Another Look At Rethink Robotics' Baxter

Another Look At Rethink Robotics' Baxter | Important technologies | Scoop.it

A few days ago, I posted a piece about Rethink Robotics game changing robot named Baxter. While the content was great. The piece didn't really give the reader a good feel for the robots humanoid form. So, here's a better look at Baxter...

Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

More human like robots are slowly being built for the work industry, many people would argue this technology is taking jobs away from human workers. I believe this technology is beneficial as robots can become more efficient, reliable work longer and don't take any sick days. As robots improve in quality, and productions, so will the rest of the technology industry

The battery tech that could change electric cars #vehicletech #cartech #electriccars #technology


Via Techstore
Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

The problem with current electric cars is the amount of batteries that need to be installed to travel only a small difference. VW is developing new battery technology that is proving to up up to three and four times the amount of efficiency in electric car batteries. This technology will become important in the next ten years are fuel supplies for cars could potentially be running low and prices be extremely high. This is why a there will soon be a need for electric cars.

Important Future areas of Solar Cell research - Prof. Geoffrey Gordon

Solar Energy Innovations - Talk 2 Important Future areas of Solar Cell research.
Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

With the amount of carbon and pollution being created in the current times and the amount of energy and coal being used, new resources need to be developed for greener and safer ways to generate electricity. One of the main development and mainstream design is new solar panel. This will prove to be an important development in the future

Review Article: Immobilized Molecules Using Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology

Review Article: Immobilized Molecules Using Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology | Important technologies | Scoop.it
Immobilized molecules using biomaterials and nanobiotechnology is a very interesting topic that touching almost all aspects of our life. It uses the sciences of biology, chemistry, physics, materials engineering and computer science to develop instruments and products that are at the cutting edge of some of today’s most promising scientific frontiers. In this review article, the author based on his experience in this arena has tried to focus on some of the supports for im-mobilization; the most important molecules to be immobilized such as DNA, cells, enzymes, metals, polysaccharides, etc and their applications in medicine, food, drug, water treatment, energy and even in aerospace. He specified a special section on what is new in the arena of supports and technologies used in enzyme immobilization and finally a recommendation by the author for future work with a special attention to up-to-date references.
Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

(Open PDF file) New nanobiotechnology will be one of the largest new changes in the future of medicine and human biology research. This new technology can allow human made nano chips to be a new way to solve and cure some diseases. This is not the only use of nanobiotechnology as it is also slowly being used in other areas of research including the production of biodiesel and even exploring life on other planets. This is why nanobiotechnology and new Immobilization technology will be an important research area in the future

Residential solar panels become more cost effective option

Residential solar panels become more cost effective option | Important technologies | Scoop.it
The cost of solar panels has dropped to half the cost from 2008, and are 100 times cheaper from the 1970’s. With these sharp cuts in cost, solar panels are becoming a cheaper and more viable option for homeowners looking to save money and energy.

Via Organic Social Media
Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

With the changing prices of solar panel and new technology is being introduced so solar can become more widespread is a step forward for cleaner energy production. If this technology is heavily researched in the future for even cheaper and more efficient solar panels, it has the potential to solve power and pollution problems of the current world

Electric Cars Alone Won't Drive a Drop in U.S. Emissions: Study

Electric Cars Alone Won't Drive a Drop in U.S. Emissions: Study | Important technologies | Scoop.it
Electric cars alone won’t yield needed cuts in greenhouse gas, new research says. Policymakers need to cut carbon throughout the economy, especially from power plants.
Ben Hodgkinson's insight:

Although electric cars reduce the amount of dependence of fuel required for cars and transport vehicles, it will increase the amount of total electricity required to power all these new vehicles. This is why smarter and more power efficient cars need to be an important research topic and this goes hand in hand with renewable energy resources like solar panels research.
