For those of you considering try-outs for "Who Wants to
be a Millionaire?" you'll want to bookmark SciTech Daily for its trivia value
alone. But you'll get so much more at www.scitechdaily.com .
SciTech Daily is a potpourri of links and information. There is news from around the world, a comprehensive listing of technology publications, plus a nice choice of a variety of "techie" sites. The links and materials change daily, but there are three main sections—Features and Background, Books and Media, and Analysis and Opinion.
On the day we reviewed the site, there were articles on: NASA robotics technology that could clean up maritime paint removal; how holograms will be storing movies, pictures, and computer data much sooner than anyone thinks; the world's largest parafoil soaring in a test where it carried the equivalent of NASA's six-person X-38 Crew Return Vehicle; and an "instant-on" memory device that could eliminate the need for hard drives.

A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
