Rob thank you for bringing this important issue to light, I think it is in deed a great idea. As time goes there are some great changes with technology. This course will actually help many people to keep up to what they already know and new things as well. Since it is also online based, I think it will be more interactive and enjoyable course. This is the best avenue of exploring the robot world. @Jeniffer, it is very true that this is a cant-miss course.

I second the motion for a webinar on this. Getting a closer look would indeed allow us to see just how far we've come in regards to our mechanical friends.

FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS

Thank you Rob for the information.  As with any technology, the evolution of components and products keeps growing and growing.  I'm finding a refresher course in the fundamentals is almost needed each year just to stay up to date. I think robotic systems will only improve as time goes by with dramatic changes over the next decade.  We are a long way from "rise of the machines" but the advances are absolutely striking.  Thank you again.

Great idea for a webinar, Rob, and a good chance to look under the hood of the robots we're all writing about.

I agree, Jenn. And we're going to have some great participants from the robotics industry. We'll have more info on that soon.

I can't think of a better topic than Robotics to start off our Focus on Fundamentals series. This is definitely a can't-miss course.

Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
