A new way to see fashion

A6D74EC5-23BB-434B-91A1-A7F15B5B7D60

Augmented reality start-up, HoloMe, has created a holographic version of the catwalk show which can appear anywhere, including in the street. A hologram is a photographic recording of a light field, rather than of an image formed by a lens, and it’s used to display a fully three-dimensional image of the holographed subject against any background. Models wearing fashion from the new British brand RIXO were captured in augmented reality using HoloMe’s software solution, which automatically processes visual inputs for the creation of high quality, life-like holograms which you can see on your smartphone, providing you with a front row seat to your own personal fashion show, on demand. http://holome.co.uk/

A tree that has the environmental benefits of a small forest

smart tree (1)

Created by start-up Green City Solutions, CityTrees are covered in moss and lichens which have a massive surface area that can absorb particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone. The trees’ inventors estimate that a single structure has the environmental benefits of 275 urban trees, but taking up 99% less space and at just 5% of the cost. So far, CityTrees have been rolled out in several cities in countries including Norway, France, Germany, Belgium, Macedonia and Hong Kong. The cost for each tree can be mitigated by the potential for advertising on them. https://greencitysolutions.de/en/

Apple Pay users can already make merchant payments. As an extension of this service iPhone users will be able to transact with any other iPhone user to make payments, receive payments, and use the card associated with their Apple Pay Cash account as a store of value.

A nuclear reactor that uses waste uranium

B767FE10-B4BB-4BE4-9610-4E17F166EA87

Bill Gates’ nuclear firm TerraPower and the China National Nuclear Corporation have signed an agreement to develop a world-first nuclear reactor, using other nuclear reactors’ waste. Fourth generation Travelling Wave Reactors would differ from third generation, more traditional light water nuclear reactors, as they would not require enriched uranium to generate energy, and could instead use waste uranium. The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is part of the Generation IV International Forum Framework which they call “a potential game-changer in global energy creation”. http://www.smh.com.au/business/energy/bill-gates-and-china-partner-on-worldfirst-nuclear-technology-20171106-gzfrf0
