Xandem - Very interesting system and nice web site

A very interesting product and I am going to be interested in watching developments.  I have designed several security intrusion systems for industrial use (e.g. protecting pump rooms from unauthorized intrusion) and it has always been a bit of a struggle fitting in standard motion and IR sensors so you get coverage, etc.

Although obviously still a product in it's infancy, there are a lot of interesting ideas percolating in my brain at the moment. Cost may certainly be a problem, lack of suppliers, etc but the potential for easy installation, configuration at a central location, etc are very intriguing.

Xandem's web site is very well done, by the way.

Overall I've got this in my 'keep an eye on it' folder.

I wonder if it has the potential to be used to see inside components as part of an assembly line quality control system.

Rob, the Xandem website lists some potential applications. Most of them fall into the security/surveillance category you already identified. The other area was building automation.

Interesting technology. I'm curious about what the applications for this would be. Surveillance is an obvious one. That and security.

Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
