This machete is controlled by a plant yielding a robot arm

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

What does this mean for the field of robotics?

Some inventions are so strange they simply cannot help but catch the eye. Such is the case with David Bowen’s plant machete, first reported by designboom.


Robotics have come a long way as this project of an arm being controlled by the electric noises produced by a plant. Could this application be scaled up to allow for brain-controlled movement?

Why Block Coding is the Best Thing to Happen to Junior Coders?

Posted by in categories: entertainment, innovation

Block coding converts text-based software code into a visual block format. It helps reduce probable errors. It is used to construct games, apps, and other programs. Users just need to drag and drop visual block coding representations of text-based code into the code editor. Blocks are chunks of instructions a user leverages to create their invention. Sprites can move and turn themselves and other sprites. The sprite can be taken a few steps forward or turned by a few degrees. They can be moved to the right or left with just one block. Blocks are used to change the form of a sprite. They can make the sprite think or talk or do anything. It can dress them up differently or the scale or graphic effects of a sprite. Kids can also use sound blocks are add audio effects to a tale or game. They can also adjust sound effects by varying the pitch and changing the depth of different sounds.

Syntax-free programming

Block-based coding doesn’t involve complex syntax. You can focus on areas that seem more complex and need more attention. The best thing about syntax-free programming is that it helps avoid minor syntax errors.

DeepMind scientists win $3 million ‘Breakthrough Prize’ for AI that predicts every protein’s structure

Posted by in categories: innovation, robotics/AI

Scientists from Google DeepMind have been awarded a $3 million prize for developing an artificial intelligence (AI) system that has predicted how nearly every known protein folds into its 3D shape.

One of this year’s Breakthrough Prizes in Life Sciences went to Demis Hassabis, the co-founder and CEO of DeepMind, which created the protein-predicting program known as AlphaFold, and John Jumper, a senior staff research scientist at DeepMind, the Breakthrough Prize Foundation announced (opens in new tab) Thursday (Sept. 22).

Europe’s new reusable spacecraft is more like a ‘large Crew Dragon’ than Starship

Posted by in categories: innovation, space travel

SUSIE’s vertical landing capabilities draw comparisons to SpaceX’s Starship. Europe’s not quite there yet, but it’s a step in the right direction.

French aerospace giant ArianeGroup revealed a new concept for a reusable upper-stage spacecraft called Smart Upper Stage for Innovative Exploration, or SUSIE.
