BioPower Systems of Australia a wave power company has partnered with the City of San Francisco to investigate the generation of wave energy from the Pacific Ocean to light homes there. BioPower will work with the San Francisco Utilities Commission to assess the feasibility of a project located five miles off San Francisco's western beaches. The project will consider installing a wave farm that can generate between 10 and 100 MW.
BioPower's BioWAVET system is designed to supply utility-scale, grid-connected renewable energy while being out of view and without affecting marine life. The system sways in time with the forces of the ocean and streamlines when extreme conditions prevail. Multiple BioWAVET devices, each with a capacity of 1 MW, would be installed as an undersea wave energy farm with the combined power output supply to the on-land grid via subsea cable.

Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
