Mid-Range Single-Axis Linear Output Electrolytic Tilt Sensor is a single sensor
solution that accurately measures a full tilt range while replacing legacy
designs which required multiple sensors.
The newest member of the company's patented TrueTILT product line, the sensor
provides a ±25 degree angle/±10 degree linear range, resolution is 1 arc sec, and null
repeat is = 10-arc sec.
The sensor is ideal for economical
commercial market applications such as construction laser instruments and
transits; wheel alignment equipment; geophysical and structural monitoring;
machine tool/platform leveling; and medical positioning and monitoring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
