Interesting observation, Naperlou. The vector processor was definitely played down compared to the emphasis on optimizing the software to support multicore architectures. Nevertheless, the outcome is the same: Enabling heavy duty simulation duties, which greatly improves engineers' ability to do larger and more intense simulations on complex assemblies--all good for the development of more sophisticated products.

Simulation pushes the computational envelope

This is another good example of a software need pushing the hardware to new heights.  The inclusion of the vector processor is really interesting and is a throwback to the mainframe era.  In the 1980s, using ANSYS and other, similar codes, we purchased a vestor processing facility to attach to our IBM mainframes.  This was a great approach to speeding up engineering codes.  Many engineering codes are more amenable to speedup with a vector processor than a massively parallel machine.

XYZ, Rabbit, and Disney innovate on the 3d printer in different ways -- from price point to using materials such as yarn.
MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
New software from Carnegie Mellon allows 2D objects -- digital photos, old photos, and even paintings -- to be manipulated in 3D using models found online.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
