Last May, researchers at ICD Stuttgart revealed the Elytra Filament Pavilion—a vast, carbon fiber structure woven with the industrial arm of a modified Kuka robot. Now, in a thesis project led by Maria Yablonina, the same lab has managed to shrink the scale, from massive industrial-line robots, to a pair of drones that can crawl up your wall […]

A new transportation system that could take commuters around Moscow at speeds of up to 1,200kph is in the works. Deputy Mayor Maxim Liksutov says a pilot Hyperloop project could begin in December.
MIT researchers have invented a radical pixel-mapping printing technique by bypassing computer-aided design (CAD) software. They have quickly and efficiently modeled and printed thousands of hair-like structures.
It’s possible that some people might own a car in a new neighborhood designed for Mannheim, Germany. But they won’t be able to drive up to their doors: The entire neighborhood is car-free, with parking hidden underground.
After 17 years of construction, the Gotthard Base Tunnel has opened. It’s a 35-mile high-speed rail connection beneath the Swiss Alps and is now the longest transit tunnel in the world. You better believe that Hyperloop engineers are paying attention.
If you’ve ever imagined yourself driving a monster truck over rush hour traffic, there might be a real job for you some day as a straddle bus driver.
3D printing technology will revolutionize architecture in the near-future and allow designers to literally click-and-print complex buildings at a lower cost and faster speed than traditional construction methods allow. Another step forward in the field comes via Dubai, where what’s hailed as the world’s first 3D-printed office was recently completed.
The Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey, will have a special guest taking selfies and playing “Simon Says” with visitors, courtesy of the Hoboken-based Stevens Institute of Technology. The LSC recently approached the school about 3D printing an interactive and educational robot for a new exhibition. Together, they settled on 3D printing the open sourced InMoov robot […]
There will soon be a personal craft that can take off and land vertically. It will be electric and seat two people, and is the starting point for what is hoped will be a generation of environmentally friendly and quiet planes. CEO Daniel Wiegand is wanting the plane to be suitable for daily use as an airport […]
With the major advances in 3D printing technology, companies are looking to take it past the bounds of earth and start 3D printing in space. Opportunities like asteroid mining, cheaper repair parts for orbiting equipment, and even building extraterrestrial bases are becoming increasingly likely.
