A Look Back At A 3D Printed Limb.

This may not be people’s first time seeing this 3D printed exo-prosthetic leg.  But it sure is remarkable enough to take a look back at.  The ‘exo-prosthetic leg’ was created by Adam Root, this 3D printed artificial limb uses modern technologies to fabricate its customizable, intimate, form-taking design to fit the leg. Developed to resolve the time intensive, costly and tedious current process of adapting a prosthesis to an amputee’s specific anatomy, this design enhances a combination of a 3D scanner, printer and modeling software in order to create a more precise and affordable manufacturing procedure.

Scanning technologies such as an inverted laser, form a highly precise virtual model of the patient’s residual limb and matches its anatomy to within a fraction of a millimeter. This, as well as the MIT biomechatronics lab developed fitsocket that captures leg tissue properties to enable a better fit, is then ready for 3D software modeling. All this information is combined in a custom-patterned mesh model and is hollowed out into an exo-skeleton, to reduce weight. By fusing together titanium dust particles in a laser sintering process, an extremely durable, lightweight and biocompatible prosthetic limb.

Simin Qiu, And His Swirly Sinks.


11

So the term “Swirly Sink” may be a bit of an over simplification… but Simin Qiu, a design student at London’s Royal College of Art, invented a luxurious-looking Swirl Faucet that will save water by turning it into a magnificent, gorgeous, swirling spiral.  The faucet works by transferring the water through a double turbine, which spirals as water moves through it, forming an elaborate and delicate lattice of water streams. The turbine also limits the flow of water by 15%, meaning that you waste less when using it. Three different nozzles let users choose which water-saving design they’d rather use.

Get Your Head In The Clouds.


464 186 262 362

Clouds are natural canvases and in certain conditions, they can look very picturesque. French artist and photographer Charles Pétillion drew inspiration from the visually limitless variations of cloud formations to create a cumulus cloud using over 10,000 illuminated white balloons. The installation, titled, “Heartbeat”, is featured inside London’s Covent Garden and stretches the length of its entire South Hall.

Describing the project, Pétillion says, “With Heartbeat I wanted to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area — connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.” Check out some more photos below.

Inspired by the sea’s most famous apex predator, the Hyperlien Shark 46 was designed as an abstraction of the fierce fish – the resulting aesthetic is modern, muscular and masculine.  Conceptualized by Janus Huang, Nissan Kao, Eric Wang and the Hyperlien Yacht Design Department, poised like it’s ready to strike, it’s aggressive lines and hydrodynamic shape are at once elegant and sporty. Inside, owners will enjoy a luxurious interior with all the trimmings, including an extra large sunroof that makes the cabin seem much larger while giving guests the feeling of being outdoors from the comfort of the plush interior.  Check the method.
