilliance was nothing short of humbling, and the ten key lessons I learned have forever changed my outlook on the prospects of our future.
Today, predicting the direction in which technology is heading is a lot easier than it was 65 years ago. Unfortunately, these advancements don’t always have the potential to benefit mankind, sometimes the opposite is true. Is our way of life, or indeed all of humanity, at risk from these dangers?
Simply put, the Large Hadron Collider creates the biggest magnetic field on the entire planet, second to that created by the planet itself! It may seem only speculation linking the LHC to seismic activity, but we must take into consideration how magnetism on this grand of a scale affects the layers of the Earth.
A contender in the race to build clean affordable vehicles, and instead of being powered by electricity, the $10,000 AIRPod boasts of being a “Zero Pollution Vehicle” because it runs on compressed air.
