Nova sceinceNow Wednesday on PBS

Although it has been on air for centuries it is still as good as ever. You may laugh that Nova is "the highest rated science series on television and the most watched documentary series on public television" but it is a much watch.

What's The Next Big Thing?

Is it Science Fiction or Reality? Built in the vision of cars from many a sci-fi movie, including Minority Report (but not as sleek and sexy), the "Next Big Thing" in cars is the GM EN-V, a two-wheeled, battery-powered car that drives autonomously. Enjoy this click from PBS:

Watch the full episode. See more NOVA scienceNOW.

Social Robots - "Would you want a robotic friend who could chitchat, do chores, even take care of you? Such bots may be here soon." Talk about the movie iRobot, Will Smith would be worried. Nova talks about the future of social electronics and a very smart grid. Futuristic or a world we already live in...Droid.
