Rapid Liquid Printing

This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.

Cilllia – 3D Printed Micro-Pillar Structures for Surface Texture, Actuation and Sensing

This work presents a computational method of 3D printing hair structures. It allows us to design and generate hair geometry at 50 micrometer resolution and assign various functionalities to the hair. The ability to fabricate customized hair structures enables us to create super fine surface texture; mechanical adhesion property; new passive actuators and touch sensors on a 3D printed artifact.

The Drip Printer by Ted Kinsman

An x-y axis printer is made by controlling a solenoid liquid valve. Slow and small resolution, but very inexpensive to print with. Here it is printing with blue water color ink, but it mostly prints with coffee.

HTC 10, the new flagship is a deliberate celebration of metal

“We wanted to make the 10 immediately recognizable from across the room,” said Hannes Harms, senior industrial designer. “To do that, we gave it a distinctive 3.3mm chamfer that runs around the outer edge and gives the phone a new, elegant silhouette.”

First topographically accurate lunar globe

Product designer Oscar Lhermitte with design studio Kudu are releasing the first topographically accurate lunar globe on Kickstarter. The project involves the use of the latest data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter combined with advanced electronic and mechanical engineering alongside careful craftsmanship in mold making.

A collection of screens, televisions, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec designed for Samsung

Serif is a collection of screens, televisions, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec designed for Samsung during the past two years. A television that moves away from a preoccupation with ultra-flat screens.

Carbon3D. CLIP Technology

3D printing has struggled to deliver on its promise to transform manufacturing. Prints take forever, parts are mechanically weak, and material choices are far too limited. That’s because current 3D printing technology is really just 2D printing, over and over again.

3D printing technology applied to classic stop-motion

Quick and affordable 3D printing technology applied to classic stop-motion opens Dutch science program Het Klokhuis (The Apple Core) which is Holland’s oldest youth television show, covering everything from the history of dinosaurs to how an iPhone is made.

THE OCEAN CLEANUP

19-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. While diving in Greece, he became frustrated when coming across more plastic bags than fish, and wondered: “why can’t we clean this up?”

Steel Tube Bending

Today, robots can shape pipes however one wishes—and Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner, together with Thonet and tube bending machine manufacturer BLM, has set out to explore the limits of present-day bending technology.

Long Distance Art One artist, two robots and three paintings

Alex is using two industrial robots (ABB IRB 4600) who are fed by real-time tracking data from Vienna via satellite connection to the remote cities. The result will be three artworks that are later brought together to built a triptych.

Blow and Roll

ZIETA Prozessdesign works constantly on the improvement of technologies such as FiDU – therefore one of the fields of activities is research and technology consulting. They test new forms and their behaviour in different complexities of final objects and of single shapes, so FiDU technology can be applied wider in the future.

What if Parametric is not digital?
What is Parametric is analogous?
What if Parametric is more about materiality and forces?

Membrane – A touch me cloth by Fafankula

‘Membrane – a touch me cloth’ is an interactive installation that reacts to your touch in an unusual way. Thanks to organic structure of the fabric-screen you can just FEEL it reacting.

Botanicus Interacticus

Botanicus Interacticus creates a magical experience through the non-invasive instrumentation of living plants. Aurora like particles are emitted around different plants, triggered and transformed by gestures and proximity between the human and the living organism. A range of plants such as a bamboo, an orchid, a snake plant and a custom build artificial one were explored, where each plant presented its unique interactive, visual and auditive character.

The 3Doddler, a 3D printing pen

Everyone knows how to use a pen, so we designed a 3D printing pen! If you can scribble, trace or wave a finger in the air you can use a 3Doodler. As you draw, plastic comes out of the pen, is cooled by an integrated fan, and solidifies right in front of you. You can draw on any surface and lift it up into the air to create your own 3D objects.

Leaders Of The 3D Printing Revolution by Shapeways

Shapeways CEO Peter Weijmarshausen describes how the concept of 3D printing is revolutionizing the market for custom-designed products, and we meet creatives who are applying the technology to their various disciplines. Gil Akos of creative coding group Modelab describes the potential for printing using a wide variety of materials, even biological ones that can be applied to medical science. Designer Mary Huang of Continuum Fashion shows us her N12 bikini, and 3D-printed strvct shoe collection.

Firewall by Aaron Sherwood & Mike Allison

Firewall is an interactive media installation created by Aaron Sherwood in collaboration with Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals as well as expressively play music.

Kelvin Doe a self-taught young inventor from Sierra Leone

He explained what inspired him to create the battery: “The lights will come on once in a week, and the rest of the month, dark.”

Smart e-bike

New urban movement: The ebike is another idea from smart for electric mobility on two wheels with no local emissions.

Leica lenses manufacture

Every Leica lens is hand-crafted and goes through meticulous manufacturing processes to uphold the quality and precision that Leica defines and customers have come to expect.

Haptic intelligentsia bringing craftsmanship into a computerised technology by Studio Homunculus

Haptic intelligentsia is a human 3D printing machine that allows the user to tactually perceive the virtual object and to directly transform it into the physical. The Method Case was with its designer,Joong Han Lee, at the Dutch Design Week and we could test the amazing feeling while moving and producing shapes with it. The user can freely move the extruding gun, which is attached to a haptic interface.

After the Bit Rush

The digital revolution, the great Bit Rush, is over. The question whether something is analogue or digital does not matter anymore. Everything we do is influenced by digital technology. Just as air and water, the property of being digital is only noticed when it is not there, not when it is there.
