3D Printing Hackers cracked “Secured” Keys In an exciting development in Australia – or worrying, depending on which side of the lock you’re on – a group of hackers in Melbourne has demonstrated their ability to use 3D printed keys to open security locks with highly restricted keyways. And how did they do it? […]

While some 3D scanner companies are working to scale down the cost and size of 3D laser scanners, mechanical engineer Callan Mackay has decided to take matters into his own hands. Mackay, a graduate from Scotland’s Heriot Watt University, has taken onto Instrutables.com to show how to build an affordable and functional 3D Laser Scanner. […]
Although 3D printing is certainly an emerging and relatively new technology, that doesn’t mean it can’t be used to revive classic forms of art and entertainment. Take the Chinese computer tech company Lenovo, for instance, who are now using 3D printing to advertise a number of their products. The Intel-powered Lenovo YOGA tablets, tabletop PCs, […]

3D printing technology has assisted in creating parts for a number of airplanes and helicopters across the globe. From Turbomeca’s 3D printed fuel injector nozzles to the environmental control system for the Bell Helicopter, this emerging technology has helped ease the load for certain traditional manufacturing methods. But has this use of 3D printing technology finally gone too far? One 3D printing hobbyist from Australia, named Darren Stuckman, is (facetiously) 3D printing a full-sized and fully operational Boeing AH-64 Apache helicopter off of his domestic 3D printer, taking military-grade power and putting it the hands of the dangerous Maker community.…

There’s a lot of thought put into the way that astronauts eat when they’re out exploring the confines of our Solar System, implementing special packaging and preparation to ensure that spoilage won’t occur. Even on the International Space Station, astronauts still have to eat three meals a day, and, as we gear up to further explore the surface of our moon and beyond in the near future, we must continue to reinvent the way food is eaten in space. Future Engineers is reaching out to the youngest and brightest minds to help prepare the tools of the future that will help us eat in outer space, asking students from Kindergarten to 12th grade to create a digital 3D model of a non-edible, food-related object to be 3D printed in space in the year 2050.…

My wife and I began the morning by watching one great artist honor another with Lady Gaga’s Grammy tribute to David Bowie. I didn’t know at that time that, to pull off what was a pretty stunning stage show, the Oscar-nominated pop icon used a handful of technology and help from Intel.
As the Grammy’s tribute begins, Lady Gaga sings “Space Oddity” with paint pouring down her face, finally forming the legendary lightning bolt associated with Aladdin Insane. To produce this unique effect, Intel first practiced the projections on a 3D printed copy of Gaga’s visage.…
