I’ve seen a few transforming robots in my day but few are as fluid and fast as this odd creation from Brave Robotics, a Toyko-based company that is selling its creation for a mere 1.98 million Yen. The little robot starts out as a car and then quickly transforms into a standing humanoid complete with FREAKING ARM MISSILES. Sadly, that many Yen translates to about $26,000, which could fund the purchase of a few dozen Transformers toys and the salary of a dedicated butler to transform the toys for you by hand.

Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.
This event acted as an organic cross between an art installation and advertising. With live streaming from each event, family and friends were able to share their experience around the world.
An interesting way how google applies the morse code into the modern technology. Maybe it will work maybe won’t, the future will tell us. For more information Morse code in wikipedia.
A Stirling engine is a heat engine operating by cyclic compression and expansion of air or other gas, the working fluid, at different temperature levels such that there is a net conversion of heat energy to mechanical work. Like the steam engine, the Stirling engine is traditionally classified as an external combustion engine, as all heat transfers to and from the working fluid take place through the engine wall. This contrasts with aninternal combustion engine where heat input is by combustion of a fuel within the body of the working fluid. Unlike a steam engine’s (or more generally a Rankine cycle engine’s) usage of a working fluid in both its liquid and gaseous phases, the Stirling engine encloses a fixed quantity of permanently gaseous fluid such as air.
