In The Future: Your House Will Be Cleaned By Tiny Flying Robots

What I'd give to get my house cleaned automatically. An industrial design student in Columbia has conceptualized a way to do just that. With flying robots no less! It's super cool.
Designer Adrian Perez Zapata came up with "Mab," a bunch of min robots equipped with cleaning solutions to tidy up homes. Zapata is among 20 semifinalists for the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab competition. This year's theme is "inspired urban living."
The concept users the robot loaded with water and a chemical substance into the system's spherical core. The cleaning liquid is distributed to 908 mini robots which are each equipped with propellers. After they are dispatched, the will scan the home and clean surfaces with droplets of fluid. Dirt is captured and carried back to the core.
Electrolux Design's Thomas Johansson called Mab a "bold solution, which mimics the collection of honey bees."
Mab can be scheduled for cleaning too, a lot like how Roombas can. It can also sync with mobile devices to notify users about system issues.
"The thought behind Mab is to restore a sense of wonder in the everyday life, and to recapture the magic in simple processes, providing human shelters an autonomous purification," Zapata wrote on his project page.
I'll use this, hands down, without a thought. Just as long as they don't decide to gang up and kill me instead. Wonderful idea.
Introduction and Conclusion can cause the biggest problems for your research paper at college or university. You will be surprised, but the research part is not the most difficult one for a lot of students. The biggest problems they face when writing an Introduction and Conclusion. They don't know what can be included and what can't be included in these parts, while keeping a healthy balance between an introduction, body, and conclusion in terms of word count. Read more
Given the individuality and uniqueness of every person, some things in life have to be unified. White collars are to dress in the classic style to work, while pupils wear school uniform on a daily basis. This allows for consistency and accuracy in their respective institutions just like the formatting does in writing. For clear and digestible expression of ideas, essays follow a certain structure, consist of particular elements, and have a special layout. Read more
Bike ride is the most elementary form of transport. In earlier days, it was the first human powered vehicle that later transformed the face of automation. The first bicycle appeared around 400 years ago. Slowly innovation and technology shaped the rudimentary bicycle into the modern day road bike that we are so accustomed to see. Read more
