The macro-sieve created by Daniel Moran. Daniel Moran and his team are developing an electrode implant to re-create sense of touch for amputees. (via Daniel Moran) There have been several innovations in modern prosthetics from ones controlled with the power of your mind to ones created by 3D Printers, but they still lack the sense of touch for amputees. Daniel Moran, professor of biomedical engineering, and his team at Washington University in St. Louis are hoping to change that.   M ...
Some scientists are giving a new meaning to ‘the web’ with nanotechnology. Researchers at University of Trento have discovered that covering spiders with carbon nanoparticles can allow them to produce silk up to 3.5 times stronger than usual. This weird science has even weirder potential applications.  (via University of Trento) In the spirit of weird science, a team of Italian researchers from the University of Trento have employed a series of strange experiments getting e ...
A leg brace that generates power to keep an artificial heart ticking. Rice University students and researchers have been working on a way to create a wearable energy generator to power artificial hearts for a few years now. They are currently closer to creating a more realistic prototype to serve their mission. (via Rice University) Can you imagine how annoying it can be to change the battery on a pacemaker? Well a team at Rice University has been trying to create a sustainable source of e ...
So much money... and no way to carry it home... until now! The Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp is the first to test Cyberdyne’s exosuits designed specifically to help employees over 65 to carry wads of cash. If successful, this trend could continue within the Japanese banking sector. (via Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp & WSJ) One Japanese bank is test piloting an exosuit created by Cyberdyne Inc., to allow senior employees to carry tons of cash easily. Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp has ...
New from Stanford - a tiny robot called Microtugs that can pull 100 times its own weight. In fact, when they scaled the robot up, it was able to haul even more than 2,000 times its own weight! The new technology is really exciting and could have really interesting implications for search and rescue missions, along with construction. Who knows! Perhaps the next skyscrapers will be built by these little robots pulling huge beams up buildings?   The robot was created by Stanford University en ...
::votl:: group modifies a typewriter to print out selfie ASCII art (via votl) This would have been huge in the early 90s! Those fun BBS days. I thought I had seen the last of selfie technology with the toaster that toasts a selfie into your bread.... but alas, I was wrong! The Russian project ::votl:: has been having a blast with their modified typewriter that prints out selfies in ASCII fashion. ::votl:: is a project headed by a Moscow-based artist named Dmitry Morozov. He is a media- ...

Um einen genaueren Einblick in die Arbeit unseres Elektronik & Informatik Ressorts gewähren zu können, stellen wir im Folgenden die Platine unseres Lenkrades vor. Das Lenkrad bildet die Schnittstelle zwischen dem Fahrzeug und dem Fahrer. Alle relevanten Daten, die der Fahrer benötigt, müssen daher übersichtlich und klar dargestellt werden. Dazu zählen zum Beispiel die Geschwindigkeit, die Drehzahl sowie die Motortemperatur. Um dies zu ermöglichen wird f&# ...
Wie bereits im ersten Teil „Vom leeren Blatt Papier zum Formelrennwagen“ beschrieben, sind allein die Studenten für die Entwicklung, Konzeption und Fertigung des Rennfahrzeuges verantwortlich. Neben den alltäglichen Vorlesungen, Tutorien und Praktika werden hierfür unzählige Stunden vor den PCs sowie in der Werkstatt verbracht. Das Fahrzeugkonzept des TOMSOI VII basiert auf 4 Bereichen: Elektronik & Informatik Fahrwerk Monocoque & Aerodynamik Motor &a ...
