Week in Review - 25th of June

Alright so what's been going on the past week?

Before the wrap up - here is food for thought. For years I've been longing for freedom work wise but eventually business life will follow. The 8 hour sign in and out day is waaaay outdated. What do you think?



SpaceX Just Transformed Space Flight, Launching Two Rockets in 48 Hours. Seriously, a pivotal moment.

This week NASA found 10 earth-sized planets and there are rumours on that they are soon to be revealing some alien news. Can't fucking wait.



#biotech #CRISPR

We're all scared of the antibiotics resistance but a solution is near with the CRISPR technology.
Several companies have used CRISPR to engineer phages to attack and kill antibiotic resistant bacteria. Human trail starts within 18 months!



10 Science Mysteries Waiting to Be Solved 
Enjoy science? Like to contribute to history? Try wrapping your head around these ones.


Omg Too fascinating, came across this dinosaurs robot this week. Its 8 months old, imagine how much better it has become since this. wow, now I wanna go to that park.



Repaint and BOOM your house is a power station with this awesome solar paint.



China's central bank has developed its own cryptocurrency, which is now being tested. Cryptocurrencies have the potential to not only benefit China, but the rest of the world, due to their basis in blockchain.

Google is Closer Than Ever to a Quantum Computer Breakthrough oooohh yeah. Game changer about to happen.
Google is on schedule to achieve quantum supremacy by the end of 2017. 


And flying cars are now a thing. Give it a year and it'll soon be on its way for trial. 


Week in Review - 4th of June

The world is bananas, even though we live in one of the best times in history and loads of great things are happening, there still is some crazy shit going on. There is always someone who just wants to mess up. Another terrorist attack happened Saturday evening in London... wtf? Just ten days has gone by since the Manchester attack (btw tonight there is the memorial concert with Bieber etc..) 7 dead and 48 wounded. I guess ISIS soon will claim the attack. Gooood, seriously. Wtf. As I write this I'm watching the memorial concert Arianna Grande put together. She is a great girl, going back to Manchester and bringing top pop artists with her, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharell Williams etc. Its a beautiful concert full of love.
Not only that but this week Trump just decided to pull out of the Paris Agreement. Seriously, I have to laugh.. Out.. LOUD. At least Elon Musk made it clear that he no longer wants to be seen in the white house no more.. 

So what else exciting has happened?



NASA’s First Mission to Touch the Sun Launches in 2018
Parker Solar Probe will be sent into the corona of the sun, NASA hopes to get some answers on why the corona, the top layer of the sun's gaseous atmosphere (visible only during a solar eclipse), hotter than its surface?



This is so inspiring and should definitely considered asap from other world leaders too.
India will only sell electric cars by 2030!

Poor air quality kills 1.2 million people in India every year, so clearly they finally had to do something.



These Color-Changing Tattoos Monitor Your Health, No Wearable Needed

A ban on human/animal genetic hybrids was just lifted. What if an animal is born with humanlike consciousness and intelligence? Wont let that happen will we?


The worlds smallest hard drive is a single atom..!



Is it time to redefine work yet!?

A new internet is already on its way

When will we be able to manipulate matter?

Week In Review - May 14th

Week 3 of Office X is over. 7 more to go. Damn, time flies. I've had one of the best weeks in a while. Office X pluss reconnecting with the startup community. That San Francisco feeling entered my body and stuck for a bit. It's about to slowly fade but.. It was there! Times them are a-changing here in the smallest of Oslo.

So here is the wrap of what I've got across this week :)


This is why you want a robot coworker - watch the movie below.


Uber is set to deploy flying taxis in Dallas-Fort Worth and Dubai by 2020 :D

The new ET3's tube transportation concept, which is called the "mag-lev limo." would be capable of traveling from New York to Beijing in 2 hours. Amaziiiiing.
“ET3: we call it a mag-lev limo, where it’s a car-sized vehicle that operates in a network of tubes much [like] cars on a freeway,” Oster told TechRepublic at the 2017 Smart Cincy Summit. “But, it would be international and global in scope.Our vision is being able to travel from, say, here in Cincinnati to the Taj Mahal in under three hours for 50 bucks,” Oster added. Essentially, it’s a network of tubes that serve as a “freeway” which can be accessed via various points along its many routes."

Meet Horizon Public Transport, another way to be transported in the future. Whoho!

Cars with Ears
A sense of hearing is set to make cars safer and more reliable.
Startup OtoSense makes software that can listen for sirens or engine trouble.


Perhaps our telomers might the key to unlock immortality. 


Elon Musk: Tesla's Solar Roofs Will Be Cheaper Than Regular Roofs and Have "Infinity Warranty". Well isn't that aaaamazing news!
This week, Elon Musk announced that Tesla's solar roofs would be on sale starting now!

Germany breaks a record for renewable energy, generating 85% of its power from renewable sources on April 30.The country expects such days to become the norm as it continues its push toward clean energy adoption.


