DailyDirt: Science That's Almost Indistinguishable From Magic

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Technology must really be getting better because Arthur C. Clarke’s quote that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” seems to apply to more and more discoveries. Here are just a few examples of some pretty cool science that is real — but not so easily explained.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Re: All Those Who Think There Is Such A Thing As Non-Magical Technology ...

There’s a little wire-type thingy inside the bulb, and when electricity goes through it, it gets so hot that it glows.
That’s for old-style lightbulbs anyway. I think the new ones work the same way, except with some kind of gas instead of a wire.

I think that we are barely scratching the surface of what nature has to offer. We can do things know that only a few years ago were deemed impossible, and if things carry on who knows what we will be able to do in 10, 20 years to come? We will probably use these new discoveries to the good like develope a Brand New kind of dirty bomb!! Or find new ways to keep in touch with people that we dont want to keep in touch with 🙂
