The small coastal city of Dunkirk in northern France is perhaps most famous, at the moment, for its portrayal in Christopher Nolan’s eponymous 2017 film, but it also deserves special attention for its decision to offer free public transit to all. In a move designed to reinforce economic fairness and establish Dunkirk as a sustainable, low-carbon community, Mayor Patrice Vergriete established the city’s inclusive transit policy, which will expand free public transit service to seven days a week starting in September 2018. The policy change, paid for with money that was originally allocated for the construction of a sports stadium, has been successful in increasing and diversifying ridership and could prove to be a powerful model for other cities looking to improve their quality of life and decrease their carbon footprint.

Imagine you’re in a futuristic clinic, standing in front of a middle-aged man. One of his arms is outstretched while the other stays limp, giving him the effect of a zombie. His face droops on one side. When he speaks, it sounds like his mouth is full of marbles. You talk to him, ask him to raise that limp arm, try to figure out what’s wrong with him. If you were a doctor—and maybe you aren’t—you could save him, could figure out that this man is having a stroke and treat him in time to stop the bleeding in his brain.

There’s no stroke victim in front of you, though. The man is not real. The clinic exists only in virtual reality, and your patient is a figment of the digital world, his symptoms a mere illustration of what might happen in real life.

This experience represents one possibility for the future of healthcare, a future that telecommunications company Qualcomm is throwing its weight behind. The company created this demo using its standalone Snapdragon 835 VR platform to show what how increasingly fast and low-latency networks could bring on an entirely new kind of healthcare—one where tools like VR help doctors better understand, diagnose, and treat patients in real life.

“The Woz,” who drives a Tesla Model S, is concerned some people are mistaking Tesla’s current Autopilot system as a completely capable self-driving program. In reality, Tesla’s Autopilot feature is classified by the federal government as a “level two” autonomous driving system, which means the car is only partially automated, meaning it will steer itself, accelerate, and decelerate — but the driver must always be prepared to take control of the vehicle.

Paqui is back with this year’s Carolina Reaper Madness chip (the World’s Hottest Chip) made with the infamous Carolina Reaper pepper, to be sold individually in their “One Chip Challenge” campaign. We designed packaging to convey the heat and excitement of the Carolina Reaper pepper, a single-chip pouch to seal in the dangerously spicy seasoning, and a coffin-shaped box to protect the chip pouch and inform the consumer of the risk involved.

Americans consume 8.6 billion water bottles — every year. Of those, only 1 of 5 is recycled. Fortunately, a handful of MIT students have developed a solution to this problem, and it involves repurposing waste plastic bottles to reinforce concrete. Because the newly-invented method results in the concrete being more durable than existing concrete, plastic bottles may soon be used to construct everything from stronger building foundations to sidewalks and street barriers.
