Watch the Total Lunar Eclipse Turning the Moon Red. Today!

You can watch a live broadcast here! Today, October, 8, at 11.30 AM in Norway, the moon will pass behind the center of Earth’s shadow and turn a rusty red color. Most people probably won’t be able to see this total lunar eclipse, because it will occur mainly over the Pacific Ocean. But don’t worry. You can watch a live broadcast here!

High Speed Rail (Bullet Train) from Tianjin to Beijing

Last summer I attended two conferences in China. The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation (ICIA), in Hailar and the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA), in Tianjin. On my way to Tianjin, I took this amazing super fast train. The train is able to reach speed peaks of about 400 km/h. And it makes almost no noise, at all! Enjoy the video :)

Innovating teaching at Aalesund University College with Arduino and Open Source software

In 2011, when I started assisting Professor Houxiang Zhang in teaching the Mechatronics course at Aalesund University College (AAUC), I proposed a new idea which, at that time, I was not totally aware of its power. I proposed to introduce the use of Open Hardware and Open software platforms for teaching. Professor Zhang supported my idea. It was the beginning of a small revolution.
