The 30 Coolest Gadgets Of 2016

The 30 Coolest Gadgets Of 2016 | Broadcast Engineering Notes | Scoop.it
With each year that goes by, gadgets and technology seem to get cooler and cooler. Heart rate monitors have transformed into all-purpose fitness and activity trackers, drones are getting more instinctive by the day, and refrigerators can now actually do the job of making your grocery list for you. It's a strange and wonderful world we live in, and the International CES 2016 Gadget Showcase proves that it's about to get even better. These 30 gadgets will hopefully be accessible on the market as soon as possible -- #27 is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. (H/T: The Telegraph)

Thanks to reporter David Hall for this peak at some of the awesome devices featured at the recent CES 2016 Gadget Showcase. These remarkable creations range between passenger drones and self-driving vehicles to paper thin OLED digital displays that can be rolled up and a 3D scanning app that draws 3D pictures of a room in 3 minutes.  Fascinating!

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 27, 2015 11:14 PM

Thanks to reporter David Hall for this insight on the challenging and often frustrating life of a broadcast engineer. Before I retired from the commercial broadcast business several  years ago, I was assigned to help the station's contract engineer maintain our chain of 6 AM/FM stations on Hawaii Island.  This assignment was in addition to my regular duties as the news and public affairs director.  I spent many weekends and nights keeping keeping our stations on the air and helping the contract engineer complete several major projects, including studio rebuilds, installation of equipment, and repairing transmitters and remote equipment.  This was no 9 to 5 job.  I learned a lot of interesting and fascinating things from transmitter design to FCC regulations.  Of course, being a FCC-licensed amateur radio operator (Extra Class--KH6JRM) surely helped.  I found my extra duties very enlightening and educational.  Broadcast engineers are underpaid for the work they do. As the late Paul Harvey once remarked: "Now you know the rest of the story."  Excellent article. Aloha, Russ.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 21, 5:13 PM
Thanks to reporter David Hall for this look at what people complain about when they contact the FCC.  No surprise here--interference and noise are the biggest issues facing both consumers and FCC regulators.  RFI is so bad in some urban areas, that AM and FM broadcasts are severely degraded.  The main culprit is the rapid expansion of non-FCC compliant digital devices, poorly shielded power supplies, and sloppy technical installations in homes and businesses.  Noise is a massive headache that will impact the future of all wireless communication, from the internet to commercial broadcasting.
