Free sample

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2007 in the subject Engineering - Industrial Engineering and Management, grade: 1,0, Campus02 University of Applied Sciences Graz (Studiengang Innovationsmanagement), 17 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Die vorliegende Bachelor-Arbeit befasst sich mit biologischen sowie technischen Problemlösungsstrategien und hat zum Ziel, mögliche Verbindungen zwischen der Theorie des erfinderischen Denkens (kurz TRIZ) und dem Fachgebiet Bionik zu eruieren und zu analysieren. Die Analyse konzentriert sich einerseits auf die ‚Sieben Säulen’ sowie die ‚TRIZTrends’ der Innovationsmethodik ‚Systematic Innovation’ und andererseits auf das Konzept der biologischen Evolution nach Darwin sowie die ‚Zehn Prinzipien biologischen Designs’ der Bionik. Es werden Gemeinsamkeiten wie auch Unterschiede biologischer und technischer Strategien herausgearbeitet, entsprechende Beispiele angeführt und es wird versucht, die Relevanz dieser Erkenntnisse für humane Innovationsstrategien zu beurteilen. Als Resultat wird die Kombination bionischer und TRIZ-basierter Problemlösungsansätze als mögliche Grundlage für eine ganzheitliche, evolutionsorientierte humane Innovationsstrategie dargestellt.

"This is teaching at its best!"

--Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit), and author of Much Ado About Almost Nothing: Man's Encounter with the Electron (Booklocker.com)

"A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It's very good at disarming the fear. And it's gorgeous. I'll be recommending this book highly."

--Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things Talk

Want to learn the fundamentals of electronics in a fun, hands-on way? With Make: Electronics, you'll start working on real projects as soon as you crack open the book. Explore all of the key components and essential principles through a series of fascinating experiments. You'll build the circuits first, then learn the theory behind them!

Build working devices, from simple to complex You'll start with the basics and then move on to more complicated projects. Go from switching circuits to integrated circuits, and from simple alarms to programmable microcontrollers. Step-by-step instructions and more than 500 full-color photographs and illustrations will help you use -- and understand -- electronics concepts and techniques.

Discover by breaking things: experiment with components and learn from failure Set up a tricked-out project space: make a work area at home, equipped with the tools and parts you'll need Learn about key electronic components and their functions within a circuit Create an intrusion alarm, holiday lights, wearable electronic jewelry, audio processors, a reflex tester, and a combination lock Build an autonomous robot cart that can sense its environment and avoid obstacles Get clear, easy-to-understand explanations of what you're doing and why
How would you go about rebuilding a technological society from scratch?

If our technological society collapsed tomorrow what would be the one book you would want to press into the hands of the postapocalyptic survivors? What crucial knowledge would they need to survive in the immediate aftermath and to rebuild civilization as quickly as possible?

Human knowledge is collective, distributed across the population. It has built on itself for centuries, becoming vast and increasingly specialized. Most of us are ignorant about the fundamental principles of the civilization that supports us, happily utilizing the latest—or even the most basic—technology without having the slightest idea of why it works or how it came to be. If you had to go back to absolute basics, like some sort of postcataclysmic Robinson Crusoe, would you know how to re-create an internal combustion engine, put together a microscope, get metals out of rock, or even how to produce food for yourself?


Lewis Dartnell proposes that the key to preserving civilization in an apocalyptic scenario is to provide a quickstart guide, adapted to cataclysmic circumstances. The Knowledge describes many of the modern technologies we employ, but first it explains the fundamentals upon which they are built. Every piece of technology rests on an enormous support network of other technologies, all interlinked and mutually dependent. You can’t hope to build a radio, for example, without understanding how to acquire the raw materials it requires, as well as generate the electricity needed to run it. But Dartnell doesn’t just provide specific information for starting over; he also reveals the greatest invention of them all—the phenomenal knowledge-generating machine that is the scientific method itself. 


The Knowledge is a brilliantly original guide to the fundamentals of science and how it built our modern world.
