Indeed, vimalkumarp, NASA has had a hand in developing a lot of technologies that benefit the world, not just the space agency. With NASA innovating this way it makes sense that commercial technology will follow suit. This really holds a lot of promise for the rapid evolution of 3D printing, I think.
it is incredible that a rocket engine was fabricated this way. the most important point that i feel is that if you analyse the technology evolution, space technology has always been a pioneer. So any advancement in space will cause ripples in other domain and this is good for having solutions that will enhance quality of life. Thanks a lot Cabe for the blog.
Yes, Elizabeth. My Montana kitchen imitates a time when someone just mixed a bunch of blue minerals (chromium ?) to get a color to add to the whitewash/lime. But, yes we have gone beyond Pantone color match at the hardware store to get to other world / artificial reality. I like your comment because it is close to home.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
