New 4D Printing Technology Reveals Possibilities for Composite Materials

Forget about printing in 3D; it turns out that scientists are looking forward to printing in 4D. They’ve successfully added a fourth dimension to their printing technology, opening up exciting possibilities for the creation and use of adaptive, composite materials in manufacturing, packing and biomedical applications.

In order to actually accomplish this feat, the researchers incorporated “shape memory” polymer fibers into the composite materials used in traditional 3D printed. These fibers result in the production of an object fixed in one shape that can later be changed to take on a new shape. At first, the scientists combined a strand of plastic with a layer made out of “smart” material that could self-assemble in water.

“We advanced this concept by creating composite materials that can morph into several different, complicated shapes based on a different physical mechanism,” said Martin Dunn, one of the researchers, in a news release. “The secret of using shape memory polymer fibers to generate desired shape changes of the composite material is how the architecture of the fibers is designed, including their location, orientation and other factors.”

Emergency flashlights have always been a necessity for everyone. But by the time you actually need to use them, the batteries have died. Eton’s new Blackout Buddy H2O, is the answer to such problems. A product that will still work after sitting for up to 10 years, according to reports. And to turn it on, you just have to add water to it.

The latest member of the blackout Buddy line features a magnesium Oxide battery, which starts providing current to the light’s three LEDs when exposed to H2O. For the initial startup, you have to dip it in a small amount of water. Or just pour water into the battery compartment. After that it will continuously work for 72 hours and may the light start to dim, you’ll just have to add some more water.

Say hello to a new sensor that can be incorporated into car seats and will be able to identify if a driver is drunk or intoxicated. The sensor has been created by a team of researchers from University of Tokyo and Hiroshima University in Japan while collaborating with Delta Tooling. The gadget can also tell if the driver is getting drowsy while driving.
.
The sensor can also be installed in a patient’s bed and shall be able to notify if the pulse is abnormal or if the patient undergoes a heart attack. As far as the sensor’s functioning is concerned, it makes use of the built-in microphone, capable of detecting vibration and sound being produced by the cardiovascular system of the user in question. A foamy fabric makes it easier to be fixed into a seat or bed without causing discomfort to the user.

The 4.6 metre long submarine was built using parts from a small yacht and took Zhang and his friends 25 days to build. According to Zhang the submarine can travel for 20km/h for 10 hours. Zhang used to be the apprentice of Li Yuming, a local renowned submarine enthusiast who built 7 submarines in the past five years.

Boeing and SpaceX Win $6.8 Billion for Apollo-Style Space Taxis

NASA is going back to the future with $6.8 billion in backing for Apollo-style spaceships designed by Boeing and SpaceX. Both companies have been given the go-ahead to build, test and fly their gumdrop-shaped “space taxis,” with the aim of transporting astronauts to and from the International Space Station starting in 2017.

“Today, we’re one giant leap closer to launching our astronauts from the U.S. on American spacecraft,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said Tuesday from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

 Since the retirement of the space shuttle fleet in 2011, NASA has had to rely on the Russians for rides to the station, at a cost topping $70 million per seat. Tuesday’s award is the latest phase in a years-long commercial effort aimed at fixing that situation — an effort that already has cost NASA $1 billion.

Seventeen-year-old Kai Kloepfer’s idea for a finger-print sensitive smart gun came to him in a dream. This week, the Colorado teen won a $50,000 grant from the Smart Tech Challenges Foundation with the hopes of bringing that vision to life.

In an interview with FOX’s Denver news channel KDVR, Kloepfer said that he believes his invention could improve America’s gun safety and reduce accidental gun deaths. He describes a design that is simple and user-friendly.

“All you have to do is pick the firearm up and the way you naturally rest your hand on the firearm unlocks it,” he says. “So you don’t have to swipe or anything like that.”
