Incredibly inspiring and insightful: Astro Teller discusses the hardest part of the innovation process—the part where you come into contact with the realities of weather, physics, humanity, and much much more whose impact on your work won’t be predicted by a book or taught in school. These unexpected and unforgiving elements stand between you and the moment when your invention or company has made something in the world fundamentally different and (hopefully!) better. And they are what’s going to teach you and test you and carry you to the right answer (eventually!). You have to experience what it’s like to try something, fail, learn, and try again...relentlessly, dispassionately, creatively. Astro will share never-before-heard stories—and hard-earned lessons—from Project Loon, the self-driving car, and more. Google[x]—the semi-secret “moonshot factory” for new technology that sounds like science fiction—has gradually been opening itself up and making contact with the real world.

The Xerox park of our time? Thanks for inspiration, I will see if +GenieBelt can fail faster at something. (Coincidence that we also use Genie as part of our name - we also work on a moonshot for construction).

Can we create new senses for humans?

#TED   #technology   #brain   #senses  
As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces — such as a sensory vest — to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

Google and the search for immortality
“If you ask me today, is it possible to live to be 500? The answer is yes,” says Bill Maris, the president of Google Ventures

#Google   #longevity   #bloomberg   #googleventures   #life   #immortality  
Bill Maris has $425 million to invest this year, and the freedom to invest it however he wants. He's looking for companies that will slow aging, reverse disease, and extend life.

500 hundred years is a very nice start.  As much as I love Australia, if Google was a Country I would apply for residency!

Play this game to come up with innovative ideas

#TED   #innovation   #game  
Shimpei Takahashi always dreamed of designing toys. But when he started work as a toy developer, he found that the pressure to use data as a starting point for design quashed his creativity. In this short, funny talk, Takahashi describes how he got his ideas flowing again, and shares a simple game anyone can play to generate new ideas. (In Japanese with English subtitles.)

We all have women in our life who inspire us by making an impact in science or business, education or at home. But what about the next generation of leaders? 

This Women’s History Month, join us as we #InspireGirls to hack, hustle, create and dream big. We’ll be sharing stories from girls who hope to change the game, and featuring advice from women who are already making a difference. Follow along, share your own stories using #InspireGirls and check our blog for more information: http://goo.gl/hwgJPU #IWD2015 #makeithappen

Solve for X is a community of individuals and organizations working to accelerate progress on technology moonshots.
Introduction
Solve for X is a forum to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audaciousness of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon to give us all hope that these ideas could really be brought to life.

This combination of things - a huge problem to solve, a radical solution for solving it, and the breakthrough technology to make it happen - is the essence of a moonshot.

Solve for X is intended to be a forum to encourage and amplify technology-based moonshot thinking and teamwork.
