Forget about those inflatable dinosaur costumes. If you really want to be convincing as a dinosaur and looks menacing at the same time, you need to do what Dutch engineering student Esmée Kramer did: Projector Raptor: A Mechanical Dinosaur Costume.
Airbags serve to protect occupants from potentially deadly impacts on most parts of the vehicle’s interior. But what about impact between say, the driver and the passenger? Well, for that, Hyundai Motor Group will have you and your passenger covered in its future cars.
You may remember Italian design firm CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati for its Scribit wall-crawling scribbling robot, among the many other pretty mind-blowing stuff. Well, they have made headlines again, this time for a project it has done for global energy exploration company, ENI.
HiSilicon, Huawei’s chip-making arm, has taken to IFA 2019 in Berlin, Germany, to unveil its next-generation System on Chip (Soc), the Kirin 990 Series which is offered in two flavors: a ‘standard’ version and a 5G variant. The latter is staking claim as the world’s first flagship 5G SoC powered with 7 nm+ EUV. It […]
Exoskeleton suit in real life is not even remotely close to fantasy tech of Iron Man, but rather, it is something like the Vest EXoskeleton (VEX), a wearable robot of sort developed by Hyundai Motor Group. That’s right. In addition to developing groundbreaking automobile tech like solar car roof, smartphone entry and more, the South […]
So, you think mobile photography will never surpass or even on par with DSLR imaging prowess? Well, think again. Samsung has just announced a break through in mobile imaging with the industry’s first 108 megapixel image sensor for smartphone. One-hundred-and-eight! Holy cow. That’s a resolution that is equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera. […]

Nike Joyride is a Nike-only, proprietary cushioning system involving thousands of TPE beads. It kind of feels like bean bag, except that the […]
Swedish EV manufacturer NEVS-owned British in-wheel motor technology company Protean Electric has introduced a revolutionary drive/steering module called Protean 360+ that will make parallel parking haters clamoring for it. Protean 360+ is 360-degree steering technology that pretty much is what it says it is and then some. It is an advanced electric drive ‘corner module’ […]
Whoever invented bolas must be proud. Why? Because, the invention not survived to this day, but has gotten a high-tech twist by the way of BolaWrap. BolaWrap is a non-lethal restraining device. It is not Taser, if that’s what you are thinking. In any case, Taser is not always non-lethal, if history has taught us […]
I am not going lie. I just can’t wrap my head around the science behind how IHMC made Boston Dynamics’ Atlas and NASA Valkyrie robots navigate over a rough terrain. The development was, btw, a response to DARPA Robotics Challenge that calls for improvements in robotics technology for disaster relief operations. DARPA Robotics Challenge was […]
