Mindful Media: Easton LaChappelle’s Great Project – Brain Controlled Prosthetics

Easton LaChappelle has developed a million-dollar brain-controlled artificial limb. Now he’s giving away the technology as an open source project.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofcdWe1vvMU]

“There’s been a fundamental shift in how we see technology. Science and engineering are no longer just industries. Technology is something we’re passionate about, whether we’re arguing over the iPhone or eagerly anticipating the next technology that will change everything. Just like every song has a story, the technology we most care about has a deeply personal journey behind it, from Steve Jobs’ decades-long obsession with changing how we use computers to Sergey Brin and Larry Page turning a fascination with the mathematics that underlie how we use the Internet into Google. Just like we care as much about the singer as we do the song, we care about the engineer behind the world-changing idea.” [More…]

3D Printed Gold by Shapeways

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCyYf8lUqqs]

Video first published to YouTube by Shapeways on Apr 25, 2014.

Welcome to the golden age of 3D printing: introducing 14 carat gold to the Shapeways materials family.

This video highlights the hand-polishing process that gives our designers’ products their beautiful high shine.

Like all of Shapeways cast metals (silver, bronze, brass), your designs are 3D printed in wax. The wax model is used to make a plaster mold for casting, and is made through traditional casting, hand-finished processes. With 3D printing, jewelers, designers and makers can design intricacies and geometries that are not possible through traditional mold making.

4D Printing: Self Assembling and Self Adaptive Materials

Skylar Tibbits: The emergence of “4D printing” – 3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. 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. Originally published to YouTube on Apr 4, 2013.
