Video: Boston Dynamics To Start Selling Creepy Robot Dogs

Boston Dynamics will begin selling its creepy robot dogs to the public “within months,” according to CEO Marc Raibert, who told The Verge “We’re just doing some final tweaks to the design” after “testing them relentlessly” – hopefully to obey the three laws of robotics.

Spot is currently being tested in a number of “proof-of-concept” environments, Boston Dynamics’ CEO Marc Raibert told The Verge, including package delivery and surveying work. And although there’s no firm launch date for the commercial version of Spot, it should be available within months, said Raibert, and certainly before the end of the year. -The Verge

Raibert brought the company’s ‘Spot’ dogs to Amazon’s Re:MARS conference in Las Vegas this week, an event focused on machine learning, advanced robotics and space exploration. On the first day of the event, two Boston Dynamics employees trotted out a pair of Spots to dazzle the crowd, and freak out a police dog (until a toy offering was deemed sufficient for friendship).

One Spot robot mounted with 3D cameras can map their environment and perform tasks such as track worker progress or identify hazards at construction sites. Models equipped with a robot arm can also open doors and manipulate objects.

Despite minor technical difficulties, the event went well for Boston Dynamics – owned by Japan’s SoftBank. One thing was clear; these dogs are really easy to control.

Using a D-pad, you can steer the robot as you would any RC car or mechanical toy. A quick tap on the video feed streamed live from the robot’s front-facing camera lets you select a destination for it to walk to, and another tap lets you assume control of a robot arm mounted on top of the chassis. It all feels very intuitive. -The Verge

According to Raibert, Boston Dynamics will be selling “athletic intelligence” through its robots.

Think of it like Amazon’s AWS business, but instead of offering computing power on tap, its robotic mobility.

The vast majority of bots in use in warehouses and factories today are only able to perform rote tasks, planned in advance down to the millimeter. But if robots are going to work alongside humans in more dynamic environments, they need to be able to react to hazards and changing conditions. These are eminently humans skills: tasks we complete without thinking — like catching a ball — but that stump all but the most advanced bots.

Onstage, Raibert demonstrated these skills by showing a video of Spot robot being frustrated in its attempts to open a door. The robot grapples at the door handle only to be shoved away by an engineer with a hockey stick. “We think this is one of the most important things we do,” said Raibert. “The [robots] can tolerate deviance around expected behavior.” -The Verge

At present, several construction companies in Japan are testing Spot to oversee the work progress on sites. “There’s a remarkable number of construction companies we’re talking to,” said Raibert, adding “But we have some other applications that are very promising — [including] in hostile environments where the cost of having people there is high.”

JET FUEL AND DIESEL CAN NOW BE MADE FROM PLASTIC BAGS, WATER BOTTLES & DAILY WASTE

Scientists have found a novel way to turn daily plastic waste products like water bottles and plastic bags into jet fuel.

Researchers at Washington State University in the US melted plastic waste at high temperature with activated carbon, a processed carbon with increased surface area, to produce jet fuel.

“Waste plastic is a huge problem worldwide. This is a very good, and relatively simple, way to recycle these plastics,” said Hanwu Lei, an associate professor at WSU.

The research, published in the journal Applied Energy, tested low-density polyethene and mixed a variety of waste plastic products, like water bottles, milk bottles, and plastic bags, and ground them down to around three millimetres, or about the size of a grain of rice. The plastic granules were then placed on top of activated carbon in a tube reactor at a high temperature, ranging from 430 degree Celsius to 571 degrees Celsius.

The carbon is a catalyst or a substance that speeds up a chemical reaction without being consumed by the reaction.

“Plastic is hard to break down. You have to add a catalyst to help break the chemical bond. There is a lot of hydrogen in plastics, which is a key component in fuel,” Lei said.

Once the carbon catalyst has done its work, it can be separated out and re-used on the next batch of waste plastic conversion. The catalyst can also be regenerated after losing its activity.

After testing several different catalysts at different temperatures, the best result they had produced a mixture of 85 percent jet fuel and 15 percent diesel fuel.

“We can recover almost 100 per cent of the energy from the plastic we tested,” Lei said.

“The fuel is very good quality, and the byproduct gasses produced are high quality and useful as well,” he said.

He also said the method for this is easily scalable. It could work at a large facility or even on farms, where farmers could turn plastic waste into diesel.

Russia to make its own show about Chernobyl that implicates the US

[ Editor’s note: The HBO miniseries Chernobyl has been excellent TV; many of my friends have enjoyed it. However, I found it quite hard to watch, as I have an aversion to lies purporting to be truth. The HBO version sticks closely to the official narrative, that somehow the incompetent, reckless operators caused their RBMK reactor to mysteriously explode, thus releasing a huge amount of radioactive fallout over Europe.

