A hoverboard rider recently soared into Guinness World Records after flying a record distance on the futuristic, flying skateboard.

Catalin Alexandru Duru, the inventor of the prototype hoverboard, traveled the length of two-and-a-half football fields (about 905 feet or 375 meters) to achieve the world record title before landing gently in the sparkling water of Quebec’s Lake Ouareau.

Duru reached a height of 16.4 feet (5 m), but the flying board is allegedly capable of much greater altitudes, said Duru, who told Guinness World Records that his machine could reach “scary heights.”

Employment in the global renewable energy industry has increased by over one million jobs during the past year, according to a new report released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). 7.7 million people are now employed in renewable energy, an 18 percent increase on last year’s 6.5 million.

The renewable energy sector is continuing to grow rapidly across the world, especially in China where wind recently surpassed nuclear to become the country’s third largest source of electricity generation. Given the scope of its green energy ambitions, it comes as little surprise that China has the most renewable energy jobs of any country worldwide – approximately 3.4 million.

Three baby boys with life-threatening breathing problems are alive today thanks to a 4D biomaterial, a medical implant designed to change shape over time, that helped them keep breathing, researchers say.

 “Today, we see a way to cure a disease that has been killing children for generations,” said Dr. Glenn Green, a pediatric otolaryngologist at the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and the senior author of a new report on the boys’ cases.

The researchers said that 4D biomaterials could one day help not only patients with respiratory ailments, but also those with disorders involving the heart, bones, muscles or gut.

Blind Expectant Mother is Moved as She Touches Her Baby Boy’s 3D Printed Face

It’s a bit of a modern touchstone for expectant mothers and fathers to see the first ultrasound photos of their unborn children. It’s a moving, transformative experience for parents-to-be, but for Tatiana Guerra, it was an experience she was unlikely to ever have.

At 30 years old, Guerra was 20 weeks pregnant, so when she went to her doctor to discover how her unborn son, Murilo, was progressing, she had no expectation of actually seeing an image of what her baby looked like. Guerra unfortunately lost her sight when she was 17.

But with the aid of 3D printing, the young mother had a priceless experience. Her doctor surprised her with a 3D printed sculpture of her baby’s face which was taken from ultrasound image data. It allowed her to touch a replica of her tiny boy’s face and in a tactile way, take in how Murilo might look.

Solar Impulse Pacific crossing will be ‘flight of my life,’ says pilot

“Over land, you always have alternate airports,” said André Borschberg, two days before embarking on the first-ever flight across the Pacific Ocean in a solar-powered airplane. “The major challenge starts now.”

Borschberg will spend five consecutive days inside the tiny cockpit of the Solar Impulse 2 as he flies from Nanjing, China, to Hawaii, the first U.S. stop for the Solar Impulse 2’s round-the-world trip. From Hawaii, his co-pilot Bertrand Piccard will take over, piloting the dragonfly-like aircraft from Hawaii to Phoenix, Arizona. Eventually, they plan to return to Abu Dhabi where the journey began in March.

Borschberg says preparation for these long overseas portions of the trip began years ago, with the design of the airplane.

Dave Goldberg, CEO of SurveyMonkey and husband of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, died suddenly Friday night, according to a public Facebook post by his brother, Robert Goldberg. He was 47.

“It’s with incredible shock and sadness that I’m letting our friends and family know that my amazing brother, Dave Goldberg, beloved husband of Sheryl Sandberg, father of two wonderful children, and son of Paula Goldberg, passed away suddenly last night,” Goldberg writes.

Goldberg had been CEO of SurveyMonkey since 2009. His time at SurveyMonkey was part of an epic career, full of ups-and-downs, during which the media company he founded got acquired by Yahoo right after the internet bubble burst in the early 2000s.
