Printing lightweight, flexible, and functional materials
3D printing is revolutionizing the production of lightweight structures, soft robots and flexible electronics, but the technology struggles with complex, multimaterial integration. To print a flexible device, including the electronics, a 3D printer must be able to seamlessly transition from a flexible material that moves with your joints for wearable applications, to a rigid material that accommodates the electronic components.

Untangling the mechanics of knots
Got rope? Then try this experiment: Cross both ends, left over right, then bring the left end under and out, as if tying a pair of shoelaces. If you repeat this sequence, you get what's called a "granny" knot. If, instead, you cross both ends again, this time right over left, you've created a sturdier "reef" knot.

Slipping and sliding to major tennis success
Engineers at the University of Sheffield are working with the International Tennis Federation (ITF) on a device that can measure the effects of friction on tennis courts. Modern tennis players like Nadal, Murray and Djokovic don't just run around the court, they slide around it too. It's a move that wows audiences and amateurs, and can often give those players the edge over their opponents.

Seeing Quantum Motion
Seeing Quantum Motion
Consider the pendulum of a grandfather clock. If you forget to wind it, you will eventually find the pendulum at rest, unmoving. However, this simple observation is only valid at the level of classical physics-the laws and principles that appear to explain the physics of relatively large objects at human scale.

Secret to steady drone cameras in swans
Whooper swans stabilize their head with a complex neck that's tuned like a car suspension, Stanford engineers have learned. The finding has influenced their design of a camera suspension system that could allow drones to record steadier video. (Photo: Tom Langlands Photography) By solving how whooper swans keep their heads steady during flapping flight, Stanford engineers have developed a camera suspension system that could allow drones to produce crisper video images.

Gas mileage of vehicles on the road: Little progress since early ’90s
ANN ARBOR-Despite steady advancements in fuel-saving technologies in the last 25 years, on-road fuel economy for all vehicles has improved by less than a mile per gallon during that time-partly because it takes many years to turn over the fleet. In an update to research conducted six years ago, Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute say that actual, on-road fuel economy for the entire fleet of vehicles (including cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles) has improved from 16.9 mpg in 1991 to 17.6 mpg in 2013.
