Nanotechnology is set to drive a revolution in "intelligent avionics"

Nanotechnology is set to drive a revolution in "intelligent avionics" | leapmind | Scoop.it

Nanotechnology is set to drive a revolution in "intelligent avionics" that will help cut aircraft fuel burn and improve safety.

A technology forecast by PricewaterhouseCoopers envisages wireless sensors becoming so small that aerospace engineers of the 2020s will be able to embed layers of them in or on components or structures.

So-called "smart dust" promises to revolutionise avionics, by communicating wirelessly from any part of an aircraft to back up avionics systems. PwC emerging technologies director Dr David Jacobson said: "The layered back-up will reduce the chances of sensor or software failures leading to a shutdown of flight-critical function, without adding weight."

Smart Thinking

Smart Thinking | leapmind | Scoop.it

As a designer, I’m really excited by this shift in how we relate to the everyday objects around us. Cisco predicts that there will be 50 billion things connected to the Internet by 2020. Imagine all the consumer electronics, toys, appliances and medical devices that will be connected to the Internet in the next decade. And it’s not only electronics, but also plain old things like coffee cups and lamps that will be sharing data with themselves, the Cloud and more importantly, with people.

The web is over, it was a cute lab experiment, the sort of toy that Nature watches her children play with and laughs. Six billion mobile devices. Eight? Ten? Cute as a button. What will happen when we climb the next mountain? When instead of information being "in" computers; people, products, environments, and cultures begin to live "in" the information?

Extreme Lifestyle Experiments

Extreme Lifestyle Experiments | leapmind | Scoop.it

Colin Wright is a 25-year-old serial entrepreneur, minimalist, and blogger who moves to a new country every 4 months based on the votes of his readers. While travelling, Colin starts up new business endeavours, manages his existing projects, and engages in extreme lifestyle experiments—from not wearing black for half a year to going completely paperless—in order to gain new perspective and to inspire others to make positive changes to their lives that might otherwise seem impossible. Colin writes about entrepreneurship, minimalism, and long-term travel at ExileLifestyle.com. “I wish that the knowledge that humanity has amassed could be evenly and universally available to everyone on the planet, allowing more people to have access to the resources that will allow them to contribute to the global conversation, take care of themselves (and others), and pursue further innovation.”
