Thought-guided helicopter takes off Researchers have harnessed the power of thought to guide a remote-control helicopter through an obstacle course. The demonstration joins a growing number of attempts to translate the electrical patterns of thoughts into motions in the virtual and real world. Applications range from assisting those with neurodegenerative disorders to novel modes of video game play.

Western Robotics Ltd. - Battery Buffer, Redundant power - Nightly This new Battery Buffer is the first compact design that is made with high quality components that can withstand outstanding high current loads of 24 Amperes continuous. The Battery Buffer is a high power protection circuit that allows two voltage sources to be paralleled safely. It is designed to work with any combination of battery packs and battery eliminator circuits that has an output voltage of up to 10 Volts. Paralleling connection of either battery packs or battery eliminator circuits is highly not recommended without the battery buffer. Investing in Elon Musk's Hyperloop System One year ago, arguably the most ambitious entrepreneur in the world hinted at plans of building a new method of transportation. This method of transportation would be immune to weather, would never crash, and would be twice as fast as an airplane. It would require less energy and would be cheaper than driving a car.
