SOCOM Wants Iron-Man Suits for A Teams:

"The US Special Operations Command is looking for revolutionary new gear
assisting troops in exceeding human performance in combat. The idea sounds
similar to a science fiction tale, but if the command will be successful in its quest –
this time it may be real. The command has posted a Request For Information (RFI)
to government research centers, academy and industry, to provide information
that could contribute to the evolution of the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit,
or TALOS. Defense-Update reports.

The kit will be applied as part of a futuristic uniform suit, using powered
exoskeleton providing the wearer superhuman strength or ultra protection with
full-body ballistic armor. Using wide-area networking, wearable computers and
antennae, operators will have more situational awareness, through bionic visual
and aural sensing. Other technologies that could be implemented include
non-visual means of information display, including the utilization of cognitive
thoughts and immersive displays depicting personalized information over the
surrounding environment. health and medical monitoring features could employ
embedded monitoring, oxygen supply systems, wound stasis and
electromechanical compensation. Thermal and energy generation and
management are also likely to be explored."

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

For power they might have to go larger. Eventually saying "to hell with it" and strap on a gas turbine engine on a 15 foot tall suit.

This Man Is Not a Cyborg. Yet.:

"His project, called the 2045 Initiative, for the year he hopes it is completed,
envisions the mass production of lifelike, low-cost avatars that can be uploaded with
the contents of a human brain, complete with all the particulars of consciousness
and personality.

What Mr. Itskov is striving for makes wearable computers, like Google Glass, seem
as about as futuristic as Lincoln Logs. This would be a digital copy of your mind in a
nonbiological carrier, a version of a fully sentient person that could live for hundreds
or thousands of years. Or longer. Mr. Itskov unabashedly drops the word
“immortality” into conversation."

3-D printing goes from sci-fi fantasy to reality:

"Once a science-fiction fantasy, three-dimensional printers are popping up
everywhere from the desks of home hobbyists to Air Force drone research centers.
The machines, generally the size of a microwave oven and costing $400 to more
than $500,000, extrude layer upon layer of plastics or other materials, including
metal, to create 3-D objects with moving parts.

Users are able to make just about anything they like: iPad stands, guitars, jewelry,
even guns. But experts warn this cool innovation could soon turn controversial —
because of safety concerns but also the potential for the technology to alter
economies that rely on manufacturing.

Am I wrong or Alvin and Heidi Toffler did wrote about years ago the use of 3d printer, especially for the military?

Quantum boffins send data across Time and Space:

"Researchers in Israel have pulled a trick that makes quantum physics seem even
stranger than an episode of Doctor Who – they've created a pair of photons that
was briefly entangled not across space, but across time.

The last time El Reg discussed time-like entanglement it was being proposed as a
theoretical construct. The idea put forward then was that by interacting with the
quantum vacuum, two photons existing at different points in time could become
entangled.

That, however, was just a proposal for one way that a time-like entanglement
might exist. Now, in this paper at Arxiv (now published in Physical Review
Letters), the University of Jerusalem researchers have demonstrated that it can
be done."

I love how it takes experts to caution about this. It should be painfully obvious that an invention which allows you to make your own stuff would have an impact on an economy that relies on paying other people to make stuff for you.

It's a conversation we really need to have, since we've been putting it off for a hundred years or so. Technology is making the current economy obsolete. What do you do with a society that no longer revolves around employment and consumerism?

Well it probably won't be for sometime until someone is able to build a 3D printer that prints 3D printers.

RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend...

There goes manufacturing economies.

So when are we getting an upgrade to universal constructors?

I believe this wasn't posted here yet: '

Is our universe merely one of billions?

Evidence of the existence of 'multiverse' revealed for the first time by cosmic map

  • Claim anomalies show gravitational pull from other universes

“Temporal cloak” used to hide data transmitted at 12.7 Gbps:

"In the past few years, there have been a regular series of announcements
about devices that cloak something in space. These typically bend light around
the cloak so that it comes out behind the object looking as if it had never shifted
at all. In contrast, there's just been a single description of a temporal cloaking
device, something that hides an event in time. The device works because in some
media different frequencies of light move at different speeds. With the right
combination of frequency shifts, it's possible to create and then re-seal a break in
a light beam.

But that particular cloak could only create breaks in the light beam that lasted
picoseconds. Basically, you couldn't hide all that much using it. Now, researchers
have taken the same general approach and used it to hide signals in a beam of
light sent through an optical fiber. When the cloak is in operation, the signals
largely disappear. In this case the cloak can hide nearly half of the total
bandwidth of the light, resulting in a hidden transmission rate of 12.7 Gigabits
per second."
