Here we describe an ultra-low-cost origami-based approach for large-scale manufacturing of microscopes, specifically demonstrating brightfield, darkfield, and fluorescence microscopes. Merging principles of optical design with origami enables high-volume fabrication of microscopes from 2D media. Flexure mechanisms created via folding enable a flat compact design. Structural loops in folded paper provide kinematic constraints as a means for passive self-alignment. This light, rugged instrument c
ThumbSat was born from our own frustration at not being able to find someone to get our own experiment into space quickly, cheaply and efficiently, despite our space engineering experience and contacts, and the advances in miniaturisation.
We think of batteries as just a fuel tank to power our electronic devices. Microsoft, Tesla and others have thought up a new idea: software-defined batteries, which use a bunch of specialized batteries to trade off power tasks as needed.
Robots and origami. Those are two things I never would have put together, but mechanical engineering professor Jamie Paik and her team at the Reconfigurable Robotics Lab, part of Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, have done...
