A power-operated air propelling work apparatus includes: an air flow pipe including an air inlet opening, an air outlet opening and a pipe wall formed between the air inlet opening and the air outlet opening to define an air flow passageway inside the pipe wall; an electric air propelling fan disposed within the air flow passageway for sucking in air from the air inlet opening and blowing out air from the air outlet opening; an apparatus housing surrounding and supporting the air flow pipe and forming a housing space between the apparatus housing and the air flow pipe; and a control circuit unit disposed within the housing space for controlling an operation of the electric air propelling fan, wherein the pipe wall is formed with an air passage hole by which the air flow passageway and the housing space communicate with each other.. .


Self contained coal processing unit

A mobile coal processing unit can be loaded onto a truck and driven to an actual coal mine to break and sort coal. Once at the coal mine the mobile coal processing machine can self-propel itself to a desired location where it is to process coal.


Flying battle game system using multirotor-type flying robots, and flying battle game method using thereof

A flying battle game system using multirotor-type flying robots, and a flying battle game method using thereof are disclosed. In some embodiments, under the system, each multirotor-type flying robot runs an offline flying battle game, and the robot contains a body in which a battery is equipped; a propulsion unit that comprises a plurality of propellants that receive power supply to move from the battery; an infrared (ir) transmitting/receiving unit at the body that transmits and receives ir signals; an illumination unit at the body that flickers in different patterns according to the robot's flying motion; and a control unit at the body that receives control signals from a wireless manipulator and then controls the ir transmitting/receiving unit, the illumination unit and movements of the propellants, wherein the propulsion unit lets the multirotor-type flying robot have flying motions of perpendicular ascent and drop by rotary propellers' motion according to a rotation of a motor that works by power supply from the battery..
