OUR WORLD-WIDE WIRELESS WORLD
Date: Friday, May 4, 2018 @ 10 AM
Sometimes, in our haste for more and faster data and instant on-demand wireless services, we forget to ask how all the magic happens. Come hear an informative talk about how a lot of the wireless world works. From the initial cell phones to mobile computing platforms of the future, to the basics of GPS, to streaming TV, to air traffic control and military communications, and even to how automobiles are incorporating more and more wireless features. We just may have to spend a moment to mention smoke signals and Morse code to put this all into perspective.
WIRELESS APPLICATIONS IN SPORTS, FITNESS, AND ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES
Date: Thursday, September 14, 2018 @ 10 AM
Who’d have guessed fifty years ago that wireless gadgets and technology would have infiltrated so many aspects of sports, adventure, and athletics? Curious? Come participate in a discussion of present day examples of interconnectivity, such as how we’re able to view, in real time, what Olympic contestants see while competing, how doctors can render aid to climbers on Mt. Everest from their offices half a world away, how drones incorporate wireless data links and sensors, and more.
