It's no Bruno Mars, but I thought this was an interesting read...

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/apr/16/scientists-accidentally-create-mutant-enzyme-that-eats-plastic-bottles

...the practical applications of this are amazing.

Not the least of which being we're now one step closer to creating fantasy-slimes that can instantly eat through people's clothes.

Oh, wait. >.>;; I mean, recycling...of the Earth's...waste plastics...um, yeah.

Haven't even really nailed 3D-printed housing and we've already got termites for them.

Nah it really is exciting. I know some care must be taken when transplanting species, but I wonder about letting the actual bugs lose in our landfills, and if we can genetically modify the bugs to have the superior enzyme.

Imagine the bugs being able to crawl through the tiny little pathways in garbage, into trash bags and the like. It'd be great if they could and would eat the trash bags too.

It would be mimic_irl.

Physicists invent flux capacitor to break time-reversal symmetry
University of Queensland

Quote:
Physicists have invented a flux capacitor and, while it might not run a ‘Back to the Future’ inspired time machine, they say it will have important applications in communication technology and quantum computing.

The team from The University of Queensland, RMIT University and ETH Zurich have proposed a device which uses the quantum tunnelling of magnetic flux around a capacitor which they say can break time-reversal symmetry....
It does go on.....
