Below are the top stories reported in engineering this week from around the world. Check out our engineering news round up post every Friday to stay up to date.
Edison was born in Milan, Ohio and held over 1,000 patents by the time of his death in 1931, including his most famous inventions in electric light and power.
The recall involves Tribecas from the 2006-2014 model years. Most were sold in the U.S., but 5,661 were sold in Canada.
Virtual reality (VR) has been all the buzz lately, but today’s architects and designers shouldn’t underestimate the power of augmented reality (AR) in construction.
For diabetics, life is a constant struggle to maintain balance - keeping track of your carbohydrate intake, constantly monitoring blood-sugar levels, and injecting insulin. It's a never-ending cycle to stay healthy. But now major advances in engineering could end that cycle.
Melbourne medical researchers have developed a stent-based electrode (stentrode) that records neural activity which can be used to control an exoskeleton or bionic limbs. Currently, exoskeletons are controlled by manual manipulation of a joystick, but the new device, the researchers say, will be the first of its kind to enable direct thought control of these devices.
Eighteen Kettering University students left the 2016 Michigan Collegiate DECA Career Development Conference February 5-7 in Grand Rapids with 18 awards, including five first place awards.
