Humans have long and hard strived to be run faster and jump higher. Now that can be achieved for a little over $300! Welcome the Powerizers:

Strap Powerizers on and you will be able to jump 2m (7ft) in the air, leap 3m (10ft) for every stride and run at speeds of 20mph. Powerizers work like a super-muscle, enhancing your natural strength. Curved springs attach to the bottom of the Powerizers and harness the gravitational energy that is created when your weight is forced down. The super-charged springs then push back with extreme force causing you to walk, run and jump like never before. (Video)

An MIT researcher has found a way to significantly improve the efficiently of an important type of silicon solar cells while keeping costs about the same. The technology is being commercialized by a startup in Lexington, MA, called 1366 Technologies, which today announced its first round of funding. Venture capitalists invested $12.8 million in the company.
