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.

Visiting a breathtaking new world 🌏 Exoplanet Travel Video

 

By: Mathieu Stern

Published on Jun 14, 2017

I had the incredible chance to be the first filmmaker to ever visit MS-83, a newly discovered exoplanet 34 light years away from Earth, because it was not terraformed yet, you will need a respiratory mask to walk it’s lands.
Breathing MS-83 air could lead to color blindness and the loss of eyebrows hair.
I had the chance to follow a visitor for a hike between the desert and the blue forests of MS-83, it is a fascinating experience that i will never forget.

If you come to this planet, please do not take any living or mineral element with you on your trip back, this planet is classified and need to be protected.

***
It took almost 1 year and 4 trips around the world to create this new travel destination by mixing footage i shot in :
– Norway
– France
– Portugal
– Spain

The 2 first images in space comes from the Nasa public domaine video library, all the rest of the footage was shot by me.

please dont forget to like the video if you enjoyed it it can really help me do more stuff like that.

Using the power of engineering and brilliant inventions to save lives!!! Great times collab-ing with Bill and Melinda Gates! You should check out the Gates Annual Letter here: http://b-gat.es/2lhhtmJ

Pre-order a paper microscope here- https://www.foldscope.com/order

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.

Extrapolate from Johan Rijpma on Vimeo.

Extrapolate from johan rijpma on Vimeo.

In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way.

This work was created with support from ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016” and the Mondriaan Fund.
