A couple just moved into a 3D printed concrete home for about $1,400 a month— see what it’s like to live in

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats

I have said 3D printed houses could help with the housing crisis.

“Project Milestone serves as the world’s first 3D printed concrete “commercial housing project,” according to its maker.”

But not according to ICON 3D, and the link below shows Africa’s largest 3D printing housing project in Kenya. I have been talking about 3D printed houses for years. Its good people have caught up.

20 Emerging Technologies That Will Change Our World

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

Technology has already changed our world. I mean, who knew that we’d be able to flick a switch to illuminate the darkness rather than lighting a candle? It’s wild. But the technology we have today and will have in the future is absolutely insane. From 3D printing houses to robotics to help us in our jobs, here are 20 emerging technologies that will change our world.

Texas-based 3D printing company teaming up with NASA to put buildings on the moon

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats, robotics/AI, space travel

Through a $57 million contract with NASA, ICON, a company out of Austin, is working to do just that. ICON wants to put a broad spectrum of infrastructure on the moon, which isn’t the easiest place to build.

“First of all, you need to be able to protect the astronauts from the lunar environment which is really a nasty place to live and work. Vacuumed environment, extreme temperature swings, radiation environment, micro-meteoroids, dust protection,” Clinton said. “To produce things like landing pads and roads and blast shields and shelters and habitats.”

A new approach for the 3D printing of hydrogel-based electronics

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Hydrogels are three-dimensional (3D) polymer networks that do not dissolve in water but retain large amounts of liquids. Due to this advantageous property, hydrogels are particularly promising material platforms for both biomedical and environmental applications, as they can survive in bodily fluids or in wet natural environments without dissipating.

Over the past decade, engineers and materials scientists have been developing numerous based on soft hydrogels, including environmental and biomedical sensors, drug delivery devices, and artificial tissue. Despite the huge potential of these -based devices, their widespread implementation has so far been hindered by their high production costs.

A research team led by Dr. Nanjia Zhou at Westlake University and Westlake Institute of Advanced Studies in China have recently introduced a new strategy to enable the 3D printing of soft hydrogel electronics. Their approach, introduced in a paper published in Nature Electronics, could help to lower the production costs of numerous hydrogel-based devices, including strain sensors, inductors, and biological electrodes.

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

It can also rotate 220 degrees and lift up to 26.5 ounces of weight.

Supernova, a South Korean startup, has designed HUENIT, a robotic arm to help people with various household chores and creative tasks. Supernova showcased its AI Camera and Robot Arm at CES 2023. The company has been developing innovative robots to help people with everyday tasks.

Although many innovative technologies were showcased at the CES 2023, the Huenit Robot Arm captured the attention of visitors. HUENIT is an easy-to-use AI-based multi-functional robotic arm that combines advanced AI technologies with a modular arm to work on complex tasks with high precision. The robot can do everything from making coffee to 3D printing a prototype.

A biomechanical engineer combines 3D printing and laser-cutting technology to make prosthetic hands

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, cyborgs

A company has donated 350 of Smit’s, the biomechanical engineer behind the design, 3D-printed prosthetic hands to war victims in Ukraine.

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) researchers designed laser-cutting 3D-printed prosthetic hands for Ukranian war victims. Thanks to laser-cutting technology, war victims get their prosthetic limbs more easily. These prosthetic hands are in use in India, and Indian company Vispala donated 350 of Smit’s 3D-printed prosthetic hands to war victims in Ukraine, according to the TU Delft.
