How to Pack for the Apocalypse

Posted by in categories: business, innovation

Bug-out bags/survival kits are a controversial topic. Everybody has a different philosophy about what makes a good one. This is Brent’s. While bigger and heavier than a lot of the bags you’ll see online, you can keep it in the closet by your front door or the trunk of your car, and you’ll be prepared for an emergency that could last many days. Brent’s kit doubles as a slick backpacking setup, so you’ll get to know your gear extremely well, and you get to have fun with it, too.

The Weird World of Cyborg Animals Is Here

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, engineering, robotics/AI

Roboticists frequently turn to nature for inspiration for their inventions, reverse engineering the traits that evolution has developed over millennia. Others are taking a shortcut by simply integrating modern technology with living animals.

The idea may seem crazy, but animals and machines are not so different. Just as a network of wires carry electrical signals between a robot’s sensors, processing units and motors, the flow of action potentials around our nervous system connects our sensory organs, brain and muscles.

Supertall skyscraper hangs from orbiting asteroid in Clouds Architecture Office concept

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats, space travel

In a bid to get around terrestrial height restrictions, Clouds Architecture Office has proposed suspending the world’s tallest skyscraper from an asteroid, leaving residents to parachute to earth.

New York-based Clouds Architecture Office drew up plans for Analemma Tower to “overturn the established skyscraper typology” by building not up from the ground but down from the sky by affixing the foundations to an orbiting asteroid.

“Harnessing the power of planetary design thinking, it taps into the desire for extreme height, seclusion and constant mobility,” said the architects, who have previously drawn up proposals for space transportation and a 3D-printed ice house on Mars.
