Watch a chick develop and hatch outside of the egg

Posted by in category: futurism

Cracking an egg into a glass bowl and then watching the chick develop, grow, and hatch sounds like the most terrible idea ever. But this adorable and super-enthusiastic video from Japan shows that it can be done — and lets us watch the entire fascinating process first-hand.

If you’re anything like us, your first reaction to this is probably “What the eff is going on here?” and your second is, “Why the hell would anyone do this?”

The video doesn’t come with subtitles, so it unfortunately doesn’t give us many clues. But with the help of Sarah Caroline Bell over at The Huffington Post, we’ve done some digging, and it turns out the experiment is demonstration of technique developed in Japan a few years ago.

Scientists Just Used Sound Waves to Make Gauntlets of Levitation

Posted by in categories: innovation, particle physics

Researchers from the University of Bristol have used acoustics to make gauntlets that are able to levitate particles.

It seems that Earth is closer to Timelord technology than ever—particularly after a team of researchers from the University of Bristol in England unveiled their latest invention: the GauntLev.

The GauntLev functions similar to Doctor Who’s infamous sonic screwdriver. Well, almost. Timelord sonic screwdrivers can pick locks and disarm weapons, scan matter, and do a bunch of other cool stuff. Earthling sonic screwdrivers can levitate objects using sound waves.

There is a ‘game changer’ technology on Wall Street and people keep confusing it with bitcoin

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, finance

Wall Street banks are buzzing about blockchain.

Goldman Sachs says the technology “has the potential to redefine transactions” and can change “everything.”

JPMorgan last month announced it was launching a trial project with the blockchain startup led by its former executive, Blythe Masters. Her company, Digital Asset Holdings, has secured funding from Goldman, Citi, ICAP, and a boatload of other financial firms.

Physicists make first observation of the pushing pressure of light

Posted by in category: physics

(Phys.org)—For more than 100 years, scientists have debated the question: when light travels through a medium such as oil or water, does it pull or push on the medium? While most experiments have found that light exerts a pulling pressure, in a new paper physicists have, for the first time, found evidence that light exerts a pushing pressure.

The scientists suggest that this apparent contradiction is not a fundamental one, but can be explained by the interplay between the light and the fluid medium: if the light can put the fluid in motion, it exerts a pushing force; if not, it exerts a pulling force.

The researchers, Li Zhang, Weilong She, and Nan Peng at Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China, and Ulf Leonhardt at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, have published a paper on the first evidence for the pushing of light in a recent issue of the New Journal of Physics.
