Nonprofit organization Thinking Huts wants to build the world’s first 3D-printed teaching institution in Madagascar, collaborating with established organizations and local workers. The school building will feature modular, honeycomb-shaped units powered by solar energy. The school’s hybrid design is said to cost half the amount of conventional construction costs by combining efficient 3D printing technology […]
These were created out of tear-producing cells
The inexpensive prototype utilizes solar energy and collects seawater to create a solar desalination skylight which emits natural diffused light. This device produces drinking water and uses leftover salt brine to create energy to be used as a light.
In a world powered by algorithms, two mathematicians have helped pioneer the field of computational complexity — that is, the study of the speed and efficiency of algorithms. László Lovász of Budapest, Hungary, and Avi Wigderson of Princeton, US, will share this year’s Abel prize, often described as the Nobel prize of mathematics. Computational complexity […]
Chris Ume, creator of viral Tom Cruise deepfake, said that he wanted viewers to “start thinking twice” about the content they are watching and that they may be fabricated, despite how realistic it may appear. Deepfakes typically involve a picture or video where a person or object is manipulated to say or do something else. […]
A report by Oceans Asia estimated that 1.56 billion face masks will have entered the oceans in 2020, which will result in an additional 5000 to 6000 odd metric tonnes of marine plastic pollution. These disposable masks will take as long as 450 years to break down and turn into microplastics as it disrupts marine […]
The project is supposed to help more jobs in Ontario
Meet Elizabeth Ann, the ferret
Aleph Farms, an Israeli startup, has successfully printed a 3D vegan ribeye steak — the very first in the world. The steak is made of lab-cultivated animal cells, a cruelty-free process.
[WATCH] Slovak Designer Petrakova wins top prize for ocean cleaning facility prototype called 8th Continent
A self-sufficient ocean cleaning prototype features a research facility, education centre, greenhouse, and housing for researchers. Named the 8th Continent, the floating superstructure could be the answer to the plastic pollution in the ocean.
