Untethered employees | Human and Technology | Scoop.it

"The landscape of the workplace has changed dramatically, even in the past year. The same forces that have shifted the barriers to remote work—the ubiquity of Wi-Fi networks and high-speed cellular service, the move from boxy desktop computers to sleek laptops and tablets, and the migration from traditional landlines to mobile phones—are also changing the way we work within our office walls.

Charting (coastal) culture

"This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The team is based at the University of Texas at Dallas."

Artificial muscles made from fishing line - Plastics the mag | Human and Technology | Scoop.it

Stranded nylon or polyethylene wire, which contracts when heated, could help manufacture inexpensive and powerful artificial muscles.

Prototypes of humanoid robots are generally fitted with systems inspired by the human body. For instance, artificial muscles are used to provide mobility. An international team led by Ray Baughman, from the Texas Institute of Nanotechnology, has just demonstrated that fishing line is an excellent substitute for mimicking the action of organic muscles.
