With this computer-aided long range rifle people who have never used a rifle before can shoot small targets 1000 yards away. Things like this are a clue about what the future will look like. Computers will be augmenting human ability in almost everything we do. Modern cars are already largely computer-assisted devices with your actions not directly controlling them, but imagine when it happens to medicine (computer-assisted surgery) and sports (think bionic basketball).
This solar plane is capable of crossing the US nonstop going just 43 miles per hour. It would take 3 days but they’re unable to do it due to “security reasons”. I wonder if we’ll soon start seeing solar-powered flying unmanned vehicles that never have to land.
This guy is trying to do something good and teach kids about important issues, and he’s being attacked for it. It’s shameful.
When I first heard about “3D Printing” I didn’t realize the impact it could potentially have. When a technology is brand new it’s often hard to overlook the limitations and see the potential, but now parts of machine guns can be created at “home”. It still takes a pretty high end printer today but it won’t for long. It’s hard to not consider what this might mean for people in the future.
Certainly this should be enough to bring some sort of widespread reform to the Catholic Church and its antiquated views on sexuality.
Sad story of a couple of independent farmers who created “chicken heaven” and produced amazing chickens and eggs that sold to some of the best restaurants in San Francisco and the bay area. Despite having the best product around they still couldn’t make the business work.
The idea of bringing technology out of the screen and into the world really resonates with me, but projects like this sound so hard to actually do on a large scale. It wasn’t easy to build the interstate highway system in the US either, though. Big ideas can come to life.
That article got me really thinking about what that means for humans as a people. Over the past 100 years we’ve increasingly moved away from collaborative working towards competitive. That’s also been a move away from fulfilling and satisfying work. As people become more selfish and greedy they pull even farther away from what actually makes them happy… connections with other people!
Science is fun!
