  • What If Octopuses Are Aliens from Outer Space?

    5:05

    Watch our Discussed episode where we dive deeper into the topic with Pippa Ehrlich:

    What if I told you we discovered an alien species with an adaptable body? Advanced intelligence? And astounding camouflage skills? Enter the octopus. Wait. What did you think I was talking about? Could these slithery ocean dwellers really be from outer space? Where did they come from? And how did they get to Earth?

  • Is The Octopus An Alien? | Mach | NBC News

    2:23

    The octopus certainly does look strange, with bugged-out eyes, suction-cup tentacles, and the ability to change color for camouflage. But a new paper in a peer-reviewed scientific journal posits that octopuses aren’t just strange: They are ALIENS. Literally.

  • Octopuses: Not Aliens, Still Awesome | True Origins of Cephalopods | Nerd Nite San Francisco

    22:18

    Have you ever heard someone claim that octopuses are really aliens? Or have you ever wondered why so many of our fictional aliens look undeniably octopus-like? Well, octopuses and their fellow cephalopods are truly awesome and even alien–just not in the from-outer-space sense.

  • Why The Octopus Is The Weirdest Animal On Earth

    3:22

    Octopuses are unlike any other organism on Earth. They can regrow limbs, change colors whenever they want, and use tools to their advantage. But perhaps the most unique thing an octopus can do is edit its RNA. By editing their RNA, octopuses make temporary changes to their genetic material and adapt to temperature changes in their environment.

  • Octopuses Are Ridiculously Smart

    4:26

    Octopuses are smart! They play with toys, pull off daring escapes, and are masters of disguise. But they're also smart in a lot of ways that the human mind probably can't comprehend. For example, they basically have independent brains in their arms! Press play to learn way more!

  • Octopus Intelligence Experiment Takes an Unexpected Turn

    5:09

    In this video, we provide our octopus with a twist top bottle that contains a delicious snack. The bottle has a small opening that allows him to get one of his arms through the hole in order to touch and taste the fish. However, due to the small size of the opening, the octopus is unable to pull the fish through.

    The only way he can access his food is to unscrew the top of the bottle. He was able to find another way into the bottle that was not foreseen by his handlers.

    It’s always fun when an experiment takes a turn we did not expect.

    In order to understand the force applied to pop off the white top, we tried to replicate this ourselves. We were able to pop the top off outside of the tank, but when the bottle was inside the tank, we were unable to duplicate what the octopus did. We applied a tremendous amount of force and we were still unable to do what he did inside the water.

    Natural World: The Octopus In My House
    With its three hearts, blue blood and boneless body, the octopus is the closest we may get to meeting an alien. They evolved from a common cousin more than 500 million years ago. But they're also intelligent creatures, with proven problem-solving abilities. So what happens when you invite an eight-legged alien into your living room? This film follows marine biologist David Scheel as he tracks his complex, evolving relationship with his own octopus. Using David’s first-person narrative, and linking his discoveries to octopus stories from all over the world, the film offers an insight into the extraordinary intelligence and behaviour of these incredible creatures.

    Investigators circle the globe in search of evidence in their quest to determine whether life on Earth began in outer space and if aliens influenced mankind in ancient times. Did extraterrestrial beings visit Earth and share information about technology and influence human religions? And more importantly, if aliens visited the planet before, will they return? Alien theorists believe that the answer to both questions is a resounding yes.

So, is our world just an illusion? Why do some physicists believe that physical matter isn't real? What scientific experiments have changed our view of reality?

    I don't wanna go there
    We should never go there
    Why you wanna go there
    I guess I gotta go there
    You're hearing rumors about me
    And you can't stomach the thought
    Of someone touching my body
    When you so close to my heart
    I won't deny what they saying
    Because most of it is true
    But it was all before I fell for you

    So please babe
    So please don't judge me
    And I won't judge you
    'Cause it could get ugly
    Before it gets beautiful
    Please don't judge me
    And I won't judge you
    And if you love me
    Then let it be beautiful

  • The Distributed Mind: Octopus Neurology

    6:44

    CEPHALOPOD WEEK IS NIGH: From June 21 to 28, celebrate our favorite undersea creatures with Science Friday.

