5 Insane Ideas That Will Change the World

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, blockchains, mobile phones, robotics/AI

The world has experienced a technological leap in the last decade. Innovations such as smartphones and tablets, 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and blockchain are coming with us. As is well known, these technologies have become indispensable, not only causing hype in one or the other but also permanently changing our daily lives and ways of working. Will this development slow down? I do not think so, the exact opposite. In the next 10 years, you can expect even more breakthroughs than you can imagine today.

Manufacturers could save time and money with the help of new research led by the Clemson Composites Center

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, economics, engineering

The Clemson Composites Center is developing new ways of 3D-printing low-cost manufacturing tools and is funding the research with $5.16 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office and industry partners. Collaborators on the project include Honda Development & Manufacturing of America, Ohio State University and Additive Engineering Solutions, LLC.


The Clemson Composites Center is leading a new study that could help manufacturers save time and money while reducing their environmental impact– a project that adds to the center’s fast-growing portfolio of industry-guided automotive and advanced manufacturing research.

Researchers developed 3D-printed living soil walls that can support plant growth

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats

They created a cylindrical prototype resembling a Chia pet.

We can observe how far the architecture has progressed with the developing technology today. Referring to this, we have even seen houses made with 3D printing technology.

Now, a group of scientists from the University of Virginia is raising the bars of 3D printing technology by producing 3D-print soil structures which can grow plants on their surfaces.

3D-printed, laser-cooked meat may be the future of cooking

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biological, robotics/AI

A future kitchen appliance could make it possible to 3D-print entirely new recipes and cook them with lasers.

That is the long-term vision at Columbia University’s Creative Machines Lab, an engineering group that uses insight from biology to research and develop autonomous systems that “create and are creative.” The engineers have spent years working to digitize and automate the cooking process.

New process converts old PLA plastic into a better 3D-printing resin

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, chemistry, sustainability

Although plant-based polylactic acid (PLA) bioplastic is acclaimed for its biodegradability, it can take quite a long time to degrade if the conditions aren’t quite right. Bearing this fact in mind, Washington State University scientists have devised a way of upcycling it into a 3D-printing resin.

“[PLA] is biodegradable and compostable, but once you look into it, it turns out that it can take up to 100 years for it to decompose in a landfill,” said postdoctoral researcher Yu-Chung Chang, co-corresponding author of the study. “In reality, it still creates a lot of pollution. We want to make sure that when we do start producing PLA on the million-tons scale, we will know how to deal with it.”

To that end, Chang and colleagues developed a process in which an inexpensive chemical known as aminoethanol is used to break down the long chains of molecules that make up PLA. Those chains are rendered into simple monomers, which are the basic building blocks of plastic. The process takes about two days, and can be carried out at mild temperatures.
