Ok, i've already bitched about our illustrious ANC government's poor record, so I'm not going to go into it again with the xenophobic violence. (if Ian ever logs into the blog, he can rant about it ^_^)

My mother got back from an extended visit to the US recently and amongst other things she brought back a stack of Science mags for my dad and I. This morning I was reading through Discovery Magazine ( and there's some really cool tech starting to emerge.

Did you know that we're using yeast and genetically engineered viruses to grow batteries and integrated circuits? I think that's pretty intense... nanotech biological factories in a test tube.

Scientists have also apparently figured out how to overcome the massive amounts of programing needed for an AI to interact successfully with a changing environment... the new way of programing AI is to get it to learn (much like human and animal babies) about it's body movement by itself. This removes the need for masses of If-Then programing and enables the machine to evolve new processes to deal with anything that it might encounter. Cool hey?

Sure these technologies are still very much in an embryonic stage, but with the pace of advancement (and the US government spending major cash to speed up the development of robotic soldiers) it's not going to be too long before we're interacting with humanoid robots on a daily basis. Are you ready for that?

And we're back! Thank you all for sticking with us over my exams ^_^ we're back to the Tuesday-Thursday schedule and should be getting a slight upgrade in the art... so keep checking in!

You guys can also vote for who you want Kiba to nail next, so get yourself to our FBpage (link on the right) and get voting.

Finally, here's a link to another comic that's written and drawn by a friend of ours (i think it's cool), so have a look! ->

See you Thursday!
