Yesterday, there was a wall of Tesla patents in the lobby of our Palo Alto headquarters. That is no longer the case. They have been removed, in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.

Tesla Motors was created to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology.

When I started out with my first company, Zip2, I thought patents were a good thing and worked hard to obtain them. And maybe they were good long ago, but too often these days they serve merely to stifle progress, entrench the positions of giant corporations and enrich those in the legal profession, rather than the actual inventors. After Zip2, when I realized that receiving a patent really just meant that you bought a lottery ticket to a lawsuit, I avoided them whenever possible....

BioLite Stoves make cooking on wood as clean, safe, and easy as modern fuels, while generating electricity to charge phones, lights and other electronics off-grid.

With only a handful of twigs, trash, leaves, or pinecones, it can charge an iPhone 4S in as little as 20 minutes of burn time, while boiling a liter of water in under five minutes!

Click the image to find out more and purchase with the security of Amazon.com, as well as helping support TruthisTreason.net! 

Using BioLite’s patent-pending thermoelectric technology, BioLite Stoves convert heat to electricity, which in turn, powers a fan to make the fire ultra-efficient. Excess electricity is then used to power low voltage electronics, such as LED lighting, cellphones, and radios. By having a device that can serve multiple purposes, you can reduce your payload weight and save space.

BioLite recently added two great additions to their line-up, the grill and kettle attachments. With the KettlePot, you need only bring a single piece of cookware that can satisfy a variety of situations and needs. Whether you are making a pot of coffee to start your day or cooking a meal for four at the end of a long hike, the BioLite KettlePot is a true grab-and-go system, conveniently housing the actual stove within itself when on the move....

The Avenger (formerly Predator C), whose prototype flew its first flight in 2009, is operationally ready after a new round of tests completed last month, according to its maker, General Atomics. Based on the company’s more well-known MQ-9 Reaper drone, Avenger is designed to perform high-speed, long-endurance surveillance or strike missions, flying up to 500 mph at a maximum of 50,000 feet for as long as 18 hours.

Compared to its earlier prototype, Avenger’s fuselage has been increased by four feet to accommodate larger payloads and more fuel, allowing for extended missions. It can carry up to 3,500 pounds internally, and its 66-foot wingspan is capable of carrying weapons as large as a 2,000-pound Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).

Switching from propeller-driven drones to jets will allow the CIA to continue its Pakistan strikes from a more distant base, if and when the U.S. is forced to withdraw troops entirely from neighboring Afghanistan.

Excerpt from US Patent #20140025755

“When there are at least a given number of video clips with similar time stamps and geolocation stamps uploaded to a repository, it is inferred that an event of interest has likely occurred, and a notification signal is transmitted (e.g., to a law enforcement agency, to a news organization, to a publisher of a periodical, to a public blog, etc.).”

Hayden’s Note:

I feel the need to comment on this issue because I am such a tech-geek. While I absolutely love our electronic frontier, and the constant pushing of boundaries and new ideas, I am also a staunch privacy and Constitutional advocate. As our technology stretches into what was once only science fiction, it is hard to develop apps or widgets that provide services without them also invading our private lives.

I am interested to hear what you have to think about not only this Android patent, but the rapid growth of personal technology. Do you see this particular tech as a benefit or a hindrance?

Let’s file this under the category of, “Yes, please! I want one!”, as well as, “Really Creepy” in the hands of our Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcers.

Prox Dynamics PD-100 Black Hornet Micro UAV / Drone

In a world of delicate, experimental nano-drones, the Black Hornet is the first operational system deployed. A hand-launched observation drone, it can resist gusting winds, fly for 25 minutes, and travel nearly a mile from its operator. The autopilot can follow GPS coordinates to conduct a preplanned patrol or simply hover and stare. All in a drone that weighs less than 0.6 ounces. – Popular Science

With the race for practical, affordable surveillance drones in high gear, I thought this little guy could serve some interesting purposes for the regular Joe. Several of my friends have large farms and use amateur, bulky octo-copter drones to check on irrigation systems, cattle, fence lines, and more.

In a SHTF situation, this micro UAV could prove invaluable for area recon and intelligence, as well as everyday tasks such as the aforementioned activities, especially with it’s integrated pan & tilt camera....

Google Purchases Boston Dynamics, the DARPA-Funded Robotics Firm

Google announced on Friday the 13th, 2013, that it has acquired Boston Dynamics, the robotics and engineering firm that has been hard at work on SkyNet Department of Defense projects such as Big Dog, Cheetah, WildCat, PetMan, and Atlas.

The Massachusetts-based company continues to pump out machines that can jump, climb stairs, navigate disaster areas, run, carry heavy payloads, and even gallop at close to 30mph.

“It is the eighth robotics company that Google has acquired in the last half-year. Executives at the internet giant are circumspect about what exactly they plan to do with their robot collection. But Boston Dynamics and its animal kingdom-themed machines bring significant cachet to Google’s robotic efforts, which are being led by Andy Rubin, the Google executive who spearheaded the development of Android, the world’s most widely used smartphone software.” – New York Times

The acquisition also raises questions as to what Google might do with their robotic menagerie. Amazon recently released their new drone-delivery idea and makes one wonder if Google plans something similar....

Amazon.com is testing delivering packages using drones, CEO Jeff Bezos said on the CBS TV news show 60 Minutes Sunday.

The idea would be to deliver packages as quickly as possible using the small, unmanned aircraft, through a service the company is calling Prime Air, the CEO said.

Amazon PrimeAir Octocopter

 

 

 

Bezos played a demo video on 60 Minutes that showed how the aircraft, also known as octocopters, will pick up packages in small yellow buckets at Amazon’s fulfillment centers and fly through the air to deliver items to customers after they hit the buy button online at Amazon.com.

