    Building as a modular gadget

    Researchers and companies have been exploring new ways to improve buildings through analytics software, prefabrication, connected devices, new materials and construction automation.

    NASA releases new video showing the globe age one year

    Last year around this time, NASA released the first image of Earth taken by the EPIC camera on the DSCOVR satellite.

    The assimilation of robots into the workforce as peers, not replacements

    One might ask why we would ever want to create robots that can do human work when we have so many people who need jobs.

    The government should be measured in its reaction to the Tesla crash 

    While I acknowledge and appreciate the role of governmental agencies to protect its citizens from harm, I encourage the NHTSA to be rational and measured in their response. Today, the United States has a significant lead in the autonomous vehicle and self-driving car industry.

  • Bad UX kills Crunch Network

    Bad UX kills

    It clogs systems, causes accidents, wastes energy and makes people unhappy. It’s more than a bad experience on a website — in cities, bad user experience (UX) design can actually kill. We’re talking about signage, public spaces, civic and emergency communications and other forms of urban design that influence our daily routines and, in some cases, are there expressly for… Read More

    Running at 150,000 RPM, this tiny motor could help satellites keep on course

    The future is small in space: picture Cubesats the size of toasters and Femtosats an inch across crowding the skies. A newly invented motor that’s both tiny and powerful goes hand in hand with that vision, providing compact spacecraft with the ability to adjust their position without using a drop of fuel.

    Waiting for the right professional network

    Today there is enough data available to bring people of similar or adjacent profiles closer, and inform them about signals and contexts where they could either help, pay it forward or seek help.
