A team from the University of Konstanz in Germany paired the Kinect with a vibrating belt for tactile feedback, a laptop backpack for a brain and a Bluetooth earpiece for verbal instructions to create a tool that can help the blind navigate on their own. It even reads QR codes, which allows the setup to provide even more information to the wearer. Of all the hacks so far, this is the one that seems most ready for mass production.
Notable: School self imposed a postseason ban to gain leniency from the NCAA. Case was embarrassing for Tech and NCAA because chief fact finder for school was faculty athletic representative Bob Sweazy, who also served as a NCAA vice president during time of violations. He failed to aggressively determine whether rules were being violated..

A new law went into effect on July 1 that allows judges, in illegal eviction cases, to hear only from tenants instead of waiting till both they and landlords could come to court. At a later date, judges pick up the case again and hear from both sides.
Specifically, the aim is to extract the maximum power density and torque per kilograms by utilizing high switching frequencies, high pole numbers and minimizing magnetic material content.In this work, the research has focused on developing a procedure to design the BLDC motor by selecting several parameters and analysing their effects on the overall performance. Therefore, this research involved software and hardware methods which are broken down into field and circuit modeling, calculation of basic dimensions, magnetic circuit calculations, stator slot design, winding design, performance and loss calculation and lastly prototyping. Magnet software for finite element method (FEM) analysis and analysis programs based on standard software are used to optimize the overall performances.
