Taking advantage of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) without a monitor, keyboard, mouse, or computer requires a sophisticated videophone. Packet8's videophone delivers delay-free audio and up to 30 frames per second video quality on a five-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) screen while capturing the user's image with a high-quality charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. The unit operates without a computer because of its own built-in digital computing capability. Designing video, audio or networking for new applications with field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) provides digital performance with reduced time-to-market, flexibility, and low cost. A Xilinx Spartan-3 Development Kit from Avnet Design Services provides the platform to easily develop and test designs targeted for the lowest cost per gate and lowest cost per I/O FPGA.

HP revealed more of its 3D printing plans in a recent webinar. Senior vice president of inkjet and graphics solution business Stephen Nigro spoke about how the technology works and expanded on HP's vision of open collaboration to commercialize its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology for end-production, and open collaboration on new materials. He also said HP will create software to help users decide when to use Multi Jet Fusion versus conventional subtractive manufacturing.
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
