Beyond the promises of the future of graphene and other materials, gallium nitride, GaN, is presented as one of the most promising. The heir of silicon, called to revolutionize the next generation of transistors with implications from 5G communications to autonomous vehicles, could also have the keys to global energy savings.
The announced climate collapse raises the need to find solutions from architecture and engineering for housing that is resistant to extreme conditions, both on Earth and on other planets. From the colonization of the ocean to the reuse of past infrastructures, the proposals integrate the latest technological developments and innovative materials seeking to guarantee human survival.
Smart devices have taken our homes. Connected to our daily activities, they monitor from our rest to the pantry in order to make our lives easier. But they also expose us to cyber attacks and failures that put our privacy at risk. The so-called "Hacker toolkit" is surprisingly a great help to live safer in this hyperconnected world.
The CES, the main global technology event held in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year, brings us the most advanced devices and trends, from mobile phones to televisions, but also new gadgets designed to make life in cities healthier, safer and more sustainable.
From futuristic scenarios full of fantasy to hyper-realistic constructions, the most popular video games have also become an ideal platform to conceptualize authentic urban wonders. Able to recreate the reconstruction of Notre Dame in detail or build a colony on another planet, developers and even users test their imagination using similar tools to the ones used by architects.
