This year's Design Show attendees are going "back to school" during the
Gadget Freak Workshop running in the Design News booth (#2811). Those attendees
who complete a four-task challenge using relays and switches will receive a
bobble-head doll of the Freak himself. We have any tools, wire, and instruments
you need, so stop by the booth to reserve a time to sit down and freakout.
You can also vote on the Gadget Freak of the year with one voter coming away
with a $500 prize courtesy of Gadget Freak sponsor Allied Electronics.Go to http://www.dnsurvey.com and vote today!
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
