A coffee table book on an iPad chronicling aviation history. Steve Jobs would be proud! Seriously, I've come across several companies leveraging the state-of-the-art visual display and interactive capabilities of the iPad (as well as other tablets) as a marketing/information tool. A great use of the technology and one that might get engineers interested in higher utility applications that can actually help them get their every day jobs done.
Wow, what bad timing. My son, who got an iPad when he enrolled in university just sold it. I would have liked to view this, but I don't think that $500 is worth it. Frankly, he spends lots of time reading books (from novels to textbooks) on his Kindle. He sold the iPad for the money and becuase he wanted an MP3 player for music.
Elizabeth is it just a product info app or any other intensions are behind it. I mean any other functionality like acessing boeing website, contacting customer care centre for seeking further info's through the apps or any other one to one communications are possible.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
