Manmeet Maggu and Rahul Udasi didn’t know it when they met at the University of Waterloo 11 years ago, but the bond they forged in late-night study sessions as roommates has helped drive their work to create an exoskeleton that provides mobility for children with disabilities. The fruit of that labor is Trexo Robotics, which […]View More Helping children overcome their mobility challenges, Trexo Robotics gets a Y Combinator boost
Researchers at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory invented a new 3D printer, which they nicknamed “replicator” after the famous Star Trek device. The printer makes objects appear seemingly out of thin air by using an off-the-shelf …View More This new 3D printer makes objects appear out of nowhere
3D printing has changed the way people approach hardware design, but most printers share a basic limitation: they essentially build objects layer by layer, generally from the bottom up. This new system from Berkeley, however, builds them all at once more or less by projecting a video through a jar of light-sensitive resin.View More This light-powered 3D printer materializes objects all at once
Just in time to ride the last of the pre-Super Bowl buzz, Carbon today announced that it’s teaming up with sports equipment giant Riddell to 3D print customized football helmet padding. Referred to as “Diamond technology,” the collaboration creates lattice design pads of resin that are custom built to a player’s dimensions and position. Carbon […]View More Carbon is 3D printing custom football helmet liners for Riddell

3D-printing the first rocket on Mars. That’s the goal Tim Ellis and Jordan Noone set for themselves when they founded Los Angeles-based Relativity Space in 2015. At the time they were working from a WeWork in Seattle, during the darkest winter in Seattle history, where Ellis was wrapping up a stint at Blue Origin . The […]View More Dreaming of Mars, the startup Relativity Space gets its first launch site on Earth
Globally, one-third of the food that we produce every year is going to waste. Dutch designer Elzelinde van Doleweerd wanted to address this issue and she started creating recipes that would incorporate discarded food and turn it into a printable food…View More These gorgeous 3D-printed snacks are made from food waste
There’s a lot you can make with a 3D printer: from prosthetics, corneas, and firearms — even an Olympic-standard luge. You can even 3D print a life-size replica of a human head — and not just for Hollywood. Forbes reporter Thomas Brewster commissioned a 3D printed model of his own head to test the face […]View More 3D-printed heads let hackers – and cops – unlock your phone
