3D Printed Synthetic Muscles Allow For Robotics With Realistic Dexterity
Shares 0The engineers team at Columbia University has managed to create asynthetic muscle that can operate without actuators, compressed air, or pressure regulators. While most robotics require lots of smaller parts and ancillary equipment to function, this one operates on its own. The components of the hand itself are actually softer than any previous iteration of such a project.

Every 3D Polyhedron Youd Ever Want to 3D Print
Stella, a Polyhedron Navigator provides a way to very quickly generate almost any type of polyhedron. Whats a polyhedron? While you may bump into them in real life constantly, its a geometric concept that encompasses a broad set of possible objects. Wikipedia defines them as: In geometry, a polyhedron (plural polyhedra or polyhedrons) is a solid in three dimensions with flat polygonal faces, straight edges and sharp corners or vertices.

Sep 19, 2017 | By David As 3D printing becomes more and more accessible to people outside the manufacturing, science, and technology sectors, were starting to see its potential realized in all sorts of interesting ways. The combination of 3D printing and fashion, for example, may not seem like the most natural fit, but it is starting to become an everyday reality all over the world. In New Zealand, a recent exhibition at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) demonstrated what is now possible at the intersection between digital manufacturing and fashion design.

How do I get started building a bot? What tool do you recommend? These are two of the most common questions we get, and for a long time, we didnt have a solid answer. What Quartz has built until now has been completely custom, which is both a great luxury, and also hands-down the most obnoxious answer we could offer to those questions. So heres our attempt at a better answer: We spent the past couple of months testing dozens of bot-building tools.

Digital Ocean today announced Spaces, its object storage service. This complements the companys block storage service. Both of these services have different use cases, of course; unlike the block storage service, Spaces as an object store can scale up far beyond the 16TB limit of the block storage service because its not volume-based and not about connecting storage to a virtual machine.

Thingiverse constributor Aad van der Geest has proposed - and prototyped - a 3D printer add-on for continuous 3D printing. Continuous 3D printing is a goal for many, as it would provide a way to transform an otherwise single-print 3D printer into a kind of factory that can pump out larger quantities of objects while unattended. I had a wonderful, but temporary, experience with MakerBots very early continuous build platform, which offered a kind of conveyor belt systems that rolled prints right off the bed when finished.

Neural networks powers of prediction have fueled the recent AI boom, but it can be hard to explain how they reach their decisions. A new technique aimed at uncovering the inner workings of language processing networks is just the latest effort to shed some light on these black boxes. Its probably not surprising that we find neural networks so inscrutable, seeing as they are broadly based on the human brain, which were also struggling to decipher.
