Design The Karma Drone led the charge for compact quads when it debuted last September . Measuring 14.4 x 8.8 x 3.5 inches (36.5 x 22.4 x 9cm) when all folded up, it's dramatically smaller than the DJI Phantoms that have dominated the consumer airspace for years. However, this is exactly where DJI came in to steal the Karmas thunder with the water bottle-sized Mavic Pro, which was announced a week after GoPros quad. Despite it not being the smallest drone in the world, the way you can stash the Karma into a regular backpack is admirable. This is all thanks to a folding design that sees the both sets of arms flipping forward, while the landing gear closes flat against the drones underside. Image Credit: Nick Mediati The Karma Drone is also unique in that the camera sits on its nose, whereas most quads have the camera hanging underneath their fuselages.

The Viride Dos is a more traditional planter with elegantly added features. It has a spacious base with room for several plants, along with two lighting disks and a mister to manage humidity. The whole planting even rotates to ensure even access to moisture and light. As a green thumb whose fluctuating house humidity has killed several innocent ferns, this speaks to me on a spiritual level. The Viride Tres surrounds a hanging planter with a chorus of lighting at different heights, rotating slowly to simulate the range and exposure of daylight. Your orchids, epiphytes, and trailing exotics would feel like the Grande Dames they are. All the lamps are adjustable for the light and moisture needs of the plants, and households, they serve, and the LEDs can be programmed for on/off cycles that best fit the climate and lighting. Álvaro Goula and Pablo Figuera have tapped into a common experience in urban life, and leveraged it into something really striking.

Speaking in an interview, Iserbyt explains how school system functionaries are trained to identify resistors, the parents among us whom would dare to object to the unreasonable changes in schools and educational programs. ‘I was trained to identify the resistors. The resistors to the sex-ed, drug-ed, alcohol-ed, suicide-ed, death-ed, those sgood, smart Americans who realize that anything that education hanging off the end of it is probably not what they’re looking for. I was trained to identify those good people, and to go up against them, and actually to go and try to get them to join us through the group process system. Make them feel important, get them on a committee… and that just blew my mind.” Charlotte Iserbyt How does the school system manage to force programs onto local districts which would never want such programs? How do they con people into accepting new ideas for education that really dont make sense for their communities? The answer is that the system actually trains members of the school system to identify, target, and recruit the right people in a community, so that others will play follow-the-leader with people whom they trust.

Connected pet feeders, connected kettles, connected hairbrushes there have been some quite silly connected devices launched to take advantage of the internet of things boom. But this concept idea out of Japan's Android Experiments Objects showcase is a case for how the IoT can take a ubiquitous household item and make it fantastically more useful. The Magic Calendar', from designer Kosho Tsuboi, is an e-paper screen that syncs with your Google Calendar, effectively giving an internet-connected twist to your standard wall-hanging day planner. Here's a video of the concept in action: A magic reimagining The details are slim (and not made any easier to discern thanks to the video's Japanese origins), but essentially the Magic Calendar would make use of a custom Android app to pull in real-time data from your Google calendar. It's a great idea add an event to your phone's Google Calendar app, and have it added to the physical e-paper calendar too.

Thompson, his onscreen wife and offscreen close friend, is not going make an appearance in the reunion because it's too soon. Richard [Curtis, the writer] wrote to me and said darling we can't write anything for you because of Alan' and I said no of course, it would be sad, too sad', Thompson told the BBC . It's too soon. It's absolutely right because it's supposed to be for Comic Relief but there isn't much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend really, only just over a year ago, she added. The lovable Colin Frissell (Kris Marshall) is also sadly absent from the revival. Why? Im assuming that hes in prison now, Curtis told the Radio Times in an interview. Is Andrew Lincoln's character still obsessed with Keira Knightley? Unclear. But it's unlikely he managed to make it work with the girl of his dreams, as pictures from the set show Keira Knightley (who played Juliet) happily hanging out with her onscreen husband Peter, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor.

We've covered a lot of light-painting videos before, including jiggering a 3D-printer and using a hanging plotter to paint. But we haven't seen a light-painter with an essentially unlimited canvas before. We'd also love to see what two or more of these little fellows could accomplish working together.

