Yeah, that Dave Palmer sure is a swell guy.

Seriously, though, it's interesting to learn about the work all of these individuals are doing.  It was great to see a college student on the list -- especially one who is going to school while working full time.

It would be great if there were more women on the list, but unfortunately, I think this reflects the relatively low number of women in the engineering, especially electrical and mechanical engineering.  Hopefully, in coming years, we will start to see a greater proportion of women on lists like this.

Thanks Lauren. I agree--I noticed that Dave Palmer, who writes occasional columns for us, was on the list. And many of the others are also doing some fascinating work.

Hi Ann, No more women are on the list, but the next group of finialists are definitely interesting!

It's great to see a woman in this list. Lauren, are there more women among the finalists you'll be posting tomorrow?

We shared our list, now Design News readers tell us which artificial intelligence movies they watch again and again.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
Researchers have simplified the fabrication of the geometric requirements for fluid motion in microrobots for in vivo medical applications.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
