GYC Gloves – Product of the month

A few months ago we got a shipment of GYC gloves at work, I was very impressed with the quality and another benefit is the grip texture actually works with tough screens (DMG Siemens 840 D) and smart phones.

I ended up getting a set from Amazon

They have multiple size and color options

Beyond the machine shop work, at work I’ve also used them for Gardening work & moving.

Rylo 360º Action Camera (Product of the month)

Found quite the cool camera today that would be great on a Drone or General Aviation Aircraft called the Rylo 360º

It has an extreme fish eye lens on each side that through software stitches together a 360º video. When watched on a smart phone or VR display the video ties to the Gyros and where ever you point your phone or VR the video goes to that direction instantly.

It also has built in image stabilization eliminating the need for gimbals.

https://www.rylo.com/details/

Buy with the convenience of amazon

Here is a video taken from the Rylo 360, Move your phone around or mouse grab and move the screen to see it in action.

Here is a 360 drone video, its not done with a Rylo but gives a good idea of what you can do with it.

And from a helicopter (Manned, with full FAA blessings i’m sure) of NYNY

 

  • Includes sync cables for both iPhone and Android devices
  • Breakthrough stabilization: with breakthrough stabilization and horizon leveling automatically built in, Rylo makes your videos look like they were shot on a professional stabilization rig.
  • Front back: put yourself in the action with a picture-in-picture that shows your facial expression as you capture a moment.
  • Points: control the camera’s perspective, after-the-factor, by tapping on specific points of interest in your video. Rylo magically produces a fluidly smooth video that connects each of your points.
  • Time-lapse: create moving time-lapse videos by speeding up Rylo’ S stabilized video. Control how fast you want your video to play (up to 16x normal speed) and make professional-looking time lapse

 

 

Machinery’s Handbook, Pocket Companion – Product of the month

Think of this as the cliff notes for the official Machinery Handbook, at only .900″   thick this one is not a door stop.

Machinery’s Handbook Pocket Companion is designed for anyone in the machine trades for whom convenient access to just the most basic data is at a premium. Extremely concise yet authoritative, this invaluable tool draws on the wealth of tables, charts, and text in the Machinery’s Handbook, 30th Edition. Much of the subject matter is reorganized, distilled, or simplified to enhance this book’s usability and to keep its bulk down. Both practitioners and students will find the Pocket Companion to be a convenient ready-reference to keep nearby while working on the shop or factory floor or learning the fundamentals in the school lab. While it serves as a complementary text, this book does not replace the Handbook.

Runcam FPV camera – product of the month

If your looking for a cost effective onboard FPV HD recording solution the Runcam unit could be the right fit for you, a fraction of the cost of a GoPro with 1080P resolution. Bright Orange color makes it easy to find in the event of a crash.
