Joris Aarman's Metal 3D Printing Robot

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 24, 2014
Dutch designer Joris Laarman, who previously developed a 3D-printing technique that uses quick-drying resin to draw sculptures in mid-air, has recently created a robot that can print with metals including stainless steel, aluminum, bronze or copper. Using a robot typically used in car manufacturing, the method ads small amounts of molten metal at a time, allowing for lines to be printed in mid air. The lines can also be printed to intersect with each other, creating self-supporting structures.

The World’s Most Realistic Finger Painting by Kyle Lambert

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 12, 2013
Or so the claim goes, and I had to keep going back to my colleagues in the office to make sure this wasn't a photograph. Apparently, using just an iPad, the app Procreate, and over 285,000 brush strokes, artist Kyle Lambert was able to recreate ever precisely a photograph of Morgan Freeman taken by Scott Greis. You have to spend time with the timelapse to understand how this goes down...

"What The Future Sounded Like"

Music // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
A brilliant use of 30 minutes of your day would be to watch this documentary on electronic music, "What the Future Sounded Like," a great find from our friends over at TWBE. "Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain."
