What is the concept Yura?

Yura is your personal flying bartender creating custom cocktails and juices for you. It can receive your voice commands or take tasks from his sensory body screens or your phone. It has a smart cartridge for liquid that can heat or cool cocktail for your needs. Smart brain will configure power settings, navigation map, voice commands, wi-fi, mail and soft downloads. Creative brain will configure temperature of liquid, the number of calories, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. And of course you can set how much liquid you want to drink.

What was the inspiration behind your concept?

Just imagine the morning after hard party :) The bottle of mineral water is flying directly to your hands! If speak seriously this is cool to have such drone that can make different cocktails whenever you want. The idea is speaking by itself. Morning run, football matches at the stadiums, music concerts, communication with ukrainian military forces, new startups - yes, my life is great! Interesting days and nights is the main inspiration for me. So the Yura concept was born!

How do you think your concept will change peoples’ lives?

Just speak! Just drink! Children and parents will have the new member of the family. Yura will fly after you while you will run in the morning. Yura will make for you the cup of coffee in the office. Do you want a party with friends? Don't worry about your cocktail card! Every day with Yura will give you full potential of your water balance in your body. You will be more healthy and more happy with Yura. More then 70% of water in your body will thank to you!

Still the cooles bartender one can have. Good work with the nice renderings, though I do miss a bit of the more sharp/angular/crisp design on the sketch concepts. But how would this machine indeed fly… That you can explain in the next stage when answering the functionality brief. Good luck, looking forward to seeing it!

Healthy home

Just add bright colors to your world prism! And the life will be more interesting and beautiful.

Healthy home is a type of thinking that begins from your thoughts and runs to your actions.


The Bull Power!

  • The Bull Power!

This is some new powered up stuff for Yura concept! Do you want more energy!) Seriously the concept can be used in the widest range of areas of people life! Sport and extreme sport are an integral part of healthy homes.


Navigation

  • Navigation
+

The Yura has its own GPS navigator and his software is supporting additional navigation maps that you can load into his memory. Built-in altimeter provides data to accurately display the values of increase and loss of the flight attitude. Electronic compass shows the view direction of the drone. Electric turntables with six degrees of freedom allow to perform any maneuvers within the premises. Safety laser scanner allows Yura to get information about the obstacles in front of the robot. So lampposts on the terrace or randomly moving pedestrians will not cause a collision of drone with an obstacle. In addition Smart House System can be synchronized with GPS navigator of Yura. So my drone will get access to doors and windows for unimpeded delivery of drinks.


Cartridge design

  • Cartridge design

Work in progress! This is new design of Yura Smart Cartridge. Central core has two filter circles with ionization camera. Outer ring of cartridge has two thermal circles with X-Ray lamps for liquid sterilization. I added an outer metal ring for cartridge functionality enhancements. Also the fixation of cartridge become more intresting. Embedded parts of fastener elements are using for energy transporting that is produced by hydrogen production from acid water. Here you can see how the cartridge will be look like.


Water ionization

  • Water ionization
+

I would like to show you some information about water ionization process. This process is necessary for Yura’s smart cartridge. The liquid into cartridge will divide into alkaline water and acidic water. First liquid is filtering and passing through X-Ray lamp. Then it is passing through ionization camera with titanium-platinum plates. So we will have alkaline water that is good for drinking and acidic water that will be used as additional energy source. The porous membranes between the electrodes into ionization camera are dividing the liquid into two streams in a ratio of 75% of alkaline water and 25% of acidic water.

Alkaline water is good for drinking, cooking, washing fruits and vegetables. This water exerts antioxidant effect and removes toxins from human body. Acidic water is good for cleaning and personal hygiene items. I suggest to use acidic water for topping up the battery of Yura. So the kinetic accumulator will be working with the additional energy source from cartridge.


Sport & Health

You can see how this pretty girl is running her workout distance. I think that Yura robot can be usefull for this. Droid will scan parametrs of your body and the state of environment. With this information Yura will make custom fresh cocktail with necessary number of calories for you after you will finish your exercises in the morning.
GPS navigator of Yura is scanning distance for running man or woman. The navigation system of my robot reads obstacles while flying. So you can take Yura for your morning run.


What about stadiums?

  • What about stadiums?
+

My congratulations to the German National Football Team! The Final of Fifa World Cup 2014 was really cool! So I thought to make possible the use of Yura more wide. For example such droids as Yura could serve fans on stadiums. You can see at this image how ukrainian fans watching for Dynamo Ultras Fans! That was impressive :) If you want to drink something on stadium you will forget for crowd around the bar. Just say what drink you want. If robot will not have such fresh as you want he will send message for closest free Yura that will serve you immediately.


The biggest and smallest

Unmanned autonomous helicopters is a really cool thing! Today the most wide using sphere of them is military combat operations. I think that twenty years later using sphere of them will affect service sector. In justification of it I can say that mobile telephones and GPS navigators also were some fantastic things about thirty years ago.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is an American global aerospace and defence technology company that developed the biggest active unmanned autonomous helicopters. Best two models called as Northrop Grumman Fire Scout MQ-8B and MQ-8C. Top speed of these models is above 200 kilometers per hour. Top range is above 150 kilometers. Flight duration is above 10 hours. Good @gadgets@, especially for military operations.

Boeing Hummingbird A160 made its first flight in January 2002, using a 4-cylinder Subaru engine. Maybe it is the biggest unmanned autonomous military helicopter that have lenght about 10,7 meters. But what about the smallest UAVs? Many people know about Parrot AR.Drone that is designed to be controlled by mobile or tablet operation systems such as the supported iOS or Android. This drone is a radio controlled flying quadcopter helicopter built by the French company Parrot. The airframe of the AR.Drone, constructed of nylon and carbon fiber parts, measures 55 cm across. Two interchangeable hulls were supplied with the airframe, one designed for indoor and one for external flight. The indoor hull is made from foam, and encases the circumference of the blades for protection. The outdoors use hull is made from lightweight plastic, and allows for increased manoeuvrability. The onboard computer runs a Linux operation system, and communicates with the pilot through a self-generated Wi-Fi hotspot. The onboards sensors include an ultrasonic altimeter, which is used to provide vertical stabilisation up to 6 meters.

Yura droid is unmanned autonomous helicopter that navigated by his own programmed brain. Robots hull is made from lightweight metal with carbon fiber parts. Self-recharging kinetic accumulator drives two turntables with 6 degrees of freedom. So flight duration of Yura must provide his flying for full day. All described UAVs make possible the developing of my concept. And I think that such personal drones could change people lifes in good manner.


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

There was Yura Empire…

New gadgets and futuristic films are inspiring me – especially for this competition. So I am showing you some promo of Yura.

Sketching… Designing… Thinking… It is very interesting endless process. Yura will have touch panels on his body, quitest turntables, spherical folding cups and smart cartridge for liquid. Metallic elements should provide durability and strength of body.

Darth Vader likes it!

And of course the force will be with you..!

I want to introduce to you some body interface of my Yura droid. I made him both smart and creative.
Left part of the body of droid will help customer to configure power settings, navigation map, voice commands, wi-fi, mail and to get soft downloads from the official electrolux site (right side on the image).
Right part will help you to work with healthy cocktail suite. You can set the temperature of liquid, the number of calories, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. And of course you can set how much liquid you want to drink (left side on the image).
In addition you can configure all these settings by voice commands. As you finished you will have healthy cocktail of the future in your own hands.
And I designed the logo of Yura product. It combines two letters – “Y” & “U”. Logo shows how the robot pours into the glass liquid. YURA = Y&U = You = Customer. It’s easy! :)
