Soft-body manta ray-inspired bot uses surrounding water as one of the electrodes to contract silicone pockets of hydrogel that flap the wings. It’s speedy, strong, temperature robust, wireless and almost invisible. Developed by Tiefeng Li of Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. Article at ScienceMag and here’s the paper.
It keeps proper time and comes with an off switch, making this robotic third arm infinitely better than a human drummer
Simply intuitive – feel how atoms connect!

Coil pot glass 3D printer that uses a glass printing process called G3DP which apparently gives control over geometry and optical qualities such light transmission, reflection and refraction to affect the transparency and colour variation.
The best thing about this is that the glass is over 1000°C and whole thing glows.
