Scientists Transform Plastic Trash Into Liquid Fuel

Posted by in category: energy

In Brief A team of Chinese chemists have developed a method that could allow plastics to be turned into diesel fuel.

While several companies and institutions have been working at reducing the world’s plastic waste, they are hampered by the lack of means to dispose of them. The most common plastic, polyethylene, happens to also be the hardest to break down. But a solution seems at hand.

A team of Chinese chemists has developed a method for degrading polyethylene and turning it into a liquid fuel.

Could We Bring The Technology in Mass Effect to Life?

Posted by in category: entertainment

In Brief

  • The game designers for Mass Effect have gone all out for scientifically accurate weapons.
  • From rail guns to “element 0,” this science fiction game mirrors reality.

From the astoundingly stiff weaponry of 1995’s GoldenEye to the alien arsenal of the Halo franchise, video games haven’t always had the most realistic arms. But, in Bioware’s Mass Effect franchise, the game designers opted for scientifically accurate weapons.

Quantum Biology!!!

Posted by in categories: life extension, quantum physics, robotics/AI

What I have learned over the years is sometimes as we help our audiences learn in a pragmatic every day life how a particular science can improve their lives we then in time can share the science discoveries larger impact to people for their own development and understanding.

I believe with folks pramagtically in mainstream understanding Quantum computing and Q-Dot technology used for screen displays and graphene material in general, the larger mass can now understand the impacts and beauty of Quantum Biology. So the time is now to expand and evangelize Quantum Bio on a much larger scale so people/ consumers can now understand its impact to reverse aging, brain injury reversal and evolve to a more advance intelligence and function such as telepathy, immunology and new cell health to fit diseases like cancer, etc. Also, Quantum Bio will accelerate Biosecurity and robotics too.

This New Liquid Crystal Can Triple the Sharpness of Tv and Computer Screens

Posted by in categories: computing, electronics

Scientists have invented a new type of liquid crystal that allows tv and computer manufacturers to pack three times as many pixels into the same area of screen, while reducing the amount of power required to run the device.

This new type of blue-phase liquid crystal is so effective because it bypasses the colour filters used in current screen technology. This change alone reduces the amount of energy lost during light transmission by more than 40 percent.

“Today’s Apple Retina displays have a resolution density of about 500 pixels per inch,” says one of the team, physicist Shin-Tson Wu from University of Central Florida.
