Mysterious UFO filmed in skies of Russia conspiracy theorists call it hologram

first_imgYouTube: MavixxxPopular conspiracy theory YouTube channel ‘Mavixxx’ has recently uploaded a very mysterious video that shows a partly cloaked UFO hovering in the skies of Russia. According to the YouTube channel, the footage was captured on August 18, 2019, by a local resident named Tsigarev.The UFO spotted in broad daylight can be seen moving very slowly in the skies and at times, it eerily changes its shape. As the video went viral on YouTube, conspiracy theorists who analyzed the video assured that this is a proof of hologram technology tested as a part of Project Bluebeam.These conspiracy theorists outlandishly claim that Project Bluebeam is a secret mission carried out by the elites to establish a new world order. They believe that the next stage of this secretive mission will be a false alien invasion intended to mislead the general public.A section of other conspiracy theorists argues that the UFO spotted in the Russian skies could be a cloaked alien ship or a secretive military vessel. These alien enthusiasts believe that extraterrestrial from deep space has been visiting the earth for hundreds of thousands of years, and cave paintings featuring skymen and flying objects are authentic proof of their existence.However, skeptics believe that the video uploaded by ‘Mavixxx’ is a hoax and the UFO featured in the clip is generated with the help of computer graphics. Some other people argued that the UFO in the video could be actually a balloon moving in the course of the wind. A few days back, Mavixxx had uploaded another video that showed an unidentified flying object hovering very near to a tornado. After watching the video, viewers of the YouTube channels suggested that aliens might be using tornadoes and bolts of lightning to reap energy.last_img read more

Advanced Robotic Arm Controlled by Monkeys Thoughts w Video

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have demonstrated a monkey controlling an advanced robotic arm by using its thoughts. The experiments were led by Dr. Andrew Schwartz, a professor of neurobiology and involved a high degree of complexity in the robotic arm, the level of control, and the intricacy of the manipulations. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This is not the first time that Dr. Schwartz implanted sensors in a monkey’s brain to control a robotic arm. Back in May of 2008 experiments were conducted by Dr. Schwartz, using a simpler mechanical arm, to teach a monkey to feed itself. This was a four-degrees-of-freedom arm with shoulder joints, elbow, and a simple gripper. In this demonstration researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have taught a monkey to use its thoughts to control an advanced robotic arm and perform elaborate maneuvers with it. Credit: University of Pittsburgh In the video above the monkey (right side of video) uses its right arm to tap a button which triggers the robotic manipulator to position a black knob to an arbitrary position. The monkey is then seen controlling its articulated robotic arm to grasp the knob.After touching the knob the monkey places its mouth on a straw to be rewarded with a drink. By constant repetition the monkey eventually starts placing its mouth on the straw before touching the knob knowing that a drink is coming.This advanced robotic arm has seven-degrees-of-freedom as compared to the four-degrees-of-freedom arm back in 2008. The added three more degrees of freedom adds an articulated wrist which can perform pitch, roll and yaw movements. These movements enable the monkey to precisely turn the knob by rotating the mechanical wrist.By putting the brain in direct communications with machines, researchers will one day be able to engineer and operate advanced prosthetics in a natural way to help paralyzed people live a close to normal life.As of this writing Dr. Schwartz and his colleagues have not published the detailed results of their latest experiments.You can now listen to all PhysOrg.com podcasts at www.physorg.com/podcasts-news/ Citation: Advanced Robotic Arm Controlled by Monkey’s Thoughts (w/ Video) (2010, June 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-06-advanced-robotic-arm-monkeys-thoughts.htmlcenter_img Woman outfitted with robotic arm Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

In the video above monkeys in the Dr. Schwartz’s lab are able to move a robotic arm to feed themselves marshmallows and chunks of fruit while their own arms are restrained.In the experiments conducted this year two sensors were implanted into the monkey’s brain. One was implanted in the hand area and the second in the arm area of its motor cortex. The sensors monitor the firing of motor neurons and send data to the computer that translates the patterns into commands that control the robotic arm.last_img read more

Cardio-vascular set up has received a makeover to facilitate such operations. The hospital also transplanted a kidney on Rashid Khan (60) who had been under the treatment at the hospital with kidney related ailments for some times. The organs were retrieved from Anjana Bhowmik (49) who was declared brain dead due to brain cell stroke on July 2 at a private hospital in Howrah. The SSKM Hospital doctors also preserved the skin of the patient for future use while cornea was sent to a private eye hospital in the city. Another kidney of the victim was transplanted in a patient named Juthika Bibi. Bhowmik, a resident of Rajpur area of Udayranpur suffered a brain stroke on last Sunday. Her health condition deteriorated and the patient was shifted to a private hospital in Howrah’s Andul on Monday. The doctors in the private hospital declared the patient brain dead on Tuesday following which the hospital authorities contacted the Regional Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation as her family members agreed to donate her organs. A special team of doctors was formed to conduct the surgery. The recipients of the organs at SSKM Hospital and the private hospital are responding to the treatment. Victim’s heart and other organs were shifted to SSKM Kolkata on Tuesday night. The SSKM Hospital and the Calcutta Medical College and Hospital have performed a heart transplants.
