6:30 pm
the laws and regulations to tax corporate bankers. here is just to flood threat is a society. that. 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 like. this take no spark in nano technology sense it was officially opened in the town of troy just south of moscow the sensor aims to become
6:31 pm
a launch pad for high tech startups by bringing together all the facilities and know how to develop and produce innovative goods all under one roof while the town's strong research base made it the natural choice of location the park 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 thank you 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 best of 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
6:32 pm
already frequently used for increasing and cutting too often glass but the full spectrum about the cations for this type of laser is. only just being realized however it's hard to imagine exactly how short of bento second days. into a second this one four trillion or one millionth of a billionth of a second there are way more then two seconds in a second then yes the universe has existed so to put it into context it's takes around three hundred million femtosecond photos of blink. if you are 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. but 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
6:33 pm
it evaporation or micro explosions this is a completely new process because the intensity is so high at the focal point of the material turns into a plasma under spasm it 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 advise that follows on from the first is 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 beauty an exceptional solidness is what makes him prized by jewellers but if these properties that made them hard to keep secure. the crystal production corporation has been producing fine diamonds from the rough stones for fifty years once the jas have been cut to any of the dozens of sizes to choose from each facet is polished to a sparkling shine the company uses a second laser to etch
6:34 pm
a unique id onto each stone to prevent it from being counterfeited or return it to the owner if stolen but this form of mom. has its limitations because. so the company. institutes for a more permanent solution. traditional strength in a fundamental science. device. of creating a unique mob deep within the diamond. is so fine that it's can't be seen with the naked eye. to avoid damaging the surface so the laser beam. unfocused but is then intensified hundreds of thousands of times inside the diamond this provides the concentration of energy
6:35 pm
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 up locations of. far beyond jewelry. we have researched corrective eye surgery with this laser in cooperation with the central clinical hospital. running a series of projects to examine high energy physics. and others in our labs here. pinpoint precision of. makes them ideal for grafting prosthetics directly to. kitchen appliances. chips makes them indispensable in the computer industry.
6:36 pm
because christmas came early for some of the. under. 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 russia's most talented young scientists and at the end of the day the joy of experts pick 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
6:37 pm
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 network and meet potential investors the highlights included universities 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 augments of reality play display here brings two d. images from books to kids a much to life and then lets users interact with the big 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 and innovations later that evening over three hundred students submitted their projects
6:38 pm
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. squads make it to the final it was still on hand to show off their entries which included a unique. facial tracking technology which only requires 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
6:39 pm
name range from startups to industry leaders as always tech crunch is stossel ali was just packed with people demo their wares vying for attention and hoping to get a spot on the hollow disrupt stage participants have three minutes to present their idea a chart to investors and move on to the next round however one name that cropped 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 of 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
6:40 pm
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 but if you could write a text and then have a computer 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 developed 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
6:41 pm
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 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. was that you 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 the. the
6:42 pm
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 twenty eighth 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 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 a 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 are. still there for 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 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
6:43 pm
even more and return 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 bush's second most visited site was the perfect place to test out the technology the simplified film pre-visualization software only requires text and smileys for the characters to interact much messenger's ease of use and logical progression from current communication trends mentality to must over seventeen 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 to take advantage of. the characters and images in a. couple of things become all that we currently don't know what film it will
6:44 pm
probably be a big budget animation or adventure franchise country. thus into the first half touch after the break. the. lead. time of the new alert animation scripts scare me a little bit in the unique there is breaking news tonight and we are continuing to follow the breaking news the everything in. the alexander family cry tears of the wind and even great things other than. the ever read or hear the core of what found online is a story made sort of movies playing out in real life. i
6:45 pm
think. i would like to know that you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open process is critical to our democracy albus. role. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and across the cynical we've been hijacked why a handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers one still just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world to go beyond identifying the problem to try to fix rational debate and real discussion critical issues facing up to five different job ready to join the movement then walk a bit but. i've
