Voices of Innovation wants to hear your stories of engineering ingenuity and the significant role that engineers play in society, and they want to broadcast it over the radio. You might realize how exciting engineering can be, but everyone else out there may not. Voices of Innovation broadcasts two-minute stories each weekday over public and commercial radio stations, tapping into the imagination of the engineer. To relay an engineering story, go to www.voicesofinnovation.org/idea.
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.
