3D printed handheld zero gravity coffee brewer successfully tested in space

Astronaut Kjell Lindgren brews the first `pour-over’ in space during Expedition 44/45 using an integrated 3D-printed Space Cup Brewer. He continues his terrestrial ritual of coffee preparation while aboard the International Space Station (ISS) despite the weightless environment. While many aspects of the process are unique to space, he is still able to wake up and 'smell the coffee'.

Blooms: Strobe-Animated Sculptures

These 3-D printed sculptures, called blooms, are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.
