Despite what you may have heard, exercise and video games have always had a strong connection. 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:
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
