Small Robots Printing Large-scale Buildings

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.

Human-powered helicopter successful flight

See successful flight of a human-powered helicopter

A human-powered helicopter (HPH) is a helicopter powered solely by one or more persons carried on board. As in other human-powered aircraft, the power is usually generated by pedalling. It remains a considerable engineering challenge to obtain both the power-to-weight ratio and rotor efficiency required to sustain a helicopter in flight.

Pedal powered vehicle: filters and stores water

 Pedal powered vehicle: filters and stores water

The Aquaduct is pedal powered vehicle that transports, filters, and stores water for the developing world. A peristaltic pump attached to the pedal crank draws water from a large tank, through a filter, to a smaller clean tank.

Team Aquaduct was declared as the winner of the first “Innovate or Die” Pedal-Powered Machine Challenge that took place earlier this month - See more at: http://thefutureofthings.com/5833-aquaduct-pedal-water-filter/#sthash.XL9i4iaQ.dpuf
