The company&#39;s plan is to make fairly affordable and quick-to-manufacture bionic hands and it thinks that 3D printing is the key.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Giving someone a hand, literally </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>What makes the difference in YouBionic&#39;s model is the Arduino microcontroller that works by using sensors and actuator motors. The sensor reads an impulse sent and then the motor could translate that impulse into a command to work the motors.</p> <p>To read a muscle&#39;s electrical impulse, it would take three electrodes. A red electrode at the centre, blue one at the end and then a black electrode toward the bone close to the muscle.</p> <p>3D printing would then fashion the YouBionic hand, using a schematic. As the Arduino component is fairly cheap, running on open source software, YouBionic believes that its prosthetics will also be able to be made for a reasonable price.</p> <p>Currently the YouBionic prosthetic hand is still a work-in-progress, made entirely out of plastic but YouBionic plans to add rubber to the design to help make actions like pinch grips easier.</p> <p>It&#39;s an exciting prospect and a great example of 3D printing being used to make things that aren&#39;t just cool but life changing.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ralph-lauren-s-new-smart-t-shirt-tracks-your-health/news">Ralph Lauren&#39;s t-shirt keeps an eye on your vitals</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/meet-youbionic-com-worlds-advanced-artificial-hand/" target="_blank">Digitaltrends</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/O9rQobseYbA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/youbionic-means-help-you-3d-print-your-own-prosthetic-hand/news#comments 3D printers 3D Printing Thu, 20 Nov 2014 06:58:00 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1453585 at http://www.stuff.tv iBox Nano is the world’s smallest, cheapest 3D resin printer http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ibox-nano-world-s-smallest-cheapest-3d-resin-printer/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Oh, and it prints from pretty much anything with a web browser </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="iBox Nano is the world’s smallest, cheapest 3D resin printer" alt="iBox Nano is the world’s smallest, cheapest 3D resin printer" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/ibox-nano-hotstuff.jpg?1414459804" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Wow, here&rsquo;s another overpriced, hulking 3D printer that I&rsquo;m not going to buy&hellip;</strong><br />No!

These last something like 20 times longer than DLP bulbs and give off very little heat, so don&rsquo;t require a noisy cooling fan.</p> <p>Oh, and it has an optional USB-chargeable battery, so you can take it pretty much anywhere and print.

It comes with 95ml of resin in one of three colours. The downside is that these rewards won&rsquo;t be available until April 2015.

So now 3D hobbyists all over the world are armed (sorry, couldn&rsquo;t resist) with the tools to make their own plastic handguns. Like this <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/may/08/japanese-man-arrested-guns-3d-printer" target="_blank">Japanese fellow</a>, who posted videos of himself operating some of his six printed guns and ended up being arrested.</p> <p dir="ltr">Homemade plastic handguns pose a real threat to safety - they are undetectable by metal detectors and can be assembled by any nut with a 3D printer and an internet connection. Sure, they can&rsquo;t do much without bullets, but having a working gun is already one uncomfortable step closer to killing someone than not having a gun.</p> <p dir="ltr">So that&rsquo;s why the latest rise of 3D printing has governments worried - its economical and technological benefits come with the risk of uncontrolled and widespread gun ownership. Even with regulation, gun-related violence is often on the top of news, so we can only imagine the chaos if schoolchildren started printing their own guns and bringing them to school. We can only hope that this risk doesn&rsquo;t tarnish the image of the technological renaissance that 3D printing has recently attained, and governments don&rsquo;t start banning 3D printers altogether.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/IylGx-48TUI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-6"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Are you a 3D believer yet? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr">As with any technological game-changer, the future of 3D-printing is exciting and uncertain.

While budget or discount brands are forced by economies of scale to offer fewer shades, consumers who want more makeup options have to go to pricier retailers.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Any shade can be yours </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>How Choi envisions her technology is this: simply go online, find any colour you want, send it to your Mink, and get any kind of makeup you fancy in that shade. Lipstick, blusher, foundation, powder, or cream, the Mink can do it all. No mention if mascara is included though, as the website only mentions &quot;wearable colour cosmetics&quot;, but Choi says what&#39;s possible will depend on &#39;business decisions&#39; as opposed to actual limitations.</p> <p>The makeup produced is created from FDA-approved substrates, and Choi&#39;s demo at the Disrupt convention in New York showed how easily powder eyeshadow was created just by taking the shade from a YouTube video.</p> <p>You can easily sample a shade from photographs, videos, or swatches. The Internet then becomes your online shopping store without actually having to shop for products, just the colour.</p> <p>Choi states that makeup margins (as high as 38%) are the highest compared to all other products. Mink, as it doesn&#39;t have to actually produce the makeup, has much lower margins, which is great news for consumers.</p> <p>Head on over to the Mink website and <a href="http://gracemink.com/"

world mean nothing without the software to back it up, and The Micro creator M3D LLC has designed the 3D printing software to be as easy to use as possible.</p> <p>It supports touch screen controls and has a simple interface, while an in-built search function lets you scour the web for objects which you can then watch come to life in front of your very eyes.&nbsp;</p> <p>Advanced users have the

It&#39;ll play nice with&nbsp;Mac OS 10.7 Lion +, Win XP+ and Linux (albeit with limited support for the latter), and features Wi-Fi, USB and SD card connectivity.</p> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/hot-stuff" target="_blank">CHECK OUT MORE HOT STUFF RIGHT HERE</a></p> <p>[<a href="http://markforged.com/" target="_blank">Mark Forged</a> via <a href="http://gizmodo.com/this-is-the-worlds-first-carbon-fiber-3d-printer-1511379510" target="_blank">Gizmodo</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Mark Forged Mark One" alt="Mark Forged Mark One" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/mark-forged-mark-one.jpg?1391045659" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/mark-one-worlds-first-3d-printer-can-make-objects-out-carbon-fibre/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/mark-one-worlds-first-3d-printer-can-make-objects-out-carbon-fibre/news#comments 3D printers Hot Stuff Wed, 29 Jan 2014 12:21:40 +0000 Elissa Loi 1431837 at http://www.stuff.tv This US$330,000 3D printer lets you create your own multicoloured wellies http://www.stuff.tv/sg/us330000-3d-printer-lets-you-create-your-own-multicoloured-wellies/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You wouldn&#039;t download a pair of shoes.... would you? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="This US$330,000 3D printer lets you create your own multicoloured wellies" alt="This US$330,000 3D printer lets you create your own multicoloured wellies" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/3d-print-colour-boots.jpg?1390872756" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Stratasys (the company who now owns <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/makerbot/ces-2014/makerbot-debuts-three-3d-printers-and-new-apps/news" target="_blank">MakerBot</a>) has unveiled the world&#39;s first 3D printer which can create flexible, coloured objects.</p> <p>The Objet500 Connex3 3D uses a combination of plastic and rubber printing materials which can be blended together to offer varying levels of flexibility and transparency.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/esat-dedezade" title="View user profile.">Esat Dedezade</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Like regular printers, colours are provided by a blend of cyan, magenta and yellow, letting you create items like rave-friendly multi-coloured flexible shoes and cycle helmets.</p> <p>The printer itself can churn through 30kg of rubber and plastic resin per run, and it&#39;s available to snap up today.
