Apple Sport Watch teardown by the iFixit team.

iFixit started by prying open the display and disconnecting the display and digitizer cables underneath, getting a first look at the Taptic Engine, inside of the Digital Crown and internal 205 mAh battery. Digging further into the Apple Watch, the team got a closer look at various components for haptic feedback, an ambient light sensor and S1 integrated processor.

The Pro Tech Screwdriver Kit will cover all your screw driver needs. (Unless you need those super tiny tri-wing bits seen in the Apple Watch.

Atlas Humanoid Robot and DARPA’s Robotic Challenge

July 15, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Atlas is one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built, but is essentially a physical shell for the software brains and nerves that the teams will continue to develop and refine. That software, and the actions of a human operator through a control unit, will guide the suite of sensors, actuators, joints and limbs that make up the robot.

Atlas, developed by Boston Dynamics, is one of many robots being developed to complete the physical tasks planned for the DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials.

A Shift to Gestural User Experience with 3Gear Systems

June 29, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Interactive tools for creative development, using a PrimeSense short-range 3D sensor tracking hand gestures to improve your desktop user experience.

The technology enables 3D cameras based on the Kinect to reconstruct a finger-precise representation of what the hands are doing. This allows the building of simple and intuitive interactions that leverage small, comfortable gestures such as pinching and small wrist movements instead of sweeping arm motions.
