Picture this. It's several (decades/centuries) in the future. All food is organically harvested in BioDomes, no one has driven a car in 20 years and Robot Madonna is still cranking out the tunes.
The 1960s was arguably the most fascinating time in the world of space. Sputnik had been...
Meet Brian Scharles Jr, Computer Engineer Intern at Traffic and Parking Control Co., and...
Now here’s a weapon I can almost guarantee that you’ve seen more at the local multiplex than in someone’s backyard. Its creators describe the XM42 as the “world’s first fully handheld, grab and go portable flamethrower on the market.”
Though the Step In Time dance from Mary Poppins is not longer an accurate depiction of the world above us, roof tops still play an interesting role in society.
Watching the FAA try and figure out how to regulate drones is sort of like watching a newborn foal figure out how to walk.
Meet Mary Scherer, Ohio State sophomore in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineers for Community Service (ECOS) Project Team Leader, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Secretary
We’ve all heard of regenerative-braking, where kinetic energy from brakes is captured and returned to the vehicle’s batteries. Most of the popular hybrid and pure electric vehicles like the Prius, Tesla Roadster, and Chevy Volt use some form of regenerative breaking....
Most readers of a certain age group--before the game was banned because someone knew someone who had their eye ripped out by a ball--will recall with a mixture of fear and excitement the experiences of playing dodge ball in gym class.
News outlets everywhere have been drooling over the idea of the Mars One mission, despite a few massive holes--financial and technological--in the plan, but it's always interesting to read how die-hard space fans feel about it.
The CV-22 Osprey is arguably one of the coolest aircraft around.
Meet Ishmeet Grewal, a Junior Computer Science and Engineering Student at The Ohio State University.
Solar and wind often dominate the alternative energy conversation, but a rarely discussed, though increasingly popular, third option exists in gathering energy from the tides. Among its many attributes, tidal power or marine and hydrokinetic power (MKP) is cyclical....
When the FAA ruled that drones had to be kept in line sight of the pilots, it put a definite damper on the UAV jubilee, but it wasn’t long before people started coming up with creative ideas to get around the draconian law. These ideas included things like a potential loophoop in onboard real time cameras ...
There are many videos of fighter jets on the internet (and quite a number here on ECN) but this is the first one we've seen with this particular angle. This is a MiG-29 launching off of an aircraft carrier as recorded by a camera placed between the twin engines.
To answer the question, I definitely would not drop $17,000 on a watch, but I would definitely spend $350 on an Apple Watch.
This is one of those videos you could probably go ahead and file somewhere between, "This is the reason we can't have nice things" and "This is really cool."
Meet Jillian Yuricich a student at The Ohio State University studying Aerospace Engineering and minoring in International Studies, Security and Intelligence.
To date, we’ve seen 3D-printed drones, 3D-printed model airplanes, and while major airlines like Airbus are exploring the idea of futuristic, 3D-printed passenger jets, we haven’t seen rapid prototyping applied on so large a scale — until now.
Sometimes you have to buckle down and do the dirty work and other times you get to assemble toys at work.
When you think of engineering role models, you might think of a parent, teacher, sibling, a celebrity, or even just someone who comes in to speak at career day. But, there is another very important place that kids often look for role models and it's in every home in various forms.
As we've moved through Engineers week, we need to take a minute to celebrate kids who are, mostly without the formal training, creating incredible things and making large steps in the medical, consumer, and engineering fields.
Meet Divya Baji, a final year PhD student at the Centre for Doctoral Training, Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, University of Leeds working on a project to develop a novel methodology to test the performance of bone and cartilage substitutions in a natural knee joint using a knee simulator.
Most wearable exoskeletons are heavy duty contraptions with ravenous power requirements. Lockheed Martin’s Human Universal Load Carrier, or HULC, was a battery, hydraulic-powered load carriage platform designed to carry up to 200 pounds....
Part of the ongoing discussion on STEM is deciphering the perfect formula for introducing kids to engineering or science and keeping them interested enough to consider it for a career.
When you think college campus, you might think classes, parties, and dorms, but for some students at the University of Illinois at Chicago the college experience is all about the robots. Well, maybe not ALL about the robots, but there is a serious devotion to robotics among the members of the Chicago Engineering Design Team.
Has it always been a dream of yours to die alone on Mars? Perhaps you enjoy working 20-hour days and then returning to the living quarters you will share with the same 24 people for the rest of your life?
Have you ever wondered what happens after the Hubble? The Hubble Space Telescope has a successor, and it's called the James Webb Space Telescope
