Kombination aus 3D-Druck und Textil nach dem Vorbild von pfanzlichen Zellstrukturen
Usage of small 3D parts contributes to a better material utilization
Welche Ideen und Projekte gibt es in Hessen zum Thema Bionik? Einen Überblick über Forschungs- und Entwicklungsprojekte sowie Kontakte zu Netzwerken und Ansprechpartnern bietet der "Kompetenzatlas Bionik in Hessen", herausgegeben von der Technologielinie Hessen-Nanotech des Hessischen Wirtschaftsministeriums im Jahr 2014. Die Veröffentlichung wird ab November 2015 auch in englischer Sprache vorliegen.
The connection with Nature is a key element in Biomimetics, which lead creativity to sustainable innovation. In many ways, Science is out of reach to many people, and it is quite difficult to teach it through texts and arguments. It is well known that Science can better be taught trough images, as scientific images have always fascinated people by getting their attention and interest. Today it is possible to go beyond images using 3D printing for teaching. In my project, I even go further by u ... more
In this project I like to create DIY design solutions for occupational therapists. I want to encourage the occupational therapists to make special customized assistive devices using modeling material by their own. After going back to the roots and modelling by hand the object can be reproduced using 3D scaning and printing. I want to outline the method of working with the oven hands and form devices with materials, tools and proce ... more
This device store solar power and transferred the stored energy for different application. This device is designed keeping the requirements of needy and poor people of Asian an African region . These continents get enough amount of sunlight, which can be converted in to electric power and provide basic amenities like light and food for a family of four. Tribals and poor people spend their daytime doing hard work in fields and labor work. based on the research I found out that these people cook their food either in morning or evening. And t ... more
The website http://www.asknature.org offers great inspiring biomimicry cases and examples, you can use it to see what genius principles nature has created and what their technical potential can be. Die Webseite http://www.asknature.org gibt viele Bionik Beispiele als Inspiration und für einige auch bereits technische Anwendungen, sehr gute Vorbilder zum Recherchieren.
Focused on 3 key solutions: 1. Use of Eco friendly energy and materials. 2. Multifunctionality, combining the task of transportation and radio broadcasting in one vehicle. 3. Inclusion of electric motors which allow the vehicle to reach greater distances.
Could self healing plastics be 3D-Printed? Then there were many many great sustainability applications. See the project by University of Pennsylvania:
Vierseitige Pyramiden (winkel 45°) werden im Vakuum fff, fdm gedruckt. (Hierbei liegt die Herausforderung am Austesten von Materialverhalten -beim Abkühlen- und der Wahl des Filaments bzgl. Druck-Statikeigenschaften- am besten Recyclingmaterial). Wenn man die Pyramiden richtig anordnet kann man Strukturen schaffen, die sich durch Stabilität, relativ geringe Wärmeübertragung (Wärmeleitung des filaments), gute schalltechnische Eigenschaften ("nur Körperschall") auszeichnen. Einsatzmöglichkei ... more
SHORT DESCRIPTION ampUP Radio Is a platform for networking and empowering youth through a mobile radio vehicle. ShareRadio and local bike shops use recycled aluminum and create ampUP Quads, as well as both services rendered by the product. First, a spread-the-word platform that connects venues and events with young attendees, and secondly, an open source tool for young entrepreneurs to use AmpUp as a key resource in their projects.
Build up is an exhibition module that aims meeting different needs with easy transportation and stacking.
Our Resort is located on the small Island of Aruba a few miles of the coast of Venezuela. We are an environmentally friendly resort and have encountered several issues in areas that deal with the environment. We have a recycling program that we have been running for years at the resort. All the plastic collected goes to a facility on the Island and basically sits there as there is no plastic recycling processing equipment on the Island and exporting this plastic unless you have a very large amount is v ... more
Eine wesentliche Quelle von Innovationen aus der Bionik umfasst das Thema Wärmedämmung durch Füssigkeits-Wasser-Schichten in wie auch immer gearteten (Hohl)-Körpern. Ein anderes System sind die verschiedenen Wabenstrukturen zur Belüftung und Stabilität bei gleichzeitig idealem Materialeinsatz. Diese Systeme werden schon verschiedentlich in unterschiedlichen Technologien angewendet. Im Rahmen des Themas Smart und sustainable Urban Ecosystems werden Gebäude immer effizienter gebaut. Hier w ... more
Our small hotel is located near Port Antonio, on Jamaica's north east coast about 200m above sea level. Temperatures here have been, in the past comfortable even in the summer and our guests have been comfortable in our breeze cooled rooms with fans.
Bionik- Network Hessen and VDID (Verband Deutscher Industrie Designer e.V.) are searching for the most inspiring and visionary ideas on how Biomimetics or Biomimicry can be combined with 3D-Printing to generate more sustainable solutions. These can happen anywhere: in construction of houses or vehicles, in furniture and everyday products design, in ... more
On August 3, the government of Puerto Rico missed a $58 million payment on debts that it owes mostly to residents of Puerto Rico. The island faces a "death spiral" of debt and economic stagnation unless the foreign creditors to whom it owes billions of dollars will agree to some form of restructuring. This could be a great opportunity for starting an eco-tourism program on this Island... or not?
UPCOMING: We are using and wasting too many resources. The world overshoot day is happening earlier each year. In 2015 it is on August 13th. That means from that day on we have consumed all the resources that the earth is able to renew within one year. The Circular Economy is an economy that re-uses and recycles everything all the time and thus reduces considerably the amount of resources taken from nature and the amount of waste and emissions sent back to nature. How can we encourage wide uptake of that ... more
Do you own, manage, or work at a hotel on a small island? Are you trying to make it more sustainable but are facing challenges in areas such as: Energy, Waste, Water, Wildlife Conservation or Food and Beverage? Sustainable management of those areas is critical for the long term viability of hotels on small islands. Sustainable solutions go hand i ... more
Music festivals are popular in Europe and around the world. Thousands of people get together and dance to the music all night long. Throughout this process human energy is being exerted and not used for any practical application. Some technology has been developed (for example Energy Floors at Watt Club in Rotterdam - See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t09uDncGKA) but it is not yet widely implemented. Most solutions focus o ... more
Summer in the city and the piles of rubbish grow in the parks and along rivers in the cities. Munich with the Isar and the park “Englischer Garten” are very prominent examples. Last Weekend 9 tons of garbage has been collected over the weekend in the park. How can we solve the problem? What ideas exists? How can we reduce trouble and costs? (Picture: TZ)
Es ist Sommer in der Stadt und mit einher gehen die Müllberge in den Grünanlagen. In München insb. an Isar und im Englischen Garten. Aber wie können wir das Problem lösen? Welche Ideen gibt es? Wie können wir sowohl den Frust als auch schlicht und einfach die Kosten reduzieren? (Quelle Foto: TZ)
Water scarcity is a serious and pressing issue even in coastal regions, and not only in California, the Middle East, and parts of Africa but also in Europe. This will be made worse by global warming. How can we harvest fresh water from sea water or from the humidity in the air or other sources. Principle technologies are there, but mostly they are very expensive or consume too much energy. We need better ideas.
In most places some amount of wind is available all the time. What are your ideas for using it as a decentralized energy source for small scale electricity or other energy uses, e.g. for movement? Early small scale windmills were used to pump water. What are other options? The large scale wind turbines are currently the cheapest source of renewable energy. What can we do on with wind energy on the small and micro scale?
