The history of 3D printing goes back to the 1980s, and from prosthesis and guns, to cars and houses, it has definitely come a very long way.  What I find most amazing is that 3D printing can also create 3D printers, thus demonstrating that meta-3D printing has a very pragmatic, exponential effect!

Maxwell Bogue and Peter Dilworth developed the 3Doodler, and they ran a very successful fund-raising campaign on Kickstarter in 2013 ($2 million) and then a follow up campaign earlier this year ($1.5 million) to improve the 3Doodler.  See next post.

"I believe that thermoelectricity is a great source of untapped, lost energy and I am researching methods of capturing it and using it for the human good. I believe it holds the hope of replacing batteries in certain low power applications, as well as powering flashlights. This will eventually have a significant effect on the pollution caused by used batteries in our landfills and water tables.

Currently, the major obstacle to the wide use of human heat energy, is the efficiency of the capturing and conversion technology.
My own thermoelectric flashlight is currently under development to improve efficiencies and provide a brighter light. That is not an easy task and I am pitted against limits of current technology. We have made a small production run of the flashlights which are being tested and considered for mass production by a major manufacturer."

From law enforcement and agriculture, to security and rescue, drones offer exciting solutions. Me, it's film making.

In June 2013, a friend and I were among two million fans who converged in downtown Chicago to celebrate the Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship.  It was so crowded that we lost each other, and there was no mobile signal amid that thick of people.  Enter: Daniela and Jorge Perdomo, who invented goTenna, which would've helped my friend and me.
