Gemalto joined forces to offer global M2M application enablement services with the Cinterion solution. The cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) platform transforms real-time data from equipment and device sensors into actionable intelligence that improves operational efficiency and optimizes costs for better business outcomes.
In some ways, granular material — such as a pile of sand — can behave much like a crystal, with its close-packed grains mimicking the precise, orderly arrangement of crystalline atoms. Now researchers at MIT have pushed that similarity to a new limit, creating two-dimensional arrays of micrograins that can funnel acoustic waves, much as specially designed crystals can control the passage of light or other waves.
This week on Engineering Newswire, we're embedding sensors in your teeth to help track unhealthy acts; using the patch to help quit mosquitoes; designing temporary tattoo bio-sensors to warn extreme athletes when they are about to 'bonk'; and building the world's largest functioning brain ... model.
In this week’s episode of WDD’s HotSpot, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, Leap Motion has launched their 3D motion control software; a brain for your barbecue; a way of charging mobile phones using urine as the power source to generate electricity; and internal tags called InfraStructs.
On this week’s episode of the HotSpot, brought to you by OKW Enclosures, Lilliputian Systems has created a portable power device that will power all of your CE devices; Brazilian startup Kinetics has created a new communication technology called NearBytes; InfoMotion Sports has developed the 94Fifty sensor basketball; and Seal Innovation has created the SEAL wearable swim monitor and drowning detection system.
Korean Researchers from UNIST developed a new method to massively synthesize enhanced yet affordable materials for supercapacitors. Supercapacitors have attracted increasing attention due to their long life cycle, highly reversible charge storage process and specific power density along with increased concern over the exhaustion of natural resources.
Researchers of MESA+ are the first to successfully create perfect one-dimensional molecular wires of which the electrical conductivity can almost entirely be suppressed by a weak magnetic field at room temperature.
