Generating Electricity From Microbes

These days we can generate electricity from just about anything. All energy can be converted to electricity, and now, even the tiny bit of energy that is generated when viruses crawl. Quite amazing, and technologies like these will definitely be a big part of our future.

Imagine your phone charging itself just from the friction in your pocket. We can easily make this, so why don’t we?


Did You Know The ESA Plans To 3D Print a Moon Base

3d printed moon baseSo we can 3D print regular sized things, and really, really small things. What about huge things?
Soon enough. The European Space Agency plans to 3D print a whole building, and on the moon.

Certainly it will take some time, and they didnt announce a set date. But imagine what 3D printing technology can do for space workers. No more need to send a $8M rocket to replace a broken tool.

The Yeti Robot, Currently Inspecting The South Pole
