How Virtual Reality Can Change the World by Making Us More Empathetic Towards the Plight of Our Fellow Humans

In this TED Talk, Chris Milk talks about how virtual reality can be used to connect us to the world’s most vulnerable people in a profound way: “we become more compassionate; we become more empathetic; we become more connected; and ultimately we become more human.”

Has “Science” Been Co-opted by Corporations to Squash Alternative Views?

Has “Science” Been Co-opted by Corporations to Squash Alternative Views?

The term “science” has grown to be more than an area of study, seeking to hypothesize and theorize about our world. It has become more than a framework for exploration. In its purest form, it has no “limits” and could theoretically embrace non-material, metaphysical aspects of our existence. Yet, in our modern age, science has become corporatized and dogmatic- more worried about pursuing money than about pursuing what makes our universe “tick”.

Watch Cool New Fire Extinguisher Douse Flames with Sound Waves

Two inventive Engineering Seniors from George Mason University, Viet Tran and Seth Robertson have created a fire extinguisher that uses low-frequency sound waves to douse a blaze. They believe the technology will be good in normal households to put out a small kitchen fire and with development, may also be effective on a larger scale with swarm robotics fighting fires that could be extremely dangerous to human fire fighters.

Robots Threaten to Replace Manufacturing Workers

Robots Threaten to Replace Manufacturing Workers

Industrial robots could have a huge impact on the manufacturing industry and some of its workers, according to a new study by two economics professors, Georg Graetz from Uppsala University and Guy Michaels from the London School of Economics. The study measured the use of industrial robots and how it has changed from 1993-2007 to find that industrial robots increase labor productivity, total factor productivity, and wages. Could this reduce the employment of low and middle skilled workers?

Boeing Patents ‘Star Wars’-Style Force Field Technology  That Deflects Explosive Shock Waves

A new patent granted to aircraft, defense and security company Boeing is taking its cues from science fiction. Just like the glowing energy shields seen protecting troops, machines and even spacecraft in Star Wars and Star Trek, the design — named “Method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc” — uses energy to deflect potential damage.

If the Moon Landings Were Real, Then Why is NASA Stumped by This?

Were the Apollo moon landings faked by the government to gain political advantage at a time when it was not technologically possible to land a man on the moon then bring him home safely? Many alternative researchers and skeptics of government and cultural narratives have put together a substantial and rather captivating case that the moon landings were faked with the help of emerging television and film technologies.

The Mindblowing Evolution of Humanoid Robots Including the “iCub” That Has a “Sense of Self”

The Mindblowing Evolution of Humanoid Robots Including the “iCub” That Has a “Sense of Self”

In the age of computers, things evolve exponentially. In just a few generations robots have gone from a scientific fantasy, to a playful curiosity, to entering the battlefield to replace and/or augment their human counterparts. We are already at the point where we have to consider what the next step of robotic evolution looks like. According to robotics engineers, it appears that at some point in the near future the next step could very well be whatever the next generation robot chooses for itself. Just late last year it was posited that the humanoid robot was poised to take a leap from a mere facsimile of human behavior to one that futurists suggest will not only walk like a human, but will possess self awareness, as well as a full range of high-tech computational spectrum analysis and capabilities . . . and emotions. That day has apparently now arrived. The chronicle below charts the advancement from the rudimentary, through the downright creepy, and toward today where, according to the final video from New Scientist, we see that the new generation of iCub humanoid robot can in fact determine its own goals and exhibit emotional behavior and language skills that so far have been exclusively human.

Detection of Mini Black Holes At the LHC Could Indicate Parallel Universes In Extra Dimensions

The possibility that other universes exist beyond our own universe is tantalizing, but seems nearly impossible to test. Now a group of physicists has suggested that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest particle collider in the world, may be able to uncover the existence of parallel universes, should they exist.
