Science and Technology News
Technopolis brings you interesting news in the science and technology world. The latest on technology development and the newest high tech devices. We comb the internet looking for the information you want to know.
-The World of Inception is approaching:
Two separate studies have proven a great deal of progress in the quest of interpreting what goes on, in the human mind. The idea of being able to interpret what happens on the mind while dreaming. One study by the University of Massachusetts was able to create a Brain Image of a Dream during a lucid dream. Scientists were able to catch a dreamer's brain activity with a fMRI machine successfully. The other study, lead by the University of Berkley with support of Arizona State University, plans to reconstruct images from our brain and have the plan to extend their research to dreams. BY using the same functional magnetic resonance imaging software they have been able to create a visual representation of what our brains see when we watch TV or a movie. The study plans to be able to catch what the brains see while dreaming. The future goal is to recreate what people see in their dreams and memories, which could give doctors major insight to the minds of the mentally impaired, stroke victims or those with neurological disorders.
-Finally a use for robotic dogs:
NSK, the Japanese manufacturer is working on a prototype for the world's first robotic guide dog for the blind. The company is planning to commercialize the robot by 2020, on the meantime the technology research on this prototype is planning for the dog to have integrated the capability to identify obstacles and stairs. The dog is planning to work with voice orders and commands and it will have incorporated GPS capabilities. This venture is being done in partnership with the University of Electro-Communications (UEC), and is regarded as an important and exciting and innovative assistive tech device. Soon guide dogs might be replaced with science and technology.
