The world's first robot-run farm will harvest 30,000 heads of lettuce daily with no herbicides or pesticides, 98% recycled water, and LED light.

Robot mall guards are designed to be rented out at below minimum wage. "Think of it like a marked patrol car on the side of the street. These are there to intervene with anything being done; they're there actually to provide a commanding presence."

Why a bunch of Silicon Valley investors are suddenly interested in universal basic income. Because other studies address the question of whether a basic income discourages people from going out and getting a job, but if all the jobs are going to be automated, that ceases to be an interesting question. The question then is whether people will become couch potatoes or whether they will take the initiative to do creative things.

More than 3 billion people still don't have internet access. Is this the solution?
Engineers have developed an thin, inexpensive antenna that could bring internet access to millions.

Over seven minutes of little plastic things falling over!
In a world that has been consumed by digital forms of entertainment, it's good to see that dominoes are still popular in some circles. Enjoyed by many cultures and people from all over the world, dominoes are

Is this real?
 
A machine that clones objects into holographic images that people can actually touch has been created. "Place an object in one box, and a hologram of the object appears in another box. You can gently touch the hologram and it will react to your touch, which you can feel."

"The system concentrates ultrasound energy at the intersections of the real and clone objects, which creates pressure to the real objects. If the 'real object' is your finger, you feel contact force from the 3D clone object by the ultrasonic radiation pressure. At the same time, the same forces are applied to the original real object (of the clone) in the other workspace. The posture and the shape of the hand can be arbitrary."

"The difference of Haptoclone interaction from actual contact is the displayed force is limited to about 100mN per square centimeter or less and the value is decided arbitrarily. Besides, the force direction is basically normal to the surface. But produced contact positions and areas are faithfully controlled on the object, which can produce realistic tactile sensation in some classes of contact."

"It realizes various telehaptic experiences. Though a literal 'handshake' is impossible since the produced force is weak, it is possible to stroke the hand of the other side and lightly touch each other freely at arbitrary parts of the hand, sharing the haptic sensation. Stroked by a clone hand, you feel existence of multiple fingers as well as where you are touched. In some modified manners, haptic communication as a handshake and high-fived can be achieved."
In a breakthrough that may change post-mortem 2Pac concerts for the rest of time, Japanese scientists have created a machine that clones objects into holographic images that people can actually tou...
