My mother is officially a futurist. She predicted this back in the 1980s despite not being a techie. She also predicted a moon landing when she was 12 (in the 1940s), despite skepticism from her family. :-)

Toyota to launch a hydrogen fuel cell car model next year. 
Something caught my eye though:
"He also said that hydrogen fuel is easy to store, better at capturing renewable energies than batteries and can be produced anywhere. "
Easy to store? Really?  I thought storage of hydrogen was one of the challenges of a hydrogen economy?

Using pluripotent stem cells, artificial blood (universal type 'O') could be produced "in factories" within a few years, suitable for transfusion in humans.
Wellcome Trust-funded stem cell research has produced red blood cells fit for transfusion into humans, paving the way for the mass production of blood

Before the dust settles on 4K video, now 8K has started appearing in Japan.
Japanese public broadcaster NHK made a splash with its demonstration of 8K, double the resolution of 4K television we'd believed to be the next thing.

A home renovation company that specialises in designing and building secret passages and rooms. Most people want them for fun and profit (they are apparently great for resale value), and sometimes to protect people and valuables.

Yeah I think this is more a middle class suburban thing.  Upper class if you live in NY or London.

I would like to see more of this kind of mobile robotics. I don't find it creepy at all.

I like this one. I always imagined a robot like this to be more soccer ball shaped but the spherical slices look like they work well.

Imagine the mischief of kicking one of these over a fence and letting it roll around!

Hi-fi buffs take note. More graphene goodness.
 
World’s first graphene speaker already superior to Sennheiser MX400
Graphene is frankly just showing off at this point. Not content with breezing in and smashing records in solar efficiency, kicking the butt of lithium-ion batteries, being the strongest known material in the Universe, being 1,000 times more light-sensitive than any known camera sensor and a thousand other achievements, now this smug supermaterial is having a crack at audio. How’s it going? Well, with basically zero acoustic development, a graphene loudspeaker is already boasting a better frequency response curve than a set of Sennheiser MX-400s.
