That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab's Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.

Without all the useless electronic technology we have today, the ancients were able to come up with some pretty impressive things that might blow your mind. Certain things we thought of in the past

10. Lycurgus Cup
This photo we see here shows the Lycurgus Cup which was created in the 4th century AD by the Romans. What’s strange about the cup isn’t just the depiction of the mythical King Lycurgus being wrapped in vines but the mysterious glass that was used to create it. Depending on which way the light is hitting it, it changes colors. This seems to be a luxurious roman object that was recovered from a sarcophagus and was even eventually acquired by the Rothschild family, mysteriously enough. It was sold to the British museum for 20, 000 pounds in 1958. Fine particles of gold and silver were added to the glass that would ultimately help it change it’s colors, according to some theories. What’s even more fascinating about this cup is that it appears to be the first example of nanotechnology and these metallic particles are spread only 70 nanometers across and cannot be seen with an optical microscope.
9. The Gold Encrusted Dagger of Stonehenge
Just half a mile from stonehenge, what was believed to be the original “jewels of the King of Stonehenge” were found. This priceless relic from the past is extremely well detailed and the studs were thinner than a hole in a threading needle. The overlapping fish scale design took an incredible amount of time to create, with over 140, 000 tiny gold studs, and would have been fit for only a king to enjoy. What’s even more astonishing is the period in which it was created. With this being made 4, 000 years ago and using microscopic particles of gold; it’s quite impressive.
8. King Tut’s Meteorite dagger
King tut is known for his remarkable tomb but one thing that might get overlooked is his meteorite dagger! The only other dagger found on him was made of gold. Boring. What leads archaeologists to believe that this is dagger is from outer space, is that the iron was an extremely rare substance to come across during the bronze age and it’s abnormally large nickel concentration.How could this be though? Iron smelting didn’t even exist in egypt until about the 6th century BC.. Researchers at the Polytechnic University in Milan in the 1970’s, had inconclusive results originally but taking advantage of new technology, they decided to test this theory again. The blade closely matched elements found in meteorites containing mostly iron, but cobalt and nickel as well. What else might we discover from this young man’s tomb?
7. Maine Penny
An 11th century Viking coin was found on the coast of Maine which seems to support direct European contact of American soil. If you haven’t destroyed your history books yet, it’s believed that this coin was used for trade among the Native Americans and tribes of the area. Imagine Viking longboats sailing across the shores of the present day united states. The coin was found in a known Native American settlement called Naskeag Point and you have to wonder what other places the vikings may have travelled to. Could this be evidence we need to declare that the Vikings made it further west than Greenland.

What is graphene? What is it used for? The most amazing thing about this semi-metal of the future is the fact that you can produce it yourself in your living room!
What is graphene, and why is it so amazing? One of the things that makes graphene so cool is that it’s the thinnest material you can imagine. It's just one atom thick! This means this material is mathematically 2-dimensional. And you can still hold this single layer of atoms in your hands!
Surprisingly, graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers!
Why graphene is so amazing 1:05
How graphene was discovered 1:48
How expensive graphene is 2:15
What the properties of graphene are 2:41

SUMMARY: — Graphene isn't a unique or rare substance. In fact, it has the same carbon structure as the graphite you use every day when you draw or write with your pencil! But at the same time, in 0.03” of graphite, there are about 3 million graphene layers! — Dr. Konstantin Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim discovered the wonder-material in 2004 at the University of Manchester. They were examining how efficient graphite is as a transistor. The story goes that graphene appeared thanks to sticky tape! — Graphene used to be incredibly expensive to manufacture. It cost a whopping $1, 100 to produce enough graphene to cover the head of a pin. However, by the end of 2015, you could buy 0.35 oz of graphene for $1, 000. — Graphene is incredibly stretchy. It can stretch as much as 25% of its length! This material is also really stiff. Actually, it’s the hardest material people know about — even harder than diamonds, and that says a lot! — One more great thing about graphene is its relationship with electricity. This material carries electricity more quickly, more precisely, and more efficiently than any other known material. — Graphene may be the answer to the water crisis many countries are facing. If we make membranes from graphene, they would be able to let water through while filtering out salt at the same time. — One layer of graphene is impressive enough. Can you imagine what you could achieve with 2 layers of this super material? Nothing short of incredibly strong body armor. — If producers start to use graphene in gadget manufacturing, we might end up with smartphones that can be bent in any direction. One of graphene’s main properties is its flexibility. — Graphene can be used in the beauty industry as well. It will be the perfect alternative to current hair dyes, most of which are still toxic and damaging to hair. — Well, you can potentially make graphene at home, provided you have enough time and patience to do so.

In the first episode of Humans , Motherboard dives into the world of future prosthetics, and the people working on closing the gap between man and machine.
We follow Melissa Loomis, an amputee from Ohio, who had experimental nerve reversal surgery and is going to Johns Hopkins' Applied Physics Lab to test out its latest Modular Prosthetic Limb, a cutting-edge bionic arm funded in part by DARPA. Neuro-interfacing machinery is a game changer in terms rehabilitating patients, but what possibilities do these advancements open for the future?
