The top 10 emerging technologies for 2013

1Find out about the .

New challenges need new technologies to tackle them. Here, the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Emerging Technologies identifies the top 10 most promising technology trends that can help to deliver sustainable growth in decades to come as global population and material demands on the environment continue to grow rapidly. These are technologies that the Council considers have made development breakthroughs and are nearing large-scale deployment.

OnLine Electric Vehicles (OLEV)

Wireless technology can now deliver electric power to moving vehicles. In next-generation electric cars, pick-up coil sets under the vehicle floor receive power remotely via an electromagnetic field broadcast from cables installed under the road. The current also charges an onboard battery used to power the vehicle when it is out of range.3 tricity is supplied externally, these vehicles need only a fifth of the battery capacity of a standard electric car, and can achieve transmission efficiencies of over 80%. Online electric vehicles are currently undergoing road tests in Seoul, South Korea.

43-D printing and remote manufacturing

Three-dimensional printing allows the creation of solid structures from a digital computer file, potentially revolutionizing the economics of manufacturing if objects can be printed remotely in the home or office. The process involves layers of material being deposited on top of each other in to create free-standing structures from the bottom up. Blueprints from computer-aided design are sliced into cross-section for print templates, allowing virtually created objects to be used as models for “hard copies” made from plastics, metal alloys or other materials.

Self-healing materials

One of the defining characteristics of living organisms is their inherent ability to repair physical damage. A growing trend in biomimicry is the creation of non-living structural materials that also have the capacity to heal themselves when cut, torn or cracked. Self-healing materials which can repair damage without external human intervention could give manufactured goods longer lifetimes and reduce the demand for raw materials, as well as improving the inherent safety of materials used in construction or to form the bodies of aircraft.

Psychology of Hate 2 (the nitty gritty)

by My_2_cents

A review by James M. Glass of Prisoners of Hate: The Cognitive Basis of Anger, Hostility and Violence. By Aaron T. Beck, M.D. New York: HarperCollins. 1999.354 pp.
Prisoners of Hate is a well-written, comprehensive analysis of the cognitive foundations of hate, its presence in groups and individuals, its operation in society and the self, and its broader ethical and moral implications. Aaron Beck, a psychiatrist and practitioner of cognitive therapy, examined individuals and groups in action; he addresses such psychological concepts as dehumanization, demonization, and evil, and he draws parallels between the genesis of domestic violence and political violence

It is fact that DARPA has announced that it is seeking to build such a submersible drone "mothership." See the announcement straight from DARPA below.
"The Hydra program will develop and demonstrate an unmanned undersea system, providing a novel delivery mechanism for insertion of unmanned air and underwater vehicles into operational environments. Situated underwater, Hydra will use modular payloads within a standardized enclosure to enable scalable, cost-effective deployment of rapid response assets
