ミケレ・マルケサン(3-D Printing事業部 副社長) より、先日のロボットのビデオに関するコメントがありました。英語ですが、ご覧ください：
The other day watching the Italian evening news (TG1 is the same as CBS News) I nearly fell off my chair, they were interviewing Scuola Superiore di Sant'Anna who's our customer using our printer since many years.
Scuola Superiore di Sant'Anna is a prominent university in Italy with collaborations with universities in USA and other countries and they have received prime time attention to showcase their latest development in robotics applied to different fields from military to biomedics to biology.
During the clip they introduced their studies on robotics and they showed some prototypes:
As you can see from the video attached there are two specific applications with Multi Jet Modelling parts and they are both impressive!
In one case there is a jumping cricket which we could use about parts resistance. Not to mention the carling used to study muscle/eye coordination. The most astonishing thou is a little device which like a submarine works underwater with propellers et al!!!! I can hardly imagine any other printer that could do that.
These are the main bullets of the video:
· Micro Robots sophisticated systems produced by Research centre Institute of Pisa Italy
· Mechanic insects able to dig under the rest of the quake, artificial carling to study human body, these are the micro robots produced from Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa in Italy
· Mr. Cesare Stefanini- Engineer of Scuola Sant’Anna said:
-These robots could be used like spies at enemy’s home-
· Mrs. Gabriella Bonsignor- Biologist of Scuola Sant’Anna said:
-By studying the behaviour of this carling robot we are able to better understand the coordination between eyes and muscles of the human body.
· Mr. Giuseppe Tortora, biomedical engineer of Scuola Sant’Anna said:
-This micro robot, controlled by a joystick, will be used by doctors in the future to pilot a endoscopic capsule in the stomach to acquire images and to make a diagnosis-
Overall this is a great video.
