Originally devised to be worn by arms inspectors, an electronics-loaded vest has been adapted for use in investigation of crime scenes. The vest, called Team Leader, can contain an array of devices for quickly analyzing and transmitting vast amounts of information. Modules include a geographical information system, a multi-media computer, a digital video and still camera, voice recorder, a barcode scanner, and specialized sensors. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has teamed with Mnemonic Systems Inc. (Washington, DC) to develop the Team Leader.

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.
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
