Xenobots: Biological and Programmable

Robots are very complex, hard to make, and it’s taken many years to have smooth movements and bipedal walking. Modern day robotics take a lot of time and energy to create. With corrosive and cancer-causing materials automatons, when disposed of, will do more harm to the environment than good. But what if there was aContinue reading “Xenobots: Biological and Programmable”

Scaling Down: Particle Accelerator on a Chip

Massive particle accelerators have opened our eyes to what lies inside the structures that make up our reality. With every proton fired at an atom, we learn more about the forces that make up matter itself. But what if we were to scale that structure down? That’s the mind set behind Stanford’s Accelerator on aContinue reading “Scaling Down: Particle Accelerator on a Chip”

Lithium Sulfur Batteries

With the growing number of electric vehicles on the roads there’s an increasing need for rare metals such as cobalt, lithium, and nickel. Not only has Tesla’s stocks been on the rise but so too has the cost of making their batteries. The need to make a lighter and more cost-effective method for powering electricContinue reading “Lithium Sulfur Batteries”

Thorium: Engineering a Safer Reactor

Nuclear energy is a scary concept. With all the waste that it produces and the fact that if unchecked can cause a horrible meltdown killing everyone in a thousand square miles, it’s no wonder why people would rather look to solar or wind as a clean energy option. But there is a way to produceContinue reading “Thorium: Engineering a Safer Reactor”

Sustainable Sand: Engineering Cleaner Water

Fresh water is one of the things we take for granted in the first world. We can just go to the sink and turn on the faucet. With exceptions to Flint Michigan, we have pretty easy access to drinking water. However, with climate change on the rise, our methods on how to obtain fresh waterContinue reading “Sustainable Sand: Engineering Cleaner Water”

Google’s AI and it’s Fight Against Breast Cancer

Cancer doesn’t care what we are doing in our lives, who we love, who loves us back, where we are financially, or if we are up to our eyeballs in dept. It will target us at random and kill without feeling. All it ever takes is one mutation that refuses to die and we haveContinue reading “Google’s AI and it’s Fight Against Breast Cancer”

Technology: Bionics

Losing a limb is the worst thing that could happen in our lives. One day, on the job, our legs could be crushed by a steel bar and we have to get it amputated. Other things in life could lead to the loss of an appendage such as: infectious diseases, car accidents, and encountering anContinue reading “Technology: Bionics”

Robotics

We may never see new worlds in our lifetime. We may never see the first human to land on Mars, (sorry Elon Musk). One thing we will see in our life times is the advancement in robotics. With companies like Boston Dynamics, Hankook Mirae Technology, and Moley we’re more likely to see the rise ofContinue reading “Robotics”

Coding and Modding

Life is boring, but we have our digital escapes. One such escape comes in the form of video games. But we’re not just limited to just programming games when it comes to coding. In today’s world there’s plenty of applications for coding and programming. With a background in programming, one could have a future inContinue reading “Coding and Modding”
