asteroza + micro   31

Prox Dynamics - Welcome
Makers of the PD-100 Black Hornet surveillance microUAV, used currently by US army groups as a short range tactical scout, looking around corners and exposed spaces. Small so man portable, not luggable, and the soldiers seem to like it as it is simple to deploy and operate. Self stabilized too. Probably also cheap(er) so can be considered more expendable, which makes a soldier more likely to want to use it. Roughly the size of your hand.

Micro-Grid Portable Power – Energy Storage with Wind & Solar Energy | Arista Power «
Apparently RDECOM tested an integrated portable power station for microgrid purposes and loved it. The diffuser micro wind turbine is a good trick, but it doesn't look that portable to me unless the turbine diffuser breaks down into individual panels for transportation.

CAMPFIRE キャンプファイヤー | マイクロ・パトロン・プラットフォーム #campfirejp
Japanese alternative to Kickstarter. This might have legs, since Kickstarter can only dump money to US banks, and there is a tremendous hobby artisan/creative class in japan that sometimes just needs a nudge to go lightly commercial in nature on various products/ideas/services. Uses Paypal for the user money input (few international alternatives, but japan got tough and made Paypal less pleasant to use do to changes in the law). Nothing huge, but things to scratch an itch...
