But then comes the hard part: figuring out where to install hinges on the scaffold—that is, finding the best “hotspots”—to put on doors, shelves, and other attachments that ultimately make the cabinet fully functional.
In a way, proteins also have hotspots embedded in their structures. True to their name, “functional sites,” these intriguing nooks and crannies form intricate […] Continue Reading…

#440787 A Startup Is 3D Printing Bionic Arms for ...

Two years ago, prosthetics startup Unlimited Tomorrow launched TrueLimb, its next-generation bionic arm. Six years of research and development went into TrueLimb, and the technology has given hundreds of people in the US an affordable, non-invasive way to replace lost limbs. Now, a new initiative is taking TrueLimb to a part of the world where many people need it: Ukraine.
We’ve all seen the footage and read the headlines about bombings and casualties. What’s not in the news as much […] Continue Reading…
