Latest Analysis
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
This consulting firm has put together a report detailing the growing biomimicry design field in the US and around the world, from naturally bacteria-repelling surfaces to keratin-inspired polymers.
Here's a list of engineering and tech jobs ranked by outlook, work environment, stress, and income.
