Open Source Bulldozer

Taking Open Source Hardware to a new scale, the OSE Bulldozer will make serious earthmoving accessible to any community, enterprise or individual with access to a workshop and a few basic tools. This machine is part of OSE&apos;s Global Village Construction Set (GVCS), a development project that aims to open source the 50 key technologies needed for a modern civilization, allowing for a radically decentralized and democratized economy. See my 2011 Ted Talk for more on this: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> The Bulldozer enables the earthworks needed for sustainable construction and regenerative agriculture, from grading roads to laying foundations, from building ponds to subsoil plowing. Costing 5 - 10 times less than commercial equivalents, this project will lower the very high barriers that exist to doing this kind of work.

"With U Smart Sole" DIY GPS Embedded Smart Shoe sole #MITBetterWorld

What do you do when someone is chasing you or you are lost? Cross your fingers? Don't.When you are in trouble, just cross your feet [in a special way] and your location is sent to your family members. Wait there's more! Even the family can get your location just by calling the shoe. When you call the SIM in the shoe, the shoe automatically hangs up the call and reverts back its current GPS location via SMS.The soles are so comfortable, the wearer doesn&rsquo;t even notice that they are in there!The &lsquo;With U&rsquo; smart soles work on a special algorithm which features a unique gesture recognition pattern[to detect the crossed feet].When you cross your feet, that activates the process of sending the current GPS location to the remote server. And you can check the real-time updates on a Google Map.My prototype is made of MDF wood and I&rsquo;m looking forward ...

After setting up my workplace near to my house I found it really helpful doing DIY projects,as you have all the tools and supplies arranged and available at one place.Later on i get back to my regular schedule,doing small DIY projects.Meanwhile i started feeling that it will be good to have a mobile unit so that in case if i have to work some place rather than my work space i can have access to some of the mostly used tools and supplies.So i have decided to built a portable workstation that have the following features:Portability Space saving On board power Customized design Durability EconomicalThis workstation is specifically designed to save space and being more productive at the same time.Moreover i have tried be cost effective by using most of the parts from old computer scraps that are in good condition..

Couch Console & Charging Table

A couple of months ago, my wife and I bought a new couch for our upstairs entertaining area. We wanted it to be big enough to fit everyone, and this thing can. 12 people at once so far. The only problem is it covers up ALL of the outlets around 2 of the walls and I used to use those outlets for all kinds of things. Lamps, phone chargers, the main router, a subwoofer&hellip; So we&rsquo;ve created a problem for ourselves unintentionally.Then I went over to a buddy of mine&rsquo;s house, let&rsquo;s just call him Mark, cuz that&rsquo;s his name. He built a simple wooden table to fit behind the couch that has some outlets built into and flush mounted to the surface so that he can plug things in. I thought &ldquo;this is brilliant&rdquo; and so I adapted the design to fit our house, needs, and couch.Also, if you're ...

Trump had a surprisingly simple reaction to Fidel Castro's death

In a surprisingly simple tweet, Trump announced Castro's death to the world, like his Twitter account is the political world's obituary page. Of course, it also included an exclamation point.

No Man’s Sky’s upcoming update paves the way for building bases

The sci-fi universe wandering game No Man’s Sky got a vocal and sizeable negative reception after a portion of players felt it overpraised with hype and pre-release advertising but didn’t deliver ultimately with actual gameplay. I genuinely liked the game , but it might be because I didn’t pay very much attention to the actual promises being made by studio Hello Games after the initial news of its existence.

Machines, Madness and Freedom: Invention in the Mojave Desert

More than that, Mojave is home to a whole engineering revolution. Inventors of all stripes have flocked here to rethink machines. Some work on new rockets, some on new types of aircraft, and some of them work on new types of cars. The Mojave airport may be in the middle of nowhere—but it’s an irresistible draw for engineers with expansive imaginations. It’s the place itself that frees them up to think big and different. It’s America’s great inventor playground, where people can push machines to their limits.

Japan wants the world's fastest supercomputer by 2018

The country has asked various companies to bid for the honor of actually building the machine, codenamed ABCI (AI Bridging Cloud Infrastructure). The winner will be announced after December 8th, and will expected to come online in 2018, at least according to anonymous sources. When operational, Japan will rent out time on the platform to companies who currently utilize Google and Microsoft services in an attempt to win back home crowds. It remains to be seen if it'll be successful, but it'll be worth the wait to watch it unfold.

A week with the new Macbook Pro with Touch Pad

The keyboard is good, if not great. I may grow to enjoy it. It’s certainly better than the Macbook’s with a bit more travel and a more sturdy feel. But I currently prefer the 2015 keyboard. The new keyboard feels too shallow for my taste, and I prefer the “softer” feel of the 2015 keyboard when bottoming out the keys. I’m learning to simply type lighter on this new keyboard, but I currently prefer keyboards that I can mash without feeling punished. Make sure to try this out at length in the store.

9 content marketing tips for sales people

But storytelling has an important role to play throughout the sales journey, from introduction and establishing credentials at the top of the funnel, to actually assisting the sales team with collateral to nurture leads in the middle and developing engaging proposals that aid in closing a deal at the bottom of the sales funnel.

