Transhumanism is a scientific philosophy that says technology will solve all our human biological constraints and that immortality is right around the corner (well not RIGHT around the corner, but WAYYY closer). They envision a world of endlessly euphoric robo-humans that represent the next step in evolution. And while this sounds super awesome, we had to ask, will this really make us happy?! If you watch Futurama, than you know that the answer is probably NO. While not an exact illustration of transhumanism, Futurama does show a future of vast technological ability, where today’s everyday problems are rendered moot, and yet the characters on the show still seem to find themselves in some very non-euphoric emotional states. Does this disprove what transhumanists expect for our future?

Fabric is made by weaving fibers into cloth – which is then sewn into the shirts and pants that you wear every day. Now, at the Army research lab in Natick, Mass., research chemist Kris Senecal is investigating ways to use the tiniest of fibers – called nanofibers – to help people stay healthy. Each nanofiber is 50 times finer than a strand of spider silk. Scientists can combine these nanofiber webs, or mats, with antibodies that will capture germs and bacteria that could make people sick. But that’s not all these scientists are dreaming about, Kris says. “I would like to see textiles that you could actually have fun with” – maybe using them with electronics so people can plug their MP3 players into their shirts, for example. “It’s just thinking out of the box.” Video Rating: 4 / 5
“The Indigo Evolution” is a documentary that attempts to answer the question – Are these ‘Indigos’ only the fanciful notions of a few individuals embracing new-age, metaphysical beliefs, or is there real evidence that they truly do exist? Most importantly, why are they here and how can we help them achieve their goal of creating a world based upon the laws of compassion and peace? Interviews with some of the most profound children on the planet today combined with discussions with authorities in the fields of medicine, psychology, education, philosophy, and religion will provide information for the viewer to draw their own conclusions to these questions. ‘The Indigo Evolution’ is a documentary about the shifting human, evolving beyond the five sensory perceptions into a multi-sensory being of light ! The term Indigo refers to the Indigo color Aura seen around certain individuals who exhibit certain enhanced abilities well beyond their age and learning. Commonly labeled as suffering from some kind of deficit (ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia …) these children clearly have more of something most of us fail to recognize. Their non conformance to authority and the social conditioning sometimes earns them the label of being problem children. Indigo Evolution, a feature-length documentary by James Twyman, was released Jan. 28, 2006 in more than 350 churches and wellness and spiritual centers around the world. The attendance far exceeded expectations, demonstrating how interest in … Video Rating: 4 / 5

Of the many objects that orbit the Sun, most of the mass is contained within eight relatively solitary planets whose orbits are almost circular and lie within a nearly flat disc called the ecliptic plane. The four outer planets, the gas giants, are substantially more massive than the terrestrials. The two largest, Jupiter and Saturn, are composed mainly of hydrogen and helium; the two outermost planets, Uranus and Neptune, are composed largely of ices, such as water, ammonia and methane, and are often referred to separately as “ice giants”.

Guests with visual disabilities are able to explore Walt Disney World theme parks through an enhanced Disney-designed device that provides detailed audio description of outdoor areas. Via an interactive audio menu, the newly enhanced Assistive Technology Device lets guests choose the type of information they would like to receive about outdoor areas, from architectural elements to the location of the nearest restroom. The Handheld Assistive Device is offered at no cost with a refundable deposit. Kid reporter Mindy Strater interviews Greg Johnson, technology coordinator for the Assistive Technology device; Larry Goldberg, director of Media Access Group at WGBH in Boston; and Jeanie, a visually impaired guest at Walt Disney World.

Have you ever wondered how individuals with disabilities can be just as productive as their sighted counterparts? Wouldn’t it be great if you could hear from folks whose lives have been impacted greatly by the use of assistive technology? Easter Seals Crossroads, in collaboration with Fusework Studios, presents Like I Can. Its purpose is to showcase how people from all walks of life are just as successful as their sighted peers. A blind college student, for example, is able to easily take and review notes using a portable PDA equipped with speech and Braille capabilities. A woman can operate her small business with no assistance. Watch, be inspired, take action! Video Rating: 5 / 5
