Brain reading robots

Brain reading robots

Developing artificial robotic arms & legs which would would perform simple tasks like moving around an obstacle (for tetraplegic patients for example).

Over time the algorithm can then adjust to the individuals preferences and brain signals.

Digital “twins” that track your health

Digital “twins” that track your health

Q Bio is a us company building a scanner that will measure hundreds of biomarkers in around an hour. Then, It intends to use this data to produce a 3D digital avatar of a patient’s body – known as a "digital twin".

This could help doctors prioritise which patients need to be seen most urgently, but also to develop more sophisticated ways of diagnosing illness.

Virtual reality universes

Virtual reality universes

You certainly didn't miss the last trending hot topict: Metaverse!! This new revolution aim to create a "digital" second world.

Of course, VR plays a central role. It is getting lots of funding right now and will be seeing drastic improvements in the next couple of years.

Direct air capture

Direct air capture

Reducing CO2 is a big challenge. Imagine a technology taking CO2 from the air and either storing it in deep geological caves under ground, or using it in combination with hydrogen to produce synthetic fuels.

This could prove to be one of the best technological advances for the future of the environment. But it has a lot of complications right now.

Green funerals

Green funerals

The average cremation reportedly releases 400kg of CO2 into the atmosphere. So, some companies are thinking about a greener way to die like composting the body, or using a special suit made with mushrooms and other microorganisms that aid the dead body decomposition.

Well, in my opinion, there is a very old solution that works quite well... burying the body. The soil will do the rest!

Artificial eyes

Artificial eyes

Bionic eyes is becoming reality. In January 2021, a successful surgery implanted the world’s first artificial cornea into a bilaterally blind.

Scientists developed an artificial iris fitted to smart contact lenses that correct a number of vision disorders. And even working on wireless brain implants that bypass the eyes altogether. 

These innovations will take the world of health to another level.

Energy storing bricks

Energy storing bricks

Scientists have found a way to store energy in the red bricks that are used to build houses but it's i the proof-of-concept stage.

This technology can change the way of thinking about our homes and infrastructures and how to use energy.

Sweat powered smartwatches

Sweat powered smartwatches

Imagine your wearable solution could be charged automatically by using your sweat... Yes you sweat and other energy source!!!

It could be possible in the near future. Engineers at the University of Glasgow have developed a new type of flexible supercapacitor. The device works by coating polyester cellulose cloth in a thin layer of a polymer, which acts as the supercapacitor’s electrode which stores energy, replacing the electrolytes found in conventional batteries with sweat.

Living robots

Living robots

Here we are speaking about a new class of artefact: a living, programmable robots. They were made using stem cells from frog embryos. 

These new machines can perform different tasks: 

  • searching radioactive contamination
  • gathering microplastic in the oceans.
  • traveling in arteries to scrape out plaque

Coffee power

Coffee power

The bio-bean company is working on recycling coffee waste. It can turn 85% of this waste into biofuels for heating buildings and powering transport.  

For information, London’s coffee industry creates over 200,000 tonnes of waste every year. Recycling in this industry could only be beneficial of environnement.

Drown forest fires in sound

Drown forest fires in sound

A new technology using loud noises to fight forest fires could be used in the near future. 

Since sound is made up of pressure waves, it can be used to disrupt the air surrounding a fire, essentially cutting off the supply of oxygen to the fuel. At the right frequency, the fire simply dies out.

The AI scientist

The AI scientist

Scientists have used AI to try to understand how can the flatworm regenerate easily parts of its body. By analysing and simulating countless scenarios, the computer was able to solve the mystery of the flatworm’s regeneration in just 42 hours!

The machine in this experiment was able to create a new, abstract theory independently – a huge step towards the development of a conscious computer, and potentially a landmark step in the way we carry out research.

Car batteries that charge in 10 minutes

Car batteries that charge in 10 minutes

The fast-charging solution of electric cars would clearly accelerate facilitate and accelerate the adoption of these cars. The problem is that fast-charging is bad for lithium batteries because of heat damage. 

However, researchers have now found that they can avoid the damage if the batteries could heat to 60°C for just 10 minutes and then rapidly cool again to ambient temperatures. This research can pave the way for the adoption of this technology.

Artificial neurons on silicon chips

Artificial neurons on silicon chips

Scientists have succeeded to mimic the neurons in our nervous system by attaching artificial neurons onto silicon chips. So they could reproduce the electrical properties of real neurons in minute detail.

Researchers hope their work could be used in medical implants to treat conditions such as heart failure and Alzheimer’s as it requires so little power.
