New state of matter found in crystal made from buckyballs

A new type of metallic state of matter has been discovered by an international team of researchers studying a superconductor made from carbon-60 molecules or "buckyballs". The team found the new state after changing the distance between neighbouring buckyballs by doping the material with…

Printing photorealistic images on 3D objects

Hydrographic Printing is a technique of transferring colored inks on a film to the surface of an object. The film is placed on water and activated with a chemical that allows it to adhere to an object being physically pushed onto it. Researchers at Zhejiang University and Columbia University have taken…

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino

We are often asked on discussion boards, about conflicts between IRremote or IRLib and other Arduino Libraries. In this post, we present a sketch for ‘Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino’. This is the first part in a 3 part series of posts. Part 1 shows how to generate the simple Infrared carrier frequency on Arduino, using any available IO pin and without conflicting with other libraries. Part 2 will show how to send a RAW infrared signal using this approach and…

3D Printing and Ultrasound Help Blind Pregnant Moms Touch Their Unborn Babies

Here’s a pair of wonderful stories that were made possible with the help of 3D printing. As part of its new ad campaign in Brazil, diaper brand Huggies helped two blind expectant mothers “see” their unborn children by printing 3D models of the babies based on their ultrasound scans:

Get a box of tissues and meet Tatiana……

Researchers create tiny software keyboard the size of a penny, claim it’s not terrible

Now that the Apple Watch is available, smartwatches are suddenly of interest to the general populace. Ignoring for a moment that Apple is far from first to this product category, everyone seems to have agreed that software keyboards simply don’t make sense on a 1.5-inch screen. Some researchers…

DIY soldering robot

The robot looks similar to many 3D printer designs we’ve seen in the past, with several adjustments. The PCBs get mounted to a flat piece of aluminum dubbed the “PCB caddy”. The PCBs are mounted with custom-made pins that thread into the caddy. Once the PCBs are in place, they are clamped down with another small piece of aluminum. A computer slowly…

Quadmovr drone is so fast it makes other drones look like they’re standing still

Most of the quadrotor drone aircraft you’ve seen in person or on video have sacrificed speed for agility. That makes sense for a product you’re going to sell to people who aren’t experienced RC pilots. For the serious hobbyist, there’s always the DIY community. With the right parts, you can build…

Your body is your PIN code with Bodyprint

[Christian Holz, Senaka Buthpitiya, and Marius Knaust] are researchers at Yahoo that have created a biometric solution for those unlucky folks that always forget their smartphone PIN codes. Bodyprint is an authentication system that allows a variety of body parts to act as the password. These range from ears to fists.

Bodyprint uses the…

This Tiny Robot Can Pull Weights 2,000 Times Heavier Than It

Scientists from Stanford have developed a series of super-small, super strong robots-including this one, that can haul up to 52 pounds, despite weighing less than half an ounce. That's like you pulling a blue whale.…

Virtual Reality Can Fool People Into Feeling Invisible

Virtual reality messes with your brain-and it gets especially weird when neuroscientists use it to scramble your illusion of self. A new VR study uses a few simple tricks, like a paintbrush, to fool the brain into …

Mini wood lathe made of wood

When someone says ‘wood lathe’ the average person would think of a lathe used for turning pieces of wood into ornate shapes. But what if that lathe was also made of wood. Would that be a wood wood lathe? Instead of wondering the answer to that very unimportant question, young 15 year-old [laffinm] decided to actually build a wood wood lathe from…

Scientists Create Clock that Won’t Lose or Gain a Second for 15 Billion Years

A team of scientists from National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Colorado in Boulder have created a new type of atomic clock that makes the clock currently considered the gold standard for timekeeping look highly inaccurate. The new clock is an optical lattice…

This box can literally transmit human emotions over-the-air



Dr. Marianna Obrist and the University of Sussex team researching this technology refer to their creation as Ultrahaptics. To receive a transmission, a user simply places his or her hand a few inches above a grid in the middle of the rather plain-looking white box you see above. Bursts of air shot through the grid stimulate different areas of the palm…

This Is NASA's First 3D-Printed Full-Scale Copper Rocket Engine Part

It may look like some kind of ancient urn, but you're looking at something rather more advanced. In fact this is the first full-scale copper rocket engine part made by NASA using 3D printing techniques.

The component is a combustion chamber liner-a part that operates at extreme temperatures…
