Clockwork DevTerm R-01 Takes RISC-V Out For A Spin

Posted by in categories: computing, education

If you’re anything like us you’ve been keeping a close eye on the development of RISC-V: an open standard instruction set architecture (ISA) that’s been threatening to change the computing status quo for what seems like forever. From its humble beginnings as a teaching tool in Berkeley’s Parallel Computing Lab in 2010, it’s popped up in various development boards and gadgets from time to time. It even showed up in the 2019 Hackaday Supercon badge, albeit in FPGA form. But getting your hands on an actual RISC-V computer has been another story entirely. Until now, that is.

Clockwork has recently announced the availability of the DevTerm R-01, a variant of their existing portable computer that’s powered by a RISC-V module rather than the ARM chips featured in the earlier A04 and A06 models. Interestingly the newest member of the family is actually the cheapest at $239 USD, though it’s worth mentioning that not only does this new model only include 1 GB of RAM, but the product page makes it clear that the RISC-V version is intended for experienced penguin wranglers who aren’t afraid of the occasional bug.

Beyond the RISC-V CPU and slimmed down main memory, this is the same DevTerm that our very own [Donald Papp] reviewed earlier this month. Thanks to the modular nature of the portable machine, this sort of component swapping is a breeze, though frankly we’re impressed that the Clockwork team is willing to go out on such a limb this early in the product’s life. In our first look at the device we figured at best they would release an updated CPU board to accommodate the Raspberry Pi 4 Compute Module, but supporting a whole new architecture is a considerably bolder move. One wonders that other plans they may have for the retro-futuristic machine. Perhaps a low-power x86 chip isn’t out of the question?

Can We Resurrect Extinct Species? Scientists Put Jurassic Park to the Test

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, existential risks, genetics

De-extinction grabbed our imagination in the 90s with Jurassic Park. Scientists have since asked: how possible is it?

According to a new study, nearly impossible. But wait—it’s not all bad news. While bringing back a faithful copy of an extinct species may be impossible, we could bring back a hybrid species that’s a genetic mix between an extinct species and its modern descendant.

Published in Current Biology, the study eschews the grandiose mammoth, instead focusing on a tiny test case: the Christmas Island rat. Hefty in size and loudly vocal when invading docked ships and their cargo, the rodents were last seen in the 1900s. With a stroke of luck, the team recovered DNA from two well-preserved museum samples and compared them against a close relative: the Norway brown rat, a popular lab model for genetic studies today.

Elon Musk Shares Transphobic Meme Following Report of Grimes Dating Chelsea Manning

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, Elon Musk, engineering, space travel

Sooner or later Musks childish, morally and politically inept use of social media will thwart his greater (and great) ambition. Whatever your personal beliefs, there is exactly ZERO doubt that every generation since and including millennials has become exponentially less willing to tolerate this kind of stuff. Musk is going to NEED to both the fresh and enthusiastic intelligence and majority scale support, and not JUST in SpaceX research labs and on site engineering teams either.

He’s going to need IMMENSE, PROLONGED, and RELIABLE political support even as the reins of power are being passed from one generation to the next. If he keeps using Twitter like he has nothing to lose and no one’s support He’s going to find that he really does no longer have anything to lose nor anyones support.

At that point, he’ll have difficulty getting from city to city, much less get to Mars to build CITIES or become a secure, far more survivable interplanetary civilization!

The Metaverse is seeing a surge in real estate prices. Don’t panic

Posted by in categories: education, internet, space

Is Metaverse a boom or a bubble?

There is hardly a day that goes by without a mention of the metaverse. Since Facebook’s brand name changed to Meta, the word has really caught on and everybody wants to be a part of it.

Mark Zuckerberg may have drawn the world’s attention to the metaverse but the digital world has been on the rise for quite some time. Minecraft, an online game, has been around since 2011, where not only does one get to stay in a digital world but also has the tools to build it around themselves. With their versions of the metaverse, what Meta and the others now want to do, is build up these worlds rapidly, so that people can just come and spend their time in there. ## Time is Money.
