One of the things you find yourself doing as a young engineer is equipping yourself with

One of the things you find yourself doing as a young engineer is equipping yourself with the tools of your trade. These will be the foundations upon which your career is built in a way that a diploma or degree certificate will never be, for the best degree in the world is less useful if the quality of your tools renders you unable to capitalise upon it. You may be lucky enough to make some of them yourself, but others you’ll lust after as unaffordable, then eventually put the boat out a little to buy at the limit of your meager income. Your bench may have a few of these lifetime tools. They could be something as simple as screwdrivers or you may have one of those indestructible multimeters, but in my case my lifetime tool is my soldering iron. At some time in 1992 I spent about £60($173 back then), a lot of money for a student, on a mains-powered Weller Magnastat. The World Wide Web was still fairly fresh from Tim Berners-Lee’s NeXT in those days, so this meant a trip to my university’s RS trade counter and a moment poring over a telephone-book-sized catalogue before filling in an order slip. The Magnastat is a simple but very effective fixed-temperature-controlled iron. The tip...

Acer Swift 7 SF714-52T Review: Slim and light subnotebook for a fat wallet

890 grams (~1.96 lb). With the Swift 7, Aces has added a feather-light and ultra-slim 14-inch notebook to its offerings. The device scores with an IPS touchscreen display, 16 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode), and silent operation. This is accompanied by a good battery life and two Thunderbolt-3 slots. For the whole package, you have to put almost 2000 Euros (~$2226; $1700 in the US) on the table. The Acer Swift 7 SF714-52T brings less than a kilogram to the scale and is thus one of the lightest 14-inch notebooks available. In order to be able to manufacture a device that is as slim as possible, Acer has foregone an actively cooled CPU, using a passively cooled model with the Core i7-8500Y processor instead. The Swift 7 has nothing to do with anything like an over abundance of competitors. Besides the LG Gram 14Z980 and the Acer Swift 5 SF514-52T, there are only two other 14-inch devices that can come close to the Swift 7, at least in terms of weight. We therefore also include the Asus ZenBook 14 UX433FA (14 inch), Apple MacBook Air 13 (13,3 inch), and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2019 (14 inch) into our expanded group of competitors. 14 inch 16:9, 1920 x 1080 pixel 157 PPI,...

Ford Mustang Mach E specs leaked, $36-53k*, 230-300mi, 3-6sec 0-60 (Update: real photo)

Pricing, specs, and configurations of Ford’s upcoming Mustang Mach E electric SUV have leaked just days ahead of Ford’s November 17 Mach E launch. The information was all posted to Ford’s website, and it looks like it includes just about everything there is to know about the car. The leak was found by buzznwood at Mach E Forum, who was testing random URLs and found the right one. He took several screenshots of the site before Ford took it down. First, the trims. All prices below are pre-incentive prices. Since Ford still has access to the US federal tax credit, cars will be $7,500 cheaper for the end user. This incentive is reflected above in this article’s headline. First off, the “First edition” will start at $59,900 with a 270-mile range and mid-5-second 0-60, AWD and 19-inch wheels.  The first edition will be a limited run with an exclusive body color (grabber blue), red brake calipers, and unique stitching. On to normal models, the Mach E “Select” model, which seems to be the base model, will start at $43,895 with a 230-mile range, mid-5-second 0-60, and AWD or RWD options with 18-inch wheels. The next model up is “Premium” at $50,600 with 300-mile range and 19-inch wheels....

R22-UV unmanned helicopter joins UAVOS fleet for precision agriculture

Drones are essential to precision agriculture, in which water, fertilizer, and pesticides are applied by aerial drones. Not only can farmers target the amounts applied to crops and save costs, but they can also more closely monitor conditions. UAVOS Inc. yesterday announced the addition of the R22-UV unmanned helicopter to its fleet of aircraft for precision farming. The company converted a Robinson-22 helicopter into an unmanned vehicle. “Farmers today have a variety of complex factors that influence the success of their farms,” Aliaksei Stratsilatau, CEO of UAVOS, told The Robot Report. “From water access to changing climate, wind, soil quality, the presence of weeds and insects, variable growing seasons, and more. With spot spraying afforded by drones, this same task can be accomplished in less time, with fewer monetary resources, and a reduced environmental cost.” Mountain View, Calif.-based UAVOS develops hardware and software for precision agriculture, integrates turnkey solutions, and converts manned aircraft into unmanned vehicles. It also designs, develops, and manufactures components such as servo drives, pan-tilt platforms, and rescue and emergency landing systems. UA...

TECLA: WASP and MCA develop 3D printed homes for sustainable living

Italian 3D printer manufacturer WASP is collaborating with Mario Cucinella Architects (MCA), an architectural firm based in Bologna. Together the partners are 3D printing a model for a sustainable global habitat.  Named TECLA, the housing model is based on a circular manufacturing process utilizing reusable, recyclable materials taken from the local terrain. It is built using the Crane WASP construction 3D printer, and represents an attempt at establishing an “eco-housing” solution.  WASP and MCA, with help from various partners, have embarked on the project in response to exponential population growth and subsequent lack of housing. Planned for construction near Bologna, Italy, the two firms received clearance for a TECLA prototype in May 2019, with 3D printing beginning in September. It is due for completion in early 2020. “Together with WASP we aim at developing an innovative 3D-printed prototype for a habitat that responds to the increasingly urgent climate revolution and the needs of changes dictated by community needs,” explains Mario Cucinella, MCA founder.  “We need a paradigm shift in the field of architecture that gets closer to the needs of people, thus finding an an...
