Carlos Fosca's insight:

"A research team from North Carolina State University has developed insect-like cyborgs, or “biobots”, which can penetrate foreign environments like collapsed buildings.They release a swarm of biobots, such as remotely-controlled cockroaches, which are equipped with electronic sensors. These robotic insects then move about randomly and sensors are released which signal researchers via radio waves whenever biobots got close to each other. This gives first responders a good idea of the layout in a previously unmapped area. "

Vision for the Future of Internet Power: 100 Percent Renewable Energy

Vision for the Future of Internet Power: 100 Percent Renewable Energy | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
This week, HP, a cofounder of BSR’s Future of Internet Power initiative, joined a growing list of technology companies that are making bold commitments to renewable energy. Following work with BSR to evaluate renewable-power options in Texas, the company has commissioned a massive new project: Over the next 12 years, the company will purchase 112 megawatts from a wind farm developed by SunEdison. HP will use that energy to power its internal IT operations globally.

Founded in 2012, the Future of Internet Power, which comprises the world’s most influential internet companies—including  Adobe, Autodesk, eBay, Etsy, Facebook, HP, LinkedIn, Salesforce, and Symantec—is aiming to power the internet with 100 percent renewables. We are doing this by providing a place for internet companies to collaborate with peers, suppliers, utilities, and power developers to accelerate the deployment of renewables.

UC Berkeley Engineers Devise 3D-Printed 'Smart Cap' to Check Safety of Milk, Juice

UC Berkeley Engineers Devise 3D-Printed 'Smart Cap' to Check Safety of Milk, Juice | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Engineers at the University of California-Berkeley have developed a so-called “smart cap” using 3D-printed plastic and containing embedded electronics. They recently demonstrated that the device can wirelessly monitor the freshness of milk, according to an article published Monday, July 20, 2015, in the online international journal Microsystems & Nanoengineering.

3D additive manufacturing (AM) techniques can make 3D resistors, capacitors, and inductors, along with circuits and passive wireless sensors. These structures are injected with silver particles and solidified to form metallic elements and interconnects.
