Doesn’t the Z-axis on 3D-printers seem a little – underused? I mean, all it does is creep up a fraction of a millimeter as the printer works through each slice. It would be nice if it could work with the other two axes and actually do something interesting. Which is exactly what’s happening in the nonplanar 3D-printing methods being explored at the University of Hamburg. Printing proceeds normally up until the end, when some modifications to Slic3r allow smooth toolpaths to fill in the stairsteps and produce a smooth(er) finish. It obviously won’t work for all prints or printers, but it’s nice to see the Z-axis finally pulling its weight.

Locally sourced Basque food prepared by Michelin-star chefs may have been on the menu, but that didn’t satisfy Donald Trump during a G7 summit dinner in Biarritz, France on Saturday night (Aug. 24). According to reporting by the Guardian, heated debates began when the US president demanded the group readmit Russia. Russia was removed by the previously named G8 after it annexed Crimea in 2014.
During the seaside meal, French president Emmanuel Macron and European Council president Donald Tusk opposed Trump’s demands. A diplomat present told the publication that the evening was tense: “Most of the other leaders insisted on this being a family, a club, a community of liberal democracies and for that reason...

The Glia project aims to create a suite of free and open-source medical equipment that can be assembled cheaply and easily when and where it’s needed. Even essential tools like stethoscopes and tourniquets can be difficult to acquire in certain parts of the world, especially during times of war or civil unrest. But armed with a 3D printer and the team’s open-source designs, an ad-hoc factory can start producing these lifesaving tools anywhere on the planet.
Glia member [Tarek Loubani] has recently written a blog post discussing the team’s latest release: an otoscope that can be built for as little as $5. Even if you don’t recognize the name, you’ve almost certainly seen one of them in use. The...

For as long as piracy and counterfeiting have existed, there have been claims that groups engaged in the practices have links to other, more serious crimes. Over the past couple of decades the claims have persisted but even the most serious legal cases (ones for which people have been jailed for many years) have failed to turn up evidence that people running pirate sites, services, and similar platforms are connected to even more serious crimes. This week, however, following news from FACT that it had targeted numerous IPTV sellers and providers in the UK, Lesley Donovan – the National Coordinator for the multi-agency Government Agency Intelligence Network (GAIN) – repeated similar claims.

This week marked the official collapse of the populist government in Italy after Matteo Salvini effectively sabotaged the coalition and pulled out of the alliance with M5S. While Salvini may have been hoping to provoke new elections and capitalise on his party's lead in the polls, M5S and opposition PD are in no mood for new elections. With the encouragement of President Mattarella, the two parties are now in talks to try and form a new government. This...

Ahead of SpaceX’s experimental rocket launch Monday (Aug. 26), police warned nearby residents to leave their homes around launch time because the windows could shatter, according to the Brownsville Herald.
Those residents live in tiny Boca Chica Village, Texas, which sits less than 2 miles (3 km) from a SpaceX-operated launch site near the US-Mexico border along the Gulf Coast. SpaceX’s test of the so-called “Starhopper”—a prototype of a reusable shuttle meant for human transit—may well create an “overpressure event” capable of breaking glass in buildings nearby. The police-delivered warnings advise residents to, at a minimum, exit their homes when they hear police sirens around the 4pm launch...

There’s no doubting the allure of a nicely crafted LED cube; likewise, there’s no doubting that they can be a tremendous pain to build. After all, the amount of work scales as the cube of the number of LEDs you want each side to have, and let’s face it – with LED cubes, the bigger, the better. What to do about all that tedious lead forming?
[TylerTimoJ]’s solution is a custom-designed lead-forming tool, and we have to say we’re mighty impressed by it. His LED cubes use discrete RGB LEDs, the kind with four leads, each suspended in space by soldering them to wires. For the neat appearance needed to make such a circuit sculpture work, the leads must be trimmed and bent at just the right angles, a...

Photo: Warner Bros. I was excited to watch Cold War, the new film from Ida director Paweł Pawlikowski, now that it’s streaming on Amazon. Like Ida, Cold War is shot in gorgeous black and white and has a zoomed-in focus on the oppression felt by an individual during war.
Cold War jumps forward again and again so we can see the isolating effects over time, which is a really neat way to structure a movie that’s trying to show the impact of a seemingly endless standoff. It effectively turns into a series of connected shorts, showing various blips in a couple’s life.
What I found even more confusing was the relationship that it depicted. It’s torn apart and trampled again and again by war, then brought...

After all but declaring a bid in a campaign-testing New York Times op-ed—entitled “Trump Needs a Primary Challenge”—the one-term House representative from Illinois said on ABC’s This Week: “I’m going to run for president.”
Walsh coupled the announcement with a tweet and the launch of a campaign website, saying, “We can’t take four more years of Donald Trump.” Friends, I'm in. We can't take four more years of Donald Trump. And that's why I'm running for President. It won't be easy, but bravery is never easy. But together, we can...

Hong Kong has been transformed for months by the enormous, constantly evolving pro-democracy protests.
One of the largest was said to have included nearly 2 million people, an astounding figure in a region of 8 million. Demonstrators have swarmed Hong Kong’s streets, public transit, and shopping malls, as well as its international airport.
The protests have also been answered with violence from police and organized-crime thugs.
This weekend marks the 12th consecutive one in which protests have sprung up, starting with a massive human chain that snaked through Hong Kong on Friday evening and continuing with attacks on “smart” lampposts that some demonstrators see as surveillance tools.

