Jewellary design student Lucy Davis from UAL's Central Saint Martins has created Oyster card acrylic nails with an inbuilt RFID micro-chip, allowing you to swipe in and out of the barriers with ease.
Scientists from the University of Southern Denmark have used synthesised crystalline materials to create a substance that absorbs oxygen in extremely high concentrations, enough to remove all the oxygen in a room. With the ability to release stored oxygen when it is needed, the substance could replace diver's scuba tanks in the future.
Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon and the University of California at Berkeley have developed the first application that lets users scale, rotate, and move onscreen objects in the 3-D space. The scientists have evolved a task that usually takes hours, into a software that takes minutes.

Scientists from Harvard University have developed an artificial photosynthesis system, which harnesses solar energy to split water molecules and hydrogen-eating bacteria to produce liquid fuels.
Luxembourg is funding the mining company Planetary Resources to advance technologies for the exploration of the most commercially viable near-Earth asteroids. The companies latest aircraft, Arkyd-6, will launch later this year and obtain key data related to the presence of water on asteroids.
A working solar thermophotovoltaic device (STPV) has been developed by researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which could double the amount of energy generated by traditional solar cells. A new layer is added to a solar cell’s structure, absorbing heat and converting it to light, which reflects off onto another solar cell.
The acquisition aims to boost the growth of LinkedIn, as well as Microsoft Office 365 and Dynamics. The combination of Microsoft's cloud and LinkedIn’s network will allow for increased connectivity between professionals.
In an all-stock deal valued at $3 billion, Tesla is offering to buy SolarCity, which would merge entrepreneur Elon Musk's visions for solar energy and electric cars in one company. Customers would power their homes and cars with sustainable solar energy, lowering costs and reducing a dependence on fossil fuels.
The advertising agency Forsman and Bodenfors have created an app that integrates a safety feature into GPS satellite navigation. To warn drivers to slow down, the app switches to a child's voice in areas where children are likely to be present, including schools and day-care centres.
Dubai has ambitiously opened a 3D one-storey prototype building, with floorspace of about 250 square meters, using a 20-foot by 120-foot by 40-foot printer. The arc-shaped office was built in 17 days using a special mixture of cement and cost around $140,000.
