Making metallic hydrogen at Harvard
Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, ranging from room-temperature superconductors to powerful rocket propellant.

Designing Collective Behavior in a Termite-Inspired Robotic Construction Team
A team of computer scientists and engineers at Harvard University has created an autonomous robotic construction crew. The system needs no supervisor, no eye in the sky, no blueprint, and no communication: just simple robots—any number of robots—and a very smart algorithm.

Harry Parker: Why we row
Harry L. Parker, the former Thomas Bolles Head Coach for Harvard Men's Crew, was widely regarded as the premier rowing coach in the United States. In his 50 years as head coach, he led his crews to 21 undefeated regular seasons, 24 EARC Sprints varsity titles, 21 JV Sprints crowns, eight official and eight unofficial national championships, including three IRA championships since 2003, and a 42--7 record over Yale in the Harvard-Yale Boat Race. He worked with every U.S. Olympic Rowing Team from 1964 until 1992 and also served as the coach of the first U.S. women's national eight, which won a silver medal at the 1975 World Rowing Championships. He coached the women's crew again in 1976 when they won a bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Montreal.

Reeps One’s beatboxing brilliance at Harvard
Harry Yeff, an award-winning beatboxer who performs under the stage name Reeps One, arrived on campus this week for a weeklong residency as part of Office for the Arts- and Arts @ 29 Garden-sponsored Learning from Performers. The 26-year-old Yeff, who hails from London, comes to Harvard with millions of views on YouTube, and a newly created #ReepsHarvard hashtag inviting his fans to upload “sound tree” videos that he might incorporate into his residency. Earlier in the week, Yeff spoke to two classes, Aleksei Nazarov’s Sound of Language course in the department of linguistics and Ruth Lingford’s animation workshop in Visual and Environmental Studies. He created a spontaneous public art project Tuesday on the Science Plaza, and is scheduled to lead a Saturday afternoon beatboxing workshop before performing at Lowell Lecture Hall in the evening. Both events are free and open to the public.

Harvard report: Dogs reduce stress
A recent Harvard Medical School report, “Get Healthy, Get a Dog,” (http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/having-a-dog-can-help-your-heart--literally) highlights the many health and social benefits of having a dog, including reducing stress, being more active, and promoting social connection. Here we meet a few prominent members of Harvard’s canine community, and learn from Elizabeth Pegg Frates, clinical assistant professor at the Medical School, about how they might be a wonderful addition to any community.

Origami-Inspired Artificial Muscles
Artificial muscles could make soft robots safer and stronger. Researchers at the Wyss Institute, Harvard SEAS, and MIT CSAIL have developed a novel design approach for origami-inspired artificial muscles, capable of lifting 1000x its own weight. The muscles are made of a compressible skeleton and air or fluid medium encased in a flexible skin, and are powered by pressure difference. The muscle motions are programmed based on the structural geometry of the skeleton. Multi-directional motions can also be programmed into the material. Artificial muscles can also grip, lift, and twist objects. A variety of materials and fabrication methods can be used to create low-cost artificial muscles. These artificial muscles are fast, light-weight, and powerful, and could be used for miniature medical devices, deployable structures, or wearable robotics.

Talking parrots and the origins of human intelligence
Arguably best known for her work with another parrot, Alex, whose intelligence was estimated as equal to that of a 6-year-old child, Irene Pepperberg in recent decades effectively rewrote concepts of animal intelligence and how those findings could shed light on the origins of human intellect. Earlier this year she relocated her lab from Brandeis University to Harvard, where she has continued her experiments with Griffin and a new bird, Athena, who is just 6 months old. Pepperberg's most recent research, which was conducted with Harvard psychology Professor Ken Nakayama, showed that Griffin could correctly identify shapes even when they were partly obscured. This capacity likely has its origins in survival abilities — for example, in recognizing a partially hidden predator. Read more: http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2013/12/polly-want-a-vocabulary/

3D Printing of Lightweight Cellular Composites
Materials scientists at Harvard University have created lightweight cellular composites via 3D printing. These fiber-reinforced epoxy composites mimic the structure and performance of balsa wood. Because the fiber fillers align along the printing direction, their local orientation can be exquisitely controlled. These 3D composites may be useful for wind turbine, automotive and aerospace applications, where high stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratios are needed.
