The research team from the University of Oregon, United States, are said to have developed a system that can read people’s thoughts via brain scans, and rebuild the faces they were visualizing in their heads.
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.

The Hippo Water Roller was designed to alleviate the daily struggle of women and children, the primary water-retrievers, by helping them to more easily transport more water than they can usually carry in one trip.
Hawking added: The funding for projects directly beneficial to the human race, such as improved medical screening seems a somewhat lower priority (than designing planes and weapons with intelligent technologies).
Some predict that one day it won’t be a matter of choice, or that the use of implants and other types of bio-enhancement and connectivity will become so commonplace as to be expected, if not required. The fear is that we will lose our freedom and privacy in the process.
The Dutch inventor [21-year old Boyan Slat] of a ground-breaking project to remove millions of tonnes of plastics floating in “great garbage patches” in the oceans Wednesday unveiled his first prototype to help clean up the seas.
Promobot escaped its testing area and tied up nearby traffic. It was missing for 45 minutes before its battery died.
The machine, which is temporarily available for $995, is part of an initiative to help create more sustainable energy as well as provide electricity and gas for cooking in parts of the world where it is spotty or lacking. The machine is also portable, and can be easily packed up and moved, which makes it a fantastic invention for those without a permanent home looking to provide electricity and gas to temporary shelters.
The team says the mechanism was a calendar of the sun and the moon that showed the phases of the moon, the position of the sun and the moon in the zodiac, the position of the planets and predicted eclipses. Nothing of the sort was known to be made for well over 1,000 years.
Of the approximately 7 billion people on the planet some 6 billion of them possess a cell phone. That’s quite remarkable seeing that only 4.5 billion have a working toilet. Watch as AsapSCIENCE cover the body and brain changes that occur for users of the popular gadget.
“All of our heavy industry will be moved off-planet,” Bezos said. “And Earth will be zoned Residential and Light Industrial. And that just makes a lot of sense. You shouldn’t be doing heavy industry on Earth. Resources are more plentiful in space.”
