In the picture here you can see the 10 meter long modern bamboo bridge under 8 ton traffic loading testing that opened for traffic this week.
Upcoming engineering projects using bamboo include bridge spans for foot traffic in rural areas and a 2 story single-family house.
Using bamboo just makes sense, it’s a sustainable environmentally friendly construction material, plus this stuff grows like weeds so there’s a never ending supply
The Ares I launch vehicle is a key component of the Constellation Program, which will send humans to the moon by 2020 to set up a lunar outpost.

IEEE has put together a working group for Body area network (BAN), 802.15.6, is a low-frequency technology intended to endow a future generation of short-range electronics, both in a body and on or around it, with a wireless communication standard for exchanging information.
These devices, communicating through wireless technologies, transmit data from the body to a home base station, from where the data can be forwarded to a hospital, clinic or elsewhere, real-time.
Examples of devices include smart implants like cochlea, artificial heart, capsule endoscope and more.
