Scientists from Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania have developed a robotic fish powered by ‘robot blood’ – a battery fluid. There are no solid batteries attached to the roughly 40-centimeter soft robot fish. Rather it is filled and propelled by a fluid which stores energy and moves the fish’s fins. This new approach to powering a robot gives the artificial fish the ability to store extra energy within a short period and to operate for a longer duration without the conventional heavy and cumbersome battery packs.

Galactic Goldilocks zone – the region around a black hole where the temperature supports life – has been proposed by a group of scientists from Harvard University. The team found that AGN-powered photosynthesis in our galaxy is over 1,100 light-years across, from Sagittarius A*. Scientists usually focus on the “Goldilocks zones” in every search for alien life. It is a centrifugal region surrounding a star where the temperature supports the existence of liquid water on the surface of an existing orbiting plant. Some scientists now bel...
The market for double-eyelid surgery in China is expected to worth over US$100 billion this year. It’s not difficult to see why. More than half of the people in East Asia are born without a fold in the eyelid – a feature gravely cherished by most of the population. According to 25-year old Beijing resident Sharon Lu, double-eyelid surgery has since 2017 become “as easy as getting a new haircut.” This trend has since last year escalated into a more serious social problem: Snapchat dysmorphia. Cosmetic doctor Tijion Esho, founder of th...

The official public launch of the system is expected to take place in the first half of 2020 and you can buy out Facebook cryptocurrency either online or at local grocery stores with the aid of the Libra identificat...
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s ambitious space move in February 2018 made headlines in after the private American aerospace company launched a cherry-red Tesla car (Roadster) into space on a rocket to Mars. Now, a team of Russian scientists is making a mockery of Musk by sending a red toy car into space last week. While SpaceX launched a full-sized car into orbit with a dummy “Starman” behind the vehicle’s wheel, Russia’s Tomsk State University researchers sent a toy car that’s a replica of red Zhiguli owned by the country’s Roscosmos ...
NVIDIA Research team has made life easier for novice painters with a new deep learning tool: GauGAN that will turn rough doodles sketched into a Microsoft-like paint into “photorealistic masterpieces.” GauGAN converts ordinary lines and patches into “lifelike images” using GAN or generative adversarial networks, the famous class of machine learning systems developed in 2014 by Ian Goodfellow. GauGAN, which could be used to draw a landscape with all possible real-life features, could be a powerful tool to everyone; architects, urban p...
Tesla has announced plans to introduce a new in-car video game that is unlike any of those we have seen on Tesla infotainment systems. While it’s completely ingenious to play old Atari games in your Tesla car using a controller, Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Thursday at E3 video game expo disclosed that the company is going to include the 2018 racing game “Beach Buggy Racing 2” to your game collections. That’s not completely all the fun, anyway. Instead of controlling the virtual vehicles using an Xbox controller or a traditional controller...
You know how it goes. At some point, you jump in the DNA testing bandwagon and order a 23andMe kit. You get the results in a few days only to find out you’ve unwittingly opened a can of promiscuous worms.

It’s understandably a very traumatic experience and one 23andMe wants you to encounter on this Father’s Day at a reduced price. 23andMe’s Health + Ancestry Kits test for wellness factors, carrier statuses, and h...
