New 3-D Display Could Let Phones and Tablets Produce Holograms

A new kind of three-dimensional display developed at HP Labs plays hologram-like videos without the need for any moving parts or glasses. Videos displayed on the HP system hover above the screen, and viewers can walk around them and experience an image or video from as many 200 different viewpoints—like walking around a real object.

The screen is made by…

A Tiny Custom Table Saw

If you’re working with small parts, even the smallest table saw available at Home Depot or Lowes is generally overkill. For cutting up small pieces of wood, metal, and copper-clad board, a micro table saw is a great investment. They’re actually pretty inexpensive, but why just buy one when you…

Quadcopter Fleet Plugs Star Trek By Forming Starfleet Insignia In London Sky

The promotional event for the movie coincided with Saturday night’s Earth Hour, which was meant to encourage people to take one hour and to conserve electricity, suggesting that the folks behind it, while good at promoting things, might not be so great at getting the point of Earth Hour. Either that, or they’ve badly misunderstood the words “electricity” and…

HERB the Robot Separates Oreo Cookies

HERB prefers the cream over the cookie, even though he’s a robot. Watch HERB work his magic on some Oreos in the latest Oreo Separator video. The team at Carnegie Mellon had HERB try a few different methods before they found the right way to do it.

At one point he can be seen stabbing the cookies with a kitchen knife. Finally they settled…

MyIDKey Puts All of Passwords at the Tip Of Your Finger, Literally.

It’s better to be safe than be sorry when it comes to choosing a password. The problem isn’t whether you can come up with a challenging enough password, though. Rather, it’s whether or not you’ll be able to remember it, given you probably already have a number of other accounts and passwords to…

Finally, a Machine That Makes Cheap 3D Printer Filament.

If there’s one problem with the RepRap, it’s the cost of filament. Sure, there’s also the computationally difficult problem of slicing 3D models, but a 5 to 10 times markup on turning plastic pellets into filament is the biggest problem. It’s even a bigger problem than the problems of compatibility and interchangeable parts that comes with everyone forking a…

This Robotic Oreo Separator Uses a Hatchet to Remove the Creme

David Neevel doesn’t like the creme in the middle of Oreos, so he built a machine to remove it. Even though his stance on Oreo creme is horribly, tragically, and completely misguided you have to respect a guy who takes action to get what he wants, or to eliminate what he doesn’t want as the case may be. Neevel is a physicist from Portland who is the…
