BMW and MIT's Self-Assembly Lab have collaborated to develop "liquid printed pneumatics", the first reported 3D printed inflatable material that can morph from one state to another and expand into any shape or function.
Researchers from MIT CSAIL and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions are working on a project called the RoBoat which will free up road traffic in cities with a network of canals. The boats are autonomous and can even come together to create floating structures, such as bridges.
MIT researchers are developing an autonomous construction rig that uses 3D printing and robotics to quickly create structures.
New online course from MIT and Boeing to teach professionals how to invent and implement innovative new applications for additive manufacturing.
MIT has developed "Programmable Viscoelastic Materials" which can be 3D printed to make soft skins and work as shock absorbers.
Researchers at University of Massachusetts Lowell have developed a new way to 3D print crucial components of radar systems. It’s a new type of ink that opens the door to the 3D printed radar.
MIT and Aether are collaborating to provide students at the university with Aether 1 3D printers so they can research bio-materials, including Citrene.
Looking to learn more about additive manufacturing? On December 5, MIT is hosting a free training webinar with Professor John Hart.
MIT researchers develop 3D printable expanding polymer structure that will fold itself up as soon as it's peeled off the print bed.
MIT researchers make it easy to build robots with a system called Interactive Robogami so you can design, print and assemble in five hours.
Steelcase, MIT's Self-Assembly Lab and designer Christophe Guberan have developed a speedy and scalable rapid liquid printing method.
Some of the greatest 3D printing inventions were made at MIT. Here’s how one of the most advanced universities is making 3D printing easier.
MIT showcases its rapid liquid printing process at Design Miami, 3D printing tote bags, lamps, and other art objects.
3D printing has just been given a speed boost: MIT researchers have developed a 3D printer that is 10 times faster than most consumer models.
With a 3D printed turtle or baseball, say MIT researchers, you have the tools you need to spoof a neural network in the physical world.
Students from MIT have created a prototype 3D printed device, AlterEgo, that can recognize the words you mouth when silently talking to yourself and interpret them as commands.
A team of researchers from MIT CSAIL have developed ColorFab, a platform that enables the creation of 3D printed objects that change color after production. This process could be integrated into the fashion and jewelry industry, and would help promote waste reduction.
