3D printing: Amazing Innovation inspired by Terminator 2
Joseph DeSimone and the other University of North Carolina scientists who describe the technology in a new paper published today in Science call it "continuous liquid interface production."This new 3D printing technology by Carbon 3d looks like science fiction. But it's entirely real. Carbon3D has invented a new way of 3-D printing using liquid resins that harden on contact with UV light. This process is 25-100 times faster than current methods and stronger since the object is one solid shape instead of composite layers.
Amazing MIT Robotic Cheetah
MIT Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory members pose with the MIT cheetah robot in Killian Court (Learn more: http://bit.ly/1CZToFe) Now MIT researchers have developed an algorithm for bounding that they’ve successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah — a sleek, four-legged assemblage of gears, batteries, and electric motors that weighs about as much as its feline counterpart. The team recently took the robot for a test run on MIT’s Killian Court, where it bounded across the grass at a steady clip.
Amazing! Real world color picker and pen, This pen color capture time is 1 to 2 second and reproduce color very accurate drawing length is more than 30 miles
The "first man-made biological leaf" could enable humans to colonise space RCA graduate Julian Melchiorri says the synthetic biological leaf he developed, which absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant, could enable long-distance space travel.
The first robot, Foundation Robot, shuffles around the footprint of the building on caterpillar-style tracks, following a pre-defined route and using a sensor to steer itself around the shape. Like your standard 3D printer, it squirts out building material, which is made up of 50 percent marble powder and 50 percent polymer for a lightweight but strong substance, in layers.
ATLAS robot is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs about 330 pounds. The ATLAS is made out of aircraft-grade titanium and aluminum with blue LED lights mounted inside its chest. The humanoid owes its agility and balance to an onboard computer that receives information from a laser rangefinder and stereo cameras that survey and gauge the robot’s immediate surroundings.
