Tesla Has Reduced Electricity Costs for Homeowners by 92%


The Powerwall

Imagine living in a four-bedroom house with a large array of appliances that are driven by a whole lot of electricity. After adding up the costs to power your home in previous years, you find that you’d been spending approximately $2,289 annually. But a year ago you installed one of Tesla’s new Powerwalls, a rechargeable lithium ion battery that you’ve combined with a 5kWp solar array, SolarEdge inverter, and Reposit monitoring system. When totaling the electricity consumption costs for this year, you see that the bill dropped to a mere $178.71.

Artificially Intelligent Entities Are Allowing Doctors to Save Lives


A Better Way to Diagnose

A study from the University of Michigan Medical School and Harvard University has concluded that artificial intelligence (AI) can help doctors diagnose brain tumors more quickly and more accurately. The team of physicians and scientists used deep learning to analyze 100 different brain tissue samples and accurately classify most of them into several broad categories.

After the doctors collected tissue using a method they dubbed stimulated Raman histology (SRH), the deep learning algorithm analyzed it. Normally during surgery, surgeons must pause the surgery for 30 to 40 minutes to allow time to Lees verder

The Future of Medicine is Artificial Intelligences And a Virtual World

Virtual Incision - Robot - Future of Surgery

Will we have Matrix-like small surgical robots? Will they pull in and out organs from patients’ bodies?

The scene is not impossible. It looks like we have come a long way from ancient Egypt, where doctors performed invasive surgeries as far back as 3,500 years ago. Only two years ago, NASA teamed up with American medical company Virtual Incision to develop a robot that can be placed inside a patient’s body and then controlled remotely by a surgeon.

That’s the reason why I strongly believe surgeons have to reconsider their stance towards technology and the future of their profession.

Surgeons have to Lees verder

Everything You Need to Know About NASA’s Epic 7-Planet Discovery Today

Alien Worlds

It wasn’t too long ago that we thought Earth was the only habitable planet in the universe. But recent advancements in space technology have led to the discovery of one exoplanet after another, leading to the conclusion that life must exist outside of Earth.

To date, astronomers have identified a few alien planets that could potentially support life. For example, five exoplanets that are particularly promising are Wolf 1061C, a rocky exoplanet about the size of the Earth that is 13,8 light years away; Gliese 832C, a larger planet dubbed a “super-Earth;” Gliese 667Cc, which is 22light-yearss away in the Scorpius constellation; TRAPPIST-1d Lees verder

This Chip Costs One Cent and Can Diagnose Everything From Cancer to HIV

Things To Come

Cheap, Good, and Fast

What do you get when you combine an inkjet printer, 20 minutes, a penny, and a drive to fight global health inequality?

Medical diagnostics magic.

A team of Stanford engineers have developed an alternative diagnostic method that may be a potential solution to medical diagnostic inaccessibility in developing countries. Their research, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, overviews a tiny, reusable microchip capable of diagnosing multiple diseases. As mentioned, the tool, which they’ve dubbed FINP, is surprisingly affordable, with a production cost of just $.01, and it can be developed in 20 minutes.

“Cyborg” Brain Electrodes Could Help the Paralyzed Walk Again

BCI Infographic

Glassy Carbon

Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) are more advanced now than they’ve ever been, thanks mostly to research that has improved our understanding of how our brains works. BCIs make it possible for thoughts to be translated into machine commands. This has given hope to people suffering from neurodegenerative diseases or those that require the use of prosthetics.


Advanced as they are now, BCIs still mainly rely on implantable chips and electrodes that are placed on the brain’s surface to receive and transmit signals from brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters. Lees verder

New Research Could Rewrite Physics From the Ground Up


What Do We Know?

From the giants in the night sky to the very particles that make us, us — everything involves physics’ theory: The Standard Model. Currently, the Standard Model describes elementary particles that are known as the “building blocks” of matter. These particles are seen in two basic types: quarks and leptons.

Each type has six elementary particles that are found within three pairs known as “generations.”


The first generation consists of the lightest and most stable particles while the second and third generations consist of heavier and less stable particles. Lees verder

Norway Says All Cars in the Country Will Be 100% Electric

100 Percent Electric

By 2025, all of the cars on Norway’s roads could be electric. That’s just eight years away—and if the target seems a little ambitious, it should be noted that the country is already well on its way toward this goal. Electric vehicle (EV) sales already comprise 37 percent of Norway’s car market.

Norway has been incentivizing the use of zero emission vehicles since the 1990s. These include exempting EVs from value added taxes (VAT), thus making conventional automobiles significantly more expensive in the country, low annual road tax, and no purchase and import taxes. EVs also park for Lees verder
