Buggy 3D Printed Kitchen Appliance Targets Sustainable Nutrition

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 […]

3D Printed Lights and Artificial Intelligence Used in Interactive 'Living Architecture' Structure

A design that takes its cues from natural processes for creation is referred to as biophilic – rather than green design, which is used to keep harm from coming to the environment, biophilic design imitates the processes that allow the natural world to survive. Biophilic design has been used in a 3D printing construction project with living […]
