Black Cherry propulsion and propellers are a few of the latest buzzwords that have entered the world of robotics, and they’re all made by the same company.
They’re also a big part of the company’s growth story, according to CEO David J. McQuaid.
McRae’s company, called Black Cherry, makes propellers, which are basically tiny little propellers.
And McQuae said the company saw a need to take the concept to the next level.
“The main thing that drives us is innovation, and the way that innovation happens is through people creating new products,” McQuaysaid.
The company currently makes its engines, propellers and motors at a factory in the city of Wilmington, Delaware.
The manufacturing process is called “inertial confinement.”
That means that the engine is kept at a very low temperature while the propellers are being cooled to the point where they’re no longer hot.
But, once they reach the manufacturing process, they’re put into an “in-flight” system and then flown into a vacuum chamber where they start to spin.
Then they’re transferred to a pressurized chamber where the propeller can be cooled further.
The result is a tiny, spinning propeller.
“If you’re not spinning it is very fragile,” McRaysaid, a former NASA astronaut and now an entrepreneur.
McQueen’s propulsion company, Black Cherry Technology, also makes the Propeller Hat Kid, which is the company name for a small, lightweight, reusable, high-performance, multi-purpose, and low-cost toy, according the company website.
Propellers and their accessories are typically used in sports vehicles, helicopters, commercial jets, and airplanes.
It’s not clear if McQueen would be interested in making propellers or even if the company has the ability to manufacture them, but his company did make a few prototypes.
“It’s just a matter of bringing these things out and proving that people can make them and that they’re safe,” McQueen said.
“We’ll just have to see what happens.”
Black Cherry’s propellers use lithium-ion batteries that McQuay said he’s currently working on to make them more durable and energy-efficient.
He said he hopes to make a product that’s ready for mass production within five years.
“The most important thing is to build a system that will work for millions of people,” McBride said.
He hopes the company can take advantage of that and create a product people can use in the future.
McBride hopes that the Prokelyard will be a great way for kids to learn about robotics and help them build their own robots, and he’s already begun working on the prototypes.
And if all goes well, Black Cheers will soon be available for kids at a price point similar to what you might pay for a GoPro Hero5 Black or GoPro Hero3 Black.
