          Does the Magic Leap One, and the Promise AR, Matter to Higher Ed?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Magic Leap augmented reality (AR) headset is finally available. (If you live in a few select cities). After years of hype, the Florida startup that has raised $2.3 billion in capital (with Google being a big investor), is finally releasing its first device.

The cost is $2,295. The device is intended mostly for developers who might write applications for what Magic Leap hopes will be a new augmented reality ecosystem.

Does any of this matter to higher ed?

If you don’t know about Magic Leap, then congratulations. Avoiding the tech hype machine is an accomplishment.

The basic story is that Magic Leap, the company, has done a masterful job of raising money and of stoking public interest.  Up until this week, they had not released any product.  In interviews and slick demos, Magic Leap promised to make a giant leap in augmented (or mixed) reality.

AR is different from virtual reality (VR), in that the 3D digital images are superimposed on the real world.  An existing AR (or mixed-reality) device is the HoloLens from Microsoft, which came out in 2016.

Maybe your school has been playing with a HoloLens rig?  There has certainly been interest in higher education about how augmented reality may aid instruction in hands-on and lab courses.  

Getting Magic One Leap devices into hands of higher ed people would be great. I’d love the opportunity to experiment with the technology. To figure out what sorts of learning apps could be developed. It would be cool to play around with extending hands-on lab assignments and tactile learning to online education.

So by all means, I hope that Magic Leap is set to do some higher ed outreach. Magic Leap, if you are listening, please send one to Hanover, NH.

What I also very much hope is that all of us commit to curb our augmented reality enthusiasm.

Let’s make a pact.  We should all stipulate up-front and in public that AR will not, in the end, be very important for higher education.

  • Augmented reality is not going to improve access to higher education.
  • Augmented reality is not going to do that much to advance learning.
  • Augmented reality is not going to lower the costs of higher education.

What AR might do in the future, and that future may be at least a decade off, is add one more sometimes useful tool to our teaching and learning toolkit.

Augmented reality, if ever integrated into teaching and learning (and again I say we are decade away from this possibility), is more likely to increase higher education costs than to lower them.  This is because new technologies get layered on top of old ways of doing things.

In the next few years I predict that we will see a bunch of edtech startups with AR at the center of their business plans. Most of these will fail. Don’t invest in them.

We will also see established edtech companies and publishers roll out splashy AR programs.  These initiatives will also have little impact on higher ed. Don’t get too excited by them. 

The Magic Leap One is interesting.  The Microsoft HoloLens is interesting.  Augmented reality (AR), mixed-reality (MR), and virtual reality (VR) are all cool.  So are 3D printers.  And mobile education apps.  None of these technologies will be very important for higher education.

Care to argue the other side of the higher education / AR debate?

Will my predictions that augmented reality will be largely inconsequential for higher education end up looking like Ken Olsen’s (the founder of Digital Equipment Corporation), who said in 1977 that:

"There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.”

Or remember when Microsoft’s then CEO Steve Ballmer said in 2007 that,

"There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share.”

I don’t think that AR, MR, or VR will end up mattering all that much for higher education - but maybe I’ll be wrong.

Full instructions including pictures will be uploaded soon.

Launches and awards:

I have had 4 successful lift-offs and recovers with zero failures so far. The first two were test launches to verify the strength of the model and the reuseability, it passed with flying colors. The 3rd launch was at a Technology Student Association regional conference where it received 1st place for student built rockets. The 4th and most recent launch was at the Technology Student Association state conference where it swept the field, receiving 1st place out of dozens of student built rockets and high praise by the judges (one said I should publish it). The model has been highly successful and flies with no gyrations, separates effortlessly, and lands gently under my handmade parachute.

I also, highly recommend using Hatchbox PLA. It may cost a bit more but it’s 100% worth it. Seriously.

Here's what is working really well with Hatchbox PLA: 
TEMP: 195 (40-55 for bed depending on season) 
SPEED: 60 mms 
RETRACTION DISTANCE: 0.80 
RETRACTION SOPEED: 30 
INFILL: 15% (for tiles) 
TOP SOLID LAYERS: 7 
BOTTOM SOLID LAYERS: 4

As technology evolves, technologists across disciplines and industries are sharing knowledge and research, leading to even more discoveries and cross-practice convergence.

At the nexus of this evolution is the Internet of Things. Its ubiquity may receive the most attention in consumer and residential products, but the validation of the ability to change things for the better is evidenced most strongly in Connected Industry. But, smart consumer devices are just starting to catch up. Add artificial intelligence to the mix and things really start getting interesting:

EVENTS
0975 "The Sun was eclipsed . . . . Some people say that it was entirely total. During the hours mao and ch'en (some time between 5 and 9 h) it was all gone. It was the colour of ink and without light. All the birds flew about in confusion and the various stars were all visible. There was a general amnesty (on account of the eclipse)." From: Nihon Kiryaku. "At the hour ch'en (7-9 h), the Sun was eclipsed; it was completely total. All under heaven became entirely dark and the stars were all vis ible."
From: Fuso Ryakki. "The Sun was eclipsed; it was all gone. It was like ink and without light. The stars were all visible (or: stars were visible in the daytime)." From: Hyaku Rensho. These three Japanese quotations refer to a total solar eclipse of 9 August AD 975. Quoted in Historical Eclipses and Earth's Rotation, by F Richard Stephenson, Cambridge University Press, 1997, pages 267 and 268. *NSEC

1207 An educational institution is founded for the study of the works of Bhaskara II, an Indian mathematician and astronomer.*VFR
Bhaskara II was rightly achieved an outstanding reputation for his remarkable contribution. In 1207 an educational institution was set up to study Bhaskaracharya's ("Bhaskara the teacher")works. A medieval inscription in an Indian temple reads: Triumphant is the illustrious Bhaskaracharya whose feats are revered by both the wise and the learned. A poet endowed with fame and religious merit, he is like the crest on a peacock. It is from this quotation that the title of Joseph's book comes. *SAU


1654 Fermat to Carcavi "Monsieur, I was overjoyed to have had the same thoughts as those of M. Pascal, for I greatly admire his genius and I believe him to be capable of solving any problem he attempts. The friendship he offers is so dear to me and so precious that I shall not scruple to take advantage of it in publishing an edition of my Treatises. If it does not shock you, you could both help in bringing out this edition, and I suggest that you should be the editors: you could clarify or augment what seems too brief and thus relieve me of a care which my work prevents me from taking. I would like this volume to appear without my name even, leaving to you the choice of designation which would indicate the author, whom you could qualify simply as a friend." *York Univ Hist of Stats.

