At 300 feet long, the HAV 304 “Airlander” is the biggest aircraft currently in production — 60 feet longer than a Boeing 747 — and it’s being made by England-based Hybrid Air Vehicles for a cool $100 million.
Who would have expected a toilet to one day filter water, charge a cellphone or create charcoal to combat climate change?
Check out some of this week's top headlines from across Manufacturing.net, from a NASA robot that is six feet tall and has an 80 inch wing span, to Tesla's latest battle.
IBM and its Watson cloud computing system are partnering with the New York Genome Center to help it sequence DNA for the treatment of brain cancer.
Since the Concorde’s final landing at London’s Heathrow Airport nearly a decade ago, commercial supersonic air travel has been as elusive as a piece of lost luggage. However, this hasn’t stopped NASA from continuing the quest to develop solutions that will help get supersonic passenger travel off the ground once more.
Autonomous driving has long been on the to-do list for car manufacturers, but within the last year consumer interest has spurred inquisition in both the engineering community, as well as the legal arena.
Valkyrie stands more than six feet tall, weighs 286 pounds, and has an 80 inch wingspan. “It feels human-like, you can look her in the eyes,” says Reg Berka, deputy project manager of Valkyrie, the NASA built robot destined for the red planet.
Benjamin Bishop, 60, admitted to keeping classified documents at his home, including ones outlining the U.S. Pentagon's China strategy and the U.S. military's force posture in Asia and the Pacific.
The goal of the demonstration project launched this month is not so much to print a functioning house — in fact, parts of the house will likely be built and re-built several times over the course of three years as 3-D printing technology develops.
All 2014 models of 370Z continue with Nissan's squat, strong, exterior appearance that's unlike that on any other car. It reminds some observers of a car body composed of flaps rather than graceful curves.
