A History of Vintage Consumer Electronics: The Marconi and Sinclair Collections

The history of consumer electronics goes back to the early 20th century, most precisely the 1920s. It was back then, one hundred years ago, when radio broadcasting incorporated the first major consumer product that went into mass production: The broadcast receiver. Manufacturers were overwhelmed by the demand for receivers. Existing units in dealers were sold out while customers lined up to complete order forms. The craziness for consumer electronics had just begun. The phonograph invented by

Cambridge Museum of Technology: A Story of Sewage and Waste Disposal in the Victorian Industrial Revolution

Smart Factory Enabling Electronics Engineers to Prototype Two Times Faster

Traditionally, electronics manufacturers had to use a decades-old, slow and transparent, outsourced contract-manufacturing process for the development of their printed circuit boards (PCB) and prototype products, a key component of electronics today. Prototyping has always been paramount to the development of final products that push the boundaries of technology and innovation. This was already true in the 1920s when the Prototyping becomes essential in technologies that are crucial to the cont

AI Facial Recognition and IP Surveillance for Smart Retail, Banking, and the Enterprise

Facial Recognition technology detects faces in the camera's field of view and matches them against faces previously stored in a database. Anti-spoofing is provided through liveness testing without the need for a stereo or a 3D camera. Face Recognition technology is now taking a further step as it is being combined with IP surveillance. Gemalto, a part of the Thales Group and a company that focuses on Digital Identification and Data Protection in order to counter the two root causes of cyberatta
