A Flying Robot that Perches, Flips and Dives


Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) could help the military carry out surveillance in unknown territory or first responders look for survivors after a disaster. The trick is making them agile enough to pull off daredevil aerobatic maneuvers.

Daniel Mellinger, Nathan Michael and Vijay Kumar at the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Laboratory have developed software that lets a small, quadroter helicopter perform aggressive acrobatic stunts autonomously. They show off the impressive maneuvers–including a quadroter that autonomously maneuvers quickly through a tight space–in a new video, below.

Spy in the sky that sees round corners

WHY jump in a cab to “follow that car” when an airborne drone could do the job for you? The US Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is developing a radar system which sees around corners and down into “urban canyons”. DARPA hopes to be able to track vehicles across an entire city using just a few uncrewed aircraft.

Traditional radar relies on direct line of sight, so it’s tricky to track a vehicle that keeps nipping behind buildings. But DARPA believes that by using buildings as mirrors, it will be possible to identify a target vehicle from radar reflections. The experimental system is called Multipath Exploitation Radar.

Ay Carumba! The Utimate Game Chair is truly the best video game chair on the market by far. It’s the most comfortable video gamer accessory we’ve ever tried. As a game chair for Xbox 360 or as a game chair for Playstation 3, we found this the most comfortable game chair available. We found extended game time more comfortable an certainly more compelling. After hours of strategic game play with realistic gun shots, explosions, and sports tackles, we just couldn’t stop playing.

Our wives thought the massage chair features were pretty darned cool too, especially since the game chair has built in audio speakers for their soothing music. It’s like an audio game chair combined with a video game chair. What a great bonus that they approved of our game chairs! A happy wife makes for a happy video gamer.

My son plays in the Raptor game chair while I use the Ultimate game chair. He thinks the floor lighting under the chair is “way cool” and he likes to play with the game chair buttons on the side. The custom game controllers on the Ultimate game chair were a hit, but he still likes using the wireless game controllers he got for Christmas. Befre long we’ll have to get another Raptor game chair for my daughter.

The bottom line on these chairs is that they were worth every penny we paid for them. We’d recommend them to anyone who is even moderately interested in video games and is looking for the perfect video game accessory. They create the perfect game room environment!
