With legs, the 8-foot Robonaut will be able to climb throughout the 260-mile-high outpost, performing mundane cleaning chores and fetching things for the human crew.
As is customary for experienced model builders, the design of the mock-ups needed to be indistinguishable from a series version, in terms of impression, function and feel.
Doing some crystal-gazing into the future, I see AR leap-frogging into the next level of sophistication. Interestingly the common factor seen is AR being integrated with other cutting edge combination technologies to produce interesting new applications in manufacturing.
It's a very exciting time for manufacturing - a manufacturing renaissance, when old ideas of manufacturing being about mass production are no longer true, and 3D printing and other technologies are changing the barriers to entry and economies of scale.
Many expect GM sales to take a hit from a mishandled recall of small cars, though it's unclear when and how severe. Any decline would hurt the automaker's market share and potentially its credit rating.
The micro-factory philosophy aims to bring an open platform and co-creation to the appliances market so that the company can create the products that consumers want at an accelerated pace. FirstBuild will utilize the local talent in engineering and advanced manufacturing to build a network of on-site community members.
The redesigned 2015 Camry is longer and wider, with a more aggressive design. Toyota says it changed every exterior piece but the roof.
What’s great about this partnership is that it allows small manufacturers the ability to learn more about 3D printing through demonstration areas.
In its prime, a massive steam locomotive known as Big Boy No. 4014 was a moving eruption of smoke and vapor, a 6,300-horsepower brute dragging heavy freight trains over the mountains of Wyoming and Utah.
The M.V. Recyclone barge, which is still in the concept phase, would use large nets to trap plastic and other garbage floating on a river’s surface. A suction system, borrowing that tech from the household vacuum, would then pull in the waste and shred it.
Toyota has developed an efficient gasoline engine using technology fine-tuned with gas-electric hybrids, in which the Japanese automaker is an industry leader.
A Swiss team planning to complete the first round-the-world solar flight next year has unveiled a new version of the plane they say can remain in the air indefinitely.
No one should expect that their next Corolla will be handmade — not by any means — because the company is using human labor as a means to figure out ways to improve automated production lines.
A federal program is giving companies from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan a chance to get free, confidential research and development insight directly from NASA experts.
Saliva-powered micro-sized microbial fuel cells can produce minute amounts of energy sufficient to run on-chip applications, according to an international team of engineers.
Scientists have created a detailed, three-dimensional wiring diagram of the mouse brain. That should help researchers seek clues about how the human brain works in health and disease.
Check out some of this week's top headlines from across Manufacturing.net, from Wal-Mart's recall of 174,000 doll from China to reinventing the toilet.
Beyond games, Zuckerberg said virtual reality headsets might someday be used to enjoy a courtside seat at a basketball game, study in a classroom, consult with a doctor face-to-face or shop in a virtual store. The technology also has social applications, he said.
Lockheed Martin is working in New Orleans on parts for the Dream Chaser, a mini-shuttle designed to take NASA astronauts to and from the International Space Station. "It's great to see the lights back on," Jim Crocker, vice president of Lockheed Martin's Space Systems Co., said Tuesday.
Dr. Glenn Green and Scott Hollister came up with the solution to save a young boy's life: use 3D printing to build small splints that would help keep his trachea open until it was strong enough to do so itself.
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.
