Nanotechnology Paves Way For Implantable Artificial Kidney

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, nanotechnology

A team of researchers have created a surgically implantable, artificial kidney. The new device has silicon features and functions on nanotechnology. The new artificial kidney performs all the functions of a typical human kidney and it replaces the need for traditional dialysis and kidney transplants among patients. (Photo : Twitter/xprize )

Researchers recently presented a study that could lead to the development of a surgically implantable, artificial kidney, which is built with nanotechnology. This new study could lead to the development of an alternative artificial kidney for people on dialysis, with end stage renal disease (ESRD), along with persons on waiting lists for kidney transplants.

Alternative media choked on YouTube: petition

Posted by in categories: media & arts, nanotechnology

According Representative Press and StormCloudsGathering - YouTube channels both ‘guilty’ of reporting quotes, statistics, and facts that paint US foreign policy in a negative light, Google is actively denying them advertising revenue while continuing to allow more offensive coverage of the same subjects by mainstream media channels.

A petition has been circulated from Change.org, calling on Google to reverse its policy changes which deny advertising at so-called “sensitive” content. It can be signed via the link below.

Problems in the way Google sees the information media revolution of the internet are implied in the recent Mont Order society Seven Point program embedded below, which designated Google as a neoconservative-leaning organization. Disruptive technologies, and the potential of nanotechnology, were also addressed in the same section of the Mont Order program, which held a more positive view of individual technologies rather than the companies and executives promoting them.

Why it matters that you realize you’re in a computer simulation

What if our universe is something like a computer simulation, or a virtual reality, or a video game? The proposition that the universe is actually a computer simulation was furthered in a big way during the 1970s, when John Conway famously proved that if you take a binary system, and subject that system to only a few rules (in the case of Conway’s experiment, four); then that system creates something rather peculiar.

Spooky Action Is Real: Bizarre Quantum Entanglement Confirmed in New Tests

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

It just goes to show that one of the most potent weapons in science is the ability to keep an open, critical mind.


Two recent studies have confirmed that the “spooky action at a distance” that so upset Albert Einstein — the notion that two entangled particles separated by long distances can instantly affect each other — has been proven to work in a stunning array of different experimental setups.

One experiment closed two of the three loopholes in proofs of spooky action at a distance. Another found that quantum entanglement works over astonishingly large distances. And future tests are focused on making the final loophole as small as possible. [8 Ways You Can See Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in Real Life]

NASA calls on SpaceX to send astronauts to ISS

Posted by in category: space

SpaceX received orders Friday from the US space agency to send astronauts to the International Space Station in the coming years, helping restore US access to space, NASA said.

The announcement was a formal step in a process that began earlier this year when Boeing was given the nod by NASA to send crew to the orbiting outpost by late 2017.

Both Boeing and SpaceX have received billions in seed money from NASA to restore American access to the ISS, after the US was retired in 2011.

This new battery charges 10 times faster than the one in your smartphone

Posted by in categories: energy, mobile phones

Chinese technology company Huawei has announced that its latest prototype battery fills up with power 10 times quicker than the ones in current smartphones. Huawei has been showing off the technology at the 56th Battery Symposium in Japan this week, where a 3,000mAh pack reached a 48 percent charge in just 5 minutes.

The lithium-ion batteries inside smartphones, tablets, and other similar gadgets have two main sections: an anode and a cathode. Electrons move from one section to the other while our devices are in use, and then back in the opposite direction as they are recharged.
