This project is very interesting. Basically, the board has several sensors that exchange information with a computer. And by filming the surfer on the waves using the board, you can have a real concrete idea of ??what "the board is feeling. " This is quite interesting and can really turn a surfboard as we know. Here among us, the surf boards really need to improve. A professional surfer breaks on average 50 boards a year. Very cool design, I imagine that this helps to improve the surfboards designs of the future. one of the moments of the film, the creators say it is an open project, but found nothing on the site . . would be really cool to help evolve this project . . anyone seen more info on this? abs!. Past the pond, a traditional leisure area of ??Rio de Janeiro, you can see an example of appropriation of public planning and DIY spirit born of collective engagement.

An airplane wing that changes shape in flight, a piece of board that is on command into a chair and a surfboard that is adapted to the needs of the user. These are the research ideas that have been awarded the''Young Wild Ideas Award''. This price is regularly awarded by the Delft Centre for Materials of Delft University of Technology students who have the most innovative ideas in the field of materials research. Students receive this afternoon (April 25) during a ceremony every $ 10,000 awarded to carry out their research proposal. Wings on command change forms (morfende wings), the holy grail of the aircraft industry. Wings can now change shape to move through parts or rotating. Morfende wings, these redundant mechanisms and improve performance. In addition, the wings require less maintenance and are reliable. Philip Poppe, Master student in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, will examine whether thermoplastic materials are suitable as the basis for a self-deforming wing. Thermoplastic materials deform under the influence of heat. By cleverly placing electric blankets,''''the material with a touch and bend back to its original state return. The graduate architect from Delft Charlotte Lelieveld want to use a memory material to a''smart home''to surfboards designs that meet the needs of the occupant to adjust. Under the influence of light or temperature, memory material to deform later to assume its original shape. Deformed material to the desired shape to take Charlotte to artificial muscles. She hopes her research with a floorboard to make himself transforms into a chair if the resident long in that spot, unmoving. Jan van Kranendonk and Leonard Scherg are avid surfers and studying Industrial Design. As surfers, they want a surfboard that is tailored to the individual user. surfboards designs are only profitable if they can be made in large quantities. The two are so in October 2004 began building their own surfboards. They have to appoint one machine developed a computer-designed board with a hot wire to cut off the light and durable EPS. The next step in their quest for the perfect surfboard is to combine and experiment with different materials such as bamboo, fiberglass and epoxy resin to create a sustainable surfboard to the surfer all the freedom he needed. The prize for the winners will be awarded on April 25 at 16:00 pm in the Great Hall of the Faculty of Architecture of TU Delft. Jeroen van Luijtelaer, the winner of the previous Young Wild Idea Award at the ceremony will share his research on a rotating solar which has an increased efficiency compared to current solar water heaters. There will be outside of the Architecture building a working prototype of the rotating solar to admire. The Young Wild Idea program of the Delft Centre for Materials enables students and PhD candidates of TU Delft able to unusual research paths in the field of materials to start or explore. The program allows 10,000 per accepted proposal available. The Delft Centre for Materials is one of the thirteen priorities of the Delft University of Technology, it combines the expertise available within TU Delft in the field of structural materials. . . .
