Robotic Extrusion does 3D printing with a robot arm

Robotic Extrusion does 3D printing with a robot arm

A pair of researchers are working on a new robotic 3D printing system that has been dubbed Robotic Extrusion. The process uses a 6-axis robotic arm that is able to print items thanks to a print head attached to the arm. The goal of the project is to eliminate the line between designing and fabricating. For instance, the system could be used by architects to provide something other than flat drawings and construction notes to teams of builders.

ESPN gets iOS makeover, full Android update ‘in a few months’

ESPN gets iOS makeover, full Android update ‘in a few months’

ESPN might be the worldwide leader when it comes to sports information delivery, but apps — not so much. On iOS, ESPN has separate apps for the iPhone and iPad. Dubbed SportsCenter and ScoreCenter, respectively, the duopoly was confusing, but necessary. The larger iPad brought more to the table than the smaller iPhone, but now that we’ve got larger iPhones, ESPN is bringing some solidarity to their app offerings. A new app, simply known as ESPN, will be available on both iPhone and iPad, and has been reworked form the ground up.

Inside the charming indie movie filmed entirely with iPhone 6

Inside the charming indie movie filmed entirely with iPhone 6

If you still needed convincing that smartphone cameras are more than capable of professional results, "Romance in NYC" may do the trick. Shot not only entirely from the a single character's point of view, but using nothing more than an iPhone 6 and a selection of apps and accessories, the 15 minute short was crowdfunded on Kickstarter in late 2014 and is now making the rounds of the festival circuit. I caught up with director Tristan Pope to find out what made him put down his pro-camera kit for a smartphone, how the iPhone 6 delivered in unexpected ways, and why he ended up wearing a GorillaPod like a Hannibal Lecter mask.

Affinity Photo takes on Photoshop, currently in beta for OS X

If you want to edit photos like a pro, the term ‘Photoshop’ has become as synonymous with doing so as ‘Google’ is to searching the Internet for stuff. A new editor is on the horizon, though, and it’s pretty special. Affinity Photo is currently in beta, but packs a ton of Photoshop-y tools that pros and amateurs alike will find useful. It’s the same team behind another very useful Photoshop tool, Affinity Designer, and packs just as much punch for photo editing as Designer did for things like vector art.

Imgur drops ‘Pro’ subscription service, gives tools to all users

A recently announced GIF making tool was pretty neat; handy if you’ve ever wanted to get a looping snippet from publicly available YouTube or Vimeo video (or any other publicly hosted video, really). While Imgur could have stopped there and still found favor with users, they’ve instead gone ahead and made everything free to use. The paid tier to Imgur, Imgur Pro, is going away, and all the goodies in the Pro version will be wrapped up in Imgur proper.

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

This week we're seeing the next generation in Raspberry Pi technology. For those of you that've never heard of the Raspberry Pi, it's a barebones computer that's made to be exceedingly cheap whilst retaining functionality for do-it-yourself electronics makers. In other words - it's the brain for your next robot. This second major wave release is being put out for the same price as the most recent Raspberry Pi unit, but here you're getting a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU with 6x the performance of the previous best board.

Via their GIF creation tool, which is now live, videos from a hosting site like YouTube or Vimeo can become GIFs. Keep in mind that whatever GIF you create becomes public domain.

Facebook testing ‘Place Tips’ location-based service in New York

Facebook testing ‘Place Tips’ location-based service in New York

Context is important, and Facebook knows it. Scale is also important, but Facebook already has that one figured out with their billion-plus users. Combine the two, and you just might have a formula for success on several different levels. In New York, Facebook has placed beacons around the city in an attempt to better understand the locations of their users. Their reason? A new feature in the Facebook app, called 'Place Tips', will soon give you contextually based information based on your location.

AmbyGear wearable for kids includes educational games

AmbyGear wearable for kids includes educational games

A new wearable for kids has cropped up, and it's called the AmbyGear Smart Watch. The wearable has a typical smart watch design with decidedly kid-friendly flavors (there's zebra print, for example), and a low-end display that young children won't mind. It's not the first smart watch for children that we've seen, but it does deviate from the norm a bit by including educational games for the child on the watch. This is in addition to common functionality like integrated GPS and durable construction.

Exoplanet J1407b discovered with more rings than Saturn

There's a planet out there in the universe that has rings of matter surrounding it so large, they eclipse its nearby sun. This is J1407b, near the star J1407. The image you see here comes from Ron Miller of the University of Rochester, and it shows the planet and its rings as they would have appeared in early 2007. The planet was discovered back in 2012, but just now its become clear how extraordinary this planetary body truly is. Rings so massive they make our nearby planet Saturn look miniature by comparison.
