In this issue, editors Eyal de Lara and Keith Farkas review two products that enhance vehicular transportation: a Bluetooth audio head unit that seamlessly integrates with mobile phones and a system that uses mobile phone network usage data to determine average traffic speeds and areas of congestion. They also report on a laptop and related WiFi technology that significantly lower the barriers to such technologies' use in developing countries, a device that helps soldiers disarm landmines, a robot that moves on a ball, and a tiny self-contained wireless chip.
