Augmented Reality Or Augmented Humanity?

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, entertainment

A write-up from Popular Science on the bioethics conference I was a part of recently and the corresponding 2-min highlight video. It was truly a fascinating event, inspired by Deus Ex! And here’s the video:

With the release of the new video game, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Human By Design holds a conference to discuss the future of human augmentation.

Airbus reveals ambitious plan for autonomous flying taxis

Posted by in categories: drones, robotics/AI

If a self-flying taxi scheme didn’t come from the world’s second largest aeronautical company, we might think it was a prank. However, Airbus appears to be serious about its “Vahana” project, aimed at creating an autonomous passenger drone network, and thinks testing can begin as early as 2017. That sounds ambitious, to say the least, but “many of the technologies needed, such as batteries, motors and avionics are most the way there,” according to Airbus engineer Rodin Lyasoff.

Users arriving at, say, an airport would book a seat on a so-called zenHop “CityAirbus” drone, then proceed to a “zenHub” helipad, according to the concept. They’d be flown to their destination for about the same cost as a taxi, since the ride would be shared by several passengers. Luggage would be delivered by another service (zenLuggage, of course), and the whole thing would be safeguarded from hackers by (wait for it) zenCyber.

8/18: Mobius Malady w/ Rosemary Ellen Guiley

Posted by in category: quantum physics

Interesting read on history’s Quantum journey.

Since the dawn of the new millennium and in this slow and daunting journey through the first 15 years of the century, “quantum theory” has been a great aggregate explaining all that is possible. There have been a number of people who speak about the esoteric in terms of quantum entanglement as the halfway point between science and magic. It has been implied and critically so, that quantum mechanics are somehow proof or a good reason to say that anything can happen and it usually does.

However, it may be said accurately that rather, quantum possibilities should really be about probabilities which can be analyzed on a sub atomic level.

‘Great Leap Forward’: Chinese Satellite Uses Quantum Teleportation Technology

Posted by in categories: quantum physics, space travel

Hmmm; sure hope others catch up soon.

China has launched a satellite that it claims has teleportation-like quantum communication capabilities.

While humanity may be a long way from “beaming” humans aboard a starship, scientists have made major strides in teleporting information. In March, German physicists made major advances in “quantum teleportation,” transmitting data across physical distance without a time delay.

Beam My DNA Up to Space, Scotty! New Project Aims to ‘Immortalize’ Humanity

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, space travel

A new spin on DNA in space.

A new crowdfunding project could see humanity immortalized in space. Voices of Humanity, has one key goal and that is to help everyone on planet Earth to engage directly in space exploration.

The Voices of Humanity project is led by Professor Philip Lubin from Orlando University has developed the idea in the hope it will help them to develop a first generation laser-driven small spacecraft as part of NASA’s program to explore interstellar flight.
