This 3D printed titanium lattice has been designed to protect probes in future missions to Mars.
The protection is designed for probes that are intended to collect samples from the Martian surface and then return to Earth. The lattice crush zones are designed to absorb the impact of the probe upon crash landing on the Earth's surface.
The protective lattice has been designed by the UK-based Manufacturing Technology Council.
This is a mock design of a robotic arm that would relay a sense of touch and temperature to its owner.
The arm is the work of a team at the University of Nottingham in England, which is investigating how it could use 3D printers to build electrical, optical and even biological functions into the arm.
This rather odd looking creation is the embodiment of the MRI scan of the artist who produced it.
Named Inverse Embodiment, it mixes data from the MRI scan of the artist Tobias Klein and the structure of St Paul's Cathedral in London.
