New X Prize Sets Sights on Science, Technology and Social Solutions

http://www.xprizenews.org/index.php?p=590

According to the X Prize Foundation and the World Technology Network, examples of privately-funded solutions in scientific and social fields might include the following:

1. Transportation: Demonstration of a 4-seat vehicle able to achieve 200 miles per gallon in a cross country race

2. Nanotechnology: Construction of a pre-determined molecule by an assembler

3. Aging deceleration: Extension of mammal life, or demonstrated evidence of aging reversal

4. Education: Demonstration of a self-sufficient education facility able to operate independently and educate villagers anywhere on the planet

The WTN and X Prize Foundation have developed a website to court competitors and attract sponsors: http://www.wtnxprize.org/
