How a 3D-printed titanium bike points the way to products custom-fit for you
Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 08.33.16.pngDesign firm Industry has developed a bike that demonstrates how the lines are blurring in design, engineering and manufacturing. This shift will ultimately allow companies to tailor products to individuals. c/net reports.

quotemarksright.jpgThe Solid is an unusual bicycle: it's 3D-printed out of titanium, it's unusually streamlined, it will take you on routes designed to help you discover a city and it tells you where to turn by buzzing signals in the handlebars. It's also a harbinger of how products will be built in the future.

But the Solid, designed by a Portland, Ore.-based firm called Industry and unveiled Thursday here for the Connected Conference, is unusual in another way, too. It's not a product to be sold, but instead a project to help Industry figure out the future of design and manufacturing.

3D printers, which fuse raw materials layer by layer into metal or plastic components, will open the door to new levels of customization.

The end result may not mean you can buy the Solid in a bike shop next year. But according to Industry co-founder Oved Valadez, it will completely transform the products you do buy.

"The future is about bringing 'personal' back to service," Valadez said. Instead of buying something in size small, medium or large, you'll buy it in "size me," he said.quotesmarksleft.jpg

The Good Drone

Queensland police deploy drones in forensic first
1432790071256.jpg In an Australian-first, Queensland Police will deploy drones to help document crime scenes. The Brisbane Times reports.

quotemarksright.jpgTwo Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPAs) have been assigned to the QPS Photographics Section, ready to be sent anywhere in Queensland.

Police Minister Jo-Anne Miller said the drones will allow forensic investigators to survey crime scenes from overhead for the first time.

"The images the drones can capture will be invaluable when it comes to presenting evidence in court," she said.

"The drones will also be used in the forensic search for evidence in places that were previously inaccessible – for example, on a roof, down a cliff or over a very large distance."

Costing more than $23,000, the drones are made of carbon fibre, with one fitted with four motors and the other eight motors.

"Both drones are fitted with high resolution cameras capable of capturing stills, videos and 3D images," Ms Miller said.

"They have now been integrated into the Forensic Services Group as business as usual, meaning they are now available to officers to search challenging crime scenes.quotesmarksleft.jpg
