richnass, That sounds pretty awesome and the cool thing about the demo is it was built using LabView's Embedded Development tools. One stop shopping!

For what it's worth, the musical contraption was amazing. They posted a countdown clock to let people know when the demo would start, and they'd have a big crowd each time it played.

Charles, It is amazing to see NI embrace electronics within there embedded development space. Although, NI is known for its Labview products, they have tied it to Multisim which is a powerful circuit schematic capture simulation software package. NI has integrated Multisim with ELVIS,an electronics prototyping platform'were students and Mechanical engineers can dive further into electrical-electronics technology. Agreed, nice slides!

Nice slide show. It's amazing to see how NI has quietly reached out to incorporate the world of embedded electronics in its business scope. Many engineers now routinely think of NI as an embedded company.

Nice slide show, Rich. I'd love to hear the musical contraption. Looks pretty cool. I also liked the robotic arm. Interesting how they're making these powerful robots gentle.

Rich, it is interesting to see some of the demos that were featured at NI Week.  Many of them are playful, but solving those problems can lead to practical algorithms that can then be used in more serious products.  Looks like it was lots of fun.

Latest Analysis
Perfection is a laudable, but ultimately unattainable, goal, even for the world's most successful consumer electronics company. You know the hits; here are Apple's all-time greatest misses.
Siemens' new version of Imagine Lab was designed to help the automotive and aerospace industries meet environmental mandates.
Belden and Secomea have developed a remote access system that gives users a plug-and-play connection to plant assets.
Here are some of the top-paying jobs available to engineers as they grow in their careers.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
