You connect the game console to the TV, connect your butt to the sofa, and let the virtual athletes do all the running and heavy lifting. Yet gamers may soon find themselves breaking into a real sweat even while engaged in their normally sedentary hobby. New controllers on display at the recent Consumer Electronics Show can help whip gamers into shape by turning their gaming systems into exercise machines. Here's a look at two such devices — one based on a treadmill concept and another on isometric muscle contractions. And while we're on the subject of exercise, a third device helps couch potatoes incorporate their favorite television show into their aerobic workouts. To read about the products, click below:
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
