Science!: Computer Brains, Bird-Breathers and Human Catastrophe

Inside: Wet computers will mimic our brains, but they'll be used for chemical formation, not games. Too bad our brains didn't pay attention in class.

That Wet computer sounds interesting.

But sadly if they are successful down the road a robot invasion will seem imminent. What with computers sort of like human brains, and the ability not to break when shaken a little
( I think?)

Stingrays can troubleshoot? Wow, maybe thats why theat Stingray got Steve Irwin it said "Holy crud its that australian dude in khakis, get him the f away from me! *sting* whoops!

Interesting article, nicely done Lauren.

The wet computer sounds certainly fun...although could mean we are one step close to Skynet! =O

TOO SOON! :D

This article was very heady. I like it. I'm anxious to see how wet computers evolve through the next decades.

In other words, the computer will be used to mimic natural body processes and apply that technology towards building a more advanced, human-like Cylon robot. At least, that's what I'm hoping it will do.

Lauren! What have I told you about wishing for robot apocalypses?

I don't think so Lauren, but OK.

Did you get that photo of the laptop under the waterfall off google images or something or did you take the photo yourself?

Brilliant article as always Lauren :) I've got a wet computer over here right now.... oh wait no, I just spilled my tea on the keyboard.

The concept of the wet computer does sound interesting and has potentially many benefits, especially in the medical field. More intelligent prosthetics would be as close to a miracle as someone with a missing limb could get, and that alone is worth the research.

Implementing this tech towards a self-aware robot (let's just call it an android) seems a bit much so soon. Sure, it would be great, but that seems like a lofty goal already. Robotics is making great progress, but androids don't quite seem exactly what the world needs right now. The idea is exciting, but belongs more in the "dream" category.

I'd love to see the actual progress they can make if the wet computer can be brought to a final stage. The interest from third party companies will take that tech to new levels not imagined by the original developers, and that's when we'll see the real magic start to happen. Let's just cross our fingers that this tech won't be included into cell phone tech or sex toys. Hate to go blue on this reply, but with Roxxxy just coming out to the market, you know eventually this tech could be used to create an even more realistic sex doll.

Don't know what to say about Haiti. The news here on Brazil are filled with the poor country's dispair.

New kind of technology? Sounds promising.

Stingrays will join the octopus army to develop birds lungs and take on the surface world.
