Thankful Times

Embedded Software Store, DigitalOptics, and Intelligent Robots

In honor of Thanksgiving next week, we’re serving up a bountiful virtual turducken* of EE goodness. For the first course, we tackle that age old question: How do you train a fleet of robots to obey your every command? (The key to this quandary may be as close as the eyes on our faces.) In our next course, we serve up a feast of embedded software and embedded IP with Sheneka Coleman from Avnet. Lastly, we finsh up our fine Friday Fun meal with a tasty morsel from Eric Sigler of DigitalOptics. (DigitaOptics’s new mems|cam may change how we interact with our smartphones forever.) This Thankgiving fryer won’t be hot for too much longer, so dig in while the gettin’s good.
