Before Wasps Enslaved Caterpillars, They Enslaved a Virus

Before Wasps Enslaved Caterpillars, They Enslaved a Virus | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Every day we get more proof that wasps are the most terrifying creatures on the planet. Not only do they mind-control caterpillars and inject them with their wasp babies, they also managed to enslave a virus to do their dirty work for them.

Researchers create materials that reproduce cephalopods' ability to quickly change colors and textures | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Cephalopods, which include octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish, are among nature's most skillful camouflage artists, able to change both the color and texture of their skin within seconds to blend into their surroundings—a capability that engineers have long struggled to duplicate in synthetic materials. ...

Ceramics don't have to be brittle: Materials scientists are creating materials by design

Ceramics don't have to be brittle: Materials scientists are creating materials by design | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
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 | DigitAG& journal | 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.

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

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.

How nanotech is changing your world

How nanotech is changing your world | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
The American engineer Eric Drexler, who coined the term nanotechnology in the 1980s, is not afraid of ambitious thinking. In his 2013 book Radical Abundance: How a Revolution in Nanotechnology Will Change Civilization, Drexler imagines a 3D printer-like “factory in a box”, which could manipulate atoms precisely enough to manufacture almost anything. We may still […]
