    Intel Galileo : Compatible with Arduino software and shields

    When every one is gaga on PI, Intel introducing the Galileo development board, the first product in a new family of Arduino*-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture. The platform is easy to use for new designers and for those looking to take designs to the next level. Intel recognizes that the people who take creating beautiful things into their own hands with innovation and technology are the same ones that propel us forward. The other big feature of Galileo is that it is compatible with Arduino software and shields, making it a great target for students and educators in the maker scene. And what more, Intel is donating 50,000 Arduino compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture to 1,000 universities around the world over the next 18 months.

    AquatiCo – Anyone can control a real submarine over the internet

    “People will protect what they love, and they love what they know,” says robotics engineer Eduardo Labarca, paraphrasing Jacques Cousteau. That’s why he and his team at Mountain View, California-based 9th Sense Robotics want to start up an online marine exploration project known as AcquatiCo. If it reaches fruition, it will allow computer users anywhere in the world to control an actual ocean-based submarine, while watching a real-time feed from its onboard video camera.

    Smart bra acts as alarm for breast cancer

    We’ve previously seen bras that monitor a wearer’s heart rate, double as an emergency facemask, or help women search for a husband. But the BSE (breast self exam) bra being developed by First Warning Systems looks to be the best bit of added functionality for the support undergarment we’ve come across yet. Using sensors integrated into the cups, the bra looks for the slight variations in temperature on the

    NASA develops exoskeleton

    What do astronauts on a mission to Mars and earthbound paraplegics have in common? Enough that NASA is developing a robotic exoskeleton for both of them. Called the X1 Robotic Exoskeleton, it’s derived in part from NASA’s Robonaut 2 humanoid robot now undergoing trials aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The X1 uses robotic technology for a dual-use exoskeleton that has applications for both astronauts on long space missions and the walking impaired on Earth.
