Fiction: “Subterranean” by James Rollins describes a very scary world of monsters beneath Antarctica. It is definitely a work of fiction. Fact: In the real world, Dr. Priscu and his team of researchers from Montana State University actually DID discover life under the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Here is […]
Digit is an autonomous robot that sits in an autonomous vehicle. Once the destination is reached, your house for example, Digit finishes the delivery by getting out of the car and dropping the package off at your door. Very cool stuff! Go here for more information on Digit. […]
Quantum Physics is super easy….not! Check out this very interesting TED Talk video where Dr. Shohini Ghose, Professor of Astrophysics at Wilfrid Laurier University, makes quantum physics and quantum computing interesting and fun. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students can study Quantum Physics then design and implement […]
Here is a a very cool introduction to 5G for your smartphones from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). FYI….my Masters degree (University of Kansas) is in “Microwave Communication Theory” soooooo, I love this stuff. For those students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), […]
Check out this video on “Doggo” a four-legged robot built by STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) students at Stanford University. Go here to learn a lot more about the Doggo project including how YOU can get involved in this open source project. Geek On!
Dr. Jedidah Isler has a PhD from Yale University in Astrophysics and is currently Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College. Here is Dr. Isler’s TED Talk video discussing her love of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and how students interested in STEM can pursue […]
For students interested in studying Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) here is a cool video showing the technology used while filming “Alita: Battle Angel” which happens to be one of my favorite movies (see my review) ever! 🙂 Geek On!
OK, I save almost everything techy: Computers, printers, electronic test equipment (stay tuned for an upcoming “Archaeological Dig”), Videoconferencing stuff, CD’s, telephones, well……the list goes on and on and on and on……I got a lot of stuff in that garage. The problem is, I pack the stuff away […]
Checking out some technology news, I found this video and short explanation of the work NASA is doing in the area of autonomous robotics on the Space Station and beyond. Very cool! 🙂 Here is a quick explanation of AstroBee copied from this NASA article:
