In an underground lab in California, scientists created a new hue called Quantum Blue. It's the latest result of humanity's obsession with harnessing pure color.
The next day I had the luck to be on my way to The Venus Project run by 100-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco and his partner
How about a near future world where a Global Autonomous Economy, run by Ai's enable people to work less and enjoy life more
Paulo Carreño King, the Mexican Foreign Ministry's Undersecretary for North America, traveled from Mexico City to underscore
This idea is part of the evolving science of precision agriculture, in which farmers use technology to target their use of water, fertilizer and other inputs. Precision farming makes agriculture more sustainable because it reduces waste.
The worries that even nanotech proponents had in the early 2000s about possible health and environmental risks - and their impact on investor and consumer confidence - seem to have evaporated. So what's changed?
Imagine what it took for us to figure that out. And the shifts in perspective that that understanding made possible. DISRUPTIVE
If Jeff Bezos, the billionaire CEO of Amazon, has his way, thousands of drones could soon be hurtling through the airspace above our heads, delivering millions of packages to Amazon's customers. Instead of having to wait the eternity of a day to receive their orders, consumers could get them in 30 minutes, or less.
When researchers need to compare complex new genomes; or map new regions of the Arctic in high-resolution detail; or detect signs of dark matter; or make sense of massive amounts of fMRI data, they turn to the high-performance computing and data analysis systems supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Life, as it turns out, has been working on the nanoscale for eons. We should take notes.
Once we're cyborgs, he says, we'll be funnier, sexier and more loving.
Self-restraint is not a characteristic of the companies developing robotics for businesses that want to replace tens of millions of both white collar and blue collar jobs. Look at the latest factories, refineries and warehouses to illustrate what is coming fast. Even the work of lawyers is being automated.
Big businesses and the private sector are undergoing a major overhaul as we all need to consider the impacts of our current rates of consumption, manufacturing processes, and sourcing of raw materials to sustain our future existence.
The spirals join a growing roster of inventions developed recently to stump counterfeiters, including "invisible" fluorescent
Waving his smartphone at the audience, Stanford bioengineer Drew Endy said, "I'm trying to grow one of these." Let the day of mind-blowing conversations about the future of biology begin.
Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize our world for the better in fields like energy, medicine and aerospace. As consumers, we all need to educate ourselves about nanoscience rather than fussing whenever we find "nano-" in our products. Unfounded ignorance could ruin the prospects of future innovation.

“In a few years, I expect to see prosthetic devices made of prosthetic skin that detects external stimuli and responds like real skin, operated by brain signals.”
