This Drone Is Armed with Roman Candles

Posted by GarageLab on January 27, 2015 at 11:12am 0 Comments

This terrifying video illustrates what happens when drones go in for the kill. This UAV has been armed with roman candles, which look every bit as scary as real bullets. It also looks super fun. As long as you are the one controlling the drone and not the poor sap getting hit with fire.

YouTuber Pierogram armed a quadcopter with lightweight fireworks on either side of the camera to capture “gun cam” video of this weaponized drone as it fires fireballs at a helpless victim on the ground. From the drone’s POV, it is some serious Apocalypse Now stuff.

It is basically a lot of shooting, mixed with a lot swearing and girly screams. That drone is a good shot too – hits the guy’s head a few times and never lets up.

Drops run alone maze

Posted by GarageLab on January 26, 2015 at 3:45am 0 Comments

Alcohol drops seem to have gained life - or at least behave as if they know what they are doing.
The movement is precise enough that the drop scroll through a maze to reach your target, then merging with it.
"The system itself is very simple, but it has a very sophisticated behavior," said Professor Martin Hanczyc, whose team had created drops of oil with chemical engine and liquid fuel.
Meanwhile the net beads move only in water, but the staff intends to develop the concept to deliver drugs to specific body parts and other applications.

How NASA Plans To Explore Mars With Microsoft's Holographic Goggles

Posted by GarageLab on January 22, 2015 at 5:00am 0 Comments

Halfway through Microsoft's promotional video for HoloLens, the company showed a clip of a scientist wearing the headset as he points out an area of interest on the surface of Mars. HoloLens, the video explained, will be used by NASA scientists to work "on" Mars by July of this year. 

Over the past year, JPL and Microsoft have been building a software called OnSight that's designed to let scientists carry out their work as though they were standing on the distant planet they're studying. Using HoloLens, of course. Imagine being able to put on a headset and walk around another planet. Or control a rover as if you were sitting in it. Or look out over the yawning rim of a martian canyon. That's exactly what OnSight…

Mouse Box hides a wireless PC inside a mouse

Posted by GarageLab on January 21, 2015 at 3:01am 0 Comments

This is Mouse Box, and as you can tell from the pair of USB 3.0 ports on the front of the render it’s not just another input device. There’s an entire PC hidden beneath that inconspicuous-looking shell. The Mouse Box team has opted for a quad-core ARM processor clocked at 1.4GHz to power the system. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity will come as standard, as will 128GB of internal storage.

To keep things as cordless as possible, Mouse Box will ship with a wireless HDMI receiver. The Mouse Box team also wants to create a mouse pad that packs an inductive charger so that you don’t need to plug it in just to replenish its batteries. Just use it and park it on your mouse pad, and when you need to leave the Mouse Box is already fully…

Automotive technology prevents transformers explode

Posted by GarageLab on January 20, 2015 at 4:19am 0 Comments

The same technology used to make the cars deform during an accident, to preserve the cabin and passenger integrity, is being used to prevent accidents with transformers.

Transformers are an essential part of the electrical distribution system, and are everywhere and can be seen on top of the posts almost every block.

The problem is that when something goes wrong, they can explode, not only interrupting the power supply, but also bringing certain damage and risk of fire.

When there is a short circuit in coils of the transformer - due to overload or wear and tear of equipment, for example - it forms an arc which induces the formation of gas and an increase in internal pressure.

Programmable DNA ‘smart glue’ could speed 3D-printed organ research

Posted by GarageLab on January 19, 2015 at 4:06am 0 Comments

Making synthetic organs is no longer just the stuff of science fiction, but in many cases the research is still quite primitive. Organs like bladders and ears are fairly homogenous — just one or two basic cell types laid out in a fairly simple physical configuration — and growing such a structure is fairly achievable by the standards of modern science. What’s more difficult is growing something like a liver, which incorporates many different cell types in a highly interdependent way, and arranged in a complex, highly detailed configuration. You need to grow a liver not just with the precise right sequence of hormones and growth factors, but on the correct physical substrate to allow a working final organ. A new breakthrough using DNA to provide the “glue” in a 3D…

Hershey Has a 3D Chocolate Printer

Posted by GarageLab on January 16, 2015 at 3:00am 0 Comments

Shown off at the recent CES 2015, the CocoJet 3D Printer is a reality. It is a collaboration between Hershey and 3D Systems. It is a printer that prints chocolate shapes.

It can print letters and shapes just like a regular 3D printer, but it uses sweet sweet chocolate as its medium. You can choose between dark, milk or white chocolate and use pre-programmed designs or confections of your own creation. It is not available to the masses just yet, but it probably won’t be long before it is.

Google detachable cell

Posted by GarageLab on January 15, 2015 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Google started a conference to bring together developers for Ara design, the modular smartphone inspired by the concept of Phonebloks, each piece can be freely modified by the user. The event marked the presentation of a new prototype and test expected to launch in Puerto Rico.

Google did not explain exactly why to choose specifically Puerto Rico for this test phase, but said the operator partners there will be OpenMobile and Claro.

This should happen by the end of the year, but it is not known exactly when. Until then, the company expects to have between 20 and 30 modules divided into 10 different categories.

NASA building robots to explore Earth’s volcanoes, but Mars is the goal

Posted by GarageLab on January 14, 2015 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Space research group still has its eyes on the prize. Heat, after all, is heat, and to a large extent innovations that work on Earth should be applicable most places in the universe. More to the point, basic geographic features on the Moon, Mars, and elsewhere likely work much as they do here on Earth, so why not do a little bit of homework before we roll a few billion dollars of technology into a darkened, explosive magma-pimple?

That’s the idea behind JPL's VolcanoBot initiative, which has actually been ongoing for some time now. The project is already at the point of version 2.0, making the machine smaller and more durable while allowing its sensor to swivel, and the researchers can now drive it via a live video feed. VolcanoBot applies these new abilities as…

Disney’s BeachBot robot draws massive pictures on the beach

Posted by GarageLab on January 13, 2015 at 3:47am 0 Comments

Disney knows a thing or two about putting a new spin on the classics. Usually it’s fairy tales, but this time they’ve built a souped-up turtle robot like the ones you may have used Logo to program as a wee geek.

The company’s Research arm in Zurich has created BeachBot, who fittingly enough, looks like a cartoonish version of an actual turtle. It’s about 60cm long and 40cm wide. Two rear wheels get it moving, while a single front one steers. BeachBot is also a sealed unit; that’s important, since its canvas is a vast expanse of sand.

On its backside is a metal rake with seven tines that can be individually deployed and retracted by a series of servo motors. That allows the robot to draw fine lines or broad swaths as wide as its body. Future versions may include patterned imprinters or even a kind of eraser that can wipe away…
