SurVoyeur 

A DIY Drone created in Namibia for land surveying, put together by Gisela & Joe Noci who have been working in the area for solutions to wildlife conservation and other local needs. Via DIY Drones:

This aircraft is a sub 4.5kg electric, able to carry up to 600grams payloads for up to 45minutes. It is also a fully autonomous system, with full autolaunch and autoland in harsh terrain. It has been extensively flown here in Namibia, mostly on land surveying missions, photographing up to 150hectare in one flight. We have fitted it with a Samsung 20Mpixel camera, giving us down to 2cm ground resolution on the resulting georeferenced ortho-images.

Ocean waves contain substantial amounts of energy, and many projects are underway to harness them as renewable energy sources. Most of these projects use the motion caused by waves to generate electrical energy. In this example, a flexible carpet is attached to hydraulic pumps. As the waves move over the carpet, it oscillates, raising and lowering the piston of the pumps. This adds hydraulic pressure to the discharge lines that run from the wave carpet to the shore. Once on dry land, that hydraulic pressure can be converted to electrical energy. This design addresses one of the major challenges in ocean-wave-energy technologies—namely how to safely transmit power from the wave farm to the shore.

Domain name

I have just booked a new domain name from DotMG:

It’s just a bare site as the time of posting but it will be my playground to put into practice my PHP.

Yes, I got down recently to learn PHP despite the fact that I dislike script language be it server side or client side (I am definitely a Delphi guy and appreciate a lot Digital Mars D).


The advent of changes undergone by PHP since version 5.3 and the plethora of micro-frameworks helped me change my mind (I appreciate Silex, Slimframework and Flight).
