Engineering Newswire 61: Cyborg Cockroaches Map Collapsed Buildings
Today on Engineering Newswire, we’re designing touch-free interfaces, 3D printing rockets to carry nanosat satellites, swarming collapsed buildings with cyborg cockroaches, and once again trying to answer, “what women want.” This episode features:
- Touch-Free Interfaces: A team of researchers at the University of Bristol have developed a new system that provides a touch-free technology interface with feedback.
- Robots in Disguise: Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed software that uses a swarm of insect cyborgs to map collapsed buildings.
- What Women Want: University of Delaware researchers are taking on one of the most perplexing problems to ever hit man kind … what's going on inside a woman's mind.
- 3D-Printed Rocket Engine: Students at the University of California, San Diego have tested a 3D-printed rocket engine made out of metal. According to the University, this is the first time a university has produced a 3D-printed liquid fueled metal rocket engine.
