News of high technology: try the burger with meat "from a test tube"?
It's only been seven days since we last met, but the calm does not come high technology in the world for a minute! While we're discussing Elon Musk, Australia has emerged Space Agency, and gives the Burger King burger synthetic meat. We have ourselves intrigued, so let's go!
1 The Australian Space Agency (the ASA, yes, there are such) wants to use the country's experience in the field of mining in remote and difficult areas (this is Australia, after all) in the preparation of the new program, which allows to extract water and other useful resources on the moon .... First of all we are talking about the use of autonomous drilling wells on the natural satellite of the Earth.
The water is very important. It is necessary to sustain life and the functioning of the lunar colony, the construction of which is planned in the near future already. It is needed for the production of rocket fuel that will be used for future missions.
But here's the ASA state budget for the next four years is only $ 41 million. For comparison, the annual budget of the US space agency NASA is about $ 20 billion. If only Bruce Willis persuade free wells to drill!
2 Scientists few possible Skynet - so Boston Dynamics robots get 3D-vision.
The company bought Kinema Systems, which uses machine learning technology to give robots a three-dimensional vision, you need to determine the location and movement of various objects. With this purchase at Boston Dynamics now has the software needed for their robots finally become practical and effective outside of the laboratory, which means that soon they can be seen, for example, at various warehouses that require movement various objects of different sizes.
By the way, the three-dimensional machine vision inspection Pick System technology has been implemented in the new version Handle robot. There a couple of cars very nimbly moved the boxes from the pallet on the conveyor.
3 In the meantime, hackers are not appeased - they took and broke the autopilot Tesla non-standard methods.
In the first experiment, hackers have shown that wipers vehicle can be activated from outside by means of specially designed images on a large screen TV. The second attempt to deceive the autopilot was carried out by means of glued to the road marks, which are able to bring down the system confusing. Drawing on the marked road extra point, the hackers have really changed the direction of the car - he went into the oncoming lane.
According to the company, Tesla car owners have to be ready to take the wheel even during the autopilot engaged. Therefore, if hackers manage to cheat and the vehicle with the marking, the driver will be able to come back in the right direction or to slow down. Tell it to fans of seats in the back seat, while Tesla taking them to work!
4 Even the one word "whopper" in many appetizing. But what if, instead of the usual meat cutlet is synthetic? The American fast food Burger King is now possible to find a version of the flagship whopper "meat-free": with a chop of plant-based, which look and taste identical to the real beef. Despite the fact that "it is impossible whopper" contains 15 percent less fat and 90 percent less cholesterol nor customers nor staff will notice the difference. Hamburger without meat would cost about one dollar (63 rubles) is more expensive version with beef. However, it will still be accompanied by mayonnaise sauce, so vegans hardly suitable.
To make it, use an ordinary recipe, which is used to create other hamburgers: plant base uses heme derived from soybean roots - only cutlet is shaped characteristic for all the cutlets Burger King.
Maybe in the future we need to completely get rid of the slaughter carcasses billion annually by clicking on identical plant analogs "meat".
