The age of paranormal transhumanism is upon us–when humans will use machines to realize magical, psychic powers once relegated to the realms of science fiction and fantasy. Advanced technology, the creative bully of the human race, has been creeping up on us for years; now it’s here and it’s, well, creepy.
I would love to see your community's feedback on a new EMF detector I developed for iPhone that's on Kickstarter right now.
Mr.Ghost is a gadget that plugs into your mic port and allows your iPhone to sense electromagnetic fields around your house. It’s not quite a Tricorder, but we’re working on it.
It uses the gyros in the phone so you can swing it back and forth and find the sources of the EM radiation. This is particularly useful if you’re curious how much EMF your household appliances put off, or if you’re feeling more adventurous and investigating a haunting. Mr.Ghost gives you the option to record the fields and listen to them, as well as a more Lord of the Rings option where the detector glows brighter the more powerful the EM field is.
It just launched on Kickstarter today and backer rewards starting at $20 include the device. The first 200 will ship before Christmas, so people can track Santa down, assuming he produces a lot of electromagnetic radiation. Kickstarter link: http://www.kickst
Spiders are very agile, and some can even jump. They owe this capability to their hydraulically operated limbs. Researchers have now designed a mobile robot modeled on the same principle that moves spider legs. Created using a 3-D printing process, this lightweight can explore terrain that is beyond human reach.
Alexey Snezhko and Igor Aronson, physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, have coaxed "micro-robots" to do their bidding. How will this benefit mankind?
Okay, so maybe the "Tvor" isn’t actually a "pet lamp" but it does have the ability to seek out dark areas of a room and point light in that direction, automatically.
