EPISODE: 3/093 The Technological World
The Technological World: It’s said Computing Power doubles every 18 months! With that in mind it’s about time we checked in with the technological world. We take to the skies with a 3D mapping drone, we find out what’s hot and what’s not with a thermal imaging 3D scanner and we generate electricity with some outdoor play equipment!
Hovermap: 3D mapping tall outdoor structures and other hard to reach places can be a major pain, but as Dr Stefan Hrabar from the CSIRO explains, with a bit of cool tech, it will soon be a little bit easier.
Autonomous Robotics: Piloting drones, driving cars and packaging biscuits! Robotics are becoming more autonomous every day. We meet Daniel Griffiths from the Mechatronic Engineering and Robotics Club and his autonomous robot that took out the NIARC national robotics competition.
DIY Science – Fruit Battery: Technology and electricity go together like peas and carrot! Junior Scientists Lucy and Brittany look at how fruit can be used to power a small LED light!

Heatwave: Thermal imaging is nothing new, but when you combined it with 3D scanning technology it opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Join Dr Peyman Moghadam from the CSIRO as he shows off his new gadget that does just that!
Infinity Swing: It doesn’t matter how old you are, everyone loves a swing! We investigate how Eamonn Bermingham from CSIRO is using his particular swing set to light up our world and bring music to our ears … literally!
So for the latest and greatest in technological advancements tune in for this episode of SCOPE: where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
