The World’s First Electric Multicopter Flight

Multicopter

In late October, German engineer and founder of e-Volo, Thomas Senkel, flew for the first time in an aircraft called the multicopter.

The e-Volo multicopter has not less than 16 electric motors, as many propellers, and a weight (without load) of 80 kg including the electric batteries. The method used to build e-Volo is absolutely trivial: light metal structure made of aluminum, some lithium-ion […]

3D iPad Made Possible With A Metal Cylinder

Anamorphicons iPad

They noticed that anamorphosis can be used to project data onto a 3D object, by placing a 3D object on a 2D data, this is how they developed this interactive system. Unlike an ordinary mirror anamorphosis, in this system, you rotate a cylindrical mirror on the iPad so that objects reflected in the mirror also rotate.
