  • V-Coptr Falcon Drone Ditches The Quadcopter Design For A Two-Rotor Propulsion System

For the longest time, our aerial drones have used the quadcopter form factor. It’s a stable, fast, and reliable design, after all. You have to admit, though, swapping your old drone for another quadcopter can get pretty boring. That’s why we appreciate the Zero Zero V-Coptr Falcon, a new aerial drone that takes on a bi-copter form factor.

Equipped with a V-shaped dual-rotor propulsion system, the drone makes a marked departure from the prevailing design in the market, giving it a distinct appearance that should be quite refreshing to longtime drone users. Will it be quadcopter drones? We don’t know, but the novelty of new design is definitely quite welcome in our book.

The Zero Zero V-Coptr Falcon is equipped with a new dual-rotor propulsion that, the outfit claims, is more efficient compared to quadcopters of the same size carrying the same payload. That means, it puts less strain on the battery, allowing this drone to stay in the air for up to 50 minutes on a battery module no bigger than those on traditional quadcopters. With only two rotors equipped with a new patented propeller design that creates lift with higher efficiency, the drone also produces less noise, making it far less loud than similarly-sized units in the market.

It uses the outfit’s tilt rotor technology, which incorporates a new industrial design, nonlinear dynamic modeling, and control algorithms that allow it to be very agile while staying very stable up in the air. Truth be told, we don’t completely understand what that means, but we’re just assuming it uses some automated mechanisms to help you pilot this thing in the most efficient way possible. Like many modern drones, it comes with obstacle avoidance via the outfit’s Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) and a front-facing stereo camera, which allows it to map its surroundings, detect obstacles, and avoid collisions. Do note, since all of these are done as the drone is in flight, it loses the ability to make proper avoidance calculations when flying at higher speeds.

Naturally, it gets visual tracking algorithms (auto-follow), so you can just mark a subject and have it automatically track it for the rest of the shot. It also comes with pre-programmed flight paths that you can use to make planning your aerial shots just a little bit easier, complete with post-editing templates to make those shots even more cinematic.

The Zero Zero V-Coptr Falcon comes out in February 2020, priced at $699.

LG UltraFine Ergo Monitor Uses A Versatile Mount To Let You Position It In A Variety Of Ways

If you work in creative media, chances are, you’ve come across LG’s UltraFine monitors. They’re quite popular in the field, with their high resolution, great image quality, and easy integration with most any platform. The LG UltraFine Ergo 32-Inch 4K Monitor brings the same things, albeit with a new stand that anyone with a crowded desk will absolutely appreciate.

Equipped with a space-saving stand, the monitor actually to the edge of a desk, taking up very little actual space on the surface, giving you more room for all your computing peripherals. That way, you can have your laptop, keyboard, mouse, drawing tablet, control knob, and all sorts of accessories right on the desk, all within easy reach as soon as you need them.

The LG UltraFine Ergo 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor doesn’t just help you save space on the desk with its clamp-style stand. Instead, it mounts the monitor on a hinge that allows it to swivel up to 280 degrees horizontally and tilt 25 degrees vertically, as well as move a few inches to either side, raise above eye level, lower to desk level, and even spin it 180 degrees, turning the display to face the other side. Plus, you can always clamp it somewhere else, if you need a more drastic change of position. Basically, you can use this to put the display exactly where you need it, ensuring it completely supports your creative workflow.

It has an IPS panel with 4K UHD resolution, so you can see everything in crisp and sharp detail, with 95 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR-10 support making this a perfect fit for creative professionals. Unlike many of LG’s previous UltraFine monitors, it’s not actually designed for Mac users, with the panel coming with a USB-C port instead of the Thunderbolt 3 from previous models. It also gets one DisplayPort and two HDMI ports. While not designed for gaming, it does come with FreeSync support and a 5ms pixel response time, which should make it competent enough for all but the pickiest gamers.

Basically, if you do any kind of resource-intensive creative work on PCs, the LG UltraFine Ergo 32-Inch 4K Monitor should make for an interesting option. It might even serve as a primary consideration if you place premium value on your desk space, as the only surface area it covers is a small patch that’s used up by the clamp. At least, this is the case for PC users. Mac users might want to opt for something with Thunderbolt 3 to maximize their laptop’s charging efficiency when hooked up to the monitor.

