Man’s dream management
Scientists at the University of Massachusetts have developed a device to control people’s dreams using smells and sounds.The device has the appearance of a glove with appropriate sensors to control muscle movements, heartbeat and electrical conductivity of the skin. Sensors obtain information about the phases of human sleep. When the state of hypnagogy, which is an intermediate stage between sleep and reality, the device transmits an audio signal consisting of a single word – which characterizes the image that a person sees in the air. 50 experiments were conducted, all of them gave a positive result. Dreams are also influenced…Read more
Engineers will teach smartphones to “sweat” for self-cooling
Shanghai scientists are working on a cooling system for smartphones that will actually make devices “sweat”. Scientists have created a special sorbent that separates water vapor and removes heat from the device. The material absorbs moisture…Read more
A dangerous asteroid will approach the Earth
In February, an asteroid with the number 163 373, whose diameter, according to astronomers, ranges from 440 to 990 meters, will fly near Earth.Although the collision of this asteroid with Earth is unlikely, NASA attributes this object to potentially dangerous.
The asteroid, discovered on October 23, 1995, will approach our planet at a distance that is 15 times the distance from Earth to the moon.

Asteroid 163 373 refers to the Apollo group, that is, asteroids whose flight paths intersect the Earth’s orbit….Read more
In the US, the first augmented reality lenses were created
The new invention will also help people with low vision.
Silicon Valley startup Mojo Vision has created a display that provides night vision, oxygen saturation, microchip and energy management tools, and even developed eye movement tracking algorithms. The lenses will now give people timely information, freeing them from having to look at the screen or distract from the conversation.
It is noted that the lens screen will only be visible to the wearer. If the user is looking to the side, there are…Read more
From frogs: engineers first created work from living cells
The robot is an artificial body of living cells that can be controlled.
Robots made of skin and heart cells taken from frog embryos were assembled into stable forms, designed by a supercomputer and placed in a petri dish. The skin cells give the body a shape that resembles a drop with four “legs”, while the cells of the heart pump blood inside the organisms and help them move.
Each robot has a length of about 1 mm. Scientists call the development “xenobots”…Read more
Ilon Musk promises to employ 1 billion people on Mars
By 2050, Musk plans to build a Red City on Mars. To smuggle in the number of people, Musk plans to build a fleet of 1,000,000 Starship interplanetary starships, a prototype of which SpaceX unveiled in September. Each crew can carry up to 100 people.
Ships will only leave for Mars during 30-day “windows”, when the orbits of Earth and Mars are approaching as closely as possible. This happens every 26 months, so you have to ship every day…Read more

Sony Corporation is a media company producing a high-quality, modern electric car.
To answer your question: no, you won’t be able to buy the Sony car. Not any time soon, at least. The company has no plans to mass-produce the Vision-S, the car it surprise-announced at the end of its press conference at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, nor does it plan to do a limited run.
Instead, the Sony Vision-S really exists somewhere between a concept and a prototype. Like a concept, it’s meant to showcase the ideas Sony has for the world of cars. But like a prototype, the car actually works.
There’s actually a long list of those ideas … Read more
