zero2infinity hopes to offer a slow and steady ascent aboard bloon, an intimate six-person pod attached to a zero-pressure polyethylene helium balloon. Gov. Jerry Brown rides to Google headquarters in a self-driving Toyota Prius before signing legislation that will pave the way for driverless cars in California.
The new iPhone 5 features a thinner, lighter design, with a taller screen, a faster processor, and updated software, everything you'd hope to expect from a new phone -- except a suitable map app. Rethink Robotics has unleashed a revolution in manufacturing with the friendly faced, factory robot: Baxter.
Product concept design tools have come a long way from hand sketches. Even proper drafting rules made a big difference, and so have computer design tools. Now designers are using social media to bring consumer interaction into the concept stage of product design.
At Design East, ECN Executive Editor Chris Warner chats with Wayne Freeman of Microchip Technology about the company’s new Enhanced Midrange 8-bit families comprising 15 scalable MCUs ranging from 14 to 100 pins with up to 128 KB of Flash. These MCUs are positioned to eliminate the need for an external crystal.
