Looking at things upside down Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 4/30/2007 Post a comment If you don a pair of special glasses that make everything appear to be upside down, after a few days your brain will learn how to compensate.
Victorian fax machines? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 4/28/2007 Post a comment Images were being captured, transmitted, and reproduced by electromechanical means in 1842, only five years after Queen Victoria had ascended to the throne!
Looking at the world in a whole new way Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 4/18/2007 Post a comment We're used to seeing maps of the world presented in terms of area, but this site shows them scaled in terms of population, wealth, fast-food, and many other criteria.
Girls using computers? Programmable Logic DesignLine Blog 4/17/2007 Post a comment Here's a new collection of rather funny images from around the web (including "Geek Toilet", "Hello Dear", "Useless Cat", and "Girls' Computer")!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
