    Gadget Show Live 2010 :: Festo - carbon fibre muscular tubing

    Ok, so Festo shows off their carbon fibre "muscular" tubing may not be very 'gadgety' but when it's this much fun, who cares?
    Watch the show.

    Wow!

    Now that looks fun.

    But there's a few questions I'd like to ask:
    1) Is that ever gonna be available to us?
    2) How is it set up and linked to the game?
    3) When can I come and have a go?

    The tubes... Yes
    The chair.. Nope - He said it was just for demo purposes.

    I wish I knew. Maybe there's someone under the chair controlling it all with comedy sized levers.

    Re: Gadget Show Live 2010 :: Festo - carbon fibre muscular tubing

    A mech eng housemate of mine at uni was using these (can't remember if they were Festo or not) to create a prototype of a knee brace exoskeleton, the intention of which was to assist with exercises for knee injury patients.

    It was pretty cool stuff - the PWM'd air valves were quite noisy though.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Would love to get that chair setup along with 3 screens - the ultimate racing chair

    The remote controlled penguin on the other hand... not quite so useful!
