Big enough to hold a youngster up to 80 lb and produce walking sounds during a pretend ride, this 3-ft tall pony has a number of motion and sound effects. Either touching or talking causes its head to move. With interaction, the ears and tail wiggle, the eyes blink and it also makes whinny and snorting sounds when given its carrot or groomed with its brush. Built-in light and sound sensors allow the pony to sense the environment around it. Analog circuitry activates the motors in the head, tail and eyes, as well as providing the amplification for the sound effects.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
