Here’s How Microscopic Drones May Soon Be Used to Prevent Heart Attacks

Would you believe that teeny, tiny microscopic drones could be used inside your body to prevent heart attacks? Researchers have completed the first successful test of nanoparticles that are targeted to go where they are needed in mice, and hope to soon conduct the first patient trials. These nanoparticles are designed to latch onto hard plaques in the arteries made from fat, cholesterol and calcium, which cause heart disease. Once they reach their target the little drones release a drug derived from a natural protein that repairs inflammation damage in the body. Each of the tiny particles made from a plastic-like material is 1,000 times smaller the tip of the human hair.

As Early as 2016, Robot Cops Will Be Patrolling Your Streets…….No, Seriously

By 2016, there will likely be a 6-foot tall police robot patrolling the streets and handing out parking tickets. The Telebot, developed by Florida International University’s Discovery Lab, has been field-tested and is undergoing final tune up. With a swiveling head and dexterous fingers, the humanoid robot is controlled remotely by a person wearing an Oculus Rift headset and motion-tracking vest, arm bands, and gloves. The voice of the remote operator is transmitted through the robot to the unfortunate citizen on the receiving end.

World’s First Robot-Staffed Hotel To Open in Japan

A Japanese theme park is opening the world’s first robot-staffed hotel in July. The hotel is named Henn-na Hotel – meaning Strange Hotel. Guests will be greeted by robots sitting behind mechanical desks and the luggage will be carried by mechanoid porters. The robot-receptionists will be able to engage in intelligent conversations with human guests. Even the room cleaning will be carried out by mechanical staff, and instead of keys guests will access their rooms using a facial recognition system.

4-Year-Old Boy Receives World’s First Artificial Pancreas

4-Year-Old Boy Receives World’s First Artificial Pancreas

Xavier Hames four-year-old boy in Australia became the first person to receive an “artificial pancreas.” The artificial pancreas features a sensor that reads blood sugar levels and communicates to the pump, which is connected to the body underneath the skin to administer the insulin. Unlike traditional pumps, this new technology does not deliver a constant stream of insulin to the body. Instead, the artificial pancreas uses an algorithm to track blood sugar levels over time, predicting when insulin is no longer required. This reduces the risk of dangerously low blood sugar levels, known as hypoglycemia.

Beam Me Up Scotty: German Scientists Invent Working Teleporter, Of Sorts

Scientists from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam have invented a real-life teleporter system that can scan in an object and “beam it” to another location. Not quite the dematerialisation and reconstruction of science fiction, the system relies on destructive scanning and 3D printing.

Where Virtual Reality Is Going

Where Virtual Reality Is Going

Jon Rappoport: I want to sketch the path along which virtual reality is going. Right now, companies are selling improved tech that allows a helmet-wearer to see landscape and people in a wider perspective, and hear layers of sounds to the left and right, and above and below him. He can also walk inside the virtual set up. He can’t touch everything he sees yet, but that’s coming. And perhaps one day, he’ll be able to sit down at a lavish meal and smell and taste the food. Sight, sound, touch, smell, taste. A five-sense envelope.
