LEDs provide endless possibilities, but commensurate with that are the design challenges. Join LED expert and entrepreneur Carol Lenk and Design News Content Director Alex Wolfe as they discuss practical applications, including: How do you get started in LED design? How do you pick an LED? What are some of the design "gotchas"? And Why are LEDs poised to take over as the default light source?
Speaker(s): Carol Lenk
Carol Lenk is an MIT-educated entrepreneur who was a founder of the venture-backed LED developer, Superbulbs, and is currently associated with Reliabulb. She is co-author of the book, Practical Lighting Design with LEDS
. She has a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and a Masters in Math and Science Education. One of the early pioneers in applying LEDs to general lighting, Lenk has five years of experience in combining theoretical concepts with practical engineering in fields as diverse as optics, thermal modeling, material science, electronics, and mechanical design. She has more than a dozen US and worldwide patents-pending related to LED lighting.

It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
