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 Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
