A little over a year ago, Rich Ranky was at Northeastern, working on research for his PhD about how to build a force-measuring sensor into a plastic component. Back then, Ranky was injecting conductive slurry into plastic pieces with a caulking gun. Now, his 3D printer, Donatello, prints patented sensors that measure temperature, vibration, heart sensors and electricity, all for a cost between $10 to $15.
Ever walk by a construction project in the city and wonder what the site will look like one day? Well, a team of seven seniors at Northeastern has created a new app for that.
