Cute Micro Home Theater

I would pet it all day long.

Micro Size Does Not Mean Micro Sound This system is for the home theater enthusiast who wants the sound to be heard and not seen. Sony has amazingly reduced the size of high-quality sound with these golf-ball size speakers, which handle only the highest frequencies. The mid-range and bass frequencies are provided by the 2-way subwoofer unit with its dual 100-watt amplifiers. This combination provides extremely good imaging, making viewers believe they are surrounded by full-range speakers.

Motion Home Movie Seat

motion cinema seat

With the help of Motion Code seats you won’t sit still while watching a movie. But be warned, you might get so addicted that you won’t be able to watch a film without it anymore.

D-BOX™ Motion controllers are the control center of the D-BOX™ Integrated Motion System (IMS). Through a simple-to-use connection to your DVD or Blu-ray player, and your choice of motion platform, you can enjoy the complete D-BOX™ experience in your home. As the motion controller identifies the movie in your DVD or Blu-ray player, it plays the corresponding D-BOX™ MOTION CODE™ to synchronize the action on your screen to the D-BOX™ seating actuators.

As the movie plays, the actuators respond to the commands providing 2- or 3-axis motion to your seat or platform. Each D-BOX™ motion controller can be used with up to four separate seating areas. Multiple motion controllers can be configured to a myriad of motion-activated seating options. The D-BOX™ MOTION CODE™ updates can be automatically downloaded from the web or installed from a CD or a DVD. Motion controllers are available in two configurations: the 340C Standalone controller and the PC3 motion controller interface.

Flying Star Wars X-Wing Model

flying x wing

Just found this awesome story on Gizmodo:

We decided to make the project to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Star Wars movie. Our club members are making several Star Wars based projects to fly at Plaster Blaster VI, or Plaster Wars. We decided to make the project challenging in several ways. The first is just the massive size of the rocket. It is over 21’ long, with a wingspan of over 19’.

We opted to use a cluster of four motors to emulate the “real” X-wing, and positioned the motors in the wing pods. The real challenge was to make the wings move in flight, from the “attack” position, or extended to the “landing” position, or folded. This proved to be quite a mechanical feat. We started be laying out the rear fuselage section and wing root sections in CAD, then had RMS Laser and Routing Services CNC route all the fuselage and wing root components.

The fuselage ends and wing root sections are cut from 3/4″ Baltic Birch, while the internal stricture is cut from 3/8″ Baltic Birch. The “wing box” assembly, or center of the fuselage, contains the electrical motor and gear / chain drive system that moves the wings, along with the center supports for the wing panels.
