Cornell University engineers have developed a method to re-create the arrangement of muscles of an octopus tentacle, using an elastomer and 3D printer.
In January this year Microsoft announced the HoloLens, a technology based on virtual and augmented reality (AR).
How fast is online learning evolving? Are wind turbines a promising investment? And how long before a cheap hoverboard makes it to market?
3D printing will revolutionize war and foreign policy, say experts, not only by making possible incredible new designs but by turning the defence industry—and possibly the entire global economy—on its head.
(Phys.org) —As part of a project demonstrating new 3-D printing techniques, Princeton researchers have embedded tiny light-emitting diodes into a standard contact lens, allowing the device to project beams of colored light.
3D-printing microscopic fish: Team demonstrates novel method to build robots with complex shapes, functionalities
Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego used an innovative 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots—called microfish—that swim around efficiently in liquids, ...
