I don't think I've mentioned it this week -- you might be interested to look at LeapMotion's new device for gestural recognition -- I'm suspecting (on darned little evidence) that they MAY have found a way to commercialize a spin-off of lenseless imaging, such that they're able to extract position data on-the-fly (under 30mSec latency, with a precision of 0.01mm). If you know anyone into virtual reality and heads-up display goggles, those have pretty much ALWAYS suffered from head-movement latency interference with "staying IN the virtual space". And (as I've pointed out to a few people) a device designed to be stationary with high-precision motion and gestural detection can just as easily be used as a spatial "mouse" to detect motion and orientation of goggles. And pretty much anything else. Expect to be seeing more of their stuff.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
