[A Post-Apocalyptic Time]

Added on 22/12/2012

It is 22nd December 2012 and I am writing from a post-apocalyptic time. Some said the old gods would come to reclaim their lower-race slaves, some said it will be the Sun or some other cosmic tragedy that will suddenly evaporate us all. But something much worse happened - the human race survived and the everyday apocalypse that we cause to this planet continues on. 

So let's happily celebrate by building a few more nuclear weapons. And let's send our soldiers to fight endless and pointless wars, while we all keep preparing for Christmas, one of the biggest opportunities of this blinded commercialised society to forget all its problems for a while. No worries - we can always pay for everything by money borrowed from other countries that borrowed it from other countries that made it out of thin air. And, while our unborn grandchildren pay the price for our ignorance, let's keep wasting our lives and destroying all that has created and nurtured us for so long - it seems like we will have to finish off the Earth the old fashioned way after all.

Companies like Apple, Microsoft or Blizzard...

Why I Left Facebook
I decided to delete almost all my activity and all my photos from Facebook when they announced that Timeline would become compulsory. While I really think that Timeline is a bad idea as it lets your history be browsed in a very easy manner, this was not the only reason I left...
V-REP, Gazebo or ARGoS? A robot simulators comparison
Let’s have a look at three commonly used open-source simulators for robotics: V-REP, Gazebo and ARGoS, to find out which one suits your project the best.
Designing Effective Roadmaps for Robotics Innovation
Automated factories, autonomous delivery drones, self-driving cars: these and similar technologies will soon touch every aspect of our lives. An engaging discussion about how these technologies are regulated and innovated took place at the IROS 2017 conference.
