Cree Inc.'s XLamp MT-G LEDs are for 35-50W halogen MR16
retrofit bulbs and other accent, track, display and down lighting used in
retail stores, residential settings, museums, art galleries, hospitality and
landscapes and are the first commercial LEDs to deliver sufficient light output
for these applications. The multi-die XLamp MT-G LED features Cree EasyWhite
technology to deliver consistent color in a small package. This LED is designed
for the high-lumen, small-footprint requirements of 35 and 50W halogen retrofit
lamps. The XLamp MT-G LED is tested at 85C which can simplify luminaire design
calculations and speed time-to-market. With a 9 x 9 mm footprint, the MT-G LED
delivers up to 560 lm at 1.1A at 85C or up to 1525 lm at 4A at 85 C in warm
white (3000K). Samples are available immediately and production volumes are
available with standard lead times.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