This, of course, is a load of rubbish, nothing of the sort happened. Rather, unknown saboteurs placed a mini nuke below the reactor core and blew it up. Radiation released was minimal, as the core and the fuel were destroyed in the initial plasma ball.

Read Dimitri Khalezov’s essay on the subject, it is highly detailed and contains all the real facts:

DIMITRI KHALEZOV: CHERNOBYL and MANHATTAN

Now, the Russians are making their own version of the Chernobyl story, in response to HBO’s attempt; and it will be extremely interesting to see how far towards the whole truth the Russians chose to go, especially if they chose to acknowledge/reveal the use of a mini nuke. Ian ]

Russia to make its own show about Chernobyl that implicates the US

Russian state TV is working on its own version of Chernobyl, a series based on the worst nuclear accident in history.

The NTV drama will deviate from the acclaimed HBO series – and from historical reality – by claiming that the CIA was involved in the disaster.

Director Aleksey Muradov claims it will show “what really happened back then”.

HBO’s miniseries, which concluded on Monday, received the highest ever score for a TV show on IMdB, as well as a 9.1 rating on Russian equivalent Kinopoisk.

But in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda, Russia’s most widely-read tabloid, Mr Muradov said his version of the show “proposes an alternative view on the tragedy in Pripyat“.

“There is a theory that Americans infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant,” he told the paper. “Many historians do not rule out the possibility that on the day of the explosion, an agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was working at the station.”

Chernobyl disaster: ‘I didn’t know the truth’
Will Gompertz reviews Chernobyl

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the Russian culture ministry has contributed 30 million rubles ($463,000; £363,000) to the show.

The No. 4 reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear plant exploded on 26 April 1986 in the Ukrainian city of Pripyat.

At least 31 people were killed in the immediate aftermath, and the effects continue to be felt to this day.
What did Russia think of HBO’s Chernobyl?

There has been plenty of praise in Russia for the authenticity of Chernobyl.

Izvestia newspaper declared it a more ‘realistic’ portrayal of the era than most Russian films manage. There’s also admiration of how the series conveys the heroism of ordinary people.

But there’s been a crescendo of criticism, too. One columnist declared the show a plot to undermine Russia’s current atomic agency. Others called it American ‘propaganda’, blackening the image of the USSR and exaggerating the callousness of the Soviet response.

No-one disputes that it’s got people talking. They’re been busy sharing their own Chernobyl stories on social media, with younger Russians often hearing them for the first time. So one Twitter user thanked the series for ‘giving us back our history.’

In the end, as one commentator concludes, the main reason for the backlash is likely a feeling of shame that it was the US that told the tale of Chernobyl, not Russia itself.

The show has been particularly unpopular with Russian state TV and the country’s tabloid newspapers.

Speaking to TV website Teleprogramma, columnist Anatoly Wasserman said: “If Anglo-Saxons film something about Russians, it definitely will not correspond to the truth.”

This, he continued, was because “they don’t like us” and “they cannot understand us”.

Komsomolskaya Pravda published several negative articles about the show – including one floating a conspiracy theory that it was produced by competitors of Rosatom, Russia’s state nuclear company, to ruin the country’s reputation as a nuclear power.

But reviewers in independent media outlets praised its writer Craig Mazin for his minute attention to detail.

Slava Malamud, a US-based journalist who grew up during the Soviet era in what is now Moldova, wrote on the independent Russian news site Meduza that “the respect and meticulousness the show’s creators brought to their work is breathtaking“.

“Like I see the license plate for a car in one scene has the real numbers for the [Kiev] region,” he said. “Who’s going to notice that in America or England?”
A challenge to rosy views of Russia’s past

Adam Robinson, BBC Monitoring – The world through its media

For the Kremlin, the topic of history is a highly sensitive one – especially about the Soviet Union.

Official media now tend to paint a sanitised, idealised vision of the USSR, and portray Putin’s Russia as its spiritual heir.

This makes it easy to see any critical view of the Soviet past as an attack on the Kremlin’s ideological power base.

It’s a narrative it seeks to completely control and guard from outside influences – particularly from a West it sees as hostile.

Some Russians feel the version of reality offered by Kremlin-controlled media is not entirely unlike the lies told by the Soviet state.

As a result, perhaps the most dangerous idea was the key question running though Chernobyl – what is the cost of lies?

Boeing, Obama, A Gold Watch, And 346 Dead

Democrats want to make Donald Trump the issue in 2020.

If they do, they will lose again, the way they lost in 2016.

Instead, the 2020 election should be about corporate power in all of its manifestations, its hold on the culture, our country and both major political parties.

Take the case of the two Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane crashes — the Lion Air crash off the coast of Jakarta, Indonesia in October 2018 that killed all 189 on board and the Ethiopian Airlines crash in March 2019 that killed all 157 on board.

