    DARPA and Boston Dynamics, of BigDog, Petman, and Cheetah fame, have unveiled their most advanced humanoid robot yet: Atlas. At 6’2″ (188cm) and 330lbs (150kg). with 28 hydraulically actuated joints, Atlas can replicate almost every degree of human motion, watch the video above. Atlas has an on-board, real-time computer — but it hasn’t yet been loaded up with its software brain. As it stands, Atlas is a shell, and more than a dozen teams will now compete in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) to see who can create the best brain for Atlas.
    "In December 2013, each team will load up an Atlas with its software and compete in a series of disaster response trials. The best teams will receive continued funding from DARPA, and will then compete in the DRC finals in December 2014. Whoever wins that will receive $2 million from DARPA, and presumably a big contract for the commercial production of Atlas robots.”
    As you can see in the video, Atlas has no problem walking over rough terrain...

    At first glance, the presentation appears to be something of a joke, a robotically cheery schoolgirl wearing the suit. But in this video above, you can watch a man wears the device onto the streets of Japan to show off its stair climbing and running ability. At one point, the video even shows the master-slave controlled hand of the suit delicately cracking an egg.
    Created by Sagawa Electronics, the Powered Jacket MK3 is an exoskeleton suit that can be used to travel around the city and even pick up small objects. The suit weighs about 55 pounds and stands roughly seven feet tall, giving the wearer an imposing profile despite the device's "lightweight" build. According to the website, the exoskeleton will be offered in limited numbers to those interested and will sell for a whopping $123,000 starting this month.

    A team led by researchers at Boston Children's Hospital has designed tiny, gas-filled microparticles that can be injected directly into the bloodstream to quickly oxygenate the blood. Even if you can’t/aren’t breathing. And it can keep people alive for 15 to 30 minutes. The particles are pockets of oxygen in a layer of lipids, specifically fats. This is then suspended in liquid, which can be injected into the blood steam. The oxygen then “squeeze[s] through capillaries,” according to Dr. John Kheir of Boston Children’s Hospital. This invention, it will allow medical teams to keep patients alive and well for 15 to 30 minutes despite major respiratory failure. This is enough time for doctors and emergency personnel to act without risking a heart attack or permanent brain injuries in the patient. Cool, in the future we don't have to breathe in the water?

    How do you make a working human heart? Scientists can turn stem cells into beating heart cells, but getting them to organize into a 3D heart requires a scaffold.
    At the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Harald Ott and his team are reusing the scaffold that nature provides. They're stripping away all the living cells from dead hearts, before filling in the leftover matrix with healthy new cells.

    John McGinnis trying to reinvent the personal airplane with the help of his father, son, and a rotating crew of about two dozen volunteers. He calls the plane Synergy. McGinnis says Synergy could be cheaper, quieter, and, at more than 40 mpg, three times as fuel-efficient.
    Synergy’s wings bend upward and into a box shape for minimum drag and maximum efficiency. The top half of each wing swoops behind the body to function as a tail while providing greater in-flight stability. The double-box tail design also makes gliding easier by counteracting tornado-like vortices at the wings’ tips. And instead of a front-mounted propeller, an impeller placed behind the bullet-shaped body quiets noise while adding thrust.
    1) A 200hp turbodiesel engine expels heat below the impeller, adding thrust.
    2) Large wings allow slower takeoffs and landings.
    3) Box tails create airflow patterns that reduce drag and increase flight stability.
    4) An autopilot computer can land Synergy at a nearby runway during an emergency; a ballistic parachute can also be deployed.

    Watch the video of Synergy after more.
