See how scientists use high-speed videography to investigate – and learn from – the clumsy flight of the bumblebee.
What researchers at UC Davis discovered when capturing bees with high-speed video to examine their flight patterns and behaviors. Further research details the existence of the protein Reslin located at the joints of wing segments, which allow bee
Ubuntu Core, also known as Snappy, is a stripped down version of Ubuntu, designed to run securely on autonomous machines, devices and other internet-connected digital things. From homes to drones, these devices are set to revolutionise many aspects of our lives, but they need an operating system that is different from that of traditional PCs.
A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated.
It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs. In the next video Continue reading →
Maker Faire is part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new! As a celebration of the Maker Movement, it’s a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Faire gathers together tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. Makers come to show their creations and share their learnings. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community. The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth Continue reading →
Last weekend we were invited to visit Green Fab in the outskirts of Barcelona. A project promoted by Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and part of the Fab City network. One dream place for green thinking and birthplace for many of the environment-friendly and adorable projects coming out from Makers community recently. The Lab is situated in the center of Collserola park-the largest metropolitan park in the world – 22 times larger than Central Park in New York. Incredible Continue reading →
Tennessee House Bill 1456 (HB1456) sponsored by Rep. David Byrd and South Carolina House Bill 4425 (H.4425) sponsored by Rep. Wendell G.
