Eating food could be replaced by nanorobot nutrient delivery system.


By early 2030s, experts predict nanorobots will be developed to improve the human digestive system, and by 2040, as radical as this sounds, we could eliminate our need for food and eating.
   This is the vision of futurist Ray Kurzweil and nutritionist Terry Grossman, M.D., in their popular book, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever. In the coming decades, the authors claim, “We will be able to reengineer the way we provide nutrients to our trillions of cells.”

3D Art Meets Prosthetics: Student Creates Beautiful 3D Printed Prosthetic Arm for Friend
An architecture design student decides to make some awesome prosthetics for his friend. I love seeing this.
Most people missing limbs are, understandably, very self conscious about it. I remember a war buddy of my dad’s that had one of those hooks that also worked like pinchers. Scared the crap out of me as a kid. (It didn’t help that he once threatened to grab my nose with it. I think he was just trying to make a joke, I didn’t laugh.)
But as people create something customized and beautiful it allows them to not feel like they have to hide it. And in another 5-10 years, I’d be surprised if we didn’t see people with commercially viable, artificial limbs that are superior in many ways to the real thing.

Followers of the site on Twitter or Facebook might have already spotted this graphic. If you’re unaware of the Food Babe, or her latest crusade of misinformation regarding chemicals in Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, then this post might not make much sense, but you can at least be thankful you’ve had a facepalm-free day. If you have spotted some of the fallout of her ‘revelations’, here’s a quick image I threw together for you to show to anyone who’s unsure about the claims being bandied around.Now, I don’t even like Starbucks all that much (and confess to never having had a Pumpkin Spice Latte). I’m also all for transparency about the various substances added to food and drinks. However, spreading wilful misinformation about chemicals added to food isn’t helping matters at all in that regard - if anything, it’s only going to make manufacturers more reticent to make publicly available the ingredients in their products, for fear of the scientifically illiterate coming at them with pitchforks.References:
