It looks like Minecraft, the recently acquired entity by the folks over at Microsoft for a whopping $2.5 billion, has been used rather creatively in different ways in the past, including the recreation of Jurassic Park. However, that is not all, since a map that features the U.K. (Scotland included, I presume) which was made out of Minecraft blocks has just received an upgrade. Ordnance Survey (OS) are the ones behind this map, where it showed off 224,000 sq km (86,000 sq miles) of Britain that required over 22 billion (!) blocks to get the job done.
Robots are pretty useful to have around, but they can prove to be rather tricky to program in order to handle everyday tasks, going to show how complex and wonderfully created our brains are. Mobile robots do prove their worth in homes if they could be able to locate people, places and objects in an accurate manner, and instead of relying on a slew of cameras and laser technology, how about using a different method – through RFID tags?
