A graduate from the Royal College of Art has claimed to have developed a silk leaf that could create oxygen for space travel and make the air better here on Earth. Julian Melchiorri, along with the silk lab from Tufts University, is responsible for this new idea.

Introducing the "Air Type Keyboard". It's a keyboard without keys-- currently being developed by a team of designers in Austin, Texas. Instead of buttons to push on your device, you can make any surface (even the air) your keyboard! Who needs those keys anyway? Well, hmmm...actually I do. I know how to type, but I like looking down at the keys every once in a while. Yeah, I'll admit it: I need those letters and numbers! It's a beautiful design, but I'm thinking of the pain an
