Richard, there is no doubt that technology can be used in almost all games for accurate and pin point decision making. In cricket, such technologies are using for concluding the third umpire decisions.
Rich, I'm all for the addition of instant replay for baseball umps. I've seen too many heartbreaking wrong calls. I'd like to see it stop calls like the one that cheated Armando Galarraga of the Tigers out of his perfect game in 2010.
I too attended a game at Wrigley Field. Lovely stadium. When I attended, Harry Caray leaned out of the announcer's window and sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Unforgettable.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
Using Siemens NX software, a team of engineering students from the University of Michigan built an electric vehicle and raced in the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. One of those students blogged for Design News throughout the race.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
