3D printers aren't yet as high resolution as they will be some day. So why not add a subtractive manufacturing component to this additive manufacturing process? 

This company just did. (Video)
Why does 3D printing get all the love? Probably because it evokes visions of Star Trek’s famous replicator. Back here in the humble 21st century,

The Origibot takes the basics of a telepresence robot, and adds a gripping arm.

How much would you expect to pay for something like this?
Telepresence robots are awesome, but the experience can be frustrating at times. The reason? They lack arms. Whether you want to examine an

Rumor has it that Apple wants to develop a car by 2020. 

Read why the +Singularity Hub team thinks that isn't such a crazy idea.
We tend to think of cars as a mature technology. They’re good enough to be boring. But something weird is happening. Silicon Valley is eyeing the

We are thrilled to announce our newest Global Impact Competition in Miami today. This project with the +Knight Foundation will bring together innovators to figure out solutions for the rising sea-level in South Florida.

The winners will receive a full scholarship to our 10 week Graduate Studies Program this summer. 

Please spread the word to the innovators in your networks.
According to research on Virginia Key by the University of Miami’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences, sea levels on Miami’s coast have risen 3.7 inches since 1996, and the rate of increase has been accelerating. If the rate of sea rise over the last five years holds steady for the next 50 years – and indications are it could rise faster – high tide levels in Miami would go up over five feet, leading to high risks of flooding and saltwater intrus...
