critical but but often least recognized component of a system

Very interesting solution to the challenging of wiring with some good options. As a test engineer, I had a deep appreciation for one of our technicians that had gained a reputation as being able to neatly organize wiring in the test sets we were building. It is a little thought about yet extremely important task. I remember at one place i worked (out of business now), they had fiber optic cables running across the floor and chairs and scope carts with wheels - I remember cringing the first time I went down to the lab. Wiring is very important and indeed challenging - almost as much art as science. Working in the test equipment group, we were building in-house test sets which may not sound difficult to maintain since it is designed and built in-house and used in-house and typically each test set is unique - but people come and go and years pass and then it's "hey - let's modify this test set or upgrade that test set" and consistent and understandable wiring schemes make the task much easier. And yes - those adhesives mounts are tempting because they are quick and easy but very annoying when the adhesive degrades to the point of no longer holding...

Cable management is indeed a facet that can make or break large networks but so is cable labeling. 

Solidworks Electrical can also let you simulate cable layouts virtually. Check into that...

@greg: Any idea about the thickness of the cable ? Also how secure is it ?

Push-On Cable Tie Mount

Really like the push-on cable tie mount that has to be unscrewed to remove.  Quick way to install in a manufacturing environment, but secure enough in the field to retain the cables.

The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team Ł100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
