Yobo Portable NES

Inventor Ben Heckendorn is back at it again, and this time, he creates a Yobo Portable – a brand of Nintendo clones – that is compatible with NES cartridges. He managed to find one in a junk pile for $5, hacked it up for parts, and the rest is history. The case was designed in Fusion 360, while the final design uses the same type of flat Li-po batter as the Raspberry Pi No HDMI project. A laser printer fabricated the front panel, and he 3D prints parts with Makergear M2 and the old Replicator 1. Click here for the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.

ACV Amphibious Combat Vehicles

The U.S. Marine Corps partnered with BAE Systems to build the ACV 1.1, a high-tech amphibious combat vehicle. This 8×8 amphibious platform can carry 13 embarked Marines, plus a crew of three, and boasts a special ‘H-Drive’ System to provide full time all-wheel traction both on land and in the surf zone. It’s powered by a 690HP engine, good over a range of more than 325 miles on land before needing to refuel, and it can travel at speeds in excess of 65 miles per hour.

NVIDIA Super Slow Mo

Put simply, NVIDIA researchers have developed a deep learning-based system that is capable of producing high-quality, 240-frames-per-second slow-motion videos using a normal 30-frame-per-second video. This new system outperforms various state-of-the-art methods that claim to do the same. “While it is possible to take 240-frame-per-second videos with a cell phone, recording everything at high frame rates is impractical, as it requires large memories and is power-intensive for mobile devices. For these reasons and others, it is of great interest to generate high-quality slow-motion video from existing videos,” said the researchers.

Working Doctor Octopus Suit

Erik Finman, also known as the world’s youngest Bitcoin millionaire, managed to build a real-life, working Dr. Octopus arm prosthesis for a young Marvel fan who also suffers from hypermobility symptoms. The suit boasts four flexible tentacles, controlled via rear-mounted microcontrollers, and is powered by a total of eight servo-motors, which run on a 4-cell Lithium Motorcycle battery. The 12.5 pound creation is manageable, even for 10-year-old Aristou. “He came up with this idea – because he’s a huge comic book fan, a huge Spider-Man fan – of having his own Doctor Octopus suit. He said ‘that would solve my problems. I thought that was such a smart idea and sweet. For me, it would have been so great if someone had helped me at that age. So I felt like a kindred spirit in a lot of ways,” said Finman. Click here for the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.

Miss R Electric Supercar

XING Mobility’s Miss R is touted as the “world’s first electric supercar with on-road and off-road capabilities,” thanks to four electric motors as well as a 1 Megawatt battery pack which consists of 98 modules and 4116 cells. This means a combined output of 1,341 hp (1000 kW), enabling it to go from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in a mere 1.8 seconds and 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 5.1 seconds.

All Terrain Warriors Alpha Expedition

Priced from $245K, the All Terrain Warriors Alpha Camper may sound like a video game at first, but it’s actually one of the coolest expedition vehicles you’ll see today, or ever. It uses the standard (two-person cab) Fuso Chassis and is powered by a 3.0L I-4 Mercedes turbo diesel with a six-speed automatic transmission and factory four-wheel-drive. The vehicle’s Mitsubishi OEM suspension has been replaced with parabolic suspension and adjustable shock absorbers to facilitate ease-of-ride over smooth surfaces such as paved roads, while progressively responds with added stiffness as the terrain becomes more challenging.

Wireless Power Room

Forget chargers, Disney Research has developed a wireless power room that can transmit data through the air. That’s right, quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR) can enable purpose-built structures, such as cabinets, rooms, and warehouses, to generate quasistatic magnetic fields that safely deliver kilowatts of power to mobile receivers contained nearly anywhere within. In their experimental demonstration, a 54 m3 QSCR room can deliver power to small coil receivers in nearly any position with 40% to 95% efficiency.

Jet Powered Scooter

Inventor Colin Furze is back at it again, and this time, he’s built a jet-powered micro scooter for his son. This isn’t like the other jet-powered creations we’ve featured though, as this one doesn’t use the turbines that power commercial airliners whose hot exhaust could easily melt your face, but rather a battery-powered ducted fan strapped to the scooter. This means that it’s capable of producing thrust without burning the rider’s legs. Click here for the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.

Think of AM General’s all-new NXT 360 as a tactical Humvee, but designed for the military. Featuring undercarriage blast protection, higher ground clearance, stocky tires, a tuned suspension, and an increased 15,500-pound payload capacity. It’s powered by a turbocharged 6.5L V8 engine generating 250 horsepower and 450 foot-pounds of torque. To top things off, there’s also a 360-degree Howitzer cannon.

Army Third Arm

The US Army reveals a “Third Arm” device looks to be straight from a science fiction film, but it’s actually a specially designed harness that helps take the weight of weapons off a soldier’s arms. Best of all, it doesn’t require batteries, is light enough to be easily transported, and evenly distributes the load of a heavy weapon. “It falls in line with the direction that the Army wants to be heading in the future. We get comments from Soldiers who tell us different things about the way it feels on their body…about the way it redistributes the load. Some like it, some give us tips about the ways it could be improved, and we’re using that input to improve the device and improve the design so that it not only works well, but it also feels good,” said mechanical engineer Dan Baechle.
