  • Tiny mechanical wrist gives new dexterity to needlescopic surgery

    23 Jul 2015 | 3:13 pm
    A mechanical wrist less than 1/16th of an inch thick -- small enough to use in needlescopic surgery, the least invasive form of minimally invasive surgery -- has been created by scientists. Needlescopic surgery, which uses surgical instruments shrunk to the diameter of a sewing needle, is the ultimate form of minimally invasive surgery. The needle-sized incisions it requires are so small that they can be sealed with surgical tape and usually heal without leaving a scar.
  • Researchers boost wireless power transfer with magnetic field enhancement

    23 Jul 2015 | 6:19 am
    Passing wireless power transfer through a magnetic resonance field enhancer (MRFE) -- which can be as simple as a copper loop -- can boost the transfer efficiency by at least 100 percent as compared to transferring through air alone. MRFE use could potentially boost transfer efficiency by as much as 5,000 percent in some systems, experts say.

    In last week’s issue of C&EN, I had  a story that looked  back at the Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon oil spills, with an eye toward lessons learned for addressing future spills. I focused on the environmental clean-up, not on the process safety problems that led to the incidents, but there was one talk from the University of New Hampshire Oil Spill Response Forum held last fall that I wanted to flag here. The speaker was Charlie Williams, who retired from Shell as chief scientist for well engineering and production and now leads the Center for Offshore Safety. Consider these…

  • Will a new overtime threshold affect postdocs for the worse?

    Jyllian Kemsley
    15 Jul 2015 | 4:30 am
    From a discussion about whether the Department of Labor’s proposed expansion of overtime eligibility will raise postdoc pay, a rather worrying comment: At many Uni’s, postdocs are classified in some nebulous category somewhere between grad student and indentured servant. My university (top 5 in total NIH funding) does not pay payroll taxes or withhold federal taxes, thus furthering their claim that we are not employees, but, rather, are “trainees”. With that being said, methinks many universities are going towards some form of “non-employee” for postdocs as…

    Act One—2010-2011As automakers begin to build in more wireless technology to enable not only hands-free mobile phone use from their cars but streaming audio services and navigational and safety aids as well, some researchers at UC San Diego and the University of Washington look into the possibility that these new two-way communication paths can be used to hack into a car's computer for nefarious purposes.  After months of work, they manage to use a wireless connection to disable the brakes on a particular car, which to this day remains anonymous.  Rather than releasing the maker's…
  • I Compute Your Pain: Emotion-Sensing Software

    20 Jul 2015 | 4:08 am
    My wife usually knows when I'm upset long before I do.  I haven't performed a scientific study to determine how she does this.  She says she reads my body language, the tone of my voice, and my facial expressions, as well as what I say.  Women seem to have a built-in advantage when it comes to sensing the emotional states of others, so it's not a surprise that the co-founders of a company that sells software to read emotions were two women:  Rosalind Picard and Rana el Kaliouby.  The history of why they began their research into getting computers to sense emotions and…

  • Inside Out For Real: Brain Mapping and Privacy

  • Residential Solar Energy: Power to How Many People?

    Nook Industries, a leading innovator of linear motion components and systems, has introduced an engineering calculator for modular actuators—one of the only of its kind in existence. The calculator works by simply choosing the desired product, entering its load definitions and allowing the tool to calculate the bearing stress and load to determine the bearing life of the product. The results can be viewed on an easy-to-read, printable format. “Since they are typically buried within the actuator, it’s often impossible to know exactly where the bearings are located, so many engineers have…

    Yes, there are termites along the front range, including Denver.  It’s fairly rare, but EV does find wood structures damaged by these little bugs.  Typically, the termites are subterranean here, meaning their colony is safely below ground.  Most colonies are kept in check by our colder weather, but as many of you may know Denver is actually very comfortable during the winter with only a few days that remain below freezing. The picture above shows one of the termites we found.  Amazing these tiny things can cause so much damage. This is a structural wood header damaged by termites.

