Design News recently relaunched its website, sporting a brand new look
and feel and enhanced content. The magazine is looking for engineers'
feedback--and is willing to pay for it.
Magazine staff will be showing the new website at the
Design News booth all
week, explaining its contents and asking engineers what they think. Those
engineers who view the site and offer their opinions will qualify to win a Sony
Check out the site and register online to enter the contest. You'll see new
sections, such as TalkBack, where engineers can post their opinions of articles
in the magazine or anything else; enhanced Gadget Freak pages to view the entire
schematics of some of our winning Gadget Freaks; research highlights; and even
more comprehensive channels - 17 in all!
Additionally, the magazine has revamped its email newsletters, giving readers
the choice of HTML or text versions. The newsletters, organized by technology
with additional versions for international, markets, Innovative Ideas, and
Gadget Freak, also contain links to other relevant editorial matter in
Design News. You can register to receive the newsletters on the
Design News site as well.
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
