    Make Music With Everyday Objects Using Ototo

    spectrum.ieee.org 30 Jan '15, 8pm

    The Ototo board is an invention for musical innovators; it is to would-be creators of playable instruments what a prototyping board is to circuit builders. The board makes it easy to connect both everyday objects and a wide range of analog sensors to a music synthesizer. Any vaguely c...

    Video Friday: Robot Skiing, Cow Art by Drone, and 11 Years Roving on Mars

    spectrum.ieee.org 30 Jan '15, 7pm

    I don’t think I’m ever going to get tired of writing articles about how the Opportunity rover is still doing amazing and awesome science on the surface of Mars. Oppy has now been operational for 11 years, which works out to just under 4,000 Martian days. The rover’s warranty expired a...

    Graphene Becomes Magnetic and Electric at Same Time

    spectrum.ieee.org 29 Jan '15, 8pm

    Combining the electric with the magnetic in one material has become a hot research pursuit lately. First researchers exploited the natural properties of bismuth ferrite . Then researchers engineered both electric and magnetic polarization in perovskite —a material that does not have t...

    FCC Redefines Broadband: Lack of Competition Now Obvious

    spectrum.ieee.org 30 Jan '15, 5pm

    Just last week, broadband Internet access in the United States was looking pretty good: 99 percent of Americans had access to broadband speeds [pdf] (even if they weren’t yet taking advantage of them). In addition, competition seemed if not fierce, at least existent: nearly 75 percent...
