Costs for a fibre based Gigabit Society significant but achievable
FTTH Conference, Marseille, 16 February 2017: The FTTH Council Europe made public the first results of its updated study on the cost of deploying FTTH throughout the EU showing that the outstanding costs of full fibre coverage in the EU are €156 billion as input to the ongoing legislative debate on the proposal for a European Electronic Communications Code.

Industry-leading Cybersecurity and IoT Experts Form IoT Cybersecurity Alliance
AT&T*, IBM, Nokia, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec and Trustonic are joining forces to innovate in the security space. They’ll use their combined expertise to help tackle today’s top Internet of Things (IoT) security challenges.
This IoT Cybersecurity Alliance combines industry-leading security providers and IoT experts. The group will research and raise awareness of ways to better secure the IoT ecosystem.
As the number and kinds of connected devices multiply, so have the security risks. In the past 3 years, AT&T has seen a 3,198% increase in attackers scanning for vulnerabilities in IoT devices. Continue reading “Industry-leading Cybersecurity and IoT Experts Form IoT Cybersecurity Alliance”
There are basically two ways to go about making multi-material objects with photopolymer resin-based 3D printing processes. One is based on material science and uses inkjet 3D printing technologies, such as Stratasys’ Polyjet and 3D Systems’ MJM, to release and instantly cure different materials in the same print job.

Imagine printing out molecules that can respond to their surroundings. A research project at the University of Washington merges custom chemistry and 3-D printing. Scientists created a bone-shaped plastic tab that turns purple under stretching, offering an easy way to record the force on an object.

A team of students at the National Taiwan University have developed a “smart bandage” they call the BioScope which amps up the functionality of the Band-Aid to unheard of levels. Continue reading “The Band-Aid of the Future — NTU Creates the 3D Printed BioScope”
A paper presented at the prestigious IEEE International Solid States Circuits Conference in 2011 caused more than a little stir in the electronics industry. Researchers from the Belgian nanotech research center Imec described how they inkjet-printed a 3,381-transistor logic circuit made out of plastic. Continue reading “3D printed electronics for the Internet of Things”
If you think about how traditional manufacturing methods work, you take a block of something and mill away, or subtract, the surfaces until you have a finished product. With 3D printing, you do the opposite, adding layers of plastic or metal or ceramic (or one of many other materials) until you build a product with little waste. Continue reading “GE Direct Write: 3D Inking Intelligent Sensors (VIDEO)”
Imagine a time in the future when communication is not done through verbal speech, perhaps not even with hand motions or facial expressions. Imagine a time when we can speak to one another, no matter what our native languages are, via signals that our brains send to each other.

Intel and Trossen Robotics are aiming to make it actually happen with the 3D-printed Jimmy powered by the chip firm’s new Edison development board. Continue reading “Meet Jimmy, open source 3D Printed Robot (VIDEO)”
Most of the parts or products created with a 3D printer are not “thinking” products or parts that have a brain, or a sensor. In a recent visit to GE, the Global Research team took me through a number of new concepts and technologies that they are developing. One of the most interesting is one they call: Direct Write. This development would allow you to create more intelligent 3D printed parts — such as sensors. Continue reading “GE Direct Write: 3D Inking Intelligent Sensors (VIDEO)”
