Because our priority is the quality of the information that reaches our readers, we have chosen some articles published over the past week that reflect the most relevant aspects of the technological world at Pplware.

We talked about the new Android 13, various advances in science, the futuristic Lincoln Model L100 car, we reviewed the Tronsmart T7 speaker, and much more.

Science and technology are achieving results to extend people's lives for more years. However, there are other achievements to be made along the way. Among them, the resolution of diseases, such as cancer, or disabilities that affect the human being. In that sense, a team of scientists developed a collagen protein implant from pig skin and the results were amazing. The 20 people who underwent this experience regained their sight.

Bioengineering will be able to answer a large number of problems that still diminish human capabilities.

The Earth has a lot of water, even a lot! In fact, the amount is so much that it is difficult to count and translate the value into numbers. According to estimates, the Earth will have 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 liters of water. However, only 2% of all this water is drinkable. Even so, it is a large amount that is not evenly distributed. What if one day we needed more water?

There is no event in sight that would make us lose this precious liquid to space. However, in that same space, a few billion light years away, there is a place that has 140 billion times more water than what we have here on our planet. Therefore, 140 billion times one thousand two hundred and sixty trillion liters.
