Secrets of fluorescent microalgae could lead to super-efficient solar cells

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability

Tiny light-emitting microalgae, found in the ocean, could hold the secret to the next generation of organic solar cells, according to new research carried out at the Universities of Birmingham and Utrecht.

Microalgae are probably the oldest surviving living organisms on the planet. They have evolved over billions of years to possess light harvesting systems that are up to 95 per cent efficient. This enables them to survive in the most , and adapt to changes our world has seen over this time-span.

Unravelling how this system works could yield important clues about how it could be used or recreated for use in new, super-efficient organic solar panels. Because of the complexity of the organisms and the huge variety of different species, however, progress in this area has been limited.

Humanoid robot delicately ‘walks a tightrope’ of tiny blocks

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

Researchers trained the 165-pound ‘humanoid robot’ to walk across narrow terrain by using human-like control, perception and planning algorithms. The video shows the robot, called Atlas, carefully moving across a balance beam using body control created using LIDAR…

Researchers from the Institute for Human & Machine Cognition in Florida have created a robot that uses a planning algorithm to balance its way across an uneven path of cinder blocks.

Brain Computer Interface Market — Bridging Gaps Between Machines And Humans

Posted by in categories: computing, habitats, neuroscience, virtual reality

A rise in the number of game developers, adoption of brain computer technology to enhance the complete gaming experience is triggering the growth of BCI market. The BCI application in 2017 has also influenced the smart home control sector and is believed to grow rapidly during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025. The high living standards across U.S and Canada are held responsible for the demand of BCI in smart home control system industry.

Brain-computer interface (BCI) is a technology that agree to communicate between a human-brain with an external technology. The term can be referred to an interface that takes signals from the brain to an external piece of hardware that sends signals to the brain. There are different brain-computer interface technologies developed, through different methods and for diversified purposes, including in virtual reality technology.

Bizarre New Theory: Something Tampered With the Early Universe

Posted by in category: cosmology

Cosmologists have a new guess about why the universe is expanding outward faster than data says it ought to.

The hypothesis, according to research first shared on the preprint server ArXiv in November, goes as follows: When the universe was just a mere 100,000 years old, a mysterious energy field that scientists are calling “early dark energy” formed, rapidly pushing the still-forming cosmos outward even faster than before.

Another 100,000 years after that, the research suggests, the strange energy field faded away — and left the young, accelerated universe to its own devices.
