Virtual Ski Simulator System by Skytec Interactive

Virtual Ski Simulator System by Skytec Interactive

This is really a cool simulator. could you imagine to play an Indoor Ski? this Indoor Skiing Simulator by Skytec Interactive enabled you to train the snowboarding or even skiing without ever need to go to the ski resort but you can do it on simulated ski training with detailed virtual slopes from Skytec.

SkyTec debuted its first public facility in the United States this month. SkyTechSport Ski and Fit provides indoor ski training in warm, sunny Beverly Hills. The club currently has two different machines: the 18-foot-long (5.5 m) President Lux simulator with a mirror and 10-foot (3 m) screen and the Olymp simulator, a 24-foot-long (7.3 m) machine with a large panoramic display and 3D capability. Later in the year, the facility plans to add a smaller 10-foot Leader Pro model to round out its offerings.

The globally patented ski simulator system from Munich-based SkyTec Interactive combines exercise equipment with a large virtual reality ski simulation. The system includes a pair of skis or snowboard mounted to rails on a long, lateral surface. The equipment allows the trainee to move like they would on the slopes, essentially carving from edge to edge and schussing down the slopes. Through a series of sensors and a computer system, the trainee engages with the virtual ski environment.

The system mimics the centripetal forces experienced during skiing or snowboarding and relays the same G-force to the user, according to the company. Despite the fact that movements on the simulator are lateral, compared to the arcing curves that skiers perform on actual ski slopes, the forces and inertia involved are the same.

In terms of fitness, SkyTec says that its machines offer a combination of strength training and cardiovascular training. The training strengthens leg, back and stomach muscles while increasing muscle coordination and flexibility. The machines can be tuned for various levels of strength and fitness - with more powerful turns, skiers can increase muscle mass, while they can burn fat more effectively with quicker, less powerful turns.

SkyTec systems are designed to be all-season training tools for all levels of skiers and snowboarders. They prompt users to keep skis parallel, remain on their edges, control their bodies and improve balance. They can help beginners to become comfortable with the form and movements required in skiing, and help advanced and expert skiers improve their technique, work with an on-site instructor, and stay in better shape and form during the off-season.

While you could purchase a SkyTec system on your own, if you had the will, space and money for it (a SkyTec rep told us they retail between US$20,000 and $100,000), an easier solution would be to set up a session at the Beverly Hills training facility. All equipment is provided, but you can use your own boots if you prefer. A single session costs $129, and discounts are provided by way of 6, 12 and 24 multi-session packs. Sessions include oversight from an instructor, who observes your form, instructs on techniques and changes simulator settings like snow conditions. They last 50 minutes.

During the months of February and March, the new facility is offering a 30 percent discount on training sessions in celebration of its grand opening. If you do decide that you'd like to own your own SkyTec system, Beverly Hills SkyTec doubles as a dealership and showroom.

Space elevator concept by Japanese Scientist

Space elevator concept by Japanese Scientist

This Space elevator concept by a Japanese company was really cool and amazing, it was said that this space elevator will run at 2050. it means in the next 38 years from now we can take an elevator to go to the space. It could take an elevator concept to a new height.

The Daily Yomiuri reports that Tokyo-based construction company Obayashi Corp. hopes to have a space elevator operational by 2050, carrying passengers and cargo in a vehicle that travels along a ribbon made of carbon nanotubes extending a quarter of the way to the moon.

A counterweight at the end of the 96,000 kilometer (59,652 mile) cable would anchor the entire assembly, which is connected to a station on the ground. Passengers would travel from the surface of the Earth to a terminal station housing a research center and residential facilities located about 36,000 kilometers (22,369 miles) up the ribbon in a car traveling at 200 km/h (124 mph). At that speed the journey is anticipated to take about a week.

Solar panels at the same elevation as the terminal station would provide its electricity and also send power back to the surface.