T-Mobile Offering a Free iPhone 7 or 7 Plus With Eligible Trade-In on Black Friday

T-Mobile is bringing back its popular trade-in offer for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With it, trading in an eligible device can get you a free new iPhone, or reduce the cost to $350 for the iPhone 7, or $450 for the iPhone 7 Plus.

This 5-second video will crash your iPhone

In our video demonstration of the bug above, you'll see that a link to the video, delivered via iMessage, will make iOS 10 play the file in the default player. It appears that the video is corrupt, generating a loop that causes the iPhone to crash around 10 seconds after watching it. We're not linking to the video for obvious reasons, but it appears to only crash devices when it's sent as a link rather than simply transferred as a file. The only way to recover from the crash is to hold the power button and home button at the same time to perform a hard reset. An iPhone will work as normal once it has rebooted this way.

The Democratic Party Needs to Stop Using Reaction Gifs

The Democrats lost the election, and now they’re just trying to pick up the pieces. The party’s current social media strategy is unfortunate—using reaction gifs to warn of the horror a Trump presidency might bring.

Satechi Slim Aluminum Type-C Multi-Port Adapter review: Get this if you want to quickly connect your new MacBook to a large TV screen

If you use a 12-inch MacBook, which has only one USB-C port, it's helpful that the adapter also has a USB-C port of its own for pass-through charging (you connect your MacBook's power cord to the adapter and it charges your computer) but you can't use the port to transfer data.

Damn OnePlus, back at it again with the 3T

Compared to the 3, the 3T has a darker grey color and a new 128GB storage option. It's got a faster processor, a bigger battery and a better front-facing camera. It's also a smidge more expensive at $439 or £399 for the 64GB variant and $479 or £439 for the 128GB model. (OnePlus isn't available in Australia, but that converts to about AU$580 and AU$632.)

Sorry, Negan: TSA says Lucille has to go in checked luggage

On Friday, the TSA's celebrated Instagram account published a photo of a replica of Lucille, the barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat killing machine belonging to murderous psycho Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).

Microsoft Gives Away New Server Design Aimed at Speeding Global Cloud Setup

Since 2014, 90 percent of the servers Microsoft has purchased for use in its datacenters have been based on Open Compute design. Microsoft often buys these from what are called Original Design Manufacturers, makers of generic, commodity hardware like Quanta and Wistron, and the company worked with an unnamed ODM for the new design. Microsoft also purchases from brand-name sellers, called Original Equipment Manufacturers, or OEMs, but those vendors must use Microsoft's design and meet its price requirements. Microsoft likes the arrangement because it gives it a greater choice of suppliers and lets the company customize what it needs while boosting competition among vendors. 

Microsoft Has a Whole New Kind of Computer Chip—and It’ll Change Everything

With its TPUs, Google sacrifices long-term flexibility for speed. It wants to, say, eliminate any delay when recognizing commands spoken into smartphones. The trouble is that if its neural networking models change, Google must build a new chip. But with FPGAs, Microsoft is playing a longer game. Though an FPGA isn’t as fast as Google’s custom build, Microsoft can reprogram the silicon as needs change. The company can reprogram not only for new AI models, but for just about any task. And if one of those designs seems likely to be useful for years to come, Microsoft can always take the FPGA programming and build a dedicated chip.

You Too Can Invest In a Startup That's Probably Going Bust

It's starting to dawn on crowdfunding investors that many will have to wait a long time before cashing in—if at all. Of the more than 1,000 companies backed since 2011, only three have been sold. While it's normal for a high percentage of startups to go bust, critics are starting to wonder when the success stories will come. The lack of pay-outs, along with increased economic anxiety following the U.K. decision to leave the European Union, may already be cooling interest. Deals on equity crowdfunding sites fell 20 percent in the third quarter, according to the research firm Beauhurst. The U.K. government also is mulling new rules for the sector.

The Most Flexible Synthesizer is DIY, Raspberry Pi

[Ivan] is trying to create an interesting and easy-to-use empty vessel for you to pour your hardware and software synthesizer dreams into. Everything is open source, and aside from the Pi and the price of potentiometers, this is a dirt-cheap device.

The Mill can program its electric motors to make it behave like the car’s it’s emulating—slow or fast acceleration, gear change lurches, front or rear wheel drive.

Preventive Maintenance Strategy for Data Centers - TechRepublic

In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices. This white paper describes the types of PM services that can help safeguard the uptime of data centers and IT equipment rooms. Various PM methodologies and approaches are discussed. Recommended practices are suggested.

No, Russian Agents Are Not Behind Every Piece of Fake News You See

Has the rise of fake news played into the hands of those who want to spread disinformation? Sure it has. But connecting hundreds of Twitter accounts into a dark web of Russian-controlled agents, along with any website that sits on some poorly thought-out blacklist, seems like the beginnings of a conspiracy theory, rather than a scientific analysis of the problem.

