It's only Monday, but the week is already heating up, with Microsoft announcing its purchase of Mojang (and by extension, Minecraft). We're also checking out a jetpack that doesn't make you fly; instead, it helps the wearer run a faster mile. Then, there's the tiny radio that may be used in future sensors that's the size of an ant, and doesn't need batteries (it uses electromagnetic waves to power itself).
What do you think will happen now that Microsoft owns Minecraft? Will the game go the way of the dodo, or did Microsoft make a savvy purchase?
