I’m in a Southwest Airlines 737-300 flying to Baltimore from Manchester, N.H. Seating in exit row 12E, I’m in rough air or what I would classify as moderate turbulence (or chop in pilot parlance). It’s the kind where’s it’s hard to place my mouse pointer on the desired command. Do-able, but shaky (I have not been drinking either – the noon cocktail hour is still two hours away).
I’m at 34,000 feet, well above the storm lies below over New York and Boston (game one of the ALCS series is tonight between the Red Sox and Cleveland at Boston’s Fenway Park)
I am wondering about how the 787 would be damping the effects of this turbulence. We did a story on sensors capable of damping turbulence in our original coverage in May which has been much expanded since then. Of course, 787s are unlikely to be flying such short routes and we’ll have to wait a little longer given the six month delay in the first deliveries announced last week.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
