IONICS' Plug Computer is an innovative, disruptive Computing platform
Plug Computer). A high performance full computer in a compact wall plug and
always-on (5W power only), the applications for the Home and Small Business
Server are innumerable, limited only by one's imagination. Several plugs varied
applications form a farm: dedicated Home
File Server (with remote access); multimedia server for DLNA-enabled players
(iPhone, etc); Web Proxy server; storage
of home video surveillance streams; automate downloads/uploads to popular photo
sharing websites; anti-virus; print server and more.
The Plug Computer as a software development kit is a unique platform
for software application developers, providing open source-based development
tools and documentation. With an open forum for developers to share ideas and
knowledge, traditional open source application development is made accessible
to a mass of base at lowest cost and greatest convenience. Applications
developed can be easily deployed globally and delivered through this
plugged-in-the-wall-and-play computer device. This transforms how computer
server software and hardware can be distributed to what is now an easy reach of
small companies and even startups. Wifi, Bluetooth, Z-wave, Zigbee and LTE
modules can be added to enable more applications. Unlike traditional PCs used
for home and small business servers which are big, costly and unwieldy to
operate, the Disruptive Technology of the Plug Computer lowers the server cost,
size and power consumption to unprecedented levels. Software solutions are
deployed in a creatively different way that is easy and amazingly cheap.
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.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
