A machine that extracts carbon from the atmosphere

Climeworks is a Swiss company whose goal is to make it possible to capture CO₂ from the air for below $100 per ton. They believe that by 2030 there will be a global average price on carbon in the range of $100 to $150 a ton. Currently only a few European countries have made progress in assessing a high price on carbon however Climeworks believe more countries will price carbon. Then a company that sells a product or uses a process that creates high emissions (an airline, for instance, or a steel maker) could be required to pay carbon-removal companies $100 per metric ton or more to offset their CO₂ output. Or a government might use carbon-tax proceeds to directly pay businesses to collect and bury CO₂. www.nytimes.com/2019/02/12/magazine/climeworks-business-climate-change.html

Tests that can predict chronic conditions

Currently, most medical treatments are provided to people after the onset of disease symptoms, regardless of their genetic background. As a result, people may receive treatments too late to be effective and, in some cases, unsuitable treatments are administered. Proprietary tests developed by Advanced Genetic Diagnostics can be applied years before the development of chronic disease symptoms. Earlier treatment of high risk people could save lives. They are currently seeking investors to market their test across the globe. www.advancedgenetictests.com

Combining radio and Netflix

Spotify could build something between radio and Netflix. Like radio, Spotify can be the portal by which every consumer discovers and enjoys audio content. At the same time, Spotify seems increasingly interested in producing original, Spotify-exclusive content. If Spotify can successfully do both, it could become the default platform for both the discovery and production of original audio content. https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/6/18213743/spotify-gimlet-media-anchor-podcast-app

Zero- packaging shops avoid plastic waste

Zero-packaging shops, sometimes known as zero-waste grocery stores, allow customers to bring and refill their own containers. They offer food products (cereals, pasta, oils) and even household products (soap, dishwashing powder). You simply bring your own jars and containers and buy as little or as much as you need. These new businesses demonstrate how products can be offered without packaging. In doing so they provide both environmental and economic benefits. www.sbs.com.au/news/zero-packaging-stores-show-we-can-kick-our-plastic-addiction

Bringing life to an image

Researchers from the University of Washington and Facebook have developed a way to animate stationary characters in any image, resulting in them springing into action to sprint toward you out of the background. Most current AR applications are built for a specific image, like a billboard; this tool can identify a human silhouette, generate a 3D version of the person, and create a realistic animation for the figure to jump off the photo into the real world. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/ar-figures-walk-off-backdrop/

Unlocking value in textiles at a fibre level

BlockTexx is a fashion technology platform and marketplace for the world’s recycled textiles – an end-to-end recycling ecosystem unlocking the value of textile waste, one fabric at a time. Their idea is to change the fundamental model of the fashion industry that doesn’t consider end-of-life garments to have value – so everything that is considered either ‘waste’ or a ‘cost’… they have reimagined as a revenue opportunity, With the help of the CSIRO they have developed the S.O.F.T.® (separation of fibre technology), a process that can separate and recover the raw materials from clothing like polyester and cotton. https://www.chiefentrepreneur.qld.gov.au/stories/blocktexx

A clever way to take revenge on thieves

An engineer has designed a Apple HomePod box that is “enticing” for any thief. It’s GPS-enabled, so its journey can be tracked once it leaves his home perimeter. It records video with embedded mobile phones, no matter how the thief picked up the parcel. And, once triggered, it sprays half a kilo of glitter. To add insult to injury it includes a can of “fart spray,” programmed to automatically spray after the glitter explosion is triggered. Reactions by the thieves are captured on the video. www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/thieves-stole-a-package-from-an-engineer-so-he-created-a-trap-using-glitter-and-fart-spray-20181219-p50n57.html
