hello and welcome to technology updates on today's show christmas comes early for moscow's young innovators. and novel animation up brings films to the big screen. a moscow state university gives a whole new meaning to wearable technology but first new year may still be a couple of days off but they've already been plenty of festivities this month. on something a lot of. the take no spark in nano technology sensor was officially opened in the town of troy just south of moscow. aims to become a launch pad for high tech startups by bringing together all the facilities and know how to develop and produce innovative goods all into one roof while the town's strong research base made it the natural choice of location the pog received

a large investment from ross nano and the company's chairman was there to make sure the money had been put to good use becky about twenty five startups should already be created this year there are twenty five startups alone in the year the center was set up then i expect tens or even hundreds of startups to emerge out of here in the near future and today you see in the creation of these innovation powerhouses with your own. lasers are a key direction for techno spark so we went to a festive projects which is also part of the regional innovation cluster to see what's cooking the family run business has been producing ultra short pulls lasers for fifteen years it's emerged out of the birthplace of the laser believe it to physical institute and they continue to work closely together. second leases are already frequently used for increasing and cutting to from glass but the full spectrum of after cations for this type of laser is. only just being realized however it's hard to imagine exactly how short a benzo second day is. then so second is one four trillion or one millionth of
10:33 pm
a billionth of a second there are way more potential seconds in a second then yes the universe has existed so to put it into context it takes around three hundred million femto seconds for us to blink. if you were travelling at the speed of light you would only move north point three michael b.c. one tenth the second which is about the size of a virus for such a miniscule amount of time the potential for this technology is immense. the main benefit of second lasers is the low level of heat transfer almost no heat is transferred to the surrounding areas the material is removed through a process known as cold ablation in other laser systems remove material by melting it evaporation or micro explosions and this is a completely new process because the intensity is so high at the focal point of the material turns into a plasma and displacement disappears instantly from the desired location this takes

place in such a short amount of time so that he does not have time to diffuse into the surrounding areas the second about that follows on from the first but this method can be used with any material transparent or not no matter how hard or what its composition. so what about diamonds one of the hardest natural materials known to man that doesn't ring beauty an exceptional solidness is what makes them prized by jewelers but if these properties that made them hard to keep secure all. the crystal production corporation has been producing fine diamonds from the rough stones for fifty years once the jas have been put into any of the dozens of sizes to choose from each is polished to a sparkling shine the company uses of them to a second laser to a unique id onto each stone to prevent it from being counterfeited or return it to the owner of stolen but this form of mom. has its limitations because.
10:35 pm
so the company. institutes for a more permanent solution. traditional strength in a fundamental science. device. laser is capable of creating a unique mark deep within the diamond. the edging is so fine that it can't be seen with the naked eye. tensely to avoid damaging the surface so the laser beam penetrates the exterior unfocused but is then intensified hundreds of thousands of times inside the diamond this provides the concentration of energy required to turn the diamond into graphite although still a form of carbon block providing the contrast to quiet for the id and the only way of removing it would be to split the diamond into smaller stones which would trust the overall volume but the op locations of. far beyond jewelry.
