I haven't experienced the energy saving dance floor-yet.  I also love the people powered sidewalks.  Toulouse, France tested them out a few years ago to power the streest lights but I haven't seen any news or results since.

Follow up on real-world applications for these amazing new technologies would be great!

Nice slideshow Rich. Love the huggable car from Phoenix Contact. I also like the energy-grabbing dancefloor. How many times have you heard people say "I wish we could bottle that energy" when they're watching active young people. With this dancefloor, now it's possible.

This was quite amusing. I hope they weren't mocking environmental friendly cars with this because that would be so wrong. It might as well have been something to raise awareness, though I don't get the point of using a Beetle for this.

2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
