Walking, legged robots may excel at climbing over obstacles, but wheels are still more efficient for travelling over smooth ground. That’s why engineers at ETH Zurich have added powered wheels to their existing ANYmal quadruped robot.
Using tiny robots to deliver drugs is promising pathway when it comes to limiting side effects and increasing effectiveness, and some take a more theatrical approach than others. Scientists at Purdue University have come to the party with a back-flipping microbot that can tumble its way through the colon to release its payload when desired, all while being controlled externally by a magnetic field.
There’s really nobody in the ebike world I can think of that makes bikes like Nireeka. These guys aren’t interested in stealth, or retro, or making bikes that look like anyone else’s. They work exclusively with their own carbon-fiber frames, which feature strangely flowing sci-fi designs with twisting edges and curves and angles in a style of their very own.
AeroVironment has unveiled its latest loitering missile unmanned aircraft system for the US Army and other customers. Based on the Switchblade 300, which was deployed with US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2011, the Switchblade 600 is larger with increased capabilities.
Flexible electronics have opened up some interesting possibilities when it comes to wearable sensors that can be applied to the skin, taking the form of tattoo-like films and sleeves that monitor various aspects of human health. Scientists at Penn State University have now developed one they say can be safely printed directly onto the skin, where it can track things like body temperature and blood oxygen levels, before being washed off once the job is done.

As another Columbus Day is upon us, we are reminded again why the loony left is so aptly named and why we describe them as “low information.”
We all know Columbus didn’t just innocently “sail the ocean blue in 1492.” We all know it should be: “Columbus came in with the tide, for the sole purpose of Genocide.”
We know Ferdinand and Isabella said: “So Chris – we hear you want to sail off and discover a new world or something.” And Columbus said: “Nah – I thought I’d go kill some Injuns.” “Great Idea – here’s some cash for the trip.”
And for this reason, leftists across the nation have been protesting the celebration of this murderer. Instead of Columbus Day, many cities and enclaves of higher learning have begun making the politically correct change to “Indigenous People’s Day, and
First Peoples Day.” A few years ago Seattle made the switch to “a holiday that will honor and celebrate the cultural contributions of Native Americans.” Hooray for Indigenous People! Boo for genocidal European illegal immigrant interlopers!
Last year, we reported on the Noyer, which, like all Minimaliste’s tiny houses, is built to handle extremes in heat and cold. The Canadian firm has now unveiled an updated take on the model with the Noyer V4. Its owner is an engineer who’s used to living on boats and the interior design reflects his input, with a focus on shoehorning in as much storage as possible. The home also offers increased living space and provides a well-stocked kitchen with plenty of appliances.
