A cool idea – A built-in wall vacuum

Part of a future project !

Fumes in ABS 3D printing is real

Seriously. I am going to have to set print jobs after hours. This thing is definitely different to PLA.

The project that I am printing for is a dashboard camera called vEye.

A useless machine….

Cassie – Next Gen bipedal robotics…

Since then, robots have fascinated the minds of sci-fi writers and engineers alike. Which brings us to Cassie – the next generation of bipedal robots devised by Oregon State University’s Agility Robotics. Cassie originates from its predecessor ATRIAS. The problem that researchers kept stumbling over when developing ATRIAS was that it contained motors which worked against each other. As a result, this left the robot in being completely inefficient. Cassie, on the other hand, contains steering, feet, and a sealed system, allowing it be both agile and robust.

3D-Printed Embedded Electronics Make this Drone Ready to Fly Straight out of the Printer

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, have created a 3D-printed drone that is almost completely flight-ready straight out of the 3D printer by using printed embedded electronics.

Acoustic Tractor Beam

Tractor Beams are mysterious waves that can attract particles towards the source. Here, we will show you how to build an Acoustic Tractor Beam with components that can be bought directly on the Internet for less than 75$.

With this Instructable you will be able to get in your hands a device that it was only seen on SciFi movies such as Star Wars or Star Trek.
