Decent guitar stands are usually too big to fit in a guitar case. The little A-frame ones that do lack the stability rock n' rollers require to protect the instrument while jumping around the stage.
This device is basically a mountable latching clamp that consists of an angle bracket, a keyed receiver connected to the angle bracket for coupling with the instrument stand, and a spring latch for securing the instrument stand in the keyed receiver.
One configuration mounts under the handle of the amp without any permanent modifications, and the whole thing folds back out of the way when not in use. The grabber is available in five different models; most cost between $24.95 and $39.95.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
