Charles, I have wondered for quite some time as to how a system such as this works. In years passed I was tested every three months for BMI that involved percent body fat relative to muscle, etc etc. This is a program I volunteered for some time ago and is sponsored by one of the hospitals in our city. In the early days of this program, a "standard" method of calculating body fat was used; i.e. calipers. I'm told there is a significant improvement when using the scales and the medical practitioners now use only this method. Quite impressive and much less time consuming. This means you get the bad news and the lecture even sooner.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
