A gamut of international robots will compete tomorrow, testing their abilities across a rubble-stricken course.
From 5-6 June, 25 teams will will be in competition for $3.5 million’s (£2.3 million) worth of prizes at the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC).
Following the Fukushima disaster in Japan in 2011, the US Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) set up the DRC as a way to encourage the development of disaster-relief technology. Now in its third year, the competition in Pomona, California, is set to push search-and-rescue robots to their limits.
New 3D printing technology is being used to make clothes.
Unlike “traditional” 3D printing, the Electroloom doesn’t construct clothes from the ground up.
After placing a CAD-designed mould in the Electroloom system, the 3D printer will create your new outfit using Field Guided Fabrication, or FGF. A fancy name for spraying spirals of liquid, the method guides the cotton, solvent and polymer mixtures used by the Electroloom with an electric field, converting the liquids into solid threads.
The Drone Aviary - an R&D project from The Superflux Lab - is an investigation of the social, political and cultural potential of drone technology as it enters civil space. Through a series of ongoing installations, films and publications, the project aims to give a glimpse into a near-future city co-habit with ‘intelligent’ semi autonomous, networked, flying machines.
Suppose we made a section of road out of this material and housed solar cells to collect energy, which could pay for the cost of the panel, thereby creating a road that would pay for itself over time. What if we added LEDs to "paint" the road lines from beneath, lighting up the road for safer night time driving? What if we added a heating element in the surface (like the defrosting wire in the rear window of our cars) to prevent snow/ice accumulation in northern climates? The ideas and possibilities just continued to roll in and the Solar Roadway project was born.
