vadim kravets's insight:

A group of 3D printed houses, 200 meters squared each was seen in Shanghai China. They were created out of cement using giant 3D printers. Each house costs $4,800. The company behind this is WiSun Decoration Design Engineering co. They not only make the houses but also the insulation materials, plumbing, electrical lining and windows. This 3D printing also helps the environment in a big way by recycling. WiSun plans to build 100 companies to collect the waist and turn it into material for 3D printing through special processing and separation. They expect that 3D printing will save construction companies up to 50% on the cost.

vadim kravets's insight:

A study of young aged 12 to 25 suggest that almost one third which is about 32% see engineering as a potential career. Still a lot of people remain confused about the profession. Over a third of the people think that it has something to do with physical labor. About 87& think it is related to the car industry. Also, 93% of teachers want closer links with industries to help their students learn practical skills and knowledge. They want young people to be taught more engineering skills in schools.

vadim kravets's insight:

Duke biomedical engineers have engineered lab grown muscle that acts like the real one. They implanted the tissue into mice and found that the muscle contraction strength was 10 times higher than anyone previously recorded. To test the healing capabilities, they injected the tissue along with a toxin from snake venom into the mice. The satellite cells regenerated the fibers over 10 days and healed themselves. After this experiment, they are looking to perform the same on humans but it will take time. This synthetic tissue could be critical in treating injuries and faster recovery.

These robots want to make laborious tasks easier in the factories of the future.
vadim kravets's insight:

The german engineering company Festo is creating a robot army. They don't want to the destroy the world but instead want to make it a better place. A place where they can eliminate labor in the factories. They are using nature to help. Festo wants to use thing such as "gripping, moving, controlling and measuring" as their motivation. Nature performs all theses things effectively and naturally. Some things include the Elephant-inspired handling assistant, bionic dragonfly, air jellyfish, bionic penguin and so on.

'Herding' cells with direct electric current may aid in tissue engineering

'Herding' cells with direct electric current may aid in tissue engineering | Electrical Engineering | Scoop.it
The human body is littered with free ions and salts, which goes to explain why so much of our physiology is controlled by electrical signals, from neural p.
vadim kravets's insight:

The human body has ions and salts floating around which is why our physiology is controlled by electrical signals. Scientists learned a new technique where they "herded" the cells to move along the direct current electric field. Epithelial cells are those  cells that line the cavities in the body  and also cover flat surfaces. This process works just like a "smart bandage" which could accelerate healing.

vadim kravets's insight:

Electrical engineering played a vital role in today's 21st century society. It all started with the invention of the telegraph in the 1830's. Then voice transmissions and wireless broadcasts appeared in the late 1800's. Currently, technology lets people communicate over long distances and 20% of the people in the U.S. own an iPhone which is expected to rise to 42% by 2017. The first working battery was invented in 1799 and now we have the Tesla Model S electric car that has an efficiency rating of 88% versus 20-25% in normal cars. Mechatronics appeared in 1969 which later introduced 3D printers and prosthesis.
