‘Eye Spy’, A Drone’s Eye View of Sydney, Australia

Posted by GarageLab on April 15, 2014 at 6:18am 0 Comments

“Eye Spy” is a series of short films created by production companies Ambience and Cavort that examine the lighting and architecture of various cities via ariel footage shot using a drone, including, most recently, a tour of Sydney, Australia. Past videos from the series include New York City and San Diego, with future episodes taking to skies above Melbourne, Chicago, Belgrade and Edinburgh.

A Radio-Controlled X-Wing From ‘Star Wars’ Made Out of PVC Pipe

Posted by GarageLab on April 11, 2014 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

Designer Rodger Cleye made a five-foot-long radio-controlled X-wing starfighter from Star Wars out of what is mostly PVC pipe and decorative tape. The model uses three 850W motors attached to 12″ propellers to achieve flight.

Create Your Own J.A.R.V.I.S. Using Jasper

Posted by GarageLab on April 9, 2014 at 6:37am 0 Comments

Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. needs no introduction. With [Shubhro's] and [Charlie's] recent release of Jasper, an always on voice-controlled development platform for the Raspberry Pi, you too can start making your own J.A.R.V.I.S..

Both [Shubhro] and [Charlie] are undergraduate students at Princeton University, and decided to make their voice-controlled project open-source (code is available on GitHub). Jasper is build on inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware, making it very simple to get started. All you really need is an internet connected Raspberry Pi with a microphone and speaker. Simply install Jasper, and get started using the built in functionality that allows you to…

Innovative Dad Pulls Son’s Baby Tooth Using Flying Drone

Posted by GarageLab on April 8, 2014 at 1:50pm 0 Comments

Apparently the “slamming door” method was just too boring for Malcolm Swan and his brave son, Adam. Instead, the pair removed Adam’s baby tooth the good old fashioned way—by tying it to a DJI Phantom Quadcopter and then letting the drone rip. Sadly, Adam’s tooth was never recovered, but I think the Tooth Fairy will still pay up.

Festo's BionicKangaroo gets the hop on energy-efficiency

Posted by GarageLab on April 7, 2014 at 6:56am 0 Comments

The BionicKangaroo features pneumatic actuators that provide the jumping power and at the same time act as shock absorbers on landing. The necessary compressed air is supplied either from a small compressor or from a high pressure storage device on board. Electric motors are used for maintaining balance and controlling the kangaroo’s position with high accuracy, e.g. optimizing the tail and hip movements. All electric components rely on energy from rechargeable lithium polymer batteries.

Using a 3D Printer to Draw Tattoos: InkD

Posted by GarageLab on April 4, 2014 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

 

It’s one thing to allow a professional tattoo artist to ink your arm. It’s another thing altogether to allow a 3D printer to do it. But that’s exactly what a team of designers in Paris recently did.
By hacking together a custom tattoo gun attachment for a MakerBot 3D printer, they were able to draw a computer-generated tattoo on a man’s arm. As you can see in the video below, the tattoo is very rudimentary (a simple circle), but I’m assuming that’s because it would be pretty difficult to compensate for small movements in the recipient’s arm like a human tattoo artist can do.

Dispensing Solder Paste With A 3D Printer

Posted by GarageLab on April 3, 2014 at 5:53am 0 Comments

There’s a strange middle ground in PCB production when it comes to making a few boards. Dispensing solder paste onto one board is easy enough with a syringe or toothpick, but when pasting up even a handful of boards, this method gets tiresome. Solder paste stencils speed up the process when you’re doing dozens or hundreds of boards, but making a stencil for just a few boards is a waste. The solution for this strange middle ground is, of course, to retrofit a 3D printer to dispense solder paste.

This project was a collaboration between [Jake] and [hzeller] to transform KiCAD files to G Code for dispensing solder paste directly onto a board. The machine they used was a Type A Machines printer with a solder paste dispenser in…

Commute-Case: It’s a Briefcase, It’s a Scooter

Posted by GarageLab on April 1, 2014 at 7:40am 0 Comments

It’s a compact electric scooter that has mobility in mind. Not just when you’re on it, but also when you’re not using it as well. The sleek design allows you to fold the entire thing up into a briefcase of sorts when you’re keen on walking or for storage. You can also easily convert it into a trolley as well.



The Commute-Case can do up to 12.5mph and weighs just 27 pounds with a weight capacity of 275 pounds. Range is up to 25 miles, and it takes as little as an hour for a full recharge. It’s normally priced at $5,990(USD) but Green Energy Motors is currently offering pre-order reservations at half the price.

The Kyub: a Three-Dimensional Feather Touch MIDI Keyboard

Posted by GarageLab on March 31, 2014 at 7:43am 0 Comments

“The Kyub is a maker friendly, open source MIDI keyboard that provides a new window to musical performance. Capacitive sensing gives the Kyub extremely sensitive action and an internal accelerometer allows the volume of each note to be precisely controlled for versatile musical expression. You can attach multiple Kyubs to a computer synthesizer or digital audio workstation for solo play, jamming with friends, or composition. A computer with a synthesizer program is required to make music,  Almost any computer-based synthesizer can be used–we provide information on connecting the Kyub to the free demo version of Propellerhead Reason which provides access to hundreds of high quality sounds.”
