Columbia University Invention will soon make building material (Concrete) better and long lasting

Modern Building Materials The construction industry consumes more natural resources than any other industry. With increasing public awareness of the needs and demands of sustainable development and environmental conservation, no other industry is called on as much as the country's construction and building industry to evolve their practices to satisfy the needs of our current generation, without curtailing the resources of future generations to meet theirs. For example, concrete is by far the m...

SolarSinster 3dPrints Using Solar Energy and Sand

So far, Innovation Essence has featured 3d printed prosthetics, 3d printing pens, and 3d printers that print a house, and even food printing. However, another 3d printing product is also extremely innovative, as all of the former were limited in how much they could print by the amount of filament used. The SolarSinster prints glass, is entirely solarpowered, and runs off of natural resources. All it needs is the sun to be out and sand and it can function, making it ideal for a desert. Factories ...

NASA Is Testing Next-Generation Fire Shelters

NASA reached an agreement with the US Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service to test prototype fire shelters made from the space agency's next-generation thermal protection systems (TPM) materials—intended, initially, to protect future spacecraft upon re-entry (in fact, a first generation of the material has already been tested on the agency's third Inflatable Reentry Vehicle Experiment vehicle, IRVE-3). Not unlike a spacecraft tearing through the atmosphere, NASA’s hope is that its mater...

Dubai to build 3D printed office

The United Arab Emirates National Innovation Committee has unveiled plans to build the world's first 3D printed structure with a massive, 20-foot-tall 3D printer. Though many structures have utilized 3D printing, none have been entirely built by using the technology. Everything - the building's structure, interior finishes, and furniture - will be 3D printed in sections and then assembled on site, according to a report by 3DPrint. The 2,000-square-foot building will then be used to house the Mus...
