In this week’s podcast, super tiny technology is taking center stage! First up, I check out world’s first and smallest sensor that can enable touch gestures through any material. Dan Goehl (Co-founder and Chief Business Officer at UltraSense Systems) joins me to discuss how UltraSense’s new 3D ultrasound sensor is going to usher in a whole new era in user interfaces. Also this week, I investigate … Read More → "Changing the UI and UX Paradigm Once Touch at a Time"
How do you know that the person with whom you are interacting is who he or she says they are? The reason I got to thinking about this came about through a rather strange route.
As you probably know, I’m originally from England but I currently hang my hat in Huntsville, Alabama. I moved here for the nightlife (that’ … Read More → "Contactless Hand Biometric for ID Security"
The concept of age is much on my mind at the moment. Well, yes, theoretically I will be turning 65 in a few months’ time, thank you so much for bringing this to everyone’s attention, but that’s not what I meant. On the other hand, since you’ve seen fit to open this can of … Read More → "Meet the World’s Smallest, Most Integrated 3D Ultrasonic Sensor"
Signetics announced the NE555 timer/oscillator IC in 1972, 50 years ago. Over five decades, this simple 8-pin chip has consistently sold in the billions, each year. It’s a perennial hobbyist favorite. Well-known authors such as Walter Jung wrote 555 timer cookbooks, and 555 circuits have been popular for new circuit designs since the 1970s. Engineering acceptance has been mixed. Some engineers routinely put 555 chips in their circuits. Others … Read More → "Happy 50th Birthday to the Signetics 555 Timer IC"
