Robot Technology

As we move further into the technological era of the 21st century, there’s a single question at the forefront of society’s mind. Where is automation taking us? Science fiction has long been predicting the use of Robots in the future, but the future is now. From Tesla’s partnership with Uber to create self-driving cars, to Amazon’s drone delivery and robotic dog project, large corporations are in a race for automation. Artificial intelligence is expanding, and robot technology is becoming our reality. Its purpose is to make our lives more efficient: faster, easier, and smarter than ever before. Scientists and engineers are turning complex problems into elegantly reliable solutions. The applications started off small. From plugged in electronics to remote controlled technology, to the future of automatically performed tasks. Roomba by IRobot was released in 2002, the beginning of a new era. This robot technology solved a tedious problem: vacuuming floors for consumers. What used to take hours now takes no time at all. Just let the robot automatically roam a home for dust and dirt, it does the entire job for you. Fast forward a single decade and we can see this technology permeating the consumers market. Medical robots can perform complex surgeries, 3D printers can build houses in a fraction of the time of construction, and Artificial Intelligence can solve problems in real time due to complex algorithms. Robots now have speech recognition, depth perception for location and transportation utilization, and autonomy in decision making. Robots with a single …

Air Spring Industry for Vehicles & Firestone’s Ride-Rite

Firestone tires has built a reputation of excellence over the years. They are a common household name and the leading brand for tires and automotive services. But innovation has always been at the forefront of the company policy. That’s why Firestone Tire and Rubber Company founded Firestone Industrial products back in 1936. Henry Ford needed non-tire rubber components for a variety of parts for his cars. A mere two years later this groundbreaking company created a product that is still used today. In 1938 Firestone Industrial came out with the first patent for a pneumatic air spring, and they called it Air Ride. Air suspension is used in place of conventional steel springs in passenger cars and trucks, as well as in commercial transportation vehicles like buses and tow trucks.  Air suspension is powered by an electric or engine driven compressor. This compressor pumps air to inflate a rubber chamber and raises the vehicle’s body from its axles. This provides a smooth and consistent ride, as the compressor adjusts to bumps in the road to keep passengers from feeling them. This is the superior option over metal springs, due to its fluidity and versatility on the road. Firestone’s air spring systems are designed to maximize safe load carrying capacity, give stability to the vehicles suspension, improve handling, breaking and steering, and reduce wear and tear to the axles. And now, Firestone has taken it a step further. Ride-Rite is their newest version of Air suspension technology, and can improve gas …

Graphene & Angstron Materials

This planet is made of billions of combinations of the building blocks of the Universe. Scientists call these building blocks Elements, and they create everything in the natural world. Certain elements are extremely unstable, while others can conduct thermal, electrical, and mechanical energy. Neon and lead, for example, are hard to find substances. Steel and gold are very sought-after substances. While materials such as carbon and hydrogen are all over our planet. But sometimes engineers and scientists can arrange these elements to construct brand new materials. This is how Graphene was created. Graphene is composed completely of carbon atoms arranged into a hexagonal pattern. Carbon is an element that has a range of unique and useful properties. Many materials can do some of the things graphene can do, but the reason this product is so innovative is because it takes on multiple properties at once. For instance, graphene is 100x stronger than steel, yet it is a light and flexible material. It conducts electricity and heat better than copper, but it is compact and efficient. This can allow it to replace large and inefficient machinery in every field. Imagine cell phone batteries that charges in minutes and lasts days, or an electric car battery that goes hundreds of miles without a charge. This is the efficiency that Graphene is capable of. It can make technologies smaller, faster, and lighter. Which makes it a perfect material for this fast-paced and ever-changing world. Graphene is the greatest innovation in the 21st century …

Smartphone Protection and Evutec

Smartphones have evolved so much, especially in the past few years that we can’t live without them. From children to grandparents, every generation is addicted to them. From texting, social media, games and apps for everything you can think of. it’s hard to believe how we were able to survive without them. However, we use them so much that it’s not “if” but “when” some type of damage will happen to them, from cracked cases to damaged hardware, it comes with the territory. Damaged smartphones have caused billions in damages which opened up tremendous opportunities for smartphone protection. One of the problems with most of these protective cases is that they are too big, thick and bulky which sacrifices the sleek-ness to them. One company came up with a product to help protect smartphones without the bulkiness. We recently filmed a segment on the company Evutec at the CTIA wireless association tradeshow in Las Vegas. They went on to win 2 awards at CTIA, Best Minimalist Case and Best Product Design. One of the judges even had one of the covers on their phone as they were presenting the awards to Evutec. How is that for an endorsement! Evutec stands for ecology met with technology. One the ecology side, they use a lot of woods that are sustainable and recyclable. On the tech side, they use advanced materials including Kevlar which is a synthetic fiber that is lightweight, durable and extremely strong. For example, NASA uses Kevlar for their radone …

Culinary Industry and Johnson & Wales University

The culinary industry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. From the explosion of food trucks to celebrity chefs to reality shows to movies, chefs are the new rock stars. Not to mention many of them have that “rock star” look, with their sleeve tattoos to wild hair styles that make them hard to differentiate from someone in a band to someone that spends a lot of time in the kitchen creating amazing meals. In the past, to become a high-level chef you had to move to France and work your way up at a Michelin Star rated restaurant. However, there are many more options here in the States to get high-level culinary training. We recently filmed a segment at Johnson & Wales University (Miami Campus). The students there get incredible hands on experience. Covering all the bases where they have everything from stocks, soups and sauces to teaching international cuisine.

Whether they want to be a sous chef, pastry chef, private chef for a celebrity or eventually run their own restaurant, they equip their students with the tools and knowledge to pursue all of these areas of the culinary world. At Johnson & Wales University they also teach their students what “farm to table” freshness is really about right in their backyard. It’s all about respect for the ingredients and food that they use …
