Comments Off on This is the first object 3D printed from asteroid dust

3D printing technology has made several leaps and bounds within the last few years, especially in regards to the materials that can be used to create different objects. These days, even  coffee grounds and beer can be recycled into art. Planetary Resources and their partner, 3D Systems , have just blown the competition out of the water for the most innovative material ever used: asteroid dust . The “asteroid-mining” company says this step is just the beginning for humans utilizing raw materials from outer space. Read the rest of This is the first object 3D printed from asteroid dust

Cleveland Clinic photo from Shutterstock When it comes to architecture, it doesn’t get bigger than Frank Gehry – the man is world-renowned, and his buildings are as famous as he is. What he may not be, however, is a brilliant political mind. In a recent interview with Foreign Policy , Gehry weighed in on the merits of having a dictator over a democracy – the latter of which causes far too many ugly buildings.

Comments Off on Walgreens Announces Plans to Build the First Zero Energy Retail Store in the US

Walgreens just announced plans to build what the company believes will be the nation’s first net zero energy retail store – complete with solar panels , wind turbines, geothermal technology, energy-efficient building materials, LED lighting and ultra-high-efficiency refrigeration. The store will be located in Evanston, Ill., at the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Keeney Street, where demolition of an existing Walgreens store now is under way. Engineering estimates — which can vary due to factors such as weather, store operations and systems performance — indicate that the store will use 200,000 kilowatt hours per year of electricity while generating 256,000 kilowatt hours per year.

Comments Off on UK Engineers Create World’s First Working 3D Printed Electronic Devices

Researchers at the University of Warwick’s School of Engineering have discovered a way to manufacture working electronic devices using 3D printers . To date, the electronic inner workings of products have been manufactured separately from their outer plastic shells, but with the use of a new carbon-rich material called Carbomorph, researchers were able to 3d print working electronic devices including a computer game controller, a motion-sensing glove, and a smart mug that knows how full it is.
