MIT Researchers 3D print synthetic spider webs to help design materials with high strength & low density

Of all of the things in the natural world, spider webs have consistently been one of the more fascinating biological structures known to man.  Between its high-strength properties (ounce for ounce it’s stronger than steel) to its complex mathematical patterns, the spider’s web is nothing short of one of nature’s most impressive structures.   Continue reading “MIT Researchers 3D print synthetic spider webs to help design materials with high strength & low density”

Could 4D technology Build And Improve On The 3D printed Car “Strati”?

For quite some time, many of us have desired our own cars to be smart, with the intelligence of the computer system being as important to some drivers as the style of the car. The recent creation of the self-driving buggy shows how far we will go to let vehicles do all the work, so it is no surprise that the concepts of 4D printing cars have been greeted with such enthusiasm.
