Welcome to this week’s blog and hopefully the first of many sunny ones in June!

While the sun may be shining, our Fun Friday Fact relates to somewhat more wintery conditions. Have you seen the robot developed by engineers that play Curling? ‘Curly’ not only plays against its human pro competitors in this game of strategy and precision but also wins!

With two cameras powered by Artificial Intelligence, the robot can throw and then adapt its further shots. Although it cannot sweep so, human players need not retire just yet! But Curly is a fine example of technology’s role in automated parts of a job.

Are you working on or have an idea for making components? Are you looking for a cost-effective solution for these? If so, we are here to help. With our vast experience, we can integrate Mechanical Design with electronic components by working with a multi-disciplined team. We can design around existing electronics and create mechanisms. We will work with you, from concept sketches to production-ready engineering drawings. Here’s an example of a bespoke design request to combine an existing speaker with a heart shape case. This one is about combining looks with a practical case. 

As a reminder, we bill for all contracts over 2 hours per minute. You only pay for the time we spend on your project. Sound good? Please visit our website or give us a call – 01373 801 803 to see how we can benefit your work.
