How's this for a dream vacation? You're in a tropical resort and diving underwater with cutting edge robotic geer. Your swimming robot is video recording the marine life and ocean surrounding you. Later, from your boat, you launch the swimming robot with imbedded cameras into the sea to glide along to places you can't reach. The robotic tech live streams, video-recorded images. You and your ship mates enjoy the oceanographic display above water. It's possible and has just been developed.
FIFISH P3 - Swimming, Video Recording Robotic Innovation
FIFISH P3 is an underwater explorer drone with highly advanced video, video streaming and photographic capabilities. It can record high quality video and highly professional photographs at depths up to 328 feet. QYSEA of Shenzhen, China developed FIFISH. They call it the first truly professional underwater robot. And it's an award winner. It's the recipient of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 Innovation Award.
Smart Phone Operational
Novice and professional divers/photographers easily operate FIFISH. It's a remote controlled drone, And, its remote control unit handily works with smart phones and tablets. The swimming robotic videographer smoothly maneuvers in 6 directions. That allows it to explore almost any underwater area up to 328 feet.
Lights Up the Sea
FIFISH is lightweight and compact. It has a wide camera angle with a 162 degree field of view. The explorer drone is equipped with 4000 lumen LED lighting capacity. So, even in dark water the video is bright and clear.
Automatic Cruise Control
FIFISH P3 is propelled forward by 3 thrusters at a speed up to 4.2 feet per second. It also has automatic cruise control. Its rechargeable battery runs for 2 hours. And its sensors are 4 times bigger than typical underwater sensors.
This gives new meaning to swimming robots and robot vacations.
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University. For a great news blog, go to Important Innovations Collection: Breakthrough on CTE Brain Injuries from Sports: First Test for CTE in the Living Source: Stock Image Game-changing Discovery by Boston University…
One of the World's Largest: $2.3 Billion EV Battery Plant for Lordstown, Ohio
GM and South Korea's LG Chem Joint Venture
GM and South Korea's LG Chem are investing $2.3 billion to build an electric vehicle battery cell plant in the Lordstown area of Ohio, USA. The plant will be one of the world's largest EV battery cell producing plants. GM and LG Chem will break ground for the new facility in mid-2020 and the new plant will create 1100 jobs at the start of operations. The companies say this plant will be flexible enough to respond to rapid changes in EV battery technology needs. Those needs are accelerating with demand for greater range on less charge times, advancing with electric car technology and they are very expensive. GM CEO Mary Barra's Electric Vehicle Commitment
This is a very significant investment. GM CEO Mary Barra believes that the future of driving is electric. The lack of lithium-ion battery supplies, persistent production problems and the pres…
Continuous Supply of New Neurons Tied to Lifetime Learning & Memory Important Discovery by University of Pennsylvania Medical School Scientists
This is breakthrough research from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The scientists have shown for the first time that brain neurons grow and develop over a lifetime from a single population of stem cells in the hippocampus region of the brain. That region is the brain's center of memory and learning. It's also a key area of reaction to stress and mood adjustments.
Why is This Important to You
The discovery underscores how a continuous supply of new neurons throughout life is the source of youthful like learning and memory throughout your life. The discovery was found in research on mice. And, it sets a new benchmark. It helps neuroscientists to determine how to enable youthful life brain conditions for memory and learning for all of us throughout our lives. It's also a path of discovery to repair and regen…
