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

Read the published paper on the paper centrifuge, its cool- http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016…

7:54– Special song written just for me- Lincoln Hoppe, http://lincolnhoppe.com/

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.

The robot’s lifelike movement catches the attention of a real dog. The uncanny uncanine valley. This is the latest quadruped robot from Google’s Boston Dynamics group, and the only one in civilian hands. Another Video: https://youtu.be/q2gehrAhflQ Photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvets… And I revisited my post on the Google Master Plan, and sure enough, we see Robots → Skynet → Terminator → Google Security → User Happiness https://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvets…
