3D printing has been in the market for a long time, but the Harvard group has made it possible to transfer images into a 3D print in real space. I hope that this technology will become commercially available soon.
@Colin, this is amazing technology. I would love to print "Angry Birds" using this technology. By when do you think this technology will become commercial ? Can we access this technology only through cloud based provider ?
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.
