3D printer and additive manufacturing companies are scaling up, raising capital and consolidating for good reason: There's a boom coming. "Here's where we are in terms of global adoption. Manufacturing is a $12 trillion market. Additive at the end of last year was $12 billion. So, it's 0.1% penetration. This is like being in the semiconductor industry in the early 70s ," said Desktop Metal CEO Ric Fulop. The best 3D printer for business and home use in 2021 Best 3D printers under $500 in 2021 Also consider that additive manufacturing played a key role in the supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic , but 3D printing could have had a much larger impact. If countries need to keep manufacturing within their own borders, grow jobs and have a lower impact on the environment 3D printing is going to have to scale up. Wall Street is noticing the additive manufacturing potential. The scale-up efforts of 3D printing companies are starting to pile up. Consider the … [Read more...] about 3D printing, additive manufacturing sector arms up to scale

Harish Jonnalagadda 28 Feb 2021 0 Source: Android Central Phone manufacturers have waged a war on bezels over the last four years, and the result is that even budget phones these days have ultra-thin bezels on all sides. Thin bezels mean you get a larger screen-to-body ratio, allowing brands to cram a larger screen without increasing the dimensions of the phone. For some context, the Galaxy S9+ had a 6.2-inch panel, and the Galaxy S21 offers the same screen size even though it is 6.4mm shorter. Xiaomi was the one to kick off this particular trend back in 2016 with the Mi Mix, which offered a 91.3% screen-to-body ratio. Xiaomi achieved this by changing the location of the front camera module to the bottom bezels, leading to an all-screen design. … [Read more...] about Why don’t we see any more pop-up selfie cameras?
Gaikai’s cloud gaming service is already available on several platforms including Facebook and LG televisions but they can soon add another client to their list: Samsung. Starting later this summer, Samsung Series 7000 units and Smart TVs will get the cloud gaming treatment as part of a service called Samsung Cloud Gaming. Engadget points out that a deal between the two companies has been in the works for nine months now. The service will essentially use the same technology that’s used to deliver the service to LG sets but the South Korean company will customize the experience with their own user interface. Gaikai CEO David Perry told the publication that Samsung had always been in their sights since they are the largest electronics manufacturer on the planet. He also outlined the basics of the deal which will see Samsung purchase dedicated bandwidth from the gaming provider on a per-device basis. Gaikai will be responsible for handling traffic as the service becomes more … [Read more...] about Cloud gaming coming to Samsung TVs this summer via Gaikai
Which is better for Earth : an electric or gas-powered vehicle? The answer to this question might seem blindingly obvious: Of course electric cars must be better for the environment, because they don’t have exhausts and so don’t emit greenhouse gasses as they drive. However, electric vehicles (EVs) aren't perfect, and they come with their own set of polluting problems. Notably, their batteries contain components, such as lithium , that require a significant amount of energy to source and extract. But battery production is just one part of an electric car's life span. A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they’re … [Read more...] about Is an electric car better for the planet?
The $829 (£799, AU$1,349) iPhone 12 has two rear cameras and Samsung's $800 (£769, AU$1,249) Galaxy S21 has three rear cameras. Are more cameras better? Or does a higher price mean better photos? To find out, I did a good old-fashioned camera shootout. The results surprised me. There aren't many people deciding between an iPhone 12 and Galaxy S21 based solely on their cameras. Maybe there is a small niche of professional photographers, like me, who'd use cameras to decide between a Galaxy S21 Ultra or an iPhone 12 Pro Max. But most people stick to what they know and if someone switches from iOS to Android or the other way around, cameras won't be the only deciding factor. Cut through the chatter Subscribe to CNET's Mobile newsletter for the latest phone news and reviews. With that acknowledgement of reality out of the way, let's take a look at these cameras. Despite a similar price, the Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 represent two different approaches to phone … [Read more...] about This iPhone and Samsung Galaxy camera comparison was not what I expected
