The ESP8266 is a low-cost WiFi module that can be programmed directly like a microcontroller. Already thinking of your next Internet of Things project? While an available Arduino library allows a quick start, there is still one problem to overcome: How to access your ESP8266 from outside your home network without nerve-racking router and firewall…
A research effort led by Dmitri Talapin, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago, has demonstrated how semiconductors could be soldered – and even 3D printed -- and still deliver the proper electronic performance.
Two electronic systems that BMW Motorrad is developing for its motorcycles offer a glimpse of the near future. Presented in prototype form at CES 2016, a head-up display with ample connectivity features and a laser-powered lighting system are destined to make motorcycles safer and more functional.
As might be expected, there are a lot of drones on display this week at CES. Almost all of them have one thing in common, however: people can't ride in them. We say "almost all," as there is one exception. Ehang's 184 AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicle) is designed to carry a single human passenger.
For the first time, Australian engineers have demonstrated that they can write and manipulate the quantum version of computer code on a silicon microchip. This was done by entangling two quantum bits with the highest accuracy ever recorded , and it...
I designed this project for a 10-hour workshop for ChickTech.org whose goal is to introduce teenage women to STEM topics. The goals for this project were: Easy to build. Easy to program. Did something interesting. Low-cost so participants could take it home and continue to learn.With those goals in mind, here were a couple of the design choices: Arduino compatible for ease of programming. 4xAA battery power for cost and availability. Stepper motors for accurate motion. 3D Printed for ease of cus
Shape memory materials have shown promise in a number of applications. Now one team of scientists is examining potential biomedical applications, with polymer that can revert to its original form when triggered by heat from a human body.
According to IEET readers, what were the most stimulating stories of 2015? This month we’re answering that question by posting a countdown of the top 30 articles published this year on our blog (out of more than 1,000), based on how many total hits each one received.The following piece was first published here on September 29, 2015, and is the #1 most viewed of the year.
Working with a new magnetic insulator material with unusual atomic properties, scientists at Stanford University have observed electrical conduction in a non-conductive material that may lead to superior magnetic memory devices.
