Always like to post this when someone puts something up about the US suits. It's not military, and it's not as powerful, but hey, it's in production.

MIT spinout unveils new more powerful direct-diode laser

Image

The bottom line here appears to be that the company has put together laser technology that when deployed, will be smaller than others that have similar strength, and will be both more compact, and more efficient; making it perhaps, at last, suitable for creating laser guns like we’ve been seeing in science-fiction movies for years.

Bionic Arm Powered by Hydrogen Peroxide.


Image

"Our design does not have superhuman strength or capability, but it is closer in terms of function and power to a human arm than any previous prosthetic device that is self-powered and weighs about the same as a natural arm," said researcher Michael Goldfarb, a roboticist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.

Combine that with porous titanium posts embedded in bone and end covers that skin can grow into

plus direct sensing/stimulation of nerve impulses. Hollywood-style bionics start to look like a real possibility.

These automated aerial drones concern me more than the exoskeleton suits do:

Computers rule Wall Street


Image

High-frequency trading, also known as algorithmic or programmed trading, relies on software to determine when to buy and sell shares, usually based on a particular pattern or technical level in the market. These trades can happen several times a minute.

IBM unveils chips that mimic the human brain



Image

IBM has unveiled a new experimental computer chip that it says mimics the human brain in that it perceives, acts and even thinks.

US Army May Give Robots Their Own Base; Allow Them To Roam Freely!



Image




Currently, most battlefield ground robots are tele-operated, meaning they require someone to control the system from a stand-off distance. This method is labor intensive. Researchers have been developing software that would allow the machines to operate more freely, and take the workload off of troops.

A future for drones: Automated killing

Image

The demonstration laid the groundwork for scientific advances that would allow drones to search for a human target and then make an identification based on facial-recognition or other software. Once a match was made, a drone could launch a missile to kill the target.

Nanotube Cables Hit a Milestone: As Good as Copper

Image
For the first time, researchers have made carbon-nanotube electrical cables that can carry as much current as copper wires. These nanotube cables could help carry more renewable power farther in the electrical grid, provide lightweight wiring for more-fuel-efficient vehicles and planes, and make connections in low-power computer chips. Researchers at Rice University have now demonstrated carbon-nanotube cables in a practical system and are designing a manufacturing line for commercial production.

Army Developing Drones That Can Recognize Your Face From a Distance


Image

Of a handful of contracts just handed out by the Army, two are notable for their unique ISR capabilities. One would arm drones with facial recognition software that can remember faces so targets can’t disappear into crowds. The other sounds far more unsettling: a human behavior engine capable of stacking informant info against intelligence data against other evidence to predict a person’s intent. That’s right: the act of determining whether you are friend or foe could be turned over to the machines.
