The Robots Are Coming For Your Job -- And That's A Great Thing!

Since the very first wheel or hammer was made, people have been using leverage to get work done. You take this trend and add a few motors, semi conductors, pumps and sensors, you've got Robotics.

First of all, robotic material handling tends to scare people.
But this is the last thing that should worry anybody. think about it.
There's no way that a human can't outperform another human being's invention. No matter how advanced, it's a thing. It's a thing that frees up humans from doing mind numbing chores so we can all learn how to do higher level tasks.

Robotic manufacturing automation affords people precisely consistent production, predictable results, stable benchmarks that are easy to control and upgrade (if the way you mix cookie batter changes every time, you never know if it's the flour, the yeast, or the mixing time), speed and ultimately, freedom from monotonous mind numbing tasks. It's these mind numbing tasks that cause accidents, limb dismemberment, and death.

If you think the applications of Robotics is limited and that it won't
come after your manual labor job, you might be surprised. Robotics and manufacturing automation is used in Pharma, Biotech, Foods, Plastics, Manufacturing, Welding, Heavy Equipment Manufacturing, Logistics,Transportation, Shipping, Chemicals, Energy, and every other industry. But that's a good thing. It frees you up to learn how to program and control these robots.

Combining reality with fiction and physical with reality is a winning formula
It’s insanely easy to photoshop aliens and ghosts into pictures these days. Here are some creepy pictures that are still bizarre despite the photoshop.

New collection of strange, creepy, scary, and wtf

Yep.. Amazed!!!
Had seen the image many a times earlier, but understood the importance of it today...Amazed!!! 

In 1996, scientists took a huge risk when they pointed the Hubble telescope to an inky field that they believed to be void of stars and planets. As images from Hubble are in constant demand, the worry was that devoting so much time to a black space would prove futile. Once the photons finally registered, though, that leap of faith proved fruitful: light from over three thousand galaxies illuminated the image. A few years and missions later, Hubble’s glimpse into what is known as the deep field has revealed that we are just one tiny part of a vast system comprising 100 billion galaxies.

Everybody online?
The last places on Earth without the internet.

Is there anywhere left on Earth where it’s impossible to access the internet? There are a few places, but you have to go out of your way to find them, discovers Rachel Nuwer.

It can be easy to forget what life was like before the internet. For many, not a day goes by without checking email, browsing online or consulting Google. Some 1.3 billion people alive today are young enough never to have experienced anything else. Yet has the network of networks underpinning all this activity actually reached every part of the globe?

Interia by Jason de Caires Taylor

Calling captain Nemo....
"The whole body just lunged onto the camera". Watch as an octopus makes it clear he doesn't like being filmed.

Will the robots win?
Engineers and scientists at Harvard have developed a team of robots based on termite behavior that can build structures independently and respond to changes in their environment intelligently.
