    Researchers at Austin have been working on technologies termed solid freeform fabrication (SFF) or, as reported in the popular press, desktop manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and layered manufacturing. Such processes have the potential to produce accurate, structurally sound 3-D renditions of objects designed with computers and manufactured directly from a CAD database, without part-specific tool...

    The European Union's market opening are leading on a broad front to the restructuring of the railway industry. State train monopolies are being dismantled and railway services are being transformed into private companies.

    In the rarefied boardroom atmosphere, women still maintain only a small presence. To get a first-hand view of life on a board from a female perspective, this article details four women scientists and engineers who are corporate directors. That these women came-from diverse technical backgrounds and arrived at their board memberships by a variety of career paths attests to the fact that there is no... View full abstract»

    The MPEG-4 standard explores every possibility of the digital environment. Recorded images and sounds co-exist with their computer-generated counterparts, a new language for sound promises compact-disk quality at extremely low data rates; and the multimedia content could even adjust itself to suit the transmission rate and quality. Possibly the greatest of the advances made by MPEG-4 is that viewe... View full abstract»
