Pilot View FPV 2400" Realtime First Person Video Camera

PilotViewFPV offers a breakthrough in the way you fly radio controlled aircraft. With this system you will be flying from the cockpit of your own model! Camera with transmitter weighs only 35 grams (1.24 ounces)! Have you ever dreamed of climbing into the cockpit with the Blue Angels? Well, now you can! The PilotViewFPV system was designed for use in radio controlled model aircraft, but that is only the beginning as far as possible uses. PilotViewFPV may be used in radio controlled cars and boats, and helium balloons and kites present exciting possibilities. Extreme sports participants in skydiving, snowboarding, and mountain biking can now share their experiences real time with friends and family! The future is here now.

Korean researchers build cheaper, better solar cell

A team of Korean researchers has developed a cutting-edge solar cell that might help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

The discovery could make Korea a leader in the alternative energy industry as the research team plans to double the cell's efficiency and commercialize the technology by 2012.

The team's leader, Lee Kwang-hee of the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, said on Thursday, "Together with Prof. Alan Heeger at the University of California Santa Barbara, we have developed a plastic solar cell with 6.5 percent efficiency. That level of efficiency is sufficiently high for commercial products." The discovery was explained in the July 13 issue of Science, one of the world's most prestigious academic journals.

Existing solar cells that use silicon semiconductors cost US$2.30 to generate one watt of electricity, which is three to 10 times higher than the production cost of thermal or hydro power. The new plastic solar cell costs just ten cents per watt.

"The efficiency of converting solar power to electricity should be at least seven percent for commercialization. Many foreign researchers even failed to develop solar cells with more than five percent efficiency," Prof. Lee said.

"We're going to improve the efficiency up to 15 percent, and we're in talks to join hands with domestic electronics companies to market the solar cell by 2012," he said.

Solid freeform fabrication: DIY 3D printer, on the cheap, and made of pure sugar

In February we gave a preview of our project to construct a home-built three dimensional fabricator. Our design goals were (1) a low cost design leveraging recycled components (2) large printable volume emphasized over high resolution, and (3) ability to use low-cost printing media including granulated sugar. We are extremely pleased to be able to report that it has been a success: Our three dimensional fabricator is now fully operational and we have used it to print several large, low-resolution, objects out of pure sugar.
