The First Battery-Free Cellphone Makes Calls Using Ambient Radio Signals or Light

University of Washington researchers have invented a cellphone that requires no batteries—a major leap forward in moving beyond chargers, cords and dying phones. Instead, the phone harvests the few microwatts of power it requires from either ambient radio signals or light.

What Caused the First Human Death in Self-Driving Car: Sensors “Aren’t Sophisticated Enough…”

Tesla’s sensors were not “sophisticated enough to overcome blindness from bright or low contrast light.” Videographers know how easily blown-out light that is too bright can ruin an otherwise well-composed shot. Cameras can do a lot, but digital sensors aren’t usually good at compensating for this issue.

Construction Begins On the World’s First Super Telescope

With a main mirror 39 metres in diameter, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), is going to be, as its name suggests, enormous. Unlike any other before it, ELT is also designed to be an adaptive telescope and has the ability to correct atmospheric turbulence, taking telescope engineering to another level.

Scientists Just Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down for 14 Generations

Scientists Just Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down for 14 Generations

Scientists have made some incredible new discoveries on how our minds can literally affect our biology, especially through the study of epigenetics, the branch of science that looks at how inherited changes of phenotype (appearance) or gene expression are caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence. Instead of looking at DNA as the only factor controlling our biology, scientists are also looking at what’s actually controlling the DNA, which includes our thoughts.

Tesla’s Solar Roof Costs Less Than Replacing A Regular Roof

Musk said: “It’s looking quite promising that a solar roof actually cost less than normal roof before you even take the value of electricity into account. So the basic proposition would be ‘Would you like a roof that looks better than a normal roof, last twice as long, cost less and by the way generates electricity’ why would you get anything else.”

Elon Musk’s Plan to Save Humanity from the Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse

Elon Musk’s Plan to Save Humanity from the Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse

Elon Musk envisions a world in which humans are outfitted with micro-sized “neural lace” technology. When it reaches its full potential, the effects will be nothing short of mind-blowing. We will be able to control physical objects with our thoughts, have conversations between minds with no words, and literally live other people’s experiences, including all forms of physical activity.

This ‘Flying Car’ Could Be Buzzing Between Rooftops By 2022

The vehicle will initially run on jet fuel, but will eventually transition to liquid hydrogen once the technology becomes commercially feasible (read: won’t explode and kill everyone). The vertical-takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, nicknamed the CityHawk, will utilize Urban Aeronautics patented internal rotor system embedded in the fuselage to achieve flight