In a hunt for delicious recipes, I’ve stumbled across a couple of innovative food products I just have to share with you. Neither of these is available to buy at the moment, but it’s surely just a matter of time until they are.  The 3D Food Printer 3D printers have been gradually making their way into the mainstream over the last decade and are starting to have a big impact for…
  • Why NASA Is Getting More Women Into STEM

    Chris Walker
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:55 pm
    It’s a longstanding problem in the engineering industry: Women are underrepresented and we all suffer as a result. According to a report from 2011, women hold less than 25% of STEM jobs in the US. That percentage hasn’t increased in more than a decade, despite college-educated women increasing their share of the overall workforce. But NASA isn’t content with the status quo and are taking steps to readdress the balance. Half of the astronauts class are women (for the first time ever) and NASA are intent on getting more women involved at all levels of the organization. In…

    I’ve come to hate the word authentic. My animosity has grown through eight years of helping companies adopt social media/content marketing. I cringe whenever I hear it, because it’s frequently used with a qualifier such as: “We need to seem authentic…” “We need to be more authentic…” Just writing those two fragments increases my already heightened blood pressure.

  • It's The Little Things: Searching for the Home Automation “Killer App”

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:18 pm
    image source: istockphoto.com Our pursuit of modern home automation can be readily observed if one looks at the archives from the various World Fairs dating as far back as the 1930s. While tantalizing possibilities have captured our imaginations, in practice the mass adoption of home automation technologies has yet to really take-off. Costs and lack of a common, interconnected protocol are often attributed as the root cause for the failure of home automation to launch. Perhaps though, home automation just hasn’t found it’s “killer app” yet. What might be needed is one…

    image source: istockphoto.com Much has been written about the trials and tribulations associated with the adoption of home automation technologies. The lack of mass consumer appeal is often attributed to high costs and lack of a simple, universal protocol. For the technically savvy, the idea of giving in to “vendor lock” by adopting a single company's product line has been too much to bear. However, for more affluent consumers this idea is not a problem as most of the time they rely on 3rd party installers to install and maintain their systems. This has left the DIY crowd to…
  • Watch the Feedback: An Introduction to Operational Amplifiers

Powerwall is a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack that will store energy for when you need it, or to use as a backup power supply during an outage. Unlike a generator, it doesn’t require fuel and creates no noise. What’s interesting is that the backlog of customer orders is already winding itself well into the second half of 2016. This is a sign that demonstrates there is a market demand for rethinking how we power our…

    Shock absorbing casters offer many benefits, including Protecting cargo from damage Reducing noise due to vibration Easier to roll than conventional casters when the flooring is cracked, uneven or encountering obstructions like thresholds Reduces risk of damage to flooring However, not all shock absorbing casters actually create a benefit. Shock absorbing casters are usually spring loaded, and those springs deflect when pressure is applied to them. If the caster uses the wrong springs, it could potentially do more harm than good. If the springs are too firm, they could actually cause more…

    The elimination of forklifts has been an increasing trend in manufacturing plants. While it may seem hard to imagine a plant operating without forklifts, many plants have implemented this policy and are very pleased with the outcome. One of the leading drivers for this trend is safety, every year approximately 100 workers are killed and about 20,000 more are seriously injured due to forklifts. Another driver is cost reduction, an old industry adage applies the “80/20 rule” to the cost of forklift use. Over the life of a forklift, 20% of the total cost is ownership, the remaining 80%…

  • Why Birds don't get Shock on Touching Power Lines?

    10 Jul 2015 | 4:56 am
    You may be amazed on why the birds don't get shocked when they sit on high voltage overhead power line. The possible reasons are discussed in this article. A shock is caused by a flow of current through a body. So for the bird to be shocked there would need to be a current running through her body. Current will only flow through a closed path. There is no current running through the bird's body for two reasons. The first reason is that the bird's body has a high resistance, so the current would rather pass through the wire instead of the bird. Electricity flows along the…

    In simulation, there is ongoing effort to prove who can claim to be the best at “virtual tryout.” Product brochures and websites promote software solutions that “bypass soft tooling” and “minimize die tryout.” While these are certainly desirable goals, perhaps they do not go far enough. Soft tooling has been driven to near extinction by […]
  • Springback Compensation, when not to try

    In previous posts, we discussed the industry challenge of springback. Everybody wants a springback “silver bullet” or easy solution for Springback Compensation—alternative geometry in the tooling, which allows the stamped part to have the desired shape after elastic deformation recovery. The most common method of springback compensation is the overbend/overcrown method. If you observe a […]
