Futurism & Inspiring Inventions
Invisibility has long been one of the marvels in science fiction and fantasy – and more recently in physics.
For the first time since the big announcement in July, Hope and James hold this Frank conversation to talk about Life After Overunity on the QEG. What happens after you successfully complete a working free energy device and announce it to the world? The answer might not be what you think!
Was ‘magnetic confinement fusion’ technology around in the ancient days and did it come from our progenitors who colonized our planet? Can we presume then that ‘magnetic confinement fusion’ technology is another so-called back-engineered gift from the extraterrestrials that our governments are allegedly in business with through the infamous ‘Deal’?
We might think that our ethanol and biodiesel “flex-fuel” systems are all very cutting edge, but biofuel development is of course nothing new. In the 1930’s, Henry Ford made a hemp-fueled/hemp-bodied prototype car. The body panels were composed of 70% cellulose fibers, including industrial hemp, mixed with a resin binder, and apparently they were pretty sturdy.
In this video, Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters Diving Deep shares 10 amazing scientific ideas that he thinks will change the world.
For a whole lot of people, especially those in developing countries, science — and with it, medicine — isn’t readily available to the majority of citizens. But Manu Prakash wants to change that. Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford, is the proprietor of “frugal science,” a term he coined to explain the movement toward building cheap versions of high tech tools. His endeavour aims to make medical devices both affordable and available to the masses…So in 2014 he created a paper microscope, aptly named the Foldscope, that costs only 50 cents to produce.
Aisa Mijeno, an engineering professor who worked for years with Greenpeace Philippines, noticed during her work there that many indigenous people in the over-7,000 islands that make up the country were using kerosene lamps exclusively for lighting. The family she lived with there would have to climb down the mountain that they lived on and then walk an additional 30 km to the nearest town in order to get more oil to fuel their lamps. Mileno wanted to come up with a lighting solution that was both better for the environment and made the lives of the people better and easier.
Lihong Wang creates the sort of medical technology you’d expect to find on the starship Enterprise. Wang, a professor of biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, has already helped develop instruments that can detect individual cancer cells in the bloodstream and oxygen consumption deep within the body. He has also created a camera that shoots at 100 billion frames a second, fast enough to freeze an object traveling at the speed of light.
The Lexus Hoverboard is set for release on August 5… The Lexus Hoverboard represents true engineering innovation. It is close to life imitating the art of the 1989 classic movie ‘Back to the Future II’, which features Marty McFly (played by Michael J Fox) riding a hoverboard (see below).
Video Source: AsapSCIENCE With the recent release of the movie, Self/Less, where Ben Kingsley’s wealthy and powerful character transfers his consciousness into the body of a much younger Ryan Reynolds for more longevity, there is a natural curiosity about whether this sort of thing is even remotely plausible. The curious guys at Science Asap explore that […]
A Dutch man barely out of his teens is leading one of the most ambitious ocean cleanup efforts ever: to halve the amount of plastic debris floating in the Pacific within a decade. The man’s name is Boyan Slat, and he’s come up with a pretty ingenious way of doing it. Instead of clamoring around the globe on a never-ending junk hunt, he wants the ocean to “clean itself.”
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.
