Robot ochobot become reality

Do you watch cartoon Boboiboy? One of the character is Ochobot, the robot that give power to Boboiboy and friends. Ochobot is sphere robot like ball and can fly like insect. Now advanced technology make the robot one step closer to reality. But this robot cannot fly, but it can move like spider and roll. This is really cool!

The robot called as MorpHex, was created by Kåre Halvorsen with six retractable, expanding legs that let it dance when it’s not rolling. Last time in December (the post already gone), the robot couldn’t roll. In addition, the MorpHex can also pull its legs in to turn into a sphere, and the individual sections of the robot can then be used to push it in a given direction.

The rolling isn’t perfect, and Halvorsen says it’s because right now the sphere is asymmetrical, as the upper and lower halves aren’t identical. The next iteration will include a symmetrical design that should allow the MorpHex to roll easily in any direction.

Bugatti Veyron supercar made of Porcelain on the street

 

It hard to see this £1.6million car park in the street. But once we have chances to see it, we couldn’t miss it just like that. The Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc – or White Gold is limited edition 253mph speed with 1,000bhp, which is the worlds first car to ‘wear the finest porcelain on its body’ appeared for the first time on the Paris street.

The super-luxurious Veyron owned by a UAE-based business man. The £1.6 million L’or Blanc edition of the Veyron Super Sport model was built by Bugatti with help from a German ceramics company better known for making high-end tea sets.

Behind the cabin sits the famous 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine producing 736kW of power 1250Nm of torque. Top speed is rated similarly to the normal coupe version of the Veyron (around 407km/h), but with the roof down, top speed is limited to 369km/h. The car can accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 253mph.

This exclusive one-off edition is something a bit different though. It was created in partnership with Bugatti and German porcelain company, KPM. It features a stunning white interior and a ‘White Gold’ exterior. There’s also a porcelain oil cap, wheel centre caps and a fuel filler cap.

“Installing porcelain in the world’s fastest convertible car seems like a pretty odd idea … but Bugatti has made a name for itself by not shying away from extravagant ideas.”, said Stefan Brungs, Bugatti’s sales chief.
