Robot band!! (Would have thought that robot bands were into Metal...)
Love the smart stuff. Who's in?
More press on our (r)evolution. (The battery is on the verge of being inserted.....)
Some press out there today about this wild, wired, sorta post-apocalyptic ride we're gonna take together!
Reservations already available! Bleep blorp, did someone say room service?
"In ten or 15 years social media will probably just be a 3D hologram of a Coca-Cola bottle angrily shouting at us to buy Coca-Cola, then rewarding us with a meme .GIF if we buy Coca-Cola, or shocking us with a high-voltage electrical current if we don't."
If you think it, they will come..... The merging of digital and real experience -- let the games begin!
Robert Kinoshita, designer of the B9 on "Lost In Space" (Danger Will Robinson!) has an obituary in the Los Angeles Times today.... which got me to thinking about how much that particular robot danced around in my childhood imagination.... (Many years later, here we are, dreaming up an Android Revolution!)
Here's the best youtube clip I could find highlighting the B9 (and some of the wondrous-weirdness of the show!)
This week so far at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas:
Robots that you can wear.
Rollkers, shoes with moving wheels to make you walk faster; Belty, a smart belt that adjusts to your belly as you move; bracelet drones, and much more! Check it.
It's this thing called "deep learning". The robot learns information through several different representations of the idea and layers them through pattern recognition, adding depth to the information....
The idea is, get the robots to understand complicated ideas deeply and they can do things like...cook!
Happy 2015, everyone! Welcome to the future!
They're all incredible. Especially Bina48 - who's got memories, morals and a personality. Check it.
BitTorrent versus Dingbat Humorless Hacker A#$holes! We're big fans of BitTorrent's bundle -- a flat-out kick-ass way of rewardingly distributing creative content. (Oh, yes, now that you ask: "Children of the Machine" is really looking forward to debuting on BitTorrent!)
Check it out, folks - huge advances in cyborg technology! John Hopkins University developed robot arms that this guy can control with his thoughts. Imagine that!
Today it's the arms. And by 2031?
