Electronic Media (Martindale’s Reference Desk)


electronic : of, relating to, or utilizing devices constructed or working by the methods or principles of electronics — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary


Roget’s II (Thesaurus.com), Merriam-Webster Thesaurus, Visuwords


Electronics is the science of controlling electrical energy electrically, in which the electrons have a fundamental role. Electronics deals with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes, integrated circuits, associated passive electrical components, and interconnection technologies. Commonly, electronic devices contain circuitry consisting primarily or exclusively of active semiconductors supplemented with passive elements; such a circuit is described as an electronic circuit. — Wikipedia

David Darling’s Internet Encyclopedia of Science, Encyclopædia Britannica

Electronic media are media that use electronics or electromechanical energy for the end-user (audience) to access the content. This is in contrast to static media (mainly print media), which today are most often created electronically, but don’t require electronics to be accessed by the end-user in the printed form. The primary electronic media sources familiar to the general public are better known as video recordings, audio recordings, multimedia presentations, slide presentations, CD-ROM and online content. Most new media are in the form of digital media. However, electronic media may be in either analog or digital format. Although the term is usually associated with content recorded on a storage medium, recordings are not required for live broadcasting and online networking. Any equipment used in the electronic communication process (e.g. television, radio, telephone, desktop computer, game console, handheld device) may also be considered electronic media. — Wikipedia

  • MIT teaches robot arms a new gripping trick
    by Steve Bush on October 18, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    MIT has found a way for robot arms to change the point at which they grip an object by gripping loosely, and letting it slide as it is pushed against a wall or other solid object. The challenge is not trivial, as that object can not only be pushed straight against the surface, but can ...
