Soft Body Robots Just Put The Right Suit

    When Will Smith fighting robots, is usually associated with large structures or strong humanoid forms. But something as soft as the foam can also be the body of a robot using a skin or bespoke suit created by researchers at Purdue University. They made Soft Body Robots just using the Right Suit.

    With this development, the technology is not in the robot itself but on the skin or coat in dressing, so any element can potentially benefit from this textile material that has included a flexible polymer that is capable of contracting and heat relax by applying an electric current, Depending on the placement of the lines of polymer can achieve a movement or other.

    Researchers also have sensors integrated into the suit, which opens the way to winning touch in future developments.

    One objective is in space. This development is being conducted in partial collaboration with NASA, who sees in this technology the foundation for future robotic suits for its astronauts combining low weight and possibility of modification of their properties and functions in real time and in response to needs.

    Also future rovers to other planets complex areas could benefit from either soft or rigid, and incorporates movements demand.

    Blackberry Revealed The Blackberry Passport Phone

    RIM’s Dilemma

    In life and miracles of Blackberry we outline a path, that of the previously called RIM, which was cut short in his meteoric career from the professional sector to the consumer by the confluence of touch phones with a great experience and ecosystem with messaging systems multisystem.

    With Blackberry 10 and its first devices planted what was to be his grand strategy to react: a system with a very new interface , especially touch phones in high-end as the Z10 or Z30 and the claim, as I recognized managers of the Canadian company to “pick up disillusioned with the lack of innovation Apple iPhone”.


    We know how this movie ended, Blackberry with an even greater crisis and acceleration, mass layoffs, output markets, steps back and not complicated to get the sale to its main suitor, Lenovo horizon.

    Passport, a blackberry for those who like the blackberry with Passport Phone what you have put on the table is a return to the sources, a faithful and caring for your market first, professional. Instead of thinking “how like us they do not want physical keyboards” have decided to go for those who do are the natural target audience.

    There are several things I like, a priori, the device: screen, battery, qwerty keyboard, the integration of Android apps via Amazon store… but mostly I like Blackberry has forgotten to make an iPhone after conclude, rightly, that Apple is not going to be winning Apple.

    Samsung cable to share the load between mobile devices

Among other things the tool allows you to select the amount of energy we want to transfer to another device.

    Actually that load sharing can be transferred to other devices that use Micro USB connection to recharge, so it is not strictly necessary that the other device is the Galaxy family. The cable costs $ 20 , and now remains to be seen if other manufacturers release a solution compatible with more devices, either the origin or destination of these energy transfers.
