Amiigo, the Smart Wearable Sensor That Knows What You’re Doing

Wearable sensors or fitness-tracking bracelets, such as the Nike+ FuelBand or Fitbit Flex, are starting to go mainstream. But now, there’s a new competitor in town — the Amiigo.

The team of entrepreneurs behind this new wristband claims their product is better than the others because it can automatically tell what kind of exercise you’re performing. Amiigo will also be able to differentiate more than 100 exercises, track your movements and collect a number of physiological metrics like heart rate and blood oxygen levels.

Chainsaw robot programmed to carve two stools from a single log

A chainsaw robot visited Cologne last week for a single purpose: to carve stools. The robot is nameless, but the furniture it produces on its own is called the 7xStool, which was designed by Tibor Weissmahr and Tom Pawlofsky. The latter programmed the robot to carve two 7xStools from a single log, and the robot performed this feat twice a day during live performances for visitors to Passagen 2013 design week.
