cacheABLE Kinetic is a small electronic device that emits a bluetooth signal that enables the user to locate it via a dedicated smartphone app

Another day, another crowd funding campaign. This time it’s Optima Design which has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for the cacheABLE Kinetic.

Not to be disparaging towards this funding method, which gains in popularity amongst many firms and individuals who opt for it over other, often lengthy, funding or investment routes. In this case, Optima is hoping to raise £75,000 for this device that it designed and developed in-house.

The 3D printer is able to make things which cannot be manufactured by conventional processes.

Skanska is leading an 18-month programme to develop the world’s first commercial concrete printing robot. The company will use 3D concrete printing technology developed through research at Loughborough University, and apply it to real applications with a view to ‘revolutionising the design and construction process’.

The 3D printer is fitted to a gantry and a robotic arm and deposits a high–performance concrete precisely under computer control. It works by laying down successive layers of concrete until the entire object is created. The printer is said to be able to make things which cannot be manufactured by conventional processes, such as complex structural components, curved cladding panels and architectural features.

The Indiegogo campaign launched two days ago and has already reached 84% of its $50,000 funding goal. So, what is it about this nifty tool that is resonating with people?

If you read about design and the figureheads in today’s industry, you’ll probably come up with a list that can be counted on one hand (assuming you’ve not lost your pinky in a bar fight).

Apple’s Jony Ive, Dieter Rams from Braun, Yves Behar, Marc Newson, etc. etc. etc. You know the score.

But what connects these folks is that. while their work (or more accurately that of their teams) is similar, follows today’s design cues and customer’s requirements. It’s electronics, packaged.
