Bitcasa’s limitless storage service is a cool idea, but it needs work. Imagine never having to worry about running out of space on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone for pictures, videos, or documents; or even having to remember where you saved a file.

A leading neuroscientist says Kurzweil’s Singularity isn’t going to happen. Instead, humans will assimilate machines. Miguel Nicolelis, a top neuroscientist at Duke University, says computers will never replicate the human brain and that technological Singularity is “a bunch of hot air.”
Neural implants are set to be revolutionised by a new type of graphene transistor with a liquid gate, say bio-engineers
A tiny startup called Ambri wants to transform our energy system with massive liquid-metal batteries. Standing next to the Ping-Pong table in the offices of the battery startup Ambri, chief technology officer David Bradwell needs both hands to pick up what he hopes will be a building block for a new type of electricity grid.

But what qualifies an app to be “best”? Is it sales? Design? Fun factor? Verizon thinks that’s all a [...]
Wrapping alcohol-digesting enzymes in a nanoscale polymer allows them to quickly reduce blood alcohol content. Researchers have reduced blood alcohol levels in intoxicated mice by injecting them with nanocapsules containing enzymes that are instrumental in alcohol metabolism. The treatment demonstrates a novel drug delivery technology that could have broad medical applications.
Who do you think should join the Innovators Under 35 this year? Jason Pontin’s essay, “Why We Can’t Solve Big Problems” had at its heart a fundamental belief that the solution to most, if not all, of our shared human problems will come from emerging technologies.
