LO/FR Poron(reg) urethane foams are flame-retardant to UL94 HBF and MVSS 302 and provide low outgassing levels, which enable the foams to achieve the current automotive fogging tests. The raw materials for the LO/FR Poron grades are also compliant with the existing and emerging environmental content requirements and do not require any special notification, labeling, or deviations. LO/FR Poron grades are available in different formulations. Applications in the electronics industry include PCB shock/vibration cushions, LCD gaskets, and ribbon connector pressure pads.
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. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
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.
