Always Be Curious🔎

June 14 · Issue #25 · View online
Always Be Curious is your weekly shot of sci-tech coverage. Bringing you the now, the how and the wow of science and technology with a special focus on the chip industry.

Man. My week was like a layer cake of different ways to experience the world. 🍰 First, I spent part of the week in augmented reality: the story of how ASML uses AR for the benefit of the world’s major chipmakers was picked up by reporters in the States and the Netherlands. 🔥 I’ve included the key coverage in this edition of ABC. Then I spent a couple of days fully immersed in cyberspace. ASML’s Technology Conference, the company’s centerpiece R&D event, took place entirely online. Featuring a custom designed streaming platform, live studio talk shows, 4 invited keynotes, 81 presentations and 340 research posters. Now that’s knowledge sharing in action. 🧠⚡️ And finally, there’s that physical reality: after 14 weeks of working from home, the company is slowly allowing bigger groups of employees to return to the office. It will be good to see my colleagues again. 🙏
Have a good week, stay safe,

After engineers of the city of San Francisco installed new railings to the Golden Gate Bridge, the structure started to sing on high-wind days. You can now hear these soothing/eerie/horror/maddening (indicate your preference) chimes all across town. 🌉🌁

As much as I would‘ve loved this eerie sound to be aliens coming for us, apparently it’s the installation of new wind resistance railing that has turned the Golden Gate Bridge into a huge instrument that can be heard all around the Bay!Hypnotizing! #goldengatebridge #SanFrancisco https://t.co/DhWEnttp2X
