Indeed, tight component and product cycles of use and reuse, aided by product design, help define the concept of a circular economy and distinguish it from the linear take–make–dispose economy, which wastes large amounts of embedded materials, energy, and labor. In the first exhibit of this narrated slideshow, McKinsey alumnus Markus Zils explains how a circular economy works. In the second, he uses the example of a market for power drills to detail four scenarios in which circular-economy principles are applied: In the status-quo scenario, 1,000 power drills are made in China and sold in the European Union.

MissionControl - A Flexible API for Remote Device Control In a race to optimize everything, developers often go to extremes to build software that performs routine tasks. MissionControl is a system that allows users to program a control center that stores interfaces with attached hardware sensors, allowing the users to control any other devices that can be activated via the underlying protocol. For demo purposes, the MissionControl build at this point is compatible with the Phidgets IR hybrid sensor.

Node Garden The graphic rendering of the node garden is a five step process: First the substrate paths are drawn (light grey and curvy). Substrate paths instantiate nodes as they grow, but the rendering of the nodes is postponed until all paths have been drawn. Next the nodes are back painted. Back painting includes a solid black circle for the node itself, plus a bit of dark glow to give the illusion the node is embedded in the surface. This process uses the DARKEST image blending mode of Processing so that the white square of the source image does not overdraw the substrate paths.
