ElizabethM, I agree. The systems and gadgets shown in the slideshow were pretty impressive. Wondering if the Kawasaki High Performance Palletizing Robot was for entertainment or on display for customer inquiry. How big of a turn out was it at the show? Nice looking slides Jennifer!

I think you did a fine job presenting some of the more eye-catching designs and inventions, Jenn. It's fascinating to see what is coming out of the minds of designers these days! I couldn't help be reminded of Star Wars when I saw the holographic woman and the Solid Concepts robot (the latter looking strangely like the Star Wars character Boba Fett--yes, I am a nerd!). Intersting how long it's taken for some of the scifi dreamed up in films to become a part of reality.

It jusy goes to show how big an event it was. I was there for three days and only saw a few of these things.

It's worth mentioning that additive manufacturing was huge at the show. Seemed like it was everywhere. The futurist who spoke at one of the show's keynotes even predicted that it would eventually be bigger than the Internet.

Somehow, I missed the virtual woman, Jenn (maybe there was a crowd around it). What does it do? Talk? Move?

No worries naperlou.  The virtual woman (and man) is already being used in France at the Orly airport.



This is a fun slide sow.  I wish I could have made it down to Anaheim!

Jenn, thanks for posting this. I think it's a good summary and overview of the range of things on offer at the show.

I couldn't agree more @naperlou. I shot photos of the things that caught my eye. If you've ever been to the show, you know that it would take a month to include everything worth including.

Jenn, your first six slides were interesting, but did not seem somehow, well, practical.  I was going to comment on the virtual woman, but that would just get me in trouble. 

I did find interesting the automation robots and systems in the later slides.  Industrial robotics just keeps getting more sophiscated.  I work with some companies that make components for such devices and it is a very interesting field.

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.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
Enterprising Tesla Model S owner Steve Sasman seems to have figured out a way of recouping some of the cost on his car by renting the trunk out on AirBnB, the room/house rental website.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
