But, the magic happens when you stick the blocks together, and they cooperate to create an entirely new robot: Each Cubelet has a tiny computer inside of it and is a robot in its own right.
Shelving for Cars This is one big shelving. Two towers for car storage.
Invisible Hotel - Tree House Nature | October 5, 2010 / views: 5,232 This interesting eco-hotel, "mirrorcube", is located on a tree, about 15m above the ground; made by a Swedish architectural firm Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter. In the cube with dimensions of 4m, covered with mirrors, there is a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and terrace. From these rooms offers a wonderful view of 360 degrees on the forest and animals in it. The rooms are perfectly comfortable and pleasant.

Another product from Colombian studio DosUno Design (whose Rubix transformer furniture set we reviewed yesterday), Deckstool is a simple wood mat that folds into a stool. Apart from being perfect for small spaces , it's also flat pack and simply produced with few materials. Example of the deckstool folding into a seat. The idea is pretty simple but it would be interesting to explore it for other types of furniture: a mat with broader pieces of wood could make a neat table or desk, and unfold into a flat, thin structure for easy transportation.
Writing by Evan Ackerman on Friday, 1 of October , 2010 at 2:27 am This is a set of all of the different long exposure pics that I’ve taken while doing reviews of cleaning robots. I spent a likely excessive amount of time reviewing each robot in detail (and you can read those reviews at the links below), but really, the pictures explain the cleaning patterns better than I ever could. It’s illuminating (so to speak) to see them all right up against one another, so here they are: iRobot Roomba 560 , 45 minutes
While we tend to think of USB hubs as computer accessories that help us connect more gear to the limited ports on our computers, they're equally as effective at replacing overpriced USB wall chargers and provide juice for more gadgets. Lifehacker reader jcrashmiller001 thought it was ridiculous to pay almost as much for a single-cord USB charger as you'd pay for a brand new USB hub. Rather than pay upwards of $15.00 for a USB Wall charger for my phone or iPod, I use a $20 powered USB hub. I can charge more at once for a lot less per port, and I use less outlets on the wall.
THE scientific literature that comes into a newspaper office is often weird, mostly wonderful and sometimes simply woeful. But on this day, the science was pointing to a worrying development in the way we humans think. The ratio communis , a key region of the brain, was malfunctioning. Instead of fluorescing on brain scans, it flickered, grey and dull. What science was trying to work out was the link between this dead zone and gadgets.
Scientists in the U.K. have developed a flexible film that can manipulate light to render objects invisible. The film contains tiny structures known as "metamaterial," and marks the next step in creating a real-world invisibility cloak, like the one in the Harry Potter novels. But this cloak is magic-free.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Anyone driving the twists of Highway 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles recently may have glimpsed a Toyota Prius with a curious funnel-like cylinder on the roof. Harder to notice was that the person at the wheel was not actually driving. The car is a project of Google, which has been working in secret but in plain view on vehicles that can drive themselves, using artificial-intelligence software that can sense anything near the car and mimic the decisions made by a human driver. With someone behind the wheel to take control if something goes awry and a technician in the passenger seat to monitor the navigation system, seven test cars have driven 1,000 miles without human intervention and more than 140,000 miles with only occasional human control. One even drove itself down Lombard Street in San Francisco, one of the steepest and curviest streets in the nation.
