Is blockchain the most secure communications strategy for teams of robots?

Could energy from Wi-Fi signals be turned into electricity that could power electronics?

Device made from flexible, inexpensive materials could power large-area electronics, wearables, medical devices, and more. Imagine a world where smartphones, laptops, wearables, and other electronics are powered without batteries. Researchers from MIT and elsewhere have taken a step in that direction, with the first fully flexible device that can convert energy from Wi-Fi signals into

Forget GDP And Start Measuring Inclusive Wealth

The Inclusive Wealth Indicator India and Brazil have had explosive growth over the last decade. Or have they? A new measurement of the true wealth of nations finds that what countries give up for a rise in GDP may be incredibly costly. Brazil and India have paid dearly for their rapid economic growth. By conventional
