Listening to it right now... Just finished going through the slides (MUCH prefer the PDF instead of powerpoint; good move). Was amused -- you remember yesterday I asked about LeapMotion? They are doing a 3D sensor play with jawdropping precision (repeatable position-determination of 0.01 millimeters, ten micrometers). THEY aren't saying a whole lot about how they do it, but the only bit I'm missing at this point is whether they are using more than one CCD sensor (some element of triangulation, possibly). Infrared light, lenseless, shadowmask, calibrate with an empty field-of-view speckle pattern which is constantly applied to NEW sensor frames; the intellectual property is the algorithms which extract position and distance data from the sensor stream.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
