A robot that can walk directly after been picked out of the 3D printer is no longer science fiction. The waking robot is managed by a team at MIT University at its CSAIL laboratory.
The whole print is unique in the way that complex 3D printed objects often require multiple print and needs to be put together in a subsequent assembly work. In this case, the case is different as the 3D printed MIT’s six-legged robots, is complete printed with hydraulic components.
The print was made with a modified commercial 3D printer, so if any of you have the design it is not possible to print it with a normal 3D printer.
“After 15 years there is no more pain,” says Herbert K. The 78-year-old has since September an “acetabular implant” made from the 3D printer.
“Before that he had seven surgeries on his right hip,” says Peter Ritschl, Medical Director at the Orthopaedic Hospital Gersthof (KAV).
3D printer as a tool for the kitchen? This is what the future will be like, according Phair Tsai from XYZ Printing.
Food is a new hot area in the tech scene. It covers everything from producing vegetable meat and smart shopping bags to the production of space diet. Interest is high - all have to eat.
XYZ Printing is betting on 3D printers that can produce pizzas, cakes and other dishes.