1658 Simon Douw obtains a patent for a pendulum clock that will draw Huygen’s attack in Horologium. “Today, no clock by Simon Douw is known; I find that most curious, it is as if he has been excised from history, deliberately. Dutch Court papers described Douw as "City clockmaker of Rotterdam... a master in the art of great tower, domestic or office clocks", ("en meester in de kunst van groote Toorn, Camer ofte Comptoirwerken"). Yet his mechanical insights. his escapement, also his drive mechanisms, are best, and now only, revealed by his Patent Grant on August 9th, 1658, and by the evidence and judgement in a claim and counterclaim started in the Provinces of Holland and West Friesland, but then referred to the Court of The Netherlands in October 1658, with a Judgement by Consent on December 5th, 1658. And that case went entirely in Douw's favour, against the highly favoured joint Complainants Huygens and Coster.
In itself, that is remarkable. Huygens, the Noble patrician, the most famous Dutch scientist, and the self-professed inventor of the pendulum clock, who had in the course of this trial published "Horologium", was forced by the judges to settle the case rather than face unfavourable verdict; also to concede Consent; also one-third Royalties to Douw. It would have been a crushing humiliation for Huygens, the seed of his libels. Subsequently, the Lower Court of Holland, Zeeland and Friesland confirmed to Douw, on December 16th and 19th 1658, their Upper Court's judgement by consent”. * From Keith Piggott

1895 Percival Lowell, convinced about intelligent beings on Mars, published an article in The Atlantic Monthly about how lucky they are to have low gravity. "LUCK OF THE BEING WHO LIVES ON MARS; He Can Do More Work Much More Easily than Man on Earth." *HT Paul Halpern‏ @phalpern

BIRTHS

1537 Franciscus Barocius (9 August 1537 – 23 November 1604) born. In 1560 he published the first important translation of Proclus’ commentary on the first book of Euclid’s Elements. In 1587 he was brought before the Inquisition on charges of sorcery, more particularly of having caused a torrential rainstorm in Crete. *VFR

1602 Gilles de Roberval (August 9, 1602 – October 27, 1675)(His date of birth is given as 8th, 9th and 10th in various sources) was a French scientist who developed powerful methods in the early study of integration.*SAU Roberval was one of those mathematicians who, just before the invention of the infinitesimal calculus, occupied their attention with problems which are only soluble, or can be most easily solved, by some method involving limits or infinitesimals, which would today be solved by calculus. He worked on the quadrature of surfaces and the cubature of solids, which he accomplished, in some of the simpler cases, by an original method which he called the "Method of Indivisibles"; but he lost much of the credit of the discovery as he kept his method for his own use, while Bonaventura Cavalieri published a similar method which he independently invented.
Another of Roberval’s discoveries was a very general method of drawing tangents, by considering a curve as described by a moving point whose motion is the resultant of several simpler motions. (The limacon was named by Roberval in 1650 when he used it as an example of his methods of drawing tangents.)
He also discovered a method of deriving one curve from another, by means of which finite areas can be obtained equal to the areas between certain curves and their asymptotes. To these curves, which were also applied to effect some quadratures, Evangelista Torricelli gave the name "Robervallian lines."
(He also wrote a) work on the system of the universe, in which he supports the Copernican heliocentric system and attributes a mutual attraction to all particles of matter. *Wik
 I was recently informed (2018) by Vincent Panteloni that in France, the balance scale, "We refer to such a scale by saying 'une balance de Roberval'".

1757 Thomas Telford (9 August 1757 Glendinning, Westerkirk, Eskdale, Dumfriesshire, Scotland - 2 September 1834 (aged 77) 24 Abingdon Street, Westminster, London) He is the founder of modern bridge construction, his crowning achievement being the Menai suspension bridge in Wales. Do you know the shape of the cables on a suspension bridge? *VFR

1776 Count Amedeo Avogadro (9 August 1776, Turin, Piedmont – 9 July 1856) Italian chemist and physicist who found that at the same temperature and pressure equal volumes of all perfect gases contain the same number of particles, known as Avogadro's Law (1811) leading to the Avogadro's constant being 6.022 x 1023 units per mole of a substance. He realized the particules could be either atoms, or more often, combinations of atoms, for which he coined the word "molecule." This explained Gay-Lussac's law of combining volumes (1809). Further, Avogadro determined from the electrolysis of water that it contained molecules formed from two hydrogen atoms for each atom of oxygen, by which the individual oxygen atom was 16 times heavier than one hydrogen atom (not 8 times as suggested earlier by Dalton.) The Italian, Romano Amadeo Carlo Avogadro, had suggested [in 1811] that all gases have the same number of molecules in a given volume. Loschmidt figured out [in 1865] how many molecules that would be. John D. Cook suggested that maybe it should be called Loschmidt's constant, and pointed out three interesting coincidences involving Avogadro's Constant:
NA is approximately 24! (i.e., 24 factorial.)
The mass of the earth is approximately 10 NA kilograms.
The number of stars in the observable universe is 0.5 NA.
*John D. Cook, The Endeavour Blog

1819 Jonathan Homer Lane (August 9, 1819, Geneseo, New York – May 3, 1880, Washington D.C.) U.S. astrophysicist who was the first to investigate mathematically the Sun as a gaseous body. His work demonstrated the interrelationships of pressure, temperature, and density inside the Sun and was fundamental to the emergence of modern theories of stellar evolution.*TIS

1911 William Alfred "Willie" Fowler (August 9, 1911 – March 14, 1995)
American astrophysicist. He should not be confused with the British astronomer Alfred Fowler.
Fowler won the Henry Norris Russell Lectureship of the American Astronomical Society in 1963, the Eddington Medal in 1978, the Bruce Medal in 1979, and the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1983 for his theoretical and experimental studies of the nuclear reactions of importance in the formation of the chemical elements in the universe (shared with Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar). *TIA

