This paper describes a device capable of throwing aluminum rings in a range of a few meters. The device is a modification of the jumping-ring design invented by the American engineer and inventor E. Thomson to demonstrate his pioneering research in alternating current. We improved the magnetic circuit of this device and created a new induction coilgun based on E-shaped design. We experimented with this new design under laboratory conditions and simulated its behavior using an interactive software package. Finally, we concluded that this device is able to achieve a higher speed than the Thomson design with lesser power consumption. © 2010 IEEE. Source

Serious Games (SGs) are increasingly being used in formal educational settings and it is almost universally acknowledged that they have strong potential for bringing innovation to education and for enhancing learning, this way also contributing to the development of Human Capital. This paper proposes some reflections on the usefulness and effectiveness of SGs when used in formal learning contexts. The considerations are derived from a set of SG-based educational experiences carried out in three European countries: Italy, Spain and Romania. The paper briefly summarizes the key aspects of the three research experiences and, by referring to the main lessons learnt, it also draws some general conclusions as to the potential of SGs to support the development of Human Capital both from the cognitive and from the affective/behavioural standpoint. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
