The THRIVE Movement has received over 500 breakthrough projects in the past three years, both technological and social innovations. This excerpt from the ThriveTogether event describes the potential for Open Source and 3D printing in getting new energy technologies out to the world.
Scientists have created a smart prosthetic skin that’s stretchy and warm like real skin, and is jammed with tiny sensors that can pick up a variety of environmental cues such as heat, pressure and moisture.
Dr. Michio Kaku discusses economics, technology, and our abundant future in this full video presentation of a lecture he gave.
Abby Martin discusses some of the top revolutionary public transportation ideas that could be implemented in the US.
The Antikythera Mechanism has had scholars scratching their heads over how the Greeks managed to build a mechanical computer a hundred years before the birth of Christ and thousands of years before anything similar.
Stephen Hawking: “Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded” Prof Hawking says the primitive forms of artificial intelligence developed so far have already proved very useful, but he fears the consequences of creating something that can match or surpass humans.
The process of making sea water potable, water desalinization has been a significant point of research for years in order to purify water. While there have been new technologies that aim at making sea water drinkable, many of our oceans, lakes, and rivers have become highly contaminated due to pesticide and industrial fertilizer ground water penetration, and run-off, as well as contaminated from petro chemicals and other corporate industry polluters. Luckily, researchers at Massachusetts Technology Institute (MIT) just might have a solution to this problem.
It’s not easy to keep growing cities green when there is such a high demand for building space. But nobody wants to live in a concrete jungle, which is why a company in the US has proposed a rather unusual solution: underground parks
This incredible music video by Nigel Stanford is an excellent demonstration of how cymatic frequencies affect physical matter – in the broadest sense. Note the waves manifested in flowing water, in surging flames, the slow motion roll of a metal crash cymbal, hit by the wood of a drumstick, and finally the affect of sound on what looks like some sort of organic dust. All the elements are represented here – even the etheric within the science of Nikola Tesla. After you watch this, you may find it worthwhile to ponder what your favorite music, the wind, the rain, the hum of automobiles, planes and trains are doing to the water and other fluids in your body. In other words, what kind of wave-created “art” is being co-created by you and your environment every day.
Jason Silva’s most recent video on Ontological Design is a bit of a mind-bender that asks us to consider the way in which the things we create in turn re-creates us. He talks about the ways our environment molds and shapes us; that everything we design is designing us back like Escher’s drawing of hands drawing each other in an eternal feedback loop.
Mammoth cloning is closer to becoming a reality following the discovery of blood in the best-preserved specimen ever found.
Astronomers using the ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile have discovered an unexpected alignment of the spinning axes of supermassive black holes located billions of light-years apart.
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.
