Robotic Gas-Stations: Automation on a new level!

Robots are rapidly changing our daily lives for the betterment of humanity, replacing human intervention in places where lives matter most. This effort by a Dutch company only strengthens the above claim, where a Robotic Arm will fill up the gas tank while you wait insiderear.jpg

Currently priced at 75,000 euro ($111,100), the car-fuelling robot comes equipped with a large database that contains details about the position and designs of the fuel caps in a variety of different models, and using multiple sensors, extends from a regular gas pump, carefully opens the car’s flap, unscrews the cap, picks up the fuel nozzle and directs it towards the tank opening, much as a human arm would, and as efficiently too.

HDMI taking Over DVI

Anyone that has modern display devices such as LCD Screens, HDTV’s etc must have heard of DVI. Its a connector (normally white in colour) that is used as Display Input to these devices.

LCD Fireplace Heater! Talk about an Expensive heater!

LCD is almost a craze now a days, and even though its quality is unmatched, its prices are too much to afford. And now you have heaters that use LCD’s ! 

fireplaceheater.jpgLeave it to the Japanese to create a heater that’s as ingenius as this. It may look like a cross between an LCD display and a space heater, but the display part of the gadget actually shows a “real” fireplace. The end result is that you get to imagine that your (really tiny) Japanese apartment has a fireplace in it while you’re warming up your fingers and toes during the long Kyoto winters. Too bad it’s 25,800 yen ($242) or we’d import one for ourselves. [Hammer Price via DVICE]
