Gulf Power’s residential demand response program may be 20+ years old, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t kept up with the times. In fact, last summer it was tapped twice to do something it wasn’t even designed for -- to help the utility’s distribution grid operators avoid blackouts or equipment overloads on a specific feeder.  Here’s how Caroline Stickel, team leader at Gulf Power’s Energy Select program, described it in an interview at the Itron Utility Week conference in Houston this week....

Robots increasingly have to interact with ordinary (that is to say, human-focused) objects and environments, and part of that is imitating the extremely delicate and complex human grip. A new type of electronic skin allows a robot to feel not just the pressure from its grip, but whether and in what direction an object is sliding or slipping. Read More

Given the youth of the cleantech industry, there isn’t a ton of publicly accessible guidance on how to succeed with a startup.

In September, Oakland incubator and accelerator Powerhouse and Greentech Media kicked off a project called Watt It Takes. The monthly conversation happens live at Powerhouse, and is broadcast subsequently via Greentech Media’s...

A recent Amazon patent could be an answer to range anxiety, albeit one that sounds a bit more sci-fi than practical solution at the moment: the newly granted patent (via Roadshow) describes a drone that could carry a battery charge for electric cars, and deliver them to any cars out on the road that need them while in route, providing enough juice to get to a proper charging station.… Read More

Once upon a time, Microsoft had a whole line of gaming hardware under the Sidewinder brand, and while they never really put a dent in Razer or Logitech, they put out some decent mice (the X3 “might serve as a good introduction to multiple DPI settings for your mom or dad,” I wrote in 2010).

The theme of this year’s collection has an intriguing slogan – ‘An Intimate Look’. Stefano Gaggero, artistic director of the new Flexform MOOD project, has been responsible for the overall...

Associated with the notorious Pruitt-Igoe housing complex in St Louis, Missouri, demolished in 1972, or JG Ballard’s dystopian 1970s novel High-Rise, residential towers have acquired a bad name. The fire at Grenfell Tower compounded this. Yet new-build towers are less likely to require retrofitting to avert this catastrophe. And they’re an important high-density housing solution in cities. While 20th-century residential towers were routinely denounced as dehumanising, today they increasingly...
