We haven’t heard anything about AIST Japan’s HRP humanoid robot line for a while. The new version, the very industrial-looking HRP-5P has some cool skills. It looks a lot like Boston Dynamics’ ATLAS, which sports a similar framework body.
Guys, your wife or significant other might not tell you this, but your screwing game probably needs some help. Lots of people have performance issues when it comes to screwing – things like difficulty getting into the hole, or maybe you keep sliding the shaft at the wrong angle and hitting the wrong hole.
Last month we featured the Dobot, a precise robotic arm that can plot, laser engrave and pick and place objects. But if you’re looking for something even more versatile, the Makerarm might be for you. It can also draw, use a laser head and assemble objects, but you can also use it as a 3D printer, a PCB fabricator, a soldering station and even a screwdriver.
There are many different screw head types. Like those screw heads on game consoles that are designed to keep you out. Those should have grump faces to represent them, whereas Yuma Kano’s design is all about fun.
Forget the cork. A real man uses tools to protect his wine and keep it fresh. This technique was probably discovered when some guy was enjoying a glass of wine in the tool shed and simply used what he had on hand.
Can you still steal a car and drive away with it by jamming a screwdriver into the ignition? I’m not sure about that, but what I’m sure of is that you can drive a car with a screwdriver jammed into the ignition – provided a duplicate of your car key has been soldered right at the very end of the aforementioned tool.
A couple of months ago we saw a handgun that looks like an electric drill. Here’s the complete opposite, a electric screwdriver that looks like a handgun. Those poor shelves and cabinets won’t know what hit ’em.
Most of us already have enough screwdrivers and multi-tools to fill an entire toolbox or utility drawer. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have just one more, right? Especially one that looks like a tiny tank.
There are seemingly thousands of different multitools on the market, but I can never decide which one I should buy. Now, my decision might have just gotten easier, thanks to Gerber’s Steady Tool, which adds a handy tripod to their latest pocket-sized tool.
I admit that I have a bunch of tools around the house and I can only find half of them. Every time I need a tool, it’s generally the basic screwdriver or hammer that I am on the hunt for and just can’t find.
It’s a drag to be at some formal event and have those darned colors go flip and flop all over the place. Not only will earn you reprimanding looks from the older people (hint: grandmothers and great grand aunts who always have a snarky comment ready to throw at you), it also looks, well, tacky.
If you’re a fan of Doctor Who and happen to have a Nintendo DS, you’re in luck. This new case for the DS not only comes emblazoned with imagery from the latest season of the Doctor (including Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor, surrounded by Daleks) but it comes with a handy stylus based on the Doc’s Sonic Screwdriver.
