This is a motorcycle for snow. It would run on a track like a snowmobile, but it would be a different kind of ride. The user would be sitting higher, just like on a motorcycle, and would be able to maneuver tighter turns. It could also go down narrow trails more easily.

New sport coupe - Maybach Exelero

In 2005 the Maybach Company presented their new invention. It was a chopped-down two-seater coupe sponsored by tyre company - Fulda. This model is a combination of first-class quality of a high-end limousine and powerful coupe that reaches a maximum speed of over 350 km/h.

TALON Small Mobile Robot For Terrorism

TALON is a powerful, lightweight, versatile robot designed for missions ranging from reconnaissance to weapons delivery. Its large, quick-release cargo bay accommodates a variety of sensor payloads, making TALON a onerobot solution to a variety of mission requirements. Built with all-weather, day/night and amphibious capabilities standard, TALON can operate under the most adverse conditions to overcome almost any terrain. The suitcase-portable robot is controlled through a two-way RF or F/O line from a portable or wearable Operator Control Unit (OCU) that provides continuous data and video feedback for precise vehicle positioning.
Built with all-weather, day/night and amphibious capabilities standard, TALON can operate under the most adverse conditions to overcome almost any terrain. The portable robot is controlled through either a two-way RF or F/O line from a portable or wearable Operator Control Unit (OCU) that provides continuous data and video feedback for precise vehicle positioning.
TALON’s payload and sensor options include: multiple cameras (color, black and white, infrared, thermal, zero light), a two-stage arm, gripper manipulators, pan/tilt, two-way communications, NBC (nuclear/biological/chemical) sensors, radiation sensors, UXO/countermine detection sensors, grenade and smoke placing modules, breaching tools, communications equipment, distracters and disrupters.
The TALON robot is used for bomb disposal. It is operated by radio frequency and equipped with four video cameras that enable troops to determine which areas enemy soldiers occupy. In addition, the TALON is waterproof up to 100 feet, allowing it to search for explosives off-land. The TALON also was used to locate victims and debris at the World Trade Center. It was developed for the EOD Technology Directorate of the Army’s Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ by the engineering and technology development firm Foster-Miller.
The Talon began helping with military operations in Bosnia in 2000, deployed to Afghanistan in early 2002 and has been in Iraq since the war started, assisting with improvised explosive device detection and removal. Talon robots had been used in about 20,000 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan by the end of 2004.
The Pathfinder Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration [ACTD], sponsored by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command with the ACTD and Urban Technology Office at the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center serving as technical manager, is an effort to integrate unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles and unattended smart sensors into a mobile, self-forming and self-healing network. The network enhances situational awareness, command, control and communications to commanders and assault forces operating in urban areas. Pathfinder leveraged the Talon robot, which is commonly used for jobs best avoided by warfighters, such as entering a booby-trapped cave. The ACTD is integrating the Special Operations Forces Laser Aiming Module used to send a coded laser to guide smart munitions to a target. It's on the robot, so you don't expose soldiers. You can clearly identify targets without having Soldiers get into harm's way. By using a radio relay attached to it, troops can drive it out to longer and more useful distances.