    It was in a lab full of marine invertebrates that Dominic Sivitilli first glimpsed something uncanny about the mind of the octopus. Among all those creatures, the octopus “seemed to be studying me as much as I was studying it,” says Sivitilli, a current graduate student in behavioral neuroscience and astrobiology at the University of Washington who works in the lab of David Gire. Together, Gire and Sivitilli study how different kinds of brains process information.

    In addition to using 3D body tracking, Gire’s lab is experimenting with new methods of studying the octopus’ nervous system. In a first-of-its-kind experiment, researchers are attempting to implant an electrophysiological monitoring device into the brain of a living giant Pacific octopus. Using the conductivity of the sea water itself to power the device, the experiment will combine 3-D tracking of the octopus’ movements with the realtime neurological data in an attempt to decode how the animal actually controls its body—and to what degree its arms are autonomous.

    5:26

    SCIENCE FRIDAY'S CEPHALOPOD WEEK 2016 BEGINS May 17th!

    With thousands of chemically-sensitive suckers, color-changing skin, and a brain that literally stretches when they eat, octopuses seem like aliens living in our oceans. Understanding their physical adaptations and how octopuses might process their own sensations requires a flexible imagination. Thankfully, Frank Grasso of Brooklyn College is up to the task. He reveals some of the small biological and behavioral clues that researchers have uncovered as they try to understand these curious creatures.

  • How to Think Like an Octopus

    5:25

    To understand how extraterrestrials might think, one researcher points to the octopus.
    Subscribe so you never miss an episode:
    More info below ↓↓↓

    The place that the octopus evolved — the bottom of the sea — is so alien to us that it might as well be another planet. Some scientists, like Dominic Sivitilli, think it’s the closest we can get to understanding how extraterrestrials might think. The octopi’s sophisticated nervous systems and sensitive suckers allow it to do incredible things like escape aquariums — but Sivitilli is learning how each of an octopus' eight arms might actually have a mind of its own. We don’t know yet if alien life exists, but if they do, they might think like an octopus.

  • Why We Sent Jellyfish To Space

    2:38

    Jellyfish in space? As crazy as it sounds, they're out there! Trace explains how and why they were sent up and the struggle they face back here on Earth.

    Read More:

    Jellyfish are taking over the seas, and it might be too late to stop them

    Last week, Sweden's Oskarshamn nuclear power plant, which supplies 10% of the country's energy, had to shut down one of its three reactors after a jellyfish invasion clogged the piping of its cooling system. The invader, a creature called a moon jellyfish, is 95% water and has no brain. Not what you might call menacing if you only had to deal with one or two.

    Jellyfish born in space aren't happy on Earth

    Why send jellyfish to space? Well, because it's awesome which is true of anything involving space. But mostly because of little crystals that they keep in their bodies, and what these crystals can tell us about long-term human space travel.

    Graviceptor development in jellyfish ephyrae in space and on Earth.

    Graviceptor (rhopalium) development in Aurelia aurita ephyrae which developed on Earth and in space during the nine-day NASA SLS-1 mission was compared.

    Development studies of Aurelia (Jellyfish) ephyrae which developed during the SLS-1 mission

    Aurelia polyps (scyphistomae) and ephyrae were exposed to microgravity for nine days aboard the space shuttle during the SLS-1 mission. During strobilation, polyps segment transversely and each segment develops into an ephyra.

    Poco sappiamo di loro e di quali siano i loro scopi, ma grazie a dei recenti studi sulla loro lingua natia (ormai in parte mescolata con l'italiano) è stato scoperto che sono devoti ad una entità divina extraterrestre a noi ignota nota come il Polpo e che sono soliti consumare una pietanza chiamata dai coloni con il nome di canestrelli.

