Wearable UV Sensors with Active Ink

Professor Vipul Bansal and his research team from the RMIT made a major advance in the field of monitoring UV rays. By developing a special active ink, they were able to build wearable sensors, displaying the wearer’s sun exposure and therefore helps to protect the skin from damage.  

US-Marines 3D-Print Their Barracks

US-Marines succeeded in 3D printing a concrete barrack of 500 square-foot in just 40 hours. This technology provides a much safer and longer durable living option for the Marines and might be completely automatized in the future.  

How 3D Printing and Architecture Intermingle

3D printing and architecture are closely connected fields, the latter being intruded by the first on multiple occasions. While 3D printing simplifies and automatizes architectural processes, it also changes the job profile of architects.
