2 Quadriplegic Uses Her Mind to Control Her Robotic Arm
At the University of Pittsburgh, the neurobiology department worked with 52-year-old Jan Scheuermann over the course of 13 weeks to create a robotic
arm controlled only by the power of Scheuermann's mind.
ReCell by Avita Medical is a medical breakthrough for severe burn victims
The technology uses a postage stamp–size piece of skin from the patient, leaving the donor site with what looks like a rug burn. Then the sample is
mixed with an enzyme harvested from pigs and sprayed back onto the burn site.
8 Invisibility Cloak Technology Took a Huge Leap Forward
British Columbia company HyperStealth Biotechnology showed a functioning prototype of its new fabric to the U.S. and Canadian military this year. The
material, called Quantum Stealth, bends light waves around the wearer without the use of
10 3-D Printer Creates Full-Size Houses in One Session
The D-Shape printer, created by Enrico Dini, is capable of printing a two-story building, complete with rooms, stairs, pipes, and partitions. Using
nothing but sand and an inorganic binding compound, the resulting material has the same durability as reinforced concrete with the look of marble.
Pretty amazing stuff. Are you sure that picture of invisible cloaking wasn't from the Harry Potter movie?
I don't think some people would want to live another 100 years. Some people have some tough lives. I wonder if their skin will never wrinkle.
When are they going to find a cure for baldness! That's what I'm waiting for!
Inspiring thread friend! We live in such fascinating times. I look forward to the years to come and the new discoveries that are just sitting there,
patiently waiting to be found. Thanks for posting. S&F
That Darpa robot video was scary. It went running down that hallway. I imagine the goal is foot soldiers and swat teams of these buggers.
Fully armed, night vision, thermal sights, armor, gas, stun, with robo - dogs.
"Attention! This is BOT SWAT! We are here to help! Do not move! I said zzzt, shwwoosh, Blam, Blam --- DO NOT MOVE!"
the porcine enzymes is close enough to human to allow it to work and who would you get the enzymes from if it had to come from people. the stem cell
thing for extending life sounds like it might work but unless strict regulation came about i could see horrible abuse imagine all the poor people
forced to give up stem cells so rich could keep on living. it would turn us into real vampires the rich old living off the blood or life essence of
the very poor and yes it would happen the rich old bs want to live and they have the power to get what they want.
While some of these are amazing feats, Higgs-Boson was never fiction, it was theoretical. Very different. I also take issue with the invisibility
cloak, as that is a doctored image and not real. Some of these achievements are truly extraordinary though.
Discovered by the Japanese scientist Shinya Yamanaka, the method creates stem cells without using and destroying human embryos.
A little something extra I've just found out. They've apparently took t-lymphocytes that were specific to targeting cancerous cells reverted them back
to their stem-cell stage then cultured them and they were able to keep those antigen specific receptors which were actively working afterwards.

Thanks for making me look up the stem cell thing again. As, for the rest of the list; it's pretty cool. Especially the silk, stronger than steel. I
wouldn't mind some armor made from that.

Nice thread but what is the point in saying this? You should just end it there or finish it properly when you have had your "kip" or even better just
tell people to follow the link of where you copy and pasted this list from... buzzfeed
Anyway some of those tech were amazing, the in visibility cloak blew my min

Not sure if this is on your list. But researchers at Umass have created nano-technology that employs biomimickry of defensins to kill ALL bacterial
and fungal infections. This includes ALL antibiotic resistant superbugs. Resistance to the nanotechnology has not been seen and should theoretically
be impossible due to the methodology employed.
When i was a lad i wished for Star trek technology and wondered if we would have it when i was all grown up. Guess i have my answer. We create such
wonders yet still have the capacity for such evil. IMHO 20-50 years from now transporter technology and FTL travel may quite possibly be a reality. I
will be 75 in the year 2050 my greatest hope is to see us leave this rock and be off to the stars!
All we need to do is get rid of the politicians and bankers and we will be half way there! Star and Flag.
