Origami-Designed Motor Scooter, 3D Printed Weather Station, and More Supplier News

This week’s news includes everything from an eye-safe machine laser to a smart mold injection process.

We have quite a range of new products to look at this week. One of the most interesting is the Stiltride’s electric motor scooter that was designed with folded steel using a concept based on origami folds. We’re also looking at 3D-printed weather stations and an autonomous driving solution resident on Microsoft Azure.
