Once again, if true, this would help develop a horde of new products.  I'm curious to see where it goes.
Scientists from Ireland have an efficient and cost effective method of mass producing graphene. Graphene is an advanced material with many potential applications and the new procedure could revolutionize the development of a slew of new products.

I loveSlideshare and consider it a learning tool, both regarding contents and design (you can always learn from good and bad design ;) ), so i'm very happy to see the tool released to work on the Android platform. I'll go as far as acknowledging that, along with wikipedia, i've found Slideshare to be a good starting point when i want to learn about something new. Definitely a power tool in my #PLE  (Personal Learning Environment)

It's slowly growing its teeth to become a social network of sorts, or at least a complement to social networks, and it makes getting in touch with the authors' presentations that you like as simple as it gets.

A great example of how humans limit human development (of the human race as a whole), and what it takes to break the barriers and forge ahead an identity out of the expected paths.

Since video contents are on the rise for educational purposes, this makes sense:
 
EduCanon: an interactive video platform that lets #educators insert questions or notes for #students in videos. 

A useful  #learning  tool, especially for teachers who  #flip  their classroom.

You into #connectivism  ? Then you must read this fresh post from +Stephen Downes about what Connectivism is as a learning theory.

It ought to dispel some partial views that are sometimes portrayed as the whole deal. 
I think the students in the Building Online Collaborative Environments Course has an almost impossible task. Here is their effort to prove that connectivism is a learning theory. "Connectivism has a direct impact on educatio...

I'll admit i'm a little bit amazed at this and the potential it offers. I hope +Habitat for Humanity is following this closely and that the Chinese and other construction magnates will invest heavily their wealth in supporting the technology developments that can come out of that.
A Shanghai based design firm used a massive 3D printer to build 10 homes in 24 hours made almost entirely out of recycled materials.

Eye opening and super inspiring talk about the story we might want to inform our thoughts with regarding the future (next 20-30 years).

Among the points i liked best: Collaborative commons as the engine for development. A new economic model emerging that is characterized as distributed, collaborative, peer directed, and that scales through lateral economies of scale. 

I really appreciate how he underlines the need to change the narrative/mindsets.

For all the logistics/supply chain experts out there, there's also a very interesting and transforming view of the business that deserves pondering upon.

He also mentions threats to that emerging narrative (big business, if they can, and climate change), which makes it very realistic.

I think i am part of that movement, and hope to do my share of the work to create that world civilization.

Están un poco caros por ahora (digamos 10 veces más de lo que quisiera pagar) y no creo que tenga dispositivos que aprovechen la velocidad potencial, pero de todas formas me alegra ver ese futuro en el que vamos a armar redes de ALTA velocidad caseras con cables USB.
