A plane you can fly without a pilot’s license

IMG_1027

The first version of this “ultralight” aircraft somehow doesn’t require a pilot’s license and can avoid complex regulations. With current battery technology, it can fly about 15 miles before it needs to be recharged, though that range will increase as batteries continue to evolve. For now, it’s designed to be flown only above water, at a low height, to keep it as safe as possible. But other models that can fly over city streets are planned. https://www.fastcompany.com/40412335/imagine-a-world-with-empty-roads-but-with-skies-jammed-with-these-flying-vehicles?

Solutions to air pollution in cities

los-angeles-1790986_1280 (1)

Despite having a clear understanding of traffic pollution and its impact way back in the 1990s, air pollution in many urban areas and cities across the world continues to get worse. Some solutions are: create pedestrian only areas, especially where there are lots of people; implement low emission zones, areas for low, or zero, emission vehicles only; set up areas where diesel vehicles are not allowed -schedule deliveries outside of busy periods; modify diesel vehicles with technologies that improve their emissions; switch bus fleets from diesel to gas, alcohol, hydrogen or electric power; target the worst 10 percent of vehicles (which can cause up to half of all the pollution). On a recent trip to Delhi, for example) I noticed that trucks can’t enter the city during the day. http://www.innovationfuturespecialist.co.uk/gallery/traffic-pollution.html

A way for blind people to see

bioniceye-600

In a world-first, surgeons have implanted a visual stimulator chip in the brain of a 30-year-old woman. The patient, who has been totally blind for seven years, saw coloured flashes, lines and spots when signals were sent to her brain from a computer. Her doctors are now planning to send footage from a tiny video camera to the brain, which could provide the world’s first bionic eye and restore sight to millions. The technology bypasses the eyes, meaning it has the potential to restore sight even to those who have lost an eye or become blinded by cancer. http://www.brecorder.com/arts-a-leisure/arts/325793-worlds-first-bionic-eye-to-give-blind-chance-of-seeing-again.html
