Disney Conquers Physics, Uses 3D Printing To Create Impossible Spinning Tops
The idea: if you have near-perfect control of an object’s distribution of mass, you can also control its center of gravity.
In other words: if you can pick-and-choose which areas of a semi-solid object are heavier than others, you can make all sorts of weirdly shaped objects spin like a top when they’d otherwise flop right onto the table.
Want a spinning teapot? Okay! A nameless “armadillo” action figure that can spin on one finger? Sure! Disney just passes in the 3D model and plugs in their spinning axis of choice, and their algorithms figure out what sections of the model’s internals need to be made hollow (or, in some cases, use a heavier printing material) for optimal balance.
The bad news: this project was built by Disney’s Swiss research team for the SIGGRAPH 2014 conference, but it doesn’t look like they’re releasing any of the tools they built for others to tinker with. You can read their paper on the project here.

La révolution Internet a réussi à de nombreux secteurs d’activité. C’est le cas par exemple de l’industrie du jeu, qui a su se mettre à l’heure du Web.

Raspberry Pi B+

"The Model B+ uses the same BCM2835 application processor as the Model B. It runs the same software, and still has 512MB RAM; but James and the team have made the following key improvements:

  • More GPIO. The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model B.
  • More USB. We now have 4 USB 2.0 ports, compared to 2 on the Model B, and better hotplug and overcurrent behaviour.
  • Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • Lower power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones we’ve reduced power consumption by between 0.5W and 1W.
  • Better audio. The audio circuit incorporates a dedicated low-noise power supply.
  • Neater form factor. We’ve aligned the USB connectors with the board edge, moved composite video onto the 3.5mm jack, and added four squarely-placed mounting holes.” ~ raspberrypi.org/blog
