The MegaBots ‘Mad Scientists’ Want To Finally Make Robot Fighting A Reality

Posted by GarageLab on October 30, 2014 at 6:29pm 0 Comments

Are you the type of person who watched the Hugh Jackman comedy Real Steel and thought, “This is pretty great, this robot fighting… someone should do this for real”? If you answered yes and have a few hundred thousand dollars to spare, then today might be your lucky day.

A team of “more than 20 engineers, scientists, designers, artists, fabricators, and producers” from Boston that calls itself MegaBots, Inc. recently …


Tutorial: How to use the Motion Sensor PIR

Posted by GarageLab on October 29, 2014 at 8:43am 0 Comments

Hello Guys! On this tutorial We're going to learn How to use the motion sensor PIR. For the demonstration we'll use a system with three outputs - A sound played by a speaker, a LED turning on and a message printed on the serial monitor.

Let's get started!

Material Used:

1 - Motion Sensor…


Laser oscillators promise to retire quartz crystals

Posted by GarageLab on October 29, 2014 at 5:11am 0 Comments

All electronic devices rely on components called oscillators that create precise frequencies used as a kind of clock to determine its rate of operation.

Now, researchers have developed a technique to stabilize the microwave signals in the GHz band using as reference a pair of laser beams, rather than a quartz crystal.

"The electrical crossovers widely used in electronics can work at frequencies not exceeding 50 or 100 GHz. Our new architecture is a hybrid electro-optic gear that stabilizes an electric oscillator common microwave at much higher frequencies in the range of terahertz, or trillions of cycles per second, "explains Li Jiang, the California Institute of…


1:4 Scale Transforming Robot Car: Project J-deite

Posted by GarageLab on October 28, 2014 at 5:00am 0 Comments

Kenji, Wataru Yoshizaki and Takara Tomy launched Project J-deite. The J-deite Quarter is 1.3m tall (4.3ft) and weighs 35kg (77lb.). It has a 3kW battery that lasts up to an hour per charge. In robot mode, the J-deite Quarter can walk up to 1kph (0.62mph), grip objects and pose like a bad ass. In vehicle mode, it turns into a two-seater that can goes up to 10kph (6.2mph).

Robotic hand uses the power of static electricity to pick up apples and iPads

Posted by GarageLab on October 27, 2014 at 7:00am 0 Comments

A cheap robotic hand developed by a company called Grabit offers something most of the other mechanical limbs we've seen before  don't: the ability to pick up objects using electrostatic attraction.

Even if you're not familiar with term, you've likely encountered the phenomenon at least once. Ever rubbed a balloon on your hair for fun, so you can stick it to the wall? How about getting plastic of bits of styrofoam stuck on your hand while handling a package? Yep, that's all thanks to attraction…


3D printer manufactures first vertebra prosthesis implanted in boy

Posted by GarageLab on October 24, 2014 at 1:00am 0 Comments

3D printers are now capable of manufacturing artificial bones. The Peking University in China, today announced a successful surgery for implantation of a vertebra titanium made ​​in three-dimensional impression. Who received the prosthesis was a boy of 12 years. The vertebra of the boy was taken by a malignant tumor.

The great advantage of 3D printing vertebra was using the same material used in conventional orthopedic prostheses, but the exact size needed to fit the patient's spine. Therefore, doctors did not need to use screws and orthopedic cement to mold and fix the implant in the spine, as required by the traditional procedure.

PhotoMath App Solves Math Equations at a Glance: Tutor or Cheater?

Posted by GarageLab on October 23, 2014 at 4:19am 0 Comments

Most mobile devices already have a built-in calculator, and you can also get advanced calculator apps. But microBLINK’s PhotoMath app uses optical image recognition on printed equations, so that you can get the solution without even having to input a number. Math teachers beware.
PhotoMath can solve simple arithmetic and algebra equations, including fractions, nth roots, exponentiation and linear equations. The app can also show you the step-by-step solution for the equation that it just solved, so at least it has some educational merit.

Scientists Create a Real Hoverboard

Posted by GarageLab on October 22, 2014 at 5:28am 0 Comments

Ever since the fictional hoverboards in 1989’s Back to the Future Part II children (and adults) have dreamed of scooting along six inches from the ground, safe from the rough terrain and water which would stop a normal skateboard in its tracks.

But now a Californian startup claims to have cracked it and developed a working prototype, although there are several catches: the battery only lasts seven minutes, it will only float over smooth metal and it costs $10,000.…


Meet the 1st smart suitcase

Posted by GarageLab on October 21, 2014 at 4:52am 0 Comments

The "smart" adjective seems to suit all kinds of products, including suitcases. The claiming to be the "first smart and connected suitcase" the world exists and is campaigning to raise money over the Internet.

Call BlueSmart, she presents a series of technological resources. The user connects the suitcase to a smartphone application to close and open without locks, find out the weight and location, and receive notifications if you leave the suitcase behind.

There is also a battery capable of recharging a smartphone six times and the bag has compartments that protect and facilitate access to gadgets. In the future be released until an app for smart watches for key controls stay on the wearer's wrist.…
