IG and NASA collaborate to design 3D-printed buildings for the moon

IG and NASA collaborate to design 3D-printed buildings for the moon BIG and 3D-printed building company ICON have revealed they are working on Project Olympus, which aims to develop robotic construction for the moon. The architecture firm and SEArch+ (Space Exploration Architecture) were enlisted for the project by ICON after it received a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) government contract boosted with funding from NASA. Called Project Olympus, it aims to develop a way to create a 3D-printed infrastructure for living on the moon using materials found on its surface. Project Olympus aims to explore building on the moon "With...

"The virtual world is taking over the real world," says virtual designer Anthony Authié of Zyva Studio

"The virtual world is taking over the real world," says virtual designer Anthony Authié of Zyva Studio Digital designer Anthony Authié of Zyva Studio and visualisation artist Charlotte Taylor and have collaborated on an NFT auction of Architoys, a range of capsules containing fantasy architecture projects. The aluminium capsules, which are the same size as an AirPods case, contain a watch-like mechanism that can display a series of digital images of virtual architectural environments. They can also store digital images and data files relating to a fantasy project. "We wanted to give people the opportunity to collect a one-of-a-kind architectural...

In a video posted on his Instagram account, Precht said that non-fungible tokens offered creatives an exciting opportunity to make money. But he said the carbon emissions associated with creating the tokens was "horrible". "This leaves such an ecological guilt for me that this time, I have to say no to that," he added.