1919 Leona Woods (August 9, 1919 – November 10, 1986), later known as Leona Woods Marshall and Leona Woods Marshall Libby, was an American physicist who helped build the first nuclear reactor and the first atomic bomb.
At age 23, she was the youngest and only female member of the team which built and experimented with the world's first nuclear reactor (then called a pile ), Chicago Pile-1, in a project led by her mentor Enrico Fermi. In particular, Woods was instrumental in the construction and then utilization of geiger counters for analysis during experimentation. She was the only woman present when the reactor went critical. She worked with Fermi on the Manhattan Project, and, together with her first husband John Marshall, she subsequently helped solve the problem of xenon poisoning at the Hanford plutonium production site, and supervised the construction and operation of Hanford's plutonium production reactors.
After the war, she became a fellow at Fermi's Institute for Nuclear Studies. She later worked at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey, the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and New York University, where she became a professor in 1962. Her research involved high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology. In 1966 she divorced Marshall and married Nobel laureate Willard Libby. She became a professor at the University of Colorado, and a staff member at RAND Corporation. In later life she became interested in ecological and environmental issues, and she devised a method of using the isotope ratios in tree rings to study climate change. She was a strong advocate of food irradiation as a means of killing harmful bacteria. *Wik

1927 Marvin Minsky (August 9, 1927 - January 24, 2016 (aged 88)) Biochemist and the founder of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Project. Marvin Minsky has made many contributions to AI, cognitive psychology, mathematics, computational linguistics, robotics, and optics. He holds several patents, including those for the first neural-network simulator (SNARC, 1951), the first head-mounted graphical display, the first confocal scanning microscope, and the LOGO "turtle" device. His other inventions include mechanical hands and the "Muse" synthesizer for musical variations (with E. Fredkin). In recent years he has worked chiefly on imparting to machines the human capacity for commonsense reasoning. *TIS He died in Boston of a cerebral hemorrhage .

1940 Linda Goldway Keen (8 August 1940- ) In addition to studying Riemann surfaces, Keen has worked in hyperbolic geometry, Kleinian groups and Fuchsian groups, complex analysis, and hyperbolic dynamics. In the field of hyperbolic geometry, she is known for the Collar lemma.
Keen has worked at the Institute for Advanced Study, Hunter College, University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, Boston University, Princeton University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as at various mathematical institutes in Europe and South America. After her initial appointment in 1965, in 1974 Keen was promoted to Full Professor at Lehman College and the CUNY Graduate Center.
Keen served as president of the Association for Women in Mathematics during 1985-1986 and as vice-president of the American Mathematical Society during 1992-1995. She served on the Board of Trustees of the American Mathematical Society from 1999-2009 and as Associate Treasurer from 2009-2011. In 1975, she presented an AMS invited address and in 1989 she presented an MAA joint invited address. In 1993 she was selected as a Noether Lecturer. *Wik

1943 Jacques Lewiner, (9 August, 1943 - ) is a French physicist and inventor. He is Professor and Honorary Scientific Director of École supérieure de physique et de chimie industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI ParisTech).
His works have been devoted to electrical insulators and particularly electrets, instrumentation and sensors, for instance in medical imaging, or on the improvement of telecommunication networks.

DEATHS

1932 John Charles Fields died (May 14, 1863 - August 9, 1932). In his will he left funds for an international medal for contributions to mathematics. The International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich in 1932 adopted the proposal, and the first Fields Medals were awarded at the Oslo Congress in 1936 to Lars Ahlfors, age 29 of Harvard, and Jesse Douglas, age 39 of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. *VFR It became the most prestigious award for mathematicians, often referred to as the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for mathematicians. As a professor at the University of Toronto, he had worked to bring the International Congress of Mathematicians to Toronto (1924). The Congress was so successful that afterward there was a surplus of about\( $2,500\) which Fields, as chairman of the organizing committee, proposed be used to fund two medals to be awarded at each of future Congresses. This was approved on 24 Feb 1931. He died the following year, leaving \($47,000\) as additional funding for the medals, which have been awarded since 1936.*TIS


1969 Cecil Frank Powell (5 December 1903 – 9 August 1969) British physicist and winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1950 for his development of the photographic method of studying nuclear processes and for the resulting discovery of the pion (pi-meson), a heavy subatomic particle. The pion proved to be the hypothetical particle proposed in 1935 by Yukawa Hideki of Japan in his theory.*TIS

1994 Helena Rasiowa (June 20, 1917 – August 9, 1994) worked in algebraic logic and the mathematical foundations of computer science.*SAU

2006 James Alfred Van Allen (September 7, 1914 – August 9, 2006) American physicist who discovered the Earth's magnetosphere, two toroidal zones of radiation due to trapped charged particles encircling the Earth (also known as the Van Allen radiation belts). During WWII he gained experience miniaturizing electronics, such as in the proximity fuse of a missile. After the war, he studied cosmic radiation, taking advantage of the unused German stock of V2 rockets launched into the outer regions of the atmosphere, carrying research devices using radio to relay back the data gathered. He was also involved in the early U.S. space program, and he had radiation measuring instruments on the first U.S. satellite, Explorer 1, launched 31 Jan 1958 with follow-up carried out by satellites Explorer 3 and 4 later the same year.*TIS

2007 Graham Robert Allan (August 13, 1936 Southgate, London - August 9, 2007 (aged 70)) was an English mathematician, specializing in Banach algebras. He was a reader in functional analysis and vice-master of Churchill College at Cambridge University. *Wik

Biopiracy, Transforming Fashion, Designing the Impossible by Iris Van Herpen, Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, ON

Excerpt from irisvanherpen.com:

BIOPIRACY - In the recent past, patents on our genes have been purchased. Are we still the sole proprietor of our bodies? From this question arises a sense of arrested freedom in one's most intimate, solitary state. A mix of ready-to-wear and couture pieces is presented with artist Lawrence Malstaf -who specializes in the interaction between biology and physicality.

Models float in the air, embryonic, seemingly weightless and in a meditative suspended animation.

Metamorphosis is suggested through intricate enmeshing of materials. Imprisoned fire opal beads gleam through lacerated weaves, artificial fibers compose voluminous, architectural structures, the organic ripple of light on water.

