iQuad is a quadcopter with wings that can transition from a hovering mode to an efficient airplane-like forward flight mode. It is controlled using Arducopter, and has a carbon fiber body with 3D-printed wings.
After six years and thousands of builds around the world, MAKE's Compressed Air Rocket Launcher has received a total overhaul. Come hear from the original designer Rick Schertle about all that went into this new design. Also hear about the new Air Rocket Glider designed in collaboration with Keith Violette. Keith and Rick's story is a classic maker collaboration between the East and West Coast.
Our project is an open source multicopter project that DIY'ers can use to make a flying robotic machine. Users can either use an Arduino with our Inertial Measurement shield, or our new ARM based processor board as a flight
Laminar flow fountain designs are my current interest in creating kinetic art sculptures. I have a new display on the physics of fluid dynamics enhanced with fiber optics to create a science oriented art sculpture.
