Technology! We cannot pass even a single day without a touch of modern technology that is a blessing for us. Here are some technologies that will revolutionize world
Micro swimmer Robot, the robot that flows through the veins
The potential of this American innovation in medicine is enormous. Stop surgery to unclog arteries or precisely drop a drug into the patient’s body! Researchers at the University of Drexler, Philadelphia, have developed a technology that allows nano-robots to travel in the human body: the Micro swimmer Robot. Concretely, iron nanoparticles controlled by a magnetic flux can assemble and navigate the veins. A major surgical advance that could be implemented in the next four years.
IKO Creative Prosthetic System, the toy prosthesis
Colombian Carlos Torres (from IKO) has devised a customizable child prosthesis compatible with Lego elements (with whom he has formed a partnership). Thanks to 3D printing and a computer program, children who have had an amputation of the arm or hand can infinitely modulate their prosthesis with the famous multi-colored bricks (shapes, colors, accessories …). The created object becomes fun and plays down the handicap with hands backhoe, cranes, spaceships…
Self-teaching 3D-printed robots, the robot that self-repairs
Not far from the myth of artificial intelligence and the emancipation of robots, here is the robot that learns and self-corrects. Teams from the University of Oslo (Norway) have designed a program that allows robots to adapt to different environmental changes. Equipped with this software, robots evaluate their performance, optimize their adaptation and even self-repair. After diagnosing his needs, the robot with a 3D printer makes the parts it needs. An innovation to exploit during space exploration or natural disasters.
Todai Robot Project, the bachelor’s robot
After two failures in 2013 and 2014, he (finally) got his baccalaureate with a grade above the national average and can enter the University of Tokyo. But he is not a bachelor like the others. Today is a robot. The Japanese National Institute of Computing, supported by Fujitsu, has managed to develop an artificial intelligence software that can compete with students, not on simple multiple choice questions but with the same exam as for humans (redaction). , analysis,) His strengths: he understands human language (history, French) and mathematics. His weak point: must improve in physics, still too abstract material for an electronic brain.
AscTec Firefly, the autonomous drone
The German company Ascending Technologies has developed a drone capable of self-steering. Equipped with six propellers and ultra-light mini-cameras (Real Sense) for a 360-degree 3D vision, the Firefly, is able to evaluate distances alone, to avoid obstacles (house, bridges, other drones …) and change its trajectory in real time. The innovation was brought in early January 2016 by Intel, which sees the potential uses of drones for deliveries, inspection of power lines, agriculture or the army.
Amino, the biotech Tamagotchi
Make your own perfume, beer or grow bacteria? This is the project of the Canadian Julie Legault with its laboratory of microorganisms accessible to all. The Amino organic material kit, designed by MIT, makes living cells and their living conditions like a domestic animal. Objective: to better understand scientific advances through simple experiments. Powered by the US crowd funding platform Indiegogo, the pocket laboratory Amino is available for 700 euros.
Wonolo, job on demand
Halfway between Tinder and Tripadvisor, Wonolo (Work Now locally) connects freelancers and employers (company or individual). A simple description of the job or tasks, a telephone interview, no diploma required. A scoring system carried out at the end of the mission on the employer and employee side makes it possible to fix the next remuneration. The more the job has been appreciated and the more the employee has been up to it, the more the salary valuation increases. An exclusion limit is set at three negative opinions. An innovation made in … The USA.
