Here's what life might be like 100 years from now.

Life In 2116 by SmartThings

100 years from now, people will live under the ground or in the houses built with the help of a 3D printer, according to a report by company SmartThings.

According to academics, 25-floor "earth-scrapers" will represent quite a common sight due to lack of living space as we know it today. For the same reason, people will someday live under water as well.

Personal drones will be the most practical form of transport, and some even predict that people will be able to carry their houses during travel.

"Our lives today are almost unrecognisable from those a century ago. Just ten years ago, technology like SmartThings would have been inconceivable, yet today developments like this let us monitor, control and secure our living spaces with the touch of a smartphone," Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, co-author of the report for SmartThings, explained. "Over the next century we will see further seismic shifts in the way we live and interact with our surroundings," she added.

The food is also the part of the vision for the future. It will be able to be "downloaded" via the Internet and printed with the help of a 3D printer.

Instead of heading to Magaluf for your hols, we will be able to take commercial flights to space, the Samsung commissioned SmartThings Future Living Report suggests (once the Moon and Mars are colonised of course).

First Solar Panels in Washington State
First Solar Panels in Washington State

The rain-prone state of Washington in US has been a little slow in adopting the solar energy, but that is all about to change. Washington is pronouncing its first ever public lands lease for a solar farm. More than 500,000 solar panels are already scheduled for the new 150 megawatt Lund Hill project. This farm will produce solar energy that will cover both public and private lands in Klickitat County. Klickitat County is not a prime location for US solar conversion and that’s why, this is a significant development in the US solar market. It may not be the rainiest county, but it ranges far afield from other counties in optimal PV performanc

The technology of “perovskite” has been in the research circles for years now, but only until a few months back is what it is picking up the steam. The all new thin-film technology, if comes out of the laboratory phase, can actually increase the efficiency at a lower cost to solar manufacturing. What is Perovskite? Perovskite has a similar crystal structure as calcium titanium oxide (CaTiO3). The chemical formula for perovskite is ABX3, where A and B are cations and X is the bonding anion. In the new technology, lead is often the dominant metal used in perovskites.

Recently, scientists and researchers have layered different mineral forms of titanium oxide on top of one another to improve perovskite-type solar cell efficiency by 1/6th. This new discovery can transport electrons from the center of the cell to its electrodes in a better way. This new approach could be used to formulate even more efficient perovskite-type solar cells. The Novel Approach Over The Regular Solar Cells Most of the solar cells are made of silicon. These are difficult to manufacture and require vacuum chambers and temperatures above 1000 °C. Therefore, the research efforts were focused on a new type of solar cell, based on me

Ditching cash for money: what Visa is hiding from small business owners

Visa has just thrown a long shot: that of enticing small business owners to refuse cash altogether. 100% cashless, Visa claims, is more modern, safer and more efficient than traditional corner shops. The shops who accept the challenge may be rewarded, if selected, with 10 000 dollars. But experts warn the deal may be too good to be true.
