Amazon holds contest to build humanity’s robot replacements

Posted by GarageLab on March 27, 2015 at 7:25am 0 Comments

The Amazon orders of the future won’t be fulfilled by humans in warehouses, they’ll be carried out by fleets of robots. And our duty is clear: to build and maintain those robots. Fortunately, if workers must be tasked with manufacturing the very machines putting them all out of work, at least it’ll be entertaining to watch.

The online retail giant is holding a contest to find the next-generation of robots capable of doing the company’s bidding faster than you ever could.

The Amazon Picking Challenge promises $25,000 to the team capable of building the best robot that can not only sort items quickly, but also do so without dropping or crushing more fragile goods, like a box of crayons or a gallon of precious Tuscan Whole Milk. That means roboticists must program…

Birdly Uses the Oculus Rift So That You Can Be the Bird

Posted by GarageLab on March 25, 2015 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Mankind has always dreamed about experiencing flight like the birds do. We’ve come a long way, but flying planes, even hang gliding, still doesn’t capture what it is like to actually be the bird. Well, Birdly gets us several steps (er, flaps) closer.

Birdly is a full-body simulator developed by the Institute for Design Research at the Zürich University of the Arts. The idea is to recreate the flight of the red kite, a large bird of prey. It uses a combination of an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, sonic feedback, and a fan that simulates the wind while you are soaring where eagles dare.

US Navy is testing an electromagnetic catapult to launch planes from aircraft carriers

Posted by GarageLab on March 24, 2015 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

For almost as long as aircraft carriers have existed, they’ve been equipped with steam-powered catapults to help fighters and bombers get airborne. That’s a remarkably old-fashioned technology when you’re launching stealth fighters that cost upwards of $20 million each.

The US Navy is now testing a replacement system called the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) aboard the new USS Gerald R. Ford. It uses a burst of electromagnetic energy to launch planes much more smoothly and efficiently than the old steam catapults. Aircraft carriers range from big to gigantic as far as ships go, but the runways simply aren’t long enough for most planes to generate sufficient lift before they tumble off into the water. So, you need something to coax planes into the air a little faster, but…

These Colorful Liquid Droplets Chase Each Other Like Living Organisms

Posted by GarageLab on March 23, 2015 at 6:36am 0 Comments

Scientists at Stanford University were at first perplexed by the strange behavior they observed when droplets of food coloring consisting of PG and water were placed on glass. When two droplets of the same PG concentration are placed near one another, they coalesce. However, when droplets of differing concentrations are neighbors, they get close but never join. Sometimes they even chase one each other. What's happening?!

To find out, the researchers placed tiny tracer beads within droplets. The liquid inside the droplets, they discovered, was flowing in an organized manner, which could be explained by the evaporation of water-the more volatile of the two liquids. As each droplet evaporates, it produces a tiny sphere of humidity. This humidity bubble can, in turn, disrupt the evaporative process of neighboring bubbles,…

US allows Amazon to test drones

Posted by GarageLab on March 20, 2015 at 4:58am 0 Comments

The Federal Aviation Administration statement said it issued "an experimental airworthiness certificate" to Amazon Logistics so it can test its unmanned aircraft design.

The certificate allows Amazon to conduct flights at 400 feet (122 meters) or below during daylight hours, with the drone "within visual line-of-sight of the pilot and observer."

The person controlling the drone must have at least a private pilot's certificate and medical certification, the FAA said.

Under the proposed rules, the person controlling a drone would be considered an "operator" and would be required to pass an aeronautical knowledge test and obtain an FAA certificate.

Amazon must provide monthly data to the FAA on the number of flights conducted and report any problems stemming from the…

Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar

Posted by GarageLab on March 19, 2015 at 1:25pm 0 Comments

Whether you want to learn how to play guitar, or just want to jam wherever you go, this gadget is an awesome way to add some guitar to your day, without having to carry around a full-size instrument or worry about keeping it tuned.
The Jamstik Smart Guitar connects wirelessly to your iPad, iPhone or Mac OS X computer, and lets you play music with a real string and fret interface. It’s ultra portable, and works as a MIDI controller for apps like JamTutor (for learning music), JamMix (for creating tracks) and popular music apps like GarageBand as well.

Nano-earthquakes used to make better solar cells and cameras

Posted by GarageLab on March 18, 2015 at 5:24am 0 Comments

A team of Australian researchers are quite literally shaking up the world of technology. They’ve discovered a way to improve electronics using what they call “nano-earthquakes.”

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology scientists are taking advantage of surface acoustic waves, a phenomenon that was first described 130 years ago. SAWs are already utilized in a number of different ways in our gadgets — as noise and waveguide filters,…

Iron Man Delivers Kid’s Robotic Arm: Proof that Tony Stark Has a Heart

Posted by GarageLab on March 16, 2015 at 5:12am 0 Comments

Alex Pring now has one heck of a story to tell his friends. Not only did the 7-year old meet Iron Man, the Avenger met him to deliver his robotic arm. Alex was born with a partially formed right arm, but now he has the opportunity to upgrade it and make it look like all sorts of things. And Robert Downey Jr. is merely the witty icing on this cake.

If you’re wondering why Alex doesn’t seem blown away by RDJ’s gift, it’s probably because Alex was already using an older version of the arm. That’s where the real heroes come in. Alex’s arms – including the special Iron Man-themed one – were developed by Albert Manero and his colleagues at Limbitless Solutions. Alex’s mom got in touch with Alex through E-NABLE – an organization that makes low-cost 3D printed mechanical arms – but Albert wanted to give the kid something better than a mechanical…

Stompz Foot-mounted Motion Controller

Posted by GarageLab on March 13, 2015 at 5:11am 0 Comments

We may quickly be solving how to show virtual reality effectively, but we’re still figuring out how to move in it. We’ve seen pseudo-treadmills and full sets of motion sensors, but Stompz claims its eponymous motion controllers are all we need to move around in virtual spaces.

Each Stompz controller has a 9-axis motion sensor. It communicates with a USB control unit over Bluetooth, allowing it to work not just with virtual reality headsets and personal computers but with mobile devices as well. The best part? Apparently the controller doesn’t discriminate between your hands and feet, so you can strap them on your hands as well. It will have a complementary program for tweaking its sensitivity and mapping keys or buttons to your movements.
