Hmmm; hope others are seeing this. Imagine a suit/ gear that makes soldiers unstoppable.


The demonstration is quite the spectacle, but maybe not as dangerous as it looks.

The vision for the future ground vehicle looks a lot like a dune buggy

Posted by in categories: futurism, military

Cool


The Army and Marine Corps’ next-generation ground combat vehicle could be designed to avoid threats rather than withstand them.

To that end, eight organizations received contracts from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to join the Ground X-Vehicle Technology program, where DARPA intends to create a nimble, go-anywhere conveyance that will be hard for enemies to find or catch.

What lies beyond face-to-face and self-checkouts?

Posted by in category: futurism

Nice; however, would like to see intelligent shopping bags. Bags that are reusable and the digital fabric enables the screening & paying each item using this technology in this article as the item is placed in the bag. If you’re like me; I hate going to stores and malls; and only go to accomplish a pre-defined list of items and “you’re in then out” no wasting of time. So, having a bag that quickly captures the item and processes payment as your loading your bag is ideal.


The old checkout process is out and the new is in, via new apps that have the potential to transform the retail industry.

Posted by in categories: futurism, space travel

NASA will hold a teleconference press briefing on Thursday, April 21, to detail its latest advancements in solar electric propulsion for deep-space missions. The briefing will begin at 11:30 a.m. EDT (1530 GMT) on NASA’s News Audio page, and will be embedded below if possible once it goes live. (Note: The window below will play NASA TV until the briefing time.)

From NASA:

Tuesday’s award of a contract to Aerojet Rocketdyne, Inc. for the design and development of an advanced electric propulsion system is the latest SEP milestone. A new electric propulsion system could significantly advance the nation’s commercial space capabilities, and enable future deep space missions, including NASA’s Journey to Mars.”

The US Air Force just broke the world speed record for magnetic levitation

Posted by in category: futurism

The US Air Force’s 846th Test Squadron is on a bit of a roll when it comes to breaking world speed records. A couple of years ago, the unit set the speed record for magnetic levitation at 510 mph. Then earlier this year on March 2nd, the squad broke the record again at Holloman’s Air Force Base in New Mexico, sending a 2,000 pound, magnetically levitated, rocket-powered sled down a nearly frictionless track at 513 mph. But that record only stood for two days, when the 846th set a new one at an incredible 633 mph.
