playful to practical

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
