Together with COMSOL and Tech Briefs Media Group, Mouser will award the $20,000 grand prize to a team from Cornell University and Dimensional Energy of Ithaca, N.Y., for developing HI-Light, a “reverse-combustion” technology that potentially transforms carbon conversion into a profitable enterprise while reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The design team includes Xiangkun (Elvis) Cao, Jessica Akemi Cimada da Silva, David Erickson, Tobias Hanrath, Jason Salfi and Clayton Poppe.

Since 2014, Mouser has been a primary sponsor of the annual Tech Briefs Media Group’s Create the Future Design Contest, a global challenge to engineers and students to create the next great thing.

“We congratulate this year’s winners and thank all of the entrants for their participation. Part of our mission here at Mouser is fostering technical innovation so it’s a natural fit for us to support this global design contest that celebrates ingenuity,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We are seeing exciting advancements in electronic design thanks to the creative engineers and innovators across the globe, including those who entered the Create the Future Design Contest.”

The Create the Future Design Contest brings attention to product designs that enhance quality of life, improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare, and help to reduce dependence on nonrenewable energy sources. Finalists in seven categories receive a computer and recognition in Tech Briefs magazine's November 2017 issue. The winner of the Medical Category will be featured in the November 2017 issue of Medical Design Briefs magazine. The category-winning designs are:

  • Aerospace & Defense – The Airfoil Performance Monitor, a system that provides real-time information to pilots about the state of the airflow over the aircraft’s wings and tail.
  • Automotive/Transportation – The Heavy-Duty Aftermarket Super Truck, which reduces fuel consumption by up to 10 percent, under-hood heat by 50 percent, and fan noise by 50 dB.
  • Consumer Products – The Conformal Battery, which integrates a battery into the structural components of a product, eliminating the mass and volume of traditional battery packaging.
  • Electronics/Sensors/ IoT – Integrated Multi-Color Light Emitting Device Made with Hybrid Crystal Structure, a process for making red, green and blue LED device structures on the same substrate, which has not been possible using current techniques.
  • Machinery/Automation/Robotics – EJBot, a propeller-driven robot that can climb and inspect industrial structures and vessels, eliminating the danger posed by humans performing these actions.
  • Medical – The Arterial Everter, a tool that helps facilitate and reduce the time required to perform arterial microvascular anastomosis.
  • Sustainable Technologies – The Energy Saving Filter for Removal of Heavy Metals from Water, a one-atomic layer, carbon-based material that attracts heavy metal ions in aqueous solutions.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
