3D-printed material can carry 160,000 times its own weight

3D-printed material can carry 160,000 times its own weight | Technology News | Scoop.it
Researchers from MIT and Lawrence Livermore have created a new class of materials with the same density as aerogels (aka frozen smoke) but 10,000 times stiffer. Called micro-architected metamaterials, they can withstand 160,000 times their own weight, making them ideal for load-bearing, weight-sensitive applications. To do it, the team created microscopic lattice molds using a 3D printer and photosensitive feedstock (see the video below), then coated them with a metal 200 to 500 nanometers thick. Once the lattice material was removed, it left an ultralight metal material with a very high strength-to-weight ratio. The process also works with polymers and ceramics -- with the latter, they created a material as light as aerogel, but four orders of magnitude stiffer. In fact, it was 100 times stronger than any known aerogel, making it ideal for use in the aerospace industry. Given that it was funded by DARPA, it could also end up on robots, drones or soldiers.

WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com

WiFi To Exceed Wired Traffic By 2018: Cisco Study | Multichannel.com | Technology News | Scoop.it
In a forecast that bodes well for the cable industry’s ambitious WiFi initiatives in and out of the home, WiFi traffic will exceed wired traffic for the first time by 2018, according to a new report from Cisco Systems. By 2018, Cisco also expects high-definition video traffic to generate more traffic than standard-def for the first time. Those predictions are just two of a report full of them, alongside many other broadband-focused insights that Cisco pulled into its latest Visual Networking Index report, which looks at recent adoption trends and what’s on the horizon between 2013 and 2018. More on mobile broadband – WiFi and mobile-connected devices will generate 61% of IP traffic by 2018, Cisco predicted, noting that WiFi will represent 49% of traffic, cellular 12%, and fixed traffic 39% by then. In comparison, WiFi represented 41%, cellular 3%, and fixed 56% in 2013. IP video, Cisco said, will eat up 79% of all IP traffic by 2018, up from 66% in 2013. Ultra HD, meanwhile, will account for roughly 11% of IP video traffic in four years, up from a mere 0.1% in 2013. HD video, meanwhile, will account for 52% of all IP video traffic by 2018, up from 36% in 2013. On a broader basis, Cisco predicted that global IP traffic will grow nearly three-fold over the next four years – reaching an annual run rate of 1.6 zettabytes, or half a trillion gigabytes by 2018 -- as Internet usage and IP-capable devices proliferate and use broadband to distribute video. Also by 2018, Cisco expects the majority of traffic to originate from devices other than a PC.Click headline to read more--

Google Sheets as a Database - INSERT with Apps Script using POST/GET methods (with ajax example)

Back in 2011 I showed how you can use Google Apps Script to write POST/GET data to a Google Sheet. Over the years a couple of things have changed in Apps Script so I thought it was worth a revisit. This version uses features like LockService, PropertiesService and ContentService to make it more robust and make it possible to do ajax powered form submissions. The post includes a couple of tips that appear to be catching people out including versioning and permissions scope.

Excelente vídeo con una clara explicación sobre cómo utilizar la Herramienta para Presentaciones de Google Drive. Simple y una alternativa más a lo ya tradicional.

Arlis Groves's curator insight, July 4, 1:56 PM

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

Look, Ma, no hands: Google to test 200 self-driving cars

Look, Ma, no hands: Google to test 200 self-driving cars | Technology News | Scoop.it
General Motors . Toyota. Google ?
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

From the MSN Autos site; "Google is developing its own autonomous car, rather than adapting an existing production vehicle with its clever autopilot technology, has once again piqued interest in the debate surrounding self-driving cars". Although I see lots of potential uses for a self-driving car, it is still a bit scary to think about the potential danger that might surround them. I'm often left in awe at the advances and use of technology by creative and inspiring people...so... in this particular case, I'm going to sit back, enjoy the roadshow and continue to drive my car until the day comes when it's time for my car to drive me. Special thanks to our Network Engineer for sharing this article with me.
