26,000 people have been surveyed by paper giant G.F Smith to work out exactly how we attach specific emotions to specific colours.
Even the most ardent and hardened of southerners has to admit that Manchester is one of the UK’s great cities. Blessed with an amazing cathedral, an abundance of brilliant pubs and an immense cultural history, we’re always looking for an excuse to hop on the Pendolino from Euston on a Friday evening. Now we have another one.
The Sewn Timber Shell investigates the use of robotics and sensing mechanisms in combination with garment design and industrial sewing techniques to explore a new way of fabricating tailored wood structures and re-engaging with traditional craftsmanship. The related research studies traditional garment patterning and connection techniques still used in fashion today and re-interprets them in a new material context. Fabric is replaced by thin sheets of plywood, which establishes an altered relation between material pliability and stiffness and thus introduces loadbearing capacity to the novel material system.
If you were going to kick off a technological revolution, you’d be hard-pressed to do it with more pizazz than Tesla with its electric cars. Flashy, kinda-self-driving, neck-snappingly fast electric cars. But oddly enough, what’s driving it all—the electric motor—is an ancient technology at this point. It’s lost out to the gas engine for over a century, sure, but it’s finally begun to take over transportation, thanks to supporting roles from better batteries and fancy sensors.
If CES 2017 was anything to go by then we are sure to see even more and even more adorable AI-equipped robots at CES 2018. proving this presumption, the cute but very helpful team of honda ‘3E robotics concept’ are set to be shown at the technology show in las vegas, USA. with experimental technologies, the designs are intended to be used to advance mobility and make people’s lives better, matching the japanese company’s over-arcing vision.
Autonomous vehicle technology often prompts discussions about profit, safety, efficiency, jobs, and more. But this innovation can change millions of lives today without introducing a single car to the road. Think: self-driving wheelchairs.
Starting today, apple will begin exclusively selling the fighting AR-robot spider, ‘MekaMon’, created by reach robotics. the model, which received $7.5 million in funding after its’ intial run of 500 sold out, connects to your smartphone to play in both solo and multiplayer games, either in real world or augmented reality.
Harvard researcher’s long-time project in robotics has produced the latest generation of ‘RoboBee’, with the ability to fly, dive into water, swim, propel itself back out of water, and safely land. it is hoped that the hybrid invention could perform search and rescue missions, research studies and environmental monitoring.
