Forgotten Archery Skills

The Danish archers Lars Andersen has rediscovered an old and very fast way to shoot bows:
“In 60,000 years, man has shot with bow. Today we know very little about the past archery.
So much is lost. There are no truths, or proper ways to shoot with bow,
I have rediscovered something about archery, but there is still so much to rediscover”

Cosyflex™ is 3D printed textile


Cosyflex™ is the world’s first ever technology developed to 3D print finished textile products. A radical departure from traditional textile manufacturing techniques, Cosyflex’s unique additive manufacturing method creates a next generation of textile that is so versatile.

Cosyflex™ prints unlimited fabric variations with any combination of features, patterns, embossing or perforations, seamlessly and on the same sheet.

Skateboarding Shreding

No cutting. No camera magic. Just pure skateboarding…
Can somebody develop a body suit that would give us more protection, but allow for these kinds of unrestricted movements?

Inkjet-Based Circuits at Fraction of Cost


Georgia Tech Develops Inkjet-Based Circuits at Fraction of Time and Cost
Researchers from Georgia Tech, the University of Tokyo and Microsoft Research have developed a novel method to rapidly and cheaply make electrical circuits by printing them with commodity inkjet printers and off-the-shelf materials. For about $300 in equipment costs, anyone can produce working electrical circuits in the 60 seconds it takes to print them.
