After the emergence of a transparent battery, transparent screen and transparent mobile phone now, there is now another thing that has been made transparent: Paper. Paper manufacturer Oji Holdings Corp and chemical giant Mitsubishi Chemical Corp have developed a way to produce the world's first transparent paper made from plant fibers. Based on a common paper-making process, but at a nanometer-scale, this new technology has succeeded in making paper transparent. The see-through paper is expected to be produced at a commercial scale sometime in 2016. One day soon, we may be wiping with transparent toilet paper.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
