This April 2010 photo provided by Canturi Jewels shows international fine jewelry designer Stefano Canturi creating a custom-designed Barbie in his studio in Sydney, Australia. The Barbie is wearing a necklace featuring a one-carat pink diamond, which will make the doll the world's most expensive Barbie when it goes on the auction block. On Oct. 20, 2010, Christie's in New York will sell the Barbie for an estimated $300,000 to $500,000. All proceeds will benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (AP Photo/Canturi Jewels) NO SALES

Snow shoots out of a remotely-controlled snowblower in the parking lot of Wausau West High School in Wausau, Wis. on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. The device is being developed by a team of 13 students at the high school through a grant from MIT and the Lemmelson Foundation. The team hopes to turn it into an autonomous device.

A TeleBot, which combines telepresence and robotics is shown 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 has two high definition web cameras in its eyes to generate a live, three-dimensional view. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)

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)

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)

Nagarajan Prabakar, right, a computer science associate professor at Florida International University, demonstrates how the two high definition web cameras in the eyes of a TeleBot, which combines telepresence and robotics, work to generate a live, three-dimensional view of what the robot is seeing during a demonstration of a 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 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)
