Explain 3D: Understand how things work

Do you remember books like “The Way Things Work“ or “How things work”? These books were best sellers and helped a lot of kids and people understand how things work. Some reviews of these books were: “This book taught me more about technology than my first five years of school…”. There were millions of copies of these books sold. Now, Explain 3D is the future of learning how things work. Explain 3D is a system of interactive educational simulations that can help you to understand how things work. Simulations are built in an interactive 3D environment, which brings fun to learning, […]

Moley Robotics to launch robotic chef in 2017

We’ve got some great news for those who really enjoy a good meal, but not so much actually cooking it. The British company Moley Robotics announced this week that it would launch the first robotic chef in the world. The robot can play revenue and also create new meals worthy of renowned restaurants. A London company launched a chef robot for the domestic world. The prototype was recently presented at the Hannover Messe industrial fair in Hanover, Germany, and impressed by the almost human form as prepared a meal, following indications of a real chef. The robot should just hit the market within […]

Build a house with water? This guy did

Matyas Gutai is a Hungarian architect who’s big on using water in the construction of a house. We’re not talking water fountains for therapeutic reasons but actual liquid engineering. He’s pretty keen on embedding water into the build for its thermal properties and ability to maintain a comfortable temperature. The idea behind building a house with water is to still use traditional building materials such as cement, bricks and plaster, but to incorporate water between sheets of steel or glass. That way the water is responsible for maintaining the house’s thermal condition which is said to do so rather comfortably. Gutai has […]

You need to see this sword fighting robot

Manika Laboratory based in Japan specialise in robotics with high-speed manipulation and vision that can both move and react quicker than humans. It all sounds well and good until you hear that they programmed one to be able to sword fight. Yeah, we imagine the team behind it hasn’t seen the Terminator movies. Check it out: There are a pair of high-speed cameras that act as the robot’s eyes, giving it stereo vision so that it can perceive depth. This means it knows the position of its opponent and can also recognise their movements (as well as knowing where its own sword […]

Airlines can pay $300,000 for one airplane seat, here is why

The race is on between airlines to find out which one can offer the fanciest and most luxurious first and business class seating on-board their airplanes. Of course if you want the best you have to be willing to pay out a high price and for the airline this can end up costing more than what you could buy a home of average size in the US with. A single seat can cost around $300,000! So what does the airline get for shelling out such a huge sum of money? [Image Courtesy of Google] It has been said that the Boeing […]

Could Gizmo 3D printer trump Carbon3D’s breakthrough

You may remember our recent feature of Carbon3D’s new ‘breakthrough’ in 3D printing that allowed them to produce finished products 25-100 times faster. Their process is referred to as ‘Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology’ and seems as though the part is being pulled out of a shallow pool of liquid material. Now, an Australian company, Gizmo 3D, have unveiled a similar technique that they claim is not only faster but also produces products of higher quality. They also use a stereolithography method, where the product is produced as a result of curing a photo-sensitive resin, but rather than the part being […]
