naperlou,

As you maybe aware, the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 controller has a TI ARM based processor (am1808) along with National Instruments Labview. Dr. T has taken not only the electronics industry to new heights but engineering education as well. These two powerful hardware and software components for LEGO's new controller shows his commitment to developing the next generation of engineers and scientists.

ARM has involved itself as a source of all things microcontroller and microprocessor based on its constant updating of hardware/software standards. Just like Dr. T, ARM has it's eye on the future by developing today's best practices, tools, and standards for microcontroller and microprocessor tehcnologies of the future.

Charles,

I agree. He is quite a visionary in the world of virtual instrumentation and embedded systems. He's also engineering education advocate as the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and NXT products are powered by NI's Labview software.

Dr. T has been, and continues to be, a visionary in test and embedded design. I'm betting that NI's efforts in the embedded world will have the same impact that its earlier technologies had in test.

Thanks Ann. I agree about Dr. T.'s speech. I particularly liked how he tied the Golden Mousetraps into our proximity to Disneyland.

Rob, Dr. Ts vision is spot on.  The electronics industry undergoes constant change.  Another vendor who has done a great job is ARM.

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
