This has always been one of my favorite sections of Design News.  I look forward to the new and whacky things people think up each and every issue.

 

Maybe one day something I think up will be here as well, but nothing I fiddle with is even remotely ready!

Fun to read all these gadgets. I'm too lost for fun stuf, but as something to be happy about: just completed development of a high temperature tilt senor that works at ove 210C in a continuous mode. It was great to see that it operated for over 3 weeks in a 210C oven 24/7.

Thank you. It may be a nice idea I'm not familiar with the procedure on how to do that. If you have any directions on how to do that, I would be glad to submit.

Devices and interconnected systems are finding a foothold not only in our homes but in mainstream organizations. Here are three tips to mitigate the risk.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