During his time as President of the United States, Barack Obama promoted the sale of Boeing planes — including the 737 Max 8 planes — around the world.

In November 2011, in Bali, Indonesia, President Obama announced an agreement between Boeing and Lion Air.

“For the last several days I’ve been talking about how we have to make sure that we’ve got a presence in this region, that it can result directly in jobs at home,” Obama said.

“And what we see here — a multibillion-dollar deal between Lion Air — one of the fastest-growing airlines not just in the region, but in the world — and Boeing is going to result in over 100,000 jobs back in the United States of America, over a long period of time.”

“This represents the largest deal, if I’m not mistaken, that Boeing has ever done.  We are looking at over 200 planes that are going to be sold.”

In September 2014, Obama met with the Prime Minister of Ethiopia at the White House.

“We’re strong trading partners,” Obama said. “And most recently, Boeing has done a deal with Ethiopia, which will result in jobs here in the United States.”

“I’m expecting a gold watch from Boeing at the end of my presidency because I know I’m on the list of top salesmen at Boeing,” Obama said at an export forum at the White House in September 2013.

Of course, Obama got more than just a gold watch from Boeing when he left the White House.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Boeing donated $10 million to the Obama presidential library and museum in Chicago. And earlier this year, Obama dropped in to speak to a Boeing leadership retreat at a swank resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. Obama gratefully waived his $400,000 speaking fee.

While pushing the sale of Boeing planes around the world, the Obama administration was at the same time fast tracking a dangerous deregulatory process at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that effectively put the corporations in charge of the safety certification process — and that in effect put Boeing in charge of certifying it’s faulty MCAS software that led to the tragedies in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The FAA certification system is known as the Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) program. Under that program, companies like Boeing can appoint their own representatives to act in the place of FAA inspectors.

In 2004, one of the unions representing FAA inspectors – Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS) – criticized the proposed ODA program as “premature and reckless.”

“Allowing the aviation industry to self-regulate in this manner is nothing more than the blatant outsourcing of inspector functions and handing over inherently governmental oversight activities to non-governmental, for-profit entities,” PASS wrote in its 2004 comments to the FAA.

Would a more independent FAA have prevented the two recent Boeing crashes?

Yes, says Paul Hudson of Flyer’s Rights.

“The ODA program has allowed Boeing to effectively self certify the MCAS software as safe,” Hudson told Corporate Crime Reporter.

“Boeing ‘s CEO, whistleblowers and FAA now admit they failed to properly test, fully connect, or even disclose MCAS, much less its deadly defects and overpowering features — not to the FAA higher ups, not to airline pilots or not even to its own test pilots.”

“Air travel has gotten much safer due to both safety regulation and technical advancements,” Hudson said. “But profit seeking over safety at all costs is destroying both safety and profits.”

“Some Boeing safety inspectors have summed up the current culture as ‘safety is king but schedule is God,” Hudson said. “I asked Boeing in December after the Lion Air crash to ground the Max. Boeing refused.”

Viewers discretion is adviced, here on Totalrehash, you will find the real reasons for secret technologies, and that there is proof of a more sinister explanation for “aliens”, in this movie they push a “disclosure” and as I see it, it’s the roll out of the “United” world aka NWO, this is the Beast system in the book of Revelation.

Aliens are the demons, and fallen angels told from the Bible, Cancer is already very possible to cure. Read my Medicin section.

Reason I repost this video is, to point out that the end is near, and bits and pieces of the evidence is hidden in plain sight. Be aware, and always keep in mind, what you are seeing, is the deception, they only need to give you a little chip for DNA enhancement, to join in the computerized NWO ultra tech, Mark of the Beast society.

They will promise prolonged life span, even eternal life. Don’t believe it. You will seize to be human, and non redeemable. Destined for the lake of fire, that burns for forever.

Video: World’s First Raspberry-Picking Robot Completes Field Tasks

We have spoken on many occasions about the new wave of investments in automation could stimulate the economy after the next economic reset.

And we have also offered many sobering reminders that robots will likely displace 20% to 25% of current jobs (40 million jobs) by 2030. So, in our search for robots that will take jobs of the bottom 90% of Americans, this week, we have stumbled upon the world’s first raspberry-picking robot.

According to The Guardian, the new robot can pick upwards of 25,000 raspberries per day, outpacing human workers that pick around 15,000 in an eight-hour shift.

University of Plymouth spinout company Fieldwork Robotics is commercializing automation technology that will allow robots to harvest raspberries. With a successful pilot run, the robot could be gearing up to pick other fruits and vegetables.

The prototype robot cost $890,000 to develop, can detect ripe fruit with its extensive camera system. Guided by sensors and 3D cameras, it uses picking arms to reach into the bush once the ripe fruit is identified, gently grabs it and plucks it from the bush and drops it into a collection bin.

