The group has just invented a liquid and tested it on one of their subjects. It endowed the subject with super-human night vision without using any gadget. Although it might sound like a science-fiction movie, but in reality, the liquid drops contain Ce6, combined with insulin, that creates microscopic chemical reaction to boost low light sources. The inspiration came from deep sea fish that uses the Ce6 to move underwater in dark conditions. Gabriel Licina volunteered for the experiment. The Science for the Masses group created...

The idea is to treat the flying guests with more details of the sights they are about to see in the state or city they are traveling to. For example if you are flying from U.S. to Paris, you’ll see all the details of important landmarks such as Eiffel Tower, and their visualization too. When the travelers don’t want to see the interactive visualization they can switch to see...
