Hurricane Buster, Cellulite Patches, 100 Xs Faster WiFi
Scientists Steer Hurricanes
Aircraft would drop soot into the near-freezing cloud at the top of a hurricane, causing it to warm up and so reduce wind speeds.
Computer simulations of the forces at work in the most violent storms have shown that even small changes can affect their paths – enabling them to be diverted from major cities.
Cellulite can be reduced by injecting infected areas with collagenase, an enzyme that digests collagen. The treatment can be given either by injection or by applying patches every 4 to 6 weeks.
100 Times Faster Than WiFi
IBM Research and MediaTek are teaming up to develop a wireless transmission protocol that will deliver files more than 100 times faster than WiFi.
