On this week's Technobyte, tech guru Aki Anastasiou looks at intelligent pavements in Kansas and printing human corneas.

Tech guru Aki Anastasiou looks at intelligent pavements in Kansas and a breakthrough in printing human corneas.

Legendary venture capitalist Mary Meeker has just released the 2018 version of her famous Internet Trends report. It covers everything from mobile to commerce to the competition between tech giants.

I look forward to Mary Meeker's reports the whole year because she really paints a picture of what's happening, where the growth is happening and what are the thing to lookout for....

Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru

According to Mary Meeker's report, about 3.6 billion people will be on the internet in 2018, thanks to cheaper Android phones and WiFi becoming more available.

It sounds like a huge number but there are a few billion of people who are not on the internet which presents a huge opportunity in the world of technology and this what this reports has highlighted.

Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru

View the rest of the report from Mary Meeker here:

Kansas City technology start-up, Integrated Roadways, is developing "smart pavement" technology that will help increase roadway safety for self-driving cars also serve as a platform for Wi-Fi for cars and other future mobility services.

This technology would detect crashes as they occur and automatically notify emergency responders to those crashes.

Researchers at Newcastle University have devised a groundbreaking experimental technique that could help millions on the corneal transplant waiting list.

Professor of Tissue Engineering Che Connon and his team of scientists were able to combine healthy corneal stem cells with collagen and alginate to create 'bio-ink, a printable solution that enables them to reproduce the shape of a human cornea in just 10 minutes, by using a simple 3D bio-printer.

I have often said to people that in future when your liver is kaput or kidneys are kaput, they will be able to print them out on a 3-D printer, put them into your body and you will be able to carry on with your day to day stuff.
