Plates that trick you to eat less

mirrored-tableware1 (1)

A UK startup has come up with an idea that makes your plate look twice as full with food. Studio Playfool are hoping their creation could help a global challenge in relation to many people who overeat. Using visual trickery, the mirrored tableware, Half/Full, shows a mirrored image of exactly what is on the plate, tricking your mind into thinking you’ve eaten double what was originally there. As well as a mirrored plate, there’s also a cup and cutlery featured as part of the range, so you’re able to take part in any meal of the day. https://www.springwise.com/mirrored-tableware-tricks-brain-change-eating-habits/?

A fabric that’s tougher than metal

170607103434-hydrogel-japan-exlarge-169 (1)

Scientists have created a new hydrogel material reinforced with fibres that they say is up to five times harder to break than carbon steel – but still easy to bend and stretch. That combination of properties means the new fabric could be used as the basis for artificial ligaments and tendons designed to help the body heal, or in manufacturing where a very tough but elastic material is needed. Uses could include sports clothing, helmets or bulletproof vests. https://www.global.hokudai.ac.jp/blog/new-tougher-than-metal-fiber-reinforced-hydrogels/

A wearable device that could help us read minds

IMG_1774

What if you could “see” directly into another person’s brain? The ability to read minds, referred to as telepathy, is a concept that’s abundant in science fiction. It may however be possible courtesy of a brain-computer interface (BCI) — a wearable device that works like a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine. https://futurism.com/this-wearable-mri-device-could-help-us-read-minds/

Volvo to save the planet?

IMG_1771

Volvo has made the decision that all their cars will be fully electric, or at least hybrid, by 2019. Not one car solely powered by internal combustion engine will come off a Volvo production line by 2020. This will instantly change the charging infrastructure for electric cars. Currently you can fully charge an electric vehicle – one with a range of about 105 miles – in half an hour from a supercharger in a garage, however there aren’t enough superchargers. This move by Volvo will drive access to more high-speed charging points, as well as battery production and research and development into battery storage. http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/is-a-carmaker-about-to-save-the-planet?

A selfie that estimates how long you will live

IMG_1653

Artificial intelligence is being trained to estimate your health status and how long you will live-all from a selfie. With Chronos technology, you can take a selfie and scan your driver’s licence photo, against which your selfie is compared, to assess your premium for life insurance. http://www.smh.com.au/money/super-and-funds/a-selfie-could-become-the-new-way-to-obtain-life-insurance-20170616-gwsl2m.html

Wearable tech that can help detect diseases

IMG_1652

Engineers have invented a new kind of chip that’s a biosensor and can be fixed to wearables. It performs multiple functions that have traditionally required the use of a laboratory. It can analyze sweat or blood in order to detect multiple biomarkers linked to several diseases. The cells and the metallic layer of the chip work together to generate digital signals in the same way that cellular telephone networks keep track of each caller’s identity. This allows for the automatic detection of cancer cells, bacteria, and viruses. https://futurism.com/lab-on-a-chip-wearable-technology-could-help-detect-disease/

A solar powered machine that recycles waste into tiles

IMG_1069

This Trashpresso machine holds a complete mobile waste recycling plant capable of upcycling plastic and fabric waste into architectural tiles. A key element is the solar panels on its exterior, which means that it doesn’t require access to the grid or a generator to produce enough electricity for the waste upcycling processes. Another is its size that allows it to be moved nearly anywhere a tractor trailer can reach, including remote locations. https://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/solar-powered-trashpresso-converts-plastic-and-fabric-waste-floor-tiles.html

Making political donations transparent

IMG_1045

A new platform from GIS People is operating in Queensland to show the public what donations have been made to political parties via an Electoral Commission of Queensland website. The system means citizens can now see donations within seven business days, rather than waiting six months. It has scope to be real-time in the future and other Australian states could follow. http://www.afr.com/technology/startup-gis-people-promises-to-lift-the-lid-on-political-donations-20170413-gvkebs#ixzz4fyUsz3tc
