Fans of the Design News “Mechatronics Zone” will find a fresh look at the MechZone microsite, mechzone.designnews.com, that is if you’re not here now. The new site includes sections for News, Blogs, and Resources along with a list of Popular Videos and Related Links. You can bookmark this site and or you can still get to it directly via the regular Design News site by looking under the Technology Beats, Blogs, and Hot Topics tabs.

And, yes, you can still leave comments for we bloggers and editors. We also welcome comments about the new organization of and value of the information on the MechZone site. –Jon Titus
