1. That is AWESOME! This provides a whole other dimension to finding the rightful owner of the glass slipper. 2. I think there should be a whole series of engineering fairy tales! 3. You should start with the 3 little pigs (how much force it takes to knock down the various houses or something)

Cool, let's move to Rapunzel's hair, that's a baffling one.

@EI...that's already been covered to some extent here: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-blogs/eda-designline-blog/4396831/What-were-they-thinking--do-you-know-your-Rapunzel-Number-

How about "The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs" (gotta love that Aesop). A little biology mixed with heavy duty alchemy? To boot, isn't this story what Silicon Valley is all about - ok maybe I'm being a little cynical. Love the 3 little pigs idea - sounds like great fodder for MythBusters!

Is some one is going to manufacture this item based on these information?

Agreed, the 3 little pigs idea would make a great MythBusters episode!

What about Jack and the beanstalk, what kind of genetic engineering and mechanical engineering is required to have a plant grow as long as to reach the sky? Not to metioned the speed and materials required to make it grow over night!

But no matter how tall it was, Rene, I bet Felix Baumgartner would have skydived off it :)

LoL, yea there is always some loony that seeks the adrenalin rush. But in a second thought, that would be a cool amusement park! ;-)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
