After hearing a college lesson on Pierre Schaeffer and his potentiometer d'espace, Raven Sanders, a student of the Lyle School of Engineering at SMU, decided that Schaeffer had the right idea when it came to audio mixing - a 3-D approach. She created a flat touch screen that works through frustrated total internal reflection. Sanders says the ease of use of this device over a mixing board allows for intuitively determining the audio source location and makes mixing surround sound fun again.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
