Michio Kaku: “By 2045 Digital Immortality May Be REALITY!”

Michio Kaku talks about his new book titled “The Future of the Mind,” in which Kaku explores what might be in store for our minds: practical telepathy and telekinesis; artificial memories implanted into our brains; and a pill that will make us smarter. He describes work being done right now on using sensors to read images in the human brain and on downloading artificial memories into the brain to treat victims of strokes and Alzheimer’s.

Artist Creates Nanosculptures Smaller Than a Human Hair

A sculpture so tiny that it cannot be seen by the naked eye is claimed the smallest sculpture of the human form ever created. A new series of equally diminutive sculptures are at a scale so infinitesimally miniscule that each of the figures is approximately equal in size to the amount your fingernails grow in around about 6 hours, and can only be viewed using a scanning electron microscope.
