The history of automation begins in 1790 and roars through the 20th Century with stunning advances. One of the highlights was the Ford River Rouge Plant -- iron ore went into one end of the plant and a finished Model T came out the other end.
Does it sound like magic? It's not. You can 3D-print with wood filaments right now, using a choice of colors and filament widths. Objects made from these materials range from things resembling plastic or lumber to stunningly beautiful art pieces that look just like the real thing.
Researchers at Harvard University have designed a soft robotic cardiac simulator that can move with a 3D motion similar to how an actual heart valve twists when blood pumps through it.
Georgia Tech recently announced that it purchased 10,000 licenses for Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE to support its engineering community in designing the next wave of innovative design works.
Using green energy lets engineers create environmentally friendly power systems and indirectly helps to reduce greenhouse gases. The costs related in creating effective power-supply systems can also significantly become low with the use of renewable energy.
