Ossur’s tech is so advanced that with minimally invasive surgery (completed in 15 minutes), patients can control their limbs in such a way that lag between impulse and action are indistinguishable.

Michael Talbot discussed that our own memories might work like this in his book The Holographic Universe.  From the article:  "Researchers have demonstrated pattern recognition using a magnonic holographic memory device".

This is sad.  The DOD I don't mind, but NASA, Dept. of Energy, and National Science Foundations sucks.

In the article they discuss how the future is more likely to be along the lines of Hatsune Miku instead of random songs generated by robots.  "Far more revolutionary is the fact that all her music—including the songs performed in concert—is written by fans."
Probably not. But that doesn't mean the pop star of the future is going to be a human.

I finally got a chance to see Ex Machina and was quite impressed.  I kept thinking it would fall into cliches, yet it never did.  One you will probably have to watch a second time to catch all the subtleties.
Ex Machina is one of the smartest, most thought-provoking science fiction movies in ages. And that probably conjures images of a slow, introspective Sundance-y film — but actually, Ex Machina moves at a ruthless pace, and kicks your ass up one all and down the other. Minor spoilers ahead...

“Before, I kind of thought of computer science was potentially an isolating field where I’d work by myself all day, but actually you get to work with other people and get exposed to different ideas,” Ms. Khan said.
A new prize aims to recognize colleges that succeed in attracting women into information technology, a field where they remain underrepresented.

Companies that package water in a single-use bottle are not concerned with the future.
There are few things on this planet I hate more than bottled water. Just the crinkling sound of someone wrapping their mouth around one of those squeaky garbage accordions fills me with rage. I stopped drinking it a long time ago—and you should stop drinking it, too.

One project will develop "Cyberheart".  The other project will combine teams of microrobots with synthetic cells to perform functions that may one day lead to tissue and organ re-generation.
Today the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced two five-year, center-scale awards totaling $8.75 million to advance the state-of-the-art in medical and cyber-physical systems (CPS).

Moran...and his team have developed an electrode designed to stimulate sensory nerve cells in the ulnar and median nerves in the arms.
To the nearly 2 million people in the U.S. living with the loss of a limb, including U.S. military veterans, prosthetic devices provide restored mobility yet lack sensory feedback. A team of engineers and researchers at Washington University in St. Louis is working to change that so those with upper ...

The Flash has been a great spin-off.  This?  This might work.  Rory (Arthur Darvill) from Doctor Who is a character from the future.  And this new team will be fighting a new immortal baddie by traveling through time.
We only just got our first proper look at The CW’s Arrow/The Flash spinoff show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this morning -- but now you can see them in action, as Barry Allen and Oliver Queen bring together an unlikely group of heroes to deal with a legendary villain.