10:36 pm
we have researched corrective eye surgery with this laser in cooperation with a central clinical hospital we're also running a series of projects to examine high energy physics with this laser and others in our labs here. pinpoint precision. makes them ideal for grafting prosthetics directly to bone. kitchen appliances. chips makes them indispensable in the computer industry whatever they're used for. the opening of. the only cause for celebration because christmas came early for some of the most talented innovators and. course we went along to the main award ceremonies held this month. focal point by

convention two thousand and thirteen got thoughts of buying in moscow's belmont university on the fifth of december the all singing all dancing and you'll event recognizes bush's most talented young scientists and at the end of the day the joy of experts picked the best projects in green and biotechnologies materials i.t. and engineering but despite the exterior design he can project has very commercial goals so it is that. there are no specialized events for young engineers or inventors in our country at the moment. we don't want people involved in high tech development just three million dollars for a fifty percent stake in the company. want them to make billions just like tony stark and. after such rousing words i was eager to meet the future find men and women of the barman university in the exhibition area. the stones not only gave finalists the opportunity to show off the fruits of their labors but also
10:38 pm
network and meet potential investors the highlights included the university's formula students car and printable solar panels that can be attached to pretty much anything meanwhile lurking in the depths the uni's entry for the student robel so competition boasts a three d. camera and is floating its way up the leaderboard and of course no technology show would be complete without augmenting reality play display here brings two d. images from books to kids a much to life and then lets users interact with the b three d. to reveal the information embedded inside. elsewhere in moscow that in a start two thousand and thirteen final was held at the center of modern design innovations later that evening over three hundred students submitted their projects for consideration so one of the top three prizes and those who made it to the finals had to present their ideas lie and was subjected to a grilling from the jury those who didn't. quites make it to the final it was still on hand to show off the entries which included a unique. facial tracking technology which only requires
10:39 pm
a standard low resolution webcam to track movement making the technology less of a strain on the pocket back in the main hole the jury had come to a decision the winners of this year's in a star included a radical rethink of moscow a super green roofing material under device that make sure you never get stung on your electricity bill is one thing receive an award for your innovation but once you spend your prize money you should go to tech crunch to try and find an investor or not. change. tech crunch moscow two thousand and thirteen was held at the digital october center guests of the event by the tech news websites of the same name range from startups to industry leaders as always tech crunch is stossel ali was jump shots with people as vying for attention and hoping to get a spot on the hallowed distraught stage participants have three minutes to present their idea of charts investors and move on to the next round however one name that

crops up in a presentation about the messaging up stood out from the rest. team will be a computer is the founder of the film production company and if that doesn't ring any bells he's also the director of the hollywood film wanted and many of the star studded flicks with the path from concept to big screen is no walk in the park and pre-visualization plays an important role in getting the movie off the ground action parts modern pitches require more than the traditional to teach charcoal sketches three d. animation is give a frame by frame idea of how the finished product should look pre-visualization is also help directors tweak camera angles stage direction and lighting and in an industry where time costs lots of money they help everyone know who's doing what where and when on set despite saving money even the previews are very costly and time consuming affair. when i read all sorts of images and pictures appear in my head and i thought it would be great if you could write
10:41 pm
a text and then have a computer to automatically turn it into an animated cartoon. it would understand and use the same language used by all still makers when they're telling a story just from images on a screen. so the guys at the studio got cracking to make the most fun to see a reality the company develops a universal text animation scripts this compatible with pre-prepared to d. and three d. characters and animals you simply put in your text complete with stage directions and the application source of the dialogue movement gestures and camera angles it was easy to see how it was coming useful in the film industry so while director such as he was busy with his next screenplay i wanted to find out how such a specific piece of software made its way to the mass market. where we took the
10:42 pm
professional version which supports lots of features and gradually began automating the whole cutting them out altogether introducing defaults at such a sort of this product could be used by a wider audience in the future. what we even had a trial where you made a t.v. series for a cable channel the three d. backgrounds and characters that were left and created an online version of the program which could be accessed through a browser. so anyone could visit and see the interface it has a stage these two robotic characters and a text input box. would have what it took. the text is then uploaded to a server to be animated the whole process only takes around fifteen second but leads to some rather peculiar videos online in twenty eight and it's an awfully people in their thirty's and forty's complaining and they should because their lives are almost over twenty sucks because it's the end of fun or at least society
10:43 pm
thinking it's ok to have fun when you turn twenty eight you and your fun friends start partying and start having addictions that's what they call it you can get hammered on monday night without raising some eyebrows although may seem like a lot of nonsense to get a lot of users online a chance to express themselves and it caught on surprisingly quickly. probable. having created these robots and the spy the fact that hughes had created videos which had been viewed over one hundred thousand times. early on but only five six well less than ten percent of our audience could create their own screenplay. so we decided to go one step further and simplify our application even more when return to the world of s.m.s. takes communication. in a world where people show how they're feeling with smiley's social network or
10:44 pm
contacts here which also happens to be russia's second most visited sites was the perfect place to test out the technology the simplified film pre-visualization software only requires text and smileys for the current system interact messenger's ease of use and logical progression from current communication trends mentality to must over seven hundred thousand users in the first three weeks alone was the evolution of this once nice software doesn't end here. we plan to launch a mobile application sometime in the summer of twenty fourteen. and probably be released at the same time as a film it's time to take advantage of. the characters and images in a. couple although we currently don't know what film it will probably be a big budget animation or adventure franchise but it will change the country. that's into the first half touch after the break.
