Brain Implants Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Mind

Brain Implant Developed In Australia Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Minds

by CHIRPon June 6, 2016
Scientists in Australia are currently in the process of developing an implant that will give paralyzed and heavily disabled patients the ability to control machines through their thoughts as well as monitor and predict seizures. Able to record specific brain activity and function, the tiny implant known as astentrode will eventually be placed into a blood vessel located […]
Tesla Self Driving Collecting 3 Mil Miles Daily

Tesla Is Gathering Twice As Many Miles of Self-Driving Data Every Day Compared To Google’s Entire Atonomous Project

by CHIRPon June 2, 2016
If you combine the total miles driven in autonomous mode by all Tesla Model S and X’s on the road at the moment, you get about 3 million miles a day. That’s about twice the distance that Google’s self-driving car project has done since it’s start. What does this mean? It means that Tesla is collecting a much larger amount of […]

entropy directly linked to time

New Study Suggests That Dark Energy Is The Reason Time Moves Forward

by CHIRPon May 24, 2016
The Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the disorder of a closed system like our universe must always increase, never decrease. Also known as ‘entropy’, it’s the reason that things do no reassemble or come back to life. When objects like stars, our planet and humanity are created, they add energy to the universe. This in turn adds […]

Zapping Clouds With Lasers Could Cool The Planet

Shooting Clouds With Lasers Could Potentially Lower The Planet’s Temperature

by CHIRPon May 22, 2016
Our planets temperature is rising every year. Scientists and thinkers alike have been trying to come up with a way to reverse this trajectory of rising temperatures. It seems that they may have just figured out how to…at east in a small way. Reported in Science Advances, it’s been discovered that zapping tiny ice particles within cirrus clouds breaks them […]
A New Form of Light Has Been Discovered

Physicists Have Discovered A New Form of Light

by CHIRPon May 17, 2016
In order to understand these new findings, it will be best to first explain a little bit about our current understand of light. Most notably ‘Planck’s constant’ and angular momentum. ‘Planck’s constant’ is a physical constant that is the quantum of action, central in quantum mechanics. In simpler words, it’s the link between the energy a photon […]

New Robot Unfolds Once Swallowed And Can Remove Foreign Objects/Patch Wounds

New “Origami” Robot Unfolds Once Swallowed — Successfully Removed A Battery From A Stomach

by CHIRPon May 16, 2016
A team of researchers at MIT (and two other universities) have just invented an ingestible robot that once swallowed can unfold itself in your stomach, potentially healing wounds and removing foreign objects. Unveiled by a group of researchers from MIT, the University of Sheffield and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the capsule can be guided by an external […]
Hyperloop One Has Successfully Done An Open Air Test

The 700 MPH Hyperloop Train Has Just Had It’s First Successful Test

by CHIRPon May 12, 2016
You’ve probably heard of hyperloop in some way or another at this point. Aiming to bet the future of transportation, hyperloop “pods” will travel in vacuum tubes at upwards of 700mph. This is achievable due to the absence of air in a vacuum, which allows for zero drag/friction. Just this pas day, a startup called ‘Hyperloop […]

DARPA Putting Up 146 Million To Anyone Who Designs A Viable Reuseable Rocket

by CHIRPon May 2, 2016
DARPA (The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military, has asked the aerospace industry for help. They’ve put out a request for designs of a small, first-stage rocket/ship of sorts that can launch into space, deploy a 3,000 to 5,000 pound payload and return to land […]