A 3D printing collaboration with Julia Koerner fuses the artisanal with the technical to create a kinetic dress which dances as it amplifies bodily movement. Molded boots in collaboration with United Nude accelerate and reconfigure the silhouette.

Each environmentally friendly chair takes 24 hours to create.

Upstart Spanish designer Nagami partnered this year with the prolific firm Zaha Hadid Architects on a pair of chairs reminiscent of coral reefs that stretch the potential of 3D printing beyond small, simple products to dazzling works of art. ZHA’s Rise and Bow chairs (which each sell for approximately $23,000) were manufactured by Nagami’s proprietary software, which translates designs into digital models and then analyzes them for manufacturing feasibility, flagging possible issues such as surfaces that might not be stable. Once the models were finalized, robotic arms printed the pieces in biodegradable, plant-based plastic. The process dramatically reduces the environmental toll of producing high-end furniture, which typically involves parts shipped from all over the world. Even as Nagami, founded in 2016 in the ancient city of Ávila, expands its own line of furniture, cofounder Manuel Jiménez García plans to license software so that other furniture makers can deploy it in their own warehouses. “In the future, manufacturing will be reduced to a cheap, automated process,” he says. “The code will be all that matters.”

          How 3d Printing impacting MAnufacturing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On a different note, 3D printing has opened up new opportunities for production, factory maintenance, and R&D, since acquiring spares for a machine has never been easier. 3D printing is a technology with a mixed impression, but most people are noticing that the pros will outweigh the cons.



3D Printing in R&D

Research and development departments require prototypes, often times, a lot of them. In a typical setup, prototypes are handcrafted or made from molds, which takes up a lot of the designer’s precious time. Using 3D printed prototypes, designers are able to save both time and money.

Prodrive is a company that manufactures equipment and technologies related to motorsports, and they have incorporated using 3D printing for R&D for a long time now. Since 2009, Prodrive has been using 3D printing to create automobile models with Prodrive goodies installed providing the team with a better idea of the project in its entirety.  It also gave the team a physical model to examine, not just a computer rendering. Many other companies have began seeing the potential of 3D printing models, even Aston Martin goes along the same path when it comes to an effective R&D strategy planning.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing seems to be quite the buzzword in today's manufacturing industry. The usual manufacturing process is mostly a subtractive process, where the raw material gets wasted and reused over and over again. For example, in a car factory sheet metal is cut and shaped into specific body parts and leftover metal is later melted back down and formed into metal plates again before they can be reused for any further processes.

On the other hand, 3D printing is a very precise manufacturing process. Whatever is designed is  3D-printed using the raw materials, no cutting down, no leftover material, no need to reprocess the materials. Therefore, it’s only an additive process and not subtractive. By being an additive process, 3D manufacturing reduces material waste, as well as processing time and required equipment.

3D Printing Benefits the Environment

Most of the countries in the world now have very bold and strict environmental laws for industry to protect the community around them, as well as nature in general. By using additive manufacturing strategy, 3D printing can actively contribute to lesser carbon emission. Many of the aerospace manufacturers now use 3D printing to produce modules that require precise cut and structural uniformity. By doing so, they reduce wasting raw material and eventually the CO2 emission to nature is reduced by a significant amount. Some 3D printers can actually use recycled wood, reducing the environmental effect of what little waste does occur.

It was May 2013 when Cody Wilson went public with his 3D-printed handgun. An online video showed the crude plastic object fixed on top of a tripod. The trigger was pulled from a distance by someone pulling a long piece of string. Since that first successful firing, 3D printed guns and the debate around them has come a long way. The design for Cody Wilson’s plastic firearm, dubbed the ‘Liberator’ has been downloaded from the internet nearly 100,000 times. The US government has tried to block its publication. But is the cat already out of the bag? Does the 3D printing revolution mean that people anywhere can print anything they want, as long as they get their hands on the right design?

VIDEO: Wilhelmsen drone project gets Singapore government funding

AUGUST 9, 2018 — Wilhelmsen Ships Service has been selected to help develop the future Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) regulatory framework for Singapore and will receive dedicated funding for its shore-to-ship drone delivery project.

Wilhelmsen Ships Service is one of only four companies to have received the funding, following a Call-For-Proposal (CFP) by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Ministry of Transport. The CFP aims to support the development of systems and technologies to enable innovations within the wide-ranging use of UAS. The maximum funding available for each project is SGD1.5 million, or up to 50% of the total project qualified costs.

Outlining the potential development of UAS for shore-to-ship deliveries, the winning proposal from Wilhelmsen Ships Service highlighted how UAS delivery could improve safety, productivity and efficiency.

With a quicker response rate and turnaround time compared to traditional launch boat, deliveries, Wilhelmsen believes delivery by UAS has the potential to lower shore-to-ship delivery costs by up to 90%, as well as removing the safety risks inherent with delivery via launch boat.

As we reported earlier (see story) Wilhelmsen Ships Service is currently working with Airbus’ Skyways on a pilot trial to deliver spare parts, documents, water test kits and 3D printed consumables to vessels at anchorage from Singapore port’s Marina South Pier. Beginning in Q3 2018, this will be the very first-time drone technology has been deployed in real port conditions, delivering parcels to vessels at anchorage.

Commenting on the award, Marius Johansen, Vice President Commercial, Ships Agency says, "Only weeks after announcing the Airbus partnership, this award almost feels a bit overwhelming. In itself it will be important for us to validate the use case of parcel delivery with drones, but it will also enable us to develop key technological solutions such as ship localization and precision landing, payload release system, light and reliable private 4G/LTE communications, onshore parcel station and an automated package delivery system”.

Working on a number of very different test business cases for the application of drones in the maritime environment, prior to identifying shore-to-ship deliveries as the most relevant and scalable for their business, Wilhelmsen Ships Agency says it saw the genuine potential of drone technology well ahead of their rivals.

Johansen says, “The award is something more than just financial support. It is another significant recognition of the work we are doing and without doubt places Wilhelmsen at the very top of the list of innovative players in the maritime industry.”


