Bitcoin Is Having An Impact On The Environment And Its Effects Are Huge

Bitcoin, the decentralized cryptocurrency that is "disrupting" the financial sector these days,  actually has an impact on our planet, a physical impact to be precise. No, we are not talking about its potential applications in our daily lives. We are referring to Bitcoin's electricity consumption, which is so huge it can compared to that of countries.

The Surprising Scientific Link Between Trump And Pickup Trucks

What is the least thing one might expect from an AI program? As far as creativity goes, drawing a connection between politics and pickup cars is nothing short of far-fetchedness, or so it seems. But, the truth is, that is exactly what a recent study published in PNAS touched on. No matter how weird you think this conclusion is, as you read this article, you will soon find out that the principle is actually quite simple, yet powerful enough to predict voting results!

Einsteinium Is What Happens When Cryptocurrency Meets Science

As Bitcoin's price keeps reaching new ATHs (i.e., All-Time-High) frequently, more and more people are venturing into the cryptoverse. The number of newcomers is so high it caused a very known exchange to halt subscriptions for new clients (i.e., Bittrex). However, what most people who are not very familiar with cryptocurrencies don't know, is that new cryptocoins are popping up every now and then. One of these coins is Einsteinium. No, we are not talking about the element Einsteinium, whose atomic number is 99. 

Scientists Create A Bee Robot That Can Fly, Dive, Swim And Break Out Of Water

Molecular robots that build and assemble molecules? Check. Micro-robots that are capable of flying, swimming, diving and breaking out of water? Check. As science and technology continue to delve into the "Nanoland" realm, it stands to reason that the micro-machine tendency will only keep solidifying as more and more scientific researches try to explore the micro-world.
In what appears to be a natural consequence of this trend, a team of scientists from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically-Inspired Engineering at Harvard, managed to create a RoboBee that is capable of flying, swimming, and flying again after diving out of water.

Scientists Build World's First Molecular Robot Capable Of Assembling Molecules

As William Gibson once put it, "The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed", science has been blurring the boundaries between the present and the future for quite some time. In case you ever need to prove this statement to someone, take this: scientists at The University of Manchester have built the first of its kind "molecular robot" that is capable of carrying out a set of simple tasks including building other molecules.
