OSVehicle - Open Source Vehicle. Tired of an aging industry, not sustainable, slow, with little innovation, too complicated and closed, we decided to bring a new vision to the transportation industry.

OSVehicle - Open Source Vehicle

Francisco Liu and his company Italchina worked for over 30 years in this sector: from cars and motorcycles to trains, with brands such as Giugiaro and the Cagiva Group. Tin Hang Liu, Francisco’s son, was new to the industry and worked with his father for 8 years on an electric vehicle project in collaboration with Giugiaro Design. The first milestone was set back in 2008 when, in Silicon Valley, Tin met some pioneers of OSHW (Open Source Hardware) and thought about a way to merge the two worlds. He saw the fast growth of startups as an opportunity and came up with a question: “how can we enable serial entrepreneurs in the field of electric vehicles?” An internal evangelization began.

She’s something of a veteran of open sourcing hardware, having developed several (mainly electronic) projects while at MIT and, indeed, since. Sugar solution turns embryos and brains see-through, allows for high-res imaging. A team of neuroscientists at the RIKEN institute in Japan have created a liquid, primarily fashioned out of fructose sugar, that turns flesh transparent.

Sugar solution turns embryos and brains see-through, allows for high-res imaging

This aqueous solution, called SeeDB, has been successfully used by the researchers to make mouse embryos and brains transparent without damaging any of the fine structures within the samples. The researchers were then able to visualize the entire neuronal circuitry of a mouse brain on a whole-brain scale, without having to first cut it into slices — an important first for neuroscience. In technical terms, the RIKEN researchers have created an optical clearing agent. MakeTank » Digitally Crafted Design. DIY Drones. Software for Brain Computer Interfaces and Real Time Neurosciences.

A modular system unites the advantages of standardisation (as parts can be produced cheaply in large amounts) with the advantages of customisation (since a large diversity of unique objects can be made with relatively few parts).

How to Make Everything Ourselves: Open Modular Hardware

Modularity can be found to a greater or lesser extent in many products (like bicycles and computers) and systems (like trains and logistics), but the best examples of modular systems are toys: LEGO, Meccano, and Erector (which is now the brand name of Meccano in the US). LEGO, Meccano and Erector are composed of relatively few elementary building blocks, which can be used to build various objects. The parts can then be disassembled and re-used to build something completely different. Apart from the elementary buildings blocks, these manufacturers have produced many more specific building blocks, which are less versatile, but further increase customisation possibilities.

LogMeIn and ARM Announce Collaboration to Accelerate Commercial Products on the Internet of Things LogMeIn’s Xively Jumpstart Kit combines Xively Cloud Services with ARM ’s mbed platform to reduce time and cost of bringing new IoT products to market The Innovation District, BOSTON , May 14, 2013 – LogMeIn, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOGM ) announced today its collaboration with ARM® to simplify and accelerate commercial development on the Internet of Things (IoT).

As part of the agreement, the companies are cooperating on LogMeIn’s Xively Jumpstart Kit, a rapid prototyping-to-production bundle that significantly reduces the cost, complexity and learning curve required to bring IoT-based connected products and solutions to market. This announcement coincides with the release of LogMeIn’s Xively Cloud Services , a new commercial IoT Public Cloud, unveiled today. “We are seeing real traction in the Internet of Things market. DIY Drones. A Computer Inside a Cell. For the first time, synthetic biologists have created a genetic device that mimics one of the widgets on which all of modern electronics is based, the three-terminal transistor. Like standard electronic transistors, the new biological transistor is expected to work in many different biological circuit designs. Together with other advances in crafting genetic circuitry, that should make it easier for scientists to program cells to do everything from monitor pollutants and the progression of disease to turning on the output of medicines and biofuels.

Researchers have already made impressive strides over the last decade in mimicking the behavior of electronic circuitry using DNA, RNA, and proteins. But often these devices tend to work only in the precise setting for which they were designed, such as turning up the expression of one particular gene in response to detecting a specific input signal.

The Blog featuring best of DIY, HOW TO, Hacks, Gadgets, and more Technology! I just Survived an Airplane Crash! I still remember very vividly. Recently I was headed from somewhere in Arizona to San Francisco on flight 824. As usual, the flight was pretty darn boring, and life was same as usual. Then suddenly, nearing our destination in San Francisco, the airplane started free-falling.

I thought it would stop but no, the free-fall just kept getting worse for what felt like 20 minutes. Even worse, I could feel the plane’s nose slowly turning towards earth, which made me think that it’s impossible at this point for the airplane to correct itself.