The concept of elevators reaching into space has been around since 1895 when Russian scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky was inspired by the newly built Eiffel Tower to first conceive of the idea of a free-standing tower reaching into geostationary orbit from the Earth's surface. The idea has since become a staple of science fiction, but in recent years conferences have been held on the topic and NASA has also been actively involved in efforts to make them a reality.

But finding a material light enough and strong enough to create such a long cable has been a significant obstacle. Obayashi and others believe carbon nanotubes can get the job done, making them the key to the ambitious project.

Obayashi is not yet saying how much they estimate the project will cost, but when it's up and running, it hopes to transport 30 passengers at a time along the space cable, perhaps using magnetic linear motors. The company also hasn't revealed a location for the space elevator, but as it relies on centripetal forces to keep the ribbon taut, the base station needs to be located along - or at least close to - the equator.

Lunch that cook itself by Japanese Engineers

Lunch that cook itself by Japanese Engineers

What? a lunch that cook itself? did we joking? unfortunately no. a japanese engineers develop a cool science breakthrough by making this lunch that cook itself. as we know bento or a packaged lunch in japan was really famous you can bought from a supermarket, convenience store, or restaurant that specializes in bento. One particular subset of bento is known as ekiben, or, the “station bento.”

As its name implies, you can buy a station bento on the platforms of major train stations across Japan. The station bento is beloved by travelers in Japan because they use ingredients famous or native to the region that you buy them, letting you experience the taste of an area even if you are just passing through. However, there is just one shortcoming to the station bento – it’s cold.

Luckily, thanks to the leading researchers in the field of bento technology, this is no longer the case!

If you take the Shinkansen line through the Tōhoku region of eastern Japan, you can buy a cutting-edge Grilled Beef Tongue Bento for 1000 yen (US$13). What sets this bento apart from other store bought lunches is that by simply pulling a cord it will become a piping hot meal in minutes.

Some readers may be put off by the name, but don’t worry. Beef tongue in Japan is nearly identical to most other cuts of beef. In fact if you were to eat beef tongue in Japan you probably wouldn’t notice what it was unless someone told you. That is, of course, if it’s hot. Cold beef tongue tastes something like the sole of a shoe.

By following the instructions, all you need to do is put it on a flat, even surface and then pull the cord out that’s tucked inside the box. In less than a minute you’ll probably see steam and/or smoke coming out of the box.

Five minutes later you can take off the lid and protective paper to see a faint puff of steam and presto! Your beef tongue bento is ready to eat, complete with hot juicy beef and fluffy rice. The hot juicy meat is especially amazing. Imagine any premade lunch you’ve ever eaten and ask yourself if it’s ever had hot juicy meat. It’s also well-seasoned – not too much but not too little either.

If pressed to make a complaint, it would be that there could be more vegetables. Also the heating effect lasts for about 30 minutes, which can be a double-edged sword. If you’re a slow eater or doing work while eating it’s great to keep your food warm to the last bite. On the other hand, if you’re a fast eater you might find yourself stuck with a hot bowl that you don’t know what to do with.

Overall, this is without a doubt a miracle of modern science. If you’re wondering how it works, well, I don’t know, and I think I don’t want to know. All I care about is the bliss I feel having a warm meal in my belly during a cold day. We at RocketNews24 salute the brilliant minds who worked tirelessly to develop the self-cooking bento.

Cool Kinect Mod can Fly RC Helicopter with Hand Motions

Cool Kinect Mod can Fly RC Helicopter with Hand Motions

This is truly cool amazing kinect mod. this guy can fly RC Helicopter with just his hand motions. he can also adjust its coordinates in 3D. It seems that microsoft wasn’t lying when they said the Kinect motion sensor could help turn your body into a controller in the future. One modder recently found a way to extend this idea beyond video games, and use his body as a controller for an RC helicopter.

