The burning of fossil fuels and plastic waste are devastating to the planet. 3D printing has the opportunity to move away from non-toxic, non-petroleum-based plastics from the get-go and 3Dom is on a mission to produce environmentally friendly filament. Their latest is called “Wound Up” and, to put the third ‘r’ in “reduce, reuse, and recycle”, the material is made from recycled coffee grounds.
A new technology in the food industry makes ordinary sugar twice as sweet—so food tastes exactly the same with half the calories, and without the controversy of artificial sweeteners.
Kuniako Saito, a Japanese engineer, has just invented a new way to travel: A transporter called a “WalkCar” that’s small, light and apparently easy to use. The WalkCar is battery powered and is about the size of a laptop. And although it looks like it can’t hold much weight and is made from aluminum, it can apparently have as much as 265 lbs on board.
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, tweeted in December that the all-electric carmaker was working on a charger “that automatically moves out from the wall and connects like a solid metal snake. A video shows it’s more bizarre and mesmerizing than we could have imagined. Of its unveiling, Musk tweeted, “Tesla Snakebot autocharger prototype. Does seem kinda wrong :)”
Boston Dynamics, a Google-owned company, scared everyone earlier this year with its hive-mind 160-pound robot dogs that can run on almost any terrain. Now the company is taking things to an all-new level with new video of its humanoid robot, which is the closest thing to a real-life Terminator we’ve ever seen.
Most people don’t change jobs because of their bosses. Or because their work is either too challenging or not challenging enough. Or even because they aren’t paid enough.
If you have a fear of needles the VeinViewer will relieve you of that fear. The device uses harmless, near-infrared light to show precisely where veins are located and take the guesswork out of finding a vein.
