Shape-Shifting Robots Possible Reality in Near Future

Engineers will be interested in a new discovery from researchers at North Carolina State. Straight from the movie series, Terminator, liquid metals are now a reality. The “T-1000” liquid metal shape-shifting assassin may soon be a reality as well. The self-propulsion and shape-shifting ...

3D Printing Inspires Future Engineers

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School in New York City has recently entered the 3D printing revolution by introducing 3D design into their science curriculum as early as first grade.  This forward thinking school has recognized the impact that this rapidly evolving technology will have on ...

New Color Shifting Material May Save Lives by Detecting Defects

Engineers from the University of California at Berkeley have designed a material that changes colors similar to the skin of a chameleon. The change in colors occurs when the material is bent or flexed. Silicon film is engraved with microscopic color design that will reflect a selected range of colo ...

Innovative Engineers Connect the World With Bridges

The Navajo Bridge crosses the Colorao River in Arizona at the Majestic Marble Canyon. This is the only bridge to cross the Grand Canyon for approximately 600 miles. The bridge links travelers to Southern Utah and to the Arizona strip region lying north of the Colorado River. Technologically advance ...
