it's not rocket science

really it isn't

i picked up a contract asking me to investigate several sites with a rover and determine which one was producing some anomalous readings. my solution was to design an intercontinental rocket carrying a slightly modified Tereshkova I (the change being the addition of parachutes).

Scientists have developed a material so dark, you can’t even see it — Here’s how it will be used

British company Surrey NanoSystems has developed Vantablack, a material that absorbs all but 0.035% of visual light. It is so dark that the human eye is incapable of seeing it accurately, making contours and folds in the material imperceptible. According to the firm’s CTO Ben Jensen, “You expect to see the hills and all you can see … it’s like black, like a hole, like there’s nothing there. It just looks so strange.”

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

i’ve been wanting to do this for a while, so i finally buckled down and tried to make an aquamobile! i adapted the design from my all-purpose Tereshkova rover, and i was delighted to find out just how naturally the framework lent itself to a pontoon-based design.
