Are we becoming the immortal cyborg of the future?

Based on the latest advancement in robot technology, Greg Satell predicts that “The future of robot is all too human”. But what if the future of human was actually all too robot?

There’s no doubt: machines can often do work not only more efficiently, but better than us. Robots are becoming more advanced and are taking some of our jobs. With their sophisticated EQ, robots are also becoming a better partner in our daily life. Ray Kurzweil, Google’s Director predicts that computers will become as smart as humans in 12 years. How many years before they get smarter than us and overpower human? The alternative is that we enhance our own body and brain.

This edible robot will save lives

Made in the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, the soft robot is made of gelatin and can be easily digested.

The robot’s gripper is capable of handling various objects. Combined with other recent edible materials and electronics, the innovation could revolutionize medicine.

So far the robot is tasteless, yet the researchers are working with the École hôtelière de Lausanne, a world-class hospitality school, to create better-tasting robots.

Maybe one day, we will go to a “Robot-restaurant” instead of the hospital to do a surgery without opening the body. Who want to try the Bone-fix-apple-crumble-robot?

A cute smart sock that will save babies lives

How many parents wake up at night to check if their baby is still breathing?

The Owlet Smart Sock tracks babies’ heart rate, blood oxygen levels and alerts parents if anything abnormal happens. The company claims that “83% of Owlet parents report having better sleep while using the Smart Sock on their baby.”

Beyond harnessing parent’s piece of mind, the cute little sock will soon save  babies’ life. The device is collecting data to be able to predict when problems are occurring, not just when they already have. For example, certain heart-rate profiles may indicate that a baby has a fever, even before he’s sweating.

The power of scent: scented bottles makes plain water flavorful

A single can of soda contains the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. People who consume sugary drinks regularly (more than 1 cup a day) have a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than other people.

Reducing the consumption of soft drinks and drinking more water will improve people’s health. Yet here is the tension: While health and wellness is a growing concern for people around the world, there is also a well establish indulgence trend. People want both: be healthy and be indulged.

What if the scent was the solution to eat and drink healthy yet tasty?

This smart fitness t-shirt helps runners to find their way.

You can leave the phone at home, focus on your run, while your tee shirt brings you to your destination.

It’s simple to use: Download the app. Connect the app with the teeshirt. Enter the destination. Run.

The Sygnal fitness tee shirt indicates when you have to turn with a vibration on your right or left shoulder. The tee shirt also registers the steps you’ve done, the calories burned, the floor you’ve climbed.

Soon our clothes will be able to do as much as our phone. We might not have a phone device anymore, everything will be integrated in our clothes.

This ink is made from air pollution

While we wait for a  zero pollution world, why not transforming the pollution dust into something useful?

Graviky Labs created a device called “Kaalink” that stops the vehicular soot before it reaches our lungs. The pollution is then transformed into ink. Depending on the type, a 30ML Air-Ink Pen contains 30-50 minutes of air pollution generated by cars. Apparently they have already cleaned 1.6 trillion liters of air so far.

Lately, the ink has been use to create a street art campaign partnering with Tiger beer in Asia.

Ideally, this technology should be applied to all the cars, then the ink could be used to print news papers. (Who else need so much ink?!)

Smart idea from China: Dock-less bike sharing to simplify our life

We love the bike sharing concept yet we hate to drop the bike at the dock that is placed away from our final destination. The solution: the dock-less bike share. What is it?

Image right from: MobBike

This is a concept coming from China: Simply unlock the bike with an app, pick up and park the bike whenever, wherever you want! This is a much easier, cheaper, quicker, greener and fun way for you to commute in the cities. And guess what: It also burns calories!

The good news is that the service is spreading out around the world: mobike in Singapore, Spin in USA
