iPad 3 Logic Board with A5X System on a Chip

The forum post at Chinese site WeiPhone offers a photo of what is claimed to be the iPad 3’s logic board showing an A5X system on-a chip. Apple is expected to introduce an upgraded processor and graphics package for the iPad 3, with the assumption being that it would be called the A6 after the A4 initially appeared in the original iPad and iPhone 4 and was succeeded by the A5 in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. But if this photo is to be believed, that assumption appears to have been incorrect, with Apple instead having branded the upgraded package with the A5X name. A date code of “1146” on the A5X indicates that it was manufactured in the 46th week of 2011, which would have corresponded to November 14-20.

Robot That Can Draw Sketch of People

The Frauhofer robot, which is normally used to analyze the optical reflection properties of various materials, will draw a portrait of anybody willing to sit still in a chair for about ten minutes. The robot uses a camera to study its subject, edge-processing software to seek out the contrasts in the image, and translates them into movements of the robot’s arm. The arm which holds a pencil turns draws the portrait on a piece of paper in front of it. This robot is pretty cool combination of art, science and technology.

Murata Created World Smallest Power Supply Module

Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd. of Japan has managed to carve its name into record books, having announced a minuscule DC-DC converter module that is touted to be the smallest of its kind in the world.Specially built to target tiny electronic devices including smartphones as well as tablets, this power supply has an output of 0.6A, and the entire module itself measures 2.5mm x 2.3mm. Murata managed to achieve this particular feat after combining its ceramic multilayer board technology and manufacturing technology for ferrite materials in order to form an inductor (which is, a coil for power supply) within the module substrate.

Helicopter that Controlled With Hand Movement

Force Flyer is an helicopters that controlled with hand movement. When you turn your hand in either direction, it will inform the helicopter to turn in that same direction, thanks to the glove’s built-in accelerometer which is not too far off from the functionality of the the accelerometer in a Wiimote. You can power up this crash-resilient helicopter via USB, where 20 minutes of charging time gives you half the amount of flight time. Force Flyers will be hitting store shelves in May. The smaller, indoor version of the Force Flyer will retail for $50, the larger, outdoor version will retail $100.For more information watch video below.
