Amorim Inventa! e um RoboPato, DesignLuso-Britânico, Remos, e um Pantógrafo

O Grupo Amorim, Companhia que muito fez e faz pelo nosso País, inventou este sistema de Rolha-e-Garrafa, que não necessita de saca-rolhas...
Porque se desenrosca a Rolha!
Parabéns, e façam favor, continuem a ser como são.


Twist-off cork shifts the wine paradigm

David Szondy

What could be nicer than a picnic in a pleasant country field, a rotisserie chicken, a loaf of oven-hot bread and a nice bottle of wine? That is, provided you don't forget the corkscrew. This week, Amorim, the world’s largest manufacturer of cork stoppers, and O-I, the world's largest glass container manufacturer, made this nightmare scenario a little less likely by unveiling their Helix cork and bottle that are designed so that the cork can be removed with a simple twist of the wrist.
The Helix “twist to open” system consists of an ergonomically-designed cork stopper and a glass bottle with an internal thread finish in the neck. Instead of requiring a corkscrew, it opens like a screw-top bottle, though with the addition of a pleasant “pop.” It is also resealable as easily as it opens.











Notícias da Mindsets, este Robot-Pato é uma ideia genial para conquistar as Crianças para a Tecnologia, porque até os Adultos quererão construír um! 
Eu sei que EU quero... LOL



Robot Duck

Is there a convenient way to enable whole classes to get involved in robot building..?

This ‘kit of parts’ has all the basic components – including pre-cut plates – needed to get a robot walking, but not all the final answers.
Creative involvement ranges from investigation of mechanical variables to a major re-think of geometry. Or how about a simple hand-coloured body for the duck.
..








Este é outro bom exemplo, Cortesia da página Facebook do nosso amigo GlenHo Bespoke, de que se pode fazer Mobiliário acessível e bem-feito, e em colaboração com outros Profissionais, de outros Países, mais uma boa Iniciativa, desta vez, Luso-Britânica, estão de parabéns!



Another Country makes contemporary craft furniture by hand in workshops in the UK and Portugal. We believe in good design, longevity, sustainability and quality at fair prices. Welcome to anothercountry.com
In Portugal we manufacture one hour south of the beautiful city of Porto. We filmed one of our visits to show you how our furniture is made...
The workshop is unique in being climate controlled, ensuring our furniture is made in an optimal environment. Whether we made in the UK or Portugal, we always select FSC certified solid woods. The workshop is heated entirely by the wood off-cuts it generates.
We combine traditional methods of making with modern technology to ensure that each piece is made with great care, attention to detail and precision. Every piece is hand assembled and hand finished. And finally, each piece is quality controlled before leaving the workshop.
We really believe you can not make furniture in a better way than this.








Mais uma Engenhoca em Papel, do nosso amigo Rob Ives, a evolução dum sistema mecânico para remadores em papel, algo que faz sempre sorrir, e é porreiro de montar:





Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Visit the blog and follow along with the development of a new, as yet un-named project featuring three syncronised rowers in a boat.


Possibly a Ship of Fools or possibly a Wolf Boat, I'm not sure yet. One thing I have worked out though is the mechanism to drive the oars.
Follow along how this project develops on the website by clicking on the link.

Terminamos por hoje com outra dica de GlenHo, esta simpática página em Francês, L'air du Bois, , onde se vâ este muito bem acabado Pantógrafo em Madeira, para Fresa, um mimo, e ainda podem descortinar na foto um Desenhador de Elipses, que serve às mil maravilhas, na Fresa:




Table pour pantographe de défonceuse

Le pantographe pour défonceuse est une machine finalement assez intéressante pour copier. Et c'est aussi une machine assez polyvalente. C'est pourquoi, j'ai repensé la table qui supporte autant les pièces à usiner que le modèle à copier.
Ma première utilisation a été d'en faire une machine à queue d'arondes. Le résultat est très satisfaisant.
Cette table permet le serrage et le maintient des pièces à plat et debout.
Une petit tablette réglable vient chevaucher le tout pour porter le modèle à copier.
