The Desktop 3D Scanner from NextEngine (Santa Monica, CA) was named NTB's Product of the Month for April. A full-color multi-laser scanner that scans complex shapes for CAD and 3D design applications on the desktop, the scanner is about the size of a cereal box and connects directly to a PC via USB 2.0. It operates with proprietary MultiStripe Laser Triangulation (MLT) technology that features twin arrays of four Class 1M 10-mW solid-state lasers with custom optics at a 650-nm wavelength. The scanner also features twin 3-megapixel CMOS RGB image sensors, optically synchronous RGB color texture capture, and built-in spatially diverse white-light texture illuminators.

Grand Prize Winner, “Create the Future” 2006 Design Contest

Integrated Motor/Pump David A. TorreyWinner of a hybrid automobile or $20,000 Designed by:David A. Torrey, Ph.D., P.E. Advanced Energy Conversion LLC Malta, NY There is tremendous interest today in reducing the parasitic losses in engineered vehicle systems in order to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. This is particularly true in mobile systems, where efficiency improvements are directly translated into reduced size, reduced weight, increased range, and simplified logistics. Advanced Energy Conversion (AEC) has developed a highly integrated fluid pump that can be an important element in advancing the state of the art in fluid handling for high-performance applications.
