I shared this last year, but the time has come again.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.
 
Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

One of the songs off of Delain's new album.  I'm curious to hear what the rest of it sounds like.

It's a bit late, but this song is funny.

Congratulations Simone of +Epica on your first child.  May your pregnancy go well.  I'm sure I can speak for all Epica fans, when I say that we wish you the best, and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Congratulations +Epica on 10 years of great music.  The Retrospect concert was amazing.  I only wish I could have been there in person.  I look forward to seeing you guys on tour again.

This is pretty fascinating.
 
<inflatable actuation>

When a new technology comes along and is able to improve a basic technical ratio - like power density of batteries or the # of transistors per integrated circuit - by 5 or 10 x... it typically allows entirely new classes of technologies to be created. In this Solve for X talk, Saul Griffith talks about such an advance. He's working on soft actuators, ones driven by air, that could create robotic actuators with significantly higher torque to weight ratios.

Problem: Actuators in robots are heavy, clunky and limit mobility, dexterity and speed. 

Solution: Create materials and actuators that are soft - that act more like muscles and tissues found in nature and exert tremendous forces while being flexible and low weight.

Breakthrough technology that makes this possible: Saul and other researchers utilize differential air pressure within flexible materials in order to create large inflatable robots and actuators unlike anything you've seen before.
