Custom 3D-Printed Unibody Carbon Fiber E-Bicycle

Custom 3D-Printed Unibody Carbon Fiber E-Bicycle

The Superstrata touts a true unibody construction, 3D-printed in a single pass of continuous carbon fiber thermoplastic composite. Unlike other carbon fiber bikes whose frames are glued and bolted together using dozens of individual parts and fabricated from previous-generation thermoset composite materials, the Superstrata frame is constructed without joints or glue for seamless strength.

Insect-Like Robot Uses Artificial Neurons to Modify Gait in Real Time

Insect-Like Robot Uses Artificial Neurons to Modify Gait in Real Time

A research team has developed NeuroPod, an automaton that simulates the activity of a six-legged insect. The model, which walks, trots and runs, uses efficient and cost effective materials. It could therefore pave the way for the creation of prostheses or structures for the rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries at a reduced cost compared with those currently in use.