 

Aside from this 4K display, LG also announced a new lineup of gaming monitors. This includes three UltraGear displays, which boast 144Hz and 160Hz refresh rates, hardware calibration, DisplayHDR 600 support, and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility. There’s also a new curved Ultrawide 38-inch panel, which brings QHD+ resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate, , DisplayHDR 600 support, Adaptive-Sync, and NVIDIA G-Sync compatibility.

The LG UltraFine Ergo 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor will debut at the upcoming CES trade show.

 

Innfos Gluon Brings Industrial Precision To Consumer-Grade Desktop Robot Arms

There’s no shortage of desktop robot arms that are aimed at both professionals and hobbyists alike. The Innfos Gluon looks to set itself apart with a modular design and an industrial servo system that allows it to bring a new level of precision to desktop robots.

Designed for both professionals and hobbyists, the robot boasts human-like flexibility that allows it to be programmed for a wide variety of tasks like any similar robot arm, from pick-and-place operations and camera tracking to 3D fabrication and processing assembly. Except, they do it with the outfit’s own smart compliant actuator (SCA), which has previously served as the core joint actuator in many high-end service robots, giving it a level of precise control like nothing before it.

The Innfos Gluon is a modular six-axis robot arm that can move in a complex variety of ways, allowing it to reach nearly any position with its immediate reach. The big selling point here, of course, is the composite-based SCA QDD Lite-NE30 smart actuator, which comes equipped with a high torque density outer rotor motor, high-precision reducer, precision encoder, collision detection sensor, and driver, giving it compliant control that, the outfit claims, can carry out tasks with “human-like flexibility and suppleness.” Because of this actuator, the arm’s position, velocity, torque, and impedance can be precisely regulated without the need for any other components. They claim it’s so accurate, it can even perform needle threading with an impressive consistency.

This same actuator also enables collision detection and even gravity compensation, making this quite the sophisticated desktop robot. More importantly, the robot can carry out its actions fast, moving at speeds of 302 degrees per second on five axis and 902 degrees per second on the last one.

Like many desktop robot arms, the Innfos Gluon has swappable end effectors for carrying out different tasks. The current lineup lists a suction cup, a universal ball gripper, a micro servo gripper, and an electromagnetic head, although they also mention pen holders, laser engravers, and 3D printers, so we’re not quite sure which ones will be available for purchase. It has a load-carrying capacity of 500 grams (over a pound), so it can carry GoPros, smartphones, and plenty of small objects pretty easily, while a composite carbon fiber build makes it strong while being lightweight.

 

You can easily hook it up to a computer using the included Ethernet-to-CAN bridge, all while supporting Windows, Linux, and Mac platforms out of the box, so you can use it with everything from your brand new Macbook to a Raspberry Pi. It comes with control software called IRS, which integrates a programming interface, trajectory planning, and even programming lessons for those who need it, as well as its own visual debug software (Innfos Actuator Studio). There’s also an SDK if you want to write code for the robot in MATLAB, Python, C++ or ROS.

A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Innfos Gluon. You can reserve a unit for pledges starting at $899.

Complete Your Apple Pro Display XDR With A Logitech 4K Pro Magnetic Webcam

We love Apple’s Pro Display XDR, a 32-inch Retina 6K monitor that boasts incredible brightness, astonishing contrast, and an overall exceptional picture quality. It’s nice. Like many monitors, though, it doesn’t bother adding a webcam on board, so you’ll have to go on another machine if you want to video conference with your production team. The Logitech 4K Pro Magnetic Webcam changes that.

Designed specifically for the Pro Display XDR, it’s a webcam that magnetically snaps onto the edge of the monitor, instantly giving it a camera you can use for video calls while you’re at work. Sure, it won’t exactly integrate seamlessly, as it will break the straight line on the monitor’s edges whether you mount it in landscape or portrait, although it has been tastefully designed to blend in with the display’s aesthetics.

