This is an open platform for contributions, so if you have information that can help, or stories to share where engineering and technology are being used against this virus, no matter how small, then please contribute.
Coronavirus has no boundaries and no preference to those who it infects, a virus only has one mission and that is to exist. Together it can be beaten, but it won't be easy, information is power, so stay safe and share.

good question. Have a look here:
Which coins are magnetic?
I have moved to a 1.0mm nozzle with an 0.8mm layer and down to 6 and a half hours print for the eight stack. Have upped infill to 20% for safety. Next a 16 stack perhaps ?
Thanks for sharing your experience Leonie. Fingers crossed there will be some good ideas that can help those living in isolation.
@Niki119 thanks for letting us know, new link added.
Are you struggle to find fun things for your kids, want to entertain and at the same time teach them? Yes, well my weekly column “SFK” (Science and Fun for Kids) at DesignSpark will help to explore science.
People are creating great projects during the lockdown, but is this the one we have waiting for? Being in control of your own chocolate is surely every chocolate lovers dream. Watch Harrison create his new unique chocolate munching launcher system.
This period of lockdown has allowed me to explore, literally. Using one of the many mapping websites, it is easy to explore the history of space exploration! Let's take a look at what can be seen.
Never before has it been easier to empathise with members of our vulnerable communities and relate to what it actually means to live in isolation.
After noticing that my neighbours had resorted to pots and pans for the weekly #ClapForCarers, I decided to engineer a homemade air horn to show my appreciation for the NHS and key workers each week.
Are you locked up in Quarantine with your kids? Want to entertain and at the same time teach them? Here is help for you: My weekly column “SFK” (Science and Fun for Kids) at DesignSpark. I will give you instructions for little tinker projects.
Oxygen content in the blood measured by pulse oximeter can be vital for detecting the early stages of respiratory infections. This article features the components that Maxim Integrated provides to support the design of pulse oximeters.
With the global COVID-19 coronavirus situation presenting unprecedented challenges across nearly every industry and many of you playing critical parts in keeping healthcare systems and economies around the world operating, I want to update you...
An RS Components customer has allowed us to share with you their real-world bill-of-materials for a new pulse oximeter design. In this article, Sam discusses the fundamental design decisions and selected components.
Pulse oximetry is often applied as a non-invasive testing method for monitoring oxygen saturation level in the arterial blood. Together with ON Semiconductor, we will highlight the key features of their pulse oximeter design solution.
People counter project: BARTH® Elektronik and RS Components join forces to meet the challenges posed by Covid-19
In this article, we present a pulse oximeter design solution from Microchip. This is a good starting point for those who are interested in building a prototype for their first medical device.
