Meet Spot, the robot dog that can run, hop and open doors | Marc Raibert

By: TED

Originally published on Aug 14, 2017

That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

Travelling through the past and present to define our future.
Italian culture along with art, architecture, music and food have made Italy great in the eyes of the rest of the world. Have you ever wondered how these masterpieces from the past have shaped today’s present, and how they can continue to be a source of inspiration in the future?

Three hundred years ago, Italy’s “Grand Tour” was a journey made mainly by wealthy young people to experience the beauties and artwork of Italian cities and culture to find that inspiration that revolutionised the modern world. Today Google re-invent it and made for everyone.

Benefits for Humanity: Know Your Water

 

By: NASA Johnson

Originally published on Aug 29, 2016

What if that clear, sparkling stream coming from the ground or a faucet were teeming with contaminants? How would you know?

Whether you live in some remote region of Africa, a high rise in New York City or aboard an orbiting laboratory in space, you need reliable drinking water to survive. You now can check the cleanliness of your water using the mWater app on your mobile phone.

This handy tool, based in part on International Space Station technology, provides a global resource available for free download as an app or usable via the Web browser version of the app on most smart- phones. Governments, health workers and the public all can make use of mWater to record and share water test results. During the first year of the beta release of mWater, more than 1,000 users downloaded it and mapped several thousand water sources.
