Crave: Robot battles human for golf supremacy, Ep. 127

4:40 /

This week on Crave, a robot named Jeff challenges golf pro Rory McIlroy to a game of golf on the driving range. We look at 3D-printed casts meant to counter itchiness, and researchers drive cockroaches with electrical signals in hopes of using the bugs for search-and-rescue missions.

Hey guys this is Steve and this is a very abbreviated episode of crave because it's Independence Day this -- in the -- they. We only a three day work -- Sony -- press. -- Do you ever wonder what it might be like to have the perfect golf swing I know I -- -- now you can't if you're robot named Jeff equipped with GPS and a driving range full of washing machines. Due to recent advertisement for the European golf tour the robotics golfer known as Jeff to come golf pro and two time major champion Rory medical -- In a battle of the washing machine. Unfortunately Rory was too much of a golfer for chip to handle and beat him soundly by landing a few golf shots inside washing machines from a good distance. She got the full video at the European tour's official. Different elements and something else might come in a photocopy -- -- just when you thought the Kinect might have finally run out of applications. Researchers at North Carolina State University -- -- the -- developed a system for cockroaches to perform search and rescue mission. Researchers were able to steer the roaches by sending small electrical impulses to wires attached to the bugs -- ten. The researchers then sketched a pathway for the roaches and had to -- system detect where they where relative to the path. Co author of the research project helper buster says that in the future they want to incorporate mapping and radio frequency techniques. That will allow us to use small groups cockroaches to explore and map disaster site. If you ever trapped in a disaster situation and see a small army of Roche is coming your way with little backpacks on don't freak out they are just there to rescue. Designer Jake evil has invented the cortex -- -- skeleton casts concept for AKA. The 3-D printed cast. Currently it's only -- concept but it's a very good confidence that we would work is by having the patient's arm and wrist or leg or whatever is broken. X -- in the 3-D scan it. Each cast would be individualized provide more support at the side of the injury. The cast are strong lightweight full of arable allowing the patient to reach that's typical -- its that is always hard to scratch so that's a win. The smell camera can capture smells that you might want to save -- -- to a friend. Using technology developed by the perfume industry designer -- Radcliffe has created a device called -- which captures and stores smells. The device works similarly to a 35 millimeter camera which captures light information of -- visual. The -- captures the molecular information in -- smell. You simply place an order object under -- glass dome which is connected to the device by tubes. The pump sucks the scent molecules and captures them -- -- -- -- That -- can then be sent to a lab for analysis and to be -- treated much like perfume. Red -- calls this idea sets are under -- and sees a future where smells will play a bigger role in our preservation of memories in photographs and video. Right guys that's -- show thank you very much for watching as always you can find all these games. -- cnet's crave blog crave dot cnet.com and we'll see you next time. The forecast for this week's crave giveaway is -- some of the Ukraine is giving -- -- -- hot smoke urban weather station which delivers real time data on temperature humidity barometric pressure and CO2 levels to your mobile device.
