Pop-up robotic bee by Harvard students

Pop-up robotic bee by Harvard students | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"Students at the harvard microrobotics laboratory have developed a robotic bee known as 'monolithic bee' or 'mobee'. The insect is printed from layers of carbon-fiber and plastic. the combination allows for joints which are sturdy but bendable.
The bee folds up with one quick movement similar to a pop-up book, thus requiring no assembly. attached are titanium wings, which, when applied to an external power source, are able to move at 1 or 30 hertz.

This newly developed process of printing MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) can be applied to a large number of robotic devices, and is well suited to pass production."

Creating a Digital Art Gallery

Creating a Digital Art Gallery | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"If it’s letter/A4 sized, then on the scanner it goes – with a resolution of at least 300dpi. If it’s bigger than the scanner, then a photo will do nicely. I always use the DSLR, at it highest quality settings as you can’t get those pixels back later. Sculptures of all kinds are filmed from all angles in HD. I’ve been looking for an app similar to 360 Panorama or Photosynth that can create spinnable models, similar to the way QuickTime VR ones used to work for this, but with no luck so far. If you know of one, please share it in the comments."