The goal of the new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less, the world’s largest Internet retailer said. Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take “some number of years” as Amazon develops the technology further and waits for the Federal Aviation Administration to come up with rules and regulations, the company added.

Bezos told 60 Minutes that the service could be up and running in as few as four years — although he noted that he is an optimist when it comes to such things....

Wildcat, Boston Dynamic’s Newest DARPA Robot, is a Load Bearing, Galloping, Metal Beast

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Movies, TV, & Video Games, Police, Military, & War, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

This month’s hulking, Skynet killer robot is the Wildcat. Designed and built with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Boston Dynamics continues to improve upon previous designs such as the Cheetah and the Big Dog. Wildcat is a four-legged, load-bearing robot able to gallop, run, and turn corners at relatively impressive speeds.

“It is being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far, WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat’s best performance so far,” Boston Dynamics reports.

If you are familiar with basic human anatomy or robotic design, you realize how difficult it is to recreate the natural human gait, or walking gesture. Boston Dynamics has created several upright, bi-ped robots, such as PetMan and Atlas, that do a great job at mimicking the human walk, as well as climbing stairs and maintaining balance while traversing obstacles. Creating a four-legged beast that can maintain it’s balance, speed, and center of gravity, over uneven terrain and environments, is no easy task, either....

More Americans Successfully Sign-up for One-Way Mission to Mars than Obamacare

Posted on Oct 18, 2013 in Political Issues, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Mars One is a non-profit organization with plans to establish a permanent human colony on Mars by 2023. The private spaceflight project is led by Dutch entrepreneur Bas Lansdorp, and will launch four volunteer astronauts on a one-way flight to Mars in 2022. The historic journey will be documented for a reality show set to broadcast around the clock.

The four lucky astronauts will be selected from a pool of more than 200,000 applicants, all whom are vying for the chance to rocket to the red planet where they will face a hostile, barren environment, where temperatures plummet to -238*F. Their lives will be televised, every minute, until they die on the martian surface, with no way to ever return to Earth.

Sounds pretty extreme to most, however, the 200,000 applicants still outnumber those who have actually enrolled in the illustrious Affordable Care Act – often referred to as Obamacare – by an order of 6 to 1.

A measly 36,000 American citizens have actually signed up for the healthcare exchange.

With that said, many more have TRIED to enroll....

New Quantum Experiment: Effect Happens Before Cause Thumbnail

New Quantum Experiment: Effect Happens Before Cause

A real-world demonstration of a thought experiment conducted at the University of Vienna, has produced a result that is somewhat befuddling to people with what the lead researcher calls a “naïve classical world view.” Two pairs of particles are either quantum-entangled or not. One person makes the decision as to whether to entangle them or not, and another pair of people measure the particles to see whether they’re entangled or not.

The head-scratcher is: the measurement is made before the decision is made, and it is accurate. “Classical correlations can be decided after they are measured,” says Xiao-song Ma, the writer of the study. Entanglement can be created “after the entangled particles have been measured and may no longer exist.”

The finding can be integrated into potential quantum computers, one hopes.

Causality, clearly, is a quaint, irrelevant concept.

EMP Attack and Solar Storms, Part II: Cascading Failures and Nuclear Meltdown

Posted on Jun 27, 2013 in Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Featured Articles, Science & Technology

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Some time ago, we discussed the broad implications of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, such as that from an aerial detonation of a nuclear device, and the similar effects of a large solar storm or coronal mass ejection from the sun.  In that discussion, we looked at the overall aspects of the crisis, including interruptions to our trucking industry, which in turn would represent a massive failure in our food, health, and fuel delivery systems.  Other topics included traffic gridlock, potential vehicle failure, and briefly, what to expect after the lights go out.

In Part II of this guide, we will dive into a more technical look at what even the most minor of electrical hiccups and disturbances can do to our delicate, computerized world, as well as explore how interconnected our society truly is.  However, in order to adequately set the stage for understanding the grave threat under conditions in which all of our infrastructures fall prey to simultaneous failure, it is imperative to understand that the “vulnerability of the whole — of all the highly interlocked critical infrastructures — may be greater than the sum of the vulnerability of its parts.” (1)

If a singular system goes down, it can result in a cascade of failures across the spectrum, from communications, to banking, to government services, and even water treatment and sanitation. ...

Naomi Wolf & Healthy Skepticism: Creeping Concern That NSA Leaker is Not Who He Purports to Be

I’m still waiting for Snowden to release something, anything, that hasn’t been intuitively obvious to me for at least the past 15 years, and confirmed as fact since 2006/’07 (Mark Klein/Room641A).

Source: Facebook / Naomi Wolf:

I hate to do this but I feel obligated to share, as the story unfolds, my creeping concern that the NSA leaker is not who he purports to be, and that the motivations involved in the story may be more complex than they appear to be. This is in no way to detract from the great courage of Glenn Greenwald in reporting the story, and the gutsiness of the Guardian in showcasing this kind of reporting, which is a service to America that US media is not performing at all. It is just to raise some cautions as the story unfolds, and to raise some questions about how it is unfolding, based on my experience with high-level political messaging.

Some of Snowden’s emphases seem to serve an intelligence/police state objective, rather than to challenge them....

NSA PRISM Whistleblower Edward Snowden: Truth is Treason

Posted on Jun 10, 2013 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Science & Technology, Social Networking

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Ed Snowden, a 29-year old, former CIA analyst and defense contractor talks about the intelligence community, NSA capabilities, and why he blew the whistle on the government’s secretive activities.

Snowden left a $200,000 a year job, stationed in Hawaii, in order to provide this information. He now potentially faces treason charges if he is not protected under whistleblower exceptions, and mentions the possibility of being “rendered” by the CIA as he camps out in Hong Kong awaiting the government’s next move.
