Innovative mammoth project or airborne slobbering?

The CargoLifter Project

The vision of CargoLifter AG, founded by Dr. Carl von Gablenz, the chairman of the board, in September 1996, is a global transport system based on helium airships for heavy loads. It is to be this "point to point" zu beliebigen Bestimmungsorten zu transportieren. From 2004, the CL160 with a length of about 260 meters and a diameter of about 65 meters will be produced in series. The flight performance of the airship is a range of 10.000 km at a maximum flight altitude of 2.000 m and a volume of 550.000 m3. The payload of 160 tons of the "Flying crane" means a weight of about 480 tons. This means that a CargoLifter would be about one third heavier than a fully loaded jumbo jet.

Wi-Fi-wireless memory card

Most inexpensive 3D printers may receive printed files for lack of network connection on a memory card or via the USB port. This is not only more duly, but in the long run for the printer card slot not healthy.

The project Espwebdav of the Github User Ardyesp If there is an elegant way: Over an SD card adapter, it does not only connect a micro SD card to the adapter connections, but also with an ESP8266 module. On this a WebDAV server works (WEb-ased DIstributed AUthoring and VESSIONING, Internet Protocol for transferring files), with the help of which files can be stored on the map memory on the map.

If you know that you know: something similar under the name Eyefi. These memory cards, especially for cameras, were able to transfer files on Wi-Fi to a map manufacturer’s internet server, from where you could then access it.
