Tiny Turbines, Real Superhero Powers, and Servers-on-Chip

One part server-on-chip, two parts green energy – with a heavy sprinkling of superhero powers – this week’s Fish Fry takes on advances in connectivity. We investigate the University of Texas at Arlington’s unique collaboration with WinMEMS to create a new way to harness the wind to power your cellphone. Next, we chat with Mike Major (AppliedMicro) about how AppliedMicro is connecting the data center dots with some faster lines and finally, I’ll tell you how you might be able to get yourself some real superhero powers – using ultrasound.

We’re giving away a GertBoard (courtesy of Newark element14) to one lucky listener this week! Head on over to element14.com/fishfry to enter to win.
