Lasers and nanoparticles combine to allow metalic 3D printing in midair

Lasers and nanoparticles combine to allow metalic 3D printing in midair For one, almost all 3D printers use plastic as the medium, and that plastic needs to be supported during the printing process.An experimental printer developed by Harvard’s Wyss Institute and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) uses nanoparticles and lasers to make metallic 3D printing feasible in midair.

Scientists finally make 'triangulene,' which is good, we think

Scientists finally make 'triangulene,' which is good, we think On paper, triangulene is made of six benzene rings, put together edge-on to make a flat triangular flake of a molecule that has a seemingly innocuous set of unpaired electrons.The icing on the proverbial cake is that the scientists who made triangulene have no idea how to handle it nor what to do with it.

What I’ve Learned From Tinkering With the Raspberry Pi for Five Years

What I’ve Learned From Tinkering With the Raspberry Pi for Five Years Thankfully, Raspberry Pi projects have gotten easier over the years.Before hobbyists latched onto the Raspberry Pi, it was a computer for learning how to code targeted mainly at kids.