10:45 pm
dear bank account how does that look today a bit more depleted than usual could be that the masters of the universe online the n.s.a. change your bank account balance that's what i've been up to. all those jokesters of the n.s.a. just playing around with the financial system for a fall out of sight as a game i thought the reason they were involved in all that invasive technology station was to keep us safe. these are called spin count salaheddin braving the elements in order to stand up to us oil giants chevron. this

comes after a mass hunger strike that returned the world's attention to the place that some have dubbed the gulag of our times. is an undeclared global battlefield in which young and just one of the front lines .
10:47 pm
welcome back let's take a quick look at this month's tech news. sales of the year kicked off on the fourth of december as gorky park in what's proved to be a day of firsts is the company's first foray into hunter held markets it also happens to be the first russian designed smartphone and the world's first l.c.d. and screen mobile. display promises to prolong battery life and display information even when the phone is not out of battery and under the device also has wide implications for russian innovation. and we show that we can do it because three years ago a few people who believe that russia start up can bring to the commercial product
10:48 pm
and get this type of success and interest we have. we can create innovative products we can do something consumer electronics and we can be competitive russian environmental monitoring service that unveiled the latest addition to its fleet of flying locks on the sixth of december the heavily modified yacht forty two d. boasts over seventy instruments for monitoring pollution and radiation levels as was particles can even in rainfall in dry areas of silver iodide disperses. a million martian meeting was held at the cosmonaut explain more you museum in moscow on the third of december cost of the mars one project the project hopes to establish a permanent human colony on mars by two thousand and twenty three and so far as received over two hundred thousand applications for a one way ticket to the red planet. when you. about this project the first time. but then when you showed a. very realistic plan all the people that are already involved. and the

companies that slowly starts getting. the russians humanoid space robot softball one was unveiled at the star city cosmonaut training center the end of last month the robots is set to join the crew on the international space station early next year controlled remotely from the ground by a pair of muchy gloves the robots human like hands will carry as maintenance work on the exterior of the station. the line between technology and biology is becoming increasingly blurred so let's focus on moscow state universities latest developments in wearable tech. brains overbroad. wearable technology has been billed as the next big thing i'm not talking about smart watches or fancy glasses one of the wearables is catching on quickly exoskeletons braving the cold outside the moscow state university andre and pavol here are busy putting their eggs so athletes through its paces the xo athlete is
10:50 pm
russia's first exoskeleton meaning it requires no external power source despite this high tech can help to operate to carry loads of one hundred kilograms. keen to get out of the cold i had inside the institute of mechanics where i found the technology has rather unusual routes the institute ventured into robotics way back in the seventy's and. bikes made for quite a spectacle they used to gyroscopic stabilization system which kept them up right even when they were standing on the spot having impressed audiences around the world the researchers shifted their attention from wheels to walking machines having already created one of russia's first anthropomorphic by people robots love was on a roll so why stop at just two legs. meet the robot she was built at a time when computers filled entire rooms but despite her ripe old age of forty the
10:51 pm
old girl can still strong stuff with the best of them she's the results of the in. to choose work on mimicking nature in an attempt to find alternative transport means each leg has three axes of movements provided by a total of eighteen perfectly coordinated electric motors she was refined over the years to improve her awareness of the surrounding environment and before her retirement she could climb and adjust to gait according to incline and the institute of mechanics had big plans to muster two point zero but it. was. there was talk of using marcia as a mars rover or the thing is though the moon rover before her run on wheels now martha but if it came across an area on the surface of mars that was either uneven or covered in rocks it's unlikely that a wheel based machine would have coped with it. and this is where legs
