Developed specifically for pets, this voice-enabled cell phone allows the owner to call and talk to his/her best friend. The waterproof 5 × 2.5 × 9.4 cm unit easily fits on a collar that goes around the pet's neck. The owner can also establish a geofence boundary in which the pet must stay. If this area is exceeded, the phone automatically calls the owner's cell phone or any pre-programmed number. Using the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) sensor in the phone, the pet can easily be located. A built-in temperature sensor provides input regarding the pet's environment.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
