SSSHHH! by NASA supersonic jet #technology #travel

NASA have been developing a new super quiet, supersonic jet. The X-59 is 25 dBa quieter that all of its predecessors, generating 65dBa when flying at high-speed. The X-59 compares to the supersonic Concorde’s noise output of 90 dBa. The significance of this noise reduction is that the X-59 would be able to fly anywhere […]

20-20 vision in a bottle #health #rebootme

A research team from Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) have innovated “Nano-Drops,” which in the future, could correct impaired vision and replace spectacles and contact lenses. This would also potentially replace laser correction. The self applied drops are synthetic nanoparticles, measuring between 1 &  100nm (nanometers) in width, that adjust the outside and superficial […]

Microsoft go underwater for sustainability #technology

Microsoft have been focusing on sustainability and developing solutions for future data centres under water. By anchoring the centre, which are similar to a shipping container in size, on the sea bed, the surrounding water keeps the space cool. This avoids the use of standard air conditioning which also reduces the electricity load required to […]
