3D Printed Soft Jumping Robot

So now we have some folks who have combined hard technology with soft components for a robot to jump and land.  Again very early development work in the coming tranformative, disruptive world of robots rushing toward us.  In the meantime, we can always enjoy frogs and crickets in nature.

Robot Ping Pong

Stanford students program a robot to do very simple things like catch and play ping pong. Again, basic beginning science in robotics.  For hundreds of years children had imaginary friends.  Soon they will have robotic friends.

The Smog Free Tower

This is a remarkable new idea/technology.  I am in the midst of co-authoring a book about the future of humanity’s relationship with Earth – called This Spaceship Earth – with environmentalist Professor Tim Rummage.  I have come to see that our ability to actually cleanse the atmosphere from carbon will be essential and will need […]


Robots Control by Mental Telepathy

This is the very basic beginning of research that will, by 2020-25, in human ability to control most of the technology around them with concentrated thought.  As pointed out in this video, this of course will be a boon to the handicapped.

This one is to be expected. A perfect gift to anyone you know that has had a DUI arrest, or for any of your loved ones who consume alcohol.  


A First Stage Mood-Altering Headset

This is a phenomenally good start to what will be, by 2020 a profoundly developed business. Though many of us have found ways to alter state, we don’t always do so. This is based on the low level “fight or flight” brain response. Calm versus active. Think of this as replacing so many things we […]


The Announcement of Tesla Energy

The visionary Elon Musk steps up to do his part to start the inevitable decline of fossil fuels. This is an 18 minute video but is you have any interest in slowing climate change, this is a must watch. I greatly admire him and am in fact a fan.  


Tesla Powerpack and Powerwall Part One

A quick summary of this truly transformative breakthrough.  As I have been writing at evolutionshift.com, Elon Musk is the great visionary entrepreneur of the automotive, energy and space industries today.  End to end reduction of the use of fossil fuels and the lowering of energy costs.  This is a short video. If you enjoy it, […]


The Next Stage of Space Exploration: Pocket Sized Spacecraft

This is a probable next step for gathering infinitely more data about the universe than we can now obtain. An extension of what is already a significant movement to ever smaller satellites.  


Wouldn’t it be Nice!

While I believe in Elon Musk, Tesla, and autonomous driving cars, I find this video a bit hard to believe. That said, I think everyone who has ever had a parking ticket because your meter just expired and you had to unsuccessfully deal with a grim faced traffic person will LOVE this video. Another reason […]