The Logitech 4K Pro Magnetic Webcam may not sound like the most logical product for Apple’s newest monitor, which is encased in an aluminum enclosure, so you can exactly snap a magnet onto any part of it. As such, the webcam comes with a ferromagnetic mounting strip with an adhesive backing that you first place on the part of the edge where you want to put the webcam. Once that’s set up, you can then snap the actual webcam on and off the mount, although you’re, naturally, restricted to placing it on the same mounting strip every time. According to the outfit, the magnetic hold is strong enough to ensure the webcam stays steady, even during those times you rotate the display into portrait mode.

It can capture 4K video at 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p at 90 fps, complete with a 90-degree field of view, 5x digital zoom, and autofocus. Since the monitor won’t have a mic, either, they threw in a pair of noise-canceling omnidirectional mics for capturing your voice, with no need for a dedicated mic peripheral.

The Logitech 4K Pro Magnetic comes with a companion software where you can control panning, tilting, and zooming actions for the webcam, all while using HDR and a light adjustment algorithm to adjust in-frame illumination, ensuring you look your best onscreen, regardless of the actual ambient lighting in your room. That means, you can close the curtains and shut off the lights if that helps you concentrate on work, without looking like a horror movie scene when you decide to go on voice chat with a client on the other end.

 

Do note, this is designed specifically for Apple’s monitor, so it’s also only likely to work in plug-and-play mode with Apple’s computers. Can you use it on a Windows PC? We’re guessing not, unless they made a driver for the platform (which makes no sense). It comes with two USB-C cables – a short one and a long one, depending on which one you need (with certain machines, you need to plug in directly to the computer, instead of the monitor in order to maintain a 4K video feed).

The Logitech 4K Pro Magnetic is coming in January, priced at $199.99.

BOSS SY-1000 Puts Three Guitar Synth Engines Right At Your Feet

There’s no shortage of instruments that can crank out synthesizer sounds. For musicians most comfortable with a six-string, it only makes sense to use the same axe to produce multi-layered electronic sounds. If you want something that’s both elaborate and richly-featured, you might want to take a look at the BOSS SY-1000 Guitar Synthesizer.

Billed as the outfit’s most powerful guitar and bass synth ever, the pedalboard gives your guitar a whole new range of sonic destinations, allowing you to take your sound to places it’s never been before. Whether you’re a seasoned musician who wants to add even more complex electronic layers to your repertoire or a guitarist looking to mess around with strange new sounds, this thing should make a nice addition to your growing stomp box collection.

The BOSS SY-1000 Guitar Synth builds on the tech found in the SY-300, integrating a custom DSP that delivers six times the processing muscle, while getting the newly-developed Dynamic Synth sound engine, which brings 10 oscillator waveforms, six different filters, two LFOs, amplifier control, and two 16-part step sequencers for controlling pitch, filter, and amplitude independently. Joining the new sound engine are refreshed version of old guitar synths from the outfit, namely OSC (an analog-style engine with full ADSR control) and the Roland GR-300 (yes, the one that all bands used back in the 80s). In guitar mode, it gets plenty of options for guitar and amp modeling (23 guitar types, including 10 acoustic, and 31 amps), while the bass mode gives it full access to the same three synth types, with 12 modeling options for bass guitars (including one acoustic) and 31 different amps.

It allows the playing of three simultaneous instrument types, complete with advanced real-time signal processing, with each instrument providing pitch, level, and panning of each string to enable instant alternate tunings and provide wide, layered soundscapes. Unlike other guitar synths, it allows for polyphonic tracking of notes without the use of MIDI by connecting using Roland’s proprietary GK Pickup, instead of the traditional ¼-inch input.

 

Want to use the BOSS SY-1000 Guitar Synth like a regular effects box? Not a problem, as it also integrates over 150 effects found in the outfit’s GT-1000 pedal, so you can use it as a more traditional effects box if you don’t feel like making weird synthesized noises during a practice session. A large LCD and tactile knobs allow you to quickly change instruments, edit effects, change routings, and more, with built-in memory allowing you to store your favorite setups for easily switching to during live play. By default the eight footswitches let you select patches, banks and two control assignments, although each one can be easily remapped to bring up any function of your choosing. Other features include external control support, an effects loop, configurable main/sub outputs, and BOSS’ Tone Studio editor for capturing audio directly from the pedal when you hook it up to the PC via USB.

The BOSS SY-1000 Guitar Synth is available now, priced at $999.99.
