3D Printing and Climate Change > ENGINEERING.com | Made Different | Scoop.it

According to the US Department of Energy, 3D printing uses “50% less energy and 90% less material than traditional manufacturing.”

For a sector that emits more than 1.2 billion tons of greenhouse gases a year, switching to a technology that reduces environmental impact that dramatically could spell much better fortunes for the environment's future.

This is an AMAZING engineering feat.  Great for CTE-STEM students to study and think about.

cassian bulger's curator insight, March 22, 2013 9:33 AM

inovative ideas such as these making robotics available to the general public are ingenious in my opinion as they help society adapt to robotics aswell as bring the awe in seeing what you can create.

The World as 100 People / Infographic

The World as 100 People / Infographic | Made Different | Scoop.it

A demographic portrait of humanity if the world were 100 people.

 

From data source, 100people.org:

The world population has now reached 7 billion people. This milestone inspired us to conduct research to update our statistics, and the changes over the past 5 years are remarkable. In 2006, only 1 person out of 100 would have had a college education-- today that number has jumped to 7 thanks in part to advances in higher education in Asia. The detailed research and source information can be found here and the statistics provided by Donella Meadows in 1990 that originally inspired our project can be viewed here.
