26-year-old engineer David Sengeh developed a comfortable version of a prosthetic socket that is 1/100th the cost of normal materials used in prosthetic limbs. David is also the person who helped bring Kelvin Doe, from our post a few weeks ago, to MIT from Sierra Leone to work on his RF receivers.

We congratulate David for this great achievement and for continuing to promote engineering around the world!

Google has partnered with the World Resources Institute to use big data to promote environmental activism. Together, they created Google Forest Watch, which shows real-time deforestation around the world. The system can also track signs of illegal logging and burning and send out alerts. http://bit.ly/1qKwo6g

The subways of Philadelphia in the United States have started capturing energy from braking trains and using it to power their train stations. Read more about this technology and how it’s reducing energy use by 30%:

It certainly is an obvious thing to do , but late is better than not at all. At least energy is being saved NOW.

Did you know MIT student Dudley Buck was one of the main reasons engineers started building computers in the 1950’s with magnetic cores instead of vacuum tubes? Before his sudden death in 1959 he invented the “cryotron,” a superconducting switch. Its concept is being used today by companies like IBM in the pursuit of quantum computing.

Watch these kids attempt to operate Sony’s first Walkman. Many had never seen or heard of a cassette tape and took multiple attempts to make it work: http://bit.ly/1gDzOkA

In 10 years, what piece of current technology do you think kids will no longer understand?

The wristband pictured here is actually a new kind of thermoelectric generator. It can be bent, weighs just around 10 grams and produces 40 mW of electric power.
