Silverback Robot : An Ape-Like Robot by Jason Falconer

Posted by muhammad najmie on 7:59 PG in

Silverback robot is a conceptual robot designed by Jason Falconer for Icarus Technology's bid to enter DARPA's Robotics Challenge. The challenge (slated for 2014) will require a robot to drive a vehicle, open doors, climb ladders, and use power tools (among other tasks). While most of the robots entering the challenge will likely be humanoid in design, Icarus Technology felt that an ape-like robot would work best. It is able to stand up like a person, but can also walk on all fours for better stability on rough terrain.

To do this, the Silverback robot requires stilts on its arms to prevent injury to its hand mechanisms. It also walks with inverted knees on flexible but strong carbon fiber planks similar to those used in prostheses for athletic amputees, which is a fairly unusual method for robots.

Cuissential SlickBoil: Collapsible Silicone Tea Kettle Fits Perfectly In Your Bag or Drawer

I guess the title says it all, Cuissential SlickBoil is a cool collapsible silicone tea kettle, thus eliminating the need for large space in your kitchen. A perfect kettle to carry when you go camping, hiking, or traveling, it collapse into small and compact form enough (under 2,5”) to fit easily in your bag or kitchen drawer. If you live in a small spaced apartment or Recreation Vehicle (RV), you definitely should checkout this product, hey, you can also keep it in you office. Making tea, coffee, soup, or any hot beverages won’t be an issue, Cuissential SlickBoil boils up to 4 cups of water.
Many customers who have purchased Cuissential SlickBoil agree that this product looks good and works great, it does the job well while looking stylish in the process. Due to its silicone body, I strongly suggest you not to use the kettle over a large flame, don’t let the flame exceed the stainless steel base and come in contact with the silicone body for safe operation.

New Kinda Buggy Ride

More often than not, you end up compromising on additional hand luggage when you travel with a toddler, especially when alone. The idea of the Ride On is to offer you a versatile baby carriage that adapts to being a suitcase, when not being used for the baby. Essentially it hosts a dedicated seating area for the baby, while the rest of the bag can be used for your travel stuff. A kind of hybrid bag-baby buggy! The idea is very nice but it requires some refinements that ensure that baby's safety and sturdiness of the suitcase.
