Upgrade your meeting room with an interactive whiteboard

Digitally enabling your standard whiteboard could add a whole new element to your group design meetings

Getting the team around the design office whiteboard is still one of the best ways to collaborate on a project, but now might be the time to move it - like your workflow - into the digital world.

It can be a costly change - 84”, 4k, E-LED, multi-touch displays are simply stunning, but beauty comes at a price - so Steljes has brought in a more cost effective option that the majority of design bureaux can benefit from.

The SMART LightRaise 60wi2 interactive projector turns standard whiteboards into digital workspaces, giving four touch/dual gesture capability and includes SMART MeetingPro software to annotate over presentations.

Look familiar? The Aero-X seems to have taken design cues from the original Star Wars’ Speeder Bike

The flying car is almost here with AeroFex‘s announcement that in 2017 its flagship Aero-X hoverbike will go on sale.

Aero-X, which was unveiled in 2012, rides like an off-road motorcycle. But, unlike a motorcycle, it leaves the ground flying up to 10 feet at 45 miles per hour.

Although not specifically designed for the daily commute, it can carry two people across open terrain and used for things like surveying, search and rescue, border patrol, disaster relief, aerial agricultural, ranching etc.

HP launch PageWide large format printing - a clue to its 3D printing future?

HP’s new page-wide inkjet printing technology could be key to its 3D printing ambitions

Inkjet Large Format Printing (LFP) technology is changing fast with HP launching the prototype of its first page-wide inkjet machine that will transform the 2D printing market.

Using a scalable number of printheads that nest together in one long line, when launched in the second half of 2015, HP’s 40” PageWide-branded colour inkjet machine will print at the same speed as its monochrome laser printers rivals.

If you’re not aware, that is seriously quick for accurate full colour, and given that the wait for such technology was based around getting the chemistry and mechanics right, would it be wrong to expect this ability to transfer to a 3D printer?

Shake your power: musical instrument that creates electricity

SPARK is a musical instrument that generates enough kinetic energy to power a light or charge a phone

To get light you simply flick a switch, right? In many developing countries this isn’t always the case; for instance, 75 per cent of Kenya’s population live without access to electricity.

Given our ever increasing reliance on devices such as mobile phones and computers at work, it’s an incredible statistic to try an imagine.

Sudha Kheterpal, a professional percussionist who has toured the world with bands such as Faithless and The Spice Girls, has come up with a bright idea: SPARK, a prototype percussion shaker that converts kinetic energy generated from shaking into useable electricity.
