OLED Installation inspired by Japanese tradition

The use of electronics is often seen as functional, but there is also the creative use for electronics to create art. Check out this art installation of OLED lights that was inspired by the Japanese custom of Yozakura. The lights are designed to imitate the flowing of cherry blossoms in the wind at night.

Student Project – Autoshift

AutoShift is a digital gearing system for the standard mountain bike. It is designed to work very similarly to the automatic transmission of a car. As the user rides the bike, the system will monitor the speed at which the bike is traveling and the current amount of force the user is applying to achieve current speeds. With this information, the system will make adjustments to the gears to keep the user at maximum speed with as little force needed.

Introducing the New 1-Year Diploma in Electronics Engineering starting April 2012

Electronics Engineering and Robotics will aid agriculture in Japan’s tsunami zone

The tsunami (and subsequent nuclear fallout from Fukushima) that hit Japan last year badly polluted the land and left around 24,000 hectares of once-fertile farmland damaged. This was a great hit to the Japanese farming industry. In response, the agricultural ministry developed a six-year plan to send unmanned tractors to work the fields. Big technology companies such as Panasonic, Hitachi and Sharp are expected to join the project.
