Freehand Fabricator: An industrial-grade 3D pen.

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Timothy Keller
Home: California, United States
The Freehand Fabricator is what you would get if a 3D printer and a MIG welder had a baby. It is a high-temperature, high-flow 3D printer hot end with a comfortable handle and spool-fed extruder base station. People who have used '3D pens' know how slow they are, and how quickly they break. This is the solution those makers have been waiting for: the Freehand Fabricator is capable of extruding engineering-grade plastics and is more than twice as fast as existing solutions. The project is in the late prototyping stage at the moment and will be launched on Kickstarter in the coming months. We are currently looking for people to play with the prototypes and tell us what they think!

One Health Lab

Faire: Rome
Maker: Università di Siena
The bioeconomy is not only the set of activities of food, bio-energy, and bio-materials production, but includes all activities that transform biological resources into other products. In many cases, as in the forestry sector and in many areas of biomaterial production activities, no processes are involved biotechnological but biophysical or biochemical, which makes the technical and scientific skills of the Laboratory absolutely suited to this time of crucial transition, accepting the challenge of integrating the bioeconomy and the circular economy into a new concept known as the circular bioeconomy. The Demonstrator to be implemented by the Macronode@UNISI ensures the marriage of innovation (generation of know- how), quality and sustainability in a multidisciplinary and multiproduct vision (use of know-how) proposing and using green and bio-based solutions: a model that aims at real circularity, a unicum in the eco-sustainable life sciences sector nationally and internationally. The experimental laboratory will be organized as a Bioeconomy Innovation Lab with the aim of creating a platform for the development of products derived from a waste, capable of making the process of formulating a new product and put it on the market, connecting the raw material and subcontractor industries, as well as offering the ability to carry out quality control testing, stability, material studies and realization of product prototypes.

+Re Water

Faire: Rome
Maker: Innovazione e tecnologia a supporto di uno stile di vita migliore e dignitoso per tutti
L'idea si basa sui punti 6 e 7 dell’agenda 2030, ossia Garantire a tutti la disponibilità e la gestione sostenibile dell’acqua e delle strutture igienico-sanitarie e assicurare a tutti l’accesso a sistemi di energia economici, affidabili, sostenibili e moderni. +Re Water suddivide il suo funzionamento tra le due fasi principali della giornata, durante la notte recupera acqua, deumidificando l’aria circostante; durante il dì produce energia elettrica e potabilizza l’acqua tramite una serie di filtri in carbonio attivo e lampade di tipo UV. Ma gli sprechi non sono ben visti da noi di +Re Water, ed î per questo che abbiamo scelto di aggiungere una cisterna di raccolta dell’acqua piovana, che verrà in seguito potabilizzata assieme all’acqua deumidificata. Perché scegliere il nostro progetto? Il nostro progetto offre soluzioni innovative, volte a diminuire i problemi di approvvigionamento idrico nel mondo usando solo energia fotovoltaica. +Re Water î basato su una visione a lungo termine e su una strategia di sviluppo continuo con lo scopo di adattarsi alle esigenze di ogni zona e aiutare più persone possibile.
