New laser zaps mosquitoes - prevents malaria
"Seriously, is there anything a laser can't
do? A team of mad scientists in Washington have concocted a system that
could essentially eliminate malaria-carrying mosquitoes with lasers,
and the whole thing can be built from parts sourced on eBay. The
so-called mosquito laser is credited to an idea from Lowell Wood, an
astrophysicist who worked with Edward Teller, the "architect of the
original plan to use lasers to shield America from the rain of Soviet
nuclear arms." In theory, at least, the technology could one day be used
to draw a laser barrier of sorts around a village. Of course, the trick
is to make the lasers powerful enough to smoke the bugs without harming

Mind-Controlled Quadcopter in China
..By wearing an EEG (emotiv electroencephalography) headset, Zhejiang University’s researchers claim they can pilot a quadcopter by thinking “left hard” to take off or land, “left” to rotate the quadcopter clockwise, “right” to fly forward and “push” to fly up.
A user who clenches while wearing the headset will steer the quadcopter downward, while blinking will shoot photos from the on-drone camera. The EEG headset sends commands via Bluetooth to a laptop, which then sends them to the quadcopter by way of a Wi-Fi connection. The quadcopter also streams its view back to the laptop over Wi-Fi, to give its pilots a better view and more precise control.
The system, dubbed Flying Buddy 2, was designed with disabled users in mind, ideally to give people with impaired motor skills a new way to interact with the world around them.. source:http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/08/zhejiang-university-china-brain-controlled-quadcopter/
Researchers: "Maybe one day in the future, disabled people can use brain to drive a plane in which they are seated, and go anywhere they want to go,"http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/onepercent/2012/08/thought-controlled-quadcopter.html

Cooking simulator will help you cook a perfect steak every time.
Lacking the skills to cook up anything but the most basic of meals, my kitchen-novice brethren and I might ultimately benefit from the cooking simulator being developed by researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
This cooking simulator, being developed by a research group at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, features a force feedback fry pan and spatula to accurately recreate the sense of cooking.