  • The Secret Of Space Octopuses - Universal - HD Gameplay Trailer

    30:01

    The Secret Of Space Octopuses by Midgar Studio

    The Secret of Space Octopuses is an horizontal scrolling adventure game, mixing platform, puzzle and combat.

    You're following Little Buddy's story, a young earthling who after having been abducted by some aliens, him and his entire village, will try to escape from the world in which he's being held captive.

    To do so, he's going to build a robot out of various junk and trash named B.O.T (Bunch Of Trash) of outstanding capabilities. During his escape, Little Buddy will have the opportunity to unravel his abductor's secrets : The Space Octopuses and his attitude along the adventure will uncover two different endings.

    The game's universe shows itself as cartoon parody within the SF gender where humour is sometime hiding strong language, giving the player freedom of imagination. The scenaristic scenes are but rarely imposed to the player it will then fall on him to observe the colorful environments filled with informations, as well as listening to the numerous discussions between the octopuses to get a full grasp of the scenario. The player will also be able to get some support from the Codex which will fill itself up with useful data while Little buddy is exploring the world.

    During his quest, the player will have to explore the eight labyrinth-type levels that form the Ocotopus world. He'll be able to count on the support from B.O.T's capacities, able to jump, slide, grip, hit, deploy a shield but above all things, absorb various materials to recycle them into boxes. Whereas it'd be plants, rocks or metal boxes and even beasts, there are plenty of materials to choose from. Each material produces a specific type of box. Thus, absorbing rocks will provide RockBoxes which given their natural toughness, could be used as shields, projectiles or once piled up, stairs. Absorbing a particular type of plant will generate GlueBoxes which will have the particularity of sticking to any wall and physical object in the game. They will show themselves to be very useful to hold B.O.T. hanging from a ceiling or to a moving object, and will prove themselves to be very efficient against enemies, getting them stuck on the ground for example.

    There are all kinds of Boxes to discover by exploring the world entirely and the player will find that each box can be of multiple use (bouncing, anti-gravity, brightness, explosive etc...). The levels are designed as to give the player free will over the use of these boxes. Whenever an obstacle appears on his way, there never is only one way or one type of box to solve the problem. Its a gameplay based first and foremost on freedom and experimentation.
    Along his journey, the player will cross the octopuses' path frequently, armed and ready to brawl. Despite them not being very tough, the octopuses balance that weakness by their numbers adding to the fact that the difficulty of the game is dynamic, adapting itself to the player's skill. The more this one sends octopuses to the hospital, the more the enemy's reinforcements will grow in number and fighting capabilities. On the opposite, if the player weakens or even starts to stack the beatings up, he won't be much of a menace anymore, the octopuses' presence will then lower within the levels. This leads to a game that matches every player's skill level without generating any frustration.

    The Secret of Space Octopuses wishes to get back to the long lost atmosphere found in oldschool games while offering a modern and innovative gameplay. The characters are showing logical physical responses and respond perfectly to their environment. For example, hitting an enemy at point blank will make him move backwards whereas a hit loaded with momentum will send him flying into the scenery triggering huge landslides as dangerous to your enemies as they'll be for yourself ! The characters and environment's dynamic behavior will create totally unpredictable situations.

  • The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness | Peter Godfrey Smith | Talks at Google

    46:12

    Other Minds: The Octopus, the Sea, and the Deep Origins of Consciousness

    A philosopher dons a wetsuit and journeys into the depths of consciousness.

    Peter Godfrey-Smith is a leading philosopher of science. He is also an accomplished scuba diver whose underwater videos of warring octopuses have attracted wide notice. In this book, he brings his parallel careers together to tell a bold new story of how nature became aware of itself. Mammals and birds are widely seen as the smartest creatures on earth. But one other branch of the tree of life has also sprouted surprising intelligence: the cephalopods, consisting of the squid, the cuttlefish, and above all the octopus. New research shows that these marvelous creatures display remarkable gifts.

