A research team led by Shree K. Nayar, T.C. Chang Professor of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering, has invented a prototype video camera that is the first to be fully self-powered—it can produce an image each second, indefinitely, of a well-lit indoor scene. They designed a pixel that can…Continue

The Green Brain Project is located in Sheffield, England, and it has one key focus: to simulate a functioning honeybee brain in software. Using a mix of neuroscience modeling, decision theory, parallel computing, and robotics, they are working towards that goal. So far, they’ve got the vision and olfactory (sensory) systems working in basic form,…Continue

HemaImaging it’s working on the HemaVision, a standalone thermal imager that will be able to give you measurements in real-time and tell you if that’s within normal parameters.
The HemaVision has an 82×62 thermal sensor, a 5MP CMOS sensor, a 320×240 touchscreen, an SD card slot, a Wi-Fi…
Creating truly flexible electronics requires applying super-thin layers of conducting materials to already bendable materials-but doing so accurately is difficult. Now, a new form of inkjet printing can allow scientists to deposit thin layers of liquid metal into neat circuits.

The OM/ONE is a truly unique take on the Bluetooth speaker. This wireless speaker is certainly one of the coolest looking speakers you’ll ever see. Not only does the portable OM/ONE speaker orb float above its base when it’s in your home, you can grab it out of the air and take it with you. A built-in lithium ion battery will keep it…Continue

I assumed to you know about ESP8266 Wi-Fi module(inexpensive compared to other wifi modules and it has a MCU. For these reasons, it is motivation on IoT products for me) and you have an one. I am new on ESP8266 and I have a Intel Galileo Gen1 and no USB – TTL converter or an Arduino. So I need to communicate with ESP8266 via Intel Galileo but SoftwareSerial library which is used for…Continue

Drones are becoming an ever larger part of the military, but their use has mainly been restricted to the skies. The US Navy has been experimenting, though, and we could soon see a flying drone that also doubles as a submarine.
The Naval Research Laboratory has been working on just such a drone in…

Back in June 2013 I had an idea to set up a group here on Garage Lab for PIC users. It didn't happen. Why?
Well, I couldn't find an easy, economic way to show someone, anyone, how to use them because there was no decent, affordable hardware that was flexible enough. Sure Microchip have plenty of Dev Kits, but like most kits you can get from the OEM they are jam packed full of clever 'other bits' that you don't want or need. But worse still, starting a new project was at best tricky.…Continue

Graphene continues to be held up as a wonder material set to revolutionize many areas of tech in the future. However, even something as game-changing as graphene has to start small, and its first major commercial success looks set to be a light bulb.
In recent years we’ve been moving to ever more efficient lighting. Where as incandescent bulbs used to…

Moving away from fossil fuels and towards green energy generation is becoming increasingly important, not just because fossil fuels will eventually run out, but the emissions they produce are choking the atmosphere. That’s why we are seeing huge solar farms being built, but China is considering a much more ambitious project. Chinese scientists want…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
