LG has unveiled a TV screen that can be rolled up like a poster. The screen also has 30% transmittance, meaning it can be transparent, showing objects behind it. The plan is to release this to the public in 2017. http://on.mash.to/1keUvW0

The SupraPed robot, pictured here, is equipped with sensor-laden trekking poles to navigate challenging terrain. The creators hope it will be useful for recovery missions at disaster sites.

See these kids try to maneuver a 25-year old Gameboy and play classic Tetris on it. Though some had heard of the device, many had never seen one in person.

What technologies from the past have confused you when trying them?

A team of engineers from Sweden and the UK has created the first printed diode that can communicate with a smartphone. This will allow electronic labels and displays to be weaved right into clothing and paper.

Abby Paterson, an engineering student in the UK, created software that doctors can use to make breathable and inexpensive arm splints for arthritis sufferers. It will allow doctors to customize each splint using CAD software.

Wonder if this could also be applied to casts for broken bones.

The NuVu studio in Massachusetts is hoping to start a trend in high school STEM curriculum. The founders set up a partner program with local high schools to teach students how to design for 3D printers. http://bit.ly/1onJa77

How important do you think 3D printing should become in education?

NuVu demonstrates that 3D printing as the generative backend of an iterative prototyping design process can enliven traditional subjects such as geometry, bridge the gap between classroom and real world and between STEM and art/humanities, and place the accent on creative undertaking in education.

India is building a 50MW solar plant that will operate on a 1.27 million square meter floating platform (pictured here is an example). Building solar farms on floating platforms like this will allow countries with little land space to continue to invest in renewable energy.

+Wes Lambert - Distributed generation can make it more difficult for a power company to make the grid more reliable given the unreliable nature of the generation.  It would probably help the business owners and citizens have less need for local backup generation, or at least use less traditional fuel sources for backup generation.

I'm not saying it is a bad idea, just probably not something that a power company that is already struggling with reliability issues could handle as easily as an established company.

The RoboHow project translates information on the internet into instructions robots can use to complete simple tasks. For example, the program can take a website’s recipe and turn it into code that a robot can comprehend and follow.

I think these robots will probably analyse the human system and make imprerative decision on what food is best suitable for that person....there will be no need to order anymore,  unless you not buying food for yourself ofcourse

Since the first computer-controlled autonomous vehicle in 1979 (the Standford Cart), driverless cars have come a long way. Already Google and more than 10 car manufacturers have shown plans to build autonomous vehicles in the next decade. And in January of this year Navia became the first self-driving vehicle available for sale.
Do you think the world is ready for self-driving vehicles?

A new Japanese android, called the Kodomoroid, speaks so naturally, it can deliver the news on a live broadcast. This robot, along with another called the Otonaroid, are made with special silicone and artificial muscles that allow them to move like a human.
