Interesting concept

Shape memory alloys the basis for more efficient refrigerant-free cooling http://www.gizmag.com/shape-memory-refrigerant-free/41652/
In an effort to make a greener, more energy efficient cooling system, a team of engineers from Germany's Saarland University is turning to shape memory materials to replace the refrigerant gases used in conventional cooling technologies.

Math, physics, and fun

Basic origami fold could create anything from surgical stents to satellites http://www.gizmag.com/miura-ori-origami-engineers-nanoscale-buildings-satellites/41514/
A versatile origami fold could be the key to creating just about any structure, from the nanoscale to full-scale buildings, according to new engineering research out this week. A team at Harvard says the key is a folding pattern known as the Miura-ori.

And it's in my hometown!

FarmedHere has high ambitions with new 60,000 sq ft vertical farm http://www.gizmag.com/farmedhere-vertical-farm-west-louisville-foodport/41569/
The US city of Louisville, KY, is set to become home to a major new vertical farm. The FarmedHere facility will be part of the new 24-ac (9.7-ha) West Louisville FoodPort that will be home to a community of food-related businesses. It will grow microgreens, herbs and vegetables.

Sounds a bit futuristic
A deal with Movidius will open up new machine-learning possibilities.

Pretty amazing uses

Paper waste converted into eco-friendly aerogel http://www.gizmag.com/paper-waste-cellulose-aerogel/41695/
Known as "frozen smoke" because of their milky translucent appearance, aerogels are among the world's lightest solid materials. Now, scientists at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have used paper waste to create one.

Real world testing

Dutch driverless shuttle first to hit public roads http://www.gizmag.com/wepod-first-driverless-robotic-drone-shuttle-public-road-netherlands/41578/
A driverless electric shuttle took its first load of passengers a few hundred meters down a route in a rural section of the Netherlands. WePod shuttle is hoping to operate a fleet of the robotic vehicles in the area in the coming years.

Major win
AT&T has struck a deal with Canonical that could shape the future of the platform currently "owning" the cloud... Ubuntu. Jack Wallen has the details.

Keep an eye on this!
A startup called Starry hopes to roll out a nationwide wireless broadband network to compete with local cable and phone companies.

Conductive concrete

Scientists and FAA testing a concrete way to clear snow http://www.gizmag.com/university-nebraska-lincoln-chris-tuan-conductive-concrete/41495/
Anyone who's dealing with the current snowstorm in the US will know that clearing snow is hard work and futile if there's another dump. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Chris Tuan may have put an end to the need to shovel snow, however. His conductive concrete simply melts any snow that lands.
