The 3d print industry, while exciting, is still in its infancy and very much not a consumer-ready activity, and more used for industrial and hobbiest purposes. The majority of our conversion today will reside around the hobbiest part. I've been 3d Printing for over 8 years, and do it entirely

Robots Dance Better Than Me, who knew?

Boston Dynamics isn't done teaching their bizarrely human- and animal-like robots new tricks. Their latest? Shakin' mechanical booty. To show off the new capabilities of their robots today, the company dropped this sleek dance number set to "Do You Love Me?" from The Contours, which is not just "more rhythm than me." That's a low bar. The fluidity of the movement, which seems much more normal than it did only a few years ago, is what's remarkable here. Are they trying to get all

Virtual Reality is “ready and acceptable” for dealing with “pain and distress” among children

"Researchers at the University of Montreal and CHU Sainte-Justine in Canada find that, in addition to normal treatment, the use of virtual reality is a "feasible and appropriate" tool for handling the "pain and discomfort" of children during intravenous (IV) procedures. A randomized controlled trial (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT03750578) was used by the team of scientists lead by Dr. Sylvie Le May, PhD, to decide whether virtual reality could increase patient experience by acting as a

Excess Power Benefits Bitcoin Miners in the Nordic Region

Thanks to a decline in energy costs, the Nordic zone has once again become a lucrative place to mine crypto-currencies. The wettest weather in at least 20 years has improved hydro-electric power plant output, leaving Sweden and Norway with some of the lowest energy prices in the world. The resulting glut in the most significant raw material for the production of virtual coins coincided with a year when the Bitcoin price nearly quadrupled. In giant computing farms, currencies are made that

Australian Robots Are Exploring the Deep Sea to Study Marine Snow

Where I live, it’s too warm out for a white Christmas. But in the deep ocean, it’s always snowing. I’m talking about marine snow, or flakes of biological debris like dirt, dead phytoplankton and algae, and even bits of fecal matter that shower down from higher waters. So festive! As off-putting as this snow may sound, it serves an important purpose in regulating the climate and providing nutrients that life on the seafloor needs to thrive. To get a better grip on the detritus, 20 Australian
