This seminar is intended to offer a taste of how the hardware that is powering
the information age really works. Electrical engineers must invest
considerable effort to learn their science and math fundamentals.
Eventually, though, the fun comes in building innovative and practical
gadgets. We will side-step the science and math and get right into
the hardware. We'll take a look at what's inside some of today's
most exciting products and technology as well as look ahead at the future
products that are just around the corner. Our focus will be on hardware
and we will see how much fun engineers can have using their hands other
than by typing on a keyboard.
