A few more iterations of this and the occulas rift controller is complete. Robocop look probably needs to be improved upon before it mainstreams.

MAN CREATES THE FIRST EVER ARTIFICIAL BIOLOGICAL LEAF THAT TURNS LIGHT AND WATER INTO OXYGEN. IT EVEN WORKS!

Julian Melchiorri, a Royal College of Art graduate, claims to have created an artificial biological functional leaf. “I extracted chloroplasts from  plant cells and placed  them  inside this silk protein. As an outcome I have the first photosynthetic material that is living and breathing as a leaf does”. In other words, this artificial  leaf can take in carbon dioxide, light and water to release oxygen.

One of the application is the production of oxygen in space that could handle the harsh environment of interstellar travel. Plants in fact just don’t like zero gravity environments, and toting around an indefinite oxygen supply isn’t really feasible.
 
Apart from space exploration, these leaves can be used for oxygen producing lampshades or for the ventilation systems in large buildings. Back here on Earth, they can be used as biological air filters or oxygen producers.

This is mind blowing. I see now where they believe the synergy lies between their current business and the robot making companies they bought recently!
 
Cloud-Based Robot Grasping with the Google Object Recognition Engine

What if robots were not limited by onboard computation, algorithms did not need to be implemented on every class of robot, and model improvements from sensor data could be shared across many robots? What if one could use the Internet, with the millions of photos that are uploaded and made publicly available every day, as a potential source for computation and data about objects, their semantics, and how to manipulate them. 

In Cloud-Based Robot Grasping with the Google Object Recognition Engine, presented at the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (http://goo.gl/VRbLqV) and recently highlighted in the list of influential Google papers from 2013 (goo.gl/heOFbW), Googlers +Sal Candido and +James Kuffner along with UC Berkeley researchers Ben Kehoe, +Akihiro Matsukawa and +Ken Goldberg detailed a system architecture, an implemented prototype, and initial experimental data for a cloud-based robot grasping system.

Using a Willow Garage PR2 robot with onboard color and depth cameras, object recognition was performed in the cloud by a using a variant of the Google Goggles object recognition engine, while the Point Cloud Library (PCL) was used for pose estimation, and Columbia University’s GraspIt! toolkit and OpenRAVE implemented for grasping.

Woah! Would You Do This?

I am a thrill seeker but this might be a bit much. Whatcha think? Want to try it tandem?

So Obama is a dictator because he wears beige. Did you notice something in partuclar about all those other photos of dictators?

He's missing the military pins and decorations that all those military dictators had.

Next you'll be saying he things he's a jolly tubby bearded immortal old man from the north pole because he happens to wear a red tie.

Or maybe he's laughing at all the blood he's spilt in foreign wars because of a red tie. Or maybe he (insert insult) because be (insert fact then link tenuously to the insult with deeply flawed logic)

I'm proud to say I did learn something from the video though. That Levant thing was helpful. Thank you :)

Sleek design. Looks unreal!
 
The exterior of the incredible 41m Ocean Sapphire
This spectacular and contemporary 41 meter masterpiece has been designed by Forster + Partners with a strong emphasis on space and light and has five suites for up 12 guests. The luminous vessel boasts floor to ceiling windows and a panoramic saloon on the upper deck, offering wide, unobstructed views of the horizon and natural materials such as solid teak and coconut husk fibre flooring dissipate the boundaries between the lush interior and the sleek, chic outer deck to elegant effect.

Ocean Sapphire is available to charter from Floating Life at €130,000 p/w.

A future requirement for 'humane' capital punishment? The key to conciousness would seem to give the holder alot of power! Itll be interesting to see where this research takes us metaphysically!

Basing my judgement on their cocktails, decore and service as I haven't eaten here yet. Beautiful, stylish place to unwind. Vast cocktail menu offers plenty of options but expect to pay €10+. Worth every penny imho

Candlelit and atmospheric, its a classic traditional bar with a modern twist. I had the chicken stuffed with goats cheese on a bed of sundried tomato rissotto covered in a celariac creamy sauce. It was a taste sensation. Love their wide range of craft beers aswell.

There's a wonderful mural on the wall opposite the bar. Heated smoking area with kegs to sit on or tables should you so choose!
