3D Printed drones – the future of air war?

0

New technologies are exciting enough on their own, but it’s when people start combining them that things get really interesting. Look at drones, for example. They’ve been around for a while, in fact, but compact electric motors and better control technologies are revolutionising them. Fifty years ago the average drone was something like the Ryan Model 147, a pilotless jet plane used for photo reconnaissance during the Vietnam War. It was 25 feet long, weighed [Read More]

MIT breakthrough brings 3D-printed robots closer

0

One limitation of 3D printers is that while they can make components there are restrictions on their ability to create complete, ready to go systems. The idea of a printer that could create robots without human intervention is still in the realms of science fiction. It’s just moved a little bit closer to reality though, because researchers at MIT have made a major step forward in printing diverse materials. Their latest innovation is able to [Read More]
