Arecibo Message

The search for extraterrestrial life began long time ago but it may be due to some conspiracy that we don't know, the existence of this life has not been proved yet. Nevertheless, human keep sending message in the form of radio waves to see whether an outer space life can detect and decode it or not.

The above picture isn't just a picture, but rather a message that was broadcasted from Arecibo radio telescope towards M13, a globular star cluster located 25 000 light years away. Scientists predict that Earth has to wait for 50 000 years for the reply.

The message was created by Dr Frank Drake, the creator of Drake Equation with the help of few other people including Carl Sagan, an American astronomer. The message consists of seven parts which generally explain about life on Earth.

The parts are:

  1. The numbers 1 through 10. (white)
  2. Atomic number of Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen and Phosphorus, the elements that make up Deoxyrebonucleic Acid. (purple)
  3. The formula for sugars and bases in nucleotides of DNA. (green)
  4. Number of nucleotides (green) and the basic double helix structure of DNA. (blue)
  5. Graphic figure of human, dimension of the average man and human population on Earth in 1974. (red)
  6. Graphic of the solar system. (yellow)
  7. Graphic of Arecibo radio telescope and the dimension of the transmitting antenna dish. (bottom purple)
The message was encoded in binary in which it must be arranged in 73 rows and 23 columns for the string to make any sense. The binary string is as follows.

The message was sent with the aim of demonstrating the ability of arecibo radio telescope, not with the aim to find intelligent extraterrestrial life. Though, we'll never know what will happen in the next 50 000 years, could we?

Gymbot - Cool Personal Fitness Trainer

First, some facts from WHO:

  • Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980.
  • In 2008, 1.5 billion adults, 20 and older, were overweight. Of these over 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese.
  • 65% of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
  • Nearly 43 million children under the age of five were overweight in 2010.
  • Obesity is preventable
Overweight and obesity will be the world's no 1 problem if it is not treated and prevented. Due to this problem, Gymbot, a concept robot presented at the ICSR 2011 design award is used in order to help humans especially in obese people to have a healthy lifestyle. 


Max Battaglia, the designer of Gymbot, hope that this robot will coach the owner in term of exercise, eating habit and healthy lifestyle. It can use the sensor to analyze not only the owner's activity, but also his/her body composition so that it can give advice on how to get healthier. 


This concept robot is meant to motivate and encourage overweight people to live healthily and well, there's nothing scarier than a big, bulky scary humanoid telling you what to do or else he'll beat the crap out of you. According to the designer, this robot may exist in 2020 where there are great improvement in technology that make the robotics become more affordable. 




Hopefully with this robot around, problems associated with obese can be eliminated and people can spend more time on other problems.

3D Printing: Human Organs and Chocolate

A long time ago i posted something about 3D Printer. But the world does not stop at just that. Now, with time, 3D printing is advancing towards medical and food industry. 

The success story of printing body parts:

Organovo, a company pioneering in bioprinting technology has successfully created the first commercial organ printer in the world. The printer, called NovoGen MMX Bioprinter, is now capable of producing arteries which is commonly used by surgeons to do bypass surgery. By using the patient's own cell, the threat of rejection by organ transplant is greatly reduced. The company hopes that the machine will be able to print more complex organ such as heart and liver in the next 10 years. With capabilities to save thousands of lives that need organ transplants, NovoGen can be considered as the latest breakthrough in the world of medicine. 
Roadmap to bioprinting
Watch the video of the printer. 



Chocolate Printing:

Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) is now researching the 3D printer so that it can print custom design chocolate. This printer will allow user to design his/her own chocolate and bring it to reality. The challenge in creating this printer is to melt and temper the chocolate at the right temperature but it is one challenge that can be overcome. With the 3D printing technology becoming more and more commercially available, this research can help in revolutionizing the business of manufacturing process worldwide.
