The Hybrid Exploration Robot for Air and Land Deployment.

is composed of two snake-like machines that attach via magnets to a UAV. After being carried to the site by the quadcopter, snake bots can detach themselves, slip through the holes and cracks of a collapsed building, for instance, and slither to their destinations.

The US military is considering the use of exoskeletons like this Sarcos for its soldiers

It was inevitable that funding for these projects by the US Military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) would lead to spin-offs finding their way into private startups. There are now at least another three companies developing exoskeletons for commercial use and the focus is on creating them to help people with spinal injuries. A Swedish company, Ekso Bionics, makes a 20kg titanium and aluminium suit that costs $100,000 a pop, which has helped several crippled individuals walk again for the first time.

Explore Virtual Reality with Leap Motion 3D Motion Controller

Have you heard of augmented reality or virtual reality? As wikipedia puts it, augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

There is a lot of research and products coming out on the market at the moment that can enhance the users perception of reality. The 3D motion controller by Leap Motion is one of them.

You now have the chance to try one of these products, since for a limited time only, the Leap Motion 3D Motion Controller is $10 Off. This promotion will run through 10/25 so don’t miss it.

The Leap Motion 3D Motion Controller uses multiple cameras and infrared light to detect hand motions in3D space  tracking the movement of both hands and all 10 fingers with incredible speed and precision. Just plug the Leap Motion Controller into your computer, download the software, and launch the Leap Motion SDK to get started.

Leap Motion 3D Motion Controller

Here are the main features of the Leap Motion controller:

  • Enables you to operate a computer with hand movements
  • Tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter
  • Senses 8 cubic feet of interactive, three-dimensional space
  • Tracks movements at a rate of over 200FPS
  • SDK in six programming languages
Controlling With Leap Motion

 

Leap Motion has an active developer community where you can create, share, and discover a wide variety of open-source integrations, cool projects and fun hacks. Makers and hardware hackers can use the tracking data to control almost anything – from flying drones or manipulating robotic arms, to LEDs and 3D printers.

You can also integrate your Leap Motion Controller with an Arduino, attach it to a head-mounted display like the Oculus Rift, or drive a remote-controlled car over Wi-Fi. With the new raw image pass-through and head-mounted tracking software capabilities, you can literally reach into virtual and augmented realities, where the possibilities are truly endless.

Benefit from this promotion in order to start exploring virtual reality with the Leap Motion 3D Controller today.
