The Arduino Esplora is a microcontroller board derived from the Arduino Leonardo. The Esplora differs from all preceding boards in that it provides a number of built-in, ready-to-use set of onboard sensors for interaction. The Esplora has onboard sound and light output interfaces. It alos has the potential to expand its capabilities with two Tinkerkit input and output connectors, and a socket for a color TFT LCD screen. Like the Leonardo board, the Esplora uses an Atmega32U4 AVR microcontroller with 16 MHz crystal oscillator and a micro USB connection capable of acting as a USB client device, like a mouse or a keyboard. The Esplora has the following on-board inputs and outputs : Analog joystick with central push-button two axis (X and Y) and a center pushbutton. 4 push-buttons laid out in a diamond pattern. Linear potentiometer slider near the bottom of the board. Microphone for getting the loudness (amplitude) of the surrounding environment. Light sensor for getting the brightness. Temperature sensor reads the ambient temperature Three-axis accelerometer measures the board's relation to gravity on three axes (X, Y, and Z) Buzzer can produce square-waves. RGB led bright LED with Red Green and Blue elements for color mixing. 2 TinkerKit Inputs to connect the TinkerKit sensor modules with the 3-pin connectors. 2 TinkerKit Outputs to connect the TinkerKit actuator modules with the 3-pin connectors. TFT display connector connector for an optional color LCD screen, SD card, or other devices that use the SPI protocol.
Worlds First Open Source Virtual Reality Cockpit Flight Simulator 360 degrees Rotation DIY Project on Indiegogo.com: Funding Campaign from Simworx Offering Kits and Plans
Simworx may be the first simulator company to offer a DIY version of their production level 360 degrees rotation flight simulator to the DIY community, as an Open Source project. Simworx introduces the funding campaign on indiegogo.com to develop the CAD drawings,Plans, engingeering study, jigs, and component intergration for both versions of VR Cockpit with full step by step instructions for Do-it-yourself plans or Kit building the 360 rotation full motion flight simulator.
SPIE Urges Congress, President to Avoid Fiscal Cliff and Support Science and Technology to Strengthen Economy
SPIE leaders have joined other science, engineering, and STEM education organizations in urging the President and Congress to develop a bipartisan solution to avoiding the fiscal cliff that supports crucial American investment in science and technology. Deep cuts in federal R&D investments would threaten national competitiveness, the organizations are saying in a letter to U.S. leaders.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
