China syncs monkey brain with a computer in a ‘world first’ experiment
Interventional BCI connects the brain to the computer by minimally invasive surgery, much like a heart stent, and harms people’s bodies less than invasive technology while providing better EEG quality than non-invasive technology.
The Future Of Data Storage Lies In DNA Microcapsules
Data won’t be stored as zeros and ones in a hard drive but in the base pairs that make up DNA: AT and CG

Researchers discover new method to collect water from humidity using organic crystals
They discovered a new mechanism by which humidity from air can be collected on the surface of an organic crystal, and the resulting water can move across that surface due to a combination of physical processes.