          Comment on Mechanical Issues For A Pi CNC by imqqmi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Every axis you add to the arm introduces errors caused by the length of the arm sections. The first gear train will have a large error at the end of the arm. The weight compounds the problem. Adding rigidity often also adds weight, however the first motor/gear train can be stationary and should be the most rigid and can be the heaviest, then progressively smaller and lighter for each section. 3D printed material is also not the most stiff material. Try to build it using aluminium for example. If you own a cnc router or mill you can make plates that interface between the sections. Using proper bearings (and used in the proper way) will also reduce compliance. Also, the sections are only supported by the motor. The dowel only gives support to one side which is no support at all basically. Usually you see u shaped couplings where the motor only supplies rotational forces. Try printing a U shaped part where there are bearings at the ends of the U. Use gears (V shaped to reduce backlash/compliance) or toothed belt to drive the shaft using a stepper motor. Use collars to lock the shaft between the upper and lower bearings. There are optical encoders you can add to the shaft for closed loop feedback or use end stop switches. It's also possible to use TMC2130 drivers that have StallGuard, so basically you can skip the end stops reducing complexity at the cost of a little accuracy. Another option is to use steel wires guided through the arm and put the motors in the base. You could use a corexy like setup.

In theory this fund is tailor made for me which paradoxically worries me. How could it blow up? What is its real risk of not minor under-performance but rather truly awful returns or even being wiped out? Too good to be true worries me. The comparison is 100% SP or it’s ilk in mind. So I am not talking about risk in that, but more LTC Fund type default risk. I really want to embrace sensible leverage though.


85% NTSX (returns of 60%/40% so you can retire if things go well)

5% gold (inflation protection and meltdown currency)

5% defensive (lead, gas masks, water purifiers etc.)

5% health (medicine, supplies etc.)



You could probably put the 3d printer in defensive and make parts for your SUV when it breaks down.



If treasuries go kaput NTSX will suffer but you will be well prepared!



I think the allocations are fine. You can always sell defensive and health at a premium in the chaos or keep them for your legacy!

          How to Make a "Hungry" Robot      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If you're old enough to remember Radio Shack (and shame on you if you're not!), you probably remember those old coin-eating robot piggybanks. You'd put a coin in its hand and it would “eat” it.

Sometimes, the best robots are less functional and more emotional. Asked why he made this project, creator Eunchan Park simply stated, “This is fun, makes me smile, and feels good.”

Here's how to build your own Hungry Robot using Arduino along with some open-source code and freely available 3D printing model files:

 

 

Parts List

Qty

Part

1

 Arduino Nano

1

 Adafruit infrared distance sensor

1

 PiMill MG90S Metal Gear Micro Servo

2

 Toy eyeballs

1

 Pack of self-locking white nylon cable zip ties

3

 Dupont female-to-female breadboard jumper wire ribbon cables

4

 uxcell Hexagon Socket Cap Head Self Tapping Screws Fasteners M  2x8mm

 

BUILD INSTRUCTIONS 

Arduino Setup:

First, we'll need to upload the source code to the Arduino board.

1.) Install Arduino IDE.

2.) Download the source code.

3.) Connect your Arduino to your PC via USB.

4.) Select the board, processor, and com port – Arduino Nano and ATmega328P (Old Bootloader).

5.) Find and select the emerging com port and click “Upload.”

 

3D Printing Parts:

1.) Download the 3D modeling files from Thingiverse.*

*For each part, the brim setting needs to be at least 1mm.

 

Circuit Assembly:

1.) All parts are connected using a female-to-female Dupont cable. You'll need to cut and re-wire the cable manually to save space inside the robot. To do this, strip the cables and then twist the wires together and tape them.

2.) The servo motor uses three pins. Vcc and GND is essential and a PWM pin must also be allocated with the servo motor. In this project, pin 12 is used.

3.) The infrared sensor also uses three wires. The Arduino requires an analog input to detect objects at a distance. In this project, A7 pin is allocated.

 

Hardware Assembly:

1.) To assemble the arms, use a screwdriver to connect the black horn from the servo motor to the the hand (printed with the hand.stl file).

2.) Next, attach the guide piece (guide.stl) behind the servo motor and place the servo motor inside the body (body.stl). Use a screwdriver to fix it in place.

3.) Place the infrared sensor into the body so that it is facing out of the long slot. Then, insert in the inner body “basket” (inner_body.stl).

4.) Affix the hand to the body by threading one cable tie from the inside out, then using another cable tie to hold everything in place. 

5.) Attach the head (head.stl) to the body using the same cable tie method. Lock the head in place to the body at the joint and thread a cable tie through.

6.) Now, connect the head and body using the link (link.stl). This is the most important part of the robot's body. Again, you'll want to use the cable tie method.

7.) Connect all of the wires to the Arduino board. Check the color, location, and pin numbers. The diagram below provides a helpful guide:

8.) Place the Arduino inside of the body and plug a USB cable into the Arduino through the hole at the bottom of the body.

9.) Once the Arduino and USB cable are in place, the bottom (bottom.stl) should snap right in place.

10.) Glue the toy eyeballs to the robot and paint/decorate it however you want. Your Hungry Robot is ready to eat whatever you put in its hands!

          How a street artist makes colorful murals out of yarn      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Not all all street art is spray paint and wheatpaste. London Kaye crochets large colorful murals out of yarn and ties them up to walls and fences. We spoke with Kaye in Brooklyn to watch how she creates her pieces and what is involved in the process. Following is a transcript of the video.

London Kaye: My name is London Kaye, and I'm a street artist here in Brooklyn. Everything I make is made out of yarn.

Yarn bombing is when you take a piece of crochet or knit and you wrap it around something, usually outside.

I think it's great, because it takes that craft of your grandma that holds so much nostalgia and is almost reinventing it in a whole new way.

I started crocheting when I was 13, I sold scarves to my friends and girls at my dance studio when I was growing up. After I graduated college, I was working at Apple, 9-5 job, and knew there was more to life than selling computers.

So, I took one of my scarves I made and wrapped it around a tree outside of my house in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn and left it there. It started catching on, I haven't stopped since.

Coming up with a piece, it always starts with an idea, and I get inspiration from current events, things going on in pop culture, bright colors; anything that kind of interests me.

From there, sometimes, I'll draw it out, water down the shapes to the most basic shapes; from the sketch I crochet it, I glue it all together, and then I hang it up on the fence. I'll go through and tie each string up on the fence, cut the strings, take a photo and I'm out.

