Here are just three of the bazillion mind-bending technological advances underway right now:
I don’t mean $5,000. This 5G is the next wireless network generation. Of course, it’s faster, smarter, etc.
“CSS Insights predicts 1 billion people will be using 5G connections by 2023, with China accounting for half of all 5G users as early as 2022.”
“The creation and subsequent adoption of 5G is seemingly inevitable, and like 4G, it will eventually become the leading mobile connection. That said, when the next generation of mobile technology arrives, it won’t be the U.S. or Japan leading the world in 5G users. It will be China.”
“The mobile industry analysts predict that 1 billion people will be using 5G connections by 2023, with China accounting for more than half of all 5G users as early as 2022. The country is expected to maintain a sizable hold until 2025, when it may still represent 40 percent of global 5G connections.”
Here’s the story… I guess… as of this moment.
Precision Autonomous Flight Without GPS
Yes, flying without GPS and still not running into assorted obstacles, is possible. Some really smart people have ciphered it all out.
A Breath of Air to Help Power the Grid

I breathe. You breathe. We all breathe together… now, so do our batteries.
Why? Because the MIT-developed “air-breathing” battery could “store electricity for very long durations for about one-fifth the cost of current technologies, with minimal location restraints and zero emissions.”
Of course, I knew that!!
O.K. Really, I didn’t.
But the MIT-really-really-smart people figured it all out.
