The Demon UAV - World's first flight by "flapless" aircraft

The Demon UAV Worlds first flight by flapless
Gear  |  Military
The Demon UAV is an experimental unmanned air vehicle, "uses blown jets of air to control the plane’s movement in flight rather than conventional mechanical elevators and ailerons."  British engineers have developed the world's first ''flapless'' plane - that uses hundreds of tiny AIR JETS to control its movements. The DEMON uses output from the jets to control airflow over the plane, manipulating lift and drag without using traditional flapping mechanisms to steer. Its developers believe the technology could revolutionise the stealth capabilities of military aircraft by reducing edges and gaps that can be picked up on radar.
In Cumbria last Friday, DEMON successfully demonstrated flapless flight when, for a planned portion of a test-flight, the conventional flap control system was turned off and the aircraft flew and manoeuvred using the new technology. BAE Systems is already recognised as a leader in the field of intelligent autonomy for unmanned aircraft. It promoted the development of the £6.2m FLAVIIR (Flapless Air Vehicle Integrated Industrial Research) programme which led to the DEMON demonstrator after laying down a 'Grand Challenge' to UK universities five years ago.

Earos Ear Cushion

Earos Ear Cushion

Earos Ear Cushion
Gear  |  Design
Earos is a huge cushion for your ear attached to your cellphone, designed to insulate you from heat generated by the phone, and the big cup will keep out the cold wind when you're outdoors. Designed by Robert Potter. Currently it is only a concept.
 Features:
- Earos maintains a comfortable separation between the ear and the phone unit, which can emit an uncomfortable amount of heat after prolonged use.
- In cooler climates, earos shields the ear from wind and cold, extending the phone’s accessibility.
- Earos-equipped phones incur fewer scratches, protected by the signature padding.
- In reverse position, the earos pad acts as a display stand on flat surfaces, tilting the phone toward the user.

Google Cars Drive Themselves, in Traffic

Google Cars Drive Themselves in Traffic
Gear  |  News
This is a project of Google, which has developed a self-driving car, using artificial-intelligence software that can sense anything near the car and mimic the decisions made by a human driver.
"Robot drivers react faster than humans, have 360-degree perception and do not get distracted, sleepy or intoxicated, the engineers argue. They speak in terms of lives saved and injuries avoided — more than 37,000 people died in car accidents in the United States in 2008. The engineers say the technology could double the capacity of roads by allowing cars to drive more safely while closer together. Because the robot cars would eventually be less likely to crash, they could be built lighter, reducing fuel consumption. But of course, to be truly safer, the cars must be far more reliable than, say, today’s personal computers, which crash on occasion and are frequently infected...
During a half-hour drive beginning on Google’s campus 35 miles south of San Francisco last Wednesday, a Prius equipped with a variety of sensors and following a route programmed into the GPS navigation system nimbly accelerated in the entrance lane and merged into fast-moving traffic on Highway 101, the freeway through Silicon Valley.
It drove at the speed limit, which it knew because the limit for every road is included in its database, and left the freeway several exits later. The device atop the car produced a detailed map of the environment.

NASA wants to send a robotic plane to study Mars

NASA wants to send a robotic plane to study Mars
Gear  |  News

It is the ARES (Aerial Regional-Scale Environmental Surveyor) - NASA's new plan: a rocket-powered, robotic plane that screams over the Martian landscape at more than 450 miles per hour, exposing hundreds of miles of unexplored country. It will spend its two hours surveying nearly 1,000 miles of Mars, taking atmospheric measurements, looking for signs of water, collecting chemical sensing data, and studying crustal magnetism.
"Enveloped in an aeroshell similar to the ones that deployed the rovers, ARES would detach from a carrier craft about 12 hours from the Martian surface. At about 20 miles up, the aeroshell would open, ARES would extend its folded wings and tail, and the rockets would fire. It sounds somewhat complicated, but compared with actually landing package full of sensitive scientific instruments on the surface deploying ARES is relatively simple."
