A group of students from Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering at San Jose State University has designed an innovative Spherical Drive System.The system is applicable to two wheelers. Made of carbon fiber/fiberglass with coating of tough industrial rubber for excellent traction and force distribution,the drive system is excellent for any terrain or weather.
Charles Lohr a 24 year old Computer Science student at UMBC. Who grew up in Howard County, Maryland. Gives us a tutorial on making PCB in glass.
As glass is reusable, and don't harm the environment in the making, this is something that should really be considered for future productions. It also adds extra properties with it.
With submillimeter-scale anatomy and two wafer-thin wings that flap at 120 times per second, robotic insects, or RoboBees, achieve vertical takeoff, hovering, and steering. The tiny robots flap their wings using piezoelectric actuators -- strips of ceramic that expand and contract when an electric field is applied. Thin hinges of plastic embedded within a carbon fiber body frame serve as joints.
Grover is the newest scientific rover from NASA. On it's way to Greenland for trial runs this month. A research station sitting on a two-mile thick sheet of ice. The Goddard Remotely Operated Vehicle for Exploration and Research, or GROVER, carries ground-penetrating radar capable of measuring snow accumulation over time.
Quantum computers promise to perform certain types of operations much more quickly than conventional digital computers. But many challenges must be addressed before these ultra-fast machines become available, among them, the loss of order in the systems -- a problem known as quantum decoherence -- which worsens as the number of bits in a quantum computer increases.