Omg I cant wait for the time where its normal not to own anything and if you need something you just print it on demand. Perhaps its usual to have your own 3Dprinter or you'll find one pretty close through an sharing economy app.
Well, the first awesome one is about to enter the market. Kniterate. Check out their kickstarter campaign here.


Bill Gates has 7 predictions for the future

Week in Review - April 16th

Happy Easter Folks!

I hope you've had a good one. That Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Eve and the days following treated you good and you've gotten the rest you were longing for and that you've eaten bunch of chocolates and eggs.
Since I'm not a christian easter to me is simply associated with time off and candy. And yeh.. next to the white snowy mountains and them never ending cross country hiking trips which I in fact still carry trauma from. This easter was rather tragic due to my infection but I got some time to recover and get ready for the new project I'm about to enter.
I was alone this whole week and it got me thinking that the people whom already feel lonely must feel worse in easter, all isolated and lonesome just like christmas. I wish I had a big house and could invite lots of people for a big party, then I do not mean friends but friends I don't yet know, the people who might feel extra lonely. Thats a goal at some point in my life. Be able to open up my home at christmas, easter and thanksgiving. 

Want an easter fun fact? Norwegians eat the double amount of eggs in easter than what we normally do. Actually 4,6 million eggs everyday and 30 million in total. 5 million people and we eat so much during a week... Insane? I don't eat eggs at all, so there must be some people out there that eats aaaa lot. 
Another thing I find funny is that basically Jesus "dies" on different dates every year. That should not make sense for deeply religious people? Should it?

Also notable to mention; It was Leonardo Da Vincis birthday yesterday, 15th of April. One of my all time idols because of his polymathic and creative personality. He was just a true genius, next to Nikola Tesla of course.
An additional fun fact to that, the Titanic sank that day too.. what a date. 

What did you do this easter ? 

Well, to the point, my weekly week in review, which I missed last Sunday due to my feverish body and mental state..

PS: If there is one thing you should do week it is to join in 22nd of April and march for science with the rest of the world! There will be a march in about every big city, I'm sure you care for the planet, the people you love and yourself, so then this is definitely worth marching for or at least give it a kind thought. I recently wrote a blogpost on this, check it out here if you like.


At NASAs press conference this Thursday they revealed the findings of that Saturns Moon has the ingredients necessary for a habitable environment, the organic chemicals—carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur—which are the basic building blocks of life. Perhaps this is our next stop after Mars?

We will be able to build rockets going in the speed of light or 99,9999 %, science shows, sadly it won't happen yet, we have to wait for AI to be supersmart to make it a reality. A professor has proposed a mathematical theory that could allow us to one day build a photon rocket that can reach at 99.999 percent of the speed of light. 

The space elevator(yes you heard me!)which you see below in this video is to be built by the Chinese company, Obayashi Corporation within 2050. Exciting! Perhaps every country will have one like this in a hundred of years, to have an easy way to enter space and also grow our food there. What do you think?



Canada just did a genius move, which I wish all countries did just right away.

Last week a non-profit Vector Institute launched designed to accelerate research and commercialization of AI and machine learning technology. The federal and provincial governments have pledged 150 million Canadian dollars (about $110 million), and a group of 31 corporate donors will also support the hub’s work over the next 10 years.


One single drop of blod can now detect several types of cancer. Accurate rate 71-96 %.




Here is a cool company, Waterseer.  This turbine allow you to condense water directly from thin air. Give this to everyone please and also a charity water drill. Watch the video below.



Have a look at how our kitchen and food habits will look like in 2025 and beyond. 
3D printing, robot chefs, foods form space and best of all nooo more killing innocent animals!



Electronic Jets may soon be an option.

Elon Musk just announced that a Semi Truck in the making and will be released this September He mentioned that a convertible roadster and a pickup truck that will be on market in just 18 to 24 months.

Musk also announced the released date of Tesla Model 3. It's 3rd of July folks! I guess load of Norwegians signed up already. We buy a lot because we get it cheaper than the actual prize. The government sponsor us. Beat that! So number 1 car to buy here.



Scientists Hacked a Cell’s DNA and Made a Biocomputer Out of It.
Our brains are often compared to computers, but in truth, the billions of cells in our bodies may be a better analogy.



Electrodes for Your Face Bring Your Emotions to Augmented and Virtual Reality
We want it to become as real as possible, and when it is, we won't be able to distinguish it, so now we got a step closer with mapping the face. This tracking makes it easier for users to express emotions and and interact with each other.



Revolutionary ? Yes indeed. These robots are sorting 200,000 packages, operating 24/7. Humans.. beat that!?



Google released a new AI, AutoDraw this week. What a relief! The tool uses machine learning to guess what you’re trying to draw and then gives you the option to replace your bad drawing with more polished ones. Now everyone can easily and quickly draw understandable drawings.
Good for powerpoint and visual explaining youtube videos.
Google also launched Areo in India this week which seems very handy.
