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.
Superstar Robot Packers Superstar Customers
The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci.
Big Business in Italy
CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
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…
New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year
Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste.
"Paste with No Waste"
Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemicals. You pop the pill in your mouth, cr…
