Instead of implants under the skin that turned Steve Austin into the $6 million man, the Soft Exosuit fits outside the user’s body. It boosts a soldier’s ability to walk longer distances carrying heavy gear with less fatigue and improved resistance to injury. Exosuits are a new class of applications for soft robotics. Soft, elastic sensors in an adjustable suit made of nylon, polyester, and spandex provide well-timed bursts of power intended to reduce the energy a soldier uses to walk. The suit mimics the action of the wearer’s leg muscles and tendons. Sensors embedded in the insoles of a boot send a signal to
Angkor Wat and the surrounding area is an ancient 9th century Khmer construct of temples in Cambodia. LiDar is a 20th century invention that is probing secrets hidden deep within the surrounding jungle. LiDar (light detection and ranging), is an optical remote-sensing technique that transmits laser beams toward a target returning extremely accurate geospatial x,y,z measurements. Aerial surveys half a century ago used film cameras and slide rules. We’ve come a long way since then. The technology is discovering that there is more to Angkor Wat than meets the eye. The UNESCO site is an archaeologist’s dream in a country that thrived as part of an empire
Move over MakerBot. Another company’s 3D printer will be looking down on you from the International Space Station (ISS). A small startup, or up start company if you prefer, that came out of Singularity University Graduate Studies Program got NASA’s attention. The result is a 3D printer whirling around in space ready to meet its final tests aboard the space craft. Speakers on the CES 2014 panel The Future of 3D printing never predicted this momentous event. Made In Space, founded less than five years ago, boosted by more than half a million dollars from a Small Business Innovation Research grant from NASA, has achieved its goal
Philae is the name given to the Rosetta mission lander of the European Space Agency (ESA). It’s preparing to land on a comet 405 million kilometers from Earth. The tongue-twisting name of that comet is 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Five potential landing sites had been suggested. The press was notified of the final choice in a briefing today in Paris. Site “J,” judged to be the least risky landing location, is on the smaller, 4 km wide lobe, of Comet 67P. This space voyager will have a visitor on November 11 if all goes as planned. The alternative site “C” would place the lander on the larger section
The University of Rochester Medical Center Smartphone-PD study is partnering Android smartphones with Parkinson’s disease research professionals. Your voice recorded via the digital microphone in your phone, run through software developed by the Non-Linearity and Complexity Research Group at Aston University coupled with machine learning can quantify where a person lies between health and disease. This news comes from Dr. Max Little of Aston in Birmingham, England. The recent revelation that Robin Williams was diagnosed with Parkinson`s has again brought attention to the disease. Research has shown a definite connection between Parkinson’s disease (PD) a degenerative motor system disorder and speech impairment. PD causes tremors,

Marine biologists studying offshore aquaculture, such as the Catalina Sea Ranch mussel farm, need real-time data to conduct collaborative and transparent research. Catalina Sea Ranch (CSR) is the first offshore shellfish Ranch in US Federal Waters. It is using technology to monitor the environment and provide security surveillance. CSR uses a buoy staged with Verizon equipment to collect a variety of marine data. The data is sent over Verizon’s 4G LTE network to a database running on top of Verizon’s cloud technology. The data can be accessed via smartphones, tablets or computers in the hands of CSR team members, independent scientists, regulators, and researchers. Philip
In the five years since GlobalFoundries broke ground in Malta, Saratoga County, New York for their Fab 8, they have exceeded their promise of job creation in the community. Instead of its initial projection of 1,200 new jobs, the company is responsible for approximately 2,400, including construction of the Technology Development Center on its existing 223 acre campus. The direct jobs have a trickle down effect resulting in 3,000 indirect jobs according to a study by Dr. Everett Ehrlich, business economist. GlobalFoundries also made a capital investment of $6.9 billion, plus the building of the new Technology Development Center which increases that number by $2.1
What makes this mouse unique is that it has what Logitech calls Darkfield Laser Tracking. This feature enables it to track on glass. How often someone mouses on their windshield is uncertain, however. The mouse is advertised to work anywhere, on anything, and with anything. Anywhere MX works with old and new systems from Windows XP through Vista – if anyone is still using this failed operating system – to Windows 7, 8 and RT. Mac compatibility wasn’t overlooked in the design either. The Unifying receiver connects up to 6 compatible devices. Logitech offers several wireless Unifying mouse choices from $29.99 to the top Performance MX

Alan Mulally has been a frequent keynote speaker at International CES in Las Vegas. His entre was via the automobile industry which had become very computer oriented. In 2010, he brought Ford employees on stage who were responsible for MyFord, a new in-car communications and entertainment system first installed on the Ford Edge. MyFord is now in version 3.6. Mulally who became president and CEO of Ford in September 2006, took a seat on Google’s board of directors this month bringing auto industry experience to the search engine giant’s expanding horizon.
