#TBT 1960s | AFRL Lab To Life – The Mouse

In 1961, AFOSR awarded a basic research grant to Dr. Douglas Engelbart for his research on augmenting human intellect and the potential of computers to assist people in complex decision making. His AFOSR-sponsored report, published in 1962, served as a roadmap for developing computer technologies. This was followed in 1964 with the introduction of the first computer mouse, which was part of an experiment to find better ways to “point and click” on a display screen.

Researchers from +Georgia Tech, +Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Xi’an Jiaotong University have developed a new 3D printing method.

“This new approach significantly simplifies and increases the potential of 4-D printing by incorporating the mechanical programming post-processing step directly into the 3-D printing process.” - Professor Jerry Qi, George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech.

Research proposals are sought for the FY18 Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP).

DURIP is for the acquisition of major equipment by U.S institutions of higher education to augment current or develop new research capabilities to support research in technical areas of interest to the +Department of Defense. DURIP is open only to U.S. institutions of higher education, with degree granting programs in science, math, and/or engineering.

The current closing date for applications is July 7, 2017. To learn more, visit https://go.usa.gov/xXPcT #BasicResearch #AFOSRDURIP #Science #Engineering

Professor Andy LiWang, +UC Merced, and his colleagues, Professor Carrie Partch, +UC Santa Cruz, and Professor Susan Golden, +University of California San Diego, have discovered a way to see assemblies of the proteins that direct cyanobacterial circadian rhythms, or biological clocks. The research is supported, in part, by AFOSR PO Dr. Pat Bradshaw, Human Performance and Biosystems, to better explain human circadian rhythms. #BasicResearch #breakthrough #BioChemistry
