Introducing the Leap (by leapmotion)
This indeed is as big as the invention of the mouse (imho)
The world’s exponential population growth will soon need to flatten out otherwise within a few hundred years every square foot of the Earth’s surface will be taken up by a human. Energy usage has also grown exponentially.One solution is to build a sphere around a star to capture energy. Called a Dyson Sphere, it would provide a virtually infinite living space 600 million times larger than the surface area of the Earth.It would also trap almost all of the sun’s energy output — 400 trillion trillion watts!
I’ve heard of Dyson Spheres in the context of solar panels surrounding a star but I have never contemplated it being an inhabited structure. This blows my mind.
A long peek into the future (put some future aside, it is a long read).
Early Bird Special: Filmmaker Michael Morantz created this inspirational piece from found footage:
The future excites me so much, that is why I made this video. We need to be inspired by the immense possibilities of the future and work extremely hard to achieve them. We can do it, we just have to commit.
Maybe we’ll start by committing to having a great weekend — baby steps.
I dont usually like ANY fashion concepts, but I like the concept behind this and could see the intent taking shape in some form or another in the future, rather than exactly as the Lady Gaga approach shown.
In ten years there won’t be an address bar, just Google, and without the address bar, there is no point in registering domain names. They will still work of course, but you won’t use them any more than you use numeric IP addresses now.
Google will sell its own name system that’s much cheaper than a dot com and allows spaces, punctuation and mixed case. Better still, because it shows up on the search results, there’s no requirement for each name to be unique.
