Enslave Generation Next and all of this innovation slows... or stops

Written by Subject: Inventions
Free people's minds and the future will bring us independence and freedom... this is what is feared by parasites that live off the productive.
 
Every government program is nothing more than an excuse to accumulate a bucket of money that can then be poured into the waiting bucket of those that created the accumulation of many different 'buckets of money'.
 
STOP THIS.... and the future is full of almost unimaginable wealth for even the poorest. Once this is realized, there will be a struggle for our... 'consent'.
 
Here are just a few examples to jump start your imagination.
 
Another League Under the Sea: Tomorrow's Research Subs Open Earth's Final Frontier
Armed with better batteries and stronger materials, new submersibles aim to go deeper than ever before and open up the whole of the unexplored ocean to human eyes

By liberal estimates, we’ve explored about 5 percent of the seas, and nearly all of that in the first 1,000 feet. That’s the familiar blue part, penetrated by sunlight, home to the colorful reefs and just about every fish you’ve ever seen. Beyond that is the deep—a pitch-black region that stretches down to roughly 35,800 feet, the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

 Lab-on-a-Chip Can Carry Out Over 1,000 Chemical Reactions at Once

Lab-on-a-Chip: 1,000 Reactions in the Palm of Your Hand:  UCLA
Labs-on-a-chip are generally so specialized and specific in what they do, it's futile to try and explain what makes them particularly special. But in the case of this LoC from UCLA faculty, here's what you need to know: it can carry out upwards of a 1,000 different reactions simultaneously, when most others can barely do two or three.
 
Donate Your Computer's Idle Time To a Good Cause On Facebook

Progress Thru Processors
The space geeks of the world have long known about such distributed computing initiatives like SETI@Home, which taps into a network of logged-in home computers, using their idle processing power to crunch radio telescope data for signs of life. Similar applications exist for the PlayStation 3 (Folding@Home, for protein research) and several other platforms.
 
An Iowa 911 Call Center is the First to Accept Text Messages

Not in Iowa? Then Tough Luck Texting 911 Flickr/Sleepyneko
This may come as a surprise to some (myself included), but despite the current ubiquity of texting, there’s still at least one place that won’t accept your texts: your local 911 center. Unless you live in Black Hawk County in Waterloo, Iowa, that is. Starting this week, the county’s emergency call center will be the first 911 center in the country to accept text messages sent to 911 in lieu of a phone call.
 
30-Second Science: Sun and Water Enable New Self-Healing Materials
Three technologies that fix themselves

Researchers have known for decades that concrete fixes itself as cement particles near a small crack mix with air and water to form calcium carbonate. But some fractures are too big to heal on their own. Now engineers at the University of Michigan have mixed a new concrete formula with reinforcing glue-like fibers that hold it together under pressure, allowing only hair-width cracks that can mend after a rainy day. Available in a few years, the remixed concrete will cost more than the standard stuff, but less maintenance could make it cheaper in the long run.

It’s Murphy’s law: Park a new car at the store, and a shopping cart will scratch it. Soon, however, a sunny hour-long drive will allow the paint to repair itself. Scientists at the University of Southern Mississippi used chemicals found in crab shells to make a polyurethane paint that reconnects molecular bonds under ultraviolet light, even down-to-the-metal scrapes that current resin-based healing paints can’t handle. The new paint could be ready for automakers in two years. Digital Detour
Good as New: Chips will soon work around dead transistors.  iStock
All it takes is one burned-out transistor in a microprocessor to kill a computer. Now, engineers at the California Institute of Technology have built a chip with sensors that measure power levels in a circuit. When the chip detects a faulty transistor, actuators redirect the current around the bad one, in a thousandth of a second. The group expects to scale up its 10-actuator prototype into a full-size chip, with 1,000 actuators, in three years.
 
Precision Nanoscale Car Parts Self-Assembled From DNA
Scientists program DNA to fold in tightly controlled curves and circles—an important step toward building larger nanomachines.

In the macro world, the construction shapes available to us are numerous, and the tools to build them are straightforward. But nanoarchitecture has always been much more limited -- first to two dimensions, then to only certain kinds of three-dimensional shapes. This week, scientists have broadened the possibilities for nano-building, programming DNA to bend itself into complicated custom curves. The researchers revealed their creations in the current issue of Science: a group of tight little gears, tubes, and a wireframe ball.
 
Microbial Fuel Cell Cleans Wastewater, Desalinates Seawater, and Generates Power
Not bad for a microbe

Microbial fuel cell desalinates water while generating electricity: This microbial fuel cell not only cleans wastewater while generating electricity, but also desalinates seawater. Dave Jones, Penn State
Desalinization technology has long been trapped between two competing nightmare scenarios. Without desalination, fresh water resources run out and large swaths of the earth suffer crippling water shortages. But if we desalinate on a large scale, we keep burning fossil fuels, the earth warms, the ice caps melt, and sea levels rise to wreak havoc on coastal regions.
 
The Future of Farming: Eight Solutions For a Hungry World
The challenge of growing twice as much food by 2050 to feed nine billion people—with less and less land—is everyone’s problem. But scientists are hard at work fomenting a second green revolution.

Today’s crops crisscross the globe: Mexico’s tomatoes end up on your plate, our wheat heads to Africa. As a result, the challenge of growing twice as much food by 2050 to feed nine billion people—with less and less land—is everyone’s problem. But scientists are hard at work fomenting a second green revolution. Here’s how nitrogen-spewing microbes, underground soil sensors and fruit-picking robots will help keep food on our tables.

1. Farm the Desert

70%: Amount of the world’s freshwater used for agriculture
Solution Greenhouses built near coasts turn plentiful seawater into freshwater for crops, without expensive desalinization plants.
Potential Farmers could grow cash crops like lettuce and tomatoes in the desert.

ETA Three pilot projects are under way, and researchers are scouting sites for a larger full-scale project.
 
Can This Chinese Farmer's DIY Helicopter Really Fly?
Reportedly, the wooden copter can soar up to 2,600 feet, but the Chinese government has grounded it for safety reasons

That's One Crazy Copter: A farmer cares to bet his life on his DIY copter, but the Chinese government says no.  DVICE
Anyone who dares to build a helicopter with wooden blades, a steel-pipe-reinforced frame, and a motorcycle engine deserves to go up in the thing. But the Chinese government has forbidden farmer Wu Zhongyuan from even attempting a test flight. We just want to see if the crazy contraption can fly.
 
SeaDoo's 255-Horsepower RXT iS: The World's Most Advanced Jet Ski Tried to Rip My Face Off
As you can see from our on-board camera, going 70mph on a jet ski is, well, scary. Thankfully, the RXT is the first personal watercraft with a brake

Sea-Doo RXT iS:  John Mahoney
It's not every day you get to saddle up on a $15,000 watercraft with 255 horses, a top speed of 70+ mph and the world's first braking system for jet skis. It's also not every day you get to point said beast into a 30mph wind and floor it, doing zero to sixty faster than an Italian supercar while said wind has its way with your face.
This is, for the most part, what it looks like, thanks to a GoPro Hero Wide camera mounted on the hull by our buddy Joel Johnson:
