Robots programmed specifically to punch humans might sound like a foolish idea, given the fears about machines overthrowing their human creators. Much like stairs posed a problem for the Daleks in Doctor Who, the Achilles Heel of modern intelligent robots appears to be the baffling world of IKEA furniture. A group of engineers set themselves the goal of developing a robot capable of undertaking this baffling task – by getting one to assemble a chair from the Swedish furniture store.

Raging debate is finally extinguished thanks to study that puts distance at just 1. 6 miles Humans were thought to be able to spot candle flames up to 30 miles away Astronomers compared candles to the brightness of the faintest stars Humans can... It turns out that, despite what the title suggests, humans are only capable of seeing 30 hues between black and white. A recent scientific paper examining how the human eye might respond to electronic screens used by ebooks makes the claim. By comparison the human eye is thought to be capable of detecting around 10 million unique colours.

Professor Krisciunas and Mr Carona said they were inspired to look at the problem after...
