Neonode N1m (http://rbi.ims.ca/4915-541). This mobile phone is also a digital camera, video player and MP3 player with an unusual human machine interface . To get a large display for graphics in a 88 × 52 × 21-mm form factor, Neonode engineers used touch-screen technology to provide an on-screen keyboard eliminating the traditional keyboard. Designed for one-hand navigation, a thumb sweeping over and tapping the screen easily accesses all the features. USB connectivity allows videos to be transferred from a computer to the unit's 1 Gbyte SD Card memory. Power management circuitry in the unit boosts the Li-ion battery's voltage to the level required by the display and the backlight.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
