Going Green in the US: Three Groundbreaking Eco-Friendly BuildingsGreen Building ElementsAs people become more concerned about the state of the environment, all industries are making efforts to go green.

As people become more concerned about the state of the environment, all industries are making efforts to go green. Though progress has been made across the board, architecture is an industry that has enjoyed significant success. All over the world, cities are building eco-friendly structures and renovating their existing buildings in order to lessen the strain on the environment. To design a green structure, architects rely on the rating system developed by the United States Green Building Council, which is known as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

Read the complete article for three of the greenest buildings in the United States, as determined by the LEED rating system...

3D printing 'bigger than internet'

 

 

"Its proponents say it's the next disruptive technology with the potential to significantly change the landscape of a number of industries. Peter Marsh, manufacturing editor, talks to one such supporter - Abe Reichental, chief executive of US-based 3D Systems - to find out how 3D printing works and how big a game-changer it's is likely to be."

Spanish Pavilion at Floriade 2012 by Pulgon Diseño

Spanish Pavilion at Floriade 2012 by Pulgon Diseño | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Pulgon Diseño have designed the Spanish Pavilion at Floriade 2012 in Venlo, The Netherlands.

The construction criterion arose from the conceptual approaches that have resulted in the slogan “naturally diverse”, highlighting the importance of diversity and natural richness. Likewise, the idea Cradle to Cradle is also present in the exhibition, and the designed spaces will allude to cycles and continuity as added and essential values, in a modern concept of sustainability and of the use of natural resources.

Some of the materials, serving both as support and as coating and paving, have had different previous uses: wood from fruit boxes, planks and wood from building works, demolition beams, sleepers. Others come from remainders of agriculture products such as nut shells or trunks from burnt forests. This way, the C2C remains unchanged, in terms of conceptuality and formality...

Social Banking

Social Banking | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

The time and energy we can invest in others socially – in terms of building and maintaining friendships – is a lot like money; we cannot spend it in two places at once. Given that we have a limited budget with which to build and maintain relationships, it’s of vital importance for some cognitive system to assess the probability of social returns from its investment; likewise, individuals have a vested interest in manipulating that assessment in others in order to further their goals.

Mineways Demo: Minecraft to Shapeways

"Key point: *you* can make 3D prints of your Minecraft models, you don't need your own 3D printer. Mineways creates 3D models of objects in your Minecraft world, suitable for rendering and 3D printing. It is focused on being a bridge between Minecraft and Shapeways, a 3D printing service, though models should print on any 3D printer. Models can also be exported for rendering on Blender or just about any other rendering application. Mineways is free, open source, and downloadable at http://mineways.com.

In the first two minutes I install Mineways, export a model from our Minecraft world (http://vokselia.com), preview the result, and then upload it to Shapeways, all while fighting off a cold (so please excuse my congested narration). Video-making is not my forte; I'll stick with my day job as a graphics programmer at Autodesk.

Bugs or problems? Please email me direct, you can find my email on the mineways.com site."

OpenROV Explores Aquarius

"One World One Ocean presents, in association with Liquid Pictures 3D -- Mission Aquarius -- a project of Aquarius Reef Base. Join the expedition athttp://oneworldoneocean.org/aquarius --

Introducing an open-source, tele-robotic submarine with live streaming video. You control it from the surface, and you see what it sees. Gone are the days of super expensive remotely operated vehicles. Now Open ROV is crowd-sourcing exploration, because a lot of amazing discoveries were made by chance, and the more people out there exploring, the more chance we have of understanding the mysteries of the ocean. Join us on the first real test of this exciting new technology in a dynamic ocean environment, at Aquarius.

"It shouldn't take a research grant to do exploration, it should take curiosity," says creator Eric Stackpole.

Since 1993, America's "inner space station" has helped us understand the disappearance of coral reefs, train NASA astronauts for space and research sea sponges, the source of two cancer drugs. The discoveries made at Aquarius have opened our eyes to how little we really know about the vast complexity of the ocean. It is one of the planet's most important brain trusts, and this is part of its last scheduled mission."

Compliant Control - Pole / Arm Climb

"This clip demonstrates recent work to develop compliant controllers for our lab's snake robots. These controllers allow the robot to automatically adapt its shape to changes in its environment. Until now most of our motions, including pole climbing, have been remote-controlled.

In this video the robot autonomously climbs a 4" pole, transitions to a 2" pole, and then to an arm, demonstrating that the controller is able to adapt to different diameters of objects without exerting too much force for to be uncomfortable in human contact."
