Boeing this week announced shipment of its 1,400th 747. That’s hard to imagine. My first flight on the venerable jumbo jet was in 1972 from Chicago to Boston (United, I think). And the most recent one was last year from Boston to Frankfurt (row 55, the last where the seats don’t recline…very noisy behind the engines).
The 1,400th was a 747-400 Freighter delivered to GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS) for lease to AirBridgeCargo Airlines, a subsidiary of the Volga-Dnepr Group, according to the press release.
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.
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.
