Four Ways 3D Printing is Shaping Product Design and Manufacturing

Four Ways 3D Printing is Shaping Product Design and Manufacturing | MishMash | Scoop.it
Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have much to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function; gauge customer response; and compare design iterations without commitment. It’s even possible to quickly craft end-use parts, customized for a particular job. And no longer are manufacturing professionals limited by 3D printers that are too big, unfit for the office environment, and prohibitively expensive. Today, affordable, compact, office-friendly units are moving 3D printing capabilities to the desktop and dramatically expanding the availability of high-quality prototypes and parts.

Abu Dhabi falconers think drones are for the birds | Green Prophet

Abu Dhabi falconers think drones are for the birds | Green Prophet | MishMash | Scoop.it
Falcons have been trained for hunting and sport for thousands of years across the Middle East. Now falconers in the United Arab Emirates are turning to drone technology as a new tool to teach their birds to fly increasingly higher and hunt more efficiently. Can technology teach old birds new tricks? Falcons hunt by scanning the ground below them using a cone-like field of vision; imagine a spotlight scanning the earth - the bird's-eye-view is limited to what's moving within that beam. The area w

How Robots & Algorithms Are Taking Over by Sue Halpern

How Robots & Algorithms Are Taking Over by Sue Halpern | MishMash | Scoop.it
Banking, logistics, surgery, and medical recordkeeping are just a few of the occupations that have already been given over to machines. Manufacturing, which has long been hospitable to mechanization and automation, is becoming more so as the cost of industrial robots drops, especially in relation to the cost of human labor. Algorithms are writing most corporate reports, analyzing intelligence data for the NSA and CIA, reading mammograms, grading tests, and sniffing out plagiarism. Computers fly
