First Human Head Transplantation Surgery
A man set to become the world’s first head transplant patient has scheduled the procedure for December 2017. Russian computer scientist Valery Spiridonov, 30, was diagnosed with a genetic muscle-wasting condition called Werdnig-Hoffmann disease, and volunteered for the procedure despite the risks involved, Central European News (CEN) reported.
Apple's autonomous 'Titan' cars start invading world roads in order to go head to head with Tesla's electric vehicles
According to Tim Higgins from Bloomberg, automakers 'typically spend five to seven years developing a car'. And a 2020 timeframe would underscore Apple's 'aggressive goals and could set the stage for a battle for customers with Tesla Motors Inc and General Motors Co.' Both of those are planning to release a sub-£26,000 ($40,000) electric car in 2017 that can travel more than 200 miles (320km) on a single charge.
European cars automatically call emergency services after a crash via the eCall system
The system, known as eCall, automatically contacts emergency services in the event of a crash, as determined by in-car sensors, such as those triggering the vehicle’s airbags. eCall establishes an audio connection with emergency operators and automatically transmits basic data including the vehicle's type, location, and the time of the crash. Passengers and witnesses will also be able to activate eCall manually by pressing an in-car button.
Player One is Ready to seek the next Halliday’s clue in the theaters
Ready Player One marks a return to Warner Bros. for Spielberg, who directed the studio’s Empire of the Sun, The Color Purple and A.I. Artificial Intelligence, in addition to producing the hits Gremlins and The Goonies. “Any film from Steven Spielberg is an event film”, Fellman stated. Sue Kroll added, “From the success of the book, ‘Ready Player One’ already has a devoted following, and we’re excited for its fans everywhere to see this fantastically innovative story come to life."
Magic Leap is bringing the fun and video games to the world you’re already in
As I see crisply rendered images of monsters, robots, and cadaver heads in Magic Leap’s offices, I can envision someday having a video chat with faraway family members who look as if they’re actually sitting in my living room while, on their end, I appear to be sitting in theirs. Or walking around New York City with a virtual tour guide, the sides of buildings overlaid with images that reveal how the structures looked in the past. Or watching movies where the characters appear to be right in front of me, letting me follow them around as the plot unfolds. But no one really knows what Magic Leap might be best for.
Medical Prediction: Immunotherapy replaces chemotherapy as the standard cancer treatment
Prof Roy Herbst, chief of medical oncology at Yale Cancer Centre in the US, said the treatment, which uses the body’s immune system to attack cancerous cells, could potentially replace chemotherapy as the standard cancer treatment within five years. In an international trial, 945 patients with advanced melanoma were treated using the drugs ipilimumab and nivolumab. The treatments stopped cancer advancing for nearly a year in 58% of cases, with tumours stable or shrinking for an average of 11.5 months, researchers found.
First patient with Degenerative Retinal Disease is cured by The Optogenetics Gene Therapy
The optogenetics approach that Pan and Dizhoor are studying circumvents the missing photoreceptors. That means it differs from traditional gene therapy in important ways: It doesn’t fix broken genes, so the therapy should work regardless of which of the 250 genes are causing problems. And instead of trying to resurrect dead or damaged photoreceptors, the scientists aim to transform relay cells into ersatz photoreceptors.
Tesla's Gigafactory produces the same number of lithium-ion batteries as the entire world’s output in 2013
Projected figures from Tesla show the gigantic factory producing 500,000 units per year by 2020, with expected battery cell output of 35 GWh/yr and battery pack output figures of 50 GWh/yr. Current global battery output, from a variety of manufacturers, sits at just under 35 GWh/yr. Tesla reports that by the end of its first full production year, the Gigafactory could reduce the cost per kWh of a battery pack by around a third.
Volvo unleash talking to each other, self-driving cars on Swedish roads
Volvo Cars' Drive Me pilot program will push autonomous driving a step closer to reality by putting 100 self-driving XC90 crossovers on Swedish streets. In the pilot project the road friction information from individual cars is shared within a cloud-based system. When the test car detects an icy or slippery road patch, the information is relayed via Volvo Cars' database to other vehicles approaching the slippery area.
The first 700 Airbus Group satellites are launched into orbit to provide the OneWeb high-speed, space-based Internet access
Bankrolled in part by Richard Branson's Virgin Group and chipmaker Qualcomm Inc, the project will cost between $1.5 billion and $2 billion. Airbus Defense and Space will build the first 10 spacecraft at its Toulouse, France, facility, before shifting production to an undisclosed site in the USA. Several other companies were vying for the spacecraft contract, including Thales Alenia Space, Space Systems/Loral, Lockheed Martin Corp's Space Systems and OHB of Germany.
