Re: March 18 - Day ONE: What Can You Do With Embedded Vision?

NO RATINGS
As I wrote just last night in an article I'm working on:

Electronic systems are also adept at detecting and accentuating minute image-to-image variations that the human visual system is unable to perceive, whether due to insufficient sensitivity or inadequate attention. As research at MIT and elsewhere has showcased, for example, it's possible to accurately measure a person's pulse rate simply by placing a camera in front of him or her and logging the minute facial color changes over time that are reflective of capillary blood flow. Similarly, embedded vision systems can precisely assess respiration rate by measuring the periodic rise and fall of the subject's chest.

This same embedded vision precision can find use in providing early-warning indication of neurological disorders such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and Parkinson's disease. Minute trembling, so slight that it may not yet even be perceptible to the subject, is less likely to escape the perceptive gaze of an embedded vision-enabled piece of medical gear. Slight gait aberrations are another possible neurological abnormality warning sign.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
Engineers can channel the eye of the tiger and rise to the challenge, with a number of prize or award-giving contests out there to test your metal and intellectual prowess.
