Visualization and virtual reality tools allow design engineers to build virtual prototypes that can be manipulated collaboratively. You can swap out materials and store data within the file.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Autodesk and Siemens PLM have reached an agreement to create seamless integration between their design software files.
Researchers have developed a lightweight, solar-energy-harvesting mesh of batteries that stretches, making it well-suited to wearable tech.
