Given Imaging PillCam ESO (http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-541). About the size of a multi-vitamin, this disposable medical capsule has miniature cameras on both ends. Instead of sedating the patient to perform a traditional Endoscope probe of the esophagus, the patient simply swallows the pill. During its five minute journey, the cameras flash approximately 14 times per second taking about 2,600 color pictures, which are transmitted to a recording device worn by the patient. Size was one of the most important criteria, so engineers chose a proprietary bare die CMOS imaging chip from Micron Technology.

Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
