RAONHAJE EGO helps anyone to explore undersea easily and conveniently. You don't even need to know how to swim. There are no complicated control or operation of the boat. Anyone can easily control and operate RAONHAJE EGO. You can also enjoy fantastical view under the sea comfortably with your family or sweetheart together. You can also take pictures freely against view under the sea or photograph organisms under the sea. EGO is perfectly comfortable and absolutely safe. It is not airtight as submarine. And also, you can escape from the boat very fast and easy in emergency situation, and this is the biggest advantage comparing with submarine.
If you have a sufficient knowledge of C-style programming, love tinkering around with gyros, IR ports, sensors and have a love for robots, then the Bioloid is the robo-buddy you're looking for. It dances, it can sort of flip backwards and knows how to do robo-tuts. We doubt your Robosapien can do any of those.
While at CES 2011 Kate Abraham gets a chance to talk with Jeff Crystal of Voltaic Systems. On display at the show were the Voltaic Systems Spark Solar Tablet Case and the Voltaic Systems Generator Solar Laptop Charger, which can carry tablets and laptops respectively and charge them with solar power.
This is a demonstration of the new NXTBee sensors from Dexter Industries. In this video we control a Lego Mindstorms NXT car with the xbee sensors. The car can go up to 300 feet (100 meters) a real improvement over the 30 feet offered by the NXT's bluetooth.
Samsung Galaxy S 2 the successor of Samsung Galaxy S cellphone can get launched at ht Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The device powered with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and also features 4.3 inch Super Amoled Plus screen.
As per the rumors the new model can come with a dual core application processor inside.
Samsung Galaxy S 2 should arrive with an 8 megapixel photo snapper on the back, with LED flash and HD video recording capabilities. And 1.3 megapixel front camera for video calling.
This phone also have 3.5mm head phone jack, NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities, and microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32 GB of additional storage space.
New Galaxy Tab 2 tablet will have a 10.1-inch display supporting 1280x800 pixel resolution. Joining the new family of Android 3.0 running tablets, Galaxy Tab 2 is expected to pack a dual-core 1GHz processor - Exynos or Orion. At the back of the tablet rests the 8 megapixel camera capable of full 1080p HD video recording and playback. See Video
This is the curved (!) screen in our reality center of the University of Groningen. We just finished building our own touch detection for it. We used six Optitrack v120 slim camera's which have a good sensitivity for infrared light. We used 16 cheap infrared emitters (the kind used for security systems) with a total of 1000 LED's.
The touch detection software runs on three old computers each with two camera's connected. One extra computer combines the output from the detection computers and send event data to our main visualization system. This way we have (even using the old computers) enough processing power to be able to run the detection software at 60Hz and with a latency between 30 ms and 50 ms. It can detect without any problem 100 different touches at any time (more is possible, but it becomes slower)
We used a modified version of Community Core Vision (CCV) 1.4 (nuigroup.com) (modified so it can do two camera's on one computer). The communication protocol is preferable TUIO (tuio.org) and we did install Multi-touch Vista (multitouchvista.codeplex.com), which translates TUIO events to WM_TOUCH events for windows 7.
The curved screen itself is consist of a 3 mm dark acrylic layer, coated with a diffuser on the front. Illumination is from behind using six full hd projectors. The cameras and the ir-leds are also located behind the screen.
The Zero S has instant torque and power from a standstill, plus smooth acceleration as you race out of turns—all without ever needing to stop at a gas station. Developed to aggressively take on urban environments and encourage the occasional detour, the Zero S electric motorcycle integrates revolutionary technology with innovative motorcycle design. Built from the ground up using Zero Motorcycles' proprietary Z‐Force power pack and aircraft grade alloy frame, the Zero S features an industry leading power‐to‐weight ratio that increases its range and maneuverability. At 270lbs, the Zero S has a range of up to 50 miles and a top speed of 67 MPH. The Zero S is designed for optimal performance off the line, in sharp turns and while navigating obstacles. Instant acceleration and lightweight design enable the Zero S to take on any city street, hill or obstacle, combining exhilaration
Facial motion test of Affetto, which is an child robot that is currently under development in emergent robotics laboratory at Osaka university for simulating infant cognitive development. Its face is created realistically so as to be treated as a human being by human caregivers, not as a robot.
As the Motorola Xoom release date rapidly approaches, the world is anxiously waiting for news on Android 3.0 Honeycomb smartphones. Look no further than the Motorola Bee concept, the world’s first Honeycomb smartphone.
Galileo thermometer shows 20 degrees in 20 seconds!
"About 1593, Galileo constructed a thermoscope, using the expansion and contraction of air in a bulb to move water in an attached tube. Galileo also discovered that objects (glass spheres filled with aqueous alcohol) of slightly different densities would rise and fall." -Wikipedia
X Tab 10 comes with a 10.1 inch touchscreen display, supporting a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The camera we mentioned above uses Exmor R technology, a Xenon flash, 4x optical zoom and support for HD recording. A 3.2MP camera is also found at the front and Android 3.0 Honeycomb was chosen as the software platform for this concept tablet.
128GB of storage will probably be enough for any user and all in all we can say that the G-Slate, Moto Xoom and iPad 2 could have a real rival, if this comes out.
Here's an exclusive look at the upcoming Android™ Honeycomb-powered T-Mobile® G-Slate™ with Google™, by LG. Expected to be available in coming months, the G-Slate will be the first 4G tablet from the two companies powered by Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), the upcoming version of Google's Android platform optimized for tablets.
