New Year’s Day 2013 Google Doodle

By |December 31st, 2012|

This year the “New Year’s Day 2013” Google Doodle is slightly different from previous year’s New Year’s Day Google Doodles. Instead of wishing the world a “Happy New Year 2013” Google have chosen to link directly to the New Year’s Day 2013 search results instead of the “Happy New Year” tradition. If you however hover over the “New Year’s Day 2013” Google Doodle there is a “Happy New Year” message.

3D rapid prototyping enables Ford engineers to create workable parts right at their desks digitally – increasing global efficiency, greatly reducing development time and time to market, and saving cost
Ford is a leader in 3D printing, investing in efforts not only to enable engineers to create an entrepreneurial spirit through experimenting at their workstations, but also investing in one of the newest forms of 3D printing with sand to help develop production-representative parts
Manufacturing and desktop rapid prototyping converge as each Ford EcoBoost® engine – now available in the upcoming Transit Van, all-new Fusion, 2014 Fiesta and full-size F-150 pickup – utilizes the technology to develop parts

DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 26, 2012 – In Ford’s Silicon Valley Lab, Dave Evans creates a custom vehicle gauge and emails the 3D design to Zac Nelson in Dearborn. Nelson uses the MakerBot® Thing-O-Matic™ at his workstation and prints up a physical prototype.

Google Santa Tracker, Maps the answer to Where is Santa Now!

23 December 2012 – Johannesburg South Africa

“Picture of our Saint Bernard Wanja waiting for Santa to come on Christmas Eve 2012”

I remember when I was a kid one of the worst Christmas Traditions were to wait for Santa Clause to come and bring presents. I used to ask my parents a thousand times “Where is Santa” and I must have driven them insane with the continuous “where is Santa” now questions. It is amazing how technology can change things. Today my kids asked me “Where is Santa” and it was easy for me to answer the question.
