The breathtaking LIVE satellite footage of Earth so accurate you can watch cars in the street and planes taking off
A San Francisco firm has released the first footage from a revolutionary satellite it is set to make available to the public.
The footage shows planes landing at Beijing airport in stunning detail, so that individual planes can easily be identified, while cars can be seen driving around the airport.
Electrodes are used to trigger an orgasm, and its creator, Jim Pfaus, has hopes that this unique box can be the answer to those who live with orgasmic dysfunction. Jim Pfaus, who studies the neurobiology of sexual behaviour at Concordia University in Montreal, shared that the patient will remain conscious during the surgery when the implant is fitted, as the surgeon will have to zone in on the right nerves to which to fit the electrodes within a patient’s spinal cord. These will in turn be connected to the signal generator that is shaped like a cigarette box, albeit smaller, where it is placed right under the skin of a patient’s buttocks.
A hand-held remote control will send signals to the implant, where you can basically experience orgasms at the push of a button, where it has the advantage of being pre-programmed to deliver a set number of orgasms each week, or on a daily basis.
Given via injection or nasal spray, naloxone binds powerfully with opiate receptors in the brain, repelling the drugs the user has taken
Alex’s parents tried for a cochlear implant, which happens to be a 40-year-old technology that relies on electrodes to stimulate auditory nerves, but the surgery was not successful. With the Auditory Brainstem Implant (ABI) however, a tiny antenna which has been implanted on the brainstem allows one to pick up signals from a small microphone that is worn on the ear, before relaying them back inside to the brain’s segment that is associated with interpreting sound in the form of electrical signals.
The futuristic car inspired by TURTLES: Super-strong 3D printed design could take to the road in 10 years
3D printing has been used to make everything from toys and plaster casts to parts for jet engines.
And now one German automotive company has unveiled a revolutionary conceptual car body that it claims will only be made possible by using what is termed as ‘additive manufacturing’ or large-scale 3D printing.
The internal structure is inspired by the shape of a turtle skeleton and is designed so that it will provide incredible protection and cushioning, just like the animal’s shell.
That being said, it seems that Dyson has announced their second-generation of bladeless fans, the Air Multiplier, which according to the company, is 75% quieter than the original version! Now while the original version was something of a novelty with a bladeless operation, it wasn’t exactly silent, but with the second-generation, those who felt that the original was too noisy for their liking, this is something worth checking out.
According to a report from The South China Morning Post, it has been revealed that the Chinese government will be deploying drones to take to the skies where they will be spraying chemicals into the sky that will supposedly freeze the atmosphere pollutants, causing them to fall to the ground where presumably they will be cleaned up later.
In what may be a critical breakthrough for creating artificial organs, Harvard researchers say they have created tissue interlaced with blood vessels.
Using a custom-built four-head 3-D printer and a “disappearing” ink, materials scientist Jennifer Lewis and her team created a patch of tissue containing skin cells and biological structural material interwoven with blood-vessel-like structures. Reported by the team in Advanced Materials, the tissue is the first made through 3-D printing to include potentially functional blood vessels embedded among multiple, patterned cell types.
Human Longevity Inc. launched to promote healthy aging using advances in genomics and stem-cell therapies
Human Longevity Inc. (HLI), a genomics and cell therapy-based diagnostic and therapeutic company focused on extending the healthy, high performance human life span, was announced today by co-founders J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., Robert Hariri, M.D., Ph.D., and Peter H. Diamandis, M.D.
The company, headquartered in San Diego, California, is being capitalized with an initial $70 million in investor funding.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have created new nerve cells in the brains and spinal cords of living mammals without the need for stem cell transplants to replenish lost cells.
This new research indicates it may someday be possible to do just that — by regenerating neurons from the body’s own cells to repair traumatic brain injury or spinal cord damage, or to treat conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Sistemul de navigare NorthStar
Tehnologia dezvoltata in colaborare cu administratia spatiala americana NASA lucreaza acum ca un GPS intern. Navigare prin cubul NorthStar emite un semnal pe care Braava il foloseste pentru a determina in siguranta pozitia sa in camera, si, mai important, pentru a determina petele care mai raman de curatat. Cand ati terminat cu curatenia, Braava se intoarce intotdeauna la locul de unde a inceput curatenia. Aceasta este, de asemenea, puterea tehnologiei NorthStar.
First Solar is apparently inching toward manufacturing some silicon solar products, but that doesn’t mean the company’s bread and butter, cadmium-telluride (CdTe) cells, are taking a back seat. Not if this news is any indication: a new CdTe cell conversion record of 20.4 percent.
This beats the old world record of 19.6 by GE Global Research last year – and what do you know, it was last year that GE sold its own thin-film technology to First Solar and partnered with First Solar on solar R&D.
LAST year wasn’t kind to 27-year-old Jim. He was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and it was causing him a lot of pain. Drugs failed to provide relief, and it seemed as if the only option was to surgically remove his colon. Instead, he opted for something else. Two weeks after having filtered faeces inserted into his guts, Jim improved massively. “The blood and pain are reduced, and I’m not having to worry about going to the toilet.”
