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
Edith Clarke had a lot of "firsts" for women in engineering. She was the first woman to receive a degree in Electrical Engineering from MIT, the first woman to present a paper to the American Institute of...
Students 2 Science is an organization designed to help students experience what conducting an experiment in a real lab is like with an eventual goal of Inspiring, Motivating, and Educating Students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics....
Meet Annalysha Lafferty, a student at University of California, Irvine working towards a B.S. in Earth System Science with the specializations of Hydrology and Terrestrial Ecosystems and Oceanography.
In this edition of destroying expensive things, Ukrainian YouTube star TechRax, who has been "smashing technology since 2011", takes on the iPhone 6. By takes on, I mean he drips molten aluminum onto a very expensive piece of technology. I'll admit, as an Apple fan, it's a little soul crushing.
The drone delivery service that everyone has been dreaming of (or dreading) is finally here. Well, sort of. Though Amazon was the American front runner in the drone delivary world, it's Alibaba via their online marketplace Taobao that has taken the steps to becoming the world's first drone delivery service.
Meet Lauren Prox, a senior at Denbigh High School - Aviation Academy. She hasn't quite decided what the rest of her life will look like, but she's narrowed it down to Aerospace, Optical, or Electrical Engineering. We think she has some good options.
While we struggle with domestic drone regulations, China’s e-commerce giant, Alibaba, is moving forward with a similar service as Amazon’s vaunted drone delivery system. Ya know, the difference being that Alibaba isn’t mired in seemingly endless red tape and regulatory hurdles....
The Autobahn, arguably one of the the most famous roads in the world, is about to welcome a new technology to its 8,216 miles and it's very exciting. For the first time, this highway will be home to not just crazy drivers going whatever speed they want, but it will also welcome ...
When talking about driverless vehicles, handwringing and fits that would be better received in a "the sky is falling" version of Chicken Little have become pretty commonplace. Despite the fact that cars not driven by human beings would be much safer than those operated by machines...
There is a constant discussion in STEM about what we should do about the gender gap. The conversation ranges from, 'Should we be doing anything?' to 'What types of toys will teach my children the skills they'll need to succeed as an engineer?'
