Sharp Systems of America has come out with the Actius RD3D notebook computer, which uses the company's TFT 3D LCD technology in a 15-inch screen and switches between 3D to 2D viewing. Engineers achieved the 3D effect by dividing the light from the LCD in different patterns and directing the different images to the left and right eyes. Viewers see the image in 3D when it is centered in front of the display. For more info, go to www.sharp3d.com.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
