NVBOTS is making 3-D printing as simple as printing on paper

If you haven’t used a 3-D printer yet, you may be surprised to learn that it isn’t fully automated the way your office’s inkjet is. With paper printers, users queue documents from a computer, and each finished sheet drops neatly into a tray, waiting to be collected. With commercial 3-D printers, however, designs are manually … Continue reading “NVBOTS is making 3-D printing as simple as printing on paper”

3D-printing Bricks using Moondust and Sun’s Heat.

Bricks have been 3D printed out of simulated moondust using concentrated sunlight. This ESA project took place at the DLR German Aerospace Center facility, with a 3D printer table attached to a solar furnace, baking successive 0.1 mm layers of moondust at a temperature of 1000°C. A 20 x 10 x 3 cm brick for … Continue reading “3D-printing Bricks using Moondust and Sun’s Heat.”

Hands with Eyes – Hand that Sees offers new hope to amputees

A new generation of prosthetic limbs which will allow the wearer to reach for objects automatically, without thinking – just like a real hand – are to be trialled for the first time. Led by biomedical engineers at Newcastle University , the bionic hand is fitted with a camera which instantaneously takes a picture of … Continue reading “Hands with Eyes – Hand that Sees offers new hope to amputees”

MOF Water Harvester – Pulling Drinkable Water out of dry Air using the power of the sun

A solar-powered water harvester was constructed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology using a special material — a metal-organic framework, or MOF — produced at the University of California, Berkeley. This water harvester uses only ambient sunlight to pull liters of water out of the air each day in conditions as low as 20 percent … Continue reading “MOF Water Harvester – Pulling Drinkable Water out of dry Air using the power of the sun”

MucoJet – A painless way to give Vaccines. Lollipops can replace Needle Injections in Future.

According to a proof-of-concept study conducted at UC Berkeley, Patients could one day self-administer vaccines using a needleless, pill-sized technology that jet-releases a stream of vaccine inside the mouth,. The study did not test vaccine delivery in people, but demonstrated that the technology, called MucoJet, is capable of delivering vaccine-sized molecules to immune cells in … Continue reading “MucoJet – A painless way to give Vaccines.
