One of the things that blows my mind about this new age of invention, this new industrial revolution that many call it – is how people change and adapt. It could be that technology has removed the barriers, or it could be that we are facing a resurgence in our human creativity now that the tools are more accessible. Either way, change is in the air.
As we wandered around the incubator/accelerator in Somerville MA, Greentown Labs, our host Mark Vasu, introduced us to different companies in the space, particularly the ones doing something with 3D. During that time, we met Kyle Dell'Aquila, Industrial Designer at Rise Robotics. This man’s passion and intensity for design was evident from the moment we shook hands. Kyle graduated from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) and you get a sense of how he sees design and engineering coming together.
Watch this short video to see how Kyle and the Rise Robotics team solved a 3D printing problem. They needed a solid handle for their prototypes and they kept breaking. What they did is quite ingenious. 70 seconds worth of video from Kyle in how they solved it. Oh, and you should really check out the Rise Robotics website, too, for the future of robot arms and legs, robot muscles, if you will.
