Engineering Newswire 86: HeliCat Looks Like Copter, Drives Like Boat

421 views 2 days ago
Today on Engineering Newswire, we're using a robot as a portable printer, cruising the water with the HeliCat, and rediscovering physics with electron beams.

Building Better Electron Beams: The Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has opened the door to the future by recording the first data of the 12 billion electron-volt era. By sending beams of electrons around this giant accelerator facility, experimenters can run high-end physics experiments, like discovering the building blocks of the universe.

Ink Squirting Robot is a Portable Printer: Based on an omni-wheel system, this pocket-printer can move in any direction, and can print on any size of paper, lasting for up to an hour on a full charge. This ink squirting robot is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter with 24 days to go and less than $50,000 left to raise of the original $400,000 goal.

HeliCat Looks Like Copter, Drives Like Boat: The HeliCat 22 is great for stable & safe, fun, fast, economical and practical water travel. It features two independent motor/fuel/electrical systems for redundancy, and can travel up to 20 to 30 miles per hour in whitecap waves at 5 miles per gallon, which is impossible with other boats.

Do you have story ideas? Comment below and we'll cover them in an upcoming episode.

Engineering Newswire is a weekly web series dedicated to exciting new developments in the design engineering realm. From the seemingly sci-fi concepts to progressive new R&D projects, Engineering Newswire is dedicated to the innovations engineered to sculpt our future. As a part of the PD&D TV channel (supported by http://www.pddnet.com/), the show airs every Thursday and features executive editor David Mantey, editor Meaghan Ziemba, and associate editor Chris Fox as they cover engineering as no one has ever seen it before.

Kickstarter of the Week Play

Kickstarter of the Week is a weekly web series focused on new designs and engineering projects seeking backer support on the popular crowd-funding website Kickstarter.com. As a part of the PD&D TV channel (supported by http://www.pddnet.com/), the show airs every Monday and is anchored by Product Design & Development associate editor Melissa Fassbender. The show features unique new projects and discusses how each new design came to life, from conception through production (or to whatever station at which it currently resides).

Rapid Fire Play

RapidFIRE is a weekly web series focused on new technologies in the exciting world of rapid prototyping and 3D printing. As a part of the PD&D TV channel (supported by www.pddnet.com), the show airs every Tuesday and features executive editor David Mantey and associate editor Chris Fox, as they take a technical look at the news currently making waves in the world of engineering.
