    Radios, Remote Sensors, and Connectivity

    It’s hard to imagine a time before 1998, when Bluetooth® was first introduced, that we’d have to endure commutes to work on the train without the “luxury” of internet connection, or workouts with our favorite tunes blasting perpetual motivation through our cable-free earbuds. Remember when cafés advertised free WiFi? Now wireless connections are commonplace and expected amenities in public places. And, noting the difference between WiFi and Bluetooth, the latter—through our Bluetooth-enabled devices—keeps us connected to WiFi. Bluetooth has become a necessary bridge to the world wide web, making it the modern-day lifeline to the internet of things (IoT).

    Understanding the Process When Engineering New, User-Friendly Designs

    Staples has the “Easy” button, which ironically, does nothing. Though I guess you could say, it makes doing nothing pretty easy. And who doesn’t welcome solutions that come as easily and simply as pushing a button?

    The Mass Appeal of 3D-Printed Food Is No Joke!

    A scientist, farmer, and entrepreneur walk into a bar together and enjoy a 3D-printed pizza. And finish it up with nutritious, milled-mealworm shortbread cookies—also 3D printed. Wait, that’s not a joke! It may not sound all that appetizing, but in efforts to figure out how to feed the world’s ever-increasing population, dedicated stakeholders are working on sustainable measures to keep food on the table. As we know, necessity = invention.

    Advanced Engineering Collaboration with Clinical Medicine Transforms Rehabilitation

    We’re all navigating in an attention economy where speed is the currency and information gathering and retention are the Holy Grail. It drives how we do business and impacts our personal lives. And it’s never more personal than when gathering health data. I recently read about this remarkable advancement in medical device technology, inspired by nature’s protective mechanism—skin—to, in a sense, get under ours.

    Fighting the Opioid Crisis with Medical Device Technology

    An Inside Look: Controlling Abuse by Monitoring Use 

    Short-term pain management, sadly, can lead to long-term, devastating consequences if it isn’t monitored. The opioid crisis currently gripping the country bears witness to this. The journey to addiction can be a slow, quiet one—even with the best intentions to avoid it. But what if it could be monitored? Not by someone’s parents, or spouse, or friends, but by the opioid itself—at least, in part.

    Rethinking Creative Solutions for Medical Device Technology

    Posted by David Bonneau on 01/02/18

    The Hollywood version of operating rooms is full of beeping, blinking monitors and medical devices that look like something out of a (more recent) Star Trek movie. Futuristic, sleek, mind-bendingly fast, and informative—almost too much so. And while some virtual arrays and hologram “touch” screens seem beyond our current paradigm grasp, they either already exist in some form or are closer to large-scale reality than you think.

    Know What to Ask to Keep Your Project on Task

    In my last blog, I spoke about troubleshooting and brainstorming when in the discovery phase of engineering design. I talked about finding the fastest path to failure and how effective it is in quickly eliminating—and discovering—what may or may not work, saving time, money, and resources. I posed some basic questioning strategies to apply during this process.
