Japan's electronics giant Seiko Epson believes its Micro Flying Robot is the world's lightest and smallest robot helicopter.

Weighing
only 8.9 grams, the four-legged mini-copter is equipped with four micro
actuators to drive two rotors and stabilising units that make it fly
and balance in the air.

The prototype version unveiled at the
International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo relies on an external power
source but flies by remote control.

striping zebras

i wish i had more spare time. an interesting opensource project i have been following for quite some time is //zebra. never installed it, would love to get my hands on tree old pc's (mmh, my attic is filed with old pc's) and install 3 routers. since i still master the basic skills of IOS (and even some //undocumented ones:-) )

ibm (i think of it as a cool company with a clear vision) has a good //howto on how to install and configure the boxes.

Zebra is TCP/IP routing software that supports BGP-4, BGP-4+, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, RIPv1, RIPv2, and RIPng. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License and runs on Linux as well as other UNIX variants. Zebra is included in most modern distributions as routing software.

speak dog?

barfif case you have a dog and want to "hear" what (s)he is saying, you could take a look at this //gadget.

  • Understand your dog's emotions with the Bow-Lingual voice
  • Translator

    Monitor your dog's emotions while you're away with the Home Alone function

  • Analyze you dog's body language with the Body Language Interpreter
  • Get useful training tips using the Ten Training Tips function
  • Track your dog's emotions over time with the bark history
  • Check your dog's health and vital signs with the Medical Reference function
as they say, bullshit talks, money walks. 94 pound (as in currency, not in weight of the dog) walking that is!
