Dual Propeller Circular Drone - Flybotix

July 16, 2019

Ring-shaped dual-prop drone boasts twice the flight time of quadcopters... The shorter a drone's propellers, the less efficient they are at keeping it airborne. That factor, along with compact, low-capacity batteries, is the reason that small drones can't fly for very long. A new two-prop drone, however, is claimed to deliver twice the flight time as similar-sized quadcopters.

Measuring about 30 cm wide (12 inches), the ring-shaped drone has two counter-rotating horizontal propellers stacked one above the other within its foam body. Because those props are longer than those that would be used in a same-size quadcopter, they provide more lift. Additionally, because the battery is only powering two motors instead of four, it doesn't run out as quickly.

3D Printed House

June 04, 2019

The first on-site house has been printed in Russia. The first house printed using mobile 3D printing technology has been built in Stupino town, Moscow region. The Apis Cor and PIK companies have successfully completed the project.

Design of the single-story residential house is rather unusual. This project was selected specifically, as one of the main purposes of this construction is to demonstrate the flexibility of equipment and diversity of available forms. The house can be of any shape, including the familiar square shape, because the additive technology has no restrictions on design of new buildings, except for the laws of physics. It means it’s time to talk about the new fantastic potential of architectural solutions. The house was erected in the coldest time of the year. Winter has added complexity to the project participants, as the use of concrete mixture, that is used as the printing «ink», is only possible at temperatures above 5° C. Although, the equipment itself is able to operate in temperatures down to minus 35° C. The problem was solved by setting up a tent which provided the required temperature.

Rotary Actuated Dodecahedron

May 28, 2019

Studying aliens of the deep... Folding polyhedron sampler enables easy capture and release of delicate underwater organisms.

(CAMBRIDGE, Mass.) — The open ocean is the largest and least explored environment on Earth, estimated to hold up to a million species that have yet to be described. However, many of those organisms are soft-bodied – like jellyfish, squid, and octopuses – and are difficult to capture for study with existing underwater tools, which all too frequently damage or destroy them. Now, a new device developed by researchers at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute, John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study safely traps delicate sea creatures inside a folding polyhedral enclosure and lets them go without harm using a novel, origami-inspired design. The research is reported in Science Robotics.

Geizeer - Eco Friendly Ice Cooling

November 07, 2018

Geizeer was born from the necessity to make our work space more comfortable, at a cost of few cents a day. It is not always possible nor healthy to use air conditioners on a daily basis.

 

The high energy consumption makes it a comfortable accessory but an excessive use can cause discomfort, such as headache, stiff neck, back pain and respiratory problems. And that goes for the use of fans: by mobilizing the air, you can feel a sense of coolness but, in the meantime, you are stimulating sweat and increasing the risk of dehydration. Working, studying, sleeping, watching TV or enjoying a meal can be difficult during the hot sunny days as a consequence.

2C3D OrenGeva Depth Sensing Camera

October 30, 2018

2C3D is a camera that enables the blinds to see. The camera, is a development and design of a tactile camera concept for the vision impaired. The camera creates 3D photos and videos and has a 3D screen.

 

The screen, inspired by "Pin Toy," is built by numerous 3D pixels that shift depending on the photo to forms the 3D shot on the screen surface (giving the term "touch screen" a new and more literal interpretation).​ The user can touch the screen while photographing and feel what the camera is seeing, in real time. When the users like what they feels, they can click and save the photo. The saved 3D file can be felt again later.

 

The 2C3D performs as a camera for blind and as physical-digital photo album. Design for unique needs communities such as the wide blinds community is practically challenging because the design should be extremely intuitive. The way of using the product should be simple and pleasant, and those are the values are transmitted by the design. Combining between known and recognized elements with new and inventive elements in the design and the idea itself, generates an innovative camera.

Disney's Robot Acrobat

October 07, 2018

Stickman: Towards a Human Scale Acrobatic Robot We present a simple two degree of freedom robot that uses a gravity-driven pendulum launch and produces a variety of somersaulting stunts. Human performers have developed impressive acrobatic techniques over thousands of years of practicing the gymnastic arts.

 

At the same time, robots have started to become more mobile and autonomous and can begin to imitate these stunts in dramatic and informative ways. We present a simple two degree of freedom robot that uses a gravity-driven pendulum launch and produces a variety of somersaulting stunts. The robot uses an IMU and a laser range-finder to estimate its state mid-flight and actuates to change its motion both on and off the pendulum. We discuss the dynamics of this behavior in a framework of acrobatic capability and present experimental results.

BionicFinWave

October 04, 2018

BionicFinWave Underwater robot with unique fin drive The marine planarian, cuttlefish and Nile perch have one thing in common: in order to propel themselves, they use their fins to generate a continuous wave, which advances along their entire length. With this so-called undulating fin movement, the BionicFinWave also manoeuvres through a pipe system made of acrylic glass.

At the same time the autonomous underwater robot is able to communicate with the outside world wirelessly and transmit data – such as the recorded sensor values for temperature and pressure – to a tablet.

Scientists Just Showed It's Possible to Split Water Into Hydrogen And Oxygen in Space

July 15, 2018

a new study, published in Nature Communications, shows that it is possible to produce hydrogen (for fuel) and oxygen (for life) from water alone using a semiconductor material and sunlight (or star light) in zero gravity – making sustained space travel a real possibility.

Using the unbounded resource of the sun to power our everyday life is one of the biggest challenges on Earth. As we are slowly moving away from oil towards renewable sources of energy, researchers are interested in the possibility of using hydrogen as fuel.

At This Lab, 'Mad Scientists' Are Making Outlandish Tech a Reality

July 12, 2018

Mad scientists in science fiction get a bad rap. And it's their own fault; they do weird things like stitching together corpses and re-animating them with electricity, as Dr. Victor Frankenstein did in Mary Shelley's novel "Frankenstein," or building a time-traveling DeLorean powered by a plutonium-fueled nuclear reactor, a la Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) in the "Back to the Future" films.

But real-life "mad scientist" Rich DeVaul (he bears the actual title "head of mad science" at X, The Moonshot Factory) believes mad science also has a positive side; it also means daring to do the improbable and creating technology that can change the world.
