Homebuilt Rovs How I Got Started I've always been interested in anything mechanical or robotic but I got started building Rov's as a result of fishing. I use to do a lot of fishing and I had a fish finder on my boat that would show the depth and contour of the bottom of the lake but I wanted to see what type of actual structure and where the fish were hiding down there.

Handbook on Digital Health Electronic medical records, health apps, tele-consultations and e-prescriptions are some of the terms that are currently being debated strongly in the healthcare sector. And not without reason: The use of modern information and communication technologies can enhance the quality of patient care, reduce healthcare costs and create new markets, as long as the highest standards of data protection and technical security measures are provided. The new Digital Health Handbook (in German) describes the various digital health trends, incorporating practical advice and best-practice models that readers can apply to concrete situations, while also helping them recognise specific risks and opportunities in digital healthcare.

Poppy, a 3D-printed humanoid robot that defies conventions A new 3D-printed robot called Poppy is helping a team of French researchers study bipedal walking and human-robot interaction. They were able to design, fabricate, and assemble a relatively large robot for around €8,000 (US$11,000) including servo motors and electronics. That's about a third the cost of commercial robots in the same size category like the RQ-TITAN, and is still cheaper than smaller humanoids like the Aldebaran Robotics NAO.

Make your bike electric in 60 seconds by GeoOrbital Sometimes you just need all-wheel drive. Just like being in a car with all-wheel drive you have a lot more stability and control in harsh environments. The GeoOrbital wheel performs great in all weather conditions but if you pedal while using the wheel you will have all-wheel drive when you need it most. The GeoOrbital wheel comes with a flat-proof solid foam tire, so you never have to worry about getting a flat or even checking tire pressure. By using the latest hi-density foam technology the tires act and weigh the same as a traditional bike tire, but you will never get a flat.

My ROV Well I don’t normally plan my projects in as much detail as this, I tend to just jump in and build something. I guess that after many years of rushing in and ending up another creek without a paddle I am coming to understand the words Preparation and Planning. I’ve never been interested in boats or the sea (apart from maybe, powerboat racing); it’s always cold and wet, but I have always been interested in robotics. I’ve been playing for a while with Robosapien, a small DiscBot and whole house automation. Recently however I came across an Underwater ROV site. We’ve all seen these on the TV and they are magnificent machines, going into all sorts of places.

NanoSeeker Micro AUV NanoSeeker is a design I am working on for a truly tiny AUV. It is six inches long, and an inch and a quarter in diameter. One of the neat things about this design is it has no external fins or control planes, so it can actually fit inside a one and a quarter inch launch tube. Another thing I have done with this design is to only use inexpensive, common off the shelf parts.
