What caught my eyes is "up to 10 billion super cooled rare-earth ions".
Mining of rare-earth metals seems to be inevitable for the next generation technological advancement. As most people have heard, mining of rare-earth metals causes an exceptional pollution. Any short term solution to the issue? Where else can we dig out more rare-earth metal?
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.
