Lightweight Exoskeleton Lets You Run 10 Easier
Gear | Tech


Jason Kerestes is a graduate student at Arizona State University. With support from DARPA, he has developed the AirLegs exoskeleton. It's a small machine worn on the back that decreases the metabolic cost of walking and running by about 10% versus not wearing the machine.
"This device was tested at the Army Research Laboratories in September 2013 and demonstrated a 10% reduction in metabolic cost (compared to no device) for users running at high speeds. It is the only device known to the US Army to oficially augment the human running gait cycle."

Time-Lapse of the Beautiful Spots in California

By Ben on Mon Sep 8 2014 |
Gear | Video
"California is the most populated state in the United States, and the third largest. It's almost double the size of the United Kingdom and slightly larger than Japan. If it was it's own independent country (as it was briefly for a few weeks in 1846), it would have the 8th largest economy in the world by GDP. It contains the highest summit and the lowest desert in the Contiguous United States (and the second-lowest point in the world), both of which are in the same county. It's most known for movies, technology, wine, and national parks, but also grows more than a third of the vegetables consumed in the US, two-thirds of the fruits and nuts, and an unknown but presumably huge percentage of marijuana. It contains every major climatological biome except tundra. More important than those facts, to me, is that I was born and spent most of my life here. "

BBC Coast - The Netherlands

Gear | Video
The Dutch are masters in water management. Without their ability to 'manage' the seawater, river water and groundwater, much of the low-lying Netherlands would be under water.
This video shows the astonishing man-made shoreline of the Netherlands. Nick Crane explores how ingenious Dutch engineers created massive coastal defences following the great North Sea flood in 1953 which killed thousands of people in the Netherlands.
