One-handed exoskeleton CNC machine lends super humanized powers to creative builders of the future

In a world where innovation knows no bounds, Jasper Mallinson has created a groundbreaking prototype that pushes the boundaries of product design and wearable technology. His brainchild, the Mecha-Morphis Wearable CNC Machine, is nothing short of a modern marvel that promises to revolutionize the design manufacturing industries.

Mecha-Morphis is not your typical wearable exoskeleton. It’s a powerful, portable CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine that can be worn on your arm. What’s even more astonishing is that it’s small enough to fit comfortably, offering the wearer incredible mobility while working on intricate design and manufacturing tasks. If you are already feeling superhuman imagining the prospect of this wearable, you are not alone!

Designer: Jasper Mallinson

Imagine having a CNC machine at your disposal wherever you go. With Mecha-Morphis, this is now a reality. The device combines cutting-edge technology with ergonomic design, making it the perfect companion for architects, engineers, and designers who are always on the move. The frame of the portable and lightweight exoskeleton can move in six axes for six degrees of freedom in any direction. All the computer circuitry and other hardware attached to the machine is housed inside a small exposed backpack with the circuitry showing you mean business.

One of the most impressive features of Mecha-Morphis, envisioned as a part of Jasper’s final project from the Innovation Design Engineering masters course (by the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London) – is its versatility. Whether you need to carve intricate details on a piece of wood, sculpt delicate curves on metal, or 3D print a complex prototype – this wearable CNC machine can handle it all. It’s a design tool that adapts to your needs and allows you to unleash your creativity, no matter where you are. The Mecha-Morphis Wearable CNC Machine is not only resourceful for professionals but also for students and hobbyists. It offers the opportunity to learn and experiment with CNC technology in a portable, accessible way. The one-handed exoskeleton of sorts is a stepping stone for the next generation of designers and engineers.

Moreover, Mecha-Morphis is designed with sustainability in mind. It uses eco-friendly materials and efficient energy consumption, aligning with the global trend towards greener, more responsible manufacturing practices. It’s a testament to how innovation and environmental consciousness can go hand in hand. Empowering professionals to break free from traditional workshop constraints and explore new horizons, the Mecha-Morphis Wearable CNC Machine traverses the boundaries of conventional design, offering a glimpse into the future of creative freedom.

Bugatti Bolide minus its exoskeleton is still desirable and the safest hypercar on the planet

What’s the fastest car on the planet right now? Well, Chiron Super Sport most definitely. That’s about to change with the new Bugatti Bolide track hypercar clocking over 310 mph. Just reading that makes me dizzy!

The French speed demon is a Bolide stripped down naked to showcase the F1 composite-based monocoque body shell. It’s been developed with the same stringent requirements a Le Mans race car must go through, and that shows in its performance quotient. Bolide is still a year away from rolling off the production lines for elite buyers but this barebones version is already giving us the Mad Max vibes.

Designer: Bugatti

Bugatti clearly demonstrates here with the Bolide shell that even in its bare form, the hypercar still induces the desire to take it on a spin. It’s that good. For us, it could be the coolest hair-raising go-kart you could kick off your Formula-1 journey on. Coming back to the Bolide in the making, remember it has to go through the toughest test for any car on this planet. Hence, the hypercar faired well in the rollover protection test in which the structure is subject to 7.5 tons of force on the A-pillar.

The mind-boggling speed topping well over 310 mph is attributed in part to the power-to-weight ratio of 0.67 horsepower per pound. That’s because the Bolide weighing just 2,734 pounds has a monstrous power delivery of 1,825 horsepower courtesy of the 8.0-liter W16 engine. In the computer simulations of the hypercar at the legendary Nürburgring racetrack, the best lap time of 5 minutes 23.1 seconds was achieved. That’s 4 seconds shy of the record held by Porsche 919 Evo.

Bugatti will only be making 40 limited edition units of the Bolide, making it an elusive buy for the influential billionaires who’ll be more than willing to part away with the asking price tag of more than $4.3 million.
