Junior Veloso (Singapore) has created a homemade photopolymer-based 3D Printer with a custom software to control the process. Since its beginning on September 2010, he has seriously improved things. According to Hack-a-day, “the improvement he achieved were due to multiple changes in the process. He tweaked the software to use a more precise curing time, the resin formula has been improved, the ability to isolate pixels without...Read More
The Bionic Handling Assistant from Festo is an adaptable assistance system that allows man and machine to interact effectively as a team and without risk. It was inspired by the nature of the elephant’s trunk. Festo is well known for its nature-inspired projects (aka Biomimicry) like Air Ray, AirJelly, Smartbird etc. They observe nature then use what they have learned to create a mechanical structure and incorporate that into the...Read More
