For a little while now, people have been hacking their own brains with something called tDCS, or electrodes on the scalp, trying to enhance their mood and mental functioning.
-But the potentially-dangerous bro-science practice has had spotty results, until now.
Because a company called
Thync has pooled a team of experts to change all that.
When their engineers & doctors looked at all the different effects and the conflicting studies surrounding the noggin-zaps, from improvements on…
-Except this time, it just might work.
Everyone’s done this type of amateur Sherlock Holmes evaluation since they were born. But now, at the intersection of a facial-recognition technologist, a doctor, and Big Data,
the studies might just prove both true and useful.
What Face My Age’s technology does…
VIDEO And as a great companion video to the Vsauce post, ASAPScience asks if we can improve not our Strength or Speed, but our Intelligence through genetic means, and what people are already doing about it.
The core of their idea is based on The Cognitive Genomics Project, Big Data & Gene Therapy…
VIDEO In this video, VSauce gets into the DNA-Techy meat of the most serious self-improvement question imaginable:
Forget the Deepak Chopra Aisle at the Barnes & Noble, -Can we make ourselves better or even Superhuman by using genetic alterations like in the game BioShock?
Well, the Michael Stevens-less host Jake Roper goes on with a little help from ASAPScience to ask those questions and find the supporting research on things like Speed, Strength and Smarts.
Typical Vsauce kookiness, and Worth a watch…
Awhile back, we told you about the amazing 3D-Printed bones designed by Dr. Susmita Bose.
Since then, there’s been another development that will add to the final consumer product, just like the 3D-Blueprinting side we saw from
the guys who put the motorcyclist back together.
–What Dr. Richard Oreffo’s team did was to research all different kinds of Materials, Composites, Plastics, Minerals and many different kinds of Shapes & Layouts. -And they arrived at something really interesting…
VIDEO So I guess the old guys kicking around back 1,000+ years ago weren’t so dumb after-all.
First Plato, Seneca, Pythagoras, DaVinci, Hasselhoff, and now a guy named Bald. -Who wrote something called a Leechbook. One of the earliest medical textbooks known.
I know, I know, whenever you hear about old remedies you think of alchemy, bloodletting, witches &
Monty-Python. -But not so fast…
Somehow the wizards at Merck or their original researchers like CSL Ltd. have made the already-impressive Gardasil even more effective.
The new Gardasil-9 protects against even more strains of HPV than before.
The old vaccine protected against 4 varieties & had a 97% prevention rate. And those 4 strains covered 70% of all potentially-lethal HPV.
Mystifyingly, even though it covers more than twice as many strains,…
