Rings to turn light into words
2021-04-22 05:12

Déjà plusieurs années que nous vous parlons de la société Rayform, pour une innovation aussi pointue, magistrale que poétique. Cette startup issue de l’EPFL sculpte littéralement la lumière, soit en reflexion sur une plaque de métal, soit en diffusion au travers d’une matière transparente. Rayform lance aujourd’hui une gamme de bijoux qui exploitent directement cette technologie impressionnante. Invisible au premier coup d’oeil, la singularité des bijoux en or et diamants se révèle une fois qu’ils sont exposés à la lumière, car la surface de chaque bague semble lisse mais elle est en fait structurée avec grande précision de façon à refléter les rayons lumineux pour former un message de lumière.
Les messages sont au choix, et les modèles de bagues sont ici

The Coolest White, literally
2021-04-19 13:20

After the blackest black, the most electric phosphorescent, the most glamorous reflector, here is white whiter than white!
Researchers at Purdue University have developed an "ultra-white" paint that reflects 98.1% of sunlight and deflects infrared heat, allowing buildings to cool below the air temperature ambient! This feat is quite exceptional, the best white paints on the market (with titanium dioxide) arrive at just 85%, and showing little effectiveness in the short (UV) and long (infrared) lengths. A reflection of 98% with a wide spectral diffusion, this translates into less degrees in the building, the limitation of heat islands in the cities, and therefore very substantial energy savings. This new ultra-white paint owes its excellent performance to a careful mixing of particles of barium sulfate, a chemical compound used in white photographic paper and cosmetics. So this is the coolest paint in the world, but what is less (cool) is that your white shirt will then look a little "dirty gray" in front of this facade ...

3D printing clothes
2021-02-24 13:32

We know 3D printing for ten years and continues to evolve and surpass itself. Many fields have looked at this practice. Today it's the world of textiles that is interested in its possibilities, pieces already exist and were created by Iris Van Herpen for example. But they remain rigid, which is not the most pleasant to wear. Thanks to a chain mail structure, Tom Mallisson engineer at digit2widgets create lightness and flexibility in 3D prints. Imagine the future of textiles, we could combine all the possibilities of recycled plastics and elegantly transform them into comfortable clothes, and give à second life to our plastics wastes.
