Understanding 3D Printing

You've heard about its potential to change the world and its incredible new wave of the future technology - but how does 3D printing actually work? It's not as complicated as it sounds, and it's a fascinating process, too - let's take a look at how customized objects can come to life through this new method of manufacturing.

The Basics

First and foremost, here's what actually happens when someone 3D prints a design:

How Technology Can Help the Environment

From hybrid vehicles that produce less pollution to appliances that make it easier to conserve energy, technology offers a number of ways to address a wide range of environmental problems. The pollution caused by industry and urban development as well as the impact of individual consumers and households has caused great harm to the natural world. The science and technology behind new vehicles, manufacturing methods and more sustainable ways to manage urban development may be able to provide a wealth of solutions.

The Science of Electric Cars

Manufactures like Tesla have created a new generation of electric vehicles that offer faster recharging times and a greater operational range than ever before. The first electric cars appeared during the 19th century, and were initially seen as holding many key advantages over internal combustion models. Electric powered vehicles soon fell out of favor once gas and diesel powered motors began to overtake them in terms of performance. Today, the electric car is poised to make a comeback, as each new generation of vehicle continues to offer faster charge times, more efficient energy consumption and increased operational range.

Using Robotics in Surgical Procedures

Several years ago, some medical scientists began experimenting using robots to perform some extremely delicate surgical procedures with considerable success. Two strong reasons support the wider use of robots in surgery: sensitivity and distance.

More Sensitive Surgeons

Unlike human hands, machines possess the ability to measure the pressures applied in holding instruments precisely and objectively. A machine can perform the same repetitive task reliably repeatedly. This feature offers great value in the performance of some very intricate surgical procedures. Even an extremely talented human surgeon wielding a scalpel may suffer an accidental slip, a misdirection of millimeters that nicks a blood vessel or bruises a sensitive adjoining tissue during a critical surgery. A robotic arm guided by an effective imaging program and a trained human surgeon sitting at the controls won't make those inadvertent mistakes. In fact, the robotic system may enable the surgeon to visualize the entire operating field much better than more traditional operating venues permit. Human beings cannot see through tissues, but robots guided by sophisticated imaging systems do possess this ability.

Robotics is the technology that involves the construction and operation of robots. No longer a futuristic concept, robotics are already a part of our lives whether we realize it or not. The following are just 5 ways that robotics is making our lives easier.

1. Remote-Controlled Snow Plow Robot

Who wouldn't love to not have to plow the drive on a cold, snowy day? The 6WD snow plow has already been featured on the Weather Channel. It can also be custom made with different size blades. These types of robotics can plow a driveway, a sidewalk, or the parking lot for a business. It not only makes life easier but provides an element of safety as well. Many people risk falls and other health complications when out in the cold shoveling snow.

Self-Driving Cars

The new technology and innovative engineering solutions created by industry leaders like Google and Toyota has made self-driving cars a reality. Many drivers would be surprised to learn that they have actually been sharing the road with self-driving cars for a number of years. While these vehicles were only driven in small numbers and were required to have a human occupant during their testing and development phase, the few remaining legislative and regulatory obstacles needed to put self-driving cars on the road in greater numbers are expected to be overcome in the very near future.

Nintendo's Wii Consoles

Nintendo is a leading video game hardware manufacturer and software developer, and they've been since the 1980s. Beginning with their Nintendo Entertainment System, the company built their legacy upon fun titles that are family friendly. Their latest offering are the Wii and Wii U systems. What follows is a breakdown of the Wii U.

Review

Most critics praised Nintendo for the Wii U's approach to technology. Using an innovative control scheme updated from the previous Wii console, the system allows gamers to experience their games in an entirely new way. The controller now features a small screen touchscreen similar to that found on Nintendo's recent line of handheld systems in the DS family. Others have criticized Nintendo's missteps in the console, noting some incomplete ideas. Another criticism comes from the consoles lack of third-party support. However, this is a non-issue for some, as Nintendo is known for their amazing first-party lineup. In all, the console offers an engaging experience for all ages.

A Look at Xbox Consoles

The Xbox console is one of the most popular video game systems of all time. The company was introduced to the world on November 15, 2001. At first, gamers were unsure of what to make of the console. Most people were used to gaming on Nintendo, Sega, or Sony platforms. However, it wouldn't be long until the presence of the Xbox was felt around the globe.

One of the first games released on the xbox was Halo. The epic first person shooter received several high reviews from video game critics. With the success of Halo and other Microsoft exclusive games, it quickly became clear that the Xbox would be around for years to come.
