Siemens’ latest MRI machine (Magnetom Prisma Tim+Dot System 3 Tesla) is one of the most powerful, state of the art medical imaging devices in the marketplace. The first Magnetom Prisma 3-tesla MRI units was installed in the USA at the University of Minnesota a year ago. Now there are about 50 units in…
With its new Freshness Center refrigerator, Siemens wants you to get rid of that freezer bag sealing contraption on your counter. In addition to the standard fridge and freezer compartments, the KG38QAL30 has a third drawer with a section that vacuum seals itself, preserving fresh foods like vegetables and meats up…
The first commercial offshore wind turbine that Siemens created 30 years ago had 5-meter long blades and produced a paltry 30kW. A lot can change over three decades. The company's newest offshore model isn't just the biggest in the sea; it's the biggest anywhere.
You're peering down the main supporting tower of Siemens' latest offshore wind turbine—which just happens to be the biggest of its kind anywhere in the world.
For off-shore wind farms to become an economically feasible alternative energy source, each turbine needs to be big. Like, really big. That's why the latest turbine blade from Siemens is gigantic—just a hair shorter than the wingspan of an Airbus 380.
If oppressive regimes want to stay oppressive, they need to fear—and wield—technology like a sword covered in napalm. And in most cases, they can't do that without using outside help. Here are the five worst corporate collaborators in technology.
As nuclear power continues to fall out of favor, California is making big investments in alternative energy sources to meet rising demand. One of its most ambitious projects will use the Mojave sun to power over a quarter million homes.
Forgive my ignorance, but the Siemens miniTek hearing aid "audio system" is the first I've seen that combines Bluetooth, mp3 and other wireless controls with the traditional sound-boost typically associated with these devices. Did the hearing aid just get cool?
I'm baffled. How a phone that is both a writing utensil and a device for making calls to other humans—humans who might also be writing with their pen phones when I call upon them—could fail is beyond me.
In some interesting research by Siemens, wireless data has been successfully, wirelessly transmitted at 500Mbps using white LEDs.
With 9,000 LEDs, a little superglue and some holiday magic, Siemens and artist Michael Pendry teamed up to turn a wind turbine outside Munich into "the world's biggest revolving Christmas star." It uses as much energy as a hairdryer.
Siemens discControl knobs are perfect for the iPod generation in that they're completely touch based sliders, as the product's name suggests. But beyond that they hide a very cool, very safe little feature for households with small children.
The role of the internet in Iran's recent unrest has been stunning; so too have been the regime's efforts to minimize it. Luckily for the government, Iran's networks are rigged for suppression, courtesy of Nokia and Siemens.
Craziness: Buy one Fujitsu laptop, get a new one every three years until you're dead. That's basically the crazy principle behind Fujitsu's Laptop4Life program. Sure, you have to buy the extended 3-year warranty at first, not damage the old machine too much, and hang onto the receipt for grim death, but then you'll…
A trio of girls has scooped the honors in Siemens' Math, Science and Technology Prize, the first time in the competition's nine-year history. According to James Whaley, President of the Siemens Foundation, the percentage of girls taking part in the competition has been steadily increasing each year—and this year, 48%…
Microsoft and Siemens are set to collaborate to bring in-car entertainment and navigation products to a vehicle near you. They hope to develop a set of products that will allow for a better integration between mobile phones, music players and other ubiquitous gadgets.
Why waste $4 every morning on a venti coffee from Starbucks? That sort of thing adds up, you know. You really should be making your coffee at home. I'd like to say that installing this Siemens in-wall coffee maker in your kitchen would be an example of some financial responsibility, but it clearly isn't. But hey, if…
Whispers abound that Playboy is about to launch itself into the mobile phone market, with LG, Motorola and Siemens (well, whaddaya know?) most likely front-runners to carry the iconic bunny badge on their mobiles. Anyone have any questions? I know I do...
