I just heard from those little rascals at Synapse Wireless. It seems that they are offering everyone the chance to win a free wireless networked propeller beanie (Click here to enter).
As you may recall, these little scamps (the folks at Synapse, not the propeller beanies) have been busily beavering away in their top-secret underground command bunker implementing CapNet -- the world's first wireless mesh network to be deployed in propeller beanies. CapNet will be unveiled for the very first time at DESIGN West 2013.

Charles, I agree. The Synapse Wireless Mesh Network tech is quite easy to use. I wanted to implement a new wireless hand remote for Hunter Fans using the Synapse Wireless Mesh tech but manage felt the piece price was too steep for their customers. The programming language of choice used in Synapse Wireless Mesh Network technology is Python. CapNet is another example of wearable technology and the fun devices that can be implemented with it. I can see cool apps being develop with CapNet. Nice article Max!!!
MEMS sensing the fow of ideas from the keyboard (or other HMI). It seems likely that the greatest aggregate rate would be achieved if all were thinking independantly, or synergizing off other trains. There's no need to waste time on meetings if everyone's thinking the same.
That's darned cool, Jenn, quite a step forward from our beanie propellers. I've been braced for all types of technology advances, from pharmaceuticals to cars, but I never thought they're improve on the beanie cap.
I imagine a development team meeting where all the participants are wearing them. They're driven by servo motors, all running in sync with an anonymous iphone in the room in control. They speed up and slow down together to the tempo of the discussion. When the ideas start to flow, the blades start spinning cooling all those over-clocked brain cells. No wonder they call us nerds...
That may be a good stereotype to cement, TJ. I have propeller caps for me and my kids. They're acoustic -- not fueled. They work in some instances -- like going to the zoo -- but I'm not sure I'd recommend wearing one to work.
In November, a European space probe will try to land on the surface of a comet moving at about 84,000 mph and rotating with a period of 12.7 hours. Many factors make positioning the probe for the landing an engineering challenge.
Mistakes in power distributions are not all that common, but they do exist. We look at some of these mistakes and disaster scenarios with the intention being to inform readers to be wary of repeating such mistakes when designing their power distribution system.
