In the coming years, the Data Dashboard might not be the only way to interact with LabVIEW on a tablet.

 

 

National Instruments has set out to make portable technology like tablets and smartphones as productive as possible with an ecosystem of mobile applications and instruments. In this NIWeek 2012 keynote address, Kyle Gupton points out that LabVIEW is the most touch-ready language on the planet. Customers can already view their LabVIEW applications through the Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app, which has a new version launch coming up.

 

Watch as Jeff Kodosky, the father of LabVIEW, demonstrates a “very, very, very early version” of a touch-based interface for LabVIEW in this keynote address from NIWeek 2012. As NI engineers continue to develop interactive software solutions, users can look forward to the possibility of designing and editing LabVIEW diagrams without lifting a finger—literally.

Hold on to your electric vehicle seat; energy is going digital. When a technology goes digital, it changes everything. For starters, the rate of technology improvement takes a new slope—transitioning from glacially slow to exponentially fast. Think about online search and how it changed the way we find information, how social media changed the way we receive news, and how electronic books and e-readers changed the way we buy books. When a technology goes digital, words like “library,” “newspaper,” and “bookstore” start to sound like relics of the past.
