SkyOrbiter: Looks like this thing could be the perfect missing/redundant piece to Google's multi-pronged offensive - along with project Loon, WiFi satellites and Fi - to give this planet cheap/free, universal and reliable access to WiFi.
Portugal-based startup Quarkson has tested its long-awaited unmanned drone Skyorbiter that is designed to provide Internet access to remote and inaccessible areas in the world at 100 times cheaper ...

New Android Wear: you can leave your phone home and still get your messages on your watch - half way around the world. (Apple can't do that, but you do get the privilege to pay the big bucks for showing off the thing to anybody who might care.)
Your phone can be across the room or across the world, and your Google watch will still work.

"Our system has the potential to fundamentally change the chemical and oil industry in that we can produce chemicals and fuels in a totally renewable way, rather than extracting them from deep below the ground."
The artificial leaf is a hybrid of semiconductors and bacteria that mimics photosynthesises, in using solar energy to covering carbon dioxide emissions into environment-friendly products.

Pretty amazing, this being 2015.
A particle detector can isolate, track and record single electrons emitted by radioactive gas, researchers say. Work could help solve a leading puzzle of particle physics - what is the mass of a neutrino?

Observing a 12-billion years old past through an Einstein ring Too bad we cannot observe the future.
Every now and then, the universe lines up just right for us puny humans on some speck of a planet in the no-where end of the galaxy to see something amazing. This is an Einstein Ring, a near-perfect manifestation of a particular variety of gravitational lensing.

+Rex Orwell I agree the concept of value is key (&understanding we are both digressing from the Einstein ring). The value that this robot (in your link) proposes hopefully can be translated way beyond cooking sophisticated English cuisine into tokens for automated intelligent services which could be exchanged for - among other things or services - a few minutes of human attention in the strictly human world? Which means human attention may be parsed into a new universal currency? Not that far off I would think?