10:52 pm
would come in. which will. in the one nine hundred seventy s. during the cold war humanity had set his eyes on conquering other worlds and russia was looking towards the red planet the institute of mechanics propose sending a beefed up version of masha to mars the giants yellow mascotte translated literally as mars walker would help clear the path for human settlement just like musher the muscle hold would have been able to adjust its gait depending on the surface and obstacles in its path however unlike mattia the mass accords featured a scoop or core the front and open bed at the back for building clearing rubble and collecting samples there was even talk of creating a version that offered the speed of wheels but the off road capabilities of legs but all that remains is a solitary like. it has to be said that as well as carrying out experimental work into the two legged and six legged walking robots we also conduct a theoretical research we developed algorithms that allow the robots to walk and
10:53 pm
our experience with watching robots came in very handy when we were developing the eggs or skeleton. all these experiences meant that the exo athletes made it from suring ball to prototype in just two days it was developed jointly with the emergency situations ministry and received funding from the ministry of education in science weighing in at just twelve kilos is can help the operator carry loads of it to one hundred kilograms while its lack of budget and electronics means that it requires little if any maintenance in the field naturally these advantages caught the attention of the russian defense ministry to see both ready to go the eagle eyed a monkey may remember the xo athlete from a news piece we did back in august where it was demonstrated that the russian defense ministry innovation day the russian armed forces saw his potential for assisting troops loading heavy i mean mission crates and supplies as well as carrying heavy duty military combat shield such as this one but it wouldn't be that
10:54 pm
easy to fight in on the ice. it was shelved. the uni's also working on hydraulic and electric versions this battery powered hydraulic suit weighs twice as much as the passive one and has an operation time of around two hours but this was a tradeoff the team were willing to make for the added power and mobility it gives the user senses on either side of the neat pickup the operator's intention and swing the leg into action but that's enough talk i have to try one on for size it was a strange feeling been struck so securely to the exoskeleton and it felt like learning to walk again as i started slowly forward but it didn't take long to get the hang of it pressure pads at the bottom of the exoskeleton takes when the foot is touching the floor unlock the leg at the knee ready for the next step. toward there is a motion detection system installed industry room which uses video cameras to help us see how a person moves in the exoskeleton
10:55 pm
a workout that's nomics. because this is one of the methods are used to deal with the irregularities of the human body. we can gather statistics to see how people walk then use this information to customise the exoskeleton. including the speed and movement of the joints the rigidity and shock absorbing properties of the excess skeleton a much more we get to work obviously pavel wasn't quite as happy with my performance as i was i thought i could do with something extra assistance the could just weren't entirely out of place though with waning interest from the military the medical ali is the one they could be looking to explore the potential of the exoskeleton helping people walk again or recover from injury not to mention the psychological benefits that come with it is immense the passive exoskeletons lack of complex electronics means that it would be perfect for people living in remote areas it can also be used to help take some of the load off those who carry heavy
10:56 pm
objects as part of their daily work as i work with. the war in creating the exoskeleton we're hoping to be one of the first players in a market that's only just forming. so we'll have a chance to find our own each and made the expectations that people have told us about when you could produce. and provide them with the exoskeleton they really need. gaining popularity through hollywood blockbusters developments such as the one from moscow state university mean it's exoskeletons are no longer confined to the realms of fantasy and now potential in the real world with doctors and engineers looking for ways either to restore people's mobility and strength or upgrade its wearable robots might just be the way forward they use this range from helping people get back on their feet and building strength so helping the world's elderly stay for longer and making lights work of heavy lifting so it looks like exoskeletons day. that's all from
