What if you had a pen that could replicate any color that you wanted? South Korean designer, Jinsun Park came up with a pen that does just that. Still in concept phase, the top of Jinsun’s pen would be a sensor so that it would replicate any color that you put it up against. A computer inside the pen would mix the RGB inks to create the color detected by the sensor. The pictures below explain the rest:
AutoBlog recently posted an article about a Canadian that took 7 years to dig out his basement with RC construction equipment. Seriously, every single day, woke up, and drove his RC equipment to work downstairs. This amazed us, so we watched some of the videos that this fellow posted on YouTube, which led us to more and more videos on YouTube. Apparently, RC Construction and Forestry equipment is a really big deal. And a very expensive deal at that.
There are a few big websites dedicated to the RC truck and construction equipment world. The main one we found is BackyardTrucking.com, where the CAT 345 Excavator resells for $5890. Yowsers. Another website that we visited requested an extra $850 if you wanted the model assembled. Apparently it’s a big deal.
Here are a couple other RC construction and forestry videos that we enjoyed:
Two weeks ago, a good friend of mine showed me a YouTube video of a Quadrotor Drone. How rad. If you have never seen a Quadrotor Drone before, your jaw will probably drop like mine did. This particular Drone video shows off it’s advanced maneuver capabilities. Take a look:
After a little more research into Quadrotor Drones, I found out that the most popular one is the Parrot AR Drone. The Parrot AR Drone can be flown by iPhone and is available on the Apple store for $300. Not only can you pilot the AR Drone with your iPhone, but Parrot made a game app that allows you to battle with other drones in real life. Take a look:
It’s really only a matter of time before these drones take on a mind of their own and try to take over the world. But until then, they look like a lot of fun. They are definitely stuff men like!
