IS IT A TREND if it never goes away? That’s the koan posed by the hoop

IS IT A TREND if it never goes away? That’s the koan posed by the hoop earring—a shape that’s been a continual presence in jewelry for thousands of years and yet has buzzily gained prominence over the past few. (Zendaya’s appearance in a saucer-sized pair at the Louis Vuitton 2017 resort collection did a lot to make that happen.) They were a standout accessory at several spring and fall shows, thanks to designers like Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and Stella McCartney, who partnered with the textile artist Sheila Hicks to create large, fiber-wrapped hoops.

Portable Medical Devices Market Size Estimated to Observe Significant Growth During 2018-2028 End

Wireless connectivity and miniature product design are no longer limited to smartphones and music players, but are also revolutionizing the healthcare sector with the ever-changing portable devices. Researchers are creating revolutionary products such as portable medical devices with the idea of simplifying and improving patient-care. For example, researchers of University of Geneva collaborated with hospitals in Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville to produce a diagnostic test for measuring traumatic injury in the brain using a single drop of blood. Similar revolutions are done by scientists of University of Glasgow, where they developed a device that takes patient reading and further transfers them to a smartphone, being an exceptional addition to portable medical devices segment. The approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is crucial factor as FDA regulates the sale of medical devices, which is granted to the device after the providence of evidence that state the device to be reasonably effective and safe for use. Manufacturers of portable medical devices seek the approval of the FDA as it is a vital aspect of the overall distribution of the product. Aptatek Biosc...

By investing in the latest aluminum die casting equipment from Norican, DGS China can now produce

By investing in the latest aluminum die casting equipment from Norican, DGS China can now produce the largest and most complex automotive parts. As electric cars become more popular and vehicles become lighter, aluminum is increasingly the metal of choice for high-value auto components like transmission housings, steering systems and chassis modules. That means business is booming at DGS China where the motto is “passion for lightweight”. A wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary of the Swiss DGS Group, DGS China specialises in high-pressure die casting in aluminum and magnesium alloys. Founded in 2007, the company moved to its current foundry at the end of 2012 where it mainly manufactures high-end components for China’s thriving auto industry – the world’s largest since it overtook the USA in 2009. “Over the last decade, the Chinese automotive industry has been growing rapidly,” says Mr Chengliang Song, General Manager of DGS China. “Over the past five years, our company has seen rapid development. In 2012, we sold RMB 40 million in products. This year, our sales have already surpassed RMB 320 million.” As the lightweight trend has grown, auto companies have asked DGS China to manufac...

Filament style 3D printers are great, but typically are rather size limited. Laser sintering printers offer huge print

Filament style 3D printers are great, but typically are rather size limited. Laser sintering printers offer huge print beds, but also come with quarter million dollar price tags. What are we supposed to do? Well, thanks to OpenSLS, it might just be possible to turn your laser cutter into your very own SLS 3D printer. We’ve covered OpenSLS a few times before, but it looks like it’s finally becoming a more polished (and usable) solution. A research article was just recently published on the Open-Source Selective Laser Sintering (OpenSLS0 of Nylon and Biocompatible Polycaprolactone (PDF) that goes over the design and construction of a powder handling module that drops right into a laser cutter. The team has created the hardware to turn a laser cutter with a bed size of 60cm x 90cm into an SLS printer. The beauty? The majority of the hardware is laser cut which means you already have the means to convert your laser cutter into a 3D printer. The design files are available on their GitHub. Hardware will likely cost you around $2000, which is peanuts compared to the commercial laser sintering printers. There is tons of info in their article — too much for us to cover in a single post. ...

Finally, Fortnite has nerfed the highly-powerful B.R.U.T.E mech that was introduced during the launch of Season

Finally, Fortnite has nerfed the highly-powerful B.R.U.T.E mech that was introduced during the launch of Season 10. The nerf will likely delight a number of fans, who have been calling for the mech’s removal as the mech has been almost unstoppable, and has altered gameplay tremendously when in play. The crazy, post-apocalyptic world of Borderlands will be heading over to the Fortnite universe in a new crossover event that will see the likes of Claptrap and the world of Pandora. The event will run until September 10th, only a few short days before Borderlands 3 arrives on September 13th. Wanting to track the top community issues?

Check out our SLS 3D Printer Guide to the best industrial and desktop SLS 3D printers.

Check out our SLS 3D Printer Guide to the best industrial and desktop SLS 3D printers. Includes SLS 3D printing services, technology overview, applications, materials, and more. Back in the 1980s, at the University of Texas in Austin, Dr. Carl Deckard and Dr. Joe Beaman developed and patented a manufacturing process called selective laser sintering (SLS). This was one of the first 3D printing technologies ever created, and over 30 years later, the technique is still being refined and advanced in a number of ways. SLS 3D printing uses a high-powered laser to fuse powdered material together into a desired 3D shape. This professional-grade technology is ideal for both functional prototyping and small production runs, as it offers a high degree of design freedom, high accuracy, and exceptional mechanical properties. Although SLS 3D printing was previously restricted to bulky and expensive machines, recent advancements have led to the development of more affordable and compact SLS machines. There are now a handful of desktop SLS 3D printers on the market, and even industrial-sized machines have become relatively inexpensive compared to traditional digital fabrication techniques. The ...

From America’s first satellite to its first reach for the stars, some of the Cape Canaveral sites built to launch the country’s space race and defense programs now look like ancient ruins. Now a team of Florida researchers is creating ways for future generations to appreciate the sites where man was launched to new frontiers through virtual reality. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – From John Glenn’s orbit of the earth to the Mercury Missions that led the United States into space, the historic sites built to launch the country’s space race and defense programs now look like ancient ruins. “The salt air is corrosive, so a lot of the metal parts are eroding,” explained Tom Penders, the cultural resources manager for the Air Force’s 45th Space Wing at Patrick Air Force Base in Cape Canaveral, Fla. “Every time there’s a tropical storm or hurricane, we have storm surges, beach erosion and large wind and rain events, it damages these launch complexes.” Models project that the ocean ...

On Sept. 15, 2017, Olivia stepped into a full-body scanner at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. When she stepped out, a female Transportation Security Administration officer approached. On the scanner’s screen was an outline of a human body with the groin highlighted. The officer told Olivia that because of something the scanner had detected, a pat-down would be necessary. As a transgender woman, Olivia, 36, had faced additional TSA scrutiny before. On those occasions, a manual search at the checkpoint had been enough to assure TSA officers that there wasn’t a weapon or explosive hidden in her undergarments. After patting down Olivia and testing her hands for explosive residue, the officer said that she still couldn’t clear Olivia to board her flight and that a further search would be required. Olivia was led to a private room where, she said, the officer patted her down again, running her hands down Olivia’s legs and over her groin. “I told her: ‘If the issue is what y...
