Neil Gershenfeld, director of the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms, and Robert Atkinson, founder and president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, discuss the potential role of localized 3-D printing in manufacturing.
A new method for producing multiple-perspective 3-D images could prove more practical in the short term than holography.
A three-week old robot at the MIT Media Lab is weaving a cocoon-like structure with a little programming help from humans. Eventually it will be autonomous.
Inspired by a toy, the ‘buckliball’ — a collapsible structure fabricated from a single piece of material — represents a new class of 3-D, origami-like structures.
