The Futures Channel / Design & Engineering 

Designing & Engineering Cell Phones

Your students are going to laugh when they see the size of the cell
phone that mechanical engineer Mike Spence worked on seventeen years
ago.  Cell phone design and technology have certainly come a long
way--but what haven't changed are the fundamental math and science
skills designers and engineers rely on to make ideas a reality.  Take
your students to Motorola to meet an industrial designer, a mechanical
engineer and a human factors engineer in this short documentary.

Watch the movie:

The Futures Channel was founded in 1999 with the goal of using new media
technologies to create a channel between the scientists, engineers,
explorers and visionaries who are shaping the future, and today's
learners who will one day succeed them.
