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)
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!
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!
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
