Lockheed Martin’s Samarai Micro Air Vehicle Flies with only Two Moving Parts!

Samarai-micro-air-vehicle

Last week we saw world’s first bird robot that actually flies like a real bird. Well, do you think someone can do a little bit better?

The answer is yes, Lockheed Martin, largest private company in the U.S. that makes missiles for the U.S. government (and also my friend’s dad used to work at) shows off their latest “micro” air vehicle that flies using only two moving parts and weighs less than half a pound.

Incredible or do you think this is useless?

Here’s an incredible hacking machine of the decade you will ever see, it’s a 14-pound, six-foot long, six-foot wingspan unmanned aerial vehicle built by Mike Tassey and Richard Perkins that can crack WiFi while flying in air and also intercept GSM calls from carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T.

What uses for this WASP?

This could be applied in many areas of spying on terrorists. Without them knowing, the drone can intercept their phone calls, SMS text messages, and even know every website they’ve visited.

See video of WASP in action here:

Do you ever wonder one day being able to play virtual simulation golf with your buddies in mid-flight to Asia somewhere?

Well, here’s a proof of concept on future of airplanes that shows you exactly that.  I do have doubts though, the way airline industry being run currently, there’s no way economy class is going to get any better than it is right now, airline industry makes way too much more money by putting passengers in overly-cramped seats for the next 100 years.  And talk about how it’s not really improved over the last 50 years.   But for those of y

Boeing 747-8 Brake Performance!

747-8-brakes

Here’s a really interesting story of the Boeing 747-8 brake testing and performance, which utilizes 100% worn-out brakes on a 975,000-pound airplane. (That’s almost a million pounds!)

In April, the Boeing Test & Evaluation team brought the 747-8 Freighter to a long runway in California to simulate the ultimate rejected takeoff (RTO). Crews loaded the airplane above its maximum takeoff weight of 975,000 pounds (443,181 kilograms) and installed a set of 100% worn-

Four Quadrocopters Fly in Sync!

quadrocopters

Probably the tightest flying RC that I have seen with precision and control is the Hexacopter.  Hexacopter is basically like a helicopter but with 6 blades instead of one.

Of course, there’s also quadrocopter, which uses 4 blades.  You are about to see the most fabulous synchronization of four quadrocopters moving in perfect sync and harmony.  You could probably build an autonomous war machine with this, pretty darn cool I’d say.

You will have to amaze your own e
