Robotic Flying Bird

A very cool solution to an age-old challenge. How do birds fly and can we build something that flies like they do? These guys did it with the help of some new technology.

Wild Water Dancing

This is a very cool machine. Probably more challenging to operate safely than you think, but still very cool.

Wall Carvings Give Portraits New Life

I love discovering artistic works like these. Someone is being freshly creative while making something we’ve seen before.  In this case it’s the portrait that’s getting a fresh look, and the medium of choice is the wall of a decaying building.   A little like the clever carving of a Halloween pumpkin, this is a fun use of city space to be creative. Nicely done.

Wonderful Braille Watch Concept

This just makes so much sense and looks so cool that I want one myself! Here is an article about the folks behind it and how it would work. Very creative and a great example of a Kickstart project that can be supported by anyone who wants to chip in.

A Great Innovator (Francis Rogallo) and an Excellent Writer (Dave Higdon)

This is a well-written piece about aviation pioneer Francis Rogallo. I had never heard of him before and I’m a pilot, so no doubt you haven’t heard of him either.  But if you spend some time with this story you’ll learn both about what goes into innovation and what elegant writing is all about.  Thanks Dave for the story and Francis for the wings.
