MIT engineers have developed a desktop 3D printer that performs ten times faster than existing commercial counterparts. the most common printers may fabricate a few LEGO-sized bricks in one hour, whereas the new design can print similarly sized objects in just a few minutes. the key to the team’s nimble design lies in the printer’s compact […]The post MIT fast 3D printer is ten times faster
harvard researchers and MIT have developed origami-inspired robot muscles with spectacular capabilities and in some cases costing less than a dollar to create.The post origami robot muscles can lift 1,000 times their body weight appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Photo by HaxorjoeThe New York Times and its photography director Michele McNally have been hit with a lawsuit by former Times' photographer Robert Stolarik. The lawsuit claims that Stolarik, age 48, was discriminated against due to his age, and was also misclassified as a 'full-time freelancer' for nearly a decade. According to the complaint—which was filed on July 6th in New York and covered at
When Canon introduced its G1 X in 2012, it boasted that the camera was top of the food chain for image quality in the kingdom of compact point-and-shoots. The second generation that followed in 2014 seemed a rather modest upgrade, but the third and latest model is clearly designed to impress. The flagship PowerShot G1 X Mark III is the first of the company's point-and-shoot cameras to be trea
the 3D printed muscle has a strain density (expansion per gram) that is 15 times larger than natural muscle, and can lift 1000 times its own weight.The post 3D printed synthetic muscle is up to three times stronger than human tissue appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
The classic image of a robot is one clad in a rigid metal shell, but that's not going to be practical in situations where man and machine will need to work together. The emerging field of soft robotics is helping to make that collaboration safer, but recreating muscle is no easy task. Now, mechanical engineers from Columbia University have developed a synthetic soft muscle that's much more si

It can be 10 times stronger than steel, is light and superconductive, and is being used to revolutionize everything from lightbulbs to the internet. In the latest graphene-enabled innovation, a team of MIT engineers has potentially revolutionized the process of dialysis by creating a new membrane from this wonder material that is able to filter nanometer-sized molecules from solutions up to 1 is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
