World's first 3D printed office in Dubai 1
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, stated that the UAE has emerged as one of the primary incubators of innovation and future technology in the world today, and its focused initiatives to shape the future have...
Underwater turbines are being built in New York City's East River as part of the first commercially-licensed tidal energy project in the U.S. Verdant Power says the turbines are safe to wildlife, can power up to 30 homes each, and has a permit to build up to 30 along Roosevelt Island.
In the middle of the river sits Roosevelt Island, a narrow, 150-acre strip of land that serves as the home base for a company called Verdant Power. Verdant has spent the last decade trying to harness the current flowing past the island to create a new kind of green power...
Drug turns stem cells back into 'embryonic' cells
If you want to harness the full power of stem cells, all you might need is an eraser. If they can't read that manual, the cells regain their full stem cell power - the power to become any kind of cell in the body. It's the first time that scientists have...
3-D printing potential fix for damaged cartilage
Researchers are now reporting that they have found a way to produce cartilage tissue by 3-D bioprinting an ink containing human cells, and they have successfully tested it in an in vivo mouse model. The development could one day lead to precisely printed implants to heal damaged noses, ears and...
AMD's Radeon Pro Duo Fury GPU Official
After first being teased at E3 2015, AMD has finally made its dual Fury GPU official. Dubbed the Radeon Pro Duo, the card combines two of AMD's top tier Fiji GPUs onto a single card, resulting in a claimed 16 teraflops of compute performance. AMD's previous dual-GPU card, the R9 295X2,...
Russia Plans to use Nukes to Fly to Mars in 45 Days
Last week, their national nuclear corporation Rosatom announced it is building a nuclear engine that will reach Mars in a month and a half-with fuel to burn for the trip home. Both countries prematurely quashed their nuclear thermal propulsion programs. "A nuclear contraption should not be too far off, not too...
India's move into solar sees early paying off
The price of solar power has plummeted in recent months to levels rivaling that of coal, positioning the renewable source as a viable mainstream option in a country where 300 million people live without electricity. Solar prices are now within 15% of coal, according to KPMG. If current trends hold,...
Death Is High-Tech in Japan's Futuristic Cemeteries
Nakajima's chosen Buddha statue is flanked on all sides by a collection of 2,045 LED-lit statues of variant hues, spread across the walls of this alternative graveyard space. Synced up to swipe cards, the statues glow a different color when a visitor arrives so they can be located more easily. As...
New glasses use mini-laser to project images directly onto retina
A Japanese company called QD Laser in collaboration with the University of Tokyo has developed a pair of glasses that come with a tiny camera that captures data and a laser that prints imagery from the camera directly onto the retina. The glasses are still in the prototype stage but...
Scientists achieve efficiency for water-splitting half-reaction
Splitting water is a two-step process, and in a new study, researchers have performed one of these steps with 100% efficiency. The results shatter the previous record of 60% for hydrogen production with visible light, and emphasize that future research should focus on the other step in order to realize...
