Stridalyzer Smart Insoles

Gear  |  Projects
Smart insoles Stridalizer is a Kickstarter project for a device called the Stridalyzer that aims to help runners improve themselves.
That way users can keep concentrating on their run and will only need to pay attention to their form if and when the app alerts them to it. The Stridalyzer will also be able to monitor the stress placed on your foot and knee in real-time, so if you’re wondering why you’re starting to feel tired or feeling any signs of pain, the app should be able to tell you why.
"We have designed our solution to continue to monitor your run, and interrupt you only when it needs to “alert” you with some important information or quick guidance. For example, if you start persistently overpronating, or if your footstrike pattern changes, you will get a visual as well as an audio alert – this way you can keep your eyes on the trail and still get the information or advice that’s relevant for you – WHEN it becomes relevant!
If you are trying to buildup your pace or find the optimal rhythm for your next marathon, Stridalyzer helps you monitor and track the three fundamental performance parameters: Stride Rate, Stride Length and the most elusive – Ground Contact Time. Using our patent-pending technology, we can measure ground contact time extremely accurately

Snow Drawing Atop a Frozen Lake by Sonja Hinrichsen

Array

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Snow Drawings at Catamount Lake by teams of snowshoe-equipped volunteers (approximately 50 to 60 per project).
"This Snow Drawings piece was created with approximately 50 volunteer performers, who collaboratively recreated – in an abstracted sense – the original flow of the Yampa River and its 4 main tributaries within Routt County, CO. The river is now dammed and the valley is filled with water. In a 4-hour effort the groups of volunteers walked across the lake on snowshoes to create a pattern of a general stream as well as paying tribute to the moods of water, as its flow may be slow or fast, rough or smooth, straight or meandering, whirling in circles and racing down rapids. The piece was photographed from an airplane the day after the event."

Lunar Mission One, a Private Crowdfunded Mission to send an unmanned robotic to the moon

Gear  |  Projects
Lunar Mission One is an private crowdfunded mission to "send an unmanned robotic landing module to the South Pole of the Moon – an area unexplored by previous missions."
"We’re going to use pioneering technology to drill down to a depth of at least 20m – 10 times deeper than has ever been drilled before – and potentially as deep as 100m. By doing this, we will access lunar rock dating back up to 4.5 billion years to discover the geological composition of the Moon, the ancient relationship it shares with our planet and the effects of asteroid bombardment. Ultimately, the project will improve scientific understanding of the early solar system, the formation of our planet and the Moon, and the conditions that initiated life on Earth."
This project is currently up for funding on kickstarter (get £271,836 till now).
