Tech from Singularity’s Children – Meddling with Mosquitos


I incorporate a lot of ‘fun’ technology into my books, every now and again, some of it leaks out into RL:
Miraculous’ mosquito hack cuts dengue by 77%

The REVOBS act pays species for the work they do (in #MESHCOIN of course!)
Bees clearly deserve to be paid for their pollenation work… but what about mosquitos?

A scene in Denial (Denial Book One) has the lawyer for the Mosquitos not entirely happy with a new technology that makes his clients allergic to human blood…

Tech from Singularity’s Children – #BugNet

 
A couple of recent articles about animals being smart:
Researchers find kangaroos can communicate with people.
 
…and rats love driving tiny cars.. This one could be straight out of some #BugNet caper with Biggie, Spray, and co!!

My prediction, once we put Neuralink / Neural Lace into their heads, they are never going to shut up!

Tech from Singularity’s Children – Powered Wingsuits

 
This is pretty spectacular!
In my books the pilots have powered wings that can supply a few flaps to decelerate for landing. I still find the concept more SciFi-cool, but I did toy with the idea of ‘rocket boots’ for landing… this is not far off!
