Clarence | MSRE, LEED GA's curator insight, June 14, 1:57 PM

Here's an interesting graphic of the total area of solar panels needed to power the entire world.  Surprisingly, the total area needed is relatively small compared to the world's land area.  

 

As battery storage technology improves and the cost of solar panels goes down, we can transition to solar power as a primary source of energy.

wow ! the revolution of 3D home printing and shared plans ( Open source)  is just a reality now ! print an Arm form my disabled brother !  #Rifkin #antifragile #agile

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 20, 11:44 AM

The arena of prosthetic limbs is one of many examples of the way 3D printing and other increasingly accessible DIY technologies are helping drive innovation. From fashionable wear on the runway at Maker Faire Bay Area to Nicolas Huchet’s adaptation of the InMoov arm for his own hand, printed prosthetics are beginning to flood what was once a highly expensive medical device market with DIY options that are not only affordable, but customizable and even fun.

Exiii’s version focuses on precision, as well as open hardware — Wevolver maintains a repository of the project plans and code. “I get pretty furious when I think about how patents are preventing people from accessing technology that will change their lives,” says Norris, whose grandmother had a paralyzed right arm. “She used to joke all the time about getting a robot arm,” he says. “It just kind of stuck with me, it’s been something I’ve always dreamed about.”

Underwater Mini-Robots School Like Fish and Share Knowledge

Underwater Mini-Robots School Like Fish and Share Knowledge | Smart devices and technology solutions | Scoop.it
The European Union CoCoRo research consortium has been developing three varieties of autonomous underwater robots that school together like fish. By doing so, the little bots can share and learn from each others' "knowledge" of their environment, acting as a collective cognitive system.

*A partir de abril de 2011, la Unión Europea CoCoRo (Colectivo Cognitive Robots) consorcio de investigación ha desarrollado tres variedades de robots submarinos autónomos que hacen escuela juntos como peces. De esta manera, los pequeños robots pueden compartir y aprender de "conocimiento" cada otros de su entorno, actuando como un sistema cognitivo colectivo que es más inteligente que cualquiera de sus partes individuales.

Los robots se comunican entre sí a través de una función de intermitente LED, utilizando la electrónica de a bordo, como los sistemas de visión por ordenador, brújulas y acelerómetros para encontrar su camino alrededor de los ambientes acuáticos.

Utilizando un algoritmo inspirado en el comportamiento de la agrupación de las abejas (no pescados!), Pueden buscar a otros de su especie y luego asentarse juntos alrededor de una ubicación de la base central, tomando conciencia del  creciente tamaño de su grupo a medida que lleguen más robots. Entonces pueden dejar ese grupo para ir por sus propias misiones, posteriormente, volver a compartir sus hallazgos con el grupo.

En un experimento, grupos de dos tipos de los robots - "Jeff" robots y robots "Lirio" - se pusieron en una piscina para localizar un avión estrellado simulado (en realidad un grupo de imanes, que se utiliza para simular campo electro-magnético del avión) . Mientras que los robots Lily patrullaban la superficie, el Jeffs fue más profundo.

Una vez que uno de los robots Jeff situados los imanes, lo que solía sus LEDs para indicar la otra Jeffs, que respondió mediante la recopilación de alrededor de ella sobre el "restos". Los robots Lily observaron este comportamiento desde arriba, y respondieron formando un racimo en la superficie en la misma ubicación.

Los robots también se han probado en el océano abierto en Italia, donde, según informes, fueron capaces de agruparse y patrullar a pesar de las olas, las corrientes y el agua salada corrosiva.

Aunque el proyecto CoCoRo concluyó en septiembre pasado, los investigadores apenas están empezando a conocer los resultados. Se espera que la tecnología podría finalmente encontrar su camino en los robots acuáticos escolares autónomos utilizados para el monitoreo ecológico, reconocimiento, u otras aplicaciones.

 

Algunos de los robots puede verse en acción, en el vídeo a continuación.
