REALISTIC ROBOTS Concept artist Joe Peterson reveals how to make imaginary robots feel part of your sci-fi world

Robots are an enduringly popular element in SF art, but their ubiquity makes it that much harder to get them right. Just like the anatomy of a human figure, anyone looking at your robot will have a sense of whether or not it feels correct, based on the design decisions you make and your ability to make your robot seem part of the world you’ve created.

Joe Peterson’s mission in this three-hours-plus video is simply to help you create more convincing robots.

Mechanically controlled electron tubes.

In modern electronic equipment is widely used mechanically driven vacuum tubes, very useful for solving some problems of measuring equipment. First, these lamps are used mainly in mechanical values ​​gauges (sensitive mics, accelerometers, pressure, force, vibration, high-sensitivity microphones and pickups, surface roughness gauges etc.). As a result of further study of areas of possible use of mechanically operated vacuum tubes it installed the possibility and expediency of their application for measuring electrical quantities. Then it turned out that the mechanically driven vacuum tubes can be used as small of contactless controlled dimmers, automatic regulators, stabilizing devices, controlled rectifiers and

Uralvagonzavod system is implemented lean manufacturing

At the head office of the corporation "Uralvagonzavod" a seminar on the results of the quality management system. Particular attention was paid to the methods of lean manufacturing, implementation of which began at the northernmost site UVZ — in the shops Volchansk mechanical plant.

Quality Director Victor Shchekotov summed up the quality assurance during production and use of products produced at the plant. He stressed that in 2010 there was a significant reduction in losses from marriage relative to gross output:

in steel production — by 33.5%, a railway car — by 44% in mechanical assembly

Russian scientists have created a device for scanning thin films

Staff at Holy Trinity Technological Institute for Superhard and Novel Carbon Materials (TISNCM) created a device that allows a comprehensive analysis of coating thickness from a few nanometers to a few micrometers and a hardness of from several to tens of GPa. Previously, the study of complex parameters to the strength of the roughness had to use multiple heterogeneous devices, now this can be done using a single hardware and software system. Thereby significantly reducing the measurement time as coatings on the output quality control, and within the objectives of R & D industrial concerns.
