Artist Jason Bruges and his design studio have created a light-based experience for visitors to the 2016 IFA industrial trade exhibitions in Berlin, Germany, titled “Pixel Constellation”! The art piece takes advantage of four piece of technology from LG Electronics in order to create the exhibit, along with a constantly changing light system meant to recreate the shimmering night sky. The exhibit itself uses light, sound, and architecture in its display, and will remain open at the IFA for the duration of the event this September. Check out the exhibit itself in the video below!

Airbus, leading aircraft manufacturer, has revealed their newest innovation: a 3D-printed airplane! The plane, called Thor, was unveiled at the International Aerospace Exhibition in Berlin, Germany, and shows off what innovations Airbus has come up with to introduce 3D printing to the manufacturing industry. The plane, which measures 13 feet long and weighing in at only 46 pounds, was designed as an affordable, easy-to-construct drone, as well as a testbed for future 3D-printing technologies that may be implemented into full-scale planes in the future. The Thor is composed of polyamide, and outside of the necessary electrical elements that allow it to fly, all of the Thor’s pieces are made from this material, such as the rotors, landing gear, and hull pieces. With the promise of alleviating air pollution and construction costs, Airbus is looking forward to the future of 3D printing in the airplane industry.
