An X-ray breakthrough

The images created by the Lumitron Hyperview machines have 1000 times the resolution of a traditional X-ray. Limitron Technologies plans that its machines will be able to replace traditional X-ray and CT scanners in hospitals and identify problems such as tumours in far more detail. They would also have ultra-low radiation compared with today’s machines and theoretically be able to treat a tumour with precision radiotherapy at the same time as imaging it. https://www.afr.com/technology/aussies-lumitron-hunts-biggest-xray-breakthrough-since-1800s-with-336m-raise-20180626-h11vii

A project that bridges the generation gap

A “living library” project in Malaysia’s capital is sharing older people’s knowledge with the young, to improve the lives of retired people and bridge Kuala Lumpur’s generation gap. It links groups of students with retirement homes so older people can discuss the challenges they face living in the city and the students can offer solutions. The project is run by the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community, an international network of young professionals from business, academia and civil society, seeking to make a positive impact in local communities. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/06/kuala-lumpur-living-library-bridges-generation-gap-in-aging-asia

An automated restaurant experience

At one of Alibaba’s high-tech Hema grocery stores in Shanghai you can enjoy an automated dining experience. As you enter a quick QR code scan shows you your table and automatically notes your seat in the system for Hema’s robotic waiters. You can look at a fresh array of seafood and handpick your own ingredients, paid for in-app. A raised highway of robot pods has replaced human waitstaff with humans mostly left to the greeting and cooking. www.axios.com/alibaba-robot-restaurant-shanghai-china-automation-41348039-2540-4a42-8495-f0991db71574.html?

An art gallery that accepts cryptocurrency

Dadiani Fine Art is spearheading a revolution in the art world, becoming the first gallery in Britain to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for works of art. Buyers at the gallery in the heart of Mayfair’s traditional art district will be able to use any of the six leading cryptocurrencies on the market: Bitcoin; Ethereum; Ethereum Classic; Ripple; Litecoin; and Dash. The gallery plans to accept more altcoins as they become more widely recognised.  They are combining old world business ethics and practice with the new world of technology, believing that cryptocurrencies will provide a bridge from the elitist, centralist fine art market to a decentralised open source world. http://artdaily.com/index.asp?int_sec=11&int_new=97122&utm_content=buffereaefe&utm_medium=social&utm

An easy way to park your car

Bosch is combining its connected and automated parking solutions to create an especially convenient full-service offering.

The vehicle then automatically searches for and enters a suitable parking space. When you return, you wait for the vehicle to drive itself back to the pickup area. https://www.bosch-mobility-solutions.com/en/highlights/connected-mobility/connected-and-automated-parking/

Organs on chips to replace animal testing

Emulate uses organs-on-chips to accurately test drugs on individual, human organs. In the future, these could be your cells on a chip, tested with treatment after treatment until the right one sticks, offering personalised medicine tailored exactly to your genetic makeup. The micro-devices work by recreating the tissue interfaces of human organs inside a transparent polymer “chip”, so the behaviours of bacteria, drugs and human white blood cells can be easily monitored through a microscope. https://emulatebio.com

Order a tailored shirt online

While many people order clothes online, this is based on a process of trial and error where you try different sizes and return the unwanted ones. Original Stitch has solved this problem for shirts. Their solution, called ‘Bodygram’, involves you selecting from different styles then taking 2 photos of yourself, one front on and one side on. Bodygram then uses AI, computer vision and machine learning to develop an analysis of your required shirt sizing with almost (99%) accuracy. www.originalstitch.com

A 2 hour flight between New York and London

Imagine boarding a plane in New York and arriving in London two hours later, about 1.5 hours faster than the time it took the legendary Concorde to complete the same journey on average. Boeing recently said it hopes to develop a passenger-carrying hypersonic airliner that would reach speeds of Mach 5 (about 3,800 mph, or five times the speed of sound) within the next 30 years. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2018/06/28/flying-from-nyc-to-london-in-two-hours-is-on-the-horizon-boeing-says/?
