For months one of the top requests from our community and from Workbench users has been an Android mobile app – and here it is! Head on over to Google Play Store to install. We know you’re eager, so go ahead, we’ll wait.
It’s been over a month since we first announced the challenge to create a set of glasses that display closed-captioning for a movie, and the results have been overwhelming! All twenty-eight entries we received were amazing, and when it came time to pick ten finalists, we chose them based on creativity, design, and the use of an app (powered by WiFi/Bluetooth technology) to transmit captions to the glasses.
We’ve now ranked these ten finalists based on which are most parallel to our vision, and we’re now thrilled to announce the challenge winners! Read the rest of this entry »
Get inspired to create new, inventive bike accessories for the Velodroom product line! Their current lighting system, watch this video, is smart and practical, they start when you start and stop when you stop. They rear light even turns on when you brake.

“Mommy, I can’t hear Grandpa!” That was the first difficulty Alex Kukoff’s hearing loss presented. She struggled to hear her grandfather — he was dying of complications of Parkinson’s Disease — through the cell phone pressed against her ear in the noisy atmosphere of her mother’s bathroom.

Robots immediately bring up connotations of hard metal, whirling motors and precise movements. The rapidly developing field of ‘soft robotics’ is bending that notion by combining pneumatics, 3D printing, silicone rubber and the locomotion of jellyfish and octopi. Air or liquid is forced into specially designed rubber forms, following particular channels to bend the piece or make it rigid in a controllable manner. Who said you had to use metal to make a robot!
Telecommunications giant Nokia just released today that they are releasing a few of the CAD files for their new Lumia 820, free of charge. With a good 3D printer, or even a CNC machine, it’s possible for any GrabCADr to download, redesign or remix the case, fab and then reattach. It’s a tremendous step in the right direction towards Open Engineering for Nokia, the second-largest manufacturers of phones in the World.
