3D printed tyres that never need replacing
Most tyres will need to be replaced about every five years, however a new 3D printed tyre from Michelin may one day outlast your vehicle. While traditional rubber tyres gradually lose their tread as a result of friction, the prototype uses 3D printers to replenish this tread as needed. A series of sensors built into the tyre monitor the tread wear and provide information about performance and maintenance. This information is relayed to you via an app, and you can then order 3D printed tread replacements. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/3d-printed-tire-michelin-concept/

An unmanned shop on wheels that can move from location to location.
Moby Store, launched by Wheelys, a Stockholm-headquartered startup, is now testing a model of a 24-hour store run entirely by technology that can be moved from one spot to the next. The Wheelys cofounders decided to test in China rather than Sweden in part because of China?s large population, but even more so because of the country?s near-ubiquitous adoption of paying with your phone. Purchases are made using an app to scan a barcode and paying over the phone. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608104/in-china-a-store-of-the-future-no-checkout-no-staff/?

A pool made from a shipping container
A Canadian company has converted standard, metal shipping containers into pools and jacuzzis that can be installed above or below ground. A portion of one wall is cut away to make room for a viewing window. The pool also comes equipped with an interior partition made of sturdy, heat-resistant plastic that is used to separate it from a jacuzzi. https://www.dezeen.com/2017/05/03/modpools-repurposes-used-shipping-containers-swimming-pools-hot-tubs/

New cycling system powers America's Cup win
The radical move to cycle-style grinding stations let New Zealand take advantage of superior leg-power, rather than arm-power, to fuel the crucial on-board hydraulics system and win the 35th America's Cup. The successful system yielded other benefits since it left hands free to tackle other on-board duties, including the intricate business of foil-trimming. The NZ skipper at 26 was also the youngest ever to win the race.! http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-27/new-zealand-reclaim-americas-cup-with-win-over-oracle-usa/8654286?

Turn CO2 into fuel
Researchers at the CSIRO and University of Adelaide have created a new catalyst that efficiently converts CO2 into a synthetic form of natural gas. Not only does this highly active catalyst have the potential to help us solve the problem of CO2 emissions on earth but it could also help in the Mars program. Mars? atmosphere is 96% CO2, and with SpaceX?s Elon Musk recently announcing it will launch a crewed mission to Mars, they plan to produce methane (fuel) on Mars via the same reaction. https://blog.csiro.au/turning-co2-into-fuel/
