Product of the Week: SharkStopper

September 12, 2014
3d-innovations.com

As a company that is located in Hawaii we have a special interest in ocean related products. We recently came across the SharkStopper on Kickstarter and were intrigued by the technology and the fact that this product uses a multi-patented design to repel sharks without harming them.

“SharkStopper was founded on the belief that people deserve the ability to be protected from sharks when enjoying the open waters – in the most humane, green and civilized way possible.”

shark_stopper

We found that technology behind the SharkStopper to be ingenious. “It is widely agreed in the scientific community that killer whales, sharks’ main predator, communicate using a variety of complex sounds. The sounds emitted by SharkStopper emulate the sounds of killer whales in conjunction with our patented frequency overlay. Our frequency, combined with sharks’ natural fear of their main predator, keeps the sharks at a safe distance.”

If you are an open water enthusiast you are going to want to learn more about this product and its innovative design.

Learn more about the SkarStopper through the Kickstarter campaign, the official website, Facebook and Twitter. (*The Kickstarter campaign ends October 4th.)

Product of the Week: VIER Bike Lock

August 22, 2014
3d-innovations.com

The number one incentive for bike theft is an unlocked bike.

VIER is a compact high security bike lock with an innovative design. These days it seems like more people are opting to use their bike as a primary or secondary mode of transportation, and you definitely want to keep your bike secure when you are away from it. This lock has a great design, exceptional functionality and is compact and discrete (when packed away).

vierVIER’S unique design features two locking bodies that interlock with two straight shackle sections. You get all the security of a U-Lock but in a convenient compact form.

“Our main goal was to design a lock with the same level of security as a U-lock but in a compact form. VIER will protect your bike against lock picking, prying, hacksaws and bolt cutters.”

“Our lock has been tested at 1.5 tons of pull strength, which makes most manual means of breaking the lock dang tough. Most bike thieves target bikes that are unlocked or locked up with cable or chain locks that take seconds to cut. On the most part high quality U-locks are just too much work but given the right opportunity any bike is at risk. We recommend using the VIER lock and a cable for wheels and other items and park your bike in well lit high traffic areas.”

Visit the VIER Kickstarter campaign or learn more about the company on their website. VIER is also on Facebook!

Gartner’s Hype Cycle For 3D Printing Predicts Continued Prototyping Acceleration

August 20, 2014
3d-innovations.com

Gartner’s Hype Cycle for 3D Printing provides a keen insight into the current state of additive manufacturing and what the future may look like for the technology. According to the research collected and analyzed by Gartner, 3D printing for prototyping will continue to accelerate through all industries over the next two years. It is also predicting that the next major adoption of the technology will be in enterprise and medical applications over the next two to five years (we are already seeing the technology ramp up in both sectors).

From Gartner’s report:

3D printing and its uses continue to evolve rapidly in response to hype, greater visibility and, more importantly, demand. Naturally, some technologies are maturing faster than others and will be widely available in just a few years. In fact, some are already in general use. An example is 3D printing for prototyping, which has been the mainstay of the 3D printing industry since its inception.

 
“3D prototyping enables organizations to reduce or mitigate the risks associated with the design, form and functionality of products in research and development programs. It may also be used to support new manufacturing processes, and can reduce new product development schedules,” said Mr. Basiliere.

Product of the Week: Sense

August 15, 2014
3d-innovations.com

senseWe all have those morning where we wake up from a restful nights sleep ready to tackle the day, but we also experience mornings where we are completely groggy and reaching for that extra cup of coffee. Sense is a simple system that is working to help track and monitor your sleep behavior while reinventing your alarm.

“Sense is the first system that combines the insight of your sleep patterns with the data of the environment in your bedroom, including noise, light, temperature, humidity and particles in the air. With Sense’s Smart Alarm, it can even wake you up in the morning at the right point in your sleep cycle, to avoid that groggy feeling we all hate so much. All easily available via our iPhone and Android applications.”

As an engineering and design company we really appreciate the aesthetics of Sense. If you watch the company video on Kickstarter you will see the different design iterations (yes, 3D printing was involved!).

Check out the Sense Kickstarter campaign, the official website or learn more on Facebook and Twitter.

Mediabistro Announces Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in Hong Kong to Shed Light on the Impacts of 3D Printing Across Industries; Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates to Keynote

3D Printing ExpoMediabistro Inc.  and 3DPrintingIndustry.com are hosting Hong Kong’s first significant tradeshow about 3D printing, the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, on August 26 – 27, 2014. With 3D printing rapidly picking up pace in the industry, both in terms of its development and adoption, Mediabistro has invited the brightest and most prominent industry leaders from around the world to converge in Hong Kong to share their views on the future of the technology, as well as strategies to succeed in the upcoming third industrial revolution.

“3D printing was invented quite some time ago, but due to the printers’ limited capabilities and the high costs associated with 3D printing during the technology’s infancy, it wasn’t really adopted or used extensively – until recently,” said Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Mediabistro Inc. “Looking at how fast the 3D printing technology is currently developing, I think it’s only a matter of time until 3D printing completely revolutionizes all aspects of manufacturing. Hong Kong, being the gateway city to the world’s capital of manufacturing – China, is one of the most suitable locations for us to host Inside 3D Printing. If anyone wants to ride this upcoming economic boom, this conference and exposition is something not to be missed.”

T3D printing expohe two-day event, organized by Mediabistro, consists of 18 seminars covering topics from aerospace, art, and bioprinting to the makers revolution, start-ups of all kinds, and more. Stratasys, the Platinum Sponsor for the event, will be hosting the morning keynote session on August 27. The keynote speakers participating in the conference include Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President, Wohlers Associates, Inc.; Nave Rachman, Technical Director, Stratasys Asia Pacific & Japan; and Michele Marchesan, Chief Opportunity Officer, 3D Systems.

Wohlers will host the opening keynote titled “The Next Frontier in 3D Printing.” Working as a consultant for many corporations in different industries, Wohlers will share his views on where the 3D printing technology is headed based on his extensive experience and professional background.

3D printing expoRachman’s day 2 morning keynote is titled “Manufactory Application in 3D Printing: Direct
Digital Manufacturing (DDM).” He will explain how traditional manufacturing tools have successfully been replaced by FDM technology. Later in the day, Marchesan will highlight key trends and share advanced manufacturing initiatives during the afternoon keynote titled “Manufacturing the Future.”

In addition to an impressive lineup of speakers, the event will also feature Hong Kong’s largest exhibition related to 3D printing. If your company is interested in sponsoring or exhibiting, contact us at 3dprinting.sponsors@mediabistro.com.
