MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach

MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Researchers have invented an origami robot that, true to its name, unfolds in your stomach.


If that sounds gross to you, that's because it totally is, but it could be a game-changer in the medical community due to its ability to remove batteries from the human body, according to a paper recently presented at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

MIT computer experts unveil RFID chip technology that is 'impossible to hack'

MIT computer experts unveil RFID chip technology that is 'impossible to hack' | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Cutting-edge research from Massachusetts Institute of Technology makes bold claims about RFID technology.


Now, the researchers claim their cutting-edge findings would mean that security concerns regarding RFID systems become a thing of the past. According to Chiraag Juvekar, an electrical engineering graduate at MIT and a co-author of the research, the new chip has been designed to curb so-called 'side-channel attacks' that can be used to steal the encryption keys contained in RFID technology.

Watch This Terrifying Cheetah Robot Jump Over Hurdles | Robotics

Watch This Terrifying Cheetah Robot Jump Over Hurdles | Robotics | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
WHEN YOU COMBINE robots and cheetahs with military funding, you’re bound to end up with something incredible. Robotics engineers from MIT have spent over five years developing a battery-powered quadruped robot capable of running as fast as a human being. And now they’ve trained that robot to jump over hurdles—autonomously.

In a video released today, the team from MIT shows off their DARPA-funded, four-legged harbinger of terror approaching and clearing obstacles up to 18 inches tall while maintaing an average speed of 5 mph. The 70-lb robot (roughly the same weight as a female cheetah) estimates the height, size, and distance of objects in its path, and adjusts its approach to prepare a jump and safe landing—all without slowing down.

MIT's Crazy Materials Could Make for Self-Assembling Ikea Furniture

MIT's Crazy Materials Could Make for Self-Assembling Ikea Furniture | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
As its name suggests, the Self-Assembly Lab focuses on making things that can, well, self-assemble. It has created a series of small wood planks, for instance, that fold into a toy elephants when exposed to moisture. Tibbets and collaborators Christophe Guberan and Erik Demaine are working on clothing that could morph in response to the weather. In the future, the Lab’s research could make way for Ikea furniture that assembles itself with a splash of water—no Allen wrench required.

Bert Vogelstein’s Liquid Biopsy Blood Test for DNA Could Stop Cancer | MIT Technology Review

Bert Vogelstein’s Liquid Biopsy Blood Test for DNA Could Stop Cancer | MIT Technology Review | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
He watched his brother die from a cancer that no drug could cure. Now one of the world’s most renowned cancer researchers says it’s time for Plan B.


Now imagine you could see these mutations—see cancer itself—in a vial of blood. Nearly every type of cancer sheds DNA into the bloodstream, and Vogelstein’s laboratory at Johns ­Hopkins has developed a technique, called a “liquid biopsy,” that can find the telltale genetic material.
