Four Short Takes (World's First 3D-Printed Office, Milk From Peas, Merge VR Goggles, Students Use 3D Printed Rocket Engine)

#1 - World's First 3D-Printed Office Building Completed in Dubai

Adam Williams | May 25, 2016

3D printing technology promises to revolutionize architecture in the near-future, allowing designers to literally click-and-print complex buildings at a lower cost and faster speed than traditional construction methods allow. Another step forward in the field comes via Dubai, where what's hailed as the world's first 3D-printed office was recently completed.

The Bay Area fosters a culture of forward thinkers and new ways to solve problems in our world, including in our food system. Ripple Foods is one such startup in Silicon Valley hoping to disrupt the dairy industry with pea protein.
The company joins a growing list of game-changing food startups that have launched out of the lab and into the consumer market in just the last few years. Memphis Meats uses animal cells to make lab-grown beef, Impossible Foods makes a plant-based burger and Clara Foods uses yeast to produce egg whites without the chicken.

Merge is now selling its ultra-cheap VR Goggles which work with both iOS and Android devices in Target stores. Despite not being the most aesthetically appealing VR headset to wear, Merge does offer the cheapest multi-platform VR headset (outside of Google Cardboard) on the market. This would be a great entry device for people looking to give virtual reality a try.

3D printing can be used to create all sorts of weird and wonderful things, whether it be a complete office to a fully functional motorcycle, it all seems to be possible. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that students at the University of California San Diego have managed to create and launch a rocket that uses a 3D printed engine.
The surprising part of it is that these students actually managed to beat the likes of NASA to the punch. Apparently they are the first university group to have successfully achieve launch with their design.
