WO2001057881A1 — Technical and theoretical specifications for warp drive technology

Posted by in categories: innovation, space travel

Warp drive patent.


The present invention relates to the use of technical drive systems, which operate by the modification of gravitational fields. These drive systems do not depend on the emission of matter to create thrust but create a change in the curvature of space-time, in accordance with general relativity. This allows travel by warping space-time to produce an independent warp drive system. Differential electron flow through a body in rotation is directed so as to simultaneously pass through a said body in its direction of rotation and contrary to its direction of rotation so as to release a directed flow of gravitons.

Physics breakthrough allows Chinese to build the most powerful laser

Posted by in categories: innovation, physics

Though the laser beam eventually would be fired up in extremely short pulses – with no risk of a blackout on Earth – experts believe it would tear apart space-time for a brief moment to allow scientists to glimpse new physical phenomena that for now only exist in theories.


Technological leap would allow the firing of a laser 10000 times more powerful than all the electricity grids in the world combined.

Tel Aviv team develops RNA ‘missiles’ to directly target cancer cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, innovation

A team of researchers at Tel Aviv University has developed a breakthrough RNA-based drug delivery system to target diseased cells that could improve the treatment of blood cancers, various types of solid cancers, different inflammatory diseases and viral diseases – including coronavirus.


“We are the first in the world to deliver the drug exclusively to cells that are currently relevant to the disease.”

IQ Tests Can’t Measure It, but ‘Cognitive Flexibility’ Is Key to Learning and Creativity

Posted by in categories: innovation, neuroscience

Flexible thinking is key to creativity – in other words, the ability to think of new ideas, make novel connections between ideas, and make new inventions. It also supports academic and work skills such as problem solving. That said, unlike working memory – how much you can remember at a certain time – it is largely independent of IQ, or “crystallised intelligence”.


IQ is often hailed as a crucial driver of success, particularly in fields such as science, innovation and technology. In fact, many people have an endless fascination with the IQ scores of famous people. But the truth is that some of the greatest achievements by our species have primarily relied on qualities such as creativity, imagination, curiosity and empathy.

Battery breakthrough makes flying cars commercially viable

Posted by in categories: innovation, transportation

‘I would expect these vehicles to make 15 trips, twice a day during rush hour to justify the cost of the vehicles,’ says researcher.


The key is to rapidly heat the battery to a certain temperature using a nickel foil, which then allows for ultra quick charging without causing any damage.

“I think flying cars have the potential to eliminate a lot of time and increase productivity and open the sky corridors to transportation,” Dr Wang said.

Fresh Freezing System

Posted by in categories: food, innovation

Circa 2020


The behind-the-scenes tales of hit products and creations from Japan: this is Japan’s Top Inventions. This time, an invention that uses magnetic force to help freeze food without destroying its cell structure: a “fresh freezing” system. It was developed by a Japanese venture firm in 1995 as a technology that would help freeze food without altering its flavor. We look into the story behind its creation, inspired in part by microwaves, and learn about the latest versions.
