At present, we don’t explicitly showcase a diverse array of products. On browse pages for categories such as rugs, couches,…

Augmented reality takes 3-D printing to next level

Cornell researchers are taking 3-D printing and 3-D modeling to a new level by using augmented reality (AR) to allow designers to design in physical space while a robotic arm rapidly prints the work. “Instead of designing 3-D models on the computer screen, we wanted to give users the opportunity to work in conjunction with the robot. We call it in-situ fabrication,” said Huaishu Peng, Cornell information science doctoral student. To use the Robotic Modeling Assistant (RoMA), a designer…

Why are Infographics Important for Your Sales?

According to various reports, more than 1.5 billion pieces of content, over 2 million videos, and at least 140 million tweets are created each day. You don’t need to be a genius to see that’s a hell lot of information. Now, this content explosion brings with it one problem – competition.

Calcium may play a role in the development of Parkinson’s disease — ScienceDaily

Researchers have found that excess levels of calcium in brain cells may lead to the formation of toxic clusters that are the hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. The international team, led by the University of Cambridge, found that calcium can mediate the interaction between small membranous structures inside nerve endings, which are important for neuronal signalling in the brain, and alpha-synuclein, the protein associated with Parkinson’s disease. Excess levels of either calcium or alpha-synuclein may be what starts the chain reaction…

Illegal global trade of pangolins — ScienceDaily

Animal traffickers are taking advantage of remote ivory trade routes to smuggle pangolins — one of the world’s most endangered animals — out of Central Africa, a new study has found. The solitary mammals — sought after for their meat and scales — are being transported across remote forest borders in a largely successful attempt to avoid increased law enforcement, according to groundbreaking research led by the University of Stirling. In the first ever study to investigate how criminals are…