Soldiers have armed robots as battle buddies by early 2005. The Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection System, or SWORDS, joins Stryker Brigade Soldiers in Iraq when it finished final testing. The system consists of a weapons platform mounted on a Talon robot. It’s not a new invention, its just bringing together existing systems.
The Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center and Army Special Operations Command jointly hosted a demonstration of modular payload systems on robotic platforms from 14-17 July 2004 at Avon Park Bombing Range, FL. The demonstration started with a Talon robot driving over anti-personnel land mines to place an explosive charge on an anti-tank mine, followed by a live fire of all three armament systems engaging targets out to 450 meters in single fire and automatic fire modes. Visitors to the demo watched the live fire events and then received detailed briefings on the operation of the systems.
Different weapons can be interchanged on the system – the M16, the 240, 249 or 50-caliber machine guns, or the M202 –A1 with a 6mm rocket launcher. Soldiers operate the SWORDS by remote control, from up to 1,000 meters away. In testing, it’s hit bulls eyes from as far as 2,000 meters away. The only margin of error has been in sighting. It can engage while on the move, but it’s not as accurate.
The system runs off AC power, lithium batteries or Singars rechargeable batteries. The control box weighs about 30 pounds, with two joysticks that control the robot platform and the weapon and a daylight viewable screen. SWORDS was named one of the most amazing inventions of 2004 by Time Magazine.
As of late 2004 there were four SWORDS in existence; 18 were requested for service in Iraq. Each system has cost about $230,000 to produce. When they go into production, it is estimated the cost per unit will drop to the range of $150,000 to $180,000.
While many people are fearful that armed robots will run amok on the battlefield, this was not an issue for the demonstration. The robots employ a "man in the loop" where the robots are always under the direct control of a soldier. The soldier issues commands to the robot and the small arms weapons through the robot's operator control unit. The soldier also issues commands to the rocket and grenade launchers through a newly developed Remote Firing and Control System. This firing and control system, which was developed by Duke Pro, allows a single soldier to control up to five separate firing systems using a 40 bit encryption security system.

The World's Greatest Invention

As someone who creates audio, video and takes tons of pictures, you might say that backing up and archiving data is a bit of an issue for me. Hard drives are the cheapest archival medium, but enclosures are expensive and a pain. I really like the drive arrangement of the Mac Pro - they're easy enough to get in and out of the machine that I don't mind doing so for the occasional archive. I started thinking it would be cool to get some spare trays and it would be even cooler if there was an external device I could just push one of these trays into if I wanted to make that drive live without shutting down the machine. But even that isn't necessary. I found the Thermaltake BlacX. It is a USB 2.0 SATA drive dock. Drop a raw SATA drive in, and you're all set. It works!

Solar Powered Bobike

It’s time to say goodbye to gas stations, solar-powered bike is comming soon. This motorbike operates on solar energy and designed by SUNRED, a Spanish automotive development company, that got a prize for Best Innovative Technology during the Barcelona Int’l Auto Show.

The project, which will result in a life-size prototype in the near future, consisted in creating a model able to capture sunlight, store electrical power and power the motorbike in the most environmentally respectful way. Instead of deploying panels that might occupy too much space, SunRed decided to adopt a clamshell structure that would optimize the panels surface while not making the vehicle bulky. When the bike is stopped, the solar panels surface tops up to 3.1 m2 (25 sq. ft) and it can store energy for up to 20km (13 miles) at 50km/h (30 mph). The motor, as in most modern electric bikes, is brushless and it’s placed right in the axle of the wheel, saving transmission components.

It will soon be available and I’m certainly in favor of such vehicles to grace our roads in the near future. Although this is just a concept, SunRed pretends to serve it as a benchmark for future developments of solar applications in all kinds of vehicles. So keep an eye ………..

Brain Machine Interface of human

A new technology in Japan could let you control electronic devices without lifting a finger simply by reading brain activity. Slight changing flow of bloodstream in the brain that translates brain motion in electric signals and analyzes by the brain machine interface.

Hitachi developed brain-machine interface is a technology called optical topography, which sends a small amount of infrared light through the brain’s surface to map out changes in blood flow. This technology is traditionally focused on medical purposes.

Since 2005, Hitachi has sold a device based on optical topography that monitors brain activity in paralyzed patients so they can answer simple questions - for example, by doing mental calculations to indicate “yes” or thinking of nothing in particular to indicate “no.”

An earlier such technology required to implanting a chip under the skull but it’s diffrent, key advantage of Hitachi’s new technology is that only sensors are used & don’t have to physically enter the brain.

Wednesday, June 20, 2007, follows the demonstration by simply take off a head gear that reads brain activity and lets you control everyday objects without lifting a finger. A cap connected by optical fibers to a mapping device, which links, in turn, to a toy train set via a control computer and motor during one recent demonstration at Hitachi’s Advanced Research Laboratory in Hatoyama, just outside Tokyo.

