Alessio Erioli's insight:

Talk about tooling and biological machines: this adult weaver in Australia holds a silk-producing larva in its jaws, spreading the larva’s sticky secretions to bind leaves for the colony nest.

A Robotic 3D Printer Could Print Anything, Anywhere It Wants

A Robotic 3D Printer Could Print Anything, Anywhere It Wants | a3 _ research | Scoop.it
3D printers are far from a perfect technology at this point, but one of their most glaring issues is that their printing capacity is limited to the size of the machines. The print head on a 3D printer can only travel so far, which is why moving it onto a wheeled platform that's completely mobile is a brilliant idea, and could be quite a leap for the technology.

Imagine a balloon that could float without using any lighter-than-air gas. Instead, it could simply have all of its air sucked out while maintaining its filled shape. Such a vacuum balloon, which could help ease the world's current shortage of helium, can only be made if a new material existed that ...

PORTFOLIO | Clay Robotics

PORTFOLIO | Clay Robotics | a3 _ research | Scoop.it

Clay Robotics is an ongoing project developed by Jiashuang Sun, Kelvin Ho, and Sihan Wang at the The Bartlett, University College London.  The project team is led by studio tutors Philippe Morel, Thibault Schwartz and Guan Lee as part of MArch Graduate Architecture Design, Research Cluster 5.

The proposed fabrication system hybridizes existing concrete casting techniques with additive manufacturing processes through the use of six-axis industrial robotic arms.  The objective of this research is to develop a viable large-scale casting technique that is potentially more sustainable, and efficient than traditional construction.