6:46 pm
got a quote for you. it's pretty tough to. say where it's not storing. let's get this guy like you but smear that guy stead of working for the people most issues the mainstream media are working for each other bridegrooms vision of what. they did rather well. i know c.n.n. the m s n b c fox news have taken some luck slightly but the fact is i admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate. that was funny but it's close and for the truth and might take. off
6:47 pm
a cliff it's because one call attention and the mainstream media works side by side . the joke is actually on here. and our teen years we have a different approach. because the news of the world just is not this funny i'm not laughing dammit i'm not how. you guys stick to the jokes will handle them. welcome back let's take a quick look at this month's tech news. sales of the year to
6:48 pm
film 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 hunt held mark isn't it also happens to be the first design smartphone and the world's first l.c.d. and screen mobile. display promises to prolong your life and display information even when the phone's not in use out of battery and until device also has wide implications for rushing innovation. we show that we can do it because three years ago a few people who believe the prussians start up can bring to the commercial product and get this type of success and interest we have around the clock 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
6:49 pm
yacht forty two d. boasts over seventy instruments for monitoring pollution and radiation levels as was particles can even in juice rainfall in dry areas arsenal of silver iodide disperses. a million martian meeting was held at the cosmonaut six memorial 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. about this project the first time. but then when you showed a. very real it. all the people that are already involved. and slowly starts getting on. the russians humanoid robots. training the end of last month the robots he said to join the crew on the international space station early next
6:50 pm
year controlled remotely from the ground by a pair of muchy gloves the robots human like hands will work on the exterior of the station. the line between technology and biology is becoming increasingly blurred so let's focus on moscow state university's latest developments in wearable tech. brains overbroad. wearable technology has been billed as the next big thing i'm not talking about smart glasses one of the way quickly. braving the cold outside the moscow state university andre and pavel here are busy putting the exo athletes through its paces. first exoskeleton meaning it requires no external. help to carry loads one hundred kilograms. keen to get out of the cold i had inside
6:51 pm
the institute of mechanics where i found rather unusual routes. ventured into robotics way back in the seventy's. 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. robot she was built at a time when computers filled entire. but despite a ripe old age of forty the old girl can still still says 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 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
6:52 pm
retirement she could climb stairs and adjust to gait according to incline and the institute of mechanics had big plans to muster two point zero but. if there was talk of using. 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 a 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 mars the giants yellow masa court translated
6:53 pm
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 musher the muscle horse featured a scoop or claw at 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 a 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 suring ball to prototype in just to get it was developed jointly with the emergency
6:54 pm
situations ministry and received funding from the ministry of education in science weighing in at just twelve kilos it can help the operator carry loads of it to one hundred kilograms while it's lack of bochy 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 easy to fight in on the ice. 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
6:55 pm
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 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 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
6:56 pm
and movement of the joints the rigidity and shock absorbing properties of the excess skeleton a much more we get more good we're obviously possible wasn't quite as happy with my performance as i was i thought i could do with something extra assistance. 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 and 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 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
6:57 pm
about when you come to reduce. and provide them with the exoskeleton they really need. looking like gaining popularity through hollywood blockbusters radical 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 dots as an engine is 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 hoping the world's elderly stay longer and making lights work of heavy lifting so it looks like exoskeletons day. that's all from me on the technology updates team this year to seeing you and finding out what two thousand and fourteen has in store for us what's over your plan to bring in the new year enjoy the ride.
6:58 pm
in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want. there's
6:59 pm
a medium leave us so we leave that maybe. by the sea motions surely play your party there's a ball in their shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all on politicking only on our t.v. . i'm. a side. i'm big corporation kind of can. do i'm the banker i think it's all been all about money and i'm a family fixer a politician right a lot. coming up. here just to let. today's by. that.
7:00 pm
a suspect. we're going to do is a joke and you know the price is the only industry specifically mention in the constitution. that's because a free and open press is critical to our democracy shrek all first. of all i'm. going to go on i'm sorry and on this show we reveal the picture of what's actually going clam up we go beyond identifying the problem you're trying to fix rational debate a real discussion critical issues facing america by a member ready to join the movement then welcome to the big picture.