    What does it mean that intelligence on earth has evolved not once but twice? And that the mind of the octopus is nonetheless so different from our own? Combining science and philosophy with firsthand accounts of his cephalopod encounters, Godfrey-Smith shows how primitive organisms bobbing in the ocean began sending signals to each other and how these early forms of communication gave rise to the advanced nervous systems that permit cephalopods to change colors and human beings to speak. By tracing the problem of consciousness back to its roots and comparing the human brain to its most alien and perhaps most remarkable animal relative, Godfrey-Smith's Other Minds sheds new light on one of our most abiding mysteries.

  • Soft robot arm inspired by octopus attaches, wraps around, carries, and releases

    38

    The Tentacle Bot
    Octopus-inspired robot can grip, move, and manipulate a wide range of objects



    Of all the cool things about octopuses (and there’s a lot), their arms may rank among the coolest.

    Two-thirds of an octopus’s neurons are in its arms, meaning each arm literally has a mind of its own. Octopus arms can untie knots, open childproof bottles, and wrap around prey of any shape or size. The hundreds of suckers that cover their arms can form strong seals even on rough surfaces underwater.

    Imagine if a robot could do all that.

    Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Beihang University have developed an octopus-inspired soft robotic arm that can grip, move, and manipulate a wide range of objects. Its flexible, tapered design, complete with suction cups, gives the gripper a firm grasp on objects of all shapes, sizes and textures -- from eggs to iPhones to large exercise balls.

    The soft robot is controlled with two valves, one to apply pressure for bending the arm and one for a vacuum that engages the suckers. By changing the pressure and vacuum, the arm can attach to any object, wrap around it, carry it, and release it.

    “Most previous research on octopus-inspired robots focused either on mimicking the suction or the movement of the arm, but not both,” said August Domel, a recent PhD graduate of Harvard and co-first author of the paper. “Our research is the first to quantify the tapering angles of the arms and the combined functions of bending and suction, which allows for a single small gripper to be used for a wide range of objects that would otherwise require the use of multiple grippers.”

    The research is published in Soft Robotics.

    The researchers began by studying the tapering angle of real octopus arms and quantifying which design for bending and grabbing objects would work best for a soft robot. Next, the team looked at the layout and structure of the suckers (yes, that is the scientific term) and incorporated them into the design.

    “We mimicked the general structure and distribution of these suckers for our soft actuators,” said co-first author Zhexin Xie, a PhD student at Beihang University. “Although our design is much simpler than its biological counterpart, these vacuum-based biomimetic suckers can attach to almost any object.”

    Xie is the co-inventor of the Festo Tentacle Gripper, which is the first fully integrated implementation of this technology in a commercial prototype.

    Researchers control the arm with two valves, one to apply pressure for bending the arm and one for a vacuum that engages the suckers. By changing the pressure and vacuum, the arm can attach to an object, wrap around it, carry it, and release it.

    The researchers successfully tested the device on many different objects, including thin plastic sheets, coffee mugs, test tubes, eggs, and even live crabs. The tapering also allowed the arm to squeeze into confined spaces and retrieve objects.

    “The results from our study not only provide new insights into the creation of next-generation soft robotic actuators for gripping a wide range of morphologically diverse objects, but also contribute to our understanding of the functional significance of arm taper angle variability across octopus species,” said Katia Bertoldi, the William and Ami Kuan Danoff Professor of Applied Mechanics at SEAS, and co-senior author of the study.

    This research was also co-authored by Ning An, Connor Green, Zheyuan Gong, Tianmiao Wang, Elias M. Knubben, James C. Weaver, and Li Wen. It was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grant DMREF-1533985 and Festo Corporate’s project division.
