As mobile phones offer functions far beyond simple telephonic communications, the human machine interface becomes more important. KEYnetik Inc. developed a Motion Enabled Prototype Phone that lets owners navigate with just one hand. Users can select icons by simply tilting the device in the desired direction and pressing a button when their selection is highlighted. A pair of Analog Devices' ADXL330 iMEMS accelerometers are key components, providing six degrees of freedom and filtering out motion interference by determining where the force is coming from. Automatic screen rotation and simplified gaming control are also features of the prototype phone.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
