Squishy Robots

"A new phase-changing material built from wax and foam developed by researchers at MIT is capable of switching between hard and soft states."

MIT researchers are trying to change the paradigm of your typical robot by mimicking organic substances. The idea is that the robot should be soft to conform to a particular environment, and interact with humans, though rigid enough to actually do a procedure. They can achieve this by applying heat at particular points to deform the object, then applying coolness to make the object rigid again. 

"Robots built from this material would be able to operate more like biological systems with applications ranging from difficult search and rescue operations, squeezing through rubble looking for survivors, to deformable surgical robots that could move through the body to reach a particular point without damaging any of the organs or vessels along the way."

The Love of a Wolf

I have the love of a wolf

Don’t consult ghosts in your time of need

Their affairs do not concern the living

I get my advice from the ground

Or putting my ear to a tree

I hear I’m doing quite well

I’m told I have the love of a wolf.

Life Lessons (not really)

I want to be 100 but life is so challenging, humans can be so hard on the living. Let’s all stay alive to see what magic cards fate deals us xox
