All Sensors Corp. has announced the introduction of the Desktop Manometer, available for immediate purchase. The Desktop Manometer is provided in a kit complete with hardware and software to simulate and display an instrument-grade manometer. The Desktop Manometer consists of four components; a pressure sensor, small housing, interface cables (RS232 and USB), and software. Versions are available for three different pressure sensor series; digital, amplified, and amplified mini. Any digital, amplified, or amplified mini sensor can be used. Pressure sensor ranges are available from / inch water to 150 psi full scale. A high-accuracy barometer version is also available. Data acquisition can be measured in 12 standard pressure units. The software automatically produces a conversion between pressure units. Data sampling intervals range from 20 msec to 500 sec. Three operating modes are available; interactive, one shot, and free running. All Sensors Corp. http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-549
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10.

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
