I see no way these could ever go wrong.

What would the end point be? "a team of robots that must protect and clone a lone surviving human baby."
Sounds very short-lived.

A self repairing computer that never crashes? Let's see that **** run vista.

they made them so that they can seance infrared light. they bump into a beam of infrared and then turn around because they essentially cant go through it.
User avatar #16 to #12 - mountainyard ONLINE (02/19/2013) [-]
So they see the infrared light and avoid it?
That has to be a mental response, seeing as light has next to no mass...
User avatar #19 to #16 - formerlurker (02/19/2013) [-]
So wait, they technically invented a psychological force field?? Awesome...

Jesus Christ
That's amazing.

I still don't get through exactly what sense they sensed the light though.
I hate it when articles like this skip around the details, they're just padding for the title, which normally doesn't make any sense because it's so oversimplified, to attract the attention of readers.
Now I'm pissed off.
But still amazed.
Weird sensation.
User avatar #463 to #141 - RandomAnonGuy (02/20/2013) [-]
Touch. The camera sensed the light, the electrodes made them feel as though they had bumped into a wall.
User avatar #483 to #463 - wiredguy (02/20/2013) [-]
Oh, they had a camera on them?

Makes sense.

So technically they intook the light via optics, which wired into their brains and made them perceive a kinetic sensation.
It's not really touch, but I see what you mean.
Thanks,
User avatar #491 to #483 - RandomAnonGuy (02/21/2013) [-]
The sense is still touch, regardless of whether or not they're technically "touching" it.
User avatar #493 to #491 - wiredguy (02/21/2013) [-]
No, I was trying to ask through what method they actually sensed the infrared itself, which wasn't part of them, it was a camera.
But my question was worded terribly, hey, so thank you for pointing ut out to me.
User avatar #479 to #19 - lockstin (02/20/2013) [-]
They can use it for next generation dog kennels.

I just found this article regarding the self repairing computer: blogs.wsj.com/tech-europe/2013/02/18/the-self-repairing-computer-that-never-crashes/

Quote:
"The next stage is to teach the computer to rewrite its own code"

This is how it begins. We're ****** .

Own thought process is how it begins.

That meteorite was pretty accurate to land right on top of someone

It didn't land on anyone, just caused a sonic boom that shattered windows and damaged buildings.

I thumbed you back up because you didn't get the joke. Reread the meteorite one carefully.

#168 to #159 - neokun (02/19/2013) [-]
About ******* time...
#174 to #159 - pornoranger (02/19/2013) [-]
a virus is just a carrier for DNA/RNA. that alone doesn't make it dangerous at all. it's the self replicating genome that makes it harmful.
User avatar #475 to #174 - TheOriginalNerd (02/20/2013) [-]
but its not like there are ******* strands of DNA floating about

and what do you think is inside those viruses?
#490 to #475 - pornoranger (02/21/2013) [-]
a non replicating genome.
virus proteins are quite like usb drives that can be loaded with information.
as long as their content isn't, they're not dangerous at all. please dont't try to argue with me, accept it or stay stupid.
#108 - azraelthemage (02/19/2013) [-]
That last one sounds familiar.

It's a pretty common explanation for a lot of post-apocalyptic fiction, particularly zombie ficton.

SCIENTISTS ENGINEER NEW VIRUS THAT CAN KILL CANCER

WILL SMITH, STOP THIS BEFORE ITS TOO LATE
User avatar #350 to #342 - darkjacky (02/19/2013) [-]
actually a simple salt can kill cancer
User avatar #355 to #350 - doyouevenupload (02/19/2013) [-]
really?
User avatar #417 to #350 - RandomAnonGuy (02/20/2013) [-]
No, no it really can't.
Seriously, the only trials ever conducted shrank the tumour. They didn't prevent metastasis, they didn't remove or "Cure" the cancer, and most importantly it was done on mice.
These things don't always translate over well into the human body, plus how do you expect to get this stuff into the brain or other sensitive organs?
A simple salt can not "Cure" cancer. It might help, that's a possibility, but its effects would be lesser than or equal to that of eating fruit and exercising to improve your immune system.
User avatar #433 to #417 - darkjacky (02/20/2013) [-]
how do you expect to get this stuff into the brain or other sensitive organs?
your blood... a salt will divide into its ions just like NaCl does(not in all cases)
User avatar #437 to #433 - RandomAnonGuy (02/20/2013) [-]
At which point it's a different chemical and has different properties.

I looked up the one about animals touching light. this is the title of the article:
"Researchers give animals the ability to feel infrared light; humans next"

umm... we can already feel infared light. it's called heat.
