World’s First 3D Printed Supercar does 0-60 in 2.2 Seconds

[embed][/embed] The automobile industry has been relatively stagnant for the past several decades. While new car designs are released annually, and computer technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, the manufacturing processes and the effects that these processes have on our environment have remain relatively unchanged. Over the past decade or so, 3D printing has shown some promise in the manufacturing of automobiles, yet it has not quite lived up to its potential, at least according to Kevin Czinger, founder and CEO of a company called Divergent Microfactories (DM). The Blade 3D Printed SupercarToday, at the O’Reilly Solid Conference in San Francisco, Kevin Czinger is about to shock the world with a keynote presentation he will give titled, “Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing.”“Divergent...

Open Source Hardware is Eating the World — Medium

Open Source Hardware has been making headlines in industry publications and tech communities for years, but only now is it finally enjoying the same mainstream adoption that the Creative Commons and Open Source Software have enjoyed for over two decades. With growing numbers of hardware designs publicly available to study, modify, distribute, and replicate, resistance is futile!Move Over Patent TrollsMuch like its immediate software relative, Open Source Hardware uses existing hardware design licenses rather than creating new ones, to co-innovate and share it forward. In a stark shift from the usually guarded patent world of hardware, we find a new environment for the sharing of ideas. Literally hundreds or thousands of hardware designs—circuit design, component integration, machines, tools, processors and practically anything that can be...

Warning: reading damages ignorance

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="700"] This reimagined bookshelf rivals all of its more classical counterparts with style. Less is certainly more with this piece; the designer understands that it is possible to pull off simplicity with such elegant finesse. Notice the bravely plain architecture. Enhanced by american walnut veneer finished shelves, the shelves are complemented magnificently by the rather stark powder coated steel frame. Whatever Alex De Rouvray has done, we like it.[/caption] To the drawing room: The Severin Bookshelf by Alex de Rouvray

The Livescribe notebook by Moleskine ®

Now here is something worth getting excited about. Moleskine announced a little while ago designs for a new ‘Livescribe’ notepad, capable of recording your pen actions on paper. I.e. you can digitally reproduce onto a tablet or laptop what you have drawn in real time! Designed in parallel with the Livescribe Smartpen and the Livescribe app, this will have huge ramifications in the design industry. Utilising a special dot pattern printed on each paper sheet, the Smartpen's unique onboard infrared camera can distinguish between these dots while they remain invisible to the naked eye. Each page has a unique dot pattern so that it can determine specific pages. The livescribe smartpen also boasts audio capabilities. What!? You can record what you are thinking whilst jotting down a specific idea, and then playback whenever you wish!...
