Chris Cahill spent two months in a coma. The 35-year-old from New Brunswick, New Jersey woke up confused. He didn’t know where he was. Or what happened to him. Cahill was found unconscious from physical trauma. Severe injuries to his frontal lobe left his brain swelling in a life-threatening situation. Dr. Gaurav Gupta brought down the […]
3D printing in space is complicated. Between the lack of gravity, lack of air, and other obstacles, getting a 3D printer to work in space is nothing short of miraculous. A startup named Made in Space is helping astronauts do just that. The company developed a method to 3D print outside of the International Space […]
Kodama, the San Francisco-based start-up and creator of the Trinus 3D printer, has designed its next-generation model and it’s attracting some much-deserved attention. Introducing Obsidian – the first 3D printer under $100 that produces high-quality professional-grade prints.
Researchers at the University of California – San Diego have tapped into the powers of 3D printing to create a soft four-legged robot that can walk over difficult terrain. Whether it’s climbing over small rocks or crawling through confined spaces, the tethered robot is “designed to capture sensor readings in dangerous environments.”
Although 3D printing has become “newest thing” in industrial manufacturing, it has yet to successfully crossover into wearable technology. So leave it to the always-innovative Adidas to find a revolutionary process called Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) to make their already-impressive Futurecraft 3D training sneaker all the more amazing. With the hopes of producing 100,000 of […]
Already being used in China to mass produce apartment complexes, 3D printing technology is changing the way people think about housing and construction. Taking up few thousand feet, Dubai – with the help of Cazza Construction – unveiled its plans to “build the world’s first 3D printed skyscraper.”
With a steady uptick in global carbon emissions and the potential for climate refugees displaced due to rising water levels, there’s a rather urgent need for alternative living arrangements. That means a new-age method of construction that can mass produce buildings compatible in non-traditional locations – like on the water, in the desert, above skyscrapers […]
