A new thin film of quantum dots covers glass and transforms windows into solar panels the dots have a lifespan of 14 years and right now they're trying to raise their energy conversion efficiency from 19 percent to a more practical six percent and can Goro's a bio humanoid

Robot from the University of Tokyo that cools itself by sweating Vsauce Kevin here this is Milo kernel is developing a memory prosthesis the new company has invested 100 million dollars to further over two decades of neuro prosthetic

Research by biomedical engineer Theodore burger while company founder Brian Johnson has long-term science-fiction goals like the ability to download knowledge or exchange memories the current plan is to help people suffering

From memory disorders for instance using an algorithm to instruct electrodes involved in long-term memory to restore the circuitry in people suffering from Alzheimer's boosting brains to learn a thousand times faster what happens

Sometime down the road a new hybrid power fabric uses solar as well as mechanical movement to harness power solar cells are made into micro cable structures and woven with nano generators to create the smart fabric

Not only does it charge using ambient light but the mechanical movement allows wind and human motion to gather energy and researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology say the fabric could be used in tents wearable garments

Like scarves or curtains navdy is like projecting your smartphone onto your windshield the head-up display is the world's first augmented driving device that allows GPS navigation and phone access without

Taking your eyes off the road the steering wheel dial allows for scrolling through or skipping songs and zooming in and out of the map while gesture controls handle accepting and dismissing phone calls and after beginning

These e-paper displays are like reusable digital post-it notes Microsoft Research developed the display to run on office lights using a solar panel on the back it can communicate with other eat paper displays via Bluetooth that can be

Updated with an app and have a sticky back to attach to stuff easily right now this is just a prototype and isn't commercially available yet drones can be charged in midair using technology from Nikola Tesla scientists from Imperial

College London used inductive coupling demonstrated by Tesla which allows for wireless exchange of power between copper coils they're about a year away from making this commercially available and say that this technology could also

Be used in healthcare devices as well as interplanetary missions finally Stanford engineers have developed gecko inspired grippers to grab and move space debris I've learned from gecko lizards to make small adhesive grippers that here to

Smooth surfaces such as solar panels and fuel tanks with really little attachment and detachment effort similar functions have been achieved with the curved gripper ladle attachment force strong grip and cleaned attachment

I'm gonna leave you with a body movement activated midair display and as always thanks for watching there are those who say today that

Opportunities have ceased to exist things are finished we have everything and not enough for years the oil men cursed gasoline it was a troublesome by-product and they dumped millions of gallons of it into the rivers and

Streams then science discovered that gasoline was liquid horsepower in any one of thousands of test tubes of today there may be a million job opportunities for tomorrow and the industrial scientists and engineers are the

Pioneers of present-day America the creators of progress of new industries and new jobs it's a bewildering future all right not because there are no new frontiers but progress
