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").
This video is an excellent example of what can be done in a public space with Augmented Reality and only hints at future applications.
In this video we see a booth demonstration of Transphorm's new GaN Power Electronics at APEC 2010.
This video shows Deepak Savadatti of International Rectifier giving a demonstration (with heat imaging) of the high-power performance of the new PowIRstage power management ICs at their booth at the APEC Power industry event.
This video shows a booth demonstration of TI's new SWIFT family of synchronous, step-down DC/DC converters for point-of-load applications.
The latest video from Ericsson Power Modules shows how power systems designers can achieve substantial efficiency gains using dynamic intermediate bus optimisation with advanced digital power modules.
