Dreams have come true for those with a sweet tooth, as three students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have connected a 3D printer to a soft serve ice cream machine! Still in its early stages of development, this nifty invention will not only cut out the “middle man” (the store) for access to quick ice cream, but also allows the customer to choose the shape of the scoop and see it be created, for e.g. a star shaped scoop!

A new device to enhance safety of drivers has been developed by the Biomechanics Institute (IBV) In Valencia, Spain. This new prototype system has been created to measure a driver’s heart rate and respiratory pace in order to alert the drivers as when they are dozing off behind the wheel. The sensor data embedded within the seatbelt indicates when a person is falling asleep and the developers envision an alarm going off to wake the driver before control of the vehicle is lost.
