reaDIYmate

Creators Marc Chareyron and Olivier Mével say there are two main types of ReaDIYmate, a Paper Toy Edition (think cute paper robot) and a Kinetic Sculpture Edition (a DIY art piece) but that both offer similar functionality – which also includes being able to receive a sound from a friend or to be controlled remotely by an iPhone.

Conceptual 'CTRUS' football gets loaded with sensors, don't need no pump

Conceptual 'CTRUS' football gets loaded with sensors, don't need no pump | Web of Things | Scoop.it

We've heard of soccer balls that play a tune when kicked, sure, and we're pumped to see the World Cup in 3D, but it's not often that someone comes up with a serious technological makeover for the sport that's nearly as old as life itself. CTRUS, however, is just that -- a theoretical revolution in soccer that begins with the all-important ball. To start with, a reinforced elastic structure means that CTRUS doesn't require any air. (So long, pump.) Next, GPS and RFID chips keep track of the ball's position at all times, and tell it to light up in different colors when it scores a goal or is accomplice to a nefarious violation. (Farewell, referee.) Last but not least, the sphere itself will report back with accelerometers that measure the ball's kick force and travel speed, and a camera that could (with magical software stabilization, of course) actually film action from the ball's own POV.
