TECHNOLOGY: Italian engineers help coronavirus patients by harnessing snorkel masks for CPAP machines | Fox News

Speaking with Fox News, Romaioli said that Favero proposed an idea: making an “emergency ventilator mask” by modifying a snorkeling mask that was available to the public. The teams contacted Decathlon, the French sporting goods retailer, about the Easy Breath Surface Snorkeling Mask. Isinnova said that Decathlon immediately provided the 3D computer-aided design for the mask, so the engineers could easily evaluate what modification could be made.

Some smart engineers make every CPAP machine a ventilator.

Great work!

Boeing is not having a good 12 months.

Someone cut one corner too many … again.

Wonder how many heads will roll?

Will this be like an auditor having Enron on their resume?

Could be career equivalent of the “kiss of death”.

 TECHNOLOGY: Bring Drug Dispensing Into the Modern Age With Vending Machines | Cato @ Liberty

The technology has been around for a while. Vending machines have dispensed Plan B emergency oral contraceptive—the so‐​called “morning after pill”—on college campuses since at least 2017. Arizona State University and Florida State University installed pharmaceutical vending machines to dispense a wide range of drugs in their Student Health Services buildings back in 2014.

I LOVE the idea of the drug vending machine.  I hope we see more of these.

SOFTWARE: The app what3words can save frustration and maybe more

2019-Oct-07

Recently went to the Octoberfest at:

Deutscher Club of Clark 787 Featherbed Ln, Clark, New Jersey 07066, United States
///ranged.after.accent

It was mobbed. More than ususal. And, once again, we had trouble finding our firends.

If only, they were what3words Users!

They could have told me EXACTLY where on the property they were.

///making.vest.doctor (or https://what3words.com/making.vest.doctor)

And we would have linked up without the searching.

And, in case your wondering, cell phones were unusable because of poor signal and the loud music.

Argh!

It’s a great tool that EVERYONE should have for that one time when you really need it.

imho
