Sikorsky X2 - the fastest helicopter in the world

0 comments
Sikorsky video of the Sep. 15, 2010 test flight during which its X2 Technology coaxial-rotor helicopter demonstrator achieved its 250kt speed goal. Conventional helicopters cruise at around 150kt. The X2 reached 260kt in a shallow dive as is expected to exceed 250kt in level flight once a sail fairing is fitted between the upper and lower rotors to reduce drag further.



X2 uses a single T800 engine to power both the rotors and the tail-mounted variable-pitch propeller, which provides forward thrust to enable the high speed. Other technologies include fly-by-wire flight controls and active vibration control. As the video opens you see a full-scale mockup of Sikorsky's proposed X2 Light Tactical Helicopter in the hang

Monitoring your health with your mobile phone

0 comments



Imec and Holst Centre, together with TASS software professionals have developed a mobile heart monitoring system that allows to view your electrocardiogram on an Android mobile phone. The innovation is a low-power interface that transmits signals from a wireless ECG (electrocardiogram or heart monitoring)-sensor system to an android mobile phone. With this interface, imec, Holst Centre and TASS are the first to demonstrate a complete Body Area Network (BAN) connected to a mobile phone enabling reliable long-term ambulatory monitoring of various health parameters such as cardiac performance (ECG), brain activity (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), etc. The system will be demonstrated at the Wireless Health Conference in San Diego (US, October 5-7).

The camera will tell the state of health

You can check a person's vital signs — pulse, respiration and blood pressure — manually or by attaching sensors to the body. But a student in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program is working on a system that could measure these health indicators just by putting a person in front of a low-cost camera such as a laptop computer's built-in webcam.

Longreach Buoyancy Deployment System

0 comments
Rescue bazooka
An Australian entry in the international 2010 James Dyson Award, 'LONGREACH Buoyancy Deployment System' is a concept from university student Samuel Adeloju which provides a man-portable system for rapid conveyance of temporary, water-activated buoyancy devices to a drowning victims location. Constructed from hydrophobic or rapidly expanding foam, it is designed to allow a victim to remain buoyant while rescue personnel prepare the appropriate response to the situation.

Toshiba Regza GL1 3D preview: no frills, no glasses - Video

0 comments
It's with some surprise that we pen, finger to key to screen, praise for a 3D display -- particularly one that is glasses-free (the staff is still a bit divided, for example, on Nintendo's 3DS screen). But here we go. Toshiba's 20-inch Regza 20GL1 3D set was on hand at CEATEC, and it's actually a set we could see ourselves comfortably watching for a given span of time. Viewing angles are none too shabby, the refresh rate doesn't visibly distract or inherently cause headaches, and at 720p, you can actually get an enjoyable image. The 56-inch concept conjured up a worthy picture as well, but then again, it's a prototype with no immediate purpose other than causing attendee awe at this point. If we had to fault it, we'd say that the viewing angles where you see two distinct perspectives (see the picture above for an example) are too wide, which means you'd have to be really careful about where you sit on the couch if you were to buy something like this for your den.



Also on hand was a notebook, which at this point just didn't cut it. Perhaps it's just too early in development, but what was saw had minimal depth and an unfortunately low resolution / perceived refresh rate; when the video loop it was playing switched to the Windows 7 UI, it looked grainy and extremely difficult to read -- undoubtedly the side effect of trying to use a display designed for permanent 3D use in 2D mode.

That leaves us to talk about 12-inch 12GL1, and what can we express other than disappointment? The 466 x 350 resolution (yes, that's less than standard definition) is just awful, you can lose the 3D effect moving marginally to the left or right, depth is not pronounced, and medium-to-fast pace footage just doesn't work. For all the warm-yet-cautious approval we give to the 20GL1, its little brother is quite the black sheep, especially at ¥120,000 ($1,443). Not that ¥240,000 for 20 inches is a bargain, but at least you're getting a quality screen... and for once, you don't actually need additional eyewear to enjoy it. Decidedly two-dimensional snapshots and video taken from an almost pitch-black showroom

HTC HD7 first hands-on! [HD]

0 comments


HTC may have stemmed the flood of HD7 activity, but details about the 4.3-inch Windows Phone 7 device keep leaking out. Today, an O2 Germany tipster blew off most of the remaining doors. We've got what appears to be a full spec sheet confirming a 1GHz processor, 8GB of storage and 5 megapixel camera but also detailing internal memory, a full compliment of sensors, quad-band radio frequencies, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and more. There's also few pictures sizing up the HD7 alongside a Galaxy S, a training slide for the hopefully-more-than-a-marketing-buzzword "Dolby Mobile Sound," and for what we believe is the very first time, a cameo appearance on video. Our tipster says it'll launch in Germany in just two weeks at €559 (about $770) or €79 ($109) on a two-year contract.

Outdoor cinema Nokia - world's biggest cinema screen

Residents of the city district of RosengÄrd, Sweden were treated to a movie night they will never forget, powered by a Nokia N8 through it's HDMI port in stunning high-definition.

About 1,500 people turned up to see "Prince of Persia" and it's estimated that another 1,000 local people simply watched it from their apartments or balconies.

The previous world record was held by Pinewood Studios in Middlesex, Great Britain, with a cinema screen measuring 73.1 metres wide and 18.3 metres high and with a total area of 1,338 square metres.

Samsung Wave II with 3.7-inch Super-Clear LCD

0 comments
Samsung has unveiled a new Wave handset today – the Wave II. They already have the Wave 2 (Wave 525) but this is Wave II (S8530), the successor of original Wave. The new Wave II has got a subtle revamp and adopts a larger screen – a 3.7-inch one (800×480) but now comes with a Super clear LCD (we assume it’s the same as Super TFT) as compared to original Wave’s 3.3-inch Super AMOLED.

The Wave II has also got a bump on the software side and now brings some improvements like the inclusiion of T9 input method Trace. Think of it as bada’s version of Swype.

The Levytator - New escalator

2010-10-01 0 comments


The Levytator is the world's first escalator capable of following freeform curves. It has been developed by Jack Levy, an Emeritus Professor of Mechanical Engineering at City University London.

This video shows a working model and computer simulations.

Unlike traditional escalator designs, where redundant steps move underneath those in use, the Levytator uses a continuous loop of curved modules, so the cost per usable step is reduced. The steps can follow any path upwards, flatten and straighten out, and descend once more, all with passengers on board.

With the Levytator, architects are able to create escalators in whatever shape they want -- as a ride around a theme park or on top of an existing staircase, for example.

The Levytator has been patented in the UK, Europe, the USA and China, and City University London is now seeking partnerships with architects and manufacturers to take this exciting innovation to market.
