EMOTIV Insight Brainwear® 5 Channel Wireless EEG Headset. Spatial resolution is essential to develop an in-depth picture of brain activity.

EMOTIV Insight Brainwear® 5 Channel Wireless EEG Headset

To accurately map brain activity using EEG, it is crucial to measure signals from many different structures located across the brain’s surface, or cortex. The Emotiv Insight is a five sensor system designed to measure activity in all key functional areas of the cortex. Other mobile EEG systems detect activity in only the frontal and temporal cortices—regions that conduct only a small fraction of the total activity in the brain. As such, these devices provide an inaccurate view of the user’s state of mind, and have extremely limited potential for most applications.

Solar Paper - YOLK

Solar Paper measures just 9 x 19 x 1.1 cm when folded, and each panel weighs only 65~75 (2.5 oz). Watt-for-watt, it is 70 percent smaller and lighter than our closest competitor. Most importantly, Solar Paper is just 1.1 cm deep, at its thickest point, compared to 3.8 cm for our competitor, easy to carry it! Water resistant.

The solar panel of Solar Paper are is water resistant. Amount of solar power through LCD. For Solar Paper, we’ve included an LCD amp meter that shows exactly how much current is flowing from the charger to your device at any time. Convenient Auto reset. Unlike other simple devices with a battery, smart devices like smart-phones and tablets would not accept low current caused by insufficient sunlight. We wanted to make Solar Paper as easy as possible for anyone to use, so we have integrated ‘auto-comparison technology’ into the charger, to make it automatically resume powering your devices, after the sun starts soaking it again.

Turn the Crank and Watch This Mechanical Camping Scene Come to Life. Today, robotics are usually based on servos, steppers, and other electrical gadgets, but before people had access to this type of technology, simple “robots” could be made by translating movement from a rotating shaft into other motions.

How the FAA's Drone Regulations Could Hamper Pros and Journalists. The Locomotives on Roads Act was an 1865 British law that required a motorized vehicle to be preceded by a man on foot holding a red flag to warn the public.

The vehicle’s speed was limited to 4mph on highways and 2mph in villages and towns. Weight and size limits were also provided, as were fines for violating the law. If this sound familiar, you must be an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS or drone) pilot, for some of the rules we must follow are reminiscent of the infamous Red Flag Law. For example, if a drone weighs more than 0.55 pounds, it must be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). That’s reasonable. . © Erika Kyte – Adobe Stock The registration requirement tops two sets of overlapping regulations that drone flyers must obey. Part 107 rules apply to pilots who fly their drones for work, such as photography of property by real estate sales people and cell tower and power line inspections.

Designed to look like Audrey Hepburn, Sophia embodies Hepburn’s classic beauty: porcelain skin, a slender nose, high cheekbones, an intriguing smile, and deeply expressive eyes that seem to change color with the light. If ever there were a robot with a simple elegance people can’t help but appreciate, it would be Sophia. Her creator is Dr. David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics and a modern-day renaissance man who has built a worldwide reputation for creating robots that look and act amazingly human. After working at Disney as one of its “Imagineers,” Dr. Sophia is Hanson Robotics’ latest and most advanced robot. Could you fall in love with this robot? "Our goal is that she will be as conscious, creative and capable as any human," said Hanson.

"We are designing these robots to serve in health care, therapy, education and customer service applications. " Hanson said that one day robots will be indistinguishable from humans.
