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!

For what it's worth, the musical contraption was amazing. They posted a countdown clock to let people know when the demo would start, and they'd have a big crowd each time it played.

richnass, That sounds pretty awesome and the cool thing about the demo is it was built using LabView's Embedded Development tools. One stop shopping!

Nice slide show, Rich. I'd love to hear the musical contraption. Looks pretty cool. I also liked the robotic arm. Interesting how they're making these powerful robots gentle.

The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Automation technology advances matched with expanded fracking and the growing urbanization of Asia, South America, and the Middle East, are fueling a boom in the automation industry.
