Low Cost/Low Power Radio Technology For Remote Control

Low Cost/Low Power Radio Technology For Remote Control 

A company called Green Peak has developed new low cost/low power radio technology for remote controls. Instead of that annoying point-it-a-device IR remote that needs new batteries every year, Green Peak’s remotes could last the life of the device it controls on a pair of cheap lithium ion button batteries.Not only does this technology enable better remote controls – they’ll work through walls up to nearly a hundred feet away – but could help eliminate the 8 billion dead remote control AA and AAA batteries that are tossed into the garbage each year.

NASA To Develop Nano-Satellites

NASA To Develop Nano-Satellites

NASA’s new nano-satellites – The Mini AERCam prototype is just 7.5 inches in diameter and weighs only 10 pounds

NASA announced today that it will team with m2mi to develop very small satellites, called nano-sats which weigh between 11 to 110lb, for the development of telecommunications and networking services in space.

NASA says large groups of nano-satellites can be grouped in a constellation, that will be placed in low Earth orbit to offer new telecommunications and networking systems and services.NASA and m2mi will develop what they call fifth generation telecommunications and networking systems for TCP/IP-based networks and related services.