Jim is one of a growing number of people turning to faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) to restore their gut bacteria to a healthy state. The idea is to reset the gut flora using bacteria in the stools of a healthy person.
The pill that could slow aging: Researchers reveal groundbreaking study to boost health of the eldery
A groundbreaking new study could hold the key to living longer and remaining healthy in old age.
US researchers found a protein called SIRT1 extended the lifespan of mice, delaying the onset of age related health problems.
It also improved their general health, lowering cholesterol and even warding off diabetes.
Project Ara is a project being worked on by Google at the moment which is a modular smartphone concept where the goal is to swap out components and upgrade them as needed, much like how one would upgrade their desktop PC by swapping out RAM, hard drives, and GPUs.
Google will be hosting their first Ara Developers’ Conference in April, but in the meantime it seems that they are too excited about it and have decided to show off some of its early prototypes along with a demo on how it would work.
This demo was shown off during the Launch festival in San Francisco which took place this week, and where Google’s Paul Eremenko took to stage to talk about Ara as well as to demonstrate the device.
The video itself is pretty long clocking in close to 3 hours, so for those who don’t have the time to watch the entire thing, basically there is an endoskeleton which forms the backbone of the phone. There will be individual modules that will connect to the endoskeleton through the use of tiny magnets that will hold it into place.
We’re not sure how strong the magnets are, but presumably they will be strong enough to stay in place without moving about or possibly falling off.
Eremenko also described the vision of Ara’s ecosystem to be similar to that of the Google Play Store, where users can easily search for different components to suit their needs, much like how Android users can search for apps, widgets, and tools to customize their Android phones to their liking.
We can only imagine more details will be shared at the Ara Developers’ Conference in April, so check back with us then if you’d like to learn more.
The end of scratched iPhone screens? Apple takes a leaf from LG’s book and files patent for self-healing coating
The Californian tech giant explicit compares the coating to that seen in Japanese firm Natoco’s Self Healing Cure technology.
Natoco’s coating is made from polymer-alloy that works in two ways – it makes the surface so slippery its difficult for scratches to mark it, referred to as the Curling Effect.
It also has a Trampoline Effect which ‘catches’ scratches by the coating’s chemical internal structure that acts ‘like a spring, it splashes, and it returns it.’
Scientists have been able to get incredibly detailed views inside a living cell at a molecular level.
A team of German researchers have managed to find a method of looking inside cells in their natural state and have produced the world’s first X-ray of a single cancer cell.
Until now, scientists have had to dunk cells into preservative chemicals – killing it and subtly changing their internal structure – to get a closer view of it.
University of Washington computer scientists have built a low-cost gesture recognition system that runs without batteries and lets users control their electronic devices hidden from sight with simple hand movements. The prototype, called “AllSee,” uses existing TV signals as both a power source and the means for detecting a user’s gesture command.
“This is the first gesture recognition system that can be implemented for less than a dollar and doesn’t require a battery,” said Shyam Gollakota, a UW assistant professor of computer science and engineering. “You can leverage TV signals both as a source of power and as a source of gesture recognition.”
The technology is set to appear April 2-4 at the Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation conference in Seattle.
The researchers built a small sensor that can be placed on an electronic device such as a smartphone. The sensor uses an ultra-low-power receiver to extract and classify gesture information from wireless transmissions around us. When a person gestures with the hand, it changes the amplitude of the wireless signals in the air. The AllSee sensors then recognize unique amplitude changes created by specific gestures.
Sensors use three to four times less power than existing gesture recognition systems by harvesting power from wireless transmissions. This allows for mobile devices to always have the gesture technology on and enabled.
Gesture recognition already is possible on some mobile devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. But users have to first manually enable the feature and be able to see the device for the gesture technology to work, and if left on, the gesture system quickly drains the phone’s battery. In contrast, AllSee consumes only tens of microwatts of power and can always be left on. The user could gesture at the phone in a pocket or handbag to change the volume or mute the phone without having to touch or see the phone.
This technology could allow sensors to be attached to household electronics, making it possible to interact with everyday objects using gestures and also connect them to the Internet and to each other in an “Internet of Things” world.
If viruses really did gift us cell fusion, then they are responsible for complex multicellular life, says Coulibaly. Cells could have clumped together into clusters on their own, but without the ability to fuse they could not have evolved into anything advanced like sponges, let alone humans.
“Before cells can make something like skin or a digestive tract – as soon as you are thinking tissue and organs – usually you need some kind of fusion,” says Coulibaly. “If it’s proved, it could be a Nobel prize.”
Rey goes even further. He speculates that viruses may be responsible for the very existence of multicellular organisms. Viruses come and go between different cells, exchanging genetic information between them. “This makes me think that viruses have contributed enormously to the communication between cells, and to the appearance of multicellular organisms on Earth,” Rey says.
