Engineers create 3D-printed objects that sense how a user is interacting with them

“Advance incorporates sensing directly into an object’s material, with applications for assistive technology and “intelligent” furniture. MIT researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures …

ESP32 and Toit: Log sensor data to Google Sheet and emailing

“An ESP32 board will read pres and temp from BMP280 sensor and log the readings to Google Sheets. Furthermore, we’ll also send email alerts. The majority of IoT applications revolve around the use of sensors to automate practically anything …

Ethical Artificial Intelligence is Focus of New Robotics Program

“Ethics will be at the forefront of robotics education thanks to a new University of Texas at Austin program that will train tomorrow’s technologists to understand the positive — and potentially negative — implications of their creations. Today, much robotic technology …

Groundbreaking Technique Yields Important New Details on Silicon, Subatomic Particles and Possible ‘Fifth Force’

“Using a groundbreaking new technique at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an international collaboration led by NIST researchers has revealed previously unrecognized properties of technologically crucial silicon crystals and uncovered new information about an important subatomic particle …

Have we detected dark energy? Cambridge scientists say it’s a possibility

“Dark energy, the mysterious force that causes the universe to accelerate, may have been responsible for unexpected results from the XENON1T experiment, deep below Italy’s Apennine Mountains. A new study, led by researchers at the University of Cambridge and …

How to Catch a Perfect Wave: Scientists Take a Closer Look Inside the Perfect Fluid

“Berkeley Lab research brings us closer to understanding how our universe began Scientists have reported new clues to solving a cosmic conundrum: How the quark-gluon plasma – nature’s perfect fluid – evolved into matter. A few millionths of a second after …

International team improves efficiency of liquid metal batteries

“Climate protection means increasingly turning to renewable energies. But in order to store the energy produced by solar, wind and other regenerative processes, sophisticated systems are required. Today’s storage options are still too expensive and hardly or even impossible …

ITMO Researchers Create Nanoparticle Paste To Maximize Perovskite Solar Cell Efficiency

“An international team of researchers from ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering and Tor Vergata University of Rome found a way to increase the efficiency of perovskite-based solar cells. The project was supported by a Russian Science Foundation grant …

Kerbal Controller - the Basics

“The goal of this tutorial is not to show how to build a specific KSP controller, but to show many of the common design choices and their pros and cons. The idea is to guide you to make your own …

Project  Laser Harp

Laser Harp

“The laser harp was born as a remake of an old project. The basic idea is to create a variation of a classic instrument such as the harp using current electronic technologies, such as microcontrollers, sensors and speakers. The structure …
