Watch origami come to life through the magic of magnets and dance

Posted by GarageLab on March 5, 2015 at 10:16am 0 Comments

When talking about just how magic magnets can be, it’s all too easy to make an Insane Clown Posse joke. However, this latest example of the cool tricks that are possible thanks to magnetism is much too classy for such a vulgar comparison. Watch as this Japanese hardware hacker brings origami cranes to life like a funky Dr. Frankenstein through the power of magnets.

First-Ever Photo Of Light Captured Behaving As Both Wave And Particle

Posted by GarageLab on March 4, 2015 at 5:30am 0 Comments

Researchers have recently captured the first ever photograph of light behaving as both a wave and a particle.

When UV light hits a metal surface, it causes an emission of electrons. Albert Einstein explained this "photoelectric" effect by proposing that light - thought to only be a wave, was also a stream of particles. Even though a variety of experiments have successfully observed both the particle- and wave-like behaviors of light, they have never been able to observe both at the same time.

A research team led by Fabrizio Carbone at EPFL has now carried out an experiment with a clever twist: using electrons to image light. The researchers have captured, for the first time ever, a single snapshot of light behaving simultaneously as both a wave and a stream of particles…

Fingerprint tech from Qualcomm uses ultrasonic sound waves

Posted by GarageLab on March 3, 2015 at 4:44am 0 Comments

This is a security solution from Qualcomm Technologies (a subsidiary of Qualcomm) and it is based on ultrasonic technology. (Ars Technica said on Monday it was the same tech that is used in ultrasonic medical imaging, just smaller.) The Qualcomm approach uses ultrasonic sound waves to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. In doing so it captures three-dimensional details that are not possible to catch with present capacitive touch based fingerprint technologies. The tech enables a highly detailed surface map of the fingerprint. Also, it can power through common contaminants on the finger such as sweat, hand lotions and condensation.

The tech uses the FIDO Alliance protocol integrated in Snapdragon processors. This refers to integration with the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online)…

Three men receive mind-controlled bionic hands

Posted by GarageLab on March 2, 2015 at 5:00am 0 Comments

Three men have been equipped with bionic hands which they control with their minds, allowing them to rediscover everyday tasks like picking up a ball or pouring water from a jug.

In a Lancet study released Wednesday, Aszmann and his colleagues said the procedure combines the transfer of nerve and muscle, amputation of the injured hand and replacement with an advanced robotic prosthesis. The new hand uses sensors that respond to electric impulses in the muscles.

Stanford’s cheap nanomaterial filter could solve the air pollution problem

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

The rapidly increasing industrialization in many parts of the world comes with economic benefits, but also serious long-term health and environmental consequences. Stanford professor Yi Cui had become increasingly concerned about the air quality in Beijing during his frequent visits in recent years, so he set to work developing a potential solution. His materials science lab mostly deals with battery technology, but the team has succeeded in creating a new type of high-efficiency filter that removes harmful particulates from the air.

Blub Uno Clock Displays Time with One Nixie Tube

Posted by GarageLab on February 26, 2015 at 4:52am 0 Comments

We’ve seen our share of Nixie tube clocks, but the Blub Uno is different. This is a clock that displays time with just a single Nixie tube. One tube, many possibilities.  It will display the time as a sequence of numbers, but that’s not all it can do. This clock can show the temperature and date too, and it can be used as an alarm. I’m not sure if I prefer one tube or four. They are both pretty cool, but this one takes up less space. If you like this one-tube wonder.

 The individual glowing numbers, housed in a glass cylinder, are a beautiful alternative to the common digital and analogue displays we’re all used to seeing. To complement the…

DIY 3D Printer Suitcase: Print in a Box

Posted by GarageLab on February 24, 2015 at 5:00am 0 Comments

It may not be as cool as Iron Man’s transforming briefcase armor, but Jean-Luc Guillemette’s Case-Rap is still a cutting edge suitcase. This portable 3D printer is ready to print within seconds of unfolding. 

Jean-Luc based the Case-Rap on the Mendel 90, one of the many spinoffs of the RepRap 3D printer. The version you see here has an MDF case, but Jean-Luc says he’ll use Russian plywood for succeeding versions to save on weight and because he doesn’t find the MDF’s look appealing. It took him a total of 12 hours and about $280 (USD) to make the Case-Rap.

Street Fighter Played with Pianos: Sound Fighter

Posted by GarageLab on February 23, 2015 at 4:00am 0 Comments

Back in 2014 we saw an piano that was turned into a controller for Tekken. The Sound Fighter project had a similar goal – play Street Fighter Alpha 3 on pianos. But whereas the Tekken hack simply mapped controller buttons to piano keys, Sound Fighter mapped certain moves to chords.

Software engineers Cyril and Eric of Foobarflies built the musical arcade machine. Each Sound Fighter piano has 20 piezoelectric sensors, a Raspberry Pi, an Arduino Uno and custom PCBs mediating the input from the sensors. Cyril and Eric chose to use a PlayStation 2 for Sound Fighter because they saw a number of PS2 hacks that were similar to what they wanted to…

Test with LIFI , substitute to WiFi , reaches transfer of 150 Mb/s

Posted by GarageLab on February 20, 2015 at 3:30am 0 Comments

LIFI concept is not exactly new. For some time investigators attempting to use systems that enable the light to transfer data, instead of radio waves used by WiFi.

And scholars have started to produce some interesting results for this technology. One of the most recent reports, told the Xinhua News, is a survey prepared by Chi Nan, a professor of information technology at Fudan University, located in Shanghai, China.

Nan and his team managed to get four computers remain connected to the web via a LED 1 watt lamp, reaching transfer rates of up to 150 megabits per second.

For the researcher, the LIFI is much more efficient than the wireless standard that currently use - first because the system under development would not need millions of antennas, which are expensive and take up a lot of space, around the world.
