Commuting to work can be boring. I’m gifted that I can use the Swiss train system, and I wrote about the “10 Reasons Why I Love my Train Commute“.
Train at Immensee Station
Brendon asked if I need more reasons. I don’t. But there are indeed three more reasons I can share from my work commute today: Three lakes in three minutes. First Lake Lucerne on the right side, then Lake Zug on the left and finally Lake Lauerz on the right. Enjoy the ride:
Happy Commuting 🙂
The spring university semester is coming to an end, and the Infotronic course closed with a Sumo robot challenge. Great challenge, new technologies, innovative approaches and funny designs 🙂
Maybe you remember my recent post “Schwanau on Ice” with walking on the frozen Lake Lauerz? I mentioned in that post that there are natural gas bubbles caught under the ice. There is a long (and dangerous!) tradition to burn that gas. That this is really dangerous shows this a short video going viral on ‘WhatsApp’ today:
The past weeks have been extremely busy with the new semester started. As a result, no time for new posts on this blog for nearly three weeks :-(.
Until my projects-in-progress about MQTT, Time-of-Flight sensors, LoRa (long range) wireless networking and a cool robotics project are ready, here is something to share with you all: a cool time-lapse video of my home and work area, created by Pirmin Henseler: 2 years, 30’000 pictures, 2 broken cameras, and the result is amazing:
It reminds me again how beautiful the world is.
Happy Timelapsing 🙂
The AMZ Formula Student Team did it again: they accomplished a new the world record today: accelerating with an electrical vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in only 1.513 seconds!
I always have been amazed by the music videos created by the US band OK Go. To me they are legendary, fun to watch and full of engineering. The band just released a new video, taken in a ‘single shot’ with a plane flying parabolic maneuvers:
Watch the video:
Students worked hard implementing their robots for the coming Sumo battles. Amazing looking Sumo Robots are the result :-). Have a look yourself:
Happy Sumoing 🙂
The team at the Autonomous Systems Lab under Roland Siegwart has produced the 2014 Robotics Christmas video, enjoy!
Happy Christmasing 🙂
