Miracles are still happening.

A man in South Africa was cured from his deafness by a 3D printer. Can you imagine? He had been in a car accident and it damaged the small bones in his right ear. While seeking help, he met Professor Mashudu Tshifularo of the University of Pretoria’s Steve Biko Academic Hospital. Professor Tshifularo had created a technique, using 3D printing, to replace the damaged bones. The man had the procedure done and it took the professor and his team only an hour and a half to complete the surgery. And it was a resounding success.

The procedure uses titanium to build the bones through the 3D printer. Titanium had been used for years because it is biocompatible with human tissue. And it allows our natural bones, to which the titanium is attached, to continue to work as they are intended.

The procedure works for people with conductive hearing loss. (Hearing loss caused by obstruction, damage or degeneration of the components making up the outer or middle ear) It doesn’t work so well yet for people suffering sensorineural hearing loss, which happens through nerve signals being prevented from getting to the brain. Or for those who suffer a mix of both. But the experts are working on that.

Anyone suffering conductive hearing loss is eligible for this procedure. Even babies. This is fabulous news for us. This means we are well on our way to curing hearing loss for everyone suffering deafness. Eventually no matter what the cause.

Professor Tshifularo wants to make this procedure affordable for everyone. But to do that, he needs funds made available so these 3D printers can create their work. You can give a donation, if you’d like to, to the university

Can you imagine a world where no one is deaf? I can, now that we have these miracles at our fingertips. What a wonderful world that will be, huh?

RESCUE

Hello. We’re ordinary folk here at Robot Aficionado, and so we take a common sense approach to looking at the exciting technology of Artificial Intelligence. Robots. How exciting is it that technology today has caught up with all that science fiction we’ve been reading for so long?


Robots have been a staple in our society for a long time now. Since the third century BC, and maybe earlier, actually. One of the earliest descriptions was found in the Lie Zi text, on a much earlier encounter between King Mu of Zhou (1023–957 BC) and a mechanical engineer known as Yan Shi. He was called an 'artificer'. He allegedly presented the king with a mechanical,  life-size, human-shaped figure which he made.

Descriptions of more than 100 machines were found in writings by Ctesibius, Philo of Byzantium, Heron of Alexandria, and others in the first century AD. Heron of Alexandria wrote a book titled ‘Pneumatica and Automata’, in which he described a fire engine, a wind organ, a coin-operated machine, and a steam-powered engine. In 420 B.C.E, Archytas of Tarentum wrote about a wooden, steam propelled bird, which was able to fly. He called it the ‘Flying pigeon’. The list could go on, from a programmable band in 1206, to an automated peacock, to a mechanical knight in 1495, to the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci. There was even a mechanical duck, invented by Jacques de Vaucanson in 1738, that could eat, flap its wings and excrete. Imagine that. And Nikola Tesla put forth the first radio-controlled vessel in 1898. We have a long history of robotics.

The word robot comes from the Slavic word robota, which means labor. The word robotics, then, was derived from the word robot. The word robotics was first introduced in a play written by the Czech writer Karel Capek, called RUR, which is Rossum’s Universal Robots. It was published in 1920. The play is about a factory that made human looking robots. But according to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word robotics was first used in print by Isaac Asimov in his science fiction short story ‘Liar!’, which was published in 1941, May issue of Astounding Science Fiction. In 1942, he created the three laws of robotics, which are still in use today. They are:
1. Robots must never harm human beings.
2. Robots must follow instructions from humans without violating rule 1.
3. Robots must protect themselves without violating the other rules.
In 1948, Norbert Wiener formulated the principles of cybernetics, the basis of practical robotics.

Commercial and industrial robots are all over the place today. They can perform jobs more cheaply, more accurately and more reliably, than humans. They’re used in jobs which are too dirty, dangerous, or dull for humans. Robots are used in manufacturing, assembly, packing and packaging, mining, transport, earth and space exploration, surgery, weaponry, laboratory research, safety, and the mass production of consumer and industrial goods. Just to name a few.


As we go along, we'll have more articles for you to browse through for more information on the progress of the robot industry.  We'll take a look at robots for kids. Sex robots, for sure. Those for sale, in space, and in the military. You name it. We'll even discuss sometime about whether or not those buggers are taking over. Who knows?


Here is our feature article for this week:
