Science & Futuristic Technology

Scientists build wireless pacemaker that dissolves in body (3 minute read)

Researchers have developed a battery-free pacemaker that can be implanted directly onto the surface of the heart and absorbed by the body when no longer needed. It is inexpensive and can be remotely controlled and programmed from outside the body. The device is powered by wireless technology similar to that used in the wireless charging of smartphones. It hasn't been tested in humans yet, but animal tests show that it can generate the necessary power to be used in adult humans.
South Korean 20-Mile Solar 'Bike Highway' Generates Electricity (2 minute read)

South Korea has a bike highway running between two cities that stretches for 20 miles, shields cyclists from the sun, and generates power. Cyclists use subterranean tunnels to enter and exit the path and they are protected from traffic on each side by barriers. The solar panels on the bike highway produce more than enough electricity to power the lighting of the highway and the electric vehicle charging stations. A 3-minute video that shows the bike highway from the air is available in the article.

Hi, I'm Trey Goff, Chief of Staff at Honduras Prospera, a private semi-autonomous charter city in Honduras. Ask me anything! (Completed TLDR AMA)

Hi, I'm Trey Goff, Chief of Staff at Honduras Prospera, a private semi-autonomous new city project in Honduras. We have worked with the Honduran government to create the world's most advanced special economic zone, focused on catalyzing prosperity and improving lives.

As humanity continues to grow more urbanized, a more dynamic form of political organization will be required. Our long-term goal is to catalyze this change, to create a world in which governments compete for residents and where residents voluntarily and easily choose their governance.

In Honduras, we are launching our very first prosperity hub on the island of Roatan. Ask me anything! (More details about the project on the AMA page).
