David Fambrough is a technical writer for Mouser Electronics. He’s adamant that Lost in Space, Star Trek and James Bond have had a strong role in inspiring innovation and new design.


Mailing Address... The Moon David Fambrough
Is there such a thing as moon stamps? What type of special mail truck would you need to carry mail to the moon? Think all of this is impossible, the stuff of science fiction? Well, there’s a first for everything. The company that’s making this a reality isn’t FedEx, DHL or UPS. Nor is it the U.S. postal service. Instead, it’s Google Lunar XPRIZE MILESTONE winner, Astrobotic.

Open Road of Discovery David Fambrough
Sometimes I feel the need to disappear, to suddenly pick up and leave – especially at those times when I feel the world is spinning just a little too fast. To slow it down, I find the perfect getaway vehicle is a car and an open road. It’s just the thing to clear my head and open myself up to new ways of thinking.

Outta the way Ferrari. 0 to 1000mph in X seconds. David Fambrough
Don’t know about you, but I’m always exploring the far reaches of cyberspace to find something out there that speaks to me. Something that makes me wonder and reply, “no freaking way.”

ePedal Power David Fambrough
Positioned as an alternative, more eco friendly answer to gasoline powered automobiles, there’s been lots of development and coverage on electric/hybrid vehicles. It wasn’t that long ago that the press proclaimed that the Tesla Model S was automotive perfection. (Or, as I would like to say in tribute to Ben Franklin… the tightest kite string in a bad storm with lightning.) All of that led me to wonder, what’s happening in the world of electric bikes or eBikes? After all, May is officially National Bike Month. Anyway, probably the most brilliant scientific and engineering mind ever, Albert Einstein, loved riding bikes. It even laid the groundwork to one of his greatest discoveries.
