Roll-Out Solar Array Experiment (ROSA) Deploys on International Space Station8m00s

Roll-Out Solar Array Experiment (ROSA) Deploys on International Space Station

The Roll-Out Solar Array (ROSA) was deployed from the end of the Canadarm2 robotic arm Sunday, June 18 outside the International Space Station. ROSA is an experiment to test a new type of solar array that rolls open in space like a party favor and is more compact than current rigid panel designs. The ROSA investigation tests deployment and retraction,characterizes changes when the Earth blocks the sun, vibration and other physical challenges to determine the array’s strength and durability. ROSA has the potential to replace solar arrays on future satellites, making them more compact and lighter weight. Satellite radio and television, weather forecasting, GPS and other services used on Earth would all benefit from high-performance solar arrays. The payload will remain deployed for seven days before retracting and will be stowed back inside the trunk of SpaceX’s Dragon cargo vehicle. Note: footage of deploy is sped up 300%.

Real-life Iron Man flies at 30mph!49s

Real-life Iron Man flies at 30mph!

We've all heard of Iron Man and his tales. Tony Stark's famous suit has become a phenomenon for fans and scientists alike. Although the movie portrayed a super suit which can fly, obviously it was all just show. That suit got engineers thinking, and it didn't take long to take action. Several people have tried to replicate the suit for real, with little success. Until now. As the suit develops and Richard's ability increases, we find him here soaring at 30mph over a 500m stretch. Richard said he might have let out an involuntary 'whoop' while turning! Gravity is a British human propulsion technology start-up with a mission to re-imagine the future of manned flight. Epic! Would you ever give this a go? The future is here, and this suit can only get more and more realistic as time goes on. From dream, to a reality! How awesome is that? Check out this real-life Iron Man!

Introducing Handle1m37s

Introducing Handle

Introducing Handle Handle is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4​ ​feet vertically. ​It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. ​​​Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles​ found in the quadruped and biped robots we build, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs Handle can have the best of both worlds.

Real life prosthetic hand inspired by video game

Several months ago Armatus Designs received a commission to create a functional prosthetic hand based off of the Phantom Pain hand used in Metal Gear Solid 5. This was for a client who was born without a left hand and grew tired of his standard claw style prosthetic, but didn't want to shell out thousands of dollars for a motorized medical grade prosthetic. The goal was to create something durable, functional and useful on a budget. This is the result!
