BioInteractive Materials, Biofuel Production Plants, Bionics, Cognitronics, Genotyping, Combinatorial Science, Combinatorial Science, Quantum Nucleonics...
Sounds like dialogs from next StarWars episode? Actually these are more realistic day-to-day science, described as Technologies that will change the world!! :roll:
Full article: Eight Techologies That Will Change the World
Of the eight, my favourite is (and may be most realistic of all) is Cognitronics.
Which one of these technologies you think will be of maximum use to us all?

We had a go at producing this 'circle' thing a while ago, but marketing couldn't decide what color it should be.

In the long run, people would find out that atomic/nuclear technology didnt change the world one bit!
Einstein had this to say.

Albert Einstein died on April 18, 1955. Einstein left behind more than perhaps anyone ever has. Many today are still exploring the theories that were proposed by this great philosopher. "I don't know what kind of weapons will be used in the third world war, assuming there will be a third world war. But I can tell you what the fourth world war will be fought with - stone clubs."

This just reminded me of the movie "The Hundsucker Proxy."
"You know, for kids!"
