 IN TODAY'S BLOG: AMAZING STUFF FLYING CARS; AN ISLAND THE SIZE OF MAUI MADE FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC, AND A DEAF BABY HEARS FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH A COCHLEAR IMPLANT.

 

We may finally be getting those flying cars the Jetsons promised. Manufacturers have received special permission from U.S. officials to put the flying cars  into commercial production. The light aircraft can drive down the highway at ordinary speeds with wings folded. 

 

 

 
 
 
 

An island the size of Hawaii made entirely from plastic bottles could become the hottest postcode on earth, and is part of an incredible environmental vision for the future.

CGI images show how a team of Dutch scientists plan to take 44 million kilos of plastic waste currently bobbing around in the Pacific Ocean and transform it into Recycled Island.


Solar and wave energy will be used to sustain the island and its 500,000 inhabitants.
 

This 8 month old baby was born deaf, watch the moment as his cochlear implant is activated and he hears sound for the first time, and his mother's voice.
