Honda Riding Assist

Honda's all-new Riding Assist borrows technology found in the company's UNI-CUB personal mobility concept and Asimo robot to help motorcycles maintain balance at rest or when it's moving at slow speeds. Steering speeds under 3mph is controlled with the help of a small motor, which makes steering adjustments on the fly to keep itself stable. A separate motor, which is controlled by a device that sits under the headlight, extends the rake angle of the motorcycle at low speed, making it easier for the bike to balance on its own. That's not all, there's also a self-driving mode that can enable a motorcycle move on its own, thanks to a third electric motor located in the front wheel's hub.

Electric Arc Lighter

Electric arc lighters use a spark to create a plasma conduit between electrodes, which is then maintained by a lower voltage. The arc is then applied to a flammable substance to cause ignition, but this person has managed to modify one to play The Imperial March. "There's an unidentified microcontroller inside this unit, which we'll be replacing with a pin-compatible microcontroller (PIC12F1840) running our own code. The code drives the transformer using complementary PWM waveforms at ~15.6KHz to generate an arc, just like the previous microcontroller. It then modulates the waveform (and hence the arc) at audio frequencies to generate a tune without the need of a speaker/buzzer," said PodeCoet.

Implant-Activated Smart Gun

Biohacker Amal Graafstra has created a prototype for the world's first implant-activated "smart gun," which requires an embedded chip be implanted under the skin between the thumb and forefinger. When a user picks up their weapon, the gun would unlock only for the person with the implant. "I think the smart gun concept is important, because eventually we'd be able to control who's able to operate the weapon once it leaves the store," said Graafstra.
