Visiting Chicago this week for the annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting. Working with my client TEAL Electronics. PowerWare and Caterpillar are also here, but mostly not a lot of power quality vendors. It’s mostly medical imaging companies selling to the radiologists, rad techs, and dept managers, but there is a lot of internal churning going on.
It’s been great seeing old colleagues; I have not been to the show in 4 years. Also, lots of interesting PQ projects and programs are getting discussed, lots of networking and renewed relationships. Good stuff…..
I just went through the proceedings from the recent Power Quality conference.
62 Men. 3 Women (myself, a recruiter, one other woman). 8 Ungendered (unfamiliar names or just initials). Sobering.
Picked this one up for the Power Quality conference. It’s a wireless, handheld mouse called the Gyration Ultra GT. It has a range of about 30′ (most wireless mice go 3′ – 5′ max). It works on the desktop *or* in the air (gyroscopes or something). It’s pretty cool. And best of all, the mouse thing seems to work and be useable – which is pretty rare with these presentation tools. About $80…..
