Fish Fry 500: The Best of Photonics (Now on Youtube!)

I have been fascinated by the manipulation of light since I was a kid. In another Fish Fry podcast playlist on Youtube, I investigate a variety of innovations in photonics. I chat with Dr. Eyal Cohen (Co-founder and CEO of Cognifiber) about Cognifiber’s glass-based chips, proprietary fibers, and embedded waveguides, and why the advancement of this kind of technology could revolutionize the world of edge computing. I also … Read More → "Fish Fry 500: The Best of Photonics (Now on Youtube!)"

Will X9 Spider Computer Systems Power the US Army in 2030?

A couple of weeks ago as I pen these words, I heard that the folks from General Micro Systems had taken home three “Best of Show” awards from the recent AUSA 2022 annual meeting and exposition, which was held 12-12 October in Washington DC, and whose purpose was to highlight computing innovations for building the Army of 2030. … Read More → "Will X9 Spider Computer Systems Power the US Army in 2030?"

DARPA Funds Space Lasers to Bring Non-Sectarian Internet Communications to Outer Space

Have you noticed that low-Earth orbit (LEO) is getting crowded? Several companies are developing globe-spanning satellite networks to provide Internet access to every square inch of the Earth’s surface. Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Starlink may be the most visible venture, but other entrants in this derby include Amazon’s Project Kuiper, SpaceLink, Viasat, and Telesat. On the one hand, it’s going to be … Read More → "DARPA Funds Space Lasers to Bring Non-Sectarian Internet Communications to Outer Space"

O-M-Gosh, I’ve Been Zeked! (Part 3)

As you may recall from my previous “O-M-Gosh, I’ve Been Zeked!” columns, 11-year-old Zeke is on a mission to talk to the astronauts and cosmonauts orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station (ISS). He started by getting his ham radio license when he was only 8 years old, and now he’s working on getting his 10-foot helical antenna to track the space station. … Read More → "O-M-Gosh, I’ve Been Zeked!

How Long Until We See Whales in Classrooms?

Do you remember all the hoopla about the company Magic Leap a few years ago? I’m trying to remind myself of the timeline. The company was founded in 2010 but was in stealth mode until around 2015. In 2016 they released a teaser video that showed what purported to be augmented reality (AR) in the form of a whale surprising school students by jumping into a gym. … Read More → "How Long Until We See Whales in Classrooms?"
