A theoretical contribution to the study of computer-mediated communication food, April 14, 2009 the Essen received studies on semiotics and communication research again increase. 28 contribution of the book series laid at Shaker in the trade is now available with the new release of first impression from second hand”. Author Sascha Postner deals with interpersonal encounters in avatar-based online worlds in this band. In the case of second life, he pointed what socio perceptive contact options available to users in three-dimensional virtual worlds available and what impact this may have on computer-mediated communication. While second life has now largely disappeared from the media interest, many communication scientific questions remain to some extent in the present paper are edited and are also for the interaction in other virtual worlds, such as such as world of Warcraft or Habbo Hotel of importance. In addition to the structuring of interaction, such as reinsurance of mutual phenomena Among other things the social impression formation mechanisms are attention, attention.

So, for example, the effects of facial expressions, clothing and sex in virtual worlds, views are discussed and analyzed. Based on these findings the book devoted to the question of whether communication in virtual space as compared to face-to-face communication as the deficit is, or the compensatory abilities of users dominate the interaction in addition. Here succeeds in obtaining an own position the author, that other forms of communication and species can make a valuable contribution for the research. First impression of second hand”is a recommended reading not only for the scientifically interested, even everyday secular readers coming at this book at their own expense. Readers unfamiliar with online communication in virtual worlds are ushered through many situational and plastic examples and descriptions in the subject. The series Essen studies on semiotics and communication research relies on the institutional Merger of three editors, Prof. Dr. H.W..

Innovation Gone Wrong

Potential for innovation in other sectors find and systematically implement with INNOWAVE the Fraunhofer IAO a new approach for the early stage in the innovation process developed. The idea is to look for pulses or new product features in ancillary disciplines and systematically implement. Many roads lead to innovation. To its own innovation pipeline constantly to fill, should companies pursue not only the occurred paths in the innovation process, but more often try to get led astray to the target. Because only someone who dares to look outside the own box, takes a different angle or creative infidelities taking, encounters impulses, ideas and solutions that have the potential to create unique selling proposition in the own environment. But the search should be carried out systematically according to external sources of innovation, otherwise it leads to the sidelines. Currently, so-called cross-industry innovations usually without specific procedural models and methods are being realised.

The existing approaches are not widespread and is based on a rather”reactive” guiding principles: for specific technological problems is sought in other industries after analog solutions. The disadvantage: the external impulses come only in the detail of the product concept. But why should companies use only the possibilities of transfer of know-how features, if they are already restricted by the limit of technological issues? Why should you have to forgo to the creative potential of other industries in the early stages of the innovation? The INNOWAVE approach developed by the Fraunhofer IAO closes this gap and offers companies the opportunity to take advantage of the potential of branchenfremder innovations already in the early stages of the innovation. The method follows the principle systematically and proactively exploit creative infidelities. It used also the creativity and know-how of other industries with a high degree of interaction. INNOWAVE is based on a four-dimensional model of decision with the Plains transfer and search box. Control and level of interaction, source of innovation and maturity of the innovation contribution.

Innovation leaders and strategic decision-makers can using this model in the planning phase are the crucial issues and on this basis to develop a systematic search strategy to ancillary contributions of innovation. A detailed representation of the INNOWAVE approach is available as a PDF. This, as well as more ways to more and better innovations by impulses from outside discuss international experts from industry and academia on April 5, 2011, in the framework of the forum open innovation the next wave? in the Stuttgart Institute Center of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

The development of CNC lathes was mid-70s started and since then constantly developed further. The development of CNC lathes was mid-70s started and since then constantly developed further. This is the CNC for ‘Computerized Numerical Control’, translated ‘computerized numerical control’. The big advantage of a CNC controlled machine is that the information for processing is stored and repeatedly applied for each workpiece. Even complex workpieces can be produced relatively easily. Just repeatedly retrieve the already stored information.

More general benefits of a CNC lathe are very high productivity, because produced in large quantities in series at constant quality. In addition also the production time remains the same always, facilitating planning. The CNC turned parts manufactured most exactly in the machines. The diameter of the rotating parts vary in a range between 2 and 220 millimeters. The rotating parts are also in the production heat treated and finally, upper surface treatment to ensure a long-lasting quality.

The high cost is the major drawback of the CNC lathes, however, however these are always low. Conventional lathes without CNC control be purchased only in exceptional cases. In addition to the high cost are also high expenditure on maintenance and service must be performed mostly not by internal employees, but due to the high complexity of the machines mostly from external providers.
