Advanced Leg prosthetic for injured people who don’t have a “stump” of a leg. Using sensors and tracking electronic brainwaves, will create a leg which will function just like a normal leg. Only for one leg and also able to kick, run etc.
Whole Brain Emulation or ‘’mind uploading’’ is the process of transferring a conscious mind from a brain to a non-biological being by scanning the brain and copying it’s information and putting it into another being. Scientists are predicting this technology to be created by 2045.

Human Colonization on Mars. There are ten steps to make this happen. The first step is the planning of this journey, which started in 2011. The second step is the selection of the crew to come aboard to Mars, and never return to Earth, which took place in 2013. The third step is the crew training, which will begin next year (its similar to the Training Center in the Hunger Games, except the place is built to look like Mars). The fourth is the demo mission in 2018, or when robots will be sent out to test the environment on mars, to see if it is livable for humans). The fifth is the rover mission launch two years later, and the cargo mission launch, and the outpost mission wll launch in 2022. Finally, the humans will be launched to mars in groups of 4 (2 females, 2 males), in 2024. Two years later they will land on mars, and two years after that the next crew will be launched, so on and so forth.
Time travel into the future. There are several theories on whether time travel actually can exist and how time travel would be possible if it were accomplishable. However, out of all the theories I’ve discovered with Esther, the most realistic and interesting of these theories is that the mass of an object and gravitational force slows down time. If this theory were true, spending time around a black hole would be at least half as fast as the Earth’s time, meaning spending five years near a black hole, around ten years would have passed by on Earth, and the time being spent drinking a cup of coffee near a black hole, an entire Earth empire could fall, possibly even several empires. Therefore, being near a black hole, which has both a large mass and a large gravitational pull, can lead to time travel. To be able to reach a black hole and travel to the future, though, you would need something that travels close to the speed of light, and since nothing is able to travel as fast as or faster than the speed of light yet, to reach a black hole, you would need to use a wormhole. Wormholes are able to connect together different places throughout the universe, therefore causing someone to be able to reach a black hole. In order to be able to travel through a wormhole, they would need to be better stabilized. Stephen Hawking believes that there
Our topic is 3D food printing. This technology already exists in the form of the company Chocabyte who produces chocolate through a printer and chocolate cartridges. Our project will be based on improving the technology by seeing if it could be used in space and eventually be readily available in grocery stores to be used in homes. We will research and attempt to contact Chocabyte in order to gain more information and brainstorm how to advance the technology.
Our topic is bringing back extinct species and keeping the animals alive. This could give us a chance to turn back the clock on animal species that have decreased or disappeared through pollution or overhunting. On the other hand, we would be dangerously tipping the scales to the ecosystem, which could lead to more and more problems. Right now technology has been able to bring back certain species through frozen tissue, but scientists have never been able to keep the animal alive long enough to live out a normal length of time. We plan to look at how far technology is coming and if this could be a successful solution to the population problems among animals in the long run.
The Living Dead
Our topic is bringing back extinct animals from years ago. This was attempted in 2003 and succeeded for about 10 minutes. The basic background of this is cloning. They were able to bring back a Bucardo goat by tracking and monitoring the last available one until death. They allowed her to roam freely until she died. Scientists took a cell from her and were able to produce an exact copy of her. At birth her clone was having difficulty breathing and died 10 minutes later. We plan to study more into this topic based on our current knowledge of it and find out if it is possible in the future.
TEAM GLyM EVENSBERTSBURG
Our topic is engineering wormholes to make time travel possible. A wormhole is a theoretical passage through space and tome that connects two different points. Wormholes can connect two different universes. Wormholes are predicted to exist on microscopic levels, but they can be stretched to larger sizes.
Our topic is the holographic phone.
There are 3 other topics I don't have with me at home.
