In this episode, five insights into the future of great interest:
(1). Body Electricity. A group of U.S. scientists makes a small device that can turn body heat into electricity.
(2). Controllers of the future. Sony files a patent to use everyday objects as Playstation controllers. In the future we will play with a banana.
(3). Virtuous recycling. Two stories that come from England and Spain and teach us how to recover useless things, which are in front of our eyes, and can become incredibly valuable.
(4). Electronic waste. Or how the European Union plans to tackle the problem of 51,000 tons of smartphone battery chargers thrown away every year.
(5). The Repairability Index. The French initiative to help consumers choose technology based on its ability to be repaired and last.
