Q3 Innovations ThermoHAWK Series Infrared Thermometer (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-543). Small enough to fit on a key chain, this pen-sized thermometer measures temperature within as little as 0.5s without contacting the object. The unit employs a patent-pending thermopile sensor on a chip technology to provide infrared sensing capability and extends the calibration requirements to several years. The metal cylinder case prevents electromagnetic and electrostatic interferences and also eliminates the effect of ambient temperature changes during temperature measurements. Available in a temperature range of -27 to 230F for household use or -27 to 428F, the units have 2.5 percent accuracy.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
