Nothing is impossible in the world of science, and this has been proven over the years in form of various unbelievable innovations. No matter how challenging or impossible a particular thing may seem at first, but somehow science has conquered all impossibilities that become hurdle in the path of inventions.
Creative breakthroughs in futuristic technology, medical innovations and scientific activities have made today’s digital era a fantasy land, where crossing the speed of light and controlling a robotic arm from human brain are easily attainable. Here are some amazing science fictions that have become reality, leaving all rigid notions behind.
Crossing the speed of light
We’ve all heard and read the fact that ‘speed of light cannot be chased or crossed.’ But this has been proven wrong by the research team at NEC Research Institute in Princeton, US. The researches have successfully managed to pass a laser beam through a chamber that consists of specially prepared gas. Even time of the chamber can be cloaked as per the requirements.
As a result, the beam generated through the chamber runs 300 times faster than the speed of light. This proves that the light speed barrier can be broken, providedyou’re able to generate right space with appropriate conditions.

Research team from University of Pittsburgh neurobiology department has developed a robotic arm that can be controlled by direct instructions from human brain. Later, the team presented this mind-controlled robotic arm to a quadriplegic patient named Jan Scheuermann. All thanks to the intelligent arm Scheuermannwas able to perform different tasks with ease. By the end of the 13 weeks, the scientists observed that she could even indulge herself in finishing complex tasks, just like a biological arm.
Peeking inside the human body
Three-dimensional copies of person’s internal organs can be generated with the help of CT scan data and a 3D printer. People may not like seeing a model of their intestines or other internal organs. But the technology could be useful for medical professionals to better examine tumors or other irregularities inside human body. With this high-end technology, doctors will be able to get a clear view of the defected organs without much hassle.

3D printed technology has even made working jawbone replacement possible. 83 year-old patient was given this fabricated jawbone structure that’s made from titanium powder and bioceramic. This 3D printed jawbone works like a normal human jaw, thus allows disabled people to eat and drink properly like able-bodied.
When imagination and science blend together, virtually impossible things can also become possible. Scientific advancements and creativity together can lead to a better future, evolved with digital fabrication or other technological ways.
