Elon Musk claims green light for Hyperloop linking NYC and Washington

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 00:01:46 +0000

(image)

Could Elon Musk's tunneling company go from nothing to responsible for one of the biggest infrastructure projects the US has ever seen, inside the space of a year no less? Maybe. The tech tycoon today claimed he has received verbal approval from the government to build a high-speed underground transport link between New York and Washington, cutting travel time between the cities to just 29 minutes.

Humans enter a Vulcan-like mind meld when conversing

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 21:25:11 +0000

(image)

In the Star Trek universe, Vulcans would sometimes bust out one of their most impressive abilities: the mind meld. In this maneuver, the Vulcan would form a mental bond with someone else and the two would sync up to the point that they basically shared one consciousness. Researchers at the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain, and Language (BCBL) in Spain have now shown that humans do something a bit similar – just by having a conversation.

(image)

Google Street View can take you to the some of the most remote regions of our planet, but the developers of the first-person mapping service see no reason to stop there. Starting today, you can use the tool to explore the International Space Station (ISS), the first time Street View has ventured beyond the Earth's surface.

Study: Blood test for Alzheimer’s reveals harmful plaques in the brain

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 18:58:09 +0000

(image)

One key front in the battle against Alzheimer's is early detection of the disease. Breakthroughs in this area could open up more treatment options that are less imposing on the patient, and researchers have just reported a promising advance in the form of a blood test that could reveal signs of Alzheimer's long before more obvious symptoms appear.

3D-printed nylon microphone seeks heavy metal singer

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 14:17:39 +0000

(image)

Challenged to design and 3D-print an unusual microphone, Olaf Diegel of ODD Guitars decided to create something that a player of his Spider guitar might use. The Skeletor that came out of the SLS machine is a perfect stylistic match for the voice of heavy metal himself, Ozzy Osbourne, or equally suited to the king of voodoo rock, Screaming Jay Hawkins.

"Empowering" robots could replace the Three Laws of Robotics

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 08:45:21 +0000

(image)

Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics are versatile and simple enough that they still persist 75 years after he first coined them. But our current world, where robots and AI agents are cleaning our houses, driving our cars and working alongside us, is vastly different than even the most forward-thinking sci-fi writers could imagine. To make sure the guidelines for programming artificial intelligence cast as wide a net as possible, experts from the University of Hertfordshire have detailed a new system they call "Empowerment."

Gravitational anomaly from the beginning of the universe observed on Earth

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 07:16:00 +0000

(image)

When the universe was just a few microseconds old, it existed as a strange soupy substance called quark-gluon plasma (QGP), which exhibits a whole host of unusual quantum effects. Now, for the first time, IBM researchers have observed a gravitational anomaly in earthly materials, which was previously only thought to occur in QGP in deep space or just after the Big Bang.

Type 1 diabetes vaccine moving to human trials in Finland

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 05:05:31 +0000

(image)

It has long been hypothesized that viral infections play a significant role in the development of type 1 diabetes. Researchers in Finland have been investigating this connection for over 25 years and now believe they have targeted the particular virus group that can trigger the disease. After developing a prototype vaccine the team is now moving to human clinical trials in 2018.

Stanford's search and rescue snake robot grows into its role

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 03:29:52 +0000

(image)

If you ever find yourself stuck in a disaster zone, your rescuer could take on some unexpected forms, like a drone or a cyborg cockroach – and now we can add a soft robotic snake to the mix. A Stanford team has developed a flexible robot that grows like a vine, squeezing through rubble to find trapped survivors and even delivering water to them.

NASA's Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) XIII simulated deep space mission has ended after a record 45 days and the four-man crew is celebrating by getting some kip. Part of the space agency's Human Research Program (HRP), the crew spent over six weeks in the HERA module at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas carrying out a series of experiments that included a study of the effects of sleep deprivation on astronaut efficiency.

Running not an option for Tyrannosaurus rex

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 01:30:53 +0000

(image)

In good news for anyone coming face to face with a Tyrannosaurus rex, a new study indicates that humans could outrun the fearsome dinosaur. By combining two separate biomechanical computer simulations, scientists at the University of Manchester have concluded that running would have been out of the question, and even the giant meat eater's walking speed would have been limited due to its size and weight.

Fighting Alzheimer's: It's all in how you slice it

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 22:59:23 +0000

(image)

Building on research that identified a rare genetic mutation in Italian people that leads to the early onset of Alzheimer's and one in Icelandic people that delays the onset of the condition, a researcher at the University of British Columbia has discovered that using an enzymatic scissor the right way could stave off the cognitive decline associated with the disease.

Platio integrates solar panels in pedestrian walkways and street furniture

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 16:28:08 +0000

Our roads, pedestrian pathways and street furniture can spend much of their days just sitting there doing nothing. Budapest startup Platio has spent the last couple of years developing a modular, self-contained paving panel that harvests the sun's energy to produce electricity. The panels have recently been rolled out in front of a shopping mall, at a harbor and integrated into outdoor seating.

Pushing quantum particles forward can make them go backward

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 09:52:13 +0000

(image)

If you kick a ball along the ground, it will roll away from you – that's pretty basic science. But the world of quantum mechanics rarely plays by the rules we're used to, and now mathematicians have found that kicking a quantum ball might send it flying toward your foot instead. When a force is applied to them, quantum particles can move in the opposite direction, in an effect known as "backflow."
