| World’s First 3D Printed Car Took Years to Design, But Only 44 Hours to Print |
Sep 17, 2014 - 8:17 AM - by HOBOcs |
One day, in the not-too-distant future, you’ll be able to walk into a car dealership, choose a design — including the number of seats — and have a 3D printed car by the end of the day. |
The "Strati", which means “layers” in Italian
According to Ford Motors, most cars have somewhere between 5,000 and 6,000 parts. The Strati has just 49, including its 3D printed body (the largest part), plus more traditional components like the motor, wheels, seats and windshield. While many 3D printed car models exist, there haven't been any other drivable ones that we could find.
....Although the Strati is just as expensive as a full-sized sedan, Rogers does not envision it as a luxury item. Instead, he believes it will be an affordable and highly customizable option that could be widely available by 2016 for between $18,000 and $34,000.

| Security updates for Adobe Acrobat and Reader |

Security updates for Adobe Acrobat and Reader have just been released addressing eight vulnerabilities in both the Windows and Mac versions. The affected versions are Reader and Acrobat X 10.1.11 and earlier and Reader and Acrobat XI 11.0.08 for Windows and Mac.
The updates were originally scheduled to be released a week ago, but were delayed due to problems in testing.
The new versions are Reader and Acrobat X 10.1.12 and Reader and Acrobat XI 11.0.09 for Windows and Mac. Individual users may apply the updates using the “Check for Updates” option on the Help menu. If it says no new version, then wait a couple of hours and try again. It is very common for Adobe to throttle downloads in certain regions.

| Want lithium-ion batteries to last? Slow charging may not be the answer |
Sep 14, 2014 - 6:26 PM - by TechSocial |
New research by a California-based team could change the way lithium-ion batteries are charged in consumer electronics products and electric cars, leading to longer lifetimes and more useful batteries. |
The work, published on Sunday in the Nature Materials journal, challenges the commonly held notion that slowly charging a battery helps prolong its life and that it’s damaging to a battery if a large amount of energy is withdrawn in a short time.
“We’ve always thought of a battery as a [single] device, but inside an iPhone battery there are a few trillion particles,” said William Chueh, a senior author of the paper and researcher at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences, in an interview.
