Most AMAZING Recent Technology!

Check out the most amazing recent technology! This top 10 list of recent futuristic inventions and cool gadgets from the future is absolutely amazing!

The 3D printer has started created organs for human use. Sure, prosthetics are understandable. But organs? Research is currently being conducted on artificial heart, kidney, and liver structures, as well as other major organs. Organs like the heart will be tougher but it is definitely possible. Can you imagine being the person that kept organs in stock? Checking your list...okay I need to print three kidneys and four livers today. The reason the 3D printing works so well is that organs are very complicated and the machine does a layer by layer scan of an actual organ. This allows them to give a very detailed printout. Crazy yes. But not as crazy as the ability to print out human skin! Now that craziness is happening as we speak! This can be to repair damaged skin or purely cosmetic reasons. #11 Needleless Vaccines What is your least favorite part of getting flu shots? Oh yeah, the shot. The needle that pierces your skin and stings. This new invention called the ImmunoMatrix patch will allow you to vaccinate yourself with a simple band-aid like patch. This isn’t just great because it’s painless but has even greater benefits. One: It takes a tenth of the vaccine that the syringe does, which saves tons of money. And two: it doesn’t require the glass vial, syringes, hypodermic needles, trained medical personnel, and biohazardous waste disposal. So again, it saves tons and tons of money. Can you imagine it being flu season and you just going to town to pick up your flu patch and adhering it at home? Dream big…and realistically! This is happening. #10 Endless Storage You know how a terabyte is really big? Well what about a million terabytes? Maybe a trillion? Okay, now imagine an endless amount of storage! Scientists at the University of Southampton have created and are working on advances with this technology. Not only will this device store endless info, but it is pretty much invincible to damage. It is made out of nanostructured glass and has the ability to record and retrieve five dimensional digital data by femtosecond laser writing. As for right now, it can only hold about 360 TB, but things are quickly escalating there. It can go through almost 2000 degrees Fahrenheit and will last longer than anyone on this planet…except maybe the tardigrade. The technology isn’t for public use yet because it is reserved for preserving historical documents first, since it can hold an entire library of books! They have already stored actual copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Newton’s Opticks, Magna Carta and Kings James Bible. #9 Wall Climbing Fish Ever seen a spider climb a wall? What about a monkey? Hmm…well, what about a wall climbing fish? In the Amazon rain forest, just recently, a wall climbing fish has been discovered. This may not seem like a scientific advancement, but in reality, it means everything! This isn’t the only thing odd about these fish, who were oddly enough born in caves only they could see and we’re colorless! This Ecuadorian fish defies gravity as it hikes up a nearly vertical wall for ten feet! It’s called a Chaetostoma microps, and is a suckermouth armoured catfish. You’ve seen suckerfish climb underwater, but out of water is a whole new thing! Scientists are ecstatic to study the technique and maybe use it to create wall climbing gear for engineers. Another thing that makes this discovery an advancement is that it has never been seen in this exact way before. Meaning, it has either learned the ability on its own, as a species, or…there are still many more species still undiscovered by scientists. #8 Cybernetic Implants The term cyberware is a pretty new field for scientists. Sure, the first pacer was implanted in the 1950s, but that was such a small advancement compared to today. We already have an “artificial pancreas” for diabetics. As of now, it is simply a pod implants into the skin by the wearer and pumps insulin into their body. But you see, there are two types of cyberware today. Brainware and bodyware. You know the datajack from The Matrix? Yeah, like that. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

Extreme Engineering Floating Liquefied Natural Gas - Megastructures (Documentary)

Floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) refers to water-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations employing technologies designed to enable the development of offshore natural gas resources. Floating above an offshore natural gas field the FLNG facility produces liquefies stores and transfers LNG (and potentially LPG and condensate) at sea before carriers ship it directly to markets. The world's first completed FLNG production facility is the PFLNG Satu located in Kanowit gas field off the shore of Sarawak in Malaysia. Petronas is the owner of the platform and first cargo was loaded onto the 150200-cbm Seri Camellia LNG carrier on 03 April 2017. Multiple other FLNG facilities are in development. Another FLNG facility developed by Exmar NV using Black & Veatch PRICO(R) technology passed performance test in October 2016 in Nantong China. Fortuna FLNG to be commissioned in 2020 owned by a joint-venture between Ophir Energy and Golar LNG is still under development in Equatorial Guinea the US$2 billion vessel would be the first to produce its gas in Africa. The agreement between Equatorial Guinea and state-owned GEPetrol Ophir and OneLNG reconfirms GEPetrol’s participation rights as partners in 20 per cent of the FLNG project. Engineering projects around the globe keep getting bigger and more ambitious. there are structures being designed and built that will dwarf anything that has come before. Plans are on the drawing board for projects so huge – not only in scale but in their implications for society – they’re almost beyond imagination. This documentary that eyes the largest construction projects ever imagined – 'Extreme Engineering Channel

The future of the chemicals industry: A capabilities perspective

Several future trends are colliding or combining to create significant change for the chemicals industry, and many of the established players are becoming increasingly aware that tomorrow's industry will look very different from how it does today. This short animation by PwC's Strategy& looks at the changes ahead, foreseeing some degree of break-up of the traditional specialties, and the emergence of a number of new ways to play. To be successful in the future, industry players will need to be much clearer about how they create value for customers in ways that their competitors cannot, and build the capabilities that will allow them to win over time.

Jether Blaise back with a vengeance, covering the impact the abundance of natural gas has been having on the chemical industry, and the innovations in process technologies that it has spawned. I look at the contrast between processing petroleum as a chemical feedstock vs. processing natural gas as such. Because of the steep energy costs associated with steam reforming of natural gas, and the Fischer Tropsch process, new approaches have been sought out by chemical engineers to lower the costs of producing syngas, or sidestepping that route altogether.

Also, we take a look at a promising technology for reducing the water footprint of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, and finish up with a look at China's largest propane dehydrogenation facility.
