Is 3D Printing Practical and Accessible? They Think So. (Video)

Get a look at 3D printing at the Boise Public Library  YouTube

People are always asking me if I think that 3D printing will become pervasive, if the average person would have any need or interest in printing out items. Being a strong believer in the proverb that “Seeing is believing”, I think this video that shows a Boise, Idaho father and daughter printing a custom wall outlet cover at their local public library says it all:

Of course, there will be those readers that question whether or not government funds should be provided to libraries for services like this - but that’s a totally different debate.

Robot PET Dog Drives Real Dogs Crazy – (Video)

Robot PET Dog Drives Real Dogs Crazy  YouTube

The new ROBOTIS PLAY600 PETs robot kit includes a cute bird that only took a few minutes to assemble, but provided lots of fun and excitement for our two dogs.

The kit allows very young learners to get involved in building simple robots even before they are old enough to start learning how to program. ROBOTIS expects to release the kit for sale in February.

Total assembly time for this robot was about 10 minutes. The kit includes all the parts and plans for two other, slightly more complex, animal type robots that move.

Kondo KHR3 Video Review ! (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:

This is a review on the Kondo KHR3 Humanoid Robot from Japan. I have not made any code nor hardware changes to it yet. My thought on how the KHR3 differs from the Bioloid Premium & Bioloid GP. Thank you my client for letting me borrow his robot to do this review. For more information check out our website Unclebob Robotics Limited Hong Kong Robot

HP Multi Jet Fusion™ Technology: Limitless potential for 3D Printing (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:

Learn more about the new HP Multi Jet Fusion™ Technology for 3D printing here: HP Multi Jet Fusion™ Technology enables the world to realize the full potential of 3D printing in fully functional parts. HP transforming agents could control texture, friction, strength, elasticity, electrical properties, thermal properties, and more. Imagine a single part, with stiffness optimized in some areas, elasticity in others. Or wear resistance and friction customized where needed. Or imagine printing a complete electromechanical module in a single 3D build, without requiring further assembly. HP's full system solutions could allow inventors to design and build assemblies that have form and function surpassing what can be imagined and manufactured today. The list of future possibilities seems endless.
