  In many ways, the human race has advanced radically in a very short period of time. People born with missing limbs can now live full and “normal” lives, as can those who have suffered injuries and amputations. This is a far cry from the days when an amputated leg meant either life with a […]

A robot invasion doesn’t have to be scary, though it’s important to know that it isn’t science fiction anymore. When the film 2001 A Space Odyssey came out in 1968, Dr Floyd’s casual use of a teleconference robot during a space station layover was as much science fiction as the “space plane” he took to get […]

Can you envision a world where cars drive themselves and “drivers” around, even those who are impaired, can sit back and enjoy a very safe ride? Sound like something out of a science fiction movie?

When the word “drone” is mentioned, do you automatically think of spy operations and military strikes? While many people make this connection, it is only the tip of the technology iceberg when it comes to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
