Retro Sub Worlds: First Successful Underbalanced Operation in Horizontal Section Uses Rotary Steerable and EMpulse™ Technology
From the International Association Directional Drilling (IADD)
Written by: IADD Editor Friday, October 08, 2010
The objective of this project was to drill a 6 1/8-in. horizontal section. Based on previous experience, the well’s high levels of torque and drag precluded using conventional directional drilling technology. . . . Read Complete Report
Is This What Became of Star Wars?
November 15, 2012
A lethal weapon that can vaporize targets and whole cities from miles away seems like the stuff of sci-fi movies, but Jesse and his team find that this technology could be all
too real. Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory interviews the real heavy-hitters of this story: Dr. Judy Woods and John Hutchison.
Ventura says he doesn’t know how the WTC towers were brought down but the use of this technology makes the most sense.
A much-watch presentation!
Robotics: Virtual Reality Puts Human in Rat World: ‘Beaming’ Technology Transforms Human-Animal Interaction (+) Selected Short Subject (Video)
from Science Daily
ScienceDaily (Oct. 31, 2012) — Using cutting-edge virtual reality technology, researchers have ‘beamed’ a person into a rat facility allowing the rat and human to interact with each other on the same scale.
Published October 31 in PLOS ONE, the research enables the rat to interact with a rat-sized robot controlled by a human participant in a different location. At the same time, the human participant (who is in a virtual environment) interacts with a human-sized avatar that is controlled by the movements of the distant rat. The authors hope the new technology will be used to study animal behaviour in a completely new way. . . . Read Complete Report

Creating realistic, humanoid robots seems to be one thing the technology world hasn’t conquered successfully yet. Humanoid robots always seem to look frightening — right in the deepest depths of the uncanny vally — but at Disney animatronics are key for many of their attractions and rides. Disney Research has come up with a system that accurately recreates the face of any human and their facial expressions and put them onto an animatronic bot.
Disney calls the process “face cloning” and they accomplish just it by first making a 3D scan of the face. During the scan the subject performs a variety of facial expressions while the computer usesmotion capture technology to capture every detail of the expressions made, right down to where the wrinkles appear and how the skin moves. The result is a digital mesh of the face that Disney can use to create a design of a realistic robot head that will replicate each of the expressions the subject made during motion capture. , , , Read Complete Report
Physical Face Cloning
Published on Aug 10, 2012 by DisneyResearchHub
We propose a complete process for designing, simulating, and fabricating synthetic skin for an animatronics character that mimics the face of a given subject and its expressions. The process starts with measuring the elastic properties of a material used to manufacture synthetic soft tissue. Given these measurements we use physics-based simulation to predict the behavior of a face when it is driven by the underlying robotic actuation. Next, we capture 3D facial expressions for a given target subject. As the key component of our process, we present a novel optimization scheme that determines the shape of the synthetic skin as well as the actuation parameters that provide the best match to the target expressions. We demonstrate this computational skin design by physically cloning a real human face onto an animatronics ﬁgure. . . . Posted with video at youtube

Secret NAZI War Technology Reported in Harper’s Magazine
Below is the full text of a most amazing article published in the October 1946 edition of Harper’s Magazine, just over a year after the end of WWII. This highly intriguing article reveals that the US government recovered many tons worth of secret documents from the Nazis. These astonishing documents showed beyond a shadow of a doubt that in almost all areas of scientific research, the Nazis were far ahead of the allied forces – often by a factor of 10 years or more.. . .
