A National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded research team has successfully tested an autonomous underwater vehicle, AUV, that can produce high-resolution, three-dimensional maps of Antarctic sea ice. SeaBED, as the vehicle is known, measured and mapped
Brook Drumm's new all-metal Printrbot Plus 3D printer is a complete improvement of that model; it's sturdy, solid, efficiently designed and compact. You could call it the industrial version of the Printrbot.
There is a lot going on in Europe during the European Robotics Week: school visits with lectures on robotics, guided tours for pupils, open labs, exhibitions, challenges, robots in action on public squares…
James Chang's Super 3D Printer features a truly remarkable printing size of 1 x 1 x 0.8 m. And its not just the printing size that is monstrous, its also the filament it uses. James's printer is capable of printing in CMYKW.
Underwater exploration has traditionally been an exclusive endeavor, accessible only to deep-pocketed adventurers or researchers backed by government scientific agencies. But with the recent rise of citizen science and low-cost, open-source tools, the boundaries to underwater exploration are rapidly being degraded. OpenROV has been leading the charge since 2012, offering low-cost (sub-$1000) submersibles and sparking…
The idea to build this started out as a joke. I was going to make a gag video where I start describing how I built some completely ridiculous and unbelievable thing (ie, a working particle accelerator) out of LEGO bricks
For many decodes, a fantasy among space enthusiasts has been to invent a device that produces a net thrust in one direction, without any need for reaction mass. Of course, a reactionless space drive of this type is impossible. Or is it? By Charles Platt
