The future of food. Vertical urban farms.
Take this rad Gorillaz video/song for a spin in 360 video.
I don’t buy that these sort of things will be in people’s homes right out of the gate. But I can definitely see them in commercial use sooner than later. If the take out line cooks at fast food were robotic arms, definitely could happen.
I love it when I find a real-world version of Gatecrashers tech I dreamed up. I’ve been thinking about a lightweight stretcher with mono-pod caster and gyroscopic gimbals to help Gatecrashers get through the tight and twisty buildings and streets of Palomar City.
from James Dyson Awards:
What It Does
With it, you can move patients faster & smoothly, preventing secondary damage to the injury.
The patient stays horizontal no matter how you hold it or how fast you run. So when stretcher-bearers are rushing out ferrying a wounded, it ensures safety.
A camera stabilizer is a device designed to hold a camera in a manner that prevents or compensates for unwanted camera movement, such as “camera shake”.
Inspired by its structure, 360° Balance Stretcher has rugged all-terrain handling by using gyroscopes to sense disruptive motion and using 3 individual motors to balance the system. So it has the ability to stabilize the patients when moving vigorously in emergency preventing secondary damage. Modular engineering and compact design makes it easy to produce and assemble. This allows a reasonable hardware cost which is much lower than the cost of suffering treatment for secondary damage.
This is what we’ve been waiting for – so much scifi prediction, so many applications. I’m just 36″ laptop display that folds neatly down into my backpack.
This one just in from Gizmodo.
Hacking always jumps tech from it’s original use to a new application:
The Tech Tats will certainly take your cyborg cosplay to a whole new level, butChaotic Moon Studios actually developed them for medical monitoring purposes. Instead of wearing a temporary (and cumbersome) chest strap or arm cuff to monitor a patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, or other vitals, a circuit board tattoo could be applied to their arm that would wirelessly communicate with a smartphone app to keep tabs on them.
