Engineers reveal ‘invincible’ autonomous robot insect that can’t be flattened

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, robotics/AI

A team in Switzerland has created a soft robotic insect that can withstand a multitude of hits from a flyswatter.

A new soft robotic insect could one day form part of a swarm designed to perform a number of different tasks. A team from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland developed the insect and showed it is incredibly durable, even when being battered by a flyswatter.

Are Cats Spies Sent

Posted by in category: genetics

They are probs descendants from god alien cats from ancient time. They are entirely self sufficient and so cute face_with_colon_three Also essentially perfect on all levels that rival even humans. Basically a whole kit of ninja abilities that truly are phenomenal even used in war times. There is a reason why culture after culture praises them and revels in their abilities and intelligence. Even legends say the ninja learned of them to be akin to them in stealth abilities. Even in popular culture the flerkin is seen guarding the tesseract. Also dragon ball z there is a god cat that oversees a universe. Even to this day the feline genetic code still shows mysteries that have enticed generations of people so why not see they have their own story to tell their own universe of mystery.

Recent polling shows Americans love their conspiracy theories. They also love cats. This was bound to happen.

CBT for social anxiety may have a protective effect on cells

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for patients with social anxiety not only helps to reduce anxiety levels but also seems to protect against accelerated cellular ageing, a study involving researchers at Karolinska Institutet published in the journal Translational Psychiatry reports.

“This is the first step towards better understanding the link between and the treatment of psychiatric issues,” says lead author Kristoffer Månsson, researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

Individuals affected by mental illness are at greater risk of developing somatic conditions, such as and diabetes, earlier in life than unaffected individuals. While the reasons for this are unclear, one possible contributory factor is that mental health disorders are associated with and accelerated cellular ageing.

US Air Force’s flying saucer plans declassified

Posted by in category: military

Circa 2012

Recently declassified documents reveal that the US Air Force was working on a flying saucer-like craft in 1956. “Project 1794” was in research and development at the USAF’s Aeronautical Systems Division, and was contracted out to Canadian company Avro Aircraft Limited. The craft was designed to be a vertical take-off and landing plane that used propulsion jets to steer, and could reach a top speed between Mach 3 and Mach 4, with a ceiling of over 100,000 feet and a range of about 1,000 nautical miles. The Project 1794, Final Development Summary Report reveals that the project was going well, and would “provide a much superior performance to that estimated at the start of contract negotiations.”
