Student Irvin Cardenas, right, 22, shakes hands with a TeleBot, which combines telepresence and robotics, as he controls its movements with sensors placed around his body, during a demonstration at Florida International University, Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 in Miami. A group of students at FIU's Discovery Lab is testing their version of a RoboCop that will allow disabled police and military personnel to serve as patrol officers. The robot imitates all of the movements of the demonstrator, the student in this case, police or military officers in the future, who is wearing about 30 sensors on their shoulders, elbows, head and fingers. A joystick moves the robot forward, back and in circles. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

Students and passersby watch a demonstration of a TeleBot, right, which combines telepresence and robotics, during a demonstration at Florida International University, Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 in Miami. A group of students at FIU's Discovery Lab is testing their version of a RoboCop that will allow disabled police and military personnel to serve as patrol officers. The TeleBot project began in 2012 when Jeremy Robins, a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy Reserves, donated $20,000 to the Discovery Lab to develop the idea. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

A group of students at FIU's Discovery Lab is testing their version of a RoboCop that will allow disabled police and military personnel to serve as patrol officers. The Telebot has two high definition web cameras in its eyes to generate a live, three-dimensional view, Prabakar said. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

A group of students at FIU's Discovery Lab is testing their version of a RoboCop that will allow disabled police and military personnel to serve as patrol officers. The TeleBot costs about $50,000 and was recently shown to theater goers before the premiere of the latest "RoboCop" movie. Researchers said they were also fans of the original movie series that first aired in the late 80's. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

This undated image provided by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory shows a cylindrical hohlraum container about 0.4 inches tall containing a deuterium and tritium capsule, held by cryogenically-cooled positioning arms. In research reported Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 by the journal Nature, scientists say they've taken a key step toward harnessing nuclear fusion as a new way to generate power, an idea that has been pursued for decades. In tests, 192 laser beams briefly fired into the small gold cylinder which held the two kinds of hydrogen. The energy from the lasers kicked off a process that compressed the ball by an amount akin to squeezing a basketball down to the size of a pea, said Debbie Callahan, an author of the paper. That created the extremely high pressure and temperatures needed to get the hydrogen atoms to fuse. (AP Photo/Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Eddie Dewald)
