Ninja Squirrel takes it all Chronicle: Universal robotic gripper Robert Barker/University Photography The human hand is an amazing machine that can pick up, move and place objects easily, but for a robot, this "gripping" mechanism is a vexing challenge. Opting for simple elegance, researchers from Cornell, the University of Chicago and iRobot Corp. have created a versatile gripper using everyday ground coffee and a latex party balloon, bypassing traditional designs based on the human hand and fingers. They call it a universal gripper, as it conforms to the object it's grabbing, rather than being designed for particular objects, said Hod Lipson, Cornell associate professor of mechanical engineering and computer science. The research is a collaboration between the groups of Lipson, Heinrich Jaeger at the University of Chicago, and Chris Jones at iRobot. John Amend The robotic gripper conforms to the shape of the item it is lifting. "This is one of the closest things we've ever done that could be on the market tomorrow," Lipson said.

50 Things Everyone Should Know by Mark and Angel Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades. Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than a specialized master of only one. While not totally comprehensive , here is a list of 50 things everyone should know how to do. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23.

Hug Chair by Ilian Milinov A Chair for Clingy Lovers If you’ve ever had someone sit in your lap, you know that 15 minutes is about the max your legs can handle. It’s really not fair. Designer: Ilian Milinov Take typing lessons, test your typing speed and practice typing for free! This is keybr.com, a web application that will help you teach touch typing. Touch typing is typing without using the sense of sight to find the keys. A person possessing touch typing skills will know their location on the keyboard through muscle memory. This is a short tutorial that will explain how does this application work. You can use the left and right arrow keys to navigate through these slides. This tutorial is based on these few principles: No boring, repetitive exercises. Initially it starts generating words from a small subset of the most frequent letters of the alphabet. When you are typing these words, keybr measures time to type a key for every letter in that subset. Once you familiarize yourself with the current subset of letters, the algorithm expands it, including more and more letters to it. The algorithm can also artificially rearrange letter frequencies, putting emphasis on the letters with the worst time to type measure. This is the text board. This is virtual keyboard.

Rolling Bridge ? Heatherwick Studio London, UK The studio was commissioned to design a pedestrian bridge to span an inlet of the Grand Union Canal at Paddington Basin, London, and provide an access route for workers and residents. Crucially, the bridge needed to open to allow access for the boat moored in the inlet. The aim was to make the movement the extraordinary aspect of the bridge. A common approach to designing opening bridges is to have a single rigid element that fractures and lifts out of the way. Rolling Bridge opens by slowly and smoothly curling until it transforms from a conventional, straight bridge, into a circular sculpture which sits on the bank of the canal. The structure opens using a series of hydraulic rams integrated into the balustrade. The whole structure was constructed at Littlehampton Welding on the Sussex coast and then floated up the Grand Union Canal, before being lifted into position and attached to the hydraulic system which powers its movement.

D.I.Y. Is in Their DNA Some people build their own doghouses or tree houses. Jacob and Melissa Brillhart’s D.I.Y. project was a little more elaborate: They hand-built a 1,500-square-foot house. Never again, they insist. Sure, they are both trained as architects, and he has his license, but most architects are content to leave the heavy lifting to the contractors. Mr. He grew up in Canterbury, N.H., home of the Canterbury Shaker Village, which “had some kind of influence on me,” he said. But more important, perhaps, was what happened when he was five: His parents gut-renovated a 1780 house. “I don’t think my family is quite as extreme,” said Ms. So in 2011, while they were living in a one-bedroom apartment in Miami Beach, Fla., they decided they should build their own house. What they discovered is that when you set about doing something yourself, help often presents itself at every turn. “They taught us to go back to the basics, to time-tested strategies,” Mr. As Mr. Mr. Still, it wasn’t always easy going.

Was It Too Soon to Be Sustainable? Photo Warren, Vt. — Dotty Kyle and Eric Brattstrom had an ambitious vision for the home they would build when they sold their bed-and-breakfast here seven years ago and retired. They were environmental and community advocates, so they wanted it to be as sustainable as possible — ideally net-zero, producing as much energy as it used. And because they would be living on a modest fixed income, they needed to make sure it was inexpensive to maintain. But they didn’t want to scrimp on luxury or size, so against their architect’s advice they insisted on 5,000 square feet, enough space to accommodate all their children and grandchildren at the same time. And a $30,000 hydraulic elevator, so they could age in place. The indoor pool was just for fun. “We sold a nine-bedroom B&B and then pretty much recreated it right up the street,” said Ms. “I was an idiot and built a house that was way too complicated and labor-intensive,” said Mr. The good news? And because Mr. Mr. Now he and Ms. When Mr.
