In a world of economic scarcity, public housing has become essential for sheltering our species’ most vulnerable populations. Interestingly, the island city-state of Sinagpore having a unique approach to public housing, with 80% of the resident population living in government buildings and, more than that, the small nation implemented some housing practices that the United States has sometimes been too afraid to tackle when it comes to public housing: socioeconomically integrated public developments.

Circuits from Space! ESA to Develop 3D Printing Breadboard Machine for the ISS

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing has certainly impacted a lot of industries down here on Earth, but numerous projects show that the true potential of this maturing tech may be best suited for outer space. As of late, the European Space Agency has certainly recognized 3D printing as an important tool in the space race, having just awarded €500k to a team that developed a new cold spraying technology that enables metal to be 3D printed at room temperatures (helping to eliminate possible heat-based distortion and damage to metal components).…

If successful, Google’s Project Tango has the power to change just about everything. By putting a 3D camera into tablets and smartphones, ordinary consumers could, potentially, capture their daily world in 3D, sharing 3D selfies on dating sites and posting scans of their newborns on Facebook, all using a device that they would be carrying around anyway. And, after showing off a prototype of the Project Tango smartphone with Intel’s RealSense built-in, Google and Lenovo have teased that they will unveiling something big on Thursday.…
