from a smartphone case to a large insulation panel, a range of applications can be produced from the 'waste' material. The post studio thomas vailly and atelier luma transform sunflowers into biodegradable material appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
In use since at least the 4th century AD, dichroic glass displays different colors depending on how it's being viewed. Now, Dutch scientists have produced the effect in a material that can be used to create 3D-printed objects – and it's not just a novelty, as it could have practical applications...

Thanks to a new recycling process, you may one day see the same aerospace-grade composites used in airplane construction in your motor car and laptop. On Monday, Boeing announced a new partnership with British-based ELG Carbon Fibre to recycle carbon composites left over from production at 11 Boeing manufacturing sites. The move will reduce solid waste by one million pounds (453,000 kg) pe
There are a variety of situations that may call for the implantation of electrodes in the brain, ranging from the treatment of neurological conditions to possibly even restoring the function of paralyzed limbs. A newly-developed hydrogel could someday replace such electrodes, allowing for better functionality...
