Google’s newest search tool, unveiled today, starts giving you results the instant you start typing. With Google Instant, the Internet overlords are taking search-engine prediction to a new level.

Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
