One of the biggest stressors of putting together a protoype (in my eyes) is finding all the parts you need, getting the datasheets, etc, etc, and building that first draft of the BOM. If it's at least easy to find the parts you're looking for, with information on multiple distributors, it makes the job a bit easier.
To that end, I want to share a new tool I have caught wind of, as part of my work at…Continue

My friend sent this to me since he knows we're in the business of renewables. I can't help but feel sorry for the towers. Why did they have to make them look like the Kool-Aid man…Continue

It’s fascinating to see old cell phones in movies from the 80s and 90s. I’m amazed not just at the obnoxious sizes of the devices, but also at the lack of elegance in the designs. That’s not to berate the designers who crafted the phones, but it shows how much the art of design has come to the forefront in engineering today. Steve Jobs famously employed design to move technology forward. With his passing, many of us are asking, “Who is going to lead that charge now?”
In July, 1985, while working at Morton Thiokol, he wrote a memo to his bosses concerning the faulty design of the Space Shuttle's solid rocket boosters that, if left…Continue
Computational Fluid Dynamics is serious stuff. Do it wrong, and you can lose the race.
That's what the Marussia F1 team (the ex-Virgin team) learned over the last couple of racing seasons. Autosport.com reports that the team relied solely on CFD for its first two designs—and found…Continue
