"Geoengineering "theory that humans could slow, stop, or reverse global warming by "hacking" the planet with technological feats that alter chemical composition of the atmosphere; pulling carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, burying it underground, "seeding" the atmosphere with particles that increase its reflectivity, send more sunlight back into space.
China will focus more on the study and supervision of genetically-modified organisms (GMO), as well as invest in public education about GMO products. “GM technology is very promising and we must stand on top of GM research as China has quite limited agricultural resources,” Han Jun, deputy head of the office for the central leading group on agricultural work.
Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a sandwich? We're all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach - a chip under the skin. Along with access to doors and photocopiers, they're promised further services including the ability to pay in the cafe with a touch of a hand.
Use of "smart drugs"s, compounds that may increase cognitive function a rising trend among Silicon Valley entrepreneurs: so-called nootropics help business owners to beat off a cut-throat global competition, boosts memory, helps to focus, bolsters vision. Some require prescription, like Modafimil, a narcolepsy medicine, prevents a person from falling asleep.
Coffee contains a protein that has an effect similar to morphine, specialists at the University of Brasilia and Brazilian agriculture research company Embrapa have discovered. Moreover, the new substance’s effect lasts longer.
USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and a unnamed corporation plans to address the ‘boar taint problem’ which causes a pig’s meat to smell of male reproductive organs that can make their meat ill-fit for market by altering a pig’s genome.
A bell that has been ringing, nonstop, for at least 175 years at Oxford University. It's powered by a single battery that was installed in 1840. Researchers would love to know what the battery is made of, but they are afraid that opening the bell would ruin an experiment to see how long it will last.
As genetically-modified microbes take on ever more tasks – from creating new pharmaceuticals to turning out clean fuel sources – researchers have searched for a way to biologically isolate them from their wild counterparts, so that if they were ever accidentally released, they wouldn’t be able to survive.
Drones cheaper tooperate than regular fighter jets. An armed MQ-9 Reaper drone runs about $14 million, compared to $180 million or more for an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Drones that DARPA is envisioning would not be firing on human targets without approval from another human. What are those rules when it comes to robots?
Already, in developing countries people are storing money digitally on their phones and using their phones to make purchases, as if they were debit cards. By 2030, 2 billion people who don’t have a bank account will be storing money and making payment with their phones. By then, mobile money providers will be offering the full range of financial services, from interest-bearing savings accounts to credit to insurance.”
US Navy to demonstrate an electromagnetic gun, a fire-fighting robot, a helicopter drone and other examples of new military gear at an upcoming exhibition, February 4-5 at the Naval Future Force Science and Technology EXPO in Washington by Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Mat Winter and other experts from the US Office of Naval Research.
Each weapon is mounted with a digital scope that runs on Linux, includes several sensors that measure range, wind velocity and direction, target size, temperature, and barometric pressure. All these numbers are crunched by on-board computer, which displays the spot you need to aim for. The scope follows the target as it moves, when you pull the trigger the rifle doesn’t fire until you are on target.
A new robot designed to have functions comparable to a human being, revealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin at Central Institute for Scientific Research Tochmash Tuesday. Robot made five shots with its gun, able to effectively work on its own travel a variety of terrains, drive a vehicle, provide emergency medical aid. New types of guns also presented to Putin, including a new sniper rifle.
What if everyone could access the tools required to modify DNA, in the comfort of their own home?
It has already been invented; funded by mega corporations like Google, unveiled a device that can create millions of strands of DNA from scratch, they think it will allow DNA to become a “consumer product. Hand off the keys to creation to any jackass who can afford their machine Obvious consequences of this genetic tinkering, potential for mistakes to be made on a wide scale, creating new viruses, could unleash unspeakable horrors onto our planet.
FDA approval of the ‘Maestro system,’ an electrical implant to ‘treat obesity’ by impairing the ability of certain nerves to do their job, jamming them with electrical pulses that block signals that your brain sends to your stomach to indicate that it needs food, shuts down your biological instinct to eat.
