    What’s about mechanical heart implanting breakthrough (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/france/10532427/France-implants-its-first-artificial-heart.html), +5 extra years for longevity just for 180 000 EUR.

    How about this? A LENR boiler that can be used to swap out conventional coal-fired boilers at power plants? Using this technology hydrogen is 5 orders of magnitude more energy dense as fossil fuel, plus clean (i.e. no radioactive material in or out).

    Or how about this? A compound that actually reverses aging in mice, set for human trails in 2014. This is probably the first of many low hanging fruit in our quest for radical life extension.

      Brillouin may make a surpise, but two other competitors will sure be present in 2014.

      Andrea Rossi and his e-cat announce that the Elforsk report on the second round of independent testing should be ready in March.
      Defkalion, just announced they finished their R&D phase, and were comissioning a new reactor… news end of January they say… I wait.. but they are often late.

      some see Chinese connections…
      Japanese corps (Toyota, Mitsubishi) may also cause surprise, since Cold fusion never died in asia.

      for those interested in knowing what is happening in the domain, with a business perpective I have done that executive summary
      http://www.lenrnews.eu/lenr-summary-for-policy-makers/

      You can also read the site of LENR for the win , and the question “are LENR devices real”? It is cited in my exec summary.

      if you are still unsure cold fusion is real, you may find many reference in my exec summary, but the best is clearly the book (published as PDF for ICCF9, but best is to buy a copy on amazon) of Charles Beaudette “Excess Heat”
      http://iccf9.global.tsinghua.edu.cn/lenr%20home%20page/acrobat/BeaudetteCexcessheat.pdf

      the best book to rule out the myth.

    Even with google’s robotics acquisitions, they still don’t have consciousness. This is because even mighty Google still believes that language is symbolic, that the brain has representations and does computations, and that perception and action are separate processes.
    This short-sightedness of Google presents huge opportunities for more innovative companies.

      Well, Kurzweil’s site has this shocking novel on convergence of singularity, AI and transhumanism – The Bequeathal: Godsent. It’s concepts are so fresh that I’m sure Google (Ray is one of their directors or something) will get plenty ideas.
