In a futuristic world reimagined, everyone will be equipped with electronic eyes. No longer will people need external computing devices, rather their new eyes will create a hybrid augmented reality for their users. Soon everything will become a ‘game’.
Sight Systems isn’t coming any time soon, but it’s a cool thought of what the future holds.

One of the most important parts of actually being in space is that astronauts can conduct physics experiments in zero gravity they otherwise couldn’t on Earth. Here, a NASA astronaut conducts a small, yet amazing experiment. After ‘charging’ a knit needle with a piece of paper, he squirts drops of water near the needle, causing them to orbit it just like a satellite.
