Hilla Shamia s Cast Aluminum and Tree Trunk
Home | Furniture
Hilla Shamia, an Israel based industrial designer, has created "a novel way to meld poured aluminum with irregularly shaped wood pieces to create sleek tables and benches.  The process preserves that natural form of the tree trunk while still allowing the molten aluminum to flow into the crevices of the wood, slightly burning the area where the two materials meet." Rather than simply joining the two materials with nuts and bolts the aluminum is poured directly into the wood, which is then cast into the body of the pieces.

Self-Assembling origami robot walks on its own

Gear | Tech
"Footage from the researchers' laboratory shows a sheet of paper and plastic mounted with batteries and motors that folds itself into a working machine without human intervention and then scuttles out of shot.
The flat-pack robot uses "shape memory polymers" that contract like muscles when they are heated. The robot takes about four minutes to assemble from scratch and can walk at a speed of around 5cm per second.
...the robot could pave the wave for flat-packed machines for use in space or in hazardous environments on Earth where they can be put into confined spaces and left to assemble themselves."

The Supersonic Nazi Rocket Concept Designed to Bomb Any City in 1

When WWII ended, American engineers examined a trove of Nazi concepts for rocket-powered weapons and airplanes. One of the most terrifying was Eugen Sänger's antipodal bomber, a manned supersonic plane designed to reach any city on Earth in one hour. Thank heavens it never worked.
 Here's Amy Shira Teitel explaining the terrifying concept:

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Unveiled

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer trailer unveiled
Among the key points:
- As expected, an EXO suit will overcome the pesky limitations of playing a human being in such games, with the ability to cloak yourself, hover and use a force-field to protect yourself. As a result, you’ll be able to kill from above.
- Supply drop options will be added to the game, covering both standard weapons and items you can only use once.
- There’ll be 12 game modes at launch, with new ones including Momentum (in which the team that captured a position last racks up points at an increasing pace) and Uplink (in which you have to carry a satellite drone to an uplink, but the player carrying the drone can’t use weapons.)
- There’ll be a firing range option to try out weapons and customizations before using them in a game.
