University of Washington Researchers Using 3D Printing to Fabricate Sensors

University of Washington Researchers Using 3D Printing to Fabricate Sensors | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers from the University of Washington led by Andrew J. Boydston, assistant professor of chemistry, are focusing on using 3D printing as a way of approaching the fabrication of easy-to-read mechanical force sensors, which would be nearly impossible to fabricate using standard manufacturing methods. Sensor-based polymers, which are able to change shape or composition in response to light, temperature and force, have proven to be a challenge to work with when designing products such as drug delivery devices.

Bees with chips might save the planet

Bees with chips might save the planet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Glued to the back of this Australian bee is an RFID chip that can track where it goes, what it eats, and when. But this bug won't be tracking you — instead, it just might save the planet.

The Internet of Anything: A Social Network for the World's Online Sensors

The Internet of Anything: A Social Network for the World's Online Sensors | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
When her oldest daughter was diagnosed with asthma last March, Yodi Stanton installed air pollution sensors around her London home. She wanted to see if there were links between her daughter’s attacks and the number of dirty particles in the air.

Ultimately, she wasn’t able to find a correlation. But maybe some else will find gold in this data. Instead of keeping it to herself, Stanton streamed the data to a public online service she helped create called OpenSensors.io, and from there, it can be accessed and analyzed by public health researchers, journalists, and other concerned citizens—or even feed into online applications that can make use of it.
