As I have said before, not all technology is good.
Wow. It still works, what an amazing machine.
Weird. Adding asphalt to lithium batteries decreased their charge time to just a few minutes, and they lasted longer.
I for one, welcome our new robot overlords…
SpaceX has teased a photo of the full spacesuit and, of course, it looks cool.
Feed spiders carbon nanotubes and get webbing that could hold a human. Wow!
Nanomachines are microscopic robots that can perform surgery from inside a patients body. They have long been thought to be an effective tool against cancer. Now we are getting close.
What? Wow. Living Computers?
Why is this a technology from a Swiss company and not an American company? Because we are still pretending climate change isn’t real.
In the early 1980’s HBO made an intro piece to be played before the beginning of a film. This was before computer animation. The result was pretty amazing and gave the network a sense of quality. This is how it was done.
The seed bank designed to protect Earth’s biodiversity in case of an Armageddon-type event is flooding thanks to global climate change.
A Homebuilt 200W LASER Bazooka
Take note: This young man has a Bachelor’s degree Chemistry and advanced classes in Laser optics, this is very dangerous!
The world’s largest tunneling machine, Big Bertha, finally finished its two-mile journey under the city of Seattle. The project is to make a tunnel for a local freeway. That’s one big tunneling machine!
Even cooler, the lead researcher is 94!
Today congress has voted to eliminate the privacy protections the FCC has put in place to prevent your Internet Provider from spying on you and selling the information. This will not make the Internet better.
New Congress, and a new threat to online privacy. Seems like we were just fighting about this with the other party.
At least if he/she is riding on Boeing’s new CST-100 Starliner spacecraft. I can’t wait to see Space X’s new spacesuits.
Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, ranging from room-temperature superconductors to powerful rocket propellant.
EDM (electrical discharge machining) cuts through thick plates of steel within +/- 0.0001″.
Material science is still in it’s infancy. But each year we are designing new and amazing substances that will eventually change the way we live.
Set off in Zurrieq, Malta late last year. The monster goes off toward the end of the video. Nice show.
Yes, that is a video of a real 13 foot tall walking armored Mech. A Korean Company named Hankook Mirae have commissioned a Hollywood effects animator to design the suit.
They would still be pretty inefficient in battle though. But pretty darn scary.