Inside Fidel Castro’s luxurious life on his secret island getaway

For 17 years, Juan Reinaldo Sanchez served as bodyguard to Fidel Castro. But when he became disillusioned with the Cuban dictator’s hypocrisy and tried to retire in 1994, Castro had him thrown in prison. Sanchez made 10 attempts to escape the island, finally making it to the US in 2008. Now he reveals all in his new book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro.” In this excerpt, Sanchez exposes “El Jefe’s” privileged life.

Americans keep looking away from the election’s most alarming story

Part of the Russian operation’s success is that we cannot measure the effect. Did the DNC emails depress the Sanders vote for Clinton? Did the Podesta emails turn off independents? Would voters have responded differently if major media had reported the email releases not as legitimate news but as an intelligence operation by a hostile foreign power aimed at undermining the integrity of U.S. elections? There are no clear answers. But there are certainties: The email operation increased negative stories about Clinton, fueled an immense propaganda attack and diminished coverage of actual issues. The large polling lead Clinton gained after the debates slipped significantly under this barrage of negativity — even before FBI Director James B. Comey’s bombshell .

In the war on fake news, school librarians have a huge role to play

It’s part of what we’re calling information overload. We’re just inundated with so much information it becomes just more difficult to parse out where the quality information is. And these fake news sites are increasingly savvy. We used to talk to students about “How does the website look ? Does it look like you could have done it on your laptop or does it look like there’s a corporation behind it?” We used to and still do look at the url: “Is it a .net, is it a .org?” But these new sites are so savvy, the interfaces can be really slick, and they can look a lot like what we consider to be reputable sources. There’s is also now a lot of manipulation of the domains. I saw something not too long ago that had “” We say that if it has an “edu” it’s a reputable site but there’s that added manipulation with the “.co.” It becomes trickier to identify these deceitful sites right away unless you’re really paying attention and doing due diligence.

Gadgets help you serve better beer, fancy cocktails, ‘aged’ wine at your holiday party

At some point, your guests have to go home, which means they should switch to coffee. There are countless options, and your regular old machine will probably do just fine, but if you want to appease the cold brew lovers, the Bodybrew is a fairly simple, low-tech solution. It’s also another one you have to prepare in advance, but that means less work for you mid-soiree. All you have to do is fill up the basket with coarse grounds, fill the chamber with water, screw everything together, flip it a couple times, and wait 12 to 24 hours depending on how strong you like your brew. You can either serve it cold or add boiling water to make it hot, and you’ll have between 8 and 12 cups of coffee for your guests. Overall, it’s really easy to use (and dishwasher safe!), and my only complaint is that it can be a tad difficult to unscrew the one lid because it’s so wide.

"Do not put in a request unless you are prepared to immediately enter a vehicle. That means make sure your food or bar tab is paid for and that you have exited your venue and are standing on the sidewalk waiting for pickup before you request a ride. If I can do this as a rider, so can you. This will also save you a ton on cancellation fees and/or headaches with Uber on trying to recoup those cancellation fees due to your negligence."

The 100 Best Android Apps of 2016

As the cooler weather rolls in, I like to take this opportunity to do a little fall cleaning. Summer in New York, you see, requires keeping one's windows closed and air conditioning on at all times. I like to extend this time of renewal to my Android devices as well, sometimes going so far as to perform a complete factory reset so I can consider which apps I really need. And that can be a challenge considering that if you looked at an app from Google Play every second, without stopping, it would take more than 23 days to see them all. Hence, this list: A gathering of apps, some new and some old, that represent the very best that Android has to offer.

NES Classic Edition review: The best and worst of retro gaming

Josh stared at me in disbelief. "This is ridiculous," he told me. He's right. The NES Classic makes 8-bit Nintendo games look gorgeous on modern televisions, but its controller cables are too short to allow players to enjoy them from a comfortable distance. Maybe, we mused, it's part of the retro experience: the truncated wiring forced us to sit cross-legged on the floor, just like we did when we were kids -- but we weren't comfortable, and were too close to the 40-inch television to really take-in the whole screen.

Smartwatches and fitness trackers continue to spread, powered by professionals - TechRepublic

Llamas said, "I think corporations are sensing the benefits that wearables can bring. Number one is a healthier workforce, second is low absenteeism and third is greater productivity. They realize there's also a savings cost that can be realized here. One report claimed companies that brought fitness trackers to their workforce were rewarded with 7% in healthcare expense savings. Seven percent is a small number, but if you're a multi-million or multi-billion dollar company, that's a lot of money to be had. So consider that piece. I mean, why do you think Apple also mentioned that they were partnering with Aetna to get watches?"

'Star Wars' smartphone caters to your fandom

Most likely, the biggest obstacle will be availability. Sharp's Star Wars phone goes on sale at SoftBank on December 2nd for ¥97,920 (about $865), and it's unlikely that you'll ever see it officially on sale outside of its home country. As it is, the smartphone would lose some of its appeal if you tried to import it. There's no guarantee that it'll fully support your carrier of choice, and the free movie streaming only works in its native market. Unless you live in Japan, you'll have to make do customizing the phone you already have.
