I’ve been on the road since last Sunday, interviewing for potential job opportunities as I contemplate my transition out of graduate school and into the “real world”. I am a candidate for academic jobs, industry positions, and public service. By the time this trip is finished, I will have interviewed with at least one of each type of organization.
Tonight I am in Albuquerque, NM visiting Sandia National Lab. Sandia is well-known for its research in solar power and distributed energy. Entering Kirtland Airforce Base, where Sandia is located, I drove past an enormous solar testing facility. Based on the test set-ups I saw, I suspect researchers are comparing performance of several different kinds of solar panels under the same environmental conditions.
When my trip is concluded (and my Internet stays connected for longer than 2 minutes), I will provide a broader report on the interesting technology developments I saw at Sandia.
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.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
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
