Eerily lifelike robots will walk among us in just 20 years

The threats, and benefits, of artificial intelligence are discussed almost on a daily basis, but now the view of one robot has been revealed from its own mouth.

When quizzed by robotics designer, an eerie-looking humanoid called Sophia revealed 'she would like to go to school, have a family....'

The comments were made as Hanson questioned her about her aspirations and beliefs - and he claims robots like Sophia will be walking among us and be as conscious as humans in just 20 years

In a video for robotics designer David Hanson questions 'Sophia' - an eerily realistic robot designed to potentially work in healthcare, education or a customer service role.

Futuristic designs reveal how climate change could cause us to live in the oceans or in orbit

With a growing global population and threats of rising sea levels, architects are starting to look to the sea and sky to solve the impending housing crisis.

As part of the sixth edition of the annual International Future Architecture competition, entrants have been asked to imagine life where the oceans and space would be populated with extraordinary buildings and towns.

And to promote the competition, and encourage designers to enter, the team has compiled the best designs from recent years.

Fossil reptile discovery 'something extraordinary'

A newly discovered 250-million-year-old fossil reptile from Brazil gives an "extraordinary" insight into life just before the dinosaurs appeared.

At the time, the world was recovering from a massive extinction that wiped out most living species, according to BBC.

The reptile, named Teyujagua or "fierce lizard", is the close relative of a group that gave rise to dinosaurs, crocodiles and birds.

The fossil is "beautiful" and fills an

How to overcome anger

Many people had bad and hard time due to the stress they face such as the death of a friend.

Of course it varies from one person to another due to the difference between people and their capability of facing life.

Human personality can suddenly turn from happiness to sadness or fear (from good mood to bad mood), but it is hard to be the opposite.

 We have to control our feelings and emotions in a way which keeps us far from those people that affect our feeling, and to take the problems in easy ways, and to make ourselves busy in other things.

Besides, We have to relax to overcome our anger and to restore our normal life.

5,000 year old Egyptian garment confirmed as world's oldest dress

An ancient bundle of rags discovered in an Egyptian tomb more than a century ago actually contained the world's oldest dress - but it wasn't spotted for almost 65 years after excavation.

In 1977, researchers uncovered a ‘curious,’ pleated V-neck shirt among the dirty linens, a portion of what was once likely a floor-length Tarkhan dress.

Now, radiocarbon dating has confirmed that this article is the oldest known woven garment in the world, dating back between 5,100 and 5,500 years.

The ancient linen dress is made of materials from the beginning of the First Dynasty, or possibly earlier, during the Naqada III period.

Radiocarbon dating conducted in 2015 by the University of Oxford puts its origins at 3482-3102 BC, based on a sample of the intact garment.

With pleated sleeves and bodice, the Tarkhan Dress is the earliest example of clothing that was individually tailored.

Other early historical garments uncovered by archaeologists were draped or wrapped upon the body, but this one is cut and fitted.
