Amazing Ultra-fast, the robotic arm. A robot developed by EPFL researchers is capable of reacting on the spot and grasping objects with complex shapes and trajectories in less than five hundredths of a second.The research was conducted with a ball, an empty bottle, a half full bottle, a hammer and a tennis racket.
The world's ocean waves hold as much as 10 trillion watts, and engineers and scientists trying to find the best ways to get the incredible resource that's washing up on our shores every day.
River Powered Water Pump, water from flowing streams, creeks, or rivers without electricity of fuel. it can lift water up to 82 feet vertically
Kitepower: Kite Wind Turbine Demonstration video Wind energy harvesting at a higher altitude by using a kite results in a eco and cost friendly solution. This demonstration system is developed by the Asset Group of TU Delft. Roland Schmehl and Rolf van der Vlugt explain current developments and the future of the project.
Amazing MIT Robotic Cheetah
MIT Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory members pose with the MIT cheetah robot in Killian Court (Learn more: http://bit.ly/1CZToFe) Now MIT researchers have developed an algorithm for bounding that they’ve successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah — a sleek, four-legged assemblage of gears, batteries, and electric motors that weighs about as much as its feline counterpart. The team recently took the robot for a test run on MIT’s Killian Court, where it bounded across the grass at a steady clip.
Pedal powered vehicle: filters and stores water
The Aquaduct is pedal powered vehicle that transports, filters, and stores water for the developing world. A peristaltic pump attached to the pedal crank draws water from a large tank, through a filter, to a smaller clean tank.
Turning Ordinary Glass Surfaces into Solar by MSU. A Michigan State University research team has developed a transparent solar panel capable of capturing solar energy. Professor Richard Lunt, MSU assistant professor who headed the research, believes that the panel can be employed in a wide variety of settings.
