Lab Tests Show Knee Brace Power Generation
DNTV 2/14/2008 Post a comment When in the generative braking energy harvesting mode, this knee brace isprogrammed to only engage toward the end of the leg¿s swing phase to produce electricity. Subjects wear masks to measure the metabolic energy expended during the test.
Welland Canal's Old Winch System in Action
DNTV 2/11/2008 Post a comment History recorded! Here we see the old winch system that operates the north gates on Lock 3 as a bulk carrier heads west toward Lake Erie. We see the gates in action using this drive, which has about another 45 days to go after 75 years of use.
Welland Canal Gates in Action
DNTV 2/11/2008 Post a comment Continuing to shoot from the twinned flight locks' center pier, we see a cylinder in action as it opens a gate. Then a tug pulling a barge pulls into Lock 5 in the westbound lane heading toward Lake Erie.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
