Notice that it's being setup near the fukushima exclusion zone, so local fishing cooperatives can't NIMBY veto the installation.

Interesting urban demand-hire rideshare vehicle prototype. Has a folding rear end that tucks itself into the passenger space to reduce storage requirements when on standby. Also features modular in-wheel electric motors with integrated all wheel steering/suspension, to open up the cabin and go back to the "skateboard" concept roots of the Chevy Volt. Zero radius turns too.

FRIDA concept robot
This is the beginning of the end for unskilled and lightly skilled manufacturing work for humans right here folks. A dual arm and torso robot that's the size of its human equivalent, easy to set up and install, and has the same basic range of motion as a human. Any pick and place style work, this can easily do. I imagine training would be as simple as wearing a motion trace waldo exoskeleton on the training worker to capture their movements.

'Virtual Smartphone' Used as Both Android Machine, iPhone -- Tech-On!
The translation for this article sucks. Seems like an extension of earlier Intel research. Basically, using a lighter Android OS on a cellphone, you connect via VPN to a dedicated virtual machine Android OS instance on a cloud server. They claim lower battery consumption on the real hardware and hardware limitation independence because the VM android can be provisioned with CPU and memory on an adhoc basis. I assume they are basically using VNC with a dedicated return channel to send serial data from accelerometers and other onboard sensors, plus some remote filesystem mounting tricks to transfer local files in the cellphone to the cloud VM. The iPhone angle is that a similar VNC-esqe app on the iPhone could provide similar accessibility to the cloud android VM, and the reverse case of having a virtual iPhone or Windows Mobile instance (though the article points out licensing prevents having virtual instances of iOS and Windows Mobile/Windows Phone 7)

PV Battery, Water Heater Combined for Efficiency -- Tech-On!
Definitely a "duh, why didn't I think of that" idea, though I imagine there may be long term issues regarding clarity of the clear plastic due to mineral accretion from the water and external clarity due to UV degradation and air pollution. But it is a neat trick to use water's optical properties to improve collector efficiency. Japan has a long history of home solar water heaters, but then tend to look terrible after a number of years and can be a real eyesore because they usually integrate the tank as well (but in Japan, home resale value is so low because people care about the land value more and build homes with poor longevity anyways so people care less about external appearances).

New Measurement Device Helps Monitor Power Consumption via Power Line -- Tech-On!
So somebody is finally getting around to the problem of monitoring non-smart appliances and getting the data to building management systems without having to install new networking lines (while avoiding wireless like ZigBee due to limited spectrum) by using an inline PLC modem to send data to a management station/controller. Smart to use the inline device as a switchable sensor/master. Now if only somebody like Intel or Atmel or TI could make a nice single chip hybrid sensor/PLC modem for both retrofit and new build devices, things could really change.

Achieving the next level of economic growth rate will take more than a manufacturing revolution
Nice fusion of technologies being pursued by DARPA. The idea of a general manufacturing plant, complete with general purpose robot arm manipulators so the production line can be reconfigured quickly, a vehicle part design library called vehicleforge, and the META metalanguage for virtual vehicle prototyping has huge implications for modern manufacturing.

Hyperion Power Generation Partners with the Department of Energy Savannah River national laboratory to build demonstration 25 MW fast reactor by 2017 or 2018
Creating a convenient combined testing facility to simultaneously test multiple new small reactor designs (basically prebuilt steam piping and some concrete pads/silos/blockhouses) would be great, similar to the new UK WaveHub subsea transformer block to allow convenient testing of various ocean power generator systems. You simply walk up, drop in your reactor, light it, and get to getting good test data.

Robotic pen assembly demo at Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo
Getting closer to replacing humans on manufacturing lines, which in the modern case is largely a human doing picker/placement movements using parts from storage boxes surrounding the human. If the picker boxes are delivered by robot trucks, then the next step is the picker action itself. Though for possibly simpler setup, you would be limited to human torso/arm analogs as that would allow simple human waldo training/recording.

Ships | Air cushion concept to lower ship’s fuel consumption by 30 percent | ekopolitan
I always wondered how they deal with air bubbles escaping the air cavity towards the transom interfering with the propellers. Shouldn't that aggravate cavitation? Ideally, wouldn't that require a center "trench" run towards the stern to funnel the escaping bubbles, and perhaps waterjets with side intakes?
