PR2 Robot Programmed As Smart Beer Fetcher | July 16th, 2010 | A PR2 humanoid, which brings you, your choice of beer and just when you want, is here. Who wouldn’t want to jump at the idea of having your friends over for a game night or girl’s night and enjoy with them rather than running to fetching beer every time they ask for it?

So people at the Willow Garage hacked their PR2 humanoid platform to make it deliver chilled beer of your choice. If that’s not all, the droid even opens the fridge when you click the beer me button, looks at the available selection and pick the beer of your choice, puts it in a delivery tray mounted to its base and close the fridge door behind it while it makes his way towards you before popping open the beer bottles. If your beer selection is unavailable, PR2 will alert you and let you pick another beer.

Creepy Looking Monkfish | The monkfish, known variously as the goosefish, anglerfish, or "allmouth," is a large, ugly, benthic (bottom-dwelling) fish found in the coastal Atlantic area. Its size ranges up to about three feet, and its body is composed mainly of a huge, gaping mouth attached to a muscular tail. The monkfish is an anglerfish; its spine ends in a flexible, extensible cord which it dangles for use as a fishing lure.

Along with the Atlantic monkfish, Lophius americanus, there is also a European version, L. piscatorius, that can be found in northern European waters, especially near the Shetland Islands. Both species are popular as food fish.

MANDY SELLARS, A British Woman with Gigantic Legs | September 20, 2008 | Russian woman Svetlana Pankrtova stunned the world for her longest legs of any woman recognized by Guinness World Records. British woman Mandy Sellars now also attracted the similar international attention for her own (gigantic) legs, but apparently the latter is not as lucky as the former.

Mandy Sellars (pictured here), 33, from Lancashire of England, may be suffering from an extremely rare disease called Proteus syndrome [wikipedia] that left two of her legs weighing 92-98kg out of total body weight about 130kg. What’s the worse, the abnormal legs never stops growing, and one day, they may have to be amputated.

Peraves Monotracer | Sunday, August 02, 2009 | This is the latest in a regular feature where I choose, at random, from the alluring designs out there in the experimental field of personal locomotion ... and this one's really gorgeous.

MonoTracer is a unique 'cabin motorcycle' design that the company Peraves claims is (compared to a normal sports car) "twice as much fun for half the gas". Inside, there's air conditioning, two inline seats and a top speed of 200kph or so. The drag co-efficient of this thing is phenomenally low @ 0.18 (it'd be even sleaker if they got the rest of those retractable wheels into the body, I bet).

The Highest Tennis Court In The World | Oct 11 2008 | one of the world's most luxurious hotels - aside from all the mystique and wealth it's known for, also has the highest tennis court in the world. Its space, located at 210 metres of altitude can also become a heliport for emergency landings or guest traffic.

Another extravagance from this sumptuous hotel, in Dubai, to which very few mortals have access. I confess, even if I was given access to it, I would have some difficulty in running around after a tennis ball at 210 metres above the ground. (Nino Guevara Ruwano)

Robotic Wheelchair That Follows Humans | August 16th, 2010 | The basic difficulty with the wheelchair’s operation and movement control has been made surpisingly simple through the introduction of the Robotic Wheelchair, a design of the Saitama University’s Human-Robot Interaction Center.

With this robotic wheelchair, the person sitting in the chair does not need to operate it with his or her hands, nor does an attendant needs to supply any physical labor to pull and push the chair for his or her ward. Instead, the wheelchair moves automatically with the person who is walking alongside of it. This wheelchair is programmed to respond to the movement of the person walking with it and it can even anticipate the way in which the person will move next.

China's '3D Fast Bus' | August, 3rd 2010 | What if there was a way to get most of the benefits of a subway, but without the costs of digging up all those tunnels?

The Chinese company Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Co. thinks it might be able to do just that with a concept it calls the 3D Fast Bus (which has also been called the straddling bus), and kind of giant bus/train that straddles the street and allows cars to drive right under it.

This means that it isn't slowed down by traffic and it doesn't add to traffic either. Read on for more details and a video showing a rendering of the 3D Fast Bus in action.

Filtered Water, Ready In 2 Minutes | August, 5th 2010 | Most portable water filters use carbon filters, special membranes with microscopic openings, or chemicals like chlorine or iodine to clean the water and make it save for drinking. However, one of the best systems for purifying water is actually with ultraviolet light.

But how do you get an ultraviolet light purification system into a small portable water bottle that can be used anywhere? One design and technology graduate has figured it out, and already won the UK branch of the prestigious James Dyson Award for his invention.
