Teaneck/Boston—Growing up with popular local obstetricians as his father and sister, Josh Meier, 20, was born with science in his blood.

In my last column I wrote about IoT—Internet of Things—items in your home that you will connect to the Internet so you can control them remotely.

SmartHomes are becoming very popular. People want to turn off lights, heat—and even alert us when the dog walks too far from the home. And all of this becomes pretty impossible unless you build a brand new house with all of technology built in.

Today, even light bulbs come with connection capabilities. There are pretty much three types of bulbs today. Incandescent, compact fluorescent lamps and LED...

E-mail Print PDF

(Jerusalem Post) Haifa’s Technion-Israel Institute of Technology has installed a million-dollar 3D printer for printing out metal products such as titanium parts for the space industry, dental crowns and implants, bone replacements and more. The printer melts metal powder with electron beams and forms it into a customized solid. The printer has already been used to print a prototype of a satellite fuel container. In the future, the engineers will print engine blades and metal implants for knees.
