In the final frontier of the mind au naturel, we are now seeing the initial signs of brain augmenting. That’s right. Nootropics, or “smart-drugs,” are a new group of cognitive enhancing supplements which can improve an individual’s working memory, motivation, or focus. Humans are always trying to be a better version of themselves. And in the latest attempt to self-improvement, the population of this world is now turning towards “smart-drugs”. You’ve likely seen these substances in fictional movies like ‘Limitless’ where Bradley Cooper’s character takes a pill and his focus goes from zero to 100 in a matter of seconds. Well, nootropics available in real life don’t have that strong of a reaction, but the concept is similar. Here's a video by Practical Psychology explaining what are Noo

 A project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars, the next giant leap for mankind.   When President Richard Nixon told the world that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had landed on the moon, 49 years ago on 20th July 1969, that moment gave humanity hope that anything is possible. Establishing a human colony on the red planet used to be a far-fetched dream. Well, not anymore. Soon, our species will be heading to the deserted planet and will call it their home. Thanks to legends like Elon Musk, and Mars One organisation who have plans to launch humankind into the universe and seed a permanent community. Why should we do this?

Researchers at Cornell designed a robot capable of making its own decisions. If you need to grab a beer off the shelf from Tesco, what do you do? Maybe you reach your arm up and grab the lager, or perhaps you need a bit of a booster, so you adjust your height by standing on your tip toes. Without thinking, you make a decision on how to solve the problem facing you, even if it requires some adjustment on your behalf. Now, for the first time, robots can do the same. Scientists at Cornell University have developed a self-configuring modular robot — a robot capable of reassembling itself from its different parts and  making its own decisions when faced with tasks in different environments.   Researchers built a library into the robot, giving it 57 different types of way
