Siemens' latest MRI machine (Magnetom Prisma Tim+Dot System 3 Tesla) is one of the most powerful, state of the art medical imaging devices in the marketplace. The first Magnetom Prisma 3-tesla MRI units was installed in the USA at the University of Minnesota a year ago. Now there are about 50 units in Europe, and a few days ago I had a chance to visit one at the Research Centre for Natural Sciences of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
With its new Freshness Center refrigerator, Siemens wants you to get rid of that freezer bag sealing contraption on your counter. In addition to the standard fridge and freezer compartments, the KG38QAL30 has a third drawer with a section that vacuum seals itself, preserving fresh foods like vegetables and meats up to five times longer.
The first commercial offshore wind turbine that Siemens created 30 years ago had 5m long blades and produced a paltry 30kW. A lot can change over three decades. The company's newest offshore model isn't just the biggest in the sea; it's the biggest anywhere.
They might be the future of cooking, but for some reason induction cooktops limit where you can place your pots, like the burners on a traditional stove. Siemens is breaking free of those constraints with a new design that boasts an all-encompassing cooking surface.
As nuclear power continues to fall out of favour, California is making big investments in alternative energy sources to meet rising demand. One of its most ambitious projects will use the Mojave sun to power over a quarter million homes.
The role of the internet in Iran's recent unrest has been stunning; so too have been the regime's efforts to minimise it. Luckily for the government, Iran's networks are rigged for suppression, courtesy of Nokia and Siemens.

Sounds a bit crazy, but it's extremely convenient to put your suckling pig stuffed with chicken wings, then easily paint it with BBQ honey sauce until it's done.
A trio of girls has scooped the honors in Siemens' Math, Science and Technology Prize, the first time in the competition's nine-year history. According to James Whaley, President of the Siemens Foundation, the percentage of girls taking part in the competition has been steadily increasing each year -- and this year, 48% of the contestants were female. So, does this double victory dispel the theory that women just don't have it when it comes to excelling at sciences?
