Tornado Power? Check out the Atmospheric Vortex Engine…
A tornado is rarely something to be seen in a positive light, but the creators of the Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE) hope to harness properties of the extreme weather phenomenon to create cheap, renewable power. Currently under development by AVEtech, the AVE creates a contained wind vortex from which energy can be harvested at an estimated 3 cents per kilowatt-hour. The AVE recently received funding through Breakout Labs, bringing tornado-power just one step closer to reality.
Autodesk and Organovo Team Up to 3D Print Living Human Tissue
3D printers can fabricate everything from cars to bald eagle beaks, and soon they may even be able to print organs and limbs. Biological printer manufacturer Organovo has teamed up with CAD software developer Autodesk to create software that will design and print living tissue. By entering the realm of bioengineering, Autodesk is branching out from the fields of industrial design and architecture into what could possibly be the beginnings of synthetic body modification and medicine.
