Pico-projectors are getting smaller, but they're projecting sharp high resolution images as large as 60 inches. 3MTM recently unveiled the MM200 Mobile Projection Engine, which uses less than 1W of LED power to project a 15-inch image in a normally lighted room or up to 60 inch in a darkened room. The battery-operated module, which is only 10-mm thick, is based on an imager from Displaytech® that generates 360 color fields per second over a temperature range of -10 to 70C. 3MTM also makes a line of MPro Professional Projectors, which are shrinking the size of projection systems.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
