Student Creates CUDA, the 3D Printed Underwater Jet Pack

About 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water and while technology for traveling on dry land has developed that allows people of moderate income to cover a fair amount of ground relatively quickly, underwater exploration of a comparable sort has remained out of reach for all but a few. In terms of individual […]

Buggy 3D Printed Kitchen Appliance Targets Sustainable Nutrition

While I don’t think many people would agree with young Simba’s culinary assessment of jungle bugs as being “slimy yet satisfying” in The Lion King, the truth is that insects are a very healthy food. Whole insect powder is up to 65% protein, chock full of amino and omega acids with very little sugar; it’s a […]
