Coming Techs of this week : 17 July 2017

Robot & Artificial Intelligence

Transformer robots can be printed on demand in just 13 minutes

A new robot-builder is faster than most takeaways. It works by bending wire that already has motors attached into different shapes, using a process its designers call 1D printing. Once the robot has performed its job, it can simply be flattened and fed back into the system to be recycled into a new type of robot. [More ]

Robotic landers could start mining the moon as early as 2020

A permanent robotic mining outpost on the moon could be on the cards as early as 2020. The Florida-based company Moon Express has raised over $45 million in funding for three expeditions that will culminate in a mission to mine moon rocks and return them to Earth. [More]

Science

NASA Planning August Release of Mars Robotic Exploration Architecture

NASA said that architecture is on track to be presented at a meeting in late August of a National Academies committee reviewing progress NASA has made implementing the planetary science decadal survey published in 2011. [More]

How does an animal with no heart circulate oxygen?

One of the crucial evolutionary developments that permitted multicellular animals to come into being during, or shortly before, the Cambrian period was a circulatory system. Small creatures, consisting of one or a few cells, can absorb enough oxygen for their respiratory requirements directly from the water they inhabit. [More]

Technology

Researchers 3D print a soft artificial heart that works a lot like a real one

The science of prosthetics has been advancing by leaps and bounds over the last few years, and research into soft robotics has been especially complementary. The same techniques that go into making a robot arm that flexes and turns like a real one can go into making more complex, subtle organs — like the heart, as Swiss researchers have demonstrated.

Oculus’ next step? A $200, untracked wireless headset for next year

Oculus is working on a $200 standalone headset that will serve as a bridge between the mobile-phone-based VR holsters like Samsung’s Gear VR and PC-tethered high-end VR headsets like the Oculus Rift, according to a new report from Bloomberg. According to the report, the headset, codenamed Pacific, is set to launch in 2018 and will be shown to developers in October, which is when Oculus holds its annual Connect conference. [More]

Startup

Insticator raises $5.2M to help publishers make their stories more interactive

Insticator is announcing that it has raised $5.2 million in Series A funding. The startup allows online publishers to add quizzes, polls and other interactive elements (either created by Insticator or by the publisher themselves) to their stories. They then make money from those widgets by running ads in them, too. [More]

 

An app that allows you to see a doctor in minutes has been backed with $26.1 million

Push Doctor, a startup with a platform that allows you to speak to a doctor in minutes via a video call, has raised $26.1 million (£20.2 million) from a cohort of investors. Push Doctor charges people £20 for a 10 minute consultation via a smartphone app or website. Following the consultation, the patient can then be issued with a prescription, a sick note, or a GP referral. [More]

 

Healthcare

By 2025, Blockchain, IoT, Machine Learning Will Converge in Healthcare

Within the next five to ten years, healthcare organizations are likely to have access to integrated health IT platforms based on an emerging set of information management technologies including blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning, predicts Frost & Sullivan. [more]

Artificial Intelligence ushers in the era of superhuman doctors

Non-human intelligence will soon be a standard part of your medical care – if it isn’t already. Can you trust it? AI-driven diagnostic apps are already available. And it’s not just Silicon Valley types swapping clinic visits for diagnosis via smartphone. The UK National Health Service (NHS) is trialling an AI-assisted app to see if it performs better than the existing telephone triage line. [more]
