Since I, too, know the pressure of impending deadlines, I would have solved it by putting the printer on the top shelf of the production line. Then I would have smashed the nearby table to bits with a hammer, thereby preventing me or anyone else from ever using it again.
As a reporter and section/supplement editor who's sweated through more deadlines than I care to remember, I was also really worried about that black cover. l've actually dreamed about my supplement coming out with a blank page, but the black cover takes the cake.
When I read this Sherlock Ohms, though, the first thing I thought of was that power cord, maybe because I've troubleshooted so many sound system and home office computer setups over the years.
More often than not in our Sherlock Ohmns columns, the problem has an absurdly simple solution. Of course, as I believe I've said in this forum before, a highly technical mind may not realize the simple fix right away.
As the Executive Editor of this magazine, I got chills just reading this post. This would be my worst nightmare. Of course, given my role here, I was less interested in how the engineer fixed the problem, and more concerned with whether the magazine with the black cover was printed on deadline.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
