Based on the lineup of articles here, this is shaping up to be a fantastic show! I am most looking forward to hearing what JB Straubel has to say about electric cars.

The Volt teardown will be mobbed. All kinds of engineers -- mechanical, electrical and electronic -- want to see the Volt.

Good, it seems that a set of new products are lining up to showcase. I hope I can found more information about Freescale Kinetic L Series MCU.

Please note that Design News is sponsoring the Sensors in Design summit, which is part of DESIGN West. We'll have a great program, including deep dives into MEMS, smart sensors, sensors in harsh environments, and a lot of great speakers.

This is great to put the spotlight on sensor technology.  With sensors and feedback devices getting smarter and the communications options getting so much stronger with the potential of wireless, sensors are becoming a critical building block.  Good stuff that will definitely be making an impact on new designs.

It's worth noting that Alex will be chairing the event and Randy Frank, author of "Understanding Smart Sensors," will be chairing one of the sessions.

It's worth noting that when I first starting attending Design West about a dozen years ago, there was very little automotive electronics technology there. In the ensuing 12 years, the content in the average car has jumped from roughly 20% electronics to almost 40% electronic.

That's interesting about the explosion in the focus on automotive at Design West. Even before the development of hybrids and EVs, the portion of electronics in cars was expanding. Now, many cars are becoming electronics devices.

If you’ve noticed the recent news about electric cars and batteries, then it’s easy to wonder about the continuing wisdom behind public subsidies for EVs.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
A group of collaborators wants to recast MacGyver or a show similar to it with a female protagonist as part “The Next MacGyver” competition, in order to get young girls interested in STEM fields.

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?
