Water-based coating for glassware incorporates dyes developed for solvents. The high level of solids in the product, which can be used in spraying and dipping processes, achieves coverage levels of between 500 and 625 sq ft/gal. The formula allows painted items to be handled six minutes after spraying in ambient temperatures, depending on humidity, with no forced-air circulation. When placed in an infrared oven at 125F, coated items dried in two minutes.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
