The first of its kind – open robot building system

 

A great idea from a teacher, two engineers, and a robotics specialist 다운로드. Developed to use in the classroom but developing a following outside of it. The Multiplo robotics system.

It’s easy to assemble, difficult to break and simple to customize:

The concept is that you get a box that has a kit inside 다이아 나랑 사귈래 다운로드. We took care of all the technical details in order for each single part to be compatible. Everything you need to build a robot is inside of the box. But you can also add your own parts…

“Right out of the Box” are the words we like to use about how you should start using your Multiplo Kit 드래곤볼 슈퍼 극장판 브로리 다운로드. There is no need to program, study a wiring diagram or buy tools. No soldering or protoboard needed. You can build a simple robot in about 45 minutes 다운로드.

 

I particularly like the selling point: “robotics should be for everybody”. There are more videos of the prototype robots and three-wheelers 다운로드.

NASA has released an amazing panorama shot of Mars:

The best video NASA has ever produced – ‘7 minutes of terror’ – landing a robot on Mars

 

On Aug 다운로드. 5 or Aug. 6, depending on which part of the country you’re in, the Curiosity spacecraft careening toward Mars will hit the Red Planet’s atmosphere, deploy a supersonic parachute and either land safely on the planet’s surface or perish 다운로드. It’s dramatic stuff, and NASA has produced this Hollywood-style YouTube video, complete with animation and suspenseful music, to preview the landing, evoke that drama and put viewers on the edge of their seats 다운로드.

As engineers explain, it will take seven minutes for Curiosity to travel from the edge of Mars’ atmosphere to the surface, going from a speed of 13,000 mph to zero 2010 엑셀 무료. “If any one thing doesn’t work just right, it’s game over,” engineer Tom Rivellini says.

Because Mars is so far away, it actually takes 14 minutes for the spacecraft’s signal to reach Earth 다운로드. So by the time we learn the spacecraft has hit the top of Mars’ atmosphere, Curiosity will have either have survived the landing or perished for a full seven minutes 패러렐 즈 무료 다운로드.

Meet the ‘bots’ of Wikipedia

ClueBot NG, as the bot is known, resides on a computer from which it sallies forth into the vast encyclopaedia to detect and clean up vandalism almost as soon as it occurs 다운로드.

It is one of several hundred bots patrolling Wikipedia at any given time. Its role in repairing the Supreme Court article illustrates how bots have quietly become an indispensable – if virtually invisible – part of the Wikipedia project 다운로드.

“Wikipedia would be a shambles without bots,” a Wikipedia administrator known on the site as Hersfold writes in an email.

English Wikipedia alone surpassed four million articles this month 굿윌헌팅 한글자막. It contains an estimated 2.5 billion words, equivalent to millions of pages, and it is 50 times larger than the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

But the project is so vast, and its maintenance so labour-intensive that it defies the capability of its human administrators and editors to keep it in order 윤미래 너를 사랑해 다운로드.

That is where the bots come in.

Congress orders FAA to integrate drones into the U.S. aviation system

As the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration prepares to let civilian unmanned aircraft operate in domestic airspace, universities including Embry-Riddle have created majors in flying and building drones 다운로드. Enrollment is accelerating as students look for new opportunities in an aviation job market pummeled by airline bankruptcies.
