Been a while since I did one of these. For shame! But, hey, I was writing more comics, so that's a pretty good excuse, right?

DermalAbyss is an ink that reacts to body chemistry. Anyway, long story short, interactive tattoos.

16 Psyche is an unusually iron rich asteroid. Like 10 quintillion dollareedoos rich. Which is, for the record, more wealth than has been produced in all of human history combined. Just another reason to get serious about the Interplanetary Transport Network. Also, y'know, not turning the Earth into hellscape.

WALLABY is a telescope array that was already collecting 15 terabytes per second when it was only one-third finished. The rest of the antennae ought to be installed later this year.

MetaLimbs will turn you into a cyborg! Whoops, too late. I take the perhaps absurd view that we're already cyborgs. Yeah, that's right, all of us. How’s that? Well, we’re not used to thinking of memory, language, or culture as technologies, but they had to be invented and our use of them has vastly expanded the horizons of human ability. But, still, robot arms would be a welcome addition.
