IBM scientists create the world's smallest magnetic memory bit using only 12 atoms. First-ever demonstration of engineered atomic-scale structures storing information magnetically at low temperatures. New experimental atomic-scale magnet memory is at least 100 times denser than today's hard disk drives and solid state memory chips.
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship "Enterprise". Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. Do these words sound familiar? Well, today man has gone where no man has gone before. On the star ship Enterprise, there is a device known as a "replicator." The concept was to have a 23rd century technology that could replicate anything by reconstituting raw material into the object desired.
GstarCAD2012 with its powerful functions and good performance as well as cost saving has received high praise from customers.
Robotics experts at the University of California, Santa Cruz and the University of Washington (UW) have completed a set of seven advanced robotic surgery systems for use by major medical research laboratories throughout the United States. After a round of final tests, five of the systems will be shipped to medical robotics researchers at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Nebraska, UC Berkeley, and UCLA, while the other two systems will remain at UC Santa Cruz and UW.
ADLINK Technology released EOS-1200 embedded vision system. It uses the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 quad core processor, providing four independent gigabit PoE (power over Ethernet) ports with data transfer rates up to 4.0 Gb/s.
Brooklyn will be the borough of robots this Saturday, January 14, as more than 400 elementary and middle school students and their teachers gather at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) for the fast and furious qualifying round of the annual FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®).
ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, announced a new issuance of CHF350 million 1.50% Notes due in 2018.

Earlier this week Microsoft announced that they would officially be bringing their Kinect hardware to the Windows platform. The hardware is the mostly the same but new firmware allows the depth camera to see objects as close as 50cm away without losing accuracy or precision. Microsoft also says Kinect for Windows is 20% faster than it was in the last release and the accuracy rate of skeletal tracking and joint recognition have been substantially improved. Microsoft has allowed the beta SDK to be used with Xbox Kinect and will continue to allow existing projects access to the SDK but they also state that all future projects will need to purchase the Kinect For Windows hardware in order to have access to upcoming SDK releases. Kinect For Windows and the SDK will cost $249 ($149 for an academic license).
World's First Dual-Core Gyroscope from STMicroelectronics Handles Smart User Interface and Image Stabilization in Phones and Tablets
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and the leading supplier of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) for consumer and portable applications 1, has introduced the market's first dual-core gyroscope capable of handling both user-motion recognition and camera image stabilization.
ABB Extends IRC5 Panel Mounted Controller to Larger Robots, Providing Small Footprint Functionality and Easier Integration
PMC variant of IRC5 Panel Mount Robotic Controller can be integrated into large robots. It consists of large drive module and standard IRC5 control module that can be separately mounted in variety of configurations, which gives machine builders flexibility to create custom enclosures to best protect electronics for specific harsh environments. Up to 4 drive modules may be connected to same control module for multiple robot control (MultiMove) or control of additional axes.

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
