As more states legalize medical and recreational...

Snake on a plane! Don’t panic, it’s probably just a (soft) robot
Snake on a plane! Don’t panic, it’s probably just a (soft) robot

2017-06-19

By Jeremy Wagstaff | SINGAPORE Robots are getting softer. Borrowing from nature, some machines now have arms that curl and grip like an octopus, others wriggle their way inside an airplane engine or forage underwater to create their own energy. This is technology that challenges how we think of, and interact with, the robots of the not-too-distant future. Robots are big business: by 2020, the industry will have more than doubled to $188 billion, predicts IDC, a consultancy. But there’s still a lot that today’s models can’t do, partly because they are mostly made of rigid metal or plastic. Softer, lighter and less reliant on external power, future robots could interact more safely and predictably with humans, go where humans can’t, and do some of the robotic jobs that other robots still can’t manage. A recent academic conference in Singapore showcased...

Killing Zebra Mussels on Intake Screens Important Topic at Hydropower Gathering

2017-06-19

Killing zebra mussels before they fully infest intake screens and become a costly nuisance should be a priority for hydropower operators in the western U.S. Denver, Colorado June 19, 2017 — The western U.S. is on the edge of a zebra mussel explosion. Since the late 1980s, zebra mussels have expanded rapidly from the Great Lakes to waterways throughout the Midwest. And they are still on the move. Hydropower facilities in their path are especially vulnerable to infestations, as large colonies can clog intake screens and constrict pipelines. Killing zebra mussels will be a key topic at an upcoming gathering of hydropower professionals in Denver, Colorado. The annual HydroVision International conference will feature a tour of the Federal Bureau of Reclamation’s Technical Service Center, which hosts a zebra and quagga mussel research program. The program monitors the spread of zebra mussels in the western U.S. and conducts...