Instagram has turned into an endless shopping experience, almost like a mall. It lets you wander, browse, even have some fun—but everything is designed to make you spend more money without any obstacles.
Some of this transformation has been obvious, a result of concretes steps by the app, and some has been a gradual, somewhat surreptitious, process.
The Information reported Aug. 22 that when Facebook started cracking the whip on Instagram last year to push the app to bring in even more profit, it ordered the photo-sharing app to double the number of ads on the platform.
Scrolling through my Instagram feed today, I found that for every three regular posts, one was an ad. On Stories, it varied, with ads...

One of the core lessons any physics student will come to realize is that the more you know about physics, the less intuitive it seems. Take the nature of light, for example. Is it a wave? A particle? Both? Neither? Whatever the answer to the question, scientists are at least able to exploit some of its characteristics, like its ability to bend and bounce off of obstacles. This camera, for example, is able to image a room without a direct light-of-sight as a result.
The process works by pointing a camera through an opening in the room and then strobing a laser at the exposed wall. The laser light bounces off of the wall, into the room, off of the objects on the hidden side of the room, and then back to the...

Al final de la Segunda Guerra Mundial en 1945, Europa estaba en ruinas. Una de las incontables víctimas de la guerra y sus años precedentes fue la ciencia europea. Antes de la guerra, Europa era el hogar de la mayoría de las más brillantes mentes científicas, pero sus efectos y el régimen de Hitler en Alemania pusieron fin a ello. Muchos científicos de origen hebreo (como Albert Einstein, entre muchos otros) tuvieron que huir a los Estados Unidos para evitar la persecución política, de la misma maneras que muchos otros tuvieron que exiliarse por oponerse a la ocupación Nazi de otros países. Cuando el polvo se aclaró, muchos más científicos habían emigrado a América, ya que las condiciones...

Image: Zens It’s been nearly five months since one of the all-time great Friday news dumps: On March 29th, Apple abruptly canceled the AirPower wireless charging mat that would supposedly be able to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously no matter where you placed them. But wireless charging firm Zens is betting it can do some of what Apple couldn’t by introducing the Zens Liberty.
Zens claims the Liberty uses a set of 16 overlapping wireless charging coils to let you charge your Qi-compatible devices from any spot on the mat — just like AirPower was supposed to, though AirPower was rumored to have 21 to 24 coils. The Zens Liberty can charge two devices at once, unlike AirPower’s...

Like the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer, the Black Widow trailer hasn’t been posted online yet, but here’s what it looks like.
Feige debuted the trailer during Marvel’s segment of Disney’s big Studios panel. It opens with a montage of footage collected from various Marvel movies, including The Avengers, Avengers: Endgame, and Captain America: Civil War. It sets up Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow as a two-timing spy, relying on conversations between Tony Stark and Romanoff in Civil War. After the Avengers footage, the trailer...

In the Studios panel at D23, Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige confirmed that Black Panther 2 has been scheduled for release on May 6, 2022. Director Ryan Coogler said the team is “taking their time with it” in order to get it right. That places Black Panther 2 directly between some of Marvel’s new franchises, like The Eternals, and other series installments, like Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. If San Diego Comic-Con was Marvel Studios’ way of ushering in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney’s biennial trade show D23 was a reminder that sequels to important movies are still coming. Unlike Star Wars, which is taking a theatrical break after...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will conclude the current Star Wars trilogy, and a new trailer showcased at Disney’s D23 Expo teases what that end looks like. Although Disney hasn’t made the trailer public, we can give you a brief description of what happened since we were there. The trailer opens with footage from all nine Star Wars films. A voiceover declares that there have been “a thousand generations, but this is your fight.” Rey, Poe, and Finn are preparing for the biggest fight of their life. Battleships tear through the skies, as Rey and Kylo Ren meet in the middle of a war-torn planet, ready to fight. The best bit of all? Rey is wielding a red, double-sided lightsaber.

In recent years website blocking has become one of the most widely-used anti-piracy enforcement mechanisms in the world. ISPs in several dozen countries are now required to prevent subscribers from accessing a variety of ‘pirate’ sites. While new blocks are added every month, research on their effectiveness has been rather scarce. Most ‘studies’ promoted by copyright holders conclude that blocking a site does indeed reduce traffic to the affected domains. While this is hardly surprising, less is known about where ‘blocked’ subscribers go instead. Do they simply give up and stop pirating? Are they finding ways to circumvent blockades? Do they decide to sign up for a paid streaming service such as...

McCrea initially opted not to become involved in the US lawsuit and in June, Van Stry’s lawyers filed for a default judgment in a Texas court. In common with most copyright cases, this one isn’t straightforward and seems to have been complicated by McCrea’s early non-participation. However, the former Pirate Party of Canada leader eventually had a change of heart.

Today marks thirty years since the Baltic Way – a peaceful demonstration where Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians stood hand in hand all the way from Tallinn to Vilnius to show their passion for freedom. On 23 August 1989, about 2 million people opened up their hearts and turned their backs to the Soviet Union to protest against the suppression of their cultures, languages and national identities. Even though 30 years have passed, the memory of the events still stays fresh in these nations‘ minds. Call for independence from the Soviet Union

23 August is a historic date for the Baltic states and for Eastern Europe as a whole. 80 years ago today, the Soviet and German foreign ministers Vyacheslav Molotov and Joachim von Ribbentrop made a secret pact to divide Europe between the two dictatorships. Exactly five decades later, two million people in the three Baltic states occupied by the Soviet Union would form a human chain to demand freedom. The secret protocol of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact designated Nazi and Soviet spheres of influence just days before World War II started with Adolf Hitler's attack on Poland. As a result of the pact, the USSR annexed the Baltic states, attempted to invade Finland, and took over parts of Romania. The protocol...
