Researchers at Georgia Tech have created a flexible 3D printed multi-directional antenna that can harvest 6 micorwatts of power from a 5G transmitter at up to 180 meters. Harvest wireless energy in this way can replace the use of batteries in IoT and wearable devices.

Neil On Software created a handy guide on how to deal with difficult people on software projects. I think the tips on how to address each scenario are applicable for the most part outside of software also.

Tim Ferriss recently interviewed Balaji Srinivasan and it was an insanely good interview! They cover geo-politics, crypto, their intersection, among many, many other topics, futurist and otherwise.
