Until a couple of days ago, I’d never heard of Pokemon Go. Now I can’t get away from the smartphone game, released July 6, but I haven’t played it, and I’m still trying to figure out exactly what it is. I feel old admitting it, but I had to look it up online for an explanation. Though if you have kids, you probably know more than I do.
With s Dr. Garth Webb’s Ocumetics Bionic Lens, patients would never need glasses or contacts and they would also never get cataracts because the lens replaces their natural eye lens, where cataracts form and cloud a person’s vision.
NASA is on a mission to improve communications between travelers in space and on Earth and is one step closer to doing so now that it has installed the first deployment of a new technology called Delay/Disruption Tolerant Networking at the International Space Station (ISS). The new system aims to provide uninterrupted connections between people in space and on the planet for not-so-distant space exploration. Basically, it’s internet — for the entire solar system.
Nikola Tesla was truly amazing man, with such grand visions. In 1922, Tesla predicted FaceTime, and just a few years later, in an interview with Collier’s Weekly, Tesla predicted the smartphone.
Some 5.6% of people online can be identified as internet trolls. Scientists have studied a group of 1200 internet users and found that they possess what can be described as dark traits. They have fun disturbing others by being disruptive and argumentative.
“These auroras are very dramatic and among the most active I have ever seen. It almost seems as if Jupiter is throwing a firework party for the imminent arrival of Juno,” Jonathan Nichols from the University of Leicester said in a statement.
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. Cameras can do a lot, but digital sensors aren’t usually good at compensating for this issue.
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.
