This is a musical tribute to two great men of science. Carl Sagan and his cosmologist companion Stephen Hawking present: A Glorious Dawn - Cosmos remixed. Almost all samples and footage taken from Carl Sagan's Cosmos and Stephen Hawking's Universe series.
Fairchild Semiconductor's FSQ510 supports energy efficient power supplies. It is an integrated valley switching pulse width modulation (VS-PWM) controller and SenseFET specifically designed for offline switch-mode power supplies.
Seen as a whole, SIMOTION in Version 4.2 is packed with many new features, which support the programmer so that he can create error-free, stable motion control applications in an even more user-friendly fashion, faster and more efficiently.
This is the Superbus; a very futuristic form of public transport (a bus). It has a topspeed of over 300 km/h! Via http://www.autojunk.nl/2011/04/presentatie-van-wubbos-superbus
When people communicate, the way they move has as much to do with what they're saying as the words that come out of their mouths. But what about when robots communicate with people? How can robots use non-verbal communication to interact more naturally with humans? Researchers at the...
Unlike many conventional chemical detectors that require an external power source, researchers have developed a nanosensor that relies on semiconductor nanowires, rather than traditional batteries. Source: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab Read More:...
With the departure of director Julie Taymor and the seemingly endless stream of injuries and woes for the new "Spiderman" Broadway show, who better than George Takei to save the day?
Get your movement balanced by maxon motor control. Inverted pendulums are instable systems - maxon high dynamic and precise motion controller allow to stabilize them.
This is a funny short video that depicts that awkward moment when you learn that not everyone has seen Star Wars...
One of the more obscure controls on an oscilloscope is the Trigger Holdoff control. A dedicated control on most high end analog oscilloscopes, and a main menu option in modern digital scopes, yet often poorly understood.
This video from Digi-Key and Cree introduces Cree's new series of LED modules and explains the advantages of integrating the LMR4 module into LED luminaire designs as well as the unique benefits of Cree's TrueWhite Technology.
Rooster Teeth Shorts has made one of the funniest videos I've seen in a while. "Angry Birds" is a phenomenon in the handheld space, and may yet spawn a "real" movie. It wouldn't be the first film based on a video game.
This is a demonstration of Maxim/Teridian's new family of power-management ICs that perform metering functions for smart-grid applications at their booth during APEC.
At CES 2011, Technical Editor Jason Lomberg had the chance to try out Waterloo Labs' eyes-only video gaming tech ("electro-oculography").
