"Mother" Robot Builds Evolving Babies | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
A robot sitting all alone in a laboratory has been given some mechanized blocks to play with. A passerby would assume the robot was constructing them like a machine from a factory assembly line. The reality is much more curious: The robot is actually learning with each iteration. As each generation comes and goes, the mini-robots it creates also evolve.

Lux Research: Cost, speed & sustainability benefits of synthetic biology will make it a ‘permanent and growing aspect' of flavors market | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Synthetic biology will become a “permanent and growing aspect of the flavors & fragrances landscape” predicts a new report from Lux Research, which says the approach is more sustainable than traditional techniques such as synthesizing flavors from petrochemicals, or devoting vast tracts of land to growing plants containing minuscule levels of target compounds.

Futuristic electronics one step nearer

Futuristic electronics one step nearer | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
When researchers dream about electronics of the future, they more or less dream of pouring liquids into a beaker, stirring them together and decanting a computer out onto the table. This field of research is known as self-assembling molecular electronics. But, getting chemical substances to self-assemble into electronic components is just as complicated as it sounds. The secret behind the breakthrough is... Soap.