However, the technology is entertaining in itself and could easily be applied to toys. It’s really fun to move a model train just by thinking. Any brain-machine interface device for widespread use would be “a little further down the road and we are thinking of various kinds of applications,” project leader Hideaki Koizumi said. “Locked-in patients can speak to other people by using this kind of brain machine interface”.

Scientists are now set to develop a brain TV remote controller letting users turn a TV on and off or switch channels by only thinking. As well as Honda, whose interface monitors the brain with an MRI machine like those used in hospitals, is keen to apply the interface to intelligent, next-generation automobiles.

The technology could one day replace remote controls and keyboards and perhaps help disabled people operate electric wheelchairs, beds or artificial limbs. Initial uses would be helping people with paralyzing diseases communicate even after they have lost all control of their muscles.

Rechargable USB Battries

To kick off the blog, we start with an extremely innovative new invention, USB Rechargable Battries

Although charging batteries using your USB port is not a new idea, before you`ve always needed an external charger which plugs into your USB port and is another bit of kit to carry around with you.

These USB Battries are the same size as normal AA batteries, but the top lifts off to reveal a USB connector, so the batteries can plug straight into the USB port making them easy to recharge. Great for taking away on holiday, they can be recharged straight from your laptop, without the need to carry round an external charger!

With a desktop PC they are extremely useful for charging up batteries for wireless keyboards and mice (which tend to eat batteries!).

The USB Cells also help the environment, as they can be recharged over and over again, cutting down on damaging waste products from dead batteries, which are often incinerated or buried in landfills. The USB Batttries are made from nickel metal hydride (NiMH), which are more enviromentally friendly than the traditional NiCad batteries, which are to be banned in the EU shortly because they contain toxic nickel cadium. They can also deliver an extra 10 - 25% capacity over traditional NiCads! Because they are unplugged when charged, unlike traditional battery chargers, they can also save energy reducing your carbon footprint (or at least saving energy you can use for other gadgets!).

The USB Battries can be recharged over 500 times, and a full charge takes just 5 hours with an LED indicator telling you when the batteries are fully charged and ready for use. A quick 20 minute charge should be enough to power a wireless mouse for a day.

Currently the British spend over £5 million pounds per week on batteries for their favourite gadgets, so these rechargeable batteries can save you some serious cash! Although the batteries require no external charger, they can be used in a tradional battery charger if required, although the charging time increases to 7 hours for a full charge.

Folding Bike

Sometimes it’s a lot easier to walk up a steep hill then to peddle it – but you still want the breakneck thrill of the downhill journey. Ideal for hikers and campers, the Bergmönch can be folded up and worn as a rucksack when not in use, and transforms easily and quickly into a 9.5kg bike. Designed with a telescoping framework, this folding bike comes with a storage compartment that can carry up to 12 liters of supplies, as well as a helmet net.

Latest Invention Of Generate Household Electricity

A West Australian inventor believes he has developed a way to generate electricity for homes using wind power.

Graeme Attey of Fremantle designed the concept which uses a modular wind turbine that is small enough to sit on a the roof of house.

Mr Attey says his modular wind turbine is about a metre in length and half a metre in height, and creates power using blades which are rotated by the wind.

He says the system can also be used in conjunction with solar panels.

"Between solar and wind it's very easy actually to drive a whole house."

Mr Attey believes a home could generate extra power to then feed back to the electricity grid.

The West Australian Government is helping Mr Attey fund his trials and says it will consider offering householders a rebate to install the system when it's released onto the market some time next year.


It may look like the most dangerous motorbike in the world but this new invention is actually the latest form of green transport.

The electric Uno is the brainchild of 18-year-old Canadian Ben Gulak who spent several years developing the bike, which is controlled entirely by body movements.

The machine actually has two wheels, side-by-side, and uses gyroscopic technology to stay upright. It moves in the direction the rider leans - and the more you lean, the faster you go.

Ben claims that the bike could help beat pollution and he was inspired to design it after visiting China and seeing all the smog there.

He says: “The bike is fairly easy to ride, but takes a bit of getting used to because you have to learn to trust it.”
