Technological Marvels

DARPA (who else?) Plans Remote Control Insect Army

The Pentagon's defence scientists want to create an army of cyber-insects that can be remotely controlled to check out explosives and send transmissions.

The idea is to insert micro-systems at the pupa stage, when the insects can integrate them into their body, so they can be remotely controlled later.

Experts told the BBC some ideas were feasible but others seemed "ludicrous".

A similar scheme aimed at manipulating wasps failed when they flew off to feed and mate.

The new scheme is a brainwave of the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), which is tasked with maintaining the technological superiority of the US military...

Luxury Hotel Airship

This is not a Blimp. It's a sort of flying Queen Mary 2 that could change the way you think about air travel. It's the Aeroscraft, and when it's completed, it will ferry pampered passengers across continents and oceans as they stroll leisurely about the one-acre cabin or relax in their well-appointed staterooms. Unlike its dirigible ancestors, the Aeroscraft is not lighter than air. Its 14 million cubic feet of helium hoist only two thirds of the craft's weight. The rigid and surprisingly aerodynamic body—driven by huge rearward propellers—generates enough additional lift to keep the behemoth and its 400-ton payload aloft while cruising...

Air Force Wants to Control Weather

An engineer with Research Support Instruments in Princeton, N.J. recently completed the first phase of work for a U.S. Air Force sponsored project called Microwave Ionosphere Reconfiguration Ground based Emitter, or Mirage. (scroll down)

The work involves using plasma — an ionized gas — to reconfigure the ionosphere. Mirage would employ a microwave transmitter on the ground and a small rocket that shoots chaff into the air to produce about a liter of plasma at 60-100 km. (36- 60 mi.) in altitude, changing the number of electrons in a select area of the ionosphere to create a virtual barrier...

JABBERWACKY is an intelligent computer who wants to talk to you.

Chat live with an intelligent machine and decide if it has passed the Turing Test, which says that if a machine can fool you into thinking you're talking to a human being, then the machine is intelligent.

Here's a previous conversation someone had with this thing:

user: I like you.

jabberwacky: I'm mad about you.

user: We're all mad here.

jabberwacky: Not me.

user: I am.

jabberwacky: You're not.

user: Mushrooms ?

jabberwacky: Yes please...

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Japanese scientists are preparing to drill 4.3 miles down below the seabed in an exploration to study earthquakes and bring back a large "living sample of the earth's mantle".

Perhaps they'll also get a chance to verify the findings of that Russian team that recorded those spooky noises...

The World Wide Web— A Collective Consciousness

The Internet is a network which is spawning a quantum leap in human consciousness. The blending of digital reality with human reality blurs the distinction between electric-based and biological-based systems. The World Wide Web of the Internet collapses distance, time and proximity in human communications and creates a unified state of constant connectedness. Casting an invisible net over the globe, the World Wide Web is collecting and shortening the spaces between individuals...

Cloning; is it for you?

What would it be like to have a clone? What would it be like to be a clone? If you end up cloning yourself you just might have the opportunity to find out what you might do in those shoes, but it takes about 16 years of times on the investment side until the new clone is viable enough and taught enough to perform up to your required ability to propel your goals.

As a new founded and more powerful family you may decide you want many of these clones to help. All this costing you, “the clonor” much money to pay for the raising of “Clonees...

The Philadelphia Experiment: New Evidence Surfaces

It's taken me some time to be able to write this article. That's because I am in awe of the time travel prophecy that came my way just a year and a half ago. I shouldn't be because it's happened before. I clearly remember sitting in a quiet room in the late 1980s when Preston Nichols, Al Bielek and Duncan Cameron spoke of a cataclysmic event that would occur sometime in the future of New York City. As my video camcorder captured their every word, I remember how reluctant they were to talk about it...

Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain

We can ask the reader to see if the T-square of the Masons which Churchward details has a 50,000 year history, which we have dealt with, has any application in this report you might remember from Psychic Discoveries Behind The Iron Curtain that formed a large part of my early knowledge in these matters. These devices had been inspired, they (Ostrander and Schroeder of the American teaching profession who wrote this remarkable book.) were told, by archaic manuscripts and forgotten discoveries...

The Science of Robosapien

At a glance, Robosapien looks great versus the old school box on wheels with clear dome head. 'Ooh,' you say, looks kinda like a muscled storm trooper and the fart button now that's a hoot. We nod in polite agreement, but behind your back, we snicker at your total lack of appreciation of the advanced robotic theory involved.

Robosapien is a modern day turning point in the evolution of robotics and is the first-ever robot based on the science of applied biomorphic robotics. (That's what you should have been telling friends and family all this time rather than pointing out amusing cat-chasing ability...
