Concrete-Jet Robot

Fun little video about an idea for the ability for a house to be prefabricated and then constructed using a robot. That the designs could be drawn up the same way we use the CMC and laser cutter to create a whole house. It shows the potential of machines and robots in not only making objects at a small scale, but of making houses and what this might be applied to. That if we can make houses and other small buildings this could potentially become a way to erect an entire building. I found it interesting and I hope you find it interesting too.

Ray Kurzweil-Live Forever…

When discussing the theorist Ray Kurzweil and his ideas/predictions of the future I became very interested in his theory on the human body being able to live forever. I found an article going more into depth on this and it seems a little out there but i guess anything is possible. Over the years the life expectancy has risen, but not in huge jumps such as thirty to one hundred to 500 hundred, in which I find his idea more plausible. Although technology is constantly evolving and I imagine if not eternal than atleast life expectancy will rise do to some “nanobot” like object which could be placed in the body. This although is a bit scary and makes me think what will a human become? I find that we then would become more robotic.
