The OutRunner is a biologically inspired robot designed to emulate running. Its six-legged design resembles the spokes of a wheel without the rim. Dr. Sebastien Cotton has been working as a research scientist at IHMC for the past four years. He is also CEO and founder of <a href="http://robotics-unlimited.com.">Robotics Unlimited</a>, the company developing OutRunner.</p> Fri, 16 May 2014 18:26:55 +0000 Katya Ivanov 9214 at http://wuwf.org Local Engineers Develop A Robot For Everyone Interview With Dr. Bruce Ames: Nutrition Via Biochemistry & Molecular Biology http://wuwf.org/post/interview-dr-bruce-ames-nutrition-biochemistry-molecular-biology <p>Food is so plentiful that getting enough to eat seems assured. But because of the low quality of the diets and food so many people consume, most of us are deficient in at least some critical vitamins and minerals. As a result, the body, faced with shortages of key nutrients, quietly sacrifices long-term health for short-term survival. The result is age-related diseases like cancer, heart disease, immune dysfunction and cognitive decline.</p> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 19:39:01 +0000 Carl Wernicke 7836 at http://wuwf.org Interview With Dr. Bruce Ames: Nutrition Via Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Research And Robots Expanding In Downtown Pensacola http://wuwf.org/post/research-and-robots-expanding-downtown-pensacola <p>A non-profit technology institute in Pensacola is set to begin a major expansion of its downtown campus.
