UK’s Thinkable Builds Award-Winning Google Glass on Steroids

Motorola makes a hands-free computer headset, the HC1. Equipped with a camera over the right ear and a micro display screen on the left, the device uses Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technology so you can bring the whole Internet right up to your face. It can interpret voice commands, and with a built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, and […]

cadalyst: Robot Designers Take Cues from Nature

“In the world of biomimetics, scientists and engineers model their creations after living creatures. Biomimetic robots are as diverse as their biological inspirations, which include everything from insects to fish. Boston Engineering’s BIOSwimmer unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), for example, is a robotic tuna. Like Chung’s robotic falcon, the BIOSwimmer was designed to mimic the locomotion […]

Getting to Yes: Justifying the Cost of Your Package Upgrade

Buying a package upgrade for your existing PTC Creo software seat can boost your productivity, improve the team’s design productivity, and save money. We’ve talked several times on this blog about that recently. Nonetheless, business teams outside of design and engineering may need some more convincing. Management, finance, and procurement often prefer less upfront investment, with software extensions […]

Designing Locomotives for Global Markets with PTC Solutions

Last spring South African cargo company Transnet ordered 232 new diesel locomotives for its massive freight-carrying operation from CNR Dalian Locomotive. The new trains would need to be specially designed and equipped with enough muscle to haul freight, but at dimensions suitable for operation alongside South Africa’s existing electronic locomotives. Only a few weeks before, […]

Aberdeen Research: How to Get More from Virtual Prototypes

Simulate early. Simulate often. That’s the message from Aberdeen Research in its report, “Unlocking Product Innovation with Virtual Prototypes.” The document sums up the experiences of more than 1000 product development professionals. Then, it looks at how the best performing product designers–the Best-in-Class–compare to their more average-performing counterparts. “In the real world, a variety of […]

Aberdeen Research: Unlocking the Value of Virtual Prototypes

The top-performing product design companies simulate early and often, according to a report from analyst firm Aberdeen Research. Doing so helps them cut the costs associated with physical prototyping, and it also helps them deal with increasingly complex product designs. The report, “Unlocking Product Innovation with Virtual Prototypes,” sums up the experiences of more than […]

Tooling with PTC Creo: Szimikron Precision Technologies

The ball screw is an old invention that finds new applications with every generation. Engineers specify these deceptively simple mechanical devices anywhere they need efficient linear movement from rotational motion. You’ll find them in CNC machines, anti-lock brake systems, airplanes, and even robots. Compared to other methods for moving loads in a straight line, like […]

Aberdeen Research: Capture Knowledge to Ensure Simulation Success

As companies struggle to competitively differentiate their products as well as beat their competitors to market, faster decisions within engineering have become increasingly critical to product success. Many have turned to simulation tools for support. However, the expertise required to conduct accurate simulations, combined with increasing product complexity, leaves companies struggling to expand simulation knowledge […]

Students Building the World’s First Heavy Lift Quadcopter

Last year, Nick Conover and three other students at San Jose State University pitched an idea on Kickstarter. The Incredible HLQ (pronounced Hulk) would be an autonomous gasoline-powered 4-rotor helicopter that could carry an unprecedented payload of 50 pounds. Here’s their original pitch: [Ed- their project is now fully funded] A drone engineered to run […]
