Based on the desires of intelligent humanoid robots, bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev has taken NIKE‘s air max 1 and roshe run silhouettes and adapted them for the future. Both sneakers have been reworked to maintain their distinct lines and elements, evoking an additional sense of rigidity. The overall aesthetics boast clean and refined color panels, with lacing systems claimed to be more advanced than NIKE’s marty mcfly’s ‘back to the future concept shoes.

Electric Helicopter E-Volo VC200


06 05 03 02 01 general

The E-Volo VC200  has become the first electric helicopter to make a successful maiden flight, with multiple flights lasting several minutes and reaching heights of nearly 22 meters high. Together with 18-rotor blades and a disassemblable architectural system, the volocopter has been designed to host two passengers for distances of up to 100km and a flight altitude of up to 6500 ft. Equipped with an automated control system, the pilot no longer needs to worry about flight conditions: the E-copter is controlled via on-board computers that work in coordination with numerous hi-tech sensors. All parts connect to an intelligent mesh network. In the event of a failure of several components, the low-maintenance aircraft is still able to land safely. The construction of the helicopter integrates six rotor arms with three drives which are supplied from different energy sources. Each is powered by 20 independent computers, capable of individually navigating the volocopter in mid-air. In the current prototype of the VC200, the 18 drives are supplied by six central battery blocks with a reserve capacity of 50%; even when two battery blocks fail, a safe landing is possible.

Hal 9000 Life-Size Replica


HAL-9000-Life-Size-Replica-1

A very famous character from Space Odyssey series, Hal 9000 was a state of the art artificial intelligent system that was designed to control the Discovery One spacecraft. Since, Life-Size Replica of Hal 9000 has been re-created in a wall mounted remote controlled machine based on actual studio blueprints, it’s now inevitable for guys who loved Hal to revitalize their memories they had with it. It triggers Hal’s famous speeches upon pressing a button on IR remote or by talking to him.

The Intelligent Cash Register.


Intelligent Cash Registers. Duh. They remember who you are, they know your “interests.” They know you! Intel is going to unveil this prototype “register” at the National Retail Federation show in New York on Sunday, but they’re really pushing the system, not the hardware. (Although, they do mention the fact that the hardware will use 90 percent less power than modern check-outs. Nothing to scoff at.)

Intel teams with Frog Design for this project. Frog is responsible for the hardware: making this 3-touchscreen terminal work with Intel’s newest processors. The touchscreen works in concert with RFID cards and salespeople (to talk you up on more products the screen shows to be juicy.) The idea is to take the internet’s ability to “up-sell” and apply that to everyday impulse buying.

The best part, (or -only actual good part, for you hippies,) is that these machines fall back asleep when they aren’t active. This accounts for most of the 90-percent less energy spent. And as Wired mentions: “for a retail chain with 5,000 terminals, that’s a serious rebate.”
