The VI road show recently sent Jayson (click here to see his 5 new sub-vis) to Europe to visit a light bulb manufacturer.
The initial attraction of the trip was to see how of this company was using virtual instrumentation and motion control to produce one of their newer light bulb products. While there, we found an FPGA being used to test machine safety and alot of cool uses of fire. Fire is not an official component of virtual instrumentation, but always makes things more interesting (birthday candles anyone?)....this is the early, unofficial shoot from the trip.
