Drone With Jumping Legs Will Revolutionize The Drone Industry

The mention of drones, two things came to mind: vertically take-off aircraft, often in the form of multi-rotor configuration (or in rare occasion, dual rotor, like a helicopter) or a fixed wing aircraft that pretty much designed to destroy. Both have its short falls. A multi-rotor aircraft sacrifices speed and payload for convenient take-off and landing, while a fixed wing has to put up with need for runways for speed and heavier payload. Many drone makers knew this and while some stick to their guns, some opted to go the hybrid route with a VTOL setup. Continue reading Drone With Jumping Legs Will Revolutionize The Drone Industry

Some China Cities Are Using Rocket Launchers To Fight High-rise Fires

Net Guard UAV Concept proposed a novel way of saving people trapped in a high-rise fire, but it did not address the still raging fire that could potentially bring the building down, causing an even more catastrophic event. Aerones Drone seems to have that covered, but alas, it is limited by the length of the hose and tether. While the rest of the world seems to be happy to rely on the existing mitigation systems, such as sprinkle, fire curtain and whatnot, a Chinese company has adapted military tech to develop a radical, new kind of high-rise fire-fighting system.

3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive

3D printed titanium is a luxury that’s probably reserved for companies like Bugatti. Since after VW’s Bugatti revealed the world’s first 3D printed titanium brake caliper, it has went on and got the innovative brake caliper tested. The test vindicated the power of titanium when under the duress of extreme heat which, if you think of it, makes absolute sense because of intense heat generated when stopping one of the world’s fastest cars, but on a skateboard, specifically the trucks? Well, lets just say it is way an overkill for a significantly less stressful application. Continue reading 3D Printed Titanium Skateboard Truck Is A Possibly That’s Very Expensive

Nissan Invisible-To-Visible Tech Gives You See-thru Vision When Driving

If you think “transparent” hood and “transparent” A pillar were crazy concepts, wait till you see what Nissan has installed for the future of motoring. The Japanese automaker has taken to the CES 2019 to present a futuristic concept technology called Invisible-to-Visible (I2V). So what exactly is I2V? In simple terms, it is a technology that lets you see beyond what your vision cannot see, like for examples, seeing a car ahead of you around the bend, or a motorcycle speeding to the join the highway but blocked by a semi truck. With I2V, you will be able to ‘see’ those vehicles or people as virtual objects on a special eyewear you wear when you drive.

LG To Bring Updated “Wearable Robot” CLOi SuitBot To CES 2019

The mention of robots, one would imagine human-like biped machines, but the LG CLOi SuitBot is not that. In fact, it looks more like a partial exoskeleton. Actually, it is an exoskeleton suit. Notwithstanding the obvious, LG is calling it a robot, a wearable one that it. Whatever you call it, it has all but one purpose: prevent injury to the wearer’s back. First revealed in August 2018 at IFA, the LG CLOi SuitBot has since been updated with a lot less part. Continue reading LG To Bring Updated “Wearable Robot” CLOi SuitBot To CES 2019

Believe It Or Not, These ‘People’ You See Here Are Generated By AI

If you have not heard, we are now living in a world where what-you-see-may-not-be-what-you-get (WYSMNBWYG). Case-in-point: the photo you see here. The people you see in the above image are not real people. I repeat. They are NOT real people. They were generated by artificial intelligence, or in technical terms, generated by a Style-based Generator Architecture for Generative Adversarial Networks. How this creepy AI tech works is basically pulling the features of several human faces and fuse them together to create images of people who do not exists.

Bladeless Drone Is Impressive, But Not Quite Bladeless As It Says It Is

One drone enthusiast/aspiring aerospace engineer by the name of Stefano Rivellini claims that he has built the “world’s first bladeless drone.” But before you get excited, this ain’t no Dyson’s bladeless technology which the British company has used in its hairdryer and various fans; in fact, it is not quite bladeless as it says it is. Instead of the usual exposed rotor blades, Rivellini uses four ducted fans buried inside carbon fiber tube ducting. Here’s the official description: Continue reading Bladeless Drone Is Impressive, But Not Quite Bladeless As It Says It Is
