The experiment involved two people: one was in India, and the other in France … The signal then translated into a code and was sent via the internet to the cap of a receiver in the other country.” Here is news video uploaded to Youtube on September 7, 2014 describing the experiment in more detail.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology has created a new phase changling material that is built from wax and foam. The material was developed by a group of researchers at MIT and is capable of switching between hard and soft states. The robots built from this cool material would be able to operate mor like a biological organism. This material could sent search and rescue missions onto a whole new level.
