Nasa's Mars Habitat Challenge Has a Finalist!


If you haven't heard about this yet, below is Nasa's info on the challenge.

NASA's Centennial Challenges: 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge

About the Challenge

NASA and its partners are holding a $2.5 million competition to build a 3-D printed habitat for deep space exploration, including the agency’s journey to Mars. The multi-phase challenge is designed to advance the construction technology needed to create sustainable housing solutions for Earth and beyond.

Phase 1 of the competition ran through Sept. 27, 2015. This phase, a $50,000 design competition, called on participants to develop state-of-the-art architectural concepts that take advantage of the unique capabilities 3-D printing offers. The top 30 submissions were judged, and prize money was awarded at the 2015 World Maker Faire in New York.

Phase 2 is now open and challenges competitors to demonstrate a recycling system that can create structural components using terrestrial and space-based materials and recyclables.

Phase 3, which is currently under development, will focus on fabrication of complete habitats and will follow completion of Phase 2.

With that said, check out the video below of the First Place finalist chosen for this habitat. It looks like some pretty amazing tech.

Imagineering Research & Development Robots


I've got to hand to the people at Walt Disney's Imagineering, they are breaking some pretty incredible ground with these new robots. If you aren't familiar with them; Imagineering Research and Development are responsible for designing and engineering all of the magic in Walt Disney theme parks, rides and attractions among other things.


When I lived in Burbank, Ca many years ago, I knew a guy that worked in this department and he was telling me about some of the projects they had in the works and at that time it was astounding.

Check out the video below of these humanoid robots in action.
