A team of scientists, at the University of Tokyo’s Institute of Industrial Science, has created an entirely new type of glass that is nearly as tough as steel. According to the researchers, the breakthrough could herald a whole new generation of incredibly sturdy windows and tableware. What is more, it could be used to produce super-durable displays for a range of electronics, including smartphones, tablets and computers.

Drones are forcing people to think about who owns the airspace above private property.
Can you stop them from flying it over your house? No one knows, and that is a big problem for the drone industry

Researchers turn REM sleep -- not dreams, as the headline implies -- on and off with the flip of a switch.

"The researchers inserted an optogenetic switch into a group of nerve cells located in the ancient part of the brain called the medulla, allowing them to activate or inactivate the neurons with laser light. When the neurons were activated, sleeping mice entered REM sleep within seconds."
Using optogenetics, researchers were able to send mice into REM sleep and trigger dream state.

Somehow I feel like Apple and Samsung will be fighting to use this in phones within the year.
Their "microlattice" metal is 100 times lighter than styrofoam but strong enough to be used as structural components in airplanes.
