Stanley Song, Advanced Projects Engineer with Cannondale, describes a technology demo--a bike which uses Analog Devices accelerometers to detect bumps and hills, among other things.
Prasad Sristi with AMD describes the company's forthcoming Radeon HD 5670 graphics card.
A demonstration of the Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner from the show floor of CES 2010. The Mint uses "Northstar Guidance" to track where it cleans.
Dave tangles with Murphy's Law and Microchip silicon bugs with his latest project.
Swarms of bacteria turn two 380-micron long gears, opening the possibility of building hybrid biological machines at the microscopic scale.
New content for mobile devices, interactive Web-connected TV, new screen sizes for portables, and apps galore are likely to be main attractions at the 2010 CES.
In 1949, Jo Ann Lewis began losing her sight to retinis pigmentosa, a degenerative disease that destroys light-detecting cells in the eye. Today, microelectronic implants have allowed her to recapture a vestige of vision.
Here is a simple robot from your parts bin that avoids obstacles.
This product training module offers a succinct and informative presentation of Omron's MEMS flow sensor line-up, as well as their MEMS technology.
ECN Editor-in-Chief Alix Paultre explains how to use a regular cell-phone camera to detect an LED's infrared output.
This video runs through using the LabVIEW Robotics Starter Kit to develop a basic robotics prototype by integrating motors, encoders and a Paralax ultrasonic distance sensor with a NI Single-Board RIO embedded FPGA board.
This "SWAT BOT" is designed to minimize the exposure of Law Enforcement Personnel to potentially lethal encounters by taking them out of the line of Fire, and out of harm's way. Equipped with a Wireless Barrel-Cam and Pepper Balls, it is a Non-Lethal, Wireless UGV for Riot Control, Hostage Scenarios or other Hostile Situations.
Can solar power hope beat out the engineering reality for Dave's latest project? Was Doc Brown right?
The snowman was made from two tin beads used to calibrate electron microscope astigmatism. The eyes and smile were milled using a focused ion beam, and the nose, which is under 1 µm wide (or 0.001 mm), is ion beam deposited platinum.
