            "Deck The Screens" (@DeckTheScreens) is a fun little holiday app from the folks at Deeplocal. It lets you string holiday lights between all of your screens. Just create a new set of lights, share your code with some friends or co-workers (it works best if everyone is in the same physical location), and watch the lights go. We put this together in a hurry as a fun excuse to play with some new technologies so if you run into any trouble, bear with us. You know how these lights are, one light can mess up the whole thing. Or, if you like what you see and want to know more about us, definitely let us know.

              • 'Making of' the Conan Hugging Loveseat


                from deeplocal Added 2,036 11 0

                The Conan Hugging Loveseat is the first fully-robotic hugging loveseat. Visitors can relax on the Loveseat and let Conan listen to their concerns, express his love (yes, the couch actually talks), offer a relaxing back and bottom massage, and extend a warm embrace. Participants can bring a friend or come alone; we'll capture the moment with a souvenir photo. Lucky participants win Team Coco gear, while supplies last. Designed and built by Deeplocal, the Conan Hugging Loveseat is 500 pounds of pure love. However, behind the soft embrace is a lot of heavy machinery. Inside the steel frame are two industrial motor controllers and four industrial linear actuators, creating 250 pounds of strength per joint. Though the couch is immobile, it features many aspects of an advanced mobile robot, including steel/aluminum frame construction, linear actuators, motor controllers, microprocessors, AGM batteries, and wifi communication. With the simple addition of wheels, it would be possible to drive it around like a remote controlled car (but don't tell Conan that).

                  Built for Toyota Prius Projects, we created a futuristic concept bike that allows users to shift gears with their minds. The custom bike helmet is outfitted with a neuro headset to detect the brain's electrical signals and communicate with the gear-shifting mechanism. This project received extensive media coverage in Fast Company, Wired, Creativity, ABC News, LA Times, CNET, Engadget, NOTCOT, Inhabitat, and more.

                    Not long ago, Toyota asked the public to imagine new ideas for using Toyota's technology to benefit humanity. Now, after a weekend in June, five of those ideas have been made real. See how Deeplocal and CMU engineers worked with the Ideas for Good winners to transform their ideas into working prototypes.
