For the first time, German company Core Technologie GmbH has put its 3D printing software to work in creating an everyday product. The result is a single-speed bicycle that ranks among the lightest out there, barely pushing the scale needle past the minimum weight of a Tour de France bike. Core also stresses that the bike is the result of a simpler, automation-friendly modular construction proces
A novel 3D-printing process has opened up a new class of strong, ductile, tuneable titanium alloys that could potentially be made from waste products, without expensive additives like vanadium. It may also work for zirconium, niobium and molybdenum.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: RMIT, Titanium, 3D Printing
Work was recently completed on what's being hailed as the largest mass timber building in Asia. Designed by Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito & Associates, the project features impressive green design, including solar panels that produce more electricity than it needs.Continue ReadingCategory: Architecture, LifestyleTags: Building and Construction, Timber, sustainable design, Singapore, NTU
the new business-class cabin includes 4K screens, wireless charging, noise-canceling headphones, and bluetooth connectivity. The post pearson lloyd and lufthansa wall in flyers in multifaceted, tech-driven ‘allegris’ business class appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Many ebikes on the road today are built to look and ride just like their traditional counterparts. But there are makers like Super73, Juiced and Vintage that aim for a retro-cool moto vibe. Until now, San Diego's Ride1Up has had both feet firmly planted in the former camp, but that's changed with the Revv 1.Continue ReadingCategory: Bicycles, TransportTags: ebikes, Pedal-assisted
Researchers studying new methods for improving blood sugar control in type 2 diabetes have discovered an old class of antipsychotic drugs may offer clues to a novel kind of treatment for hyperglycemia. While the researchers propose the old drugs could be directly repurposed to treat diabetes, they could also be slightly modified to more specifically target blood sugar control.Continue ReadingCate
In what they hail as a “new frontier in materials,” engineers at Northeastern University have developed a new type of ceramic that can be fashioned into thin and complex shapes, opening up expansive new applications in electronics. Described as thermoformable ceramics, the novel materials came about through a laboratory accident, but could serve as more efficient and durable heat sinks, among oth
Scientists have identified two molecules that could help treat leukemia, in a way that’s far less damaging to healthy cells than existing chemotherapy. The compounds work using a different mechanism that’s more selective for cancerous cells, and importantly, they’re already in use for other purposes.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Leukemia, Cancer, Enzyme, Drug, Drugs, University

As mysterious as fast radio bursts (FRBs) are, they’re now so common that they’re at risk of becoming mundane. But a newly discovered signal deepens the mystery with a few oddities – it hails from an unexpected region of space, and its pulses are about a million times shorter than most, which could indicate many others like it are going undetected.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: Ast is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
