Another cool computer prototype demonstration at TED!
Romo, shown in the video, reminds me of the Tamagotchi from the 90s. Some may spend countless hours with them. Hobbyists can spend time playing, write apps for this, and connect & control the robot remotely. These mini robots are just good fun for the kids and family, and not expensive. Well… other than that you do need an iPhone or iPod touch.
Yet another nicely done TED presentation, which show animations of biology and DNA. Check it out! I wish they have the long version that walkthrough all the animations and explain how things work.
We have no ways to directly observe molecules and what they do — Drew Berry wants to change that. At TEDxSydney he shows his scientifically accurate (and entertaining!) animations that help researchers see unseeable processes within our own cells.
This is another nice presentation from TED – by Phil Plait on How to defend Eaerth from asteroids
What’s six miles wide and can end civilization in an instant? An asteroid — and there are lots of them out there. With humor and great visuals, Phil Plait enthralls the TEDxBoulder audience with all the ways asteroids can kill, and what we must do to avoid them.
