Play-i's Bo and Yana robots teach kids programming concepts through stories
There are efforts to promote coding to kids but they're typically aimed at an older demographic. Play-i hopes to foster that interest at an earlier age with its upcoming programmable robots.
Both the three-wheeled Bo and its stationary cousin Yana teach coding concepts through the context of stories. Owners can tell Bo to give a flower to a friend, for example, or get Yana to make helicopter sounds when it's shaken. Play-i's Bluetooth-based remote control app (currently iOS-only) simplifies arm, eye, gesture and wheel commands, reducing them to icon-based sequences.
The company is running a crowdfunding campaign through which, interested parents can pledge $49 for Yana, and $149 for Bo; prices should climb to a respective $69 and $199 when the robots reach the market.
Virgin Galactic to accept Bitcoin for space flights
The virtual currency Bitcoin can be used to purchase pizza and to make apartment rentals – and now it can be used to buy tickets to space. Virgin Galactic, the space-flight branch of Richard Branson’s empire, announced on 22nd November that it will accept payments made by Bitcoin.
“All of our future astronauts are pioneers in their own right, and this is one more way to be forward-thinking,” Branson said, in a blogpost for the company. He said a female flight attendant from Hawaii has purchased a Virgin Galactic ticket using bitcoin.
Bitcoin’s value benefitted in recent weeks from growing support from investors, including China, who believe the decentralised currency could hold long-term promise as an alternative form of payment.
Jellyfish drone stays airborne by furiously flapping 20 times a second
The flight techniques of insects have been inspiring the development of autonomous drones for years but now it looks like jellyfish could be set to inspire a more stable form of flight.
Presented at the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics conference on 24 November, the drone "achieves self-righting flight using flapping wings alone, without relying on additional aerodynamic surfaces and without feedback control", according to its creators. In contrast to the flight of an insect, which depends heavily on other factors such as wind gusts, the somewhat inelegant bobbing of the jellyfish translates to a surprisingly reliable form of movement.
The jellyfish drone can hover and fly in straight lines using its four wings, arranged like petal flowers and working in unison to maintain flight -- flapping 20 times per second.

Island Web Works provided us with a web site to suit our specification and budget. It was done professionally and the customer service was excellent. I would like to in particular thank Angela for her support and patience during the set up stages. I have no hesitation in recommending Charles and Island Web Works.
