5 Technologies you probably don't know exist:
« on: June 27, 2013, 08:36:24 AM »
#5: Printable Organs

Quote
While the media focus on the possibility of 3D printing assault rifles, something far more meaningful has been going on in a number of university and commercial labs across the US: research to print human tissue and organs. Though printing every other widget under the sun is happening by leaps and bounds, getting viable organ tissue is moving in baby steps. One week ago, San Diego-based Organovo announced a new milestone in this field, using 3D printing technology to assemble functioning sections of human liver tissue

#4: Wireless Electricity

Since the time of Nikola Tesla - wireless transfer of energy has been reality - yet only recently has it actually been revealed to us, the slaves.

2012: Christopher Tucker, Kevin Warwick and William Holderbaum of the University of Reading, UK develop a highly-efficient, compact power transfer system safe for use in human proximity. The design is simple and uses only a few components to generate stable currents for biomedical implants. It resulted from research that directly attempted to extend Tesla?s 1897 wireless power work.



#3 Holographic Television

Quote
Basically Japan is promising true 3D television and images that do not require glasses and full court 3D experience (pretty close to holodeck like) by 2022. They will be using 60 to 100 million pixels of resolution to create the 3D effect. They demonstrated a 33 million pixel system in Las Vegas in 2009.

#2: Invisibility

While the ability to cloak metal - thus eliminating interference with wireless signals - or cloaking a sniper seems fantastic, the technology goes FAR beyond even that these days...

Quote
Physicists have worked out how to cloak a region of space from the quantum world, thereby shielding it from reality itself

Quote
Jeng Yi Lee and Ray-Kuang Lee at the National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan take the idea of cloaking to its ultimate limit. These guys have worked out how to build quantum invisibility cloaks. These are cloaks that shield objects from the quantum properties of the world outside. That?s not so much an invisibility cloak as a reality cloak.

#1: Car Hacking


Quote
Now there's another theory to contribute to the paranoia: According to a prominent security analyst, technology exists that could've allowed someone to hack his car. Former U.S. National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism Richard Clarke told The Huffington Post that what is known about the single-vehicle crash is "consistent with a car cyber attack."

Clarke said, "There is reason to believe that intelligence agencies for major powers" -- including the United States -- know how to remotely seize control of a car.

Wow! I really think the second one is pretty cool. Imagine if you are invisible, what possibilities you have! :p
