Looks like the flaming patters on early Danish swords...

Do you twist the material or fold it?

I tried making a blade once, out of a length of rebar.. Needless to say it didn't turn out this good.

What style of handle/hilt do you plan on making?

Yes, I am. Sure all of this can be done using a webcam and a computer but this thing is much smaller and cheaper. Oh and it works at 50 frames per second so it's slightly faster than most webcams

Pixy will ship with the software and firmware that will do everything seen in the video and described here. You can use this software and firmware as-is (we expect 90% of users to do this.) .Or you can build on it, modify it, or completely replace it
I wonder if it would be possible to use the same algorithm that your autonomous turret uses. Possibly it wouldn't need a laptop to work

They claim you can upload your own firmware so something more advanced than colour detection is possible. Maybe not at 50frames per second

BAHAHAHAHAHA!

Nice one Jake! All it needs is an appropriate plaque ;)

The BBC asks "will we ever want to have sex with robots?"

I think the real question is, once robots are good enough, will we still want to have sex with humans?

At the heart of our relationships with such machines, fictional or not, is the question of what it means to be human and to relate to others.

While no machine, however well-engineered, can ever feel empathy - something which defines us humans - it might be able to simulate it well enough to allow us to play along and treat it as if it were a sentient being.


I disagree with this sentimental view. A human being is a well engineered machine, and it is naive to belive that we won't one day create a machine capable of the same thought processes. Why would you want to replicate it though? The point of technology is to improve things. Why make a mechanical horse that can travel at 70 km/h when you can ride a Suzuki Hayabusa at 300 km/h?
