Reproductive healthcare remains largely an underserved extension of the U.S. healthcare system. For those not covered, the price tag of a single assisted reproductive technology cycle can cut into more than 50 percent of an individual’s annual disposable income. So how can we diminish this cost?
Augmented reality wearable technology is set to make an enormous impact in 2014. We’ve already seen what Fitbit and Google Glass are capable of doing, but other companies are looking to advance the technology even further.
While Bitcoin’s volatility and sustainability may put investors at risk, it's publicity is at an all-time high. And one Bay Area company is not only taking notice, but implementing it into its website.
Smart cars are the perfect design for the city. They’re small (8.8 feet in length), ecologically friendly, and can significantly reduce your parking time. And yes, you can even look damn cool in one.

Waiting in line to meet Santa Claus can be an overwhelming event. The nervous sweating, the obnoxious temper tantrums and the uncontrollable crying are all an implicit part of your experience.
