The Hacksmith – Predator Thermal Vision Helmet

Sunday, June 21st, 2020

YouTube Channel The Hacksmith created a thermal vision helmet inspired by the ones worn by the Predators/Yautja from the series of the same name. They accomplished this by utilizing several off-the-shelf camera and computer components, including a FLIR Lepton 3.5 thermal censor pulled from a FLIR ONE Pro thermal imaging camera, and mating them to a Zeiss Cinemizer headset, all mounted within a Predator-themed motorcycle helmet cover. However, they didn’t stop there, as they also utilized a Wicked Lasers LaserCube with a custom 3D-printed shoulder mount to replicate the Predator’s laser cannon. The end result is a working helmet that can switch between various vision modes, and a shoulder-mounted laser that projects a triangular reticle, and can pop balloons almost instantly; in short, it’s pretty damn cool.

HyTAQ Robot

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Yet another innovative UAV design, the HyTAQ robot was developed by the robotics lab at the Illinois Institute of Technology. It combines a quadrotor design with a rolling cage that allows for both terrestrial and aerial locomotion. This combination allows the HyTAQ to use the same actuator set and control system for both methods of locomotion. Additionally, due to its ability to switch between ground and air travel, the HyTAQ is capable of traveling four times greater and almost 6 times longer than an aerial-only system, and can simply fly over any obstacles it encounters on the ground.
