Cats! Do we need to say more? Maybe a little bit. The concept of reputation is used to pass information about someone’s behaviour without having to interact directly with that person. In other words, if someone is a bad person, you can be aware of it in advance, and also in the other way, if someone is good, it is good to know. Surprisingly, this not only applies to humans, it is also true between other animals like dogs, and in between dogs and humans (yes, your dog will tell other dogs if you are good or bad for him). The next experiment aims to study if this type of reputation knowledge applies also for cats, and if cats share the reputation with other cats, so they can know which human they can trust or which one they should avoid.
I consider the next project important because it is an attempt to improve the human-machine interface towards something more dynamic. I can actually imagine screens everywhere around me, on the walls, desks, tales, floating around…. and everything is in control with this device and I can move and go anywhere with it. Nydeum sense.
A group of scientist consider ageing as a disease and wants to treat it. The key solution? We don’t know yet, but what we know for sure is that regeneration will be an important part of the solution. Why some animals regenerate better than others? Why it is easier for them to recover completely from injuries, from amputated limbs… Why there is few examples among mammals? Wouldn’t be nice to come back from surgery without scars or permanent damage to internal organs? Solving these questions and others is the aim of the next project which is focused on one type of mammal that has the ability of regenerate. By backing this project you will contribute to expand your own life spam, isn’t it a good perspective to live more?
Robots, coding, learning, and fun. The next project can become a perfect toy for kids these days. This robot will contribute to prepare them to the technologically advanced world they will have to face. Enjoy Codeybot.
The project this week aims to identify neurons that create rhythmic signals. Those signals can be used to breathe for instance, but also for walking or timing movement.
The next project aims to bring DNA testing to the mainstream. Project Bento offers a easy hands-on into DNA laboratory work.
The project this week is a ultra low price 3D printer: OLO.Basically OLO uses light to cure resin and build the parts. It only requires a vertical displacement platform and a mobile phone.
