Rich, it is interesting to see some of the demos that were featured at NI Week. Many of them are playful, but solving those problems can lead to practical algorithms that can then be used in more serious products. Looks like it was lots of fun.
Nice slide show. It's amazing to see how NI has quietly reached out to incorporate the world of embedded electronics in its business scope. Many engineers now routinely think of NI as an embedded company.
Charles, It is amazing to see NI embrace electronics within there embedded development space. Although, NI is known for its Labview products, they have tied it to Multisim which is a powerful circuit schematic capture simulation software package. NI has integrated Multisim with ELVIS,an electronics prototyping platform'were students and Mechanical engineers can dive further into electrical-electronics technology. Agreed, nice slides!
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And they’re doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two men’s design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.

Three days after NASA's MAVEN probe reached Mars, India's Mangalyaan probe went into orbit around the red planet. India's first interplanetary mission, and the first successful Mars probe launched by an Asian nation, has a total project cost of nearly $600 million less than MAVEN's.
Plant user interfaces are beginning to incorporate the consumer features such as swipe, double tap, and pinch. The driver is Millennials who expect plant equipment to match the sophistication of the smartphone.
