Wow, one year later ....

The World’s First Condom-Powered 3D Printed Hand Gun is Created

"The condoms act as the spring mechanism and the firing pin is a roofing nail, but aside from those elements, every part of this handgun is 3D printed"

Watch This Robot Learning to Play with Legos Like a Kid

If you’ve ever watched a child trying to fit a shape into a cut-out, you might get a flash of déjà vu in the following robot video. It takes some repeated smashing together of mismatching configurations, but eventually—the bot figures things out all on its own. No additional programming required.

The lid screwing is quite impressive. Especially if autonomously learned.

Interesting read ...
The rapidly growing field of transhumanism—an international social movement whose highest immediate priority is overcoming human death via science and technology—is facing a colossal challenge. About 85 percent of the world’s population believes in life after death, and much of that population is perfectly okay with dying because it gives them an afterlife with their perceived deity or deities—something transhumanists often refer to as “deathist”...

"First, note the anonymity, even though this isn't a leak or a reporter sniffing out a story and needing to protect sources. This is a "briefing organized by the White House" where they play stupid games in demanding anonymity for the sole purpose of avoiding accountability. Second, note the blatant fearmongering without any specifics. It's pure "keep fear alive" in action -- aided along by a stenographer at the NY Times."

My understanding, without having actually read the NYT in the 40's (and without actually being alive in the 40's) is that while our fathers and grandfathers were all fighting Germany in WWII, the NYT and most of the rest of western news presented the Soviet Union and Stalin in glowing terms. But, once the war was won and the Nazi menace defeated, the Soviet Union and Stalin became the new source of all that is evil and wrong. We have always been at war with East Asia.

I don't know if it's because the free press is just one big joke or if it's because fear sells newspapers, but I believe that this kind of fear mongering has been going on a lot longer than just the 15 years that the techdirt article refers to.

"Technologies have reached a point at which the deployment of such systems is — practically if not legally — feasible within years, not decades. The stakes are high: LAWS have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms."

"The company’s progress is an example of how advances in robotic manipulation technology are opening up new jobs for robots in the food-processing business. Solid, hard, identical objects such as car parts are easy for robots to move around. But delicate, flexible, naturally variable objects such as meat, fruit, and vegetables require much more sophisticated sensing and manipulation."

One thing that strikes me as odd on this chart is the 5.2 cents per dollar for energy. On average just the refrigeration cost more than 5 cent, add in cooking, transportation fuel, and farming fuel costs it has to be closer to 10-15 cents per dollar. 
Right down to the fraction of a cent, here’s the breakdown of where the money you spend on food goes.

"How? Like a similar effort that folded AIDS proteins, the games "translate players' actions into program annotations," to kill numerous bugs in systems code, according to DARPA. The first experiment was a success and "produced hundreds of thousands of (code) annotations," so the agency plans to expand the program with five new games."
If you like playing online games, then you too can help birth some (possibly sinister) software from DARPA. The US Army's slightly insane research divisi

Geek and builder of things ...
Introduction
Classically trained Engineer and Programmer. Involved in open source, software, and hardware. Current interests: 3d printing and nanotechnology, predicting the future of technology, and low cost power production in 3rd world nations using material at hand. 

A simple addendum or thought - Recently I have noticed, there is an accelerating rate of change in science and technology, that seems to be just outside of peoples range of perception. Perhaps they are ignoring it because they do not understand it, or maybe they are paying to much attention to Snooki and the like to even notice.

Current Project - Uncompromisingly solving the world energy issues.
