Imagine upwards of eight tons pressing down on your body as you make the descent into the icy waters of the deepest parts of the ocean. The human body isn’t meant to withstand that sort of pressure, so we must utilize devices like the OpenROV to get our exploration fix if we don’t happen to have millions of dollars on hand for more sophisticated equipment.
The Cessna citation X was recently confirmed by the FAA as the fastest civilian aircraft in the world blowing past the current record holder, the Gulfstream G650 at a speed of mach .935 to the Gulfstreams unimpressive Mach .925.

In this video, the robot does not know how to move a knife safely and learns through Interactive zero-G and tablet touch user interaction on Baxter for grocery checkout application. With high degree-of-freedom manipulators, one needs to find a trajectory that is not only valid from a geometric point-of-view (i.e., feasible and obstacle-free, the criterion that most existing planners focus on), but also satisfy the user's preferences.
“Not to worry, I’ll just print another hand.” This statement would belong in a work of fiction a few years ago, but today, it is reality for those missing fingers or limbs. Prosthetics have come a long way from the archaic image of a pirate hobbling around his ship on a wooden peg leg.
