Building Home with Science and Making It Smart

Wonderful AtmosphereAlmost every person enjoys the numerous benefits of innovative and modern science. In fact, even when you’re not sure how something works, you still plan to buy and use it. Car engines, Internet, Cell phones – None of these devices and networks make perfect sense. However, we’ve still taken hold of these technologies. It won’t be exaggerating to say that we can’t live without them anymore. When it comes to real estate in the modern world, the same is true about houses. When building home, you need to use science and technology.

What are Smart Homes?

A smart home is a regular house, except every electrical equipment in the home is connected to a computerized system. While living in an automated home with smart home devices, you don’t have to depend on any switches or some other types of manual activation systems. Instead, every television set, light bulb or thermostat can be controlled remotely from the computer’s database. Although it seems like a concept from a Sci-fi movie, it has been a popular practice adopted by many house designers and homeowners.

Game Changing ‘Biowire’ Technology developed by Canadian Cardiovascular Research Team

researchMilica Radisic and her team recently announced in the scientific journal, Nature Methods, that they have developed a new method of maturing human heart cells by applying electrical pulses to the cells, in a pattern that mimics the fetal cardiac development of humans. The new technology, called ‘Biowire’ uses silk sutures to grow human heart cells which are mature enough to be used in research and transplantation. Electrical pulse is applied to the cardiomyocytes that mimics the fetal heart rate of humans to stimulate a natural environment for the heart cells to mature in. This new process has achieved much better results than previous methods to mature stem cells derived from human caridomyocytes.

Radisic, who is the Canada Research Chair in Functional Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering, was named a “Top Innovator under 35″ by MIT Technology Review and has received the Order of Ontario and the Young Engineers of Canada 2012 Achievement Award. Her team included Dr. Sara Nunes, a scientist and cardiac and vascularization specialist at the University Health Network (UHN) Toronto, and Jason Miklas, a graduate student at the University of Toronto.

Commute by Electric Skateboard…Using Brain Power?

electronic skateboard When considering electric transportation methods, a skateboard usually isn’t the first set of wheels that comes to mind. However, thanks to the advent of new technology, the long-time vehicle of choice by kids and rebel teens alike has shone a new light on daily commuting. Some of the latest decks are equipped with remote control devices, as well as the ability to be controlled by the mind.

When 50% of the world’s car trips are under five miles, and public transportation systems often leave the passengers walking the last mile to their destinations, it’s no wonder manufacturers are looking to market the electric skateboard as an eco-friendly alternative to getting around traffic while saving gas. It’s becoming a great commuting option for those with balance, according to William Hurley, co-founder of electric boarding pioneers, Chaotic Moon. “In fact,” Hurley remarks, “Several companies have emerged in the past two years in attempt to grab a piece of this growing market.” He mentions that the two largest trends in the market are controlling devices and battery options.

French Scientist Announces Singularity Now Real

terminatorAssociated Press
PARIS
The Associated Press is reporting that an international team of scientists has announced that the long-awaited and hotly debated “Singularity” has been achieved. Dr. Renee Deschamps, who headed up the top-secret team, held a carefully-worded press conference this morning to announce that the first human hybrid, commonly known as a cyborg had been developed through the work of dozens of scientists who had been working on the project for the past 26 years.
The scientists’ work had been kept under tight security because not everyone is enthusiastic about the possible consequences of the development. Prominent bioethicist, Dr. Charles Rogers, of UCLA, has publically expressed grave concerns about the potential for disaster in creating human hybrids which could quickly surpass human intelligence capabilities, yet could not be invested with any human-identified morality or values. “Any such hybrids would have the potential of being the equivalent of intellectually-driven sociopaths,” Rogers said, “with capabilities no purely human being could match or defend against.” Continue Reading
