LabVIEW 2020 Community Edition has just been released (yesterday on the day I type this). I was part of the Beta test team. To celebrate the release, a flow to characterise a lab instrument: use a power supply and a digital meter to validate a DC load. Instruments used: PSU: Rigol 832A DMM: Keithley DMM6500 device under test: our eLoad. I made this LabVIEW flow because I needed it, not for this blog. But maybe that's an asset. It's a real flow. And it's not hard to adapt this to other ...
The sensors are incorporated into narrow channels of the garment, which can be worn to monitor vital signs, like breathing, heart rate, and temperature changes. (Image Credit: MIT)   Researchers from MIT have developed a new lightweight sensor that can be incorporated into flexible fabrics, such as polyester shirts, which could monitor vital signs, including body temperature, respiratory and heart rate. These sensors are also machine-washable, can be customized to fit the wearer, and they ...
UNI-T multimeters have spread widely in recent years, due to their low cost and characteristics that come closer to the higher-end DMMs. Many models have an interesting feature: the ability to connect to a computer via USB, for data logging.   For several years I have owned a UT-71A, with which I feel pretty good. In the original packaging, in addition to various adapters and test leads, I also found a USB interface cable. The same type of cable, cataloged on the official website as UT-D04 ...
The bacterium is capable of breaking down the chemical compounds of polyurethane. (Image Credit: imageBroker/Alamy)   Researchers from the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research in Leipzig, Germany, have discovered a new bacterium, identified as Pseudomonas putids, that produces enzymes to digest the chemical compounds of polyurethanes. The discovery is explained in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology.   The bacterium, which was discovered at a disposal area where plastic was ...
I can see this being how clothes are designed and made in the future. But, will we be able to leave home for extended periods of time? Anyway... fashion fanatics won’t have to worry about wearing clothes that aren’t perfectly fitted anymore. TG3D Studio, a startup company behind Virtual Try-On by Scanatic for Fashion, has unveiled its new changing room body scanner that takes measurements so you can get an exact fitting for your desired clothing at the store. It also uses a scanning ...
