Research Team in India Uses 3D Software and 3D Printing to Make Prosthetic Ear

As part of a college program, a team from the College of Engineering, Pune(CoEP) in India has developed unique software, which helped them make a 3D printed ear in just one week for 32-year-old Rucha (not her real name) from Kondhwa. Typically, it takes about a month to make an artificial ear, but thanks to the newly developed Osto3D software that the CoEP team developed, that fabrication time was greatly reduced. The successful auricular prosthesis surgery was performed on Rucha last month, when doctors from the Armed Forces Medical College(AFMC) attached the artificial ear. The team used CoEP’s 3D Make Lab for the project,…

Raspberry Pi For Beginners: LED Connections, Bread-boards, and Programming

After seeing a couple of posts on Reddit asking for the proper way to connect LEDs to a microcontroller/microcomputer via GPIO, I decided to make this video.   This should guide you through how a breadboard is setup, how connections work for the Raspberry Pi, how LEDs work (generally), and how to create and execute a small bit of code to tie all of this together.  

Common Soldering Mistakes | Soldering

I have here two different pieces of copper that are from a standard [inaudible 00:09] power supply. One common soldering job might be to put a connector on something like this.   This piece of wire has been stripped and sitting out in the air for a long time and I wanted you to see how it looks when compared with something that’s just recently stripped. And holding them side by side, you can see that the one in my right hand is much, much cleaner and shinier. It has a pinkish appearance of nice, clean copper whereas, the one…
