By: BLOODHOUND SSC – 1,000 mph car

Originally published on Jan 16, 2017

The BLOODHOUND Team are at Newquay Airport to test the Fuel Systems for the EJ200 Jet Engine – they need to simulate the G forces the jet fuel will face at 1000mph by tilting the lower chassis to an angle of 60 degrees. Find out how they got on in this episode of Cisco BLOODHOUND TV.

Meet Spot, the robot dog that can run, hop and open doors | Marc Raibert

By: TED

Originally published on Aug 14, 2017

That science fiction future where robots can do what people and animals do may be closer than you think. Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, is developing advanced robots that can gallop like a cheetah, negotiate 10 inches of snow, walk upright on two legs and even open doors and deliver packages. Join Raibert for a live demo of SpotMini, a nimble robot that maps the space around it, handles objects, climbs stairs — and could soon be helping you out around the house.

Published on Feb 15, 2017

Using the power of engineering and brilliant inventions to save lives!!! Great times collab-ing with Bill and Melinda Gates! You should check out the Gates Annual Letter here: http://b-gat.es/2lhhtmJ

Pre-order a paper microscope here- https://www.foldscope.com/order

Read the published paper on the paper centrifuge, its cool- http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016…

7:54– Special song written just for me- Lincoln Hoppe, http://lincolnhoppe.com/

Summary: I met with Manu Prakash from Stanford to talk about 2 of his labs’ inventions the Foldscope and the Paperfuge. Combined these cost only 68 cents and they can be used to diagnose Malaria. Both of these are examples not only of simple, brilliant design, but of how engineering is used to make a positive dent in the world.

Road Safety / The Virtual Crash Billboard / Serviplan France

By: Serviceplan France

Originally published on Apr 11, 2017

LA SECURITE ROUTIERE D’ILE DE FRANCE AND SERVICEPLAN GIVE PEDESTRIANS QUITE A SHOCK… FOR THEIR OWN PROTECTION

Serviceplan held an unprecedented field operation on 22nd March in Paris to raise awareness about the dangers of being a careless pedestrian, which results in 4,500 victims each year in Ile-de-France.

The idea behind the operation was to display a specially designed interactive digital billboard near a busy pelican crossing. Equipped with a movement detector, speaker, and camera, the smart billboard made the sound of squealing tyres whenever a pedestrian attempted to cross the road while the “red man” was displayed.

The frightened faces of the disobedient pedestrians were projected directly onto the billboard. Their faces were then featured on the road safety billboards, and their photographs are shown alongside the caption: “Don’t look death in the face. Check the lights and cross safely”.

The digital video and posters, created under real-life conditions, will be used as part of the forthcoming “Quinzaine Régionale des Usagers Vulnérables” (15-28 May 2017) (train station billboards, Facebook campaign, etc.)

Introducing Google Wind

 

By: Google Nederland

Published on Mar 31, 2017

Holland is one of the greatest countries to live in, but the biggest downside is that it rains 145 days a year. That’s why the Google Cloud Platform team in the Netherlands is launching Google Wind this Spring.

We leveraged existing Dutch infrastructure to realize this moonshot in record time. We upgraded some historical windmills in Holland with control modules connected to Google Cloud Platform. Google Wind then uses Machine Learning to recognize cloud patterns and orchestrate the network of windmills when rain is approaching. Test results look very promising.

We’re proud to announce that from April 1st we’re able to help ensure clear skies for everyone in Holland.

Jerobeam Fenderson – Blocks 3D (Anaglyph)

 

By: Jerobeam Fenderson

Originally published on Jan 23, 2017

Watch with anaglyph 3D glasses!
red = left eye
cyan = right eye

There should be an option to watch on Google Cardboard when on mobile.
Side by Side version for 3D TV / VR Headsets / etc.: https://youtu.be/q1cc-bEXkTs
Original track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KDek…
more: http://oscilloscopemusic.com

What you see is what you hear: The audio signal is fed into a software oscilloscope, where vector graphics are drawn with sound. This is done twice, with slightly rotated images for each eye, i.e. four audio channels have been used.

channel 1: horizontal deflection, left eye
channel 2: vertical deflection, left eye
channel 3: horizontal deflection, right eye
channel 4: vertical deflection, right eye

This video is in stereo because YouTube doesn’t support 4-channel audio, but you can download all the WAVs from http://oscilloscopemusic.com (album download now includes the 4-channel WAV, existing download codes still work!) or https://jerobeamfenderson.bandcamp.co… (2 stereo WAVs).

Major thanks to https://www.youtube.com/hansiraber for all the crazy software!

Software Oscilloscope this video was rendered with: http://asdfg.me/osci (now supports 4-channel audio / stereoscopic 3D :))
