PenGUIn human machine interface
(HMI), targeting machine-building applications is a new machine-HMI line
featuring a powerful combination of monitoring, control and communication
capabilities. Besides the standard HMI functionality, the PenGUIn HMI comes
with powerful protocol conversion, port sharing and web server capability, all
of which are configured and managed by GUIcon software package.
PenGUIn comes in four screen sizes: 6, 8, 10 and 15 inches. It can be
equipped with up to six serial ports and two ethernet ports and is capable of
managing up to 13 different protocols simultaneously. These can be selected
from an extensive list of more than 200 protocols via GUIcon software. Optional
communication cards include: CAN, DeviceNET, ProfiBUS, GSM and RS232/485. The
built-in web and e-mail server allows remote monitoring, remote program
modifications and diagnostics and alarm notifications. This reduces maintenance
or servicing costs. Recipes can be locally stored and accessed using optional
CF memory cards.

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.
