The fact that autodesk is getting into this type of software is not that all suprising. They have had 3DMax and I think they now have Maya which are used in 3d animation and games. I hope they can manage to keep the price tag of the software down. Back before EA studios bought all of the small and growing gaming studios, there was quite a lot of inexpensive software to aid a budding programmer or graphics artist. Now-a-days, it is unreachable for most without getting a huge discount.
I think that is one of the biggest advantages to the scalable technology, Cabe. So many applications are geared toward one platform or the another. However, for real world users, what works for one may not work for somebody else, even if they both want the same basic funtionality...or worse, the same person in two different situations.
Desktop development is not the only part of the Scaleform project. Mobile OS development is also in the mix. Not to mention, the UI builder is not just for games either. It is a great foundation for regular app development.
We all know that the engineering sector could use better mobile apps.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
