Between a helmet cam and an AirDog, it looks like sports enthusiasts can buy their own little shooting crew.  I like automotive sports.  Can AirDog do 100mph?

Intel creates hacker playground

June 19, 2014 Leave a comment

Programmable logic in Intel chipsets sounds like a lot of fun to me.  It’s a powerful tool for very savvy end users and unfortunately, hackers.  I know I’d love an FPGA with tight integration to system memory on my next computer – for good purposes of course.

I still enjoy my DLP Bigscreen, but what other cool things can we do with DLP now that the technology isn’t as mainstream in TVs?  Check out http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1322765&_mc=NL_EET_EDT_EET_daily_20140617&cid=NL_EET_EDT_EET_daily_20140617&elq=e89e72eff8d2432380b43b3bee390acd&elqCampaignId=17597

Multifunction 3D Machines

September 13, 2013 Leave a comment

There’s been a proliferation of Multifunction 3D Manufacturing machines lately.  These products look really neat on the surface, but does the Jack of all trades, master of none principal apply?  See the Microfactory and the Zeus.

3D printing does require a lot of tinkering to get right.  The self-leveling feature of the Zeus would obviate a good portion of user care in theory.  So long as the extra features don’t make these machines harder to setup and use, they could be a larger step forward in the 3D Printing landscape than we’ve seen in a little while.
