We bet you’ve never even heard of these new technologies

1) Perovskite solar cells promise to be cheap, easy to install and efficient enough to power entire buildings, large or small.  Made with a compound called perovskite, they reach new areas of the light spectrum, thus producing far more energy than current solar technology.

2) Organs-on-chips allow scientists to test how drugs impact the body – without putting humans or animals at risk.  These micro-sized chips emulate how human organs work.  By injecting the chips with drugs, scientists can observe responses such as heart palpitations to predict human responses to drugs and diseases.

3) Super-smart nanosensors, tiny enough to fit inside the body could, for example, alert a doctor if a patient starts to show signs of heart failure. >-Inc.com