I usually put up my crocheted art on chain link fence. When I started out, I had no idea it would be such a perfect canvas, because it allows you to stretch and manipulate the yarn. I also love doing it out of a water pipe or unexpected objects that usually wouldn't see crocheted.

I like to mix a lot of different colors and textures together to create a bit more depth. I print my own crochet hooks on 3D printers, I actually just got a patent approved a few weeks ago.

My crochet art usually lasts about two weeks. It's not the weather that hurts the crochet. The yarn does very well in rain or snow, in the heat. It's usually people that take it, but I tell myself whoever takes it, loves it so much, they can't live without it, and that kind of keeps me going.

Out of the, probably 400 yarn bombs I've hung up, I've been stopped four times. I never got officially in trouble by the police and hopefully I'm going strong with that record.

Right from the start, people started reaching out, brands started reaching out to me, asking them to do marketing campaigns, advertising campaigns. A couple of my favorite brand collaborations I've done is: a capsule collection with Red Valentino, which is a fashion brand based out of Rome, and I got to do 14 different store windows around the world and open up two new stores and do a capsule collection of crochet clothes; dream.

I got to do a 25-foot by 50-foot billboard in Times Square for Miller Lite beer, all crocheted. I've worked on a Gap commercial crocheting a school bus. I've crocheted high heels for Sarah Jessica Parker.

My favorite piece is a crocheted dragon I put up, it was on 6th Avenue between 14th and 15th street and stretched for about 20 feet. It was shooting fire out of its mouth. When it got pulled down, the community came back with ribbons saying where's my dragon, who took my dragon and it was the first time I got to see, wow, this art really does affect the people that live here and see it every day.

Everybody has that connection to yarn, so no matter who it is, young, old, where they're from, they've seen crochet.

I just love bringing unexpected joy to people's day and I think that's what street art does.

I am a really big "[The] Amazing Race" fan, so I was at a sushi restaurant one night and I met the host of "The Amazing Race." We got to talking and somehow, I ended up on a season of "The Amazing Race." I came in third place. The crochet did not help at all, I was really hoping for, like, a crochet challenge, or a crochet challenge, or a crochet challenge. No.

All you need to build a brushless motor is a rotor loaded up with super powerful and very cheap magnets, and a few coils of wire. Now that PCBs are so cheap, the coils of wire are easily taken care of. A 3D printer and some eBay magnets finish off the rest. …read more


          Adventures in 3D Printing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Originally posted on: http://blog.sumon.net/cwilliams/archive/2017/02/13/235740.aspx

Background:  I have a Micro 3D Printer, which runs (usually headless) off an OctoPrint server, running on a Raspberry Pi 3.  I moved a few months ago and the whole setup sat in a box until this weekend.

I start setting everything up again. I'm not a Linux expert by any means, but this thing is relatively plug and play, when it works. Fire everything up... led lights come on, it’s running headless (no monitor or keyboard) but I think it’s booted ok. Off to a good start.

The OctoPrint server presents a nice web interface you can use to control your printer, so I try to connect from my desktop.  No luck. 

Drag out a monitor, hmm... VGA, ok... dig around and find a HDMI to VGA adapter. Takes a little bit because none of my stuff is organized (AT ALL) but I eventually find one. Need a keyboard too... off to the garage to dig through more boxes.

Eventually, I return, keyboard in hand. reboot the Pi again... lots of scrolling text, so far so good. I go to log in... hmm... crap. I seem to have forgotten my login and password.  Try a few things, no luck.

Eventually, a few Google searches reveal the default login and password which I hadn't changed, so now I'm logged in. do a quick ifconfig (the linux equivalent of ipconfig.exe) and it looks like I've got an IP address, but it's different than the one I bookmarked for OctoPrint. Ok that feels like progress.

Back to the desktop, change the ip address.  still no luck. Think... what's different?  New router. There's no way it's connecting, and the old IP was hardcoded.

So back to the Raspberry Pi. Shut it down, pull out the SD card so I can edit the network config file on my PC. Dig around in more boxes for an adapter. 

Uhoh... my main PC doesn't have a slot to read it. hmm... ok, looks like one of my other machines does, so I pop it in. Open the folder. It closes. *sigh* repeat this a couple times.  Apparently this adapter isnt any good.

Find ANOTHER adapter, pop it in... try again. Folder stays open this time. ok good, open up the network config file and sure enough, the wifi info is wrong. change it to my new router, update the password, close it up. Stick the card back in the pi, boot it up… wait, wait… log in.  Try hitting it from my desktop. no luck.

hmmm… think think, I sorta recall something about the server needing to be on the subnet as whatever machine is hitting it, maybe?  Check the ip on my desktop… ok, different subnet. Raspberry Pi is on wifi, desktop is wired. try changing the ip address on the pi, go through all the steps again… pull out card, put in card, edit file, etc…  back in the pi, boot it up… try to hit it.  Nope.

I have two wifi networks (don’t ask) so I try connecting to the other one. just for grins I do a sudo apt-get update command on the pi. lots of errors and timeouts. Hmm… ok this thing OBVIOUSLY isnt actually connecting to the internet. That’s weird.  Go back and change it again, back to the original network. try running the update command again… same errors. Ok, what’s going on?

Take a break, grab a drink… walk around the house mumbling profanities under my breath… go back upstairs, and look at my network info on my main pc. hmm… Linux is case sensitive.  ok, take another look, sure enough… SSID is all caps, but not in the network config file. Feeling a bit stupid, and triumphant, all at the same time, I change it again… boot it up.

Holding my breath, I try to hit the server from my PC. Success!! Awesome…  but apparently I’m about 6 versions behind. Ok ok, fair enough. hit the update button, go look for something to eat downstairs. come back, reboot again.

ok, it says my printer is not connected to the server. click the connect button… wait… wait… nothing. I check the log tab… it’s trying, but can’t find the printer. weird. *sigh* ok, check the cables. Yes, it’s connected via USB to the Pi. Hmm… why isn’t the light on?  Oh, it’s not plugged in. Duh.  Plug in the printer, light comes on, reboot the pi, again.

so far so good, press the connect button… check the log entries, trying to find the right baud rate… hmm… fail. again.

maybe it’s the usb cable. go find another one. dig around in boxes. I should really organize this stuff better.  Eventually find another cable that matches, swap it out. Try to connect, still no luck. I hardcode the speed and port info, reboot, try again. Nothing.

