Big Ass Robot!


A year ago VICE founder Suroosh Alvi recently traveled to Gunpo, South Korea, to try out the Method 2 prototype, a hulking manned robot made by Hankook Mirae Technology. Weighing in at over one and a half tons, and standing 13 feet tall, the Method 2 looks like something out of science fiction. 

Specifically, this exoskeleton robot looks like something you’ve seen in a movie, and that’s by design: Hankook Mirae Chairman Yang Jin-Ho and his team collaborated with a Hollywood designer to make the Method-2.

Jin-Ho spent $200 million of his own money on the project, and claims his creation is the world’s first manned bipedal robot. 

The robot is designed to mimic hand and arm movements, and is suspended by two metal cabals in the ceiling to keep it balanced.

So far the Method-2 is only used for fun, but its creator envisions it will play a critical role in future crises. 

“It’s more likely it’ll be used in fires and disaster relief situations,” Jin-Ho said. “But also find application in military operations.” Check out the video below!

Yes, you read that correctly.


NASA just made their entire media library free to use without copyright. It includes their entire collection of images, sounds, and video all searchable by subject here. More than 140,000 photos and other resources available for you to download and use it any way you choose.


This is an amazing resource if you are an artist, filmmaker, sculptor, historian, writer or just enjoy space exploration.

Promoted as "THE WORLD'S FIRST ALL ELECTRIC, PERSONAL FLYING MACHINE." The Hexa sure looks interesting and very different from other Personal Flying Machines. This comes to us from a company called Lift Aircraft out of Austin Texas



DISTRIBUTED ELECTRIC PROPULSION

Eighteen independent electric motors and propellers are the only moving parts needed for perfectly stable, controlled flight. 

AMPHIBIOUS

Four perimeter floats provide stability while a large central float provides buoyancy for safe water landings.

SIMPLE TO FLY


A triply redundant autopilot computer with a single, 3-axis joystick is all that is needed to fly. Or tap on the seven inch touchscreen in "Look mom, no hands!" mode.

Check out the video below to see for yourself.

We've covered quite a few interesting robots over the years, but this one is quite amazing. It's not bipedal, or four legged but almost manta ray in nature. It can skate on ice, snow, swim and move on land. This is the type of probe you want to send to a new planet for discoveries.

This Robot is Pliant Energy's Velox robot which is a beautiful swimmer than can leave the water and travel across sand, pebbles, paving, grass and even ice.

Applications

Highly maneuverable autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) or remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that can move from land to sea and back with ease. Ideal for surf zone, amphibious beach missions and polar ice missions

Personal propulsion for professional divers and recreational use

Stand-alone thruster to replace propellers on craft in environmentally-sensitive waters such as coral reefs, mangroves and sea grass beds

Stand-alone thruster to replace propellers on craft in debris-filled waters

If you haven't heard of Inktober before here's the scoop. An artist named Jake Parker decided in 2009 to make a little challenge for himself to draw and ink everyday in the month of October and he encouraged others to join him. Here we are 9 years later and it's still going strong. Jake puts out what he calls a prompt list, a jumping off point if you will for inspiration of art each day. There is no right or wrong here, only art. So I have participated for a few years now.

I am finally getting around to scanning my own artwork and uploading it here. Below you will see my entries this year. I will update this as I scan more work.

1. Poisonous

I'm going to try to relate all of my pieces to my Grasspeople project, a fantasy adventure. I'll do my best to have a new one each day. This is a cute little scamp known as the stinger mouse. Be careful where you step.
2. Tranquil

This is the Terrace Falls, near Quadnoc, many miles away from the Grasslands.

3. Roasted

4. Spell

5. Chicken

The indigenous creatures known as the Cheks or Chicken Warriors were searching the black river banks for a small flower known for its healing power. There is safety in numbers because this is home to the Grizzivolous which are vicious hunters.

6. Drooling

Grizzivolous is hungry and hunting on the banks of the Black river.

7. Exhausted

Exhausted. Monks ongoing search for traces of his family led him nowhere. Thoroughly exhausted, he decided to nap in the grass fields not far from the Black river.

8. Star

As Monk fell into a deep sleep, he began dreaming under the stars about the simpler times of his youth.


9. Precious

10. Flowing


11. Cruel


12. Whale


13. Guarded


14. Clock


15. Weak


16. Angular

Future vision concept art of room scale holographic display from Light Field Lab, Inc.


OTOY (Octane Rendering) is teaming up with startup Light Field Lab to build holographic content. Light Field Lab raised $7 million this year to complete a prototype of a display technology which is similar to Star Trek’s holodeck. Light Field Lab’s Holographic tech will be installed in the walls of a room to immerse multiple people in virtual worlds without any headgear. 

According to Light Field Lab’s CEO Jon Karafin they’ve been demonstrating prototypes already this year with “No headgear, no head-tracking, no vergence/accommodation conflict, no motion latency, no headaches or eye strain, nor other artifacts associated with other non-holographic technologies,” Karafin wrote in an email. “The panels are flat panel, solid state and directly emissive— meaning there are no moving parts or arrays of projectors or cumbersome accessories. When you see the holographic objects with the prototype system, your eye naturally focuses on the actual object in space, and your brain tells you it’s floating right there in front of you — because it is a dense holographic projection with converging ray bundles that form real images.  The current prototype represents the foundational building block that produces large format panels, walls, and surfaces as we head into manufacturing next year.”

The founder of OTOY Jules Urbach also has a goal of creating Star Trek’s holodeck. OTOY (Octane Rendering) is used by film industry professionals to create hyper realistic scenes like the opening sequence of Westworld. Now imagine walking into a room not knowing any of this.

This!


It was another amazing year at New York Comic Con! The artists finally get a proper set up after the convention center went through a renovation last year. With that said, there were so many new and exciting reveals. Follow along as I finally get to edit and update all the pictures from NYCC 2018.


One thing is certain, TV and Video Games dominated this years Con. There was an incredible turn out of TV networks like Netflix and HBO with a Game of Thrones pop up.


That didn't stop fans from doing what they do best! Cosplay, Comics and a massive amount of geek merchandising.


Jason, Jason everywhere...


Even on opening day, there is an intense amount of people attending this year.


Every year the Cosplay costumes get more and more detailed.


I've taken hundreds of photos this year, and I will continue to post them at the bottom of the page if you want to check back.




Venom everywhere...
