3D Printing & Mass Customization

BY HOT POP FACTORY
@ VOL 20 ON JAN 22, 2013

Digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing are becoming mainstream. A new movement is emerging where you'll be able to design every object you own, from your kitchen knives to your cell phone. This is the new industrial revolution, a transition from mass-production to mass-customization.

3D-Printing Biology

BY CORRIE VAN SICE
@ VOL 23 ON SEP 20, 2013

Corrie Van Sice works at the intersection of design, engineering, and biology. She speaks on the under-discussed dilemma of "innovation" run amok. Corrie posits that if more scientists were to operate like artists (in that they could explore their studies without university or corporate control), development in their field might take a new and exciting direction.

Innovative Mechatronics

BY JOSEPH MORGAN
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 25, 2014

Joe Morgan is a professor in Engineering Technology at Texas A&M. He and his students discuss taking ideas to prototypes using the capstone design process, from computers, control, electronics, and mechanical systems that together support innnovative product design, together called "mechatronics."