Over at MAKE, we’re told that the mod was designed by a youtube user named cdoughty29. Using an Arduino Uno and a Kinect, he’s able to capture and convert signals given by hand gestures into 38 kHz Infrared signals which are transmitted directly to the S107 RC Helicoper.

Check out the video below to see what his project is like when it’s in action. It looks like it would probably be a lot of fun if he had more room to move the chopper around.

Not such a bad home project if you’re into programmer and a little bit of robotics. Thanks to the Kinect, he’s able to translate the movements from his appendages into X, Y, and Z coordinates so that the helicopter can manoeuvre around the room in full 3D.

This is definitely not one of the safest things you can do with your Kinect if you don’t have very much experience handling RC helicopters. Unlike RC monster trucks and cars, those things are basically tiny flying balls of metal. If you plan on trying this at home I’d probably recommend not have anything that’s easily broken and valuable anywhere near the project area. The last thing you’d want would be to crash that little chopper into a mirror or a vase, or even into the Kinect itself!

CAMDASS Augmented Reality Surgery let you do a Simple Surgery

CAMDASS Augmented Reality Surgery let you do a Simple Surgery

Computer assisted medical diagnosis and surgery system (CAMDASS) has developed an awesome concept for the future. with this stuff you can be a doctor and do a simple surgery. This is an Augmented Reality Prototype that designed to help you as non expert doctor to accomplish medical interventions.

Originally this CAMDASS Augmented Reality Prototype was made for Astronauts, since there's no medical experts on the space. CAMDASS developed by the european space agency for future astronauts, 'astronauts cannot be trained and expected to maintain skills on all the medical procedures that might be needed.'

This Camdass utilizes a 3D head-mounted display, linked to an infrared camera to track an ultrasound device. AR markers are placed on a patient's body to indicate important sites, and the system calibrates the display relative to the viewer's and patient's positions. the headset displays floating markers that, when aligned
with the real markers on the patient's body, indicate that the ultrasound probe (or other device) is in the right location.

'CAMDASS' has already been tested at the saint-pierre university hospital in brussels, belgium. it currently functions only with ultrasound, which is available on the international space station, but the research team anticipates its integration with other devices for additional surgical procedures. the system would provide the assistance needed by responders in deep space, as well as in developing areas or remote locations.

Watch the Video about How CAMDASS Augmented Reality Works.

The Oldest Living Organism is a Giant Posidonia Oceanica Seagrass

The Oldest Living Organism is a Giant Posidonia Oceanica Seagrass

The world's oldest living organism is Posidonia Oceanica seagrass, the scientist has discovered the 200,000 years old seagrass in the Mediterranean. This giant patches of seagrass surpass the tasmanian plant which is "only" 43,000 year-old. According to the scientist this nine mile wide stretch of Posidonia Oceanica Seagrass began its life when humans first emerged in the late Pleistocene era.

Posidonia Oceanica or also known as Neptune Grass or Mediterranean tapeweed is a seagrass species that is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea. It forms large underwater meadows that are an important part of the ecosystem. The fruit is free floating and known in Italy as 'the olive of the sea' (l'oliva di mare). Balls of fibrous material from its foliage, known as egagropili, wash up to nearby shorelines.

The scientist calculated the age of the plants from DNA tests on clumps gathered from the seafloor between Spain and Cyprus

This Giant Posidonia oceanica seagrass which is claimed as the oldest living organism on earth was Weighing 6,000 tons and stretching for 10 miles, the seagrass patches reproduce asexually and spread very slowly, eventually covering large areas. A key attribute to their longevity is their ability to store nutrients in their long branches, Professor Carlos Duarte from the University of Western Australia told the Telegraph.

This Giant Posidonia Oceanica Seagrass grows so large and lives so long because it has few native competitors and no major predators in the marine habitat. The extensive subsea meadows support some of the most valuable ecosystems on the planet.

Despite the organism’s ability to survive in harsh conditions, scientists believe the seagrass is nevertheless declining, something scientists blame on global climate change.