All I wanted to do was just fire off a simple test print. *sigh*

Start checking versions. OctoPrint uses a few plugins, including one to make it work with the M3D Printer. Looks like that’s pretty far out of date too. Ok hit the update button. Says everything is up to date. Nope. Don’t see any way to force an upgrade, so… Uninstall the plug in, get the newest version, reinstall… All of this I can do remotely from my PC, so that’s nice.  Try to connect… still nothing.  What. The. Hell?!?

Need coffee… we’re out of instant. ok, MAKE coffee… wait…

Come back, un-hardcode the connection info, set it back to auto, reboot again. *sip*  OctoPrint pops up, detects the printer!!  Awesome, now we’re in business. Where did I put that filament?  I know it’s around here somewhere. Eventually find another box with my most recent filament order. Wait… should probably recalibrate the printer first.

Ok, recalibrating is fairly easy… takes about 30 minutes.  Mostly automatic, with some minor manual adjustments.  Ok, time to load the filament.  There’s a button for that too (I love this setup) so I warm the printer up, guide in some filament… ok I think it’s in. Tell the server I’m ready. 

Find a file to print, upload it, slice it. send it to print.

Buzz… whirr… click click… humm…  so far so good.  wait a couple minutes, *sip*

Go take a look at the print bed… there’s nothing on it. *sigh*  ok, cancel the print, redo the filament loading process again.

fire up the model again, send it to print.  wait… *sip*

Ok, now it’s working… I see filament on the print bed. Now to wait 7 hours for the completed print.  Come back an hour later, there’s filament EVERYWHERE EXCEPT THE PRINT BED…  Cancel the print job, clean up the mess. Take out the print bed. Clean it really well. Put it back in.

Start the job for the 3rd time. Go downstairs, eat dinner, help my youngest son level up his Pathfinder character.

Come back an hour later, looking good… still printing. Go to bed.

I love my printer, and I love OctoPrint, and I’m fairly fond of the Raspberry Pi, but man, some days.

These are the settings we have used to get perfect prints on our printers. Printers vary as do different types of filaments and how prints behave in different types of weather! You will need to get comfortable with your printer and how it prints in the hot, cold, and humidity. Regardless of the printer you choose, I recommend keeping your room cool and dry. I also, highly recommend using Hatchbox PLA. It may cost a bit more but it’s 100% worth it. Seriously.

5 Steps to a Successful K–12 STEM Program Design eli.zimmerman_9856 Thu, 08/09/2018 - 09:03

From inside the K-12 education bubble, it’s easy to believe that STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and STEAM (adding art to the STEM mix) initiatives are a done deal — everyone’s doing them. 

There are whole conferences dedicated to STEM. But as recently as 2016, a Gallup research poll conducted by Google found that only 40 percent of U.S. schools offer programming or coding classes. 

With the Trump administration prioritizing $200 million a year toward STEM and computer science education and tech giants including Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Facebook ponying up another $300 million, there may be opportunities for schools new to the idea of STEM to get started. 

Knowing where to focus time and attention when getting started can mean all the difference between a solid program and one that fades after a couple of years.

1. Understand the Origins of STEM and Its Importance

Where do STEM programs come from? The initial idea for a program may bubble up from any of the various stakeholders in the education community: administration, teachers, students, and even the business community.

“Oftentimes, it is a grassroots effort and comes from one teacher,” says Laura Fleming, veteran teacher, voice behind the Worlds of Learning blog and author of The Kickstart Guide to Making GREAT Makerspaces, “someone who is a STEM champion, who gets other colleagues to buy in, and in some cases, even gets administration on board and buying in as well. It all can happen very organically and isn't always a top-down initiative pushed down by administration.”

Some STEM programs even originate with a visit from an outside organization that exposes students and teachers to STEM concepts and programming.

SparkShop, whose mission is to educate students about STEM and raise their awareness of the diversity of engineering career opportunities, is one such nonprofit. 

“We come into a school with our maker lab and offer STEM classes that run as three-week intensives,” says Shonali Ditz, co-founder of SparkShop. “We provide teachers a STEM curriculum packet to engage kids within that three-week window and throughout the year. And at the end of three-week session, we’ve taken the designs that the kids created and built them out on our 3D printer, and we bring them back for the students to see the end results.”

“Our curriculum is focused on three topics: varieties of engineering, manufacturing, and invention and entrepreneurship,” adds Tiernan Murrell, SparkShop’s other co-founder. “Our makerspace helps bring these topics to life. We use it with every school we visit, but especially with needy schools who don’t have adequate funding.”

2. Identify Your School's Specific STEM Mission

Given the growing popularity of STEM, it’s understandable that districts and schools may want to jump on the bandwagon and quickly commit to an initiative.

Not surprisingly, these attempts often fail without the necessary research and planning. A thought-out mission and roadmap are key to growing a successful STEM program.

“Before any district gets started with any sort of STEM initiative, they need to ask themselves the question, ‘Why?’” says Fleming. “They need to identify what their needs are, what their interest in STEM is based on and what their goals are. It is very important to not embark on any sort of STEM initiative just because it is a trend. It needs to run deeper than that in order for there to be any sort of success and sustainability.” 

One of the best ways to plan the direction of your STEM program is by observing what other districts are doing. 

“One suggestion I always give is to build on what other schools are doing,” explains Todd Burleson, resource center director for District 36’s Hubbard Woods School in Winnetka, Ill., and author of The Green Screen Makerspace Project Book. "If you’re looking to build out a makerspace, I recommend going to visit other schools and see what they’re doing. And ask, ‘What do you use? What don’t you use? What can you do without?’ We did this in our district, traveling to Wisconsin and Colorado, and we learned a lot from these visits.”

Fleming agrees with this approach and says there’s great value in “visiting local districts who have successful programs that are in line with your identified goals, attending conferences that offer sessions that address your identified goals, seeking out thought leaders in the STEM space whose work is in line with your vision, leveraging social media platforms to learn more and getting some ideas related to the program you want to create for your school or district.”

