As It Turns Out, Penguins Were Human-sized 30 Million Years Ago

Some animals are just cute the way they are now, i.e. small and cuddly. But what if, they weren’t? Case-in-point: penguins.

Wearable Robotic Tail Aims To Gift Humans What Evolution Failed To Provide Us: Balance

Why human beings do not have a tail is simply because, we can balanced ourselves perfectly under normal situations. However, very obviously evolution did not expect us to do things out of the norm like carrying heavy boxes or going up stairs, let alone a combination of both.

Just Like Star Wars’ Tatooine, This Newly Discovered Alien Planet Has More Than A Sun

I bet when George Lucas imagined Star Wars’ Tatooine with two suns, he didn’t realize it actually exists (or maybe he did?). For the benefit of non-Star Wars fans, Tatooine was a planet covered in harsh deserts, orbiting two suns, known as Tatoo I and Tatoo II. Anyways, the story was, NASA has spotted an […]

Watch A Shark In A Feeding Frenzy Gets Swallowed Whole By A Grouper

What supposed to be a rare sight of a herd of 11 sharks, made up of two species of deep-sea dogfish, feasting on an eight-foot long dead swordfish on the ocean floor at 1,500 feet (457 meters) deep, turned out to be a shocker to a bunch of researchers. Frankly, we were a little stunned […]

BolaWrap Is Non-lethal Hand-held Remote Restraint That Batman Would Gladly Use

Whoever invented bolas must be proud. Why? Because, the invention not survived to this day, but has gotten a high-tech twist by the way of BolaWrap. BolaWrap is a non-lethal restraining device. It is not Taser, if that’s what you are thinking. In any case, Taser is not always non-lethal, if history has taught us […]

Watch IHMC Robots Walking Over Rough Terrain With Automatic Footstep Planning

I am not going lie. I just can’t wrap my head around the science behind how IHMC made Boston Dynamics’ Atlas and NASA Valkyrie robots navigate over a rough terrain. The development was, btw, a response to DARPA Robotics Challenge that calls for improvements in robotics technology for disaster relief operations. DARPA Robotics Challenge was […]
