3D printing company Solid Concepts recently worked with Austin-based start-up Atlas to develop the world’s first 3D printed fitness tracker. The project represents a unique intersection of many emerging trends, including data collection, wearable technology and 3D printing. The tracker is able to identify your exercises, count reps and sets, and calculate calories burned. Solid Concepts just released a blog post this morning detailing the development of the Atlas fitness tracker – check it out here ! + Atlas Wearables + Solid Concepts Via Solid Concepts Blog The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Could a Newly Developed Magnetic Material Revolutionize Electronics?

This week at the American Physical Society meeting in Denver, engineers were introduced to a new magnetic material could revolutionize the electronics industry. Professor Ivan Schuller from the University of California, San Diego presented a highly sensitive bilayer of nickel and vanadium oxide that responds to a narrow range of temperatures. When heat is applied, the material’s magnetism can be controlled without using a magnetic field or heat-intensive layers. This is the first known material able to express such properties, and it could become a new resource for computer memory systems .
