Source Audio Hot Hand (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-541). This motion-controlled effects unit allows guitarists to use hand motions instead of foot-operated pedal boards to provide unique, expressive sounds including 11 different effect types. A calibration control in the interface console allows adjustments of range, motion and speed of responsiveness. An Analog Devices’ ADXL320 iMEMS dual-axis accelerometer mounted on the guitarist’s finger provides the motion sensing. The accelerometer’s 4 x 4 x 1.45 mm plastic lead-frame chip-scale package (LFCSP) allows mounting on the finger. The unit’s ±5g range is well within the range of motions generated by a guitar player’s hand. For more information on Analog Devices ADXL320 accelerometer go to: http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-542.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
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.
