One of Iron Man 3′s defining action scenes is the so-called “barrel of monkeys” scene (minor spoilers ahead), in which Tony Stark saves the passengers of Air Force One after a hole is blown in it at 30,000 feet. While it’s a scene that may stretch the laws of physics, it’s also one of the film’s high points — two minutes of edge-of-the-seat drama and visual effects spender. The Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex blog breaks the whole scene down, covering both VFX needed to pull it off as well as the stunts that made it look so convincing. For starters, those falling passengers were skydivers from Red Bull’s skydiving team, with their gear and parachutes removed in post-production. “It’s something that’s incredibly difficult to fake —…

Marvel Studios might have secured a product placement bargain for Iron Man 3 with China’s TCL, however that does not suggest that the studio is disregarding standard, all-American promo. Take the brand-new 30-second Super Bowl area, for example, where Tony Stark plucks falling travelers out of the sky in the aftermath of an air disaster.
The video below is a prolonged variation which combines the new footage with some that’s been seen formerly, along with an introduction where– real to the celebration– Robert Downey Jr. tries to run down the clock. Iron Guy 3 will be out in movie theaters on May 3rd.

Singularity & Co aims to rescue near-extinct 20th century sci-fi titles to ensure they still exist in the next one. Established from a Kickstarter campaign, the small team has already digitized and published A Plunge Into Space and The Torch, both with new cover art, while its third title required a thousand-mile journey to scan its contents from a university archive. While Mr. Stranger’s Sealed Packet is out of copyright, many education establishments weren’t willing to let anyone scan its edition of such rare books. Talking to Ars Technica, Ash Kalb added: “If you’re part of that university or that consortium then you have access to that book. If you don’t then you don’t.” The republishing group, which ensures it doesn’t tread on any existing copyright toes, also offers up a better deal to authors and author estates, in addition to reviving interest in long-gone books. Singularity and Co’s now opened its bricks-and-mortar doors in Brooklyn, or you grab more details and updates on their progress at the source below.
Here is my collection of Disney Pixar Fire Trucks including 2 diecast fire trucks and 1 Shake and Go Rescue Squad Mater Fire Truck. I bought the Cars Red the Fire Truck at the Disney Store it is 1:43 scale. Although Red the fire truck is on a larger scale than your normal 1:55 diecast, he does not seem abnormally large because he is a fire truck, and trucks tend to be large anyway. I purchased the Shake n Go Rescue Squad Mater on Amazon for a really good price. Finally, I got the small diecast (1:55 scale) Fire Truck Mater on Craigslist. Craigslist is the best place to buy Disney Pixar die-cast cars for cheap. Red is a fire truck from the original movie Cars. He is very shy and initially did not like Lightning McQueen, but eventually took a liking to him. Mater even mentions in the movie that Red does not like Lightning. Red may not be a fire truck of many words, but what he doesn’t say, he shows through his generous actions. He mostly cries during the movie, which is a funny play on a fire truck since they do work with water. Whether its putting out a tire fire or caring for the beautiful flowers, Red is there to support and protect his beloved town. Red, the fire truck, takes negative comments on the town very personally. So if you have something bad to say about Radiator Springs, you’d better watch out, because if there’s one thing Red’s not afraid of, it’s his emotions. Red reappears in Cars 2. In Cars, he was voiced by Joe Ranft who passed away in 2005. However, Red …

Please give me 3 practical applications of robotics in rescue operations in disaster stricken areas?
Question by Jake: Please give me 3 practical applications of robotics in rescue operations in disaster stricken areas?
Answer by Sexxxy.Beast69
You’ve got to be kidding me. I’ve been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It’s just common sense.

Sources close to former RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie have revealed his plans to save the company before he was shown the door, a plan that didn’t involve handsets. He’d entered into talks with AT&T, Verizon and several European carriers to offer them use of the company’s BlackBerry-exclusive network to provide limited data plans to featurephone users that included social networking and BBM — with the aim of reducing the cellphone operators data burden and coaxing users to upgrade to smartphones. The company was working on Mobile Fusion; software that allowed enterprise and government users on iOS and Android devices to join RIM’s system, which reportedly earns the company $ 1 billion per quarter. However, while talks progressed, company execs grew nervous and ousted him in favor of Thorsten Heins with a mandate to focus on BB10 and new devices rather than turning RIM into a service company. However, given that it’s still losing money on its handset business, Heins has reopened the door to Balsillie’s plan. It’s just a shame Balsillie himself is keeping quiet, as we’d love to hear his thoughts in an executive-level edition of How Would you Change.
“There is no lead robot, yet each unit is capable of recruiting other units to make sure the entire area is explored. When the first robot comes to an intersection, it says to a second robot, ‘I’m going to go to the left if you go to the right.’”
This egalitarian robot army is the spawn of a research initiative known as the Micro Autonomous Systems and Technology (MAST) Collaborative Technology Alliance Program, sponsored by the US Army Research Laboratory. The ultimate goal is to shrink the bots down even further and to expand their capabilities. Engineers have already begun integrating infrared sensors into their design and are even developing small radar modules capable of seeing through walls. Roll past the break for a video of the vehicles in action, along with full PR.

We’ve covered quite a few rescue robots in the past, but Helios IX, developed at the Tokyo Institute of Technology is certainly one of the most versatile models. The robot is designed to be used in post-disaster situations, as it can climb up and down stairs, overcome uneven ground, open doors and pick up objects.
What’s interesting is that Helios IX doesn’t only use its tracks but also its arms when moving, for example when ascending stairways. It can be remote-controlled but also operates semi-autonomously, i.e. by calculating the distance to a door, analyzing the vicinity and then choosing the shortest way on its own.
Its makers say Heliox IX can also be made water-, dust-, and radiation-proof if needed.
This video (shot by our friends at Diginfonews Tokyo) provides more insight on the robot:
