Vaporfly Shoes Doping Scandal

 

Many of us who are interested in sport, meet from with some kind od doping scandal from time to time.

Whether it was Olympics in Russia or a biker using enhancing drugs, doping is present and many of us disagree with it ultimately. This story is a little different from the others. We are in times that allow us to build, engineer, and construct such products that make us faster and stronger while using them. The most trivial examples is a technological advancement in every sports equipment we use such as bikes, skateboards, swimwear (one was banned as it was too good, but it’s a story for another paper), snowboards, skies and many more, but what those objects have in common, is that they are based on our leg movement so finally, I can say that shoes made huge progression too, why am I mentioning this all?

Well, NIKE lately introduced it’s newest product shoe product called by most people as “Nike Vaporfly” that by many are called as best running shoe. It is so good that many sports enthusiasts and officials have big concerns over it. It is made out of super spongy foam, carbon fiber part inside of the shoe, plus the combination of design, supposedly gives an unfair advantage for those who don’t wear it and statistics speak for themself, as 5 new running world record was established by Olympians that were wearing the shoe after it was released almost day after day. How does these shoes work exactly, we don’t know specifically yet, but a question rises to my mind. Should we stop the technological advancement of clothing companies just for the sake of the sport and so-called “fairness”, how will we regulate those things from happening, and on what standard should we do so? Well, although I’d wish to answer this question, I think we’ll have just to wait and observe.

 

Drones and the revolution behind it

long time ago and even now we were wondering about what the future can bring us. Most of our visions were focused on enormous skyscrapers, flying cars, and the immortality of humankind due to technological advancement we weren’t able to achieve just yet. Well, know we are another step closer to match our future-like dreams.

New revolution might’ve just started with this simple technology use, exploiting the vision and giving a route a future logistics might go in. Medical drones delivery is just about to start and it might be closer than we think!

The idea behind it is to grant people with medical supplies in places that are unachievable by simple medical care or for those who need it immediately. What it means, is that medical supplies are attached to a precisely built drone, which then flies to marked destination making the delivery by dropping the supplies on target. Many big corporations may think alike or are even contributing to the idea of drone delivery just like this startup, shown in the video above. This is profoundly fascinating from a futuristics standpoint as this might be the thing called “flying cars” before even drones were available to the public!

No matter how beautiful the idea of “drone delivery everything” is going to happen, many logistic and privacy complication have to be discussed with the official and new laws have to made, especially for this kind of subject. Nevertheless our future and present is changing in front of our eyes, we just have to know where to look to oversee the upcoming revolution, as for this moment the sky… is the actual limit.

 

 

Autonomous Laboratories And Science Of The Future.

 

Whoever asked about the future, whether the topic was directed into flying cars (presumably drones) or, how our jobs are going to change, and how much of them will vanish due to technological advancement.

Anyone who’s researching autonomous startups and projects already can see a trend where monotonous jobs like cleaning, driving, and even shopping can be done without human effort to do so. What about all of those fields when the human precision is necessary to achieve targets and goals, like teaching, being a psychiatrist and scientific topics in general, excluding computation parts. Well, we might’ve not yet achieved human-like bot, but we are one more step forward, that will make “technological advancement” in the field of chemistry much faster. What it means is better and faster drugs, materials, and everything that chemistry covers, development.

It all thanks to a revolutionary project where chemists do not have to touch crucial samples at all. Where our hands are replaced by a steady robot’s arm, and results can be seen on our monitors at home. Also, it means that those very dangerous chemical and viruses can’t be transmitted or spreaded due to human error what will definitely reduce the risk of future pandemics and biological weapons, but before tht statement will be true, more development and security bridges in all form have to go in place so the technique can be shared around the globe. Thanks to troubles and mistakes of the past, we can make a wonderful change for tomorrow and upcoming generations.
