Lockheed Martin Submits Patent for 3D Printed Synthetic Diamond

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Check it out! Finally! Now get ready to mass produce synthetic diamonds for QC, medical tech, etc.


Every additive manufacturing (AM) system offers the potential for endless creativity. As designers learn to embrace the possibilities offered by digital design and AM, the number of applications for the technology increases. Everything has its limits, however, and for AM those limits are sometimes related to materials.

Hacking microbes

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering, food

Biology is the world’s greatest manufacturing platform, according to MIT spinout Ginkgo Bioworks.

The synthetic-biology startup is re-engineering yeast to act as tiny organic “factories” that produce chemicals for the flavor, fragrance, and food industries, with aims of making products more quickly, cheaply, and efficiently than traditional methods.

“We see biology as a transformative technology,” says Ginkgo co-founder Reshma Shetty PhD ’08, who co-invented the technology at MIT. “It is the most powerful and sophisticated manufacturing platform on the planet, able to self-assemble incredible structures at a scale that is far out of reach of the most cutting-edge human technology.”

Board Recommends Further Use Of Autonomy In Sea Control, Support Of Ground Troops

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, military, robotics/AI

Hmmmm.


The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps should advance the way they use unmanned systems, favoring greater autonomy over remotely-controlled missions and developing multi-vehicle systems such as swarms and cascaded operations, according to a recently released report by the Defense Science Board.

The DSB report, requested by the Pentagon’s acquisition chief in November 2014, notes a variety of Pentagon-wide challenges in developing, testing, fielding and operating autonomous systems, such as operator trust, cyber security and developing a test and evaluation plan for learning systems.

Here’s a cautionary tale about why we shouldn’t colonize any Earth-like neighboring planets

Posted by in category: space

An Earth-like planet in the habitable zone of the nearest star to the sun seems like a tantalizing site for a colony. But should we go there at all?

Robotic Brain Training Relieves Paralysis in Duke Study

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

Excellent! Super human capabilities at work via brain-controlled robotics.


Eight people who spent years paralyzed from spinal cord injuries have regained partial control of their lower limbs as well as some sensation following work with brain-controlled robotics. Five of the participants had been paralyzed for at least five years and two had been paralyzed for more than ten.

It took seven months of training before most of the subjects saw any changes. After a year, four patients’ sensation and muscle control changed significantly enough that doctors upgraded their diagnoses from complete to partial paralysis.

Interesting recorded show on how each person has been assigned a unique node which can replicate the person digitally in a virtual world. And, how DoD and D-Wave is involved. Not sure how factual this is; but an interesting concept.


Anthony Patch, author researcher & public speacker, is back on The Kev Baker Show. This time out we discuss how CERN & quantum computers literally hold the key to unlocking a multidimensional reality.

New Condensed Matter State Paves the Way for Scalable Quantum Computers

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics

Rice physicists are closing in on a method that will create a new condensed matter state in which all electrons in a material act as one by manipulating them with light and a magnetic field. This research advance technologies such as quantum computers.

For particle physicists, studying the interactions between photons and electrons has long been an area of interest. After all, observing such phenomena could eventually lead us to the creation of a viable quantum computer.

Physicist Junichiro Kono and his colleagues at Rice University are making headway on a method to create a new condensed matter state, where electrons in a material “couple” after they are manipulated with light and a magnetic field.
