The Winter-Proof high payload Drone That Will Watch the Arctic [Pics & Video]

A high-payload, low-cost drone would change Arctic science forever. But the challenge of making it freeze-proof still remains.

The wide-open spaces of the Arctic are a dream for drone science. A maneuverable eye in the sky has made unmanned aircraft a go-to method for counting sea lion populations, mapping ice cover, and perhaps one day for search-and-rescue operations off Alaska’s coast.

But small drones bring their own inconveniences, too, like limited flight time and a small payload. That was a problem for the U.S. federal research facility Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), which needed something that could carry lots of equipment to measure solar irradiance, three-dimensional windspeed, and analyze air particulates...

Scientists create water walking bionic microrobot

Chinese scientists have developed an aquatic microrobot that mimics the water-walking abilities of the Gerridae – a family of long-legged bugs commonly known as water striders that are able to run on top of the water’s surface. The scientists say their bionic microbot incorporates improvements over previous devices that make it an ideal candidate for military spy missions, water pollution monitoring and other applications.

The robot has a body about the size of a quarter to which ten water-repellent, wire legs and two moveable, oar-like legs are attached. While the 10 long legs extending from either side of the robot’s body keep it afloat, the two shorter, centrally-located, oar-like legs powered by two miniature motors propel it across the surface of the water.

The scientists say that al...

Russia Wants In on a Killer Robot Future so is going to play catch up with the west

Military officials have said that Moscow is developing its own drones — technology on which it lags significantly behind the U.S. — and an unmanned ground vehicle to guard its nuclear missile silos.

The question of when Russia will deploy giant anthropomorphic battle robots on its borders was on top of the list of things people asked President Vladimir Putin about during his online news conference in 2006.

Putin politely skirted the question. But last March, his special envoy Dmitry Rogozin said that Russia does in fact want lethal robots, though not necessarily giant or even anthropomorphic, and is conducting research in the field.

But Russia also recognizes the implications of creating machines authorized to kill humans, judging by the country’s participation in the firs...

UNIVERSITY IN AUSTRALIA HAS ROBOTIC BEES IN ITS SIGHTS TO POLLINATE PLANTS

THE HUMBLE BUMBLE BEE IS TO BECOME ROBOTIC SAY QUEENSLAND SCIENTISTS

mb_wide_buzz_20130913190911779247-620x349

Bees have long been renowned in the scientific world as one of the most efficient flying machines on Earth.

ARNOLD S. ……….MEET ‘THE POLLINATOR’

Now, in what may seem like science-fiction, University of Queensland researchers have studied their flight patterns in virtual reality in a bid to develop insect-sized robots.

”We are thinking this can be applied to robotics for very small flying robots,” PhD student Gavin Taylor said. ”If we had small flying robots, potentially they could act as pollinators, because bees are in global decline. But they could also be used for other things, such as in search-and-rescue flights.”

As part of the world-first Queensland Brain Institute study, Mr Taylor and other researchers tethered t...

DIY TRIANGLE HOME CONSTRUCTED LIFTER EXPERIMENT VIDEO HERE

USING BASIC MATERIALS TO DO THIS HOME DIY SCIENCE EXPERIMENT FOR  A SIMPLE LIFTER MECHANISIM

READ DESCRIPTION PLEASE. Those of you who can’t read and post comments like “fake”, and “I can see the strings” please read…
This is a 1Kv Anti-Gravity “Lifter” machine I made a damn long time ago for science fair sometime in 2004.
Edit: No people… I know you’re all electronics experts and all. So it shouldn’t be difficult to understand what this really is. Getting power to the “Lifter” requires 1kv of electricity to the negative and positive poles on the device. To run this current you need to attach wires. This is what you are all seeing in the video. If you guys figure out a better way of getting that much power to a devise wirelessly let me know

DIY LIFTER DESIGNED & BUILT & EXPLAINED IN SCIENTIFIC TERMS IN THIS VIDEO

DRONE LIFTER MECHANISIM SHOW IT’S DONE VIDEO

Lifters create lift by driving the ionized air downwards forming an upward force. Some people say that it is easy to see that Lifters do not form anti-gravity because it generates this force consistently along its own axis, regardless of the surrounding gravitational field. ~ But in a new theory all objects create their own gravitational fields relative to their energy or mass. In this theory Lifters create their own localized gravitational fields. This gravitational field is relative to their energy formed by the high voltage, electrical charge radiating from the emitting wire at the top of the lifter. This distorts the geometry of spacetime creating the air flow that creates the lift...
