I have a quadrocopter and a tricopter and am working with a quad for a university's project as well as going to use one hexacopter for another project related to studies.
The only downside to these Multirotors is the poor battery life. That's why I like the OpenROV so much ;-)

First time I've heard this term: Invasivore.

I like it. One of my favorite possesions is a pair of possum fur gloves that Eric picked up in Antarctica and brought back as a gift. The brushtail possum is out of control in New Zealand, and the gloves help support a market for the support of native fauna.

Marketing is the new apex predator.

(Details on possum situation in NZ: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2013/03/new-zealands-war-on-30-million-possums/273606/)
Fancy some kudzu, python, wild boar, bullfrog, or Asian carp? You might be an "invasivore" already!

So that makes cannibals the best Invasivores, I guess ;-)

One of my favorite things about G+ is the "How Things Are Made" or "How Things Work" GIFs.

Last dive of the weekend. Already at 100m depth!
David Lang originally shared:
 
We had a great dive this afternoon. This is more of a dive to push the limits on a few other components.  We're going out for one more to test other systems, and cameras. Tune in if you're interested in the tests.

Open source soft robots!

The Glaucus - A quadrupedal soft robot with no hard moving parts

The Glaucus, named after the Blue Sea Slug (Glaucus Atlanticus), is an open source soft robotic quadruped from Super-Releaser. It is a proof of concept for a method developed at Super-Releaser that can reproduce nearly any geometry modeled on the computer as a seamless silicone skin. The company hopes to apply these same techniques to practical problems in medicine and engineering as the technology develops.

The quadruped has hollow interior chambers that interdigitate with one another. When either of these chambers is pressurized it deforms and bends the structure of the robot. This bending produces the walking motion. It is similar to how a salamander walks, by balancing itself on one pair of legs diagonal from one another while moving the opposite pair forward.

Disaster prep guide in the form of narrative fiction. Ethan Watters' piece is wildly effective and totally captivating.
