Amazing Technology.

Few years ago Watson computer from IBM has beaten best humans in Jeopardy game. Today another computer, this time from Google, Alphago beats the best human player of Chinese game Go. Supposedly the most difficult game ever. Score 4 to 1 for Alphago. Google says it is not much about a supercomputer, but more about very clever software. Smart software which can learn from every played game.

Flyboard! Is this how we are going to travel soon?

Coolest personal flying technology.

Or just fun new sport?
I'm going to love this one. These are augmented reality glasses by Microsoft, Hololens. Have a look...

I think they are still in Beta testing and cost a little fortune of 10,000 USD. But hey, most of us should have it or similar devices in few years. Less cumbersome and less geeky too. We no longer will need computer screen. Put your augmented reality glasses on and you can see as many screens, applications open or documents displayed around you as you need. You no longer need a laptop or pc because the glasses is your computer and your phone, with voice communication.
You can put your glasses on and go fix your car, as you can see your car and tutorial at the same time. Put glasses on and watch a game, and you will feel like sitting at the stadium. Sit on exercise bike with your glasses and it will seem like riding through a countryside, or riding streets of historic cities. Countless possibilities. It will be a paradigm shift, like personal computer and smart phones were.
Other cool uses and competitors.
Not only we can edit genetic code at will these days, for the first time we can actually see it being edited.

CRISPR is a powerful gene-editing tool that allows researchers to cut and paste snippets of DNA to make targeted changes to a living organism’s genome. It’s a method that’s fast and easy, and it has ushered in a new era of customized life.
Scientists have used the technique to breed mosquitoes that resistant to the malaria virus, develop treatments for muscular dystrophy, grow pig organssuitable for humans, cure blindness and invent new drugs—all this without ever actually seeing it in action.
But that all changed thanks to Japanese researcher Osamu Nureki, who, along with his colleagues, recorded video of CRISPR chopping a strand of DNA into two pieces. Nureki debuted the video in June before a crowd of scientists gathered for a conference in Big Sky, Montana. Scientists tend to mute their emotions when it comes to scrutinizing results in their field of study, but when Nureki hit play, gasps rippled through the crowd.