3. Integrate STEM to Work with the Current Curriculum

While looking outside your district for inspiration, you also want to focus internally on the existing curricula in the classrooms to figure out how you can integrate STEM into what’s there. 

"Look first at what you’re doing in science and how STEAM can augment those projects and enrich them," suggests Burleson. "I suggest starting small: Choose a particular project and work outward from there.

“The most effective STEM programs, are those that are integrated directly into the curriculum in the classroom, rather than skills and concepts taught in isolation,” adds Fleming. “Integrating STEM in this way gives a context for learning, and will help to create learning that endures." 

Teachers should try to create authentic educational activities that are aligned with content-area standards, as well as STEM, Flemming says. "Doing so will maximize deeper learning."

4. Do Not Give STEM an Age Requirement

One question STEM neophytes often have is when to bring STEM into the classroom mix.

Experience has shown that STEM programs are applicable to students from all age groups, from kindergarten through high school. While these can be sophisticated topics, kids get them. 

“There definitely is not an age that is too young,” says Fleming. “Young learners are fearless, have a natural curiosity, and are more willing to take risks and chances, and those qualities serve them well when it comes to STEM-related concepts.”

Currently, SparkShop’s classroom visits are focused on fourth- and fifth-graders.

“There’s research that shows that kids are forming their self-concept with regard to academics between the ages of 8 and 10, so that’s why we’re focused on this age group,” explains Ditz. “We go in right at the age when kids are identifying themselves with their academics. We help them apply those strengths that they’re recognizing to STEM topics and engineering fields.”

5. Enhance STEM Programming with Proper Technology Budgeting

Since all the topics falling under the STEM acronym touch on technology in one way or another, it’s important to give thought to where and how technology will fit into your program and budget accordingly. 

Within District 36, Burleson explains, “We have buckets of technology: construction, robotics, circuitry and electronics, and coding. We try to spread our budget evenly across those buckets. Each bucket is important and in relationship to the others.” 

If you’re just getting started, Burleson suggests the following tools:

  • Construction: Legos, Rigamajigs
  • Robotics and coding: Robot Turtle board game, Sphero, NAO robot
  • Circuitry: Squishy Circuits, simple circuits

When bringing its makerspace into classrooms, SparkShop typically includes a Makerbot Replicator+ 3D printer, an Inventables Carvey 3D carving machine, a laser cutter, a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 to run CAD software and electronics kits for all the students. 

By supplying the technology themselves, schools that are unable to afford their own tools are still able to enjoy them. 

"SparkShop's approach is to keep all the kids engaged," explains Murrell.

          Comment on Ask Hackaday: Is There a Common Mechanical Parts Library? by Leithoa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
@Hairless Ape >>Yes! Few of us ‘hackers’ will have the space or resources to purchase the whole library. Definitely, but if there's a parts library of the 10,000 most common parts from 747's to arduino shields, doesn't it make sense to have some of that list on hand? As others have mentioned not everywhere has the option to express ship something from shanghai or the nearest amazon depot. Obviously you're going to focus on the parts useful to your projects. >> ...many will not apply to us as individuals. That is the point I was dancing around. There are many parts that are very common across multiple industries or hobby niches but they don't make sense for rennaisssance hobbyists to keep on hand or the 'common' parts might be prohibitively expensive. >>This absolutely depends on your goals I completely agree, but the target audience I see using this list most often are Hackerspaces trying to stock parts for a couple dozen people and people sending small runs to some board house. You may only need to build single digit quantities of a project but production time (price) adds up when you have to swap reels or tool heads. Your lawnmower example is a good one because sometimes parts are 'common' simply because that year model broke quickly and you can find them at the thrift store or recycler for scrap prices. How many HV projects start with 'find and old CRT display to gut'? >> designing for an audience Absolutely, as I said, the tooling you have access too informs your design choices. I agree someone that enjoys 3D printing is unlikely to have a brake or shears, I think that's a gross oversight though as you can buy or make both of them for under the same price as a good low end printer. Door hinges and some hardwood boards will produce nice bends in light gauge metal. Or a set of hand seamers for small enclosures. I understand space is a premium even if you have a 10,000sqf 'space to work in, that doesn't mean you need aircraft repair equipment to work on sheet metal. All of this goes back to my first point of 'common to what?'.

He took his handgun and confronted them, fired two rounds and struck one of them in the hip, they all ran. Two came back, but cops pulled up as they were trying to break back in. Without the gun, that would have ended very differently. He was not some Rambo type, he was a guy in his 60's scared to death.

I support Cody Wilson and have since I became aware of him in 2003. Hackers believe all information should be free. The idea though, that any 3D printer can produce a viable firearm from one of these models is a joke. I have a good amount of 3D printing experience, most 3D printers that are accessible to people like Makerbots, etc use a PLA plastic filament material that melts at 200 degrees and has very little tensile strength. These would explode if used with ammunition. A more expensive industrial-class printer like what DD used initially is needed to create a viable model, and still lacks the strength to withstand more than a few magazines fired through it without damage. But if you have all the other parts of an AR, you could print the lower receiver (the licensed part) and hang it on the wall or something.

105.00 USD

The item for sale is are all the 3d printed parts to make this prop and is the same parts in the photos supplied for this listing.

<< the picture of the finished prop is there for reference only, this is a kit of parts as pictured in the first two photographs. >>

These parts will make a very close replica of the blaster used by Boba Fett in Return of the Jedi. It is scaled to be as close as possible to the MR prop and hence is approximately 83cm in overall length.

The item is 3d printed in ABS plastic, not fragile PLA so is strong and lightweight. It has also been designed to come apart into two parts for easy transport by simply removing one bolt. Also ABS is much easier to finish and sand and you can acetone weld the parts.

I will supply basic instructions but the onus is on the buyer to assemble and finish the prop:

These have been printed at a much higher resolution than most, and detailed parts are printed at 200 micron, all done on well calibrated machines, one specifically designed for prop making. (Not CR-10s :-) )

(This is a newer version of the EE-3 Kit that has been previously sold. Its a higher grade finish printed at a much higher resolution using hi grade plastic for the best results)

International Shipping information

All props are shipped internationally using Australia Post economy air or EMS (Via Aust Post) Express services. All services are tracked.