There are many things people do with spare rooms. Some make guest rooms, others make baby rooms, while a few even make craft rooms. What do hackers do with spare rooms? Turn them into giant 3D printers of course . [Torbjørn Ludvigsen] is a physics major out of Umea University in Sweden, and built the Hangprinter for only $250 in parts. It follows the RepRap tradition of being completely open source and made mostly from parts that it can print. The printer is fully functional, proven by printing a five-foot tall model of the Tower of Babel. [Torbjorn] hopes to improve the printer to allow it to print pieces of furniture and other larger household items. [Torbjorn] hopes that 3D printing will not go down the same road that 2D printing went, where the printers are designed to break after so many prints. Open source is the key to stopping such machines from getting out there. Thanks to [Jeremy Southard] for the tip! Filed under: 3d Printer hacks

Each LED light turns on and off periodically depending on how much light the plant needs. Viride Uno, as its name would suggest, has one large LED panel that doesn't move. It is best for airplants or other epiphytes, which grow without soil and get nutrients from air. Viride Dos (featured) has two panels that can be rotated and has a wide container for plants that need a lot of soil. Moreover, the planter section rotates at a low speed to ensure the plant receives the necessary amount of light. It include an air humidifier as well. Viride Tres is meant for hanging plants and has three LED panels ensuring that the plant gets light from all angles. When it is on, the LED panels rotate continuously to mimic sunrise and sunset. Watch it in action below.

Theres a grand space mystery conceit at play, but the most breathtaking aspect of the game was the way it delivered a zero-gravity environment. Playing the part of a human-sized robot, youd need to propel yourself around a space station by gripping surfaces and pulling away just as you see real world astronauts doing up on the ISS. The fidelity of motion and refresh rate of the visuals allowed this to happen without turning your stomach, and the way the Touch controllers mapped individual finger grips was fantastic. The sense that you were literally hanging onto the outside edge of a spaceship as an interstellar anomaly violently rocks the space around you is a memory that will not be quickly forgotten. From Ready at Dawn, the dev team behind PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886, the environments and digital actors involved are incredibly lifelike too (and unlike that earlier title, theres the promise of a lengthy single player and deep multiplayer component too).

Freedom of speech and the right to assembly have been trampled on last night. All freedoms were hanging in the air in Netherlands last night. The people that were there to gather with us face an inhumane attitude. They have been attacked by horses and dogs. The Netherlands which is always lecturing us about the freedom of press dragged journalists on the ground. Journalists have also been attacked by the dogs and horses.''

The trademark hacker style of Hessian YouTuber [Homo Faciens] is doing a lot with a little. Given a package of parts from a sponsor, he could have made something normal like a fancy robot arm. Instead, he decided to make a winchbot . (Video embedded below.) What's a winchbot? It's a big frame that supports three relatively heavy motors that pull steerable gripping arms around. It's a little bit like the hanging Hektor / wallbot / plotterbot and a little bit like a delta-style 3D printer. Although [Homo Faciens]'s build doesn't showcase it, a winchbot is also a great way to lift heavy things because the parts that need to be beefy the frame and the lifting motors don't have to move. We love the gimballed square rod that works in concert with the winches! With five extra servos on hand, and the computing power of a Raspberry Pi, [Homo Faciens] couldn't just stop with lifting a claw.

“They’re looking for a way to survive and they just can’t. They can’t seem to find their way out so they’re hanging on while they look or wait for something to return or come up with an answer.” “What is it they’re waiting for?” one of the interviewers asked. “They’re ahevidently there was a group or a party of them that went to find a new place to live. It’s like I’m getting all kinds of overwhelming input of the… corruption of their environment. It’s failing very rapidly and this group went somewhere to find another place to live.” Wow. So if one million years ago the ancient martians had the technology to travel to a place far away in search of a new home, it’s safe to assume their technology was far superior to our own. This brings up two questions that really need answers: What caused the martian catastrophe that turned their planet into a wasteland and forced its denizens to seek a new home? and Was that far-away place they went to Earth? I wish I could answer the second question.

And it seems to have worked … The 1947 Byrdsecretflight has kept anyone from looking into what was really going on in 1947. By causing these false narratives to spread out amongst the general public, the public could be cajoled into believing that the whispers about Nazi bases in Antarctica were all false and should just be ignored. Besides, we have other things to worry about, like, the Cold War and the now-regular pattern of international conflict and financial boom and bust cycles. DEATH BY HANGING AND JUMPING One of the sad mysteries of the late 1940's continues to be the question of what really happened to America's first secretary of defense, James Forrestal. The short story is that he cracked under pressure, went insane, had to be admitted into Bethesda Naval Hospital for treatment, and one day, fashioned a hanging noose from his dressing gown, tied one end of it to the radiator in his 16th floor hospital kitchen, and then proceeded to jump out the window to his death.
