Software for running the Chemputer in association with the supporting publication in Science
A robot powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) is helping chemists to discover new molecules and chemical reactions...

Mixing chemicals together causes reactions and produces new molecules. But with so many different chemicals in existence, the possible combinations are endless, and there are millions of chemical reactions yet to be tried.

Doing these tests, though, is very time consuming, laborious and has a low success rate; it’s also very susceptible to human failings, like bias and fatigue. To surmount this, University of Glasgow chemist Lee Cronin and his team have invented a robot to test chemical combinations for them.

Chemputer enables simple sharing of synthesis recipes The Engineer
The system, named by research leader Lee Cronin, Regius professor of chemistry at the University of Glasgow, uses downloadable blueprints to easily and reliably synthesise drug molecules. Described in Science, this represents “a key step in the digitisation of chemistry, and will allow the universal assembly of complex molecules on demand,” Cronin claimed. Cronin has been working on the chemputer concept and the software system which runs the chemical recipes and directs the synthesis process, known as a chempiler, for some years. The Science paper represents a major step in perfecting the idea, he said. A key part of the project was developing a new universal and interoperable standards for writing and sharing chemical recipes, which involved creating a general abstraction for chemistry.

DREMELFUGE - How To Build Your Own DIY Centrifuge | Popular Science
for any garage-ista ready to tackle molecular biology, the centrifuge is an essential laboratory tool. Its super-rapid spin supplies the right G-forces to neatly separate biological materials—including cells, proteins, and DNA—from a liquid. University-grade centrifuges sell for about $2,000, but synthetic biology enthusiast and inventor Cathal Garvey figured out how to build one with a Dremel tool and a 3-D–printed wheel. The combination can spin samples up to 33,000 rpm, creating forces 50,000 times stronger than Earth's gravitational pull.

Paper Toy Can Save Lives (paper centrifuge) @ Hackaday
Although there is a lot of discussion about health care problems in big countries like the United States, we often don’t realize that this is a “first world” problem. In many places, obtaining health care of any kind can be a major problem. In places where water and electricity are scarce, a lot of modern medical technology is virtually unobtainable. A team from Standford recently developed a cheap, easily made centrifuge using little more than paper, scrap material like wood or PVC pipe, and string.

Three-Conductor Pivot for E-Textiles is Better Than Wires | Hackaday
Pivots for e-textiles can seem like a trivial problem. After all, wires and fabrics bend and flex just fine. However, things that are worn on a body can have trickier needs. Snap connectors are the usual way to get both an electrical connection and a pivot point, but they provide only a single conductor. When [KOBAKANT] had a need for a pivoting connection with three electrical conductors, they came up with a design that did exactly that by using a flexible circuit board integrated to a single button snap.

Tryst Energy by TWTG
In the world of tomorrow everything is connected through the Internet of Things. We're building this world today. And today is finally the day you don’t need batteries anymore. Imagine charging your sensors with only 200 lux Light Energy in 4 hours (which is nothing) and connect them for 24 hours (which is amazing). This is less than the light you'll find beneath your desk.

Tryst Energy is about removing the elephant in the room nobody is talking about, in other words: getting rid of the battery that needs to be charged / replaced / maintained. Hello always-online and zero-maintenance. Energy harvesting, but with the tools that really work - today.

Bill Gates, Carbon Capture Storage, and trying to save the world
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a sustainability technology which has been deployed with some successes, but only on a small scale. However, some people are working on a CCS plan larger than anyone has thought possible. The Gates-funded project is hoping to create industrial-style CCS technology capable of directly removing carbon dioxide from the air. Industrial is the correct word; the vision is to scale-up existing technology, which captures about one tonne of CO2 per day, to perform at a much higher rate.

Blue Planet | Economically Sustainable Carbon Capture
Blue Planet’s technology uses CO2 as a raw material for making carbonate rocks. The carbonate rocks produced are used in place of natural limestone rock mined from quarries, which is the principal component of concrete. The carbonated solutions formed from the captured CO2 are used to form a carbonate mineral coating over a nucleus or substrate. The carbonate minerals form a synthetic limestone coating. This permanently sequesters the captured CO2 as CO3= in the carbonate minerals comprising the limestone coating

State Of The Art Big Mouth Alexa Bass | Hackaday
Hackers seem intent on making sure the world doesn’t forget that, for a brief shining moment, everyone thought Big Mouth Billy Bass was a pretty neat idea. Every so often we see a project that takes this classic piece of home decor and manages to shoehorn in some new features or capabilities, and with the rise of voice controlled home automation products from the likes of Amazon and Google, they’ve found a new ingredient du jour when preparing stuffed bass.

[Ben Eagan] has recently completed his entry into the Pantheon of animatronic fish projects, and while we’ll stop short of saying the world needed another Alexa-enabled fish on the wall, we’ve got to admit that he’s done a slick job of it. Rather than trying to convince Billy’s original electronics to play nice with others, he decided to just rip it all out and start from scratch.

Taxonomer: an interactive metagenomics analysis portal for universal pathogen detection and host mRNA expression profiling. @ PubMed - NCBI.

High-throughput sequencing enables unbiased profiling of microbial communities, universal pathogen detection, and host response to infectious diseases. However, computation times and algorithmic inaccuracies have hindered adoption.

We present Taxonomer, an ultrafast, web-tool for comprehensive metagenomics data analysis and interactive results visualization. Taxonomer is unique in providing integrated nucleotide and protein-based classification and simultaneous host messenger RNA (mRNA) transcript profiling. Using real-world case-studies, we show that Taxonomer detects previously unrecognized infections and reveals antiviral host mRNA expression profiles.

Sudo Find Me a Parking Space; Machine Learning Ends Circling the Block | Hackaday
If you live in a bustling city and have anyone over who drives, it can be difficult for them to find parking. Maybe you have an assigned space, but they’re resigned to circling the block with an eagle eye. With those friends in mind, [Adam Geitgey] wrote a Python script that takes the video feed from a web cam and analyzes it frame by frame to figure out when a street parking space opens up. When the glorious moment arrives, he gets a text message via Twilio with a picture of the void.

It sounds complicated, but much of the work has already been done. Cars are a popular target for machine learning, so large data sets with cars already exist. [Adam] didn’t have to train a neural network, either–he found a pre-trained Mask R-CNN model with data for 80 common objects like people, animals, and cars.
