The KamerMaker 3D Printer Can Print Entire Rooms From Bio Plastic!

The KamerMaker 3D Printer Can Print Entire Rooms From Bio Plastic! | Human and Technology | Scoop.it

Dutch architecture firm DUS has developed The KamerMaker (RoomBuilder) – a 3D printer so large that it can create entire rooms! Dubbed by its creators the “world’s first movable pavilion,” the KamerMaker features an enlarged ‘Ultimaker’ 3D printing machine that is so big it’s actually capable of printing smaller pavilions. In fact, it is capable of printing objects as large as 7.2 feet by 7.2 feet by 11.4 feet. Not only that, but the large-scale 3D printer can produce objects made from corn bio-plastic. 

 

 DUS developed the KamerMaker in order to “bring together people from all design disciplines in an open source, on- the-spot design and build pavilion.” They hope that the 3D printer could be used to push the boundaries of 3D print design and building as well as raising awareness about re-use of (biodegradable) plastics.

Designing Our Children’s Future-Calling for a science of design, complexity, and collective action.

Calling for a science of design, complexity, and collective action.

-

It is sometimes said that biology flows downhill — we are endlessly concerned with the well-being and competency and future adaptive success of our children. The strategic challenge of promoting well-being and competency and adaptive success is ever-present, and scientists continue to investigate and debate optimum strategies of childhood program delivery. Effective program delivery also necessitates engagement with politicians and economists and community members, and all stakeholders upon whom the success of childhood programs depends.

There is an excellent book I read recently, Childhood Programs and Practices in the First Decade of Life: A Human Capital Integration, which highlights some of the academic, practical, political, social, and economic challenges that face people working in the area of childhood program design and delivery. Reading this book made me think about a very significant need that I believe permeates psychological science: We need a science of design, complexity, and collective action — a new type of applied systems science — to supplement our psychological science.
