Japanese Company Develops Flying Motorbike



Japanese A.L.I. Technologies Inc has developed "Speeder," a motorbike-like floating vehicle, which will appear at next month's Tokyo Motor Show.

The body of the hovering vehicle is made out of CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) in order to be lightweight enough.
 
The Speeder is actually a VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) vehicle that travels several tens of centimeters above the ground. Set for mass production in the second half of 2021, it is equipped with two engines in the front and rear parts, and each of them rotates a propeller to generate a propelling force downward. To move forward and make a turn, two small propellers on the right and left sides are used.

The Speeder is expected to be used for lifesaving at the time of disaster, in deserts and swamps and on the sea.

i posted 3 songs because the 2nd song is very short.  sorry for late birthday greeting as i slept a lot this past few days.  today in the early afternoon as i was still sleeping, my mom asked me if i want to go eat with her in a restaurant.  so i went with her which is better than sleeping too much. then we went to supermarket, and when i came home, i felt sleepy so i took like 2 hours nap. then my middle brother bought me starbucks mocha frappucino and i drank it that i no longer felt sleepy that i felt happy about it.  so i was able to wash dishes for the day and had some dinner and now i have the time to wish you a happy birthday.

Researchers with the University of Washington and Facebook have detailed a method using artificial intelligence to animate a person using a single still image. The algorithm is called Photo Wake-Up, and it will be presented at the Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition on June 19.

The Photo Wake-Up algorithm is given a single still image, such as a photo of a person standing or even an image of a less-than-realistic painting. The system animates the character or person featured in the still image, enabling it to step out of the photo and move forward in 3D space. The hole in the image where the character was located is automatically filled in by the software.



According to the study, the method can create a 3D character from the still image that is capable of walking, running, sitting, and jumping in 3D. The resulting animations can be experienced using augmented reality, enabling artwork in museums to literally walk off the wall, for example.



Despite the input image only providing a single camera position, the resulting 3D model can be viewed from the side and back, as well. The quality varies based on the image; a sample video shared by the researchers shows some 3D models that look more realistic than others.

As has already been demonstrated with AI-based faced generation technologies, it's likely the quality of this method will improve greatly over coming months and years. The study follows a different method revealed by Samsung in May that can transform a still image of a face into an animated, talking video.

this is a really interesting technology.

sorry for late birthday greeting as it past one day of your birthday already.  i was going places today and one of the places i went was the gym, when i came home from the gym it passed 9 p.m.  i like working out at the gym though.  at home, i had dinner then watched a little bit of one of my favorite singers singing in concert on youtube on tv and then lay down on bed to rest after that as i was tired.  didn't feel like going through your older birthday threads to listen to older video game musics that i posted until like nearly midnight.

Then now i finally post new videogame musics on you new birthday thread.  i did lay down in bed some more after midnight to take a break as i was typing this because i got stressed out and now i am finally done typing. :)

oh btw, i posted 3 videogame musics on your birthday thread instead of the usual 2 because the 2nd and 3rd songs are pretty short.
