Nice thought-provoking post! I tend to agree w/ it. Also, the notion of a basic income is intriguing. First time I've heard of it but it makes a lot of sense imho. Unlikely to happen anytime soon, but I think it's much better than making people work menial jobs for survival.

I love how Google is unafraid to take home run swings on applying technology. Really looking forward to this and the self-driving cars!

Very cool if this does indeed work! A bit scary how much ambient radiation we're soaking up on a daily basis though.

These harvesters can gather free electricity from just about anything, including overhead power lines, coffee machines, refrigerators, or even the emissions from your WiFi router or smartphone.

This is a really good cause. I've spent far too much on Kickstarter but I think I'll be springing for this as my last investment of 2012.
Landmines cost ~$10 to plant and ~$1000 to remove. Which means that after super-powers and dictators are done fighting in 3rd world countries, they leave huge swatches of deadly land. Locals are generally poor, and are unable to find better homes. The result is that thousands of innocent civilians are killed or maimed each month. The invisible threat also cripples local infrastructure and national industry, preventing them from escaping the cycle of violence.

Mine Kafon is an incredibly innovative and cost-effective approach to a real, but overlooked, problem. Will it work? Unclear... but I'm willing to find out.
