in 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 amish. 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 believed 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 bento second day is. then to a second is one for trillions one millionth of a billionth of a second there are away more fame two seconds in a second then yes the universe has existed so to put it into context it's 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 dispersant 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 which follows on from the first but this method can be used with any material transparent or not no matter how hard or what.

composition. so what about diamonds one of the hardest natural materials known to man beauty an exceptional solidness is what makes them prized by jewellers these properties that make them hard to keep secure. the crystal production corporation has been producing fine diamonds from fifty years. of sizes to choose from each polished to a sparkling shine the company uses. a unique id on each stone to prevent it from being counterfeit. but this form of marking has its limitations because one. can be removed so the company. institutes for a more permanent solution. traditional strength in a fundamental science. device

in laser is capable of creating a unique market deep within the diamond. the edging is so fine that it can't be seen with the naked eye. with. 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 a concentration of energy required to turn the diamond into graphite although still a form of carbon block providing the contrast required 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. we have researched corrective eye surgery with this laser in cooperation with a central clinical hospital. we're also running

studded flicks 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 chuckles sketches three d. on emissions give a frame by frame idea of how the finished product should look pre-visualization. stage direction and lighting and in an industry where time costs lots of money to help everyone know who's doing what where and when on sets despite saving money even the previews are very costly and time consuming a fact. when i read all sorts of images and pictures appear in my head and i thought it would be great if you could write a text and then have a computer to automatically turn it into an animated cartoon but. it would understand and use the same language used by all filmmakers 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 developed a universal text animation script 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 crazy with his next screenplay i wanted to find out how such a specific piece of software made its way to the mass market. we took the professional version which supports lots of features and gradually began automating them or cutting them out altogether introducing defaults at such a sort of this product could be used by a wider audience in the future. we even had a trial where we made a t.v.

a lot of nonsense to get it gives a lot of users online a chance to express themselves and it caught on surprisingly quickly. there with 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 while less than ten percent of our audience could create a screenplay. so we decided to go one step further and simplify our application even more. to the world of s.m.s. and takes communication. in a world where people show how they're feeling with smiley's social network of contacts 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

said. i don't want to die i just really do not want to die young young. welcome back let's take a quick look at this month's tech news. bites. sales of the yota phone kicks 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 markets it also happens to be the first russian designed small phone and the world's first l.c.d. and screen mobile display promises to prolong life on display information even when
4:46 am
the phone is not. until the device also has wide implications for russian innovation. we show that we can do it because three years ago a few people who believe that russian startup can bring this idea to the commercial product and get this type of success and interest we have around the globe 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 its can even in juice rainfall in dry areas. a million martian meeting was held at the cosmonaut six memorial museum in moscow on the. cost of the mars one project the. 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. project the first time. all the people that are already. getting on the. end of last month the robots to join the crew on the international space station early next year. from the ground. robots humanlike. work on the exterior of the station. the line between technology and biology is becoming increasingly blurred so let's focus on state university's latest developments in wearable tech. bring.

wearable technology has been billed as the next big thing. one of the. braving the cold outside the moscow state university. through its paces. first. meaning it requires no external. carry loads of kilograms. of the cold i had inside the institute of mechanics. rather unusual routes. ventured into robotics way back in the seven. he's on the balancing unicycles in 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 likes. meets musharraf the walking robot she was built at the time when computers filled entire rooms but despite a ripe old age of forty the old girl can still strong stuff with the best of them she's the results of the institute's work on mimicking nature in an attempt to find alternative transport means each leg just three axes of movement 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 stairs and adjust her gait according to incline and the institute of mechanics had big plans for muster two point zero but. there was talk of news ing. as a mars rover or the thing is though the moon rover before her

run on wheels. 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 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 mas the giants yellow mascotte translated literally as mars walker which helped clear the path for human settlements just like masha the muscle hold would have been able to adjust its gait depending on the surface and obstacles in its path however unlike mattia the muscle holds featured a scoop or claw at the front and open bed at the back for building clearing rubble
4:51 am
and collecting samples there was even talk of creating a version that offered the speed of wheels but the off road capabilities of legs was 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 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 turing ball to prototype in just to get 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 it's like a bunch and electronics means that it requires little if any maintenance in the field naturally these advantages caught the attention of the russian defense
4:52 am
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 it's increasing supply use as well as carrying heavy duty military combat shield such as this one but it wouldn't be that easy to fight in on the ice. it was shelved. the uni's also working on hydraulic and electric versions this battery powered hydraulic suits 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 need pick up the operator's intention and swing the leg into action but that's enough talk i had to try one on for size it was a strange feeling pinstriped 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 which uses video cameras to help us see how a person moves in the exoskeleton and workout that's nomics. because this is one of the methods are used to deal with the irregularities of the human body with. we can gather statistics to see how people walk then use this information to customize 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 the word obviously pavel wasn't quite as happy with my performance as i was i thought i could do with some extra assistance. entirely out of place though with waning interest from the military the medical alley is the one
4:54 am
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 objects as part of their daily work as i work with. the war room and 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 meet the expectations that people have told us about when you can put a good use. and provide them with the exoskeleton they really need. gaining popularity through hollywood blockbusters developments such as the one from moscow state university mean the skeletons are no longer confined to the realms of

fantasy potential in the real world. as an engineer is looking for ways either to restore people's mobility and strength or great it. might just be the way. they use his range from helping people. building strength to helping the world. and making light work of heavy lifting so it looks like. a. technology this year. and finding out what two thousand and fourteen. bring in the new year enjoy the ride. why is the price of gold so high. demand global demand do you think gold is money.

the value of the only place we have to live of the water that we need to survive it's not compared to bill i mean gold we're not going to eat gold we're not going to bait with gold. we're not going to drink what clearly what amal is and is in a desperate economic situation absolutely right what we're wrong to do is say therefore any kind of economic development from the outside is going to be a benefit their only purpose is to extract as much money as possible to feed into the global financial system. with me or part of the geo political economic system that's extremely or splintered. first of all is a question where the mining should even be carried out altogether can it be done in a way which doesn't destroy people's lives resources environment and so on will you
4:57 am
know those are pretty serious questions mining is not a what a moment problem it's happening in asia in africa and south america in central america in mexico and it's even happening in canada and the united states. the beginning of the lonely politics night marks a new phase it's full island life. now enough temptation. the dog was lost for six months. more polar bears than people.

that. millions around the globe struggle with hunger each good. what if someone offers a lifetime food supply. no charge. very strong against g.m.o. and we think that's. pretty cool too. there is no. evidence to this any problem with genetic engineering when you make a deal. or is free cheese always in a mouse trap i don't believe that the. free. enterprise is profit. for these golden