A farm in West Sussex, a county in the south of England, had successfully tested the robot in August 2018. Researchers from the company collected enough data from the trial that will allow the company to push towards commercialization in 2020.

Video: What Is Really Behind the Recent Wave of UFO Disclosure Reports? LA Marzulli

LA Marzulli stands at the ready to bring the most accurate information regarding the topic of UFO disclosure and LA is at the top of the list as far quality disclosure. Recently on his website, he offered a

From LAMarzulli.net

UFODISCLOSURE

Last night on Tucker Carlson the ongoing UFO disclosure was “ramped up” to a new level. Tucker was interviewing Luis Elizondo. Toward the end of the interview Tucker asks Alizondo this:

“Do you believe, based on your decade of serving in the US government on this question that the US government has in its possession any material from one of these aircraft.”

On the clip, you can see very clearly that Elizondo is uncomfortable with the questions… or his he just pretending to be? He replies:

“Whew…I do yes.”

Carlson presses the point,

“Do you think the US government has debris in its possession right now.”

Elizondo replies,

“Unfortunately Tucker I really have to be careful about my NDA, I really can’t go into a lot more detail than that but..ah… simply put, yes.

There you have it! I discussed this in an earlier blog that the next part of disclosure would be this. In other words, the powers that be—The Deep State—would trot out someone who would state that the US government has in its possession wreckage from a UFO. I specifically pointed to the Roswell debris as a possible contender. Elizondo spilled the beans as it were and that on Prime-time, national news.

It’s happening and too many people still won’t wake up to what is coming…The Great Deception. I will address this in depth on the next Acceleration Radio!

This is an example of the information that LA Marzulli reveals in the following interview<

The LA Marzulli Interview

The tighter the noose grows around the necks of the Deep State, the more UFO disclosure stories come to light. Is there a distinctive correlation, or is this a case that 70 years of cover up has finally run its course?

Why your “smart home” might be an incredibly STUPID idea

When Google croaked over the weekend, a cascading tidal wave of web services came crashing down, including the Google cloud, Gmail, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and even portions of Amazon. Google owns the “Nest” brand which promises “smart home” functionality to control your home through a Google app on your mobile device. But during the outage, people were locked out of their smart homes… and many were unable to control home appliances such as air conditioners or lights.

It turns out that a “smart home” is an incredibly stupid idea. If you can’t even open your front door without getting permission from a remotely processed Google login procedure that requires the smooth functioning of routers, servers and the power grid, you’ve put yourself in a stupid situation. Do you really want Google — now the most evil corporation in the world — to control your access to your own home? Do you even want Google knowing when you’re entering and leaving your home?

Remember: Facebook just committed an act of terrorism by leaking the identity of a conservative to The Daily Beast, which then used that information to publicly dox the individual, encouraging violent left-wing lunatics to raid his home and try to kill him. There’s no doubt Google has similarly vindictive libtards working for it, and if one of those libtards gained access to your smart home log files, they could both dox you and publicly publish your home access schedules, allowing criminals and Antifa terrorists to target you with remarkable precision. (Similarly, Twitter recently banned hundreds of Tiananmen Square dissident accounts, going all-in with the communist Chinese regime that tortures and organ harvests political dissidents. Those are the values of Twitter and its war criminal CEO Jack Dorsey.)

Physical keys don’t need the internet to work (and that’s what makes them great)

Smart people have physical keys that open physical locks. The reason that’s smart is because physical keys require:

No updates or downloads
No license agreements or terms of service
No electricity or internet functionality
No software, firmware or vaporware
No user rights, user levels or passwords
No encryption, no biometrics and no spying on you

Thus, in a world dominated by evil Google and its surveillance infrastructure that wants to control every last detail of your life, physical keys are pure genius.

My podcast explains much more. Catch all my daily podcasts at:

Here’s an interesting question for you. What’s the value of your “smart” home system when the cloud doesn’t function? That answer is obvious: no value. In fact, it’s a detriment, as it prevents you from accessing your own home.

In the same way you might compare a “smart home” to a physical key, you might also compare cryptocurrency to cash (or gold). What’s the value of cryptocurrency when the power grid is down? Zero. But gold, silver, cash or even ammo is all immediately usable, with or without electricity.

In fact, all firearms function perfectly without software or electricity. That’s why firearms are reliable: They operate on the laws of physics and chemistry, not the fake promises of Elon Musk or a bunch of incompetent over-libtarded Google engineers (because Google no longer hires people who are qualified to write code. Instead, it hires people who are sufficiently progressive to fit in with the Google cult that despises normal people.)

If you turn your life over to evil tech giants, don’t be surprised when they abuse their power, lock you out of your home, release your private details to a lunatic mob and de-platform you so that you can’t go public with what they’ve done to you. That’s how Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and all the other tech giants operated. They’re pure evil. Why would you want them to control your home security
