Nest has a new home within Google — and a new boss. Employees were notified Tuesday that Marwan Fawaz is stepping down as CEO of Nest Labs, and that the smart thermostat maker will now be combined with Google’s home devices unit. The shift, first reported by CNET, comes five months after Nest reintegrated with the search giant. Nest had been operating independently as an Alphabet subsidiary, listed as one of its “other bets.” In February, Nest was brought into Google’s hardware division to...

In a recent report and Politico op-ed, Jonathan Lesser of the Manhattan Institute purports to demonstrate that replacing internal combustion vehicles (ICVs) with zero emissions vehicles (ZEVs) will increase air pollution while having a negligible effect on climate change. This has sparked controversy by many within the electric vehicle industry — and the energy industry more broadly — because the research is demonstrably false. Conclusions are reached through misrepresentation and reliance...

Chelsea Sexton became an EV advocate after helping GM launch its EV1. (Image source: Chelsea Sexton) Long before the Tesla Roadster, Chevrolet Volt, and Nissan Leaf, the first purpose-designed production electric vehicle (EV) from a major manufacturer in the modern era was the GM EV1. Produced from 1996 to 1999, and available for lease only, the EV1 (the only passenger car sold under the GM brand name) quickly developed a devoted and nearly fanatical group of “owners.” They were among the...

Though they are best known as a popular candy, gummy bears have found a different use as a transport for microelectrodes with increased biocompatibility, thanks to researchers from the Technical University of Munich. A team there, collaborating with researchers at Germany’s Forschungszentrum Jülich Institute, has successfully used inkjet printing to attach microelectrode arrays to soft substrates including the gummy candies. This approach makes it easier than ever to use this technology in...

I have to hand it to 8BitDo. At first I thought they were just opportunistically hawking cheap hunks of plastic in an era of unparalleled nostalgia for retro games, but... well, who am I kidding? That's exactly what they're doing. But they're doing it well. And these new DIY kits are the latest sign that they actually understand their most obsessive customers.

Elon Musk recently laid out his plan for a government on Mars in one tweet: “Direct democracy by the people. Laws must be short, as there is trickery in length. Automatic expiration of rules to prevent death by bureaucracy. Any rule can be removed by 40% of people to overcome inertia. Freedom.” That got us thinking. Could we craft an ideal U.S. energy policy in less than 280 characters? On this week’s podcast, we take up the challenge. Stephen and Shayle will lay out their overall approach...

For decades, the electronics industry has been stuck using the obsolete and inaccurate MIL-HDBK-217 to make reliability predictions that are required by the top of the supply chain (Department of Defense, FAA, Verizon, etc.). Each of these handbooks (some of which have not been updated in more than two decades) assigns a constant failure rate to every component. It then arbitrarily applies modifiers ("lambdas") based on temperature, humidity, quality, electrical stresses, etc. This simplistic...

In the age of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), a mobile robot is not simply one that has wheels. Today’s collaborative robots can increasingly be thought of as small autonomous vehicles. They combine sensing capabilities, machine learning, networking, and more to perform a range of job functions in dynamic environments. Depending on their application, their features and capabilities can greatly vary, as a panel audience found out at the Advanced Design and Manufacturing Show in New...

Not far from Tel Aviv a drone flies low over a gritty landscape of warehouses and broken pavement. It slowly approaches its home — a refrigerator-sized box inside a mesh fence, and hovers, preparing to dock. It descends like some giant bug, whining all the way, and disappears into its base where it will be […]

In March of this year, funding for the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) was approved by Congress for another year. The $24.1 budget for 2018 from the US Department of Energy (DOE) allows JCESR to continue its work on “beyond lithium” batteries. The DOE was also directed to move forward with a five-year renewal of JCESR. The review of that proposal is currently underway. JCESR got its start in 2012, when it was funded for five years with the vision, “to create game-changing,...

Stephen Burks’s design practice — its formal name is Stephen Burks Man Made — often involves a connection between tribal traditions and a contemporary aesthetic, fusing together age-old artisanal craft techniques with the designer’s point of view. Growing up as an African American in Chicago, Burks always felt a connection to Africa, but it wasn’t until his first visit to the continent in 2005 that it had such a profound effect on Burks that he decided to start imbuing his work with African...
