ELECTRICITY MAKES SOFT ROBOTICS MORE LIKE US MEATBAGS

Building a future where robots work alongside humans relies heavily on soft robotics. Typically this means there will be an air compressor or a hydraulic system nearby, taking up precious space. But it doesn’t have to. Engineers at the UC-San Diego Jacobs School have created a soft robotics system that uses electricity to control flexible actuators, much like our brains move our muscles. It works like ...

The Making of a Cooled CMOS Camera

Now this post will be for some serious stuff involving video compression. Early this year I decided to make a lossless compression IP core for my camera in case one day I make it for video. And because it’s for video, the compression has to be stream operable and real time. That means, you cannot save it to DDR ram and do random lookup during compression. JPEG needs to at least buffer 8 rows as it does comp ...
