Bringing Industrial Manufacturing to the Desktop with New MoldLay 3D Printing Filament (VIDEO)

One of the main limitations to desktop FFF 3D printing’s use is often a filament’s material properties. Kai Parthy has been a powerhouse when it comes to inventing new fused-filament deposition materials, inventing LayWoo-d3, BendLay, and more. Now, Parthy has come up with a revolutionary new material called: MoldLay. Continue reading “Bringing Industrial Manufacturing to the Desktop with New MoldLay 3D Printing Filament (VIDEO)”

Squishy robots: Phase-changing material could allow even low-cost robots to switch between hard and soft states

In the movie “Terminator 2,” the shape-shifting T-1000 robot morphs into a liquid state to squeeze through tight spaces or to repair itself when harmed. Now a phase-changing material built from wax and foam, and capable of switching between hard and soft states, could allow even low-cost robots to perform the same feat.
