Tech Toys 360: Looxcie Personal Video Camera

Sometimes cool, funky gizmos don’t cohabitate with usefulness, but this wearable video camera, called the Looxcie (pronounced “Look, See”), is different. It’s different from wearing those helmet cams and camera sunglasses and infinitely better than gorilla-taping an iPhone to your head.

Specialized Smoothes Out the Bumps with 3D CAD

When Specialized Bicycles premiered its Enduro model with 29-inch wheels earlier this year, it rocked the bike world.

PTC Tightens Up Product Development at MEI

Deep within the grease and grit that keeps your auto brakes working, there’s a slack adjuster. I know some of you are vehicle design pros, and you already know what that means. But for those of you who just head to the repair shop when the squeal in your brakes gets annoying, I’ll explain it […]

When Physical Prototypes Aren’t an Option

I can think of a lot of items that you might build, test, scrap, build again, test again,  scrap again, and so on until you have exactly the product you want. Luxury yachts are not one of them. They’re too expensive for any meaningful physical mock up. You need to know before you start sanding […]
