This device turns our sweat into energy | Digital Trends Spanish

Generating energy without moving a single finger is already possible. Engineers from the University of California, San Diego have developed a new wearable device that converts sweat from human fingertips into an optimal source of energy for small sensors and electronic devices. It is a thin, flexible strip that can be placed on the tip of a finger like a band-aid or band-aid and that generates small amounts of electricity when the finger sweats or pressure is applied with the pad.

This robot perfectly imitates human facial expressions | Digital Trends Spanish

A basic argument in almost all dystopian stories is that in the future machines may be almost the same as humans and it seems that reality is dangerously close to fiction. A team of engineering researchers from Columbia University in New York has developed EVA, a humanoid (specifically a head) capable of replicating human facial expressions. Hod Lipson, who leads the development team, explains in the statement that the idea for EVA was born a few years ago after he and his students realized that the robots in the lab stared blankly. To make the prototype capable of imitating the gestures of a human, artificial muscles made with 3D prints and formed by cables and motors were placed on it. These cables pull specific points on the robot's face so that it can make facial expressions rela...
