1. Fast Pack Swap Event


    from Tesla Motors / Added

    Model S is capable of a fast battery swap, exchanging a depleted battery for a fully charged battery in less than half the time it takes to refill a gas tank. This offers Model S drivers another, even faster option when recharging while driving long distances.

    • Electromagnetic Harvester

      The omnipresence of electromagnetic fields is implied just by simple current flow. We are surrounded by electromagnetic fields which we produce for information transfer or as a by-product of electric infrastructure. Many of those fields are very capacitive and can be harvested with coils and high frequency diodes. Accordingly, I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them and charge a regular battery. Thus you can gain energy from the power supply of a coffee machine, a cell phone or an overhead wire by holding the harvester directly into the electromagnetic field whose strength is visualized by a LED. Depending on the strength of the electromagnetic field it is possible to charge a small battery within one day. The system is meant to be an option for tapping into already existing but unnoted energy sources. By exploring these sources it can create a new awareness of the invisible electromagnetic spaces while giving them a spatial dimension. -- © Dennis Siegel http://dennissiegel.de @dnnssgl

          • DIY Timelapse slider with speed control

            This slider is based on the Igus Drylin slider. I was inspired by another video here on Vimeo, http://vimeo.com/12120373. But, I decided to take it a step further. Sample video here: https://vimeo.com/38747342 A bit slow speed on the slide, but you get to see how it works. Power: 12v lead acid battery An on/off switch was added. I used a 12v DC/DC adapter with voltage control to control the motors speed. This way, I am able to control the speed in incremental values. Example: At max output (12v) the motor drags the camera across the slider rail in about 8 minutes. At 6v it uses twice that, about 16 minutes. The lowest setting on the adapter is 1.5v, which gives a ride that lasts over an hour. Everything built into plastic casing. I used the same motor as STYLE43, a 2rpm 12v DC motor. Fishing line was also used to pull the car on the rail. An intervalometer (timer remote) is used to control the exposure interval (and amount, if needed). Music: Sheridan Tongue - Symphony of Light Shots: Video: Canon EOS 7D / EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L Timelapse: Canon EOS 5D / EF 17-40 f/4 L and GoPro HD Hero. Sorry for glitchy video and sensor dust spots. Wont happen next time. Featured on the great diyphotography.net blog! http://www.diyphotography.net/automating-your-slider-for-about-20-bucks

                The Everpurse has changed our lives and the lives of dozens of women who are happily using our prototypes. So how would the regular Jane and Joe react when we show them an Everpurse? This video will show you. All of these individuals have never seen an Everpurse before, they no nothing about the technology and they are simply asked to see a demonstration of how the Everpurse works. Delight ensues.

                    fret_1, a symbiosis of abstract animation and sound. Music & Sound by Gerrit Elbrink Animation by Uwe Schweer-Lambers Watch the project-breakdown-tutorials (Cinema 4D, After Effects): http://vimeo.com/21460056 & http://vimeo.com/27290950 ::::Project Notes:::: // Uwe originally created the video based on the Autechre track "Vose In". After showing the video to Leisure, both gentlemen figured that a change of tune might not be a bad idea. // Uwe (Equiloud) : "I personally very much appreciate geometric primitives. They have a certain perfection to them and appear very statical. So why not play around with them and make them more vivid somehow, and with that more interesting for a broader audience? How can I do it, and make other people enjoy it as well? Within a couple of months, my efforts evolved themselves into fret_1. After I met Gerrit I was hoping he could create an alternative audiotrack for it. Well, he did! And this is our cooperation´s result. Hope you like it! (we do)." // Leisure-B: "Even though I very much appreciate Autechre, the sound that they have and the thing that they do live on stage mainly as well, I felt that this video needed a little more than the sometimes overwhelmingly monotone style that they often bring. By taking a very "sound design" like approach to the composition, I hoped to take the feel animation one step higher.
