Engineers develop multimaterial fiber 'ink' for 3-D-printed devices

[ad_1] Using the 3-D printing method developed by the MIT researchers, a structure such as this model airplane wing could have both light emitters and light detectors embedded in the material, so that it could continuously detect any micro-cracks as they begin to form.

Solar flares, bubble rings, and ink chandeliers

[ad_1] Credit: California Institute of Technology Engineers from Caltech have generated a computer simulation of underwater bubble rings that is so realistic it is virtually indistinguishable from a video of the real thing. The point of the research, however, lies well beyond creating next-generation computer graphics. Instead, its developers hope that the simulation can shed […]
