15 Year Old Slays Dragon Force’s Through the Fire and Flames

Someone get Tina S. an agent, because she’s crushing it. If this video evidences what happens when talent and dedication are guided by experience, then clearly teacher Renaud Louis-Servais is earning his bread. For everyone else lacking the skills, desire, or time, there’s always the power of imagination. Then again, who knows how much better she could become with a “certain” teacher?

Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Foot/Ankle Prosthesis Moves like the Real Thing

The new prosthesis provides the most realistic movement thus far.

Researchers at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium have developed the Ankle Mimicking Prosthetic or AMP  Foot 2.0. The prosthesis is designed to give wearers a very natural and lifelike gait and features an energy harvesting system that puts a natural spring back into someone’s step.

The average prosthetic uses springs or elastic to store and re-purpose the energy from a downward step to propel the wearer forward. However, this passive approach doesn’t mimic the motion and actions of a human leg well.

The AMP Foot 2.0, uses a lightweight motor that powers an actuator and specially designed locking release mechanism. The actuator keeps it so there’s always enough stored energy to push off someone weighing up to 165 pounds with every step. The time release mechanism matches the motion of someone walking on flat ground. The combination of these two things are what create the appearance of a natural walk.

The most impressive thing about the prosthesis is just how lightweight it is coming in a just five and half pounds. Coincidentally, the average weight of a human foot is five pounds. Because of it’s similarity in weight, in would not take someone long to learn to walk with the new prosthetic.

Prosthetics have been making progress in leaps and bounds in the last ten years with the increase of better technology. Pretty soon it will be hard to tell if anyone is wearing a prosthesis at all.
