Examines the impact of emerging technologies on the innovation process by showing a range of examples. Explores the meaning of innovation and emerging technology, the innovation cycle, and what makes an innovation successful. A case study of an innovation demonstrates the innovation process. Ends with a discussion of the impacts of innovation on society, including a strong emphasis on ethical and environmental issues.
Can we stop, or even reverse global warming? Follows the work of a Nobel Prize-winning scientist on the Canadian prairies, an inventor in New York who has designed a unique synthetic tree, and a mega-project in Europe where CO2 instead of being sent skyward, is stored far out of harm's way deep beneath the seabed.
Will we be able to grow all of our fuel in the future? Uncovers a biofuel jet truck, a record-breaking flying machine, and a unique car made almost entirely of organic matter. Also, explores new ways of harvesting energy from biomass.
A great deal of today's modern technology exists due to the extensive use of the abundant chemical element, Silicon. California's Silicon Valley is where we find several of the world's most innovative and successful technology companies that touch all areas of human needs. Two of these companies, SunTech and Complete Genomics, are on the forefront of the innovative use of computing technology. Through their groundbreaking methods and designs they have harnessed the computing power of the Silicon Valley and applied it to creating more efficient and effective solar power generators as well as cost effective and highly accurate human genome mapping techniques.
Can we trust the robots of the future? Explores the world of artificial intelligence, taking us into labs and workshops where innovators teach robots to perceive, think, and move just like human beings.
Can the wind provide us with all of our power? Along with cutting-edge wind farms and new turbine designs, this production meets renegade inventor Doug Selsam as he builds the world's first flying turbine, a device that may just change our world.
In this episode, host Mo Rocca highlights the future of fast ground travel via a hyperloop and discusses a smartphone game that also provides an abs workout. Researchers and medical professionals are using a camera to help check for sun damage. Part of "The Henry Ford Innovation Nation With Mo Rocca" series.
In this episode, host Mo Rocca shows viewers the light bulb that levitates, discusses the petrol pumps that fueled the world, and reveals the best advice from past inventors. He also discusses new technological developments in pet care. Part of "The Henry Ford Innovation Nation With Mo Rocca" series.
Will robots replace humans? Revolutionary new machines are being designed and built for the workplace of tomorrow. Along with visiting robotic labs around the world, this production explores robot-human psychology and tests out an exoskeleton, a robot that you can strap on and wear.
This episode features stories on an innovative surf park in the North Wales countryside and an invention aimed at stopping police chases. Host Mo Rocca also highlights the history of flight starting with the Wright Brothers and finishing with the modern technologies of space. Part of "The Henry Ford Innovation Nation With Mo Rocca" series.
Recyclebank and Revolution Foods are two innovative companies that focus on rewarding people for taking ecological and healthy actions. These two companies are encouraging citizens to be actively engaged with good environmental and nutritional practices. The benefits created by these practices are considered "win-win-win". This means that consumers and government save money, build community, and also earn long-term health benefits.
In this episode, Pete Nelson describes his passion for building tree houses, and inventor Anthony Lenzo describes how he plans to turn a smart phone into an underwater camera. Host Mo Rocca features an architect that is creating vertical gardens on Mexico's highways, and the final story explains why the railroad world ditched stream engines for diesel. Part of "The Henry Ford Innovation Nation With Mo Rocca" series.
In this episode, Mo Rocca explores a Medical MacGyver that makes health devices from toys, train spinning, computerized Smart Shopping Carts, and soda bottle lights.
In this episode, Mo Rocca explores how teen inventors are out to stop distracted driving, and learns how Thomas Edison’s inventions are still making us look all look like slackers. Then, he explores the invasion of the drones and windmills the size of fleas that have the potential to revolutionize electric power.
Information and Communication Technologies, known as ICT's make reference to electronic devices used for specific communication purposes, for example: television, radio, Internet, cell phone, iPhone, iPod, computer and other technological innovations that are part of the information culture.
Innovative projects, software and hardware innovation, interaction between experts and amateurs, small social universe around technology where what appears distant is only a step away and where you learn something new every day; that's Campus Party. Nerdo Cavernas reveals all aspects of the fifth season of this international event held in Bogotá, Colombia.
Does the wax of a candle melt or burn? In this scientists conduct an experiment to determine what really happens when a candle is lit. They also develop a method to calculate the amount of hair on a head. Part of the House of Science Series.
The Salk Institute was selected as one of six majestic buildings across the globe that have impacted humankind. Robert Redford, who directs this segment, highlights its unique blend of monastery-like design. The Salk Institute's homage to art, science, and innovation is reflected in the interviews conducted with preeminent research scientists. Part of the "Cathedral of Culture" series.
Understanding the interatomic forces that give structure and properties to different types of solids is essential for the creation of new alloys, the development of useful polymers, and the creation of many other kinds of materials. Chemistry is not only an excellent entry point to predicting how a new material behaves but is also a continuous process of innovation and discovery. Part of the series: Chemistry: Challenges And Solutions.
Cubelets are magnetic, electronic building blocks, each with a small computer inside, that can be connected in many different ways to move around a table, follow a hand signal, turn on a light, play sounds, or do many other creative tasks. They were developed by Eric Schweikardt and his team at Modular Robotics, with support from the National Science Foundation’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. These 21st century building blocks are meant to help kids learn about the basics of robotics while boosting their confidence to solve problems.
